Well, sort of. Apparently Lady GaGa and R Kelly did a duet (WHY?) called ‘Do What U Want’. The song is from ARTPOP and it’s also being used in a Best Buy commercial in the US right now, apparently. It’s another total disaster, but I suppose it showcases GaGa’s “edgy” side, because what says edgy if not getting your ass out and taking a close up picture of it in a thong? Kim Kardashian would be proud.
I’m not quite sure what the point of any of this is. I don’t understand the photo, I don’t understand the child’s handwriting on the cover, I don’t understand why these two are working together… why?

Lady Gaga is a big fan of social media. Personally, I think she could do a much better job using it. Her instagram account is boring as hell. Mostly selfies. But apparently, the instagram people have a different opinion. They were concerned by some of her latest photos and emailed her essentially asking if she was okay because “members of the instagram community raised concern.”
We know this because Gaga tweeted a screencap of the email with,
what the actual hell. hahahaha
The rest of the email (from “Instagram” to Gaga) said,
Members of the Instagram community have raised concerns for your well-being after seeing posts you’ve shared. We’re reaching out to provide you with some important safety information.
As for the concerning photos she posted? Aside from numerous selfies (like the one above) and shots of her latest album cover, she posted these handwritten journal entries/lyrics/poems/whatever (from Instagram):
The first photo shows a cigarette in the journal. A “little monster” was concerned that Gaga was smoking cigarettes, to which another monster responded,
She probably put the cigarette their because it goes good with the lyrics. Gaga wouldn’t smoke anything that can damage her voice. :)

I think we can all sorta agree that Lady GaGa‘s new music is shit and that ARTPOP is going to be a mess – though admittedly, ‘Applause’ has really grown on me. Whatever, I’m secure in who I am, I can own up to that! Either way, she’s released the lyric video for ‘Aura’, which features on her new album and the soundtrack for the new Robert Rodriguez film, Machete Kills.
If that’s not enough, GaGa is even IN the movie as La Chameleon. If ever there was a perfect movie role for her, this is it. Mel Gibson, oddly, is also in it. Not so sure about that bit of the casting.
What do you think of ‘Aura’? I think it’s absolutely horrendous, but I suppose to each her own. It’s like 9 songs in one, though. Pick a direction, girl.

As the release of Lady GaGa‘s ARTPOP nears, it’s only fair that her former choreographer Laurieann Gibson steps out of the shadows to remind you of what a hot mess Mother Monster is in the dance department. That’s right, Laurieann claimed that GaGa is “rhythmically challenged” but praised her for trying her best, anyway.
From Australia’s Mornings:
“The most incredible thing about that particular artist was that she was fearless. Creating something before management, before a record deal… to be able to pull out of someone who wasn’t necessarily a dancer and maybe had a limited rhythmic ability…
“To me, everybody is a dancer. It was beautiful to work with someone who was rhythmically challenged because it helped me stretch my ability and come up with all those fantastical ideas.”
Ouch, that’s a bit rough, but I kinda love it. Besides, as far as GaGa’s concerned, this is the attitude to have:

Lady Gaga tweeted her brand new album cover for her brand new album, ARTPOP, and it’s kind of creepy but maybe kind of cool? The cover depicts a statue of Gaga as done by her favorite artist that she name drops in “Applause”, Jeff Koons. I like it. The digitally shattered “The Birth Of Venus” painting is a bit heavy-handed, but it works.
I like it because it reminds me of those statues in the milk bar in A Clockwork Orange.
Gaga has since made it her twitter background and icon. So get ready to see it, and many parodies of it, all over the internet.

Elton John is coming out with a new album (with a song inspired by Lindsay Lohan, I’m sure it will be a real winner) so here comes the publicity. Not sure who leaked this, but let’s file it under, “Yeah That Happened.” Apparently Elton John is trying to set up Lady Gaga with Johnny Depp. This makes no sense because
1. Elton John recently admitted that he has a hard time even getting a hold of Lady Gaga.
2. Lady Gaga is in a relationship with actor Taylor Kinney.
3. Johnny Depp is in a relationship with actress Amber Heard.
4. Why would he care? Yeah, Gaga is his son’s godmother, but it still doesn’t make sense, because of points #2 and #3.
They’re going so far as to say he set up a “surprise blind date” for them. Here’s even more from Entertainmentwise:
A source revealed: “Elton was determined to hook up Johnny and Gaga,” adding: “While the meeting was under the guise of a future musical collaboration, Elton is convinced the two superstars would make an amazing power couple even though they’re both dating other people right now.”
Apparently the duo “bonded over music, flirted a little and basically got to know each other. By the end of the night, they’d already made plans to see each other again. Elton just sat there grinning.”
Such fan fiction. If this happens, I’m sure Ke$ha will be devastated. The only steady relationship Johnny Depp needs to be in is one with a shower.
