Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney plunged into freezing water for charity

Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney recently announced (confirmed) their engagement, but instead of sitting at home planning their wedding, they’ve been hitting the streets (or Lake Michigan) in the name of charity. That’s right, the happy couple took part in the Chicago Polar Plunge on Sunday to benefit the local chapter of the Special Olympics.

A few other celebs were on hand for the special occasion, including Taylor’s Chicago Fire co-stars David Eigenberg, Randy Flagler, Jon Seda and Brian Geraghty and Vince Vaughn, who was the guest of honour because a bunch of people on Twitter got the hashtag #VinnyDippin trending? Whatever, it was for a good cause.

It’s official! Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney are engaged!

Engagement rumours have been swirling around Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney for months now, and it was pretty much revealed that Taylor proposed over Christmas months ago. They may have tried to stay mum about it for a while, but now it’s official: they’re going to be Mr. and Mrs. Gaga! Apparently the proposal happened on Valentine’s Day, but I ain’t falling for that.


He gave me his heart on Valentine's Day, and I said YES!

This is cute – I don’t like Gaga at all but it kinda warms my cold heart to know that there is some part of Stefani Germanotta that’s somewhat normal and not all about the grandiose, tired-ass production she puts on in her public life.

Congrats to the happy couple!

Did Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney get engaged this Christmas?

lady gaga taylor kinney

It’s the question no one everyone’s desperate to find out the answer to: did Lady Gaga and longtime boyfriend Taylor Kinney get engaged this Christmas? Every fucker else seems to have done, so why not Gaga? There’s nothing official, but wedding bells have been ringing for these two all this year, and Gaga was playing coy about a possible engagement all the way back in April on the Howard Stern Show, so… it could be happening!

Here’s what we do know: on Christmas Day, Gaga tweeted the following:


And that’s… it. That’s all we’ve got, folks. In Touch Weekly seems to think they’ve got engaged, as well, though I realize that’s not really adding much credibility to the story. Only time will tell, Little Monsters. Only time will tell.

Lady Gaga Thinks Singers Should Write Their Own Songs

Lady+Gaga+37th+Annual+Kennedy+Center+Honors

Lady GagaForbes8th richest celeb under 30, has some strong opinions on the music industry, and she shared them in a recent Yahoo interview. She revealed that she writes about “90 percent” of her songs, and thinks everyone should follow suit. And if not…look out! Via Vibe:

If you’re not gonna write your own music you better be able to blow. Because if you can’t blow, there’s no reason to do the job. But then you think about artists that can’t really sing, that have songs written for them, and it’s like, well why are they artists?

Hee hee, she said “blow.” No but seriously, while I totally understand and respect her opinion, I can’t help but think of my dear Britney Spears, who doesn’t write her own music and can’t really sing live, but still delivers a helluva show. And I think there’s gotta be something said for performers. There are singers, musicians, and there are performers. Gaga happens to be all three, but I don’t think there’s anything terrible about not having the pipes if you can still put on a great performance.

What do you think about her statement? Agree or disagree?

Lady Gaga reveals she was raped as a teenager

lady gaga howard stern

I feel like Lady Gaga has talked about being raped as a teenager before, but I must have been imagining that because she apparently made the revelation during an interview with Howard Stern this week, and everyone is going crazy. It’s messed up that she was raped, but people seem to be more interested in the fact that her abuser may have been none other than Dr. Luke.

“I wrote a song called ‘Swine.’ The song is about rape. The song is about demoralization. The song is about rage and fury and passion, and I had a lot of pain that I wanted to release. I said to myself, ‘I want to sing this song while I’m ripping hard on a drum kit, and then I want to get on a mechanical bull’—which is probably one of the most demoralizing things that you can put a female on in her underwear—’and I want this chick to throw up on me in front of the world so that I can tell them, you know what? You could never, ever degrade as much as I could degrade myself, and look how beautiful it is when I do.’”

“I went through some horrific things that I’m able to laugh [at] now, because I’ve gone through a lot of mental and physical therapy and emotional therapy to heal over the years. My music’s been wonderful for me. But, you know, I was a shell of my former self at one point. I was not myself. To be fair, I was about 19. I went to Catholic school and then all this crazy stuff happened, and I was going, ‘Oh, is this just the way adults are?’…I was very naïve.”

“You keep alluding to…were you raped by a record producer?” Stern asked.

“I don’t…I don’t want to…” Gaga replied. “Happy times! Let’s talk about happy things!”

Oh, shit. It’s Kesha‘s lawyer, Mark Geragos, that claims Dr. Luke is the record producer behind Gaga’s rape (and of course behind Kesha’s, as well), but both Dr. Luke’s and Gaga’s publicist are trying to clear up that shit storm real quick:

“Mark Geragos’ statement is completely false and defamatory,” a rep for Dr. Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald, said in a statement obtained by E! News Tuesday. “Luke met Lady Gaga twice for less than half an hour total in those two meetings combined. He has never been alone with her and never touched her. Neither meeting was in that time frame reported.”

Gaga’s publicist tells E! News: “This ridiculous, manufactured link between Lady Gaga and the Kesha-Dr. Luke lawsuit is utterly incomprehensible. This simply isn’t true and how dare someone take advantage of such a sensitive matter.”

“I went through some horrific things that I’m able to laugh [at] now, because I’ve gone through a lot of mental and physical therapy and emotional therapy to heal over the years,” Gaga told Stern this morning. “My music’s been wonderful for me. But, you know, I was a shell of my former self at one point [after the assault]. I was not myself. To be fair, I was about 19. I went to Catholic school and then all this crazy stuff happened, and I was going, ‘Oh, is this just the way adults are?’…I was very naïve.”

Oh man, this is such a mess all around. Was it Dr. Luke? I mean, I wouldn’t be surprised, but who knows. If Gaga doesn’t want us to know, it’s not our business.

Young celebrities are richer than ever

Forbes released their annual list of the highest earning celebrities under the age of 30 this week, and perhaps unsurprisingly, they’re mostly all pop stars. They base the list off of their Celebrity 100 list and research they gathered to put that one together, so without further ado, prepare to cry yourself to sleep over your stack of student loans and leftover Thanksgiving food tonight as you realize just how much money these young people have and how much you (we) don’t:

1. Justin Bieber, age 20, $80 million
2. One Direction, average age 21, $75 million
3. Taylor Swift, age 24, $64 million
4. Bruno Mars, age 29, $60 million
5. Rihanna, age 26, $48 million
6. Miley Cyrus, age 21, $36 million
7. Jennifer Lawrence, age 24, $34 million
8. Lady Gaga, age 28, $33 million
9. Avicii, age 25, $28 million
10. Skrillex, age 26, $18 million

Please tell me how on God’s green earth SKRILLEX made $18 million. Like, how is that just? How is it even possible? My mind is blown. Avicii is another surprise. I know people were nuts about ‘Wake Me Up’ and ‘Hey, Brother’… but $28 million worth of crazy? I mean, damn.

Lady Gaga Answers Fan Questions On Reddit; Avoids Talking About R. Kelly

Lady+Gaga

Lady Gaga took to Reddit to do an AMA (“Ask Me Anything”). Titling the post, “I am Lady Gaga. AMAA. Let’s go Cheek To Cheek like I did with Tony Bennett on my number one album.” (gag me — or maybe gag-a me), Gaga was thrilled to answer all kinds of questions from her fans…except anything to do with R. Kelly and Terry Richardson.

The way Reddit works is you post something, and depending on how much people love or hate it, they vote the post up or down. The top most voted question in Lady Gaga’s AMA is currently unanswered by Gaga, and it is:

Just wondering why you would want to work with R Kelly who was accused dozens of times for sexual assault, and Terry Richardson who was also accused several times for sexual assault, for your (cancelled) music video, which some have seen as a literal ad for rape?

In the video you say “Will I ever walk again?” and R Kelly as the doctor says “Yes, if you let me do whatever I want with your body,” and “when you wake up you’ll be pregnant”. Then there are scenes with your “unconscious” body when R Kelly and the nurses are all climbing over you.

You say you’re an ambassador for youth, and you run a youth “charity”, so why would you do something like that, knowing millions of young girls worldwide are watching your every move?

Because it’s at the top, it means it’s the question people would most like her to address; Gaga hasn’t typed a single word about it. I’m disappointed, but not surprised. I’d really love to know her answer.

As for what she did answer: questions about her meat dress (it was made by a butcher and held together with “some fishing line”), what her guilty pleasure music is (Garth Brooks), and what her hobbies are (“healing, meditation, and helping to take care of those around me”), as well as cooking.

Woo freakin hoo.
