Lady Gaga has decided to take a new approach to releasing the rest of the tracks on Born This Way… She’s debuting them on FarmVille. Yes, like that Facebook game FarmVille. Sounds pretty ridick, but considering that Lady Gaga has more Facebook fans than anyone and FarmVille has 63,000,000 monthly users, it makes ridiculous amounts of sense to marry the two.
On May 17th, Lady Gaga and Zynga will unveil GagaVille, a farm within FarmVille, which will showcase Lady Gaga’s themes from the album, such as crystals, unicorns and motorcycles. From May 17th to 19th, players can complete tasks to unlock and stream a new unreleased song per day.
Lady Gaga said: “I want to celebrate and share Born This Way with my little monsters in a special way that’s never been done before… Zynga has created a magical place in FarmVille where my fans can come play and be the first to listen to the album.”
Yeah, Gaga! You keep all of those outcasts you’re always singing about right behind the computer screen where they belong!
Are you going to play GagaVille or are you going to do something that doesn’t make you want to shoot yourself in the face?

You know, I know that we’re living in the day and age where MTV is more known for its stupid reality shows about grungy teenagers getting pregnant and dropping out of high schoolev, so I should probably be THANKFUL that there’s an artist out there like Lady Gaga who’s willing to actually make artistic music videos, but I’m too busy cleaning splashes of Rich Milk Chocolate out of the crevices of my keyboard to truly appreciate the creativity that went into this project.
I mean, if I were to be super offensive I’d say that this video might be either the gayest or the most retarded thing I’ve ever seen, but I’m not completely rude like that. Yet. So instead, I’m going to say that this video was definitely the cheesiest thing since Whiz.
But thanks for the laughs, Gaga. It’s always good to wake half up half the house in the wee hours of the morning with a maniacal laugh and a choking sputter.

Did you guys happen to catch the leak of Judas today? Lady Gaga‘s newest video, off of her album ‘Born This Way‘ was set to debut tonight, but some crazy schemester somehow managed to run it on the internet earlier this morning. Leaks, man. LEAKS. The video was pulled down, and it wasn’t up and running anywhere I looked, but hey. I’m not going to go kill myself over it or anything. MTV has a write-up about how rad the video is supposed to be, and how Gaga’s ‘little monsters’ are sure to cream themselves when they see it:
The video is crammed with religious imagery, even showing Lady G at one point wearing blood-red underwear with crosses over her breasts.
GaGa is first seen in the video on the back of a motorcycle, as she wraps her body around an actor wearing a crown of thorns, while GaGa dons a flowing purple dress, and a gold jewel-encrusted tiara.
So, if you saw it, what did you think? Is it the social commentary that Gaga’s claiming it is, or do you still think it’s all about bashing religion (if that is, indeed, your opinion)?
If you missed it, you can catch it tonight, premiering on E! at 7 PM and 11:30 PM.

I know you’re probably all aware that I’m so not a Gaga fan, and you’re wondering why I’m even posting stuff about her because of that, but the fact is, I love you guys, even despite your Gaga love. I mean, no one’s perfect, we should all be accepting of one another and all that jazz, and besides – even though she grates on me like a wire brush on raw nerves, she IS a talented singer.
The above clip was from a show in Guadalajara earlier in the week, where Lady Gaga debuted her latest single, ‘Americano.’ Do you guys love it? Were you there, by chance?

Whether you love Lady Gaga or you hate her, you’ve gotta admit: all of this falling business is a little excessive, right? Yes. And I’m going to pin it right on one thing – her shoes. I appreciate that she tries to hard to be different and unique and whatever, but if she keeps this business up, she’s going to bite it hard one of these days.
Bottom line, I think Lady Gaga’s put-on persona is ridiculous. Ridonkulous. Ri-COCK-ulous. Y’all might not agree with me, and some of you might actually cry over the audacity that I have in lamenting Gaga’s antics, but it’s no different than those people who can’t understand the hard-on I have for Scarlett Johansson and her talent.
I mean, I get it Lady Gaga. I hear what you’re saying. You’re different and unique and special.
Just like everybody else.

So even though you might have heard that Lady Gaga was blocking Al’s attempt to add this song to his upcoming album, it’s been confirmed that the single, ‘Perform This Way,’ actually WILL be included – apparently Gaga caved. Either that, or she thought ‘What the fuck, why not,’ because though Al said he’d respect her wishes and avoid adding the track, he released it online because, and I quote:
“However, given the circumstances, I have no problem with allowing people to hear it online, because I also have a personal policy not to completely waste my stinking time.”
Well said, dude. I mean, you maybe should have thought of all that before you went through the trouble of recording a song that you might not even be able to sell, but hey. I’m glad the circumstance changed for you, and I really have to give you props for using the word ‘stinking’ in the context that you did. I went through a big Weird Al phase back when ‘Amish Paradise’ was a big hit, and to this day I can’t hear the Red Hot Chili Peppers ‘My Friends’ without automatically thinking of your ‘Alternative Polka,’ so thanks!
