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.
