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.

We asked you to vote on the biggest events of the summer and here are your results!
You voted Cory Monteith’s death the most shocking.
Your Biggest WTF of the summer was Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus’ MTV VMA disaster.
Best celeb fight was Amanda Bynes vs. everyone on Twitter.
Best fashion moment was Kim Kardashian’s terrible MET Gala Dress:
The majority of you are NOT excited about the return of Lady Gaga.
Thanks for participating! Hopefully we have much to look forward to, gasp at, and gossip about this fall.

Sharon Osbourne pulls no punches and says exactly whatever comes to her mind, and considering Lady GaGa and her own daughter, Kelly, have had some serious issues in the past, it’s not at all surprising that she’s got an issue with GaGa’s whole “anti-bullying” thing. If you remember right, during her last tour, GaGa planned to have mobile counseling vans available for all of her Little Monsters. It all seemed like a great idea… but Sharon thinks it was bullshit and “just a publicity stunt”, as she described it in her upcoming book Unbreakable.
“By not repudiating her fans’ bullying, she was condoning it. That’s why I called her a hypocrite.
“I was so disappointed because I had always been a huge fan. I have been to three of her shows and she’s undeniably a very talented woman.
“But you can’t bang on about being anti-bullying and then refuse to tell your fans to stop haranguing other young women with nasty threats.”
True, true. I mean, she was forced to speak up on the Perez Hilton thing, but that certainly wasn’t because she’s anti-bullying. Her fans are some of the most insufferable assholes out there, and she doesn’t REALLY care about how they act, just cares that they’re around to cheat the charts for her and continue putting money in her pocket. Oh yeah, and the “applause”. She lives for that shit. (Insert eyeroll here.)
I don’t really care about Kelly Osbourne and I’m not siding with her in the little spat with GaGa because I never really got what was happening there, but Sharon is raw and I love her.

I’m not sure where this rumour was born other than in the bowels of hell, but apparently word was going around that Lady GaGa and Rihanna were due to collaborate – or rather, that they’d already recorded a duet together. Interesting, but ultimately untrue, I’m afraid. Just because Rihanna recently claimed that she’d done a “monster collaboration” does not mean it was with our favourite atelier.
GaGa set the record straight during an interview with KIIS-FM, saying:
“Well, no, that’s not true. But, I mean, it’s a rumor, I guess. It’s a good rumor. I like Rihanna, so, it’s just not true.”
“Well, Rihanna is wonderful and I always like hanging out with her when I see her.”
I’m sure they totally hang out. Pfft. They’re like oil and water – GaGa is on so many uppers she can’t sit still, and Rihanna smokes so much weed she goes catatonic. I don’t particularly see that as a match made in friendship heaven, but who knows. Weirder things have happened.

Here I’ve been thinking Lady GaGa‘s new album, ARTPOP, was going to leak any day and turns out… she hasn’t even finished it! That’s right, the mermaid appropriator is still working on her next piece of “art” and is feeling what all the world’s great designers must feel like when they create beautiful couture for runways in Paris and Milan. Of course she does.
in the final days finishing ARTPOP. i feel like an atelier. refining seams. ironing fabrics. needling the last thread of my couture creation

It was this amazing moment today my head down gazing at the soundboard–the music came on i looked up + knew it was ARTPOP it all made sense

Man, this woman loves herself. She really thinks she’s amazing. I mean, listen, I know it’s showbiz and giant egos are a dime a dozen, but some people are just so brazen about it – it’s shocking. But I’d better watch out – I could be accused of being the art police! Lord knows if you don’t like Lady GaGa, it’s because you don’t “get” high art. Pffffffft.
ARTPOP is actually due for release on November 11th. We all wait with bated breath, I’m sure.
