For those wondering about the ‘counseling’ at the BTWBall BornBrave pre-show, it will be a fun tailgating experience for monsters to unite. At the BornBrave Bus you have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school & friends. There will also be food and games, DJ White Shadow and Lady Starlight will DJ with host BREEDLOVE to keep the experience fun. BornBrave Bus Is a place where mental health + depression are taken seriously w/ no judgement, FREE real help available to all. I feel like most kids don’t look for help because they feel embarrassed so mom + I wanted to break the stigmas around ‘help’ and make it fun.
—Lady Gaga, on offering “counseling” sessions pre-concert, and you know, I could make the obvious joke that anyone who goes to a Lady Gaga concert should probably undergo some counseling anyway, but hey, when have we actually gone for the obvious jab around here at Evil Beet?
Seriously, this is probably a pretty good idea. I think there’s a lot of people out there who are walking around that definitely need some therapy, and aren’t getting it either because it’s too expensive and they don’t have insurance, or because they’re afraid of the aforementioned stigma attached to seeking professional help for mental or emotional issues, and it’s something that needs addressing quick-like.
+1 on Lady Gaga today, huh?

Over the summer, I went to see Katy Perry‘s concert movie to make fun of it, but I ended up actually liking it. I ended up getting it as a Christmas gift, I liked it so much. Based on that, I plan on seeing Taylor Swift‘s very, very soon, and Justin Bieber‘s. And now, I guess, Lady Gaga‘s.
Except here’s the gross part: Terry Richardson is in charge of making the movie. EW. If I wanted to watch something that that sleazeball made … I would never want to watch something that sleazeball made. This movie, which Gaga said was going to be “documenting my life, the creation of ARTPOP + you!” ARTPOP is her upcoming album, which is neat, I guess, but when it comes to Terry Richardson documenting her life, I feel like we’re just going to get a bunch of artsy shots of Lady Gaga pooping and Lady Gaga walking awkwardly in her 14 inch heels and Lady Gaga being pretentious and empowering and dumb at exactly the same time. And that might be good for some of you, but I just don’t know how good it will be for me.
ARTPOP, the album, is set to be released in the spring, so I imagine the documentary won’t be too far behind. Keep an eye out, friends. Or don’t, if you don’t want to see Lady Gaga pooping. The choice is yours.

I mean, I’d know—I just spent six hours on a plane yesterday afternoon, and there were tons of people dressed like this on my flight. Gads. Honestly, I wore a pair of jeans, a black sweater, and moccasins, and I felt way underdressed.
Really, though, Lady Gaga wore this on a plane, and I don’t know where she was coming from, but the plane landed in Moscow, Russia, so I’m assuming that she was on the flight for at least more than an hour or two, because Russia’s f-cking huge, last I checked. Amazing, honestly.
Also, I don’t know if you heard or not, but Lady Gaga‘s going to be doing a super big concert with Bruce Springsteen and the Rolling Stones for the purpose of celebrating the Rolling Stones’ final concert in their final tour (I can’t believe they’re retiring after all these years, too).
From E! Online:
Lady Gaga and Bruce Springsteen are set to join the Rolling Stones onstage in what’s gearing up to be a rock-pop summit of impressive proportions.
The two will be performing with the legendary rockers Saturday in Newark, N.J., to celebrate the Stones’ final concert in their 50th-anniversary tour, per published reports.
The Black Keys are also set to take the stage at the concert, which wraps up a mini-world tour that included stops in Paris and London.
Now. You tell me—what’s more interesting: Lady Gaga’s continual shock-attire, or the fact that four old-ass men have been shaking it on stage for fifty f-cking years. Don’t answer wrong, or so help me.

Ahem. Caption for this photo: “Even the biggest of little monsters can’t deal with Lady Gaga stupid outfits.”
I know, kind of lame, but hey. I’m out of practice on the whole “Caption This” thing, guys, and I consider that to me more your arena than anything these days.
Seriously, though, this is what Lady Gaga wore on her recent safari while hanging out in Africa, because we all know that it’s important to look like the Jewel of the Nile whilst frolicking amongst beasts that could eat you in one single bite.
In related Lady Gaga news, did you hear what she had to say about Lindsay and Lindsay’s latest performance in ‘Liz & Dick’? Because it was just so super-nice and supportive. This is it, from Twitter:
You did a beautiful job on Liz & Dick, Let no one bring u down, Liz didn’t, they always try to knock the greats down a few pegs.
Which I think is just so lovely and so completely sincere, because Lindsay Lohan is clearly one of the greats, right? Isn’t that what we’ve all been saying this entire time?
Lindsay herself was so flattered by Lady Gaga’s flattery that she said this in return:
@ladygaga thank you so much! You are such an incredible force and that means the world to me love & hugs xo hope to see you soon bella.
And so goes the lovefest between Lady Gaga and Lindsay Lohan. Aren’t you so thankful for social media so that you could just watch all of this loveliness unfold?

Sorry, we don’t have pictures or anything. There’s not a porn of Lady Gaga tantalizingly gnawing on a drumstick or rubbing cranberry sauce all over her body. No photos of her doing disgustingly literal things with stuffing. Nope, it’s just a story that she told via Twitter, but it’s still sweet.
From Us Weekly:
Lady Gaga is no stranger to strange occurrences, but even she couldn’t anticipate what happened on Thursday, Nov. 22, when she woke up in the middle of the night to raid the fridge for Thanksgiving leftovers — and discovered 35 uninvited guests hiding out on the property where she and her family were staying in Peru.
The “Cake” singer, 26, revealed the incident on Twitter early Friday morning, explaining that security cameras had caught her new Peruvian friends in the garage. (Gaga was in Lima for a concert on Friday, Nov. 23, and spent Thanksgiving day with Peruvian girls who had been sexually abused and lived at a shelter in the poor neighborhood of Lurin.)
“#MONSTERFACT When Gaga is asleep, try to break into the garage, sing loud as possible + ring the doorbell repeatedly,” she wrote, along with the hashtags “#happeningnow” and “#badkids.” A few minutes later, she elaborated: “Thanksgiving story: woke up for leftovers in kitchen (naked) — stumbled on security camera revealing 35 monsters in my garage. #why #iloveu”
Seemingly unfazed, the star joked, “I tried to figure out how to slide stuffing under the door, but there’s no cat-flap.”
Gaga’s relationship with her fans — a.k.a. Little Monsters — has always been unique. Earlier in the day, she sent a message to her nearly 32 million followers on Twitter, thanking them for their unwavering support.
“Happy Thanksgiving Twitter!” she tweeted. “I’m thankful for all of you, the messages of positivity u send me everyday lift me & make me stronger.”
See, wasn’t that adorable?

And if you watched the video, Lady Gaga raps. Good Lord. Why didn’t anyone warn me about this? See, I watched the Terry Richardson-done video teaser thinking that it was just going to be your typical Gaga, bumping and grinding and singing about how she was born this way or whatever, with a side of lady-on-lady spanking going on, but I did not—I did not—expect to hear Lady Gaga rapping about thirty million fans and how she’s rich and how she’s got money. No, the braless flailing wasn’t even the most disturbing part of the clip. It was LG’s monotone rapping that really did me in, guys, and that being said? Oh my God I cannot WAIT to see the entire video for this ‘Cake’ song.
Here’s the full song if you haven’t already heard it:
