Lady Gaga stops a fight mid-concert

lady gaga

Lady Gaga is currently on tour and she recently took The Artrave / The Artpop Ball or whatever the fuck this tour is called over to Antwerp. Apparently people in the crowd had too much to drink or were a little too hype on Tuesday night, because a fight broke out, forcing Mother Monster to play peacemaker, as she does.

The best quote of this video? “Here, we practice love.” LOL… oh, do we? I’m not loving that Rainbow Brite bullshit you have going on (Prism tour redux, to be honest), but whatever. I guess it was nice of Gaga to step in and bring the chill factor back to her concert. Behave yourselves, Belgium!

Jennifer Lopez featuring Iggy Azalea – ‘Booty’ (Make it stop!)

jennifer lopez iggy azalea booty

Here it is, ladies and gents – the video you certainly weren’t waiting for and probably had no idea existed. It’s Jennifer Lopez‘s new video for her song ‘Booty’, featuring Iggy Azalea. Everything about this is horrendous: the fact that a 44-year-old mother of two small children still feels the need to compete with 2o-something pop stars by singing about her ass, the fact that she felt the need to use Iggy Azalea (which… don’t get me started there), the fact that the song would be shit no matter who sung it… you get my drift.

Also, before anyone gets all up in arms, I’m not saying 44-year-old women/mothers can’t be sexy, get their ass out, whatever they want. I’m saying this is clearly a DIRECT result of her need to compete with the younger girls (who are hot messes in their own right), which I think is sad. She’s earned her fame and her name and doesn’t need to resort to this shit. Because it is shit.

But here, please judge for yourself:

I love me some J.Lo, but she needs to get a grip with this shit. We get it: you’ve got a nice ass, it’s been a major part of your career, you enjoy it and men and women looking at it do, too. But… girl, no. Seriously, full props for having an INCREDIBLE body for any age, but sit down.

Also, please get Iggy’s NON-ass out of here stat. She looks SO awkward and out of her element… most likely because she is.

Some guy told Beyonce she can’t sing and her response was excellent

beyonce

I don’t know who in their right mind (which is, perhaps, the point) would go to a Beyonce concert just to hold up a sign that says she can’t sing, but I guess to each his own. That’s what some weirdo did nearly a year ago, and we’re only now seeing the video of how the incident unfolded now.

I won’t ruin it for you – just sit back and enjoy:

Well, that’s him told. Look, if you really don’t like someone/something, how about just, you know, getting a life and shutting up about it? NO ONE CARES. If you DO like something but you act like you don’t just to create drama/get attention, the advice is the same: get a life. No time for cornballs like this dude.

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett are soulmates, it seems

lady gaga tony bennett

Admittedly, I don’t really “get” the friendship between Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett. It just seems bizarre. Gaga is crazier than a craphouse rat and Bennett is a classic. Where those two meet in the middle, I’m not sure, but they’ve become absolute best of friends, hanging out together in NYC and recording a jazz album together that’ll be out later this month.

The pair covered the new Parade magazine and were interviewed inside, and while the actual interview is way too long to paste, here are some highlights.

ON HOW CELEBRITY CULTURE HAS CHANGED SINCE TONY BENNETT BECAME A STAR
LG: It’s changed a lot. Celebrity culture now is a culture of humiliation. For young people it’s cool to not care and to be rude and crass. That’s not the way to act…. We’re all being poisoned by what we watch, listen to, read. Everyone’s using the headline that’s going to get them the most clicks. They don’t care about doing the right thing. It’s all about scandal, and selling, and celebrity. When young people finally realize this is happening, there is going to be a revolution. I really hope that this album can be part of that. We say, “You can listen to timeless, beautiful music that’s honest and authentic.”

LADY GAGA ON WHETHER SHE WANTS TO START A FAMILY
LG: I thought I did, because I was feeling kind of finished with all of the chaos of my life. But then I started to spend a lot more time with Tony, and everything just became simpler, more pure, and more perfect. Now I think I’m going to take a lot more time before I have kids and settle down. I just want to sing.

ON WANTING TO GIVE UP
LG: I’m not going to say any names, but people get irrational when it comes to ­money—with how they treat you, with what they expect from you. … But if you help an artist, it doesn’t give you the right, once the artist is big, to take advantage of them. … I was so sad. I couldn’t sleep. I felt dead. And then I spent a lot of time with Tony. He wanted nothing but my friendship and my voice. [She begins to cry.] TB: [quietly] I understand. [He holds her hand.] LG: It meant a lot to me, Tony. I don’t have many people I can relate to.

Okay, so these two are clearly soulmates. It’s weird and I don’t get it, but they seem to really love and vibe off each other, so good for them. Maybe Lady Gaga can stay in the jazz world and out of my eardrums permanently. I think that would work!

Music Video: Usher – ‘She Came to Give It to You’ featuring Nicki Minaj

usher nicki minaj drake

Usher has always thought he was Michael Jackson reincarnate (even before MJ was dead), so it’s no surprise to me that he’s continuing to try to morph into the King of Pop. It’s not happening, of course, but that doesn’t seem to discourage him. His new single is called ‘She Came to Give It to You’, which is like ‘Blurred Lines’ redux. Because we needed another ‘Blurred Lines’, of course.

Nicki Minaj features in the song/video and Drake is even there, splurging on a bunch of bags of chips (well, he was there behind-the-scenes, anyway). Live large, man.

This song is awful.

Nicki Minaj releases a very NSFW video for ‘Anaconda’

drake nicki minaj anaconda

Nicki Minaj has been teasing the world with her video for new single ‘Anaconda’ for weeks now. It was supposed to be out a while ago, but got pushed back for ‘Bang Bang’ and her Beyonce remix. Now it’s here, however, and boy is it something else. Spoiler: There’s a whole lot of ass.

I keep seeing all these articles saying how badly they feel for Drake and that he must’ve had his junk taped to his leg after getting a lap dance from Nicki. His thirst for her always has been and always will be the realest thing about him and I sorta love it… even though he’s apparently back with Rihanna now (and I love that pairing even more).

Warning: Don’t watch this one at work or you might get fired. Unless, of course, you work for a porn company or something. Then by all means, press play.

Here’s the trailer for Jay-Z and Beyonce’s ‘On The Run’ HBO special

jay-z beyonce

Jay-Z and Beyonce are taking their On The Run tour to HBO because I guess they need even MORE money. The special won’t be airing until September, but people are losing their damn minds over this shit, so here’s your first trailer:

I dunno, I feel like I’m suffering Bey-Z exhaustion again, like I was before she dropped the self-titled. I need them to go away for a while, please.
