Lady GaGa’s ‘ARTPOP’ Is Like Reverse Warhol Or Something

lady gaga

Lady GaGa‘s new album, ARTPOP, leaked online last week. I downloaded it because I’m a masochist, which is why I’m even writing up this story. The Lady herself did a sit-down interview with The Daily Mail in which she rambled on about the artistic significance of the record and started calling it the reverse of Andy Warhol and a bunch of other garbage.

Here, let’s let her speak for herself:

“Well I’d define it in lots of different ways. On the album I say, ‘We could belong together ARTPOP‘, so in the simplest way I would say the dream of these two things belonging, art and pop together but with art in the front.

“We sort of like to say if we can belong together you and I, or me and my fans – if we can belong together in this room and make love then maybe our dream of these two things – art and pop – belonging together, maybe that could come true.”

“So the intention of the album was to put art culture into pop music, a reverse of Warhol. Instead of putting pop onto the canvas, we wanted to put the art onto the soup can.”

ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz… What is she even talking about anymore? Seriously? Making love with her fans in a soup can? I just… no. Make it stop immediately.

Well, the YouTube Awards Were a Bit of a Mess…

Did anyone watch the YouTube Awards last night? They weren’t all that widely promoted online (I don’t think so, anyway) and I wouldn’t have even known they were on if it weren’t for people talking about what a hot mess they were on Twitter. And indeed, they were DEFINITELY a hot mess. While some big stars did take part in the event, it all seemed off-kilter and not quite right. Plus, you know an event is fucking bizarre when Lady GaGa is the most normal thing about it.

Some prizes were given out, of course (it is an awards show, after all); Eminem took Artist of the Year (HOW?), Macklemore and Ryan Lewis were named the YouTube Breakthroughs and Taylor Swift grabbed the YouTube Phenomenon award for ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’. All in all, it was pretty underwhelming and totally unnecessary. Plus, a large part of it was scripted by Lena Dunham, who makes me want to jump from the roof of a very tall building and also explains a lot of why it was such a bizarre night.

Check out some red carpet photos from the YouTube Awards arrivals below. Did you watch the stream? Is it just another bullshit ceremony? (Yes.)

Katy Perry and Lady GaGa Aren’t Competing, Guys! (Yes, They Are!)

lady gaga katy perry

Some people have suggested that Lady GaGa and Katy Perry must be in some kind of rivalry because their singles were vying for the top spot in the charts at the same time and I guess because they’re both female pop stars. And while Katy has undeniably done way, WAY better than GaGa this time around, Katy wants to clear the air and let you all know that there’s no bad blood between them and there’s room enough for everyone in this here business of show.

From Entertainment Weekly:

“Gaga and I like to publicly dismiss it because it’s not healthy. You want to feel music. You want it to resonate and relate to you. You can’t look at it like a competition because you ruin the reason why you love music. But I think that sometimes our fan groups are so big and strong, they use it as ammunition.”

Well, no, what you mean to say is that Lady GaGa’s fans are absolutely fucking horrendous and probably the worst fans out there. You so much as note that Mother Monster had a bad day and they’re quick to tell you to get AIDS and die. Really lovely group of people, they are. KatyCats are bitches quite often, but they’re not going to wish death and destruction upon you.

Anyway, Katy, we’re not stupid – it’s not a competition if you’re clearly winning. Get it, girl.

Kelly Osbourne Apologized To Lady Gaga For “Acting Like A Child”

Kelly+Osbourne

Truly shocking news: Kelly Osbourne apologized to Lady Gaga for behaving like a childish twit after Gaga tried to apologize to her with a birthday cake. She tweeted,

@ladygaga I acted like a child last night. Just not into publicity stunts call me & we will end this like adults I dont want 2 fight anymore

That’s pretty close to a real apology. “Just not into publicity stunts” is a little snippy, and a little “sorry that what you did upset me” instead of “sorry I acted stupid” BUT she DID say, “I acted like a child” so I’m going to give Kelly props. For someone who’s not into publicity stunts though, how does she explain her history of twitter tirades against Gaga and slamming her in the press?

No, no, still, I’m giving Kelly props. Good job. Way to act your real age of 29 instead of 9.

Kelly Osbourne Boorishly Rejects Lady Gaga’s Apology

lady-gaga-sharon-osbourne

Lady Gaga might be pretentious and weird as hell, but compared to Kelly Osbourne, she’s Grace Kelly. Gaga tried to extend a peace offering to Miss Osbourne and her mom Sharon; both are crazy-mad at her. So when Gaga performed on X Factor, she brought along a birthday cake and took a photo of it with mum Sharon, sharing the pic with a simple, “Happy Birthday Kelly.” She didn’t have to do any of this, by the way.

Kelly responded by flipping out in a series of tweets. Here’s the first:

Not to be ungrateful but why would you send me a birthday cake via my MOTHER in a country half the would away? #JustSendItToME #LoveNotWar

But she wasn’t done. She then put a photo of the cake on Instagram and added, “#EatMyShit #Hypocrisy” and tweeted it as well.

Guys, she STILL wasn’t done. Here are the rest of the tweets about the apology cake:

#StefaniStopIt!

You are so far behind you think you are first!

I live for a #Cause not for the #Applause!!!!!!!

Guys, don’t hate me, it’s a guilty pleasure…like #SimplyRed!

I like desert [sic], but i prefer the truth… it’s sweeter

‘Let them eat cake’ #MarieAntoinette

Gaga responded simply with,

I didn’t know it was your B-day until this afternoon. Meant as a peace offering. Happy Birthday.

I mean come on, even if you don’t like Gaga, was Kelly Osbourne’s response not incredibly boorish and childlike? She tweeted that she was sad about Lou Reed’s death, so perhaps she was taking it out on Gaga. Who knows.

Kelly Osbourne turned 29 yesterday.

Has Lady GaGa Finally Completely Lost Her Mind?

lady gaga

Lady GaGa is over in the UK right now, and as part of her promo for the upcoming release of ARTPOP, she hit The X Factor for a special performance of ‘Venus’ and some weird song about how you can do whatever you want with her body. Oh right, it’s that R. Kelly duet ‘Do What U Want’ with the thong on the cover, right? Anyway, I know what I’d like to do with her body: put it in a straight jacket and get her straight to the nearest mental institution. Seriously, what in the hell is wrong with this woman?

It’s all a mess, and it seems to get worse with every passing performance. I thought the iTunes Fest performance was crazy until I saw this. The writhing and “dancing” she’s doing needs, like, clinical diagnosis or something. Not good.
