Lady Gaga‘s been keeping it somewhat low key lately (or maybe I’ve just been ignoring her), so I wasn’t too exhausted off to bat to see her pop up on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform ‘Artpop’. It’s a terrible song and an absolute racket, but this version is actually pretty inoffensive.
I like the start on the piano – Gaga can actually sing and sing well when she’s not lost in her own moronic ego. You sorta have to ignore the lyrics to this song, which are a bit daft and ~anti-establishment~ and up herself (as usual), but seriously, I’ve seen worse. Good to see she’s adopted the Donatella Versace wig as part of her act now. She also has zero rhythm and should never dance, but uh, besides that, right on!
Side note: has she got even MORE plastic surgery in the past few months, or is this just a weird makeup job? She doesn’t look ANYTHING like herself!

Lady GaGa has been filming the video for “G.U.Y. (Girl Under You)”, and she hoped to have an exotic theme for the shoot, complete with fancy animals… that apparently bite her. That’s right, everyone’s favourite “artist” got bitten by a slow loris and just the visual of that is the most majestic thing I think I have ever offered you on this site.
From The New York Post:
“The slow loris is the cutest creature on the planet, and Lady Gaga wanted to use it in one scene, but it nipped her,” a source told me. “They put it back in its box and took it away in disgrace.”
The pop star wasn’t hurt. “She just laughed about it,” the source added. “She was a good sport.”
Aw, well that’s nice. The exotic animal person apparently also brought a baby kangaroo and an exotic goat to the set, but none of the were used. Apparently GaGa wanted to use the goat, but was told no by the California State Parks Department. I don’t really get it – how in the hell does the Parks Dept. guy get to tell her what animal she can use, and if she wasn’t allowed to use any, why was a handler even bringing any out to this shoot? Am I taking crazy pills?
So, since exotic animals of one sort were out, she decided to employ another: the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. That’s right, Kim and Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Yolanda Foster and Carlton Gebbia all get to be in this video. God help us all.

Lady GaGa is getting ready to go out in support of her ARTPOP album and is bringing her ‘artRave: The ARTPOP Ball Tour’ to the UK this fall. Tickets went on sale the other day, and while you’d think the basic flop of the album itself would mean no one would be in too much of a hurry to get tickets, that’s not the case at all – the entire UK tour sold out in under five minutes!
There was tremendous demand for @ladygaga and all tickets have now gone. We apologise to fans who were unable to get tickets.

I can’t imagine what this tour is going to be like, but if the iTunes Festival performance last September is anything to go by, the audience is in for a hot ass mess.
Would you pay to go see GaGa or have you seen any of her other tours?

Lady GaGa is a bit of an enigma – or at least that’s what she’d hope you think of her – and seems to be all over the place most of the time. She’s battled lots of demons in her life, including eating disorders and severe depression, so it should be no surprise that they occasionally make reappearances and tend to take over her psyche. One of those times was apparently the end of this past year, when she got so depressed that she didn’t think she’d live.
From Harper’s Bazaar:
I became very depressed at the end of 2013. I was exhausted fighting people off. I couldn’t even feel my own heartbeat. I was angry, cynical, and had this deep sadness like an anchor dragging everywhere I go. I just didn’t feel like fighting anymore. I didn’t feel like standing up for myself one more time—to one more person who lied to me.
But January 1, I woke up, started crying again, and I looked in the mirror and said, “I know you don’t want to fight. I know you think you can’t, but you’ve done this before. I know it hurts, but you won’t survive this depression.” I really felt like I was dying—my light completely out. I said to myself, “Whatever is left in there, even just one light molecule, you will find it and make it multiply. You have to for you. You have to for your music. You have to for your fans and your family.” Depression doesn’t take away your talents—it just makes them harder to find. But I always find it. I learned that my sadness never destroyed what was great about me. You just have to go back to that greatness, find that one little light that’s left. I’m lucky I found one little glimmer stored away.
It’s very difficult for me to take Lady GaGa seriously with this shit because she’s literally had the most privileged life ever. She grew up in an upper class family in NYC and was famous by the time she was in hear early 20s (with production and songwriting deals prior to that, if I remember correctly). I’m not saying she hasn’t worked hard for what she has, but I am saying that part of me feels like she relies on this tortured soul routine for her “art”. On the other hand, it’s colossally unfair to assume that because someone has had money, that they can’t suffer from depression – which is largely chemical in addition to circumstantial, so I dunno. Clearly she felt depressed and now she’s better, so uh… that’s good, right?
GaGa also spoke about how she wants to stand up for herself more against those who are out to fuck her over, saying:
Sometimes I get this gut feeling about people—maybe I sense a hidden agenda or that they care for the money more than the message. I wish that I’d listen to that feeling instead of waiting for the truth to rear its ugly head. I’m a smart girl. I’m loyal. But sometimes I’m too loyal. I’m not loyal enough to myself.
Well, there ya go. You should never feel bad about cutting anyone out of your life who isn’t worth being there, girl. I’m with you on that. I just sorta wish you’d stop doing naked photoshoots with your legs wide open and some stupid object covering your modesty. It’s getting a little old.
