Lady Gaga apparently gained 30 pounds several months ago. I still think that infamous meat leotard photo is photoshopped, because if you compare it to every single other photo of her taken around that time she doesn’t look nearly as big, I mean all you really need to do is use your eyes and then apply logic to what you’re looking at. Okay, anyway, whatever weight she’s gained she’s since lost it and looks great. But leave it to the Internet to say she still looks fat, or that if she doesn’t look fat, “she’s still ugly.” I am getting so sick of this shit. Come on, Internet.
TMZ, Us Weekly, and AztecaTrends posted these Gaga bikini pics and even though I’m not a huge fan of everything she does or says, I think she’s a talented and pretty girl who has a great bod and doesn’t deserve all of this bizarre hatred. Maybe I’m taking this too personally because this is pretty much what I look like in a bikini so now I kind of want to never leave the house again.
2013 is turning out worse than 2012 for Lady Gaga. At least the singer had something going on last year – a flopped tour that got cancelled due topoor ticket sales a hip injury.
But this year, the girl has tried her best to be on the headlines, but she failed miserably in all her attempts.
Case in point: remember when Lady Gaga debuted as a “musical director” (LOL) for Thierry Mugler in 2011? The media coverage for that was huge because, at that time, people still cared about her and were interested in the new songs off of the then-unreleased Born This Way album (she playedGovernment Hooker and Scheisse in that event).
A few weeks ago, however, Lady Gaga tried to pull it off again, as a musical director for Versace Versus Fashion Show 2013. Just like in 2011, Lady Gaga included snippets of songs off of her new album (which has been delayed several times). The media coverage this time? Next to none! No one cared. Lady Gaga is old news.
Not to mention that Gaga’s name is only mentioned in the press because of other people: feud with Kelly Osbourne, a special appearance at a Beyonce concert in Brooklyn, being unfollowed by Cher on Twitter…
That last one is OUCH.
Gaga can be annoying, but I don’t think she’s terrible and I would prefer if this wasn’t the end of her career. And she is TOTALLY IN THE NEWS aside from the aforementioned headlines. For example, someone is auctioning off one of her fingernails. According to the Boston Herald, “the current bid price on the black acrylic finger nail featuring a gold bead pattern is 1,000 pounds or more than $1,500.” HUGE CAREER BOOST RIGHT THERE.
Kelly Osbourne never really bothered me but her interview with Cosmopolitan changed my mind about that. Now I think she’s almost insufferable. Really, insufferable is too strong of a word. But look at this from their latest issue,
[On what she wants moving forward in her life] Happiness and a Golden Globe. What? I’m fabulous. I need a Golden Globe. What is life if you’re not going to live it to the fullest? People think this is my 15 minutes. F-ck you. I’ve got an hour.
What the hell? Maybe this sounded funnier and less annoying in person. What the hell would you get a Golden Globe for?
Then she called out Lady Gaga for some stuff (again).
I loved Lady Gaga. I totally believed in everything she stood for, until I realized she’s a great big hypocrite. Don’t say, ‘When you see bullying, intervene,’ while letting your fans send me death threats. If my fans did that, I would not stand for it. You can say whatever you want with your millions of monsters. I know the truth. You bells and whistles mean nothing to me. You’re feeding on the freaks and geeks to further your career? Do you really care about the gay community? Because if you did, you’d stand up for it more than you do
LOL at “if my fans did that, I would not stand for it.” Good for you, Queen Elizabeth. Mustn’t let the serfs get out of bounds. Other than that, I don’t really disagree with anything she’s saying about Gaga here.
Oh, bonus. When asked, “do you want kids?” She replied,
I do want babies, but I don’t want a great big vagina.
And then apparently she went to the Chateau Marmont to eat and her friend told her she looked like Amy Winehouse came back from the dead. You know, normal people stuff. From The National Enquirer:
It ain’t easy to shake up tough-as-nails LADY GAGA, but she flat-out freaked while dining at see-and-be-seen Chateau Marmont – rocking a long black wig, heavy makeup and mounds of dark mascara – when a pal passing by her table did a wide-eyed double-take and told her: “Wow, you really startled me – I thought AMY WINEHOUSEhad come back from the dead!”
Stunned, Gaga ga-ga-gasped, literally dropped her fork on her plate – and dashed off to her room.
Half an hour later, La Gaga re-emerged sporting a red wig and subdued warpaint, and not looking at all like the tragic, drug-plagued British star she’d idolized before her tragic death at age 27.
What the hell is this, a Noel Coward play?
If you’d like to further mourn our dearly departed Miss Winehouse, you’ll soon be able to pay tribute at her memorial statue.
Please enjoy these photos of Lady Gaga leaving/arriving at the Chateau Marmont over the years.
Elton and David spilled the beans on baby Elijah’s godmother. It turns out Lady Gaga will be looking out for both little ones.
“She’s a great role model,” Elton said. “She’s been a great godmother to Zachary. She came to bathe him in Las Vegas. She was already dressed to go to the show, and she was sitting there and she bathed him, and she was like dressed like Audrey Hepburn… and she fed him… We’re all bonkers in this business, but we’re human beings at the same time.”
I’m torn on GaGa as a role model. The whole rampant drug and alcohol use isn’t so great and she does dress a bit inappropriately for children, but I guess her politics are pretty good and she’s pretty generous with her money and gold wheelchairs and the like, so hey, why not?
Here’s a video of Elton and David talking about GaGa:
TIME Magazine put out their “Most Influential Icon” (of the last decade) list out and take the #2 spot is Lady Gaga, with Barack Obama right behind her. The #1 Most Influential person is politician Aung San Suu Kyi.
It would help to know what their criteria is and what they consider “influential.” In terms of pop culture, music, and fashion, yeah Lady Gaga is definitely more influential than the President of the United States. They say it’s by who has “had the most impact on our world over the last decade.” Oh, okay, thanks for the specificities.
It’s worth mentioning that TIME didn’t exactly choose these on their own. They came up with a list of people they deemed influential and then asked the public to vote. So that explains a lot. She has a lot of fans who really love her, and she loves them right back.
And hey, it could be worse. At least they didn’t include Bieber this time.
Lady GaGa may be ten shades of f-cking ridiculous, but no one can say she’s not generous when it comes to giving to those in need. Take Little Monster Emma C, who suffers from scoliosis and hip dysplasia – she’s needed a hip replacement for years but has been unable to afford it. Somehow GaGa found out about it, contacted her and is personally paying for Emma’s treatment. Plus, she’s throwing in that gold wheelchair for good measure!
Emma wrote online:
“GaGa reached out to me and is hooking me up with her team that did her surgery in NYC as I have been needing a hip replacement for quite some time.
“We’re planning on flying out this weekend, all expenses paid, for a consult. The gesture is absolutely incredible… I broke down sobbing. Words can’t describe how incredibly Blessed I am.”
That’s definitely an incredibly kind gesture – and almost makes up for that Tony Bennett album she’s recording – but you know the other fans are going to be dead jealous of Emma and wonder why they didn’t get picked for special attention from Mother Monster because that’s the kind of shit people do. Regardless, this is a great story and moves GaGa a little further up on the bearable chart.
