Lady GaGa has been pretty much out of the spotlight for the past few months as she underwent hip surgery, rode around in a gold wheelchair, maybe got plastic surgery (totally did) and fought frivolous lawsuits. But now she’s back and she actually has music to release! A new single! A new album! An app! Ahhhhhhh! (That can be a scream of joy, terror or disgust, depending on your personal tastes.)
I mean, I’m not really all that excited about this. I liked the Fame Monster EP (and her actual first album), but the second one started to lose me a bit. I also think, you know, Madonna did it better. But that’s cool – different strokes for different folks.
What do you think? Excited about this or not so much?
Lady Gaga is seeking to block court documents in a case between her former boyfriend/producer Rob Fusari, and former collaborator/BFF, Wendy Starland. Starland sued Fusari on the grounds of, “I should have gotten more money for discovering Gaga, dickface” (not an actual quote).
Guess there’s info in those papers Gaga thinks is personal, but apparently it’s also potentially career damaging. Yeah. She filed papers to keep the documents from coming out. Here’s some of what she said, from TMZ:
Gaga says the info is “sensitive, private, and personal.” Gaga claims that if the info went public, it would “inflict significant personal and professional harm upon” her.
Wow. What could she be hiding? What doesn’t she want us to find out? Given how open, tolerant, and loving Gaga is of all sexual orientations and genders, my guess is that perhaps there’s something about her using gay slurs? Maybe she went a little Deen-y?
What could be in there?
Lady Gaga hasn’t been doing a whole lot lately, leaving people to wonder if she’s “over.” She’s been recovering from some pretty intense surgery, leaving her in fancy-ass wheelchairs, so that could be a big part of it. And despite that, she’s STILL wearing heels, as she did when she showed up for the NYC Gay Pride Rally.
Here’s some info from MTV about what she did:
Gagaloo didn’t just show up, though. She spoke out in celebration of the Supreme Court’s decision to rule the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional AND to perform an inspired a cappella rendition of the National Anthem, swapping in lyrics like “Oh say does that star-spangled flag of pride yet wave,” and “O’er the land of the free and a home for the gay.”
I thought she looked kind of “different.” Perhaps it’s the hair and the lack of heavy makeup. I thought she looked especially non Gaga-like in these photos MTV posted:
That stupid black bar sunglasses (?) thing may have added to that. Maybe you’re all gonna think I’m crazy, but I think she kind of looks like Scarlett Johansson in the top photo. Their noses are very different but I see a similarity there.
Lady Gaga is in the news lately for what she’s been wearing, but unlike her usual “I am basically wearing a palm tree” or “I am wearing a giant Pikachu costume as designed by Versace” she’s been photographed in normal attire, like a regular bikini and now, a non-flashy, normal, pink bridesmaid gown. Well, almost non-flashy. The J.Lo deep v-cut is a little attention grabbing. But I’ve seen wedding photos of bridesmaids in more revealing attire.
Ms. Gaga’s longtime friend got married in Mexico over the weekend. Hope her friend didn’t mind the paparazzi helicopter photos, but she had to know what she was getting into.
Gaga looked pretty and lovely in something sweet and girly, and were it not for the giant bright blonde Amy Winehouse-esque beehive, she would have achieved full normal. I think it’s far more interesting to see Gaga in subdued outfits and makeup now that we’ve seen her for years in over-the-top fashion.
And it’s interesting to see her amidst normal people, and not at the center of attention. For once, Lady Gaga was at an event and she wasn’t the star. I bet Gaga was so happy to give that to her friend (not being sarcastic). I wonder if her friend was worried that her wedding would be all about Gaga, but I think they’ve got a good, trustworthy group going on, and everyone gave the bride the proper attention and support. Damn, I’m getting all emotional now. F-cking weddings.
Check out the rest.
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.
Not everyone is built like Olivia Wilde or Rachel Bilson, you know?
Lady Gaga was everywhere for a while, then not as much, then she injured herself and had to cancel her tour, then she rode around in a series of annoyingly extravagant wheelchairs, and now apparently her career is dead. Oh No They Didn’t posted an interesting article from Paws Down Little Monsters:
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.
What do you think? Is Lady Gaga over?
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.
Thanks for that image.
