A Few Things to Consider About Lady Gaga’s Jaw-Dropping “Paparazzi” Performance

Some context: Lady Gaga was famous well before her iconic performance of “Paparazzi” at the 2009 VMAs. “Just Dance,” “Poker Face,” and “LoveGame” smashed the charts earlier that year, and everyone was all, “That Gaga chick is so crazy!” But remember, this was pre-“Bad Romance,” pre-“Telephone.” It was before the meat dress, before the massively successful world tours. So when the curtain went up, people didn’t really know what to expect.

The unsuspecting – along with everyone else – were in for a treat. When Gaga took the stage for her first-ever VMAs performance, she let everyone know that she was The One To Beat. This performance helped catapult her to a level of superstardom not seen since Britney Spears rose to fame a decade earlier. Let’s be honest: do you really remember any performance from that night? (Not counting Kanye West‘s interruption of Taylor Swift, of course.)

But it wasn’t over yet. After a fierce dance routine, Gaga was all like “Oh, you think I’m a basic pop tart? Let me play you the song of my people” and gave us a few dramatic bars on the piano – one foot up on the keys like a modern day Tori Amos.

The rest, as they say, is herstory. Gaga’s outfit began bleeding, and as she stumbled across the stage, “dying” before our very eyes, it was clear that this would be a performance to remember. And we did.

Don’t forget to vote for your favorite iconic VMA performance above. Return each day this week to vote again – and for a new feature on the other performances.

New Court Claim: Lady Gaga Slept With Producer-Boyfriend Inside Recording Studio

20 Apr

Lady Gaga Has Sex In The Studio, Claims Wendy Starland

Wendy Starland, the woman who claims to have discovered Lady Gaga, is sharing new details about the “Bad Romance” singer’s sexual past — and it isn’t pretty.

In an ongoing lawsuit, filed in 2010 against Gaga and her then-boyfriend, producer Rob Fusari, Starland reveals that Gaga — whose real name is Stefani Germanotta — openly admitted to sleeping with Fusari inside her recording studio.

“Stefani just said, you know, we’re having sex at the studio so I don’t know if you want to be there for that,” Starland said during an Oct. 28, 2011 deposition, filed just last month.

“She never told me not to come,” Starland added. “She just told me what was happening, and I came to my own conclusions that I would prefer not to watch.”

“Stefani was more explicit about the nature of their relationship at the studio regarding their romantic relationship … and that they, in substance, wanted their privacy and that it wouldn’t be appropriate or a good thing for me to be there,” she said of Gaga, who has never been one to shy away from her sexual proclivities.

“It was, I guess, a bit more graphic when I heard the stories from Germanotta regarding the reason why I would be considered an intrusion.”

In the original lawsuit, Starland claims she was tasked by Fusari to find a “unique female singer, under the age of 25, who could be the female equivalent of the lead singer of the band the Strokes.”

If she did, she was promised that she and Fusari “would work together to develop the singer and share equally in any revenues earned as a result.”

Starland says she found Gaga — who is now dating actor Taylor Kinney — in March 2006 during a performance at The Cutting Room in New York City.

Ironically, Gaga and Fusari filed lawsuits against each other in 2010. Fusari eventually settled his $30 million claim in September of that year.

The news of Starland’s latest claims arrives just days after Gaga’s expansive tour rider was exclusively revealed by Celebuzz.

The information was obtained through court documents during a six-hour deposition Gaga gave in a lawsuit involving her former assistant Jennifer O’Neill, who is suing Gaga for nearly $400,000 in unpaid wages.

What do you think about Gaga’s rendezvous in the recording studio? Are you surprised? Tell us 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.

LADY GAGA: LINDSAY LOHAN Did A “Beautiful Job” In “Liz & Dick”

28 Nov

LADY GAGA recently praised LINDSAY LOHAN and said that she did a “beautiful job” as ELIZABETH TAYLOR in the new TV biopic, “Liz & Dick.”

Aww!

ALO 098174

Lindsay Lohan got a few spectacularly bad reviews about her portrayal of the screen legend Elizabeth Taylor in the newly-premiered Lifetime biopic, “Liz & Dick,” despite the 26-year-old actress’ claims that she was made ready for it.

But now, one of the actress’ BFFs, Lady Gaga, is slamming her critics by revealing what she thought of her performance.

The famed pop star wrote on her Twitter on Monday:

“@lindsaylohan you did a beautiful job on ‘Liz & Dick.'”

Gaga, who has her own fare share of ruthless critics, continued:

“Let no one bring u down, Liz didnt, they always try to knock the greats down a few pegs.”

Lindsay soon responded:

“@ladygaga thank you so much! You are such an incredible force and that means the world to me 🙂 love & hugs xo hope to see you soon bella.”

What do you think of Gaga‘s hopefully unbiased comment?

LADY GAGA Gets Tattoo On Her Nape In Tribute To Brazil (PHOTO)

14 Nov

LADY GAGA got a new tattoo on her nape as tribute to Brazil-or more specifically, to one of its most famous cities, Rio de Janeio, where she recently performed as part of the Born This Way Ball.

Gaga recently enjoyed some bikini time while in Puerto Rico, but apparently, the “Bad Romance” singer enjoyed Rio de Janeiro more-so much, in fact, that she decided to commemorate her time there by getting a tattoo that says RIO (stylized as R O) on her neck.

The pop star, who already sports several tattoos on her body, debuted the new ink on her Little Monsters website, which she posted a link to on her Twitter. Gaga wrote:

“R O. Monsters, all over the world you continue to inspire me everyday, your (sic) like an endless ocean of possibilities.”

On Nov. 9, the day of her concert in Rio de Janeiro, Mother Monster took to Twitter to express her feelings over the obviously successful show. She said:

“Tonight, the love we made set Rio in Flames. I’ll never forget that show Brazil. You ARE the City of God.”

LADY GAGA On Weight Gain Criticism: “ADELE Is Bigger” Than Me But “Nobody Says Anything About It”

5 Nov

LADY GAGA is again speaking out against all the criticism about her recent weight gain, complaining about the fact that “ADELE is bigger” than her, but “nobody says anything about it.”

JTM 062689

Female celebrities are often heavily criticized whenever they pack on the pounds. But British singer Adele, who recently gave birth to her first baby with boyfriend Simon Konecki, is one of the few who are unconditionally revered by fans, regardless of their weight-something that Lady Gaga, who recently became the subject of criticism for gaining 30 pounds, is very jealous about.

In a recent interview with Stylist UK, the “Born This Way singer said:

Adele is bigger than me, how come nobody says anything about it? She’s so wonderful and I think her confidence is something I have to match. She has set the bar very high for a lot of woman (sic). I need to be a confident woman and just say politically active things when I can that are helpful to young people.”

Speaking about the first time her extra body fat became headline news, Gaga said:

“I was acutely aware of some photos on the internet – my mum called me and was like, “Did you gain weight?” – everybody was telling me about it, and I didn’t really care. But when I heard it was on the news, where they talk about wars, the economy crashing and the election – I just thought, ‘This is f*cking ridiculous.’ “

The superstar continued:

“I mean, what kind of example is that to a young girl sitting at home? I thought, well I don’t really care if they think I’m fat, because, quite honestly, I did gain about 30 pounds.”

She then mused:

“I think women are just, for no reason, wretched to each other all the time, and I don’t think they use clothes or men or perfume or make-up or anything more than they use anything else. We should all make an effort to be nice to one another all the time.”

Well said, Gaga.

LADY GAGA Gets Naked, Sits On The Toilet In New Photo Shoot (PHOTO)

25 Sep

LADY GAGA gets naked and sits on the toilet in her latest photo shoot with her close friend, photographer TERRY RICHARDSON.

Have you ever seen anyone look this good while sitting on a toilet?

Despite her recent weight gain, Mother Monster showed off her much curvier body by going completely nude in her latest photo shoot with controversial photographer Terry Richardson.

The duo has given us some seriously freaky shots, but this one is a whole new weird… but sexy, too.

Aside from the toilet pic, Gaga also poses in a see-through corset with the cups pushed down while she covers one exposed boob with her hand.

LADY GAGA Jokingly Accuses LINDSAY LOHAN Of Stealing: “Are Those My Earrings?”

31 Aug

LADY GAGA jokingly accused LINDSAY LOHAN of stealing-just a few days after the actress was named a suspect in an alleged burglary in a Hollywood Hills home-by asking her: “Are those my earrings?”

Err… Awkward.

JTM 047001

Just days after Lindsay was “framed” in an alleged jewelry heist at one of her good friends’ home in Hollywood Hills and after the swanky Chateau Marmont banned her from their premises for dodging hotel bills of almost $50,000, Lady Gaga took a shot at her sleepover buddy on Twitter… by suggesting that she also stole her earrings.

It was all in good fun, of course.

After Lindsay uploaded a photo of herself while at dinner and wearing a fancy pair of earrings, Mother Monster sent the actress a tweet (which she later deleted), saying:

“@lindsaylohan ummmm are those my earrings??? this is awkward…:) kiss kiss chateau bunny.”

Double burn!

Do you think Lindsay will laugh Lady Gaga‘s joke off or will she take it seriously?
