Lady Gaga Announces Album Release Date And A Bunch of Other Stuff

30 Apr

Lady Gaga announced on her Facebook page Friday a whole bunch of release dates tied to her upcoming CD, ARTPOP.

In a statement that reads more like the essays I used to peer edit in college, Gaga said the album will officially hit stores on Nov. 11, with pre-orders beginning Sept. 1. The release will also include some type of Jay-Z-esque App, described only as a “musical and visual engineering system that combines music, art, fashion and technology.”

First up, though, will be a single, released August 19.

Here’s more from the release:

ARTPOP musically mirrors Gaga’s creative process as she passes through the medium of each artist she collaborates with, scoring a blueprint on her journey. The result, a ‘rage’ of electronic passion and fury, defining each artistic process from beginning to end, ARTPOP could mean anything.

Great.

Lady Gaga ARTPOP Cover Art Continues Her Crazy “Living Art” Persona

12 Dec

Lady Gaga Cover Art

After much anticipation, the big reveal has finally been made. Gaga’s ‘ARTPOP’ cover was unveiled on Monday via her Twitter along with a quote from her song, Applause: ‘One second I’m a Koons, then suddenly the Koons is me!’ ‘Koons’ referring to Jeff Koons, designer of the cover.

As probably expected, the cover is eye catching, artistic and generally just kooky. Although not her greatest cover, Gaga is definitely trying to make a statement with this and the whole album in general. At the iTunes festival back in the beginning of September, Gaga boldly stated how she “wanted to set [her]self free of this box they put you in, in pop music.” If this cover isn’t stepping outside of the box, I don’t know what is.

On the cover is a sculpture of the pop sensation herself, along with distorted images of Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’ as a background, alluding to the idea that Gaga is in a state of ‘rebirth.’ With all this artwork on the cover, the sculpture and title of the album, it is fairly clear that Gaga holds this notion that she is a piece of artwork herself, not just her music. Art is about perpetual evolution and constant recreation, which is what Gaga seems to be engaging in as a pop artist at this stage in her career.

To be honest, this isn’t really something new and exciting for Gaga. All these ideas of rebirth and creation and art have always been a big part of her work. Just look at ‘Born this Way,’ for example. And as for this whole idea of living art… from the get-go, she has always been somewhat a walking piece of art what with her scandalous, and sometimes scary, outfits. But that’s what most of us love her for. The cover itself is definitely different and does step outside of the box, compared to her other album covers. But when has Gaga ever been inside the box?

Maybe if she toned down all the craziness and revealed a cover with her lying on the couch with a cup of tea in her pajamas then we’d really be impressed. But then it just wouldn’t be Gaga.

Here’s the cover art in full;

Listen: Lady Gaga Drops ‘Applause’ A Week Before Intended Release Date

20 Nov

Thanks ruining everything pushing “Applause” ahead of schedule, hackers.

Following the leak of a snippet of her ARTPOP single, Lady Gaga has decided to officially release the track one week ahead of its initial premiere date.

On Monday, the Mother Monster took to her Twitter to announce the news, writing:

DUE TO HACKERS AN ABUNDANCE OF LOW/HIGH QUALITY LEAKS…WE ISSUE THIS POP MUSIC EMERGENCY…MONSTERS SPREAD THE WORD

– Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) August 12, 2013

POP MUSIC EMERGENCY #0DAYSTillAPPLAUSE MY NEW SINGLE COMES OUT TODAY. 911 SPREAD THIS MESSAGE

– Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) August 12, 2013

Sure enough, the song hit the airwaves soon after the announcement. Gaga, 27, also released a new promotional photo – below – to “accompany this emergency.”

Given that another new Gaga track – currently debated as either titled “Burqa” or “Aura” – has also been leaked online, maybe we’ll be hearing the rest of ARTPOP a lot sooner than expected. For now, the record is slated to be released November 11.

Take a listen to its first single, below. Lyrics for “Applause” are now available on Directlyrics.

Lady Gaga Will Produce a New TLC Song

29 Sep

TLC will release new music produced by Lady Gaga in October.

You’ve seen today’s Lady Gaga news. And you’ve seen today’s TLC news. But did you know that today would also bring Lady Gaga/TLC news? When you opened your eyes this morning, reaching for that alarm clock and wondering how many cups of coffee it would take until you felt normal again, did you in your wildest dreams stop to think, I wonder if there will be some sort of Lady Gaga/TLC news today. You bet your ass you didn’t. But there is.

In a news conference today, T-Boz and Chilli announced they’ll be releasing a greatest hits album on Oct. 15. Not only will the album feature remastered versions of classics like “Waterfalls,” “Unpretty” and “No Scrubs,” it will also feature new music written by Lady Gaga and Ne-Yo. Both Drake and J-Cole will be featured in the new material.

Lady Gaga seems like an odd choice, no? I mean, she was 8 years old when “CrazySexyCool” came out. But, whatever, I’m not going to let anything get in the way of my excitement over new TLC material. And I’ll give Gaga the benefit of the doubt on this one.

As for those rumors that TLC would be going on tour with a hologram of Left Eye, the group’s third member who died in a car crash in 2002? Chilli says it’s probably not happening.

“I don’t even know how that got out. It’s definitely something we thought about, like years ago. But I think it’s very creepy. We’re still in the creative process in figuring out how we’re going to involve Lisa [Left Eye] and stuff like that.”

TLC will be performing for the first time in years this weekend at the Mixtape Festival in Hershey, Penn. There, Lil Mama (who plays Left Eye in the VH1 biopic) will be filling in.

LADY GAGA Opens MTV VMAs 2013 With “Applause” Performance (VIDEO)

5 Sep

LADY GAGA opened the MTV VMAs 2013 with a performance of her new song, “Applause.”

Miley Cyrus‘s much-talked about performance of her controversial song, “We Can’t Stop,” was not the only highlight of Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Lady Gaga had the honor of opening the awards show with a performance of her new single, “Applause,” hitting the stage (for the first time since her hip surgery) in a bizarre nun costume and later changing into different wigs and outfits-including a skimpy seashell bikini and thong.

Despite the shocking visuals, which seemed to be the trend in that night’s performances, it was evident that Mother Monster prepared well for her stage comeback. In fact, she was so prepared that even the booing from the crowd was cued just right before voices were heard saying things like:

Gaga is over.”
Watch her performance below:

Don’t mess with Lady Gaga.

In 2011, former assistant Jennifer O’Neill sued the superstar for more than 7,000 hours of unpaid overtime — an amount she believes totals some $393,000.

According to court documents obtained by Celebuzz, Gaga held nothing back during her six-hour deposition, which was given in August 2012.

“She’s just — she thinks she’s just like the queen of the universe . . . and, you know what, she didn’t want to be a slave to one, because in my work and what I do, I’m the queen of the universe every day,” Gaga said at one point.

O’Neill worked for Gaga from 2009 to 2011, and according to the “Born This Way” singer, was paid a salary of $75,000.

From multiple mentions of photographer Terry Richardson to her definition of “a good assistant,” the lengthy deposition is extremely detailed, but hardly any of the information may come as a shock, considering the lavish life Lady Gaga has been living since skyrocketing to superstardom.

For example, Gaga said at one point: “I can’t walk down the street and go buy myself toiletries, I’ve got to call Jen or now I got to call Wendi [her other assistant], I’ve got to get a whole bunch of people together to help me fix the problem, which wouldn’t happen if she was doing her job properly on regular days.
