Just when you think Lady Gaga may have exhausted every last idea in her brain for weird shit to do, she comes on stage with something new and “shocking” to make you wonder, “Is Lady Gaga fucking SERIOUS with this bullshit?” Not quite the question she hoped to raise, which probably had something to do with whether she’s the greatest artist since Andy Warhol or whatever.
In any case, Gaga showed up to SXSW in Austin for a performance at Stubb’s, during which she hung herself from a human spit-roast that rotated while her cronies picked at her “skin” and she sang ‘Aura’. I mean, have you ever heard of more bullshit in one sentence?
Oh, and here’s one more tidbit of joy. She was apparently not feeling everyone taking photos and videos of the show last night, so she told everyone to put down their phones and have sex with each other instead. UHHHH…???
“Do me a favor and don’t take a picture,” Gaga said, according to NME. “Put your fucking phones down. Fuck your cell phones and your fuck your friends instead.”
Girl, no. She also LET SOMEONE THROW UP ON HER! The girl came up on stage and forced herself to throw up some green sludge. Fuck off, man.

I’ve been a massive Ellie Goulding fan since way back in 2010, before she even signed with Polydor – and definitely long before she sang at Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s wedding and started getting crazy famous. It’s kinda strange (but wonderful) to see how much she’s grown over those few years – to the point where she’s pretty much the central musical focus of the Divergent soundtrack!
Several tracks from Ellie are featured in the movie and on the soundtrack, but the original one writing specifically for it is called ‘Beating Heart’. It’s a pretty great song, and while the lyric video won’t give much away, if this is the ambiance of the movie, I’m totally into it.
What do you think of ‘Beating Heart’? Are you an Ellie fan? Will you see Divergent? SO MANY QUESTIONS!

I’ve pretty much been digging everything from Lily Allen‘s new album, Sheezus, that she’s released so far. Her latest offering comes in the form of ‘Our Time’, which is a pretty good song on its own but has a video that takes it to another level. So many Lilys, so little time!
Are you looking forward to her new album? Are you a Lily fan?

I love Jennifer Lopez and think she’s pretty flawless, generally speaking, even if she is a raging ghetto biatch. In fact, I think that’s one of the main reasons I love her. However, there are just some things I cannot abide, and her new single, ‘I Luh Ya Papi’ (yes, I’m typing that correctly), is one of them.
Sure, we’ve heard ‘Girls’ and ‘Same Girl’ (real creative titles there, JLo), but those were just promotional releases. THIS is the song she is allowing to represent her as the first single from her upcoming album, which will be released later this year.
In addition to the horrendous title, the lyrics don’t fare much better. JLo sings about how she loves her man so much, she’ll give it to him right there in the car. Now there’s romance! On the other hand, she does insist that her man engages her mind before her body – but once he gets to her body, he will need “4 or 5 beds” because what she’s got to offer is that good. I just… LOL. Okay.
That being said, it’s REALLY catchy from the second listen on. God help me.

I have a serious problem, you guys. I hate Robin Thicke. I hate this song. Jessie J is only marginally bearable anymore… and yet I woke up with ‘Calling All Hearts’ – which is apparently actually DJ Cassidy‘s song that the other two are featuring on – in my head. And I’ve only heard it ONCE. That’s all it took! I’m not sure what that means. Is it kind of a decent pop song after all, or am I being subject to some serious brainwashing? I vote the latter.
The most confusing thing about this video is how these three people came together for this song in particular. It’s pseud0-disco to listen to, but the video has B-Boys and Girls and way too much pink shit. The lyrics and the concept are terrible, DJ Cassidy is… whatever, Robin Thicke serves no purpose, Jessie J thinks she’s starring in her own Broadway musical and it’s all a disaster. So why is the chorus on repeat in my brain? HELP ME!

I’m not really sure to make of ‘Adrenalina’, the new single by Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin and Wisin. I’ll admit my ignorance in saying that I’ve never heard of Wisin, but given that this song is done entirely in Spanish, I’m assuming he’s a big hit in the Latino music world.
The song isn’t all that bad, really. There’s nothing special about it, and sort of makes me feel like I should be clubbing in Mexico City or something, even though I’ve never been clubbing (seriously – no interest) and I’ve also never been to Mexico City. Basically, I’m entirely out of my element here, though I do speak Spanish, so I guess that’s something.
I’m sure JLo’s fans will be happy to see her singing in Spanish again (and looking hot, to boot), and Ricky Martin fans (he has those, right?) will be happy to see him doing anything at all. I kid!
The biggest problem is the close dancing with Ricky and Jennifer. Just make that shit stop IMMEDIATELY.
