I feel like we’ve been talking about Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” for several years. Like it seems that Gaga’s been building up this hype for her new album since I was in middle school, and now, the moment is nigh. The album itself won’t be released until May, but late last night, the Lady decided to give all her Twitter followers a little gift: the album cover for Born This Way.
Can I be the first to say “what the fuck is this?” See, I thought that when Lady Gaga said that she was born this way, she was talking about something else entirely. I didn’t think “half woman, half motorcycle” was even an option. Well, whatever. Shows what I know, I guess. Lady Gaga is wacky for days, and shame on me for ever thinking different.
But really, this is just silly, right? Do any of you Lady Gaga fans actually dig this cover? Do any of you Lady Gaga fans actually read this blog?

And here’s Lady Gaga‘s latest leaked single, ‘Judas.’ Coming from someone who’s not a fan of the Lady’s music, I have to say that the song had a pretty good …. start. Seriously. All of that crazy bass in the beginning was actually the hotness, but after that? It kind of all fell apart for me. I didn’t care much for it after the first fifteen seconds, and my stance still remains: Lady Gaga, while she can sure as shit sing her heart out, and definitely tries to be unique, is no different than a modern-day Madonna. Especially with all of the religious innuendos. I’ll pass on this one, I think.
What do you guys have to say about it?

Here are the details from Gawker:
According to police, Angelina Barnes drowned the cat, sliced open its belly, mutilated its eyes and removed its liver, which cops later found “in a makeup case on the counter.” An unidentified relative arrived home to find Barnes—who had “cover[ed] light switches with duct tape so she wouldn’t be able to turn on the light”—dressed in a “long coat” with “streaks of what turned out to be cat blood on her face.” This was, it seems, the outfit she planned on wearing to the Lady Gaga concert.
As you might expect, Barnes did not go to the Lady Gaga concert. She went instead to the hospital, “where she threatened a male nurse with a piece of glass”; she’s now “receiving treatment” at a local hospital.
Around these parts, we don’t really care for Lady Gaga, but even those of you who broke down in tears the first time you heard “Born This Way” can probably see that this definitely earns a spot on a list of the creepiest things ever associated with Lady Gaga (right between gross meat dresses and blood and semen perfume, if you’re curious). People, listen, if you ever feel the need to mutilate a family pet so you can look super hot for your rock concert, please, take a moment of reflection. Then look at these pictures. That’s all I ask.

Here’s a pretty interesting little study done by a dating website. Have you ever wanted to know if you were going to get lucky on a first date but couldn’t muster up the courage to carelessly toss back your hair and say “Yo, are we bangin’ later or what?” We’ve all been there, but thanks to these nifty findings, all you have to do is pay attention to her music preferences!
Coldplay fans are the least likely music fans to have sex on a first date! A dating site compared users’ music tastes with responses to the question “how far would you go on a first date?” and found Coldplay fans to be prudes (preferences instead include cuddling, caterwauling, staring into someone’s green eyes, etc.). Other acts whose fans are not likely to have sex on the first date are Adele, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Kings of Leon. Perhaps Kings of Leon’s “Sex on Fire” is being taken as a descriptive warning? Anyway, acts whose fans will totally give it up on a first date include Nirvana, Metallica, Linkin Park, Kanye West, and Gorillaz.
I can totally see the easy people’s taste in music – have you ever met anyone who loved Kanye AND Metallica AND wasn’t DTF? That creature doesn’t exist in nature, friends. I found the prude music a little more surprising though. Not the Coldplay part, Coldplay fans are total prudes, but Katy Perry? I thought Katy Perry fans were super into skintight jeans and boobs and stuff. And Lady Gaga, that’s got to be wrong. I can’t even begin to count the number of Little Monsters I’ve seen gyrate around to “Bad Romance” and scream something like “I just want to get fucked!”
What do you guys think? Do these findings seem accurate? What artists’ music would you classify as prudish or easy?

Is there anything funnier than someone falling in public and trying to play it off like they meant to do it the entire time? Well, yes. When people fall in public and totally don’t expect it and are horrified and embarrassed that people saw them in such a non-graceful position – that’s much funnier. But this is still pretty good.
Lady Gaga, as you can see, decided to work her moves on top of a piano, slipped off, and slithered underneath. I’m really glad she’s OK and all, but damn. There’s a part of me that’s ALSO really glad for this clip, because it shows that I’m not the only one that falls flat on her ass during important events in her life.
Shake it off, girl.

The singer stepped out in Texas yesterday wearing the above outfit, and while it seems to be her tribute to the Southern state, it’s also bizarre to see her in a regular ol’ pair of blue jeans. Of course she went and complimented the pants with a pair of platform cowboy boots, because God forbid the woman give her disgusting, tired feet a break.
Do you like the way Gaga looks dressed down or do you prefer her in her full blown idiot costume?
