I was 14 years old when I saw Titanic in the theater, and instead of sighing at how romantic it was, I instead tee-hee-heed all movie long.
There is only one scene in Titanic that I remember with any clarity whatsoever. And that is the part where Rose says to Jack, “I want you to draw me wearing this”—where “this” is a necklace—and then Rose’s voice drops to a sultry new register, and she intonates, “ONLY THIS.” And then Jack sketches Rose with a wildly professional ferocity, and then they do it in somebody’s car, and then Billy Zane shows up and he’s like, “Ooooh, I’m so mad!”
Every time I look at this nudie sketch of Lady Gaga—which was drawn by Tony Bennett—all I can picture is that one scene in Titanic. Evidently, Annie Leibovitz arranged their little fine art session; Bennett’s drawing will appear in an upcoming issue of Vanity Fair.
Bennett duetted with Lady Gaga on Duets II‘s “The Lady is a Tramp” (it’s good!), and he’s basically been gushing about Gaga ever since.
“She is the most beautiful person I ever met,” Bennett said of Gaga during her Thanksgiving TV special, adding that she is “America’s answer to Picasso.”

No, but seriously, I don’t hate the video. I like the message. It’s just that it’s from Gaga, and when she talks about removing hats being akin to losing vital organs, I have a really hard time taking her all that seriously.
Lastly, why is she leering at the camera?

Did you ever want to hear the likes of Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Madonna, and Christina Aguilera dish about each other? Did you ever wonder if Celine Dion has a kickass Cher impression up her sleeve? Did you ever wonder if Britney Spears has had a longtime habit of referring to herself as “retarded”?
Then this video is for you, friends. Happy Saturday!

Because if you do want to live in Lady Gaga‘s old apartment, now’s your chance! Gaga’s old stomping grounds, a one bedroom on the Lower East Side, is on the market, and for the low price of just $1,850 a month, you can’t afford not to move here!
I don’t know if you guys get this, but it’s actually a pretty complicated question, “would you want to live in the place where Lady Gaga used to live?” If the appeal is the apartment’s former tenant, then the answer is no. I don’t want that energy. I don’t want my home to be the place where Stefani Germanotta made her transformation into that crazy bitch we know today. I don’t want to be cooking dinner or trying to go to sleep and be thinking things like “oh God, did the travesty known as ‘Poker Face’ start here?” It’s too much for one person to take, and I couldn’t do it.
On the other hand, it’s a legitimately nice apartment, right? The bright colors, the cute little kitchen, it’s all looking good for me. I have no idea if $1,850 is a good price for an apartment in New York, but besides that, of course I could live there.
What do you guys think? Would you live here? Can you see Gaga creating her origins in this place? And, on a more personal note, do you have any tips on how to make a new apartment feel more homey on a budget?

Lady Gaga released a teaser for her ‘Marry the Night’ video, and I’m really, really curious about your reactions to it. Even if you’re not a Gaga fan and haven’t even heard of this song or about the general hubbub surrounding the upcoming video – there’s no denying that it is, thus far, pretty intriguing.

Are you as shocked as I am? I mean, this is Lady Gaga here, and she’s wearing a natural(ish) hair color, sensible(ish) heels, and a garment that isn’t made of flesh?! What does it mean? What does it all mean?
Any other guesses?
