Lady Gaga may be laid up post hip surgery, but that won’t stop the 26-year-old star from joining a legendary jazz and showtunes singer to record a new album. In a recent interview, 86-year-old musician Tony Bennett admitted he’s been working on an upcoming album with the Mother Monster, one the two are supposed to record in June.
Inflammation of the joints may have forced Lady Gaga to have surgery and cancel a large portion of her larger than life Born This Way Ball, but that doesn’t mean she’s letting the setback knock her down from the count. With a flashy gold wheelchair and plenty of positive thoughts, she’s apparently on the mend and ready to get back to monstering.
Lady Gaga has been out and about over the last couple of days, but she’s not exactly looking fit as a fiddle. The 26-year-old singer recently was forced to cancel tour dates after determining she had synovitis and a hip tear. Taking her injury in stride, the singer opted to create a swanky gold and black wheelchair to move about with ease and finesse.
Well, Lady Gaga sure knows how to let bad news drag on over several days. The pop singer recently postponed a few tour dates, but apparently her problems are far larger than the 26-year-old initially believed. The injury the singer sustained and then performed on has forced the “Born This Way” singer to cancel the remainder of her tour dates.
Lady Gaga has changed her mind about some big touring dates. The pop singer has spent a considerable amount of time on the road for her Born This Way Ball Tour, but the 26–year-old singer recently did not dance around cancelling a few dates.
There are celebrities out there who will settle with disgruntled former employees in order to make their complaints go away. Let the record show Lady Gaga is not one of them. Court records from a lawsuit the pop star’s former assistant, Jennifer O’Neill, filed have been made public, and if the mother monster’s deposition is any indication, she will spend a decade in court before she pays the “unqualified” “fucking hood rat” a single dime she didn’t earn.
Justin Bieber has been the most popular man on Twitter for awhile now, but as of this week, he’s officially the most popular person too. The world famous pop star just passed Lady Gaga for the highest number of followers on the popular social media website, and if the current pace continues, he should have quite a bit of breathing room pretty soon too.
Over the past few months, Kelly Osbourne has received a slew of vicious Twitter comments and threats from angry Lady Gaga supporters pissed off about the Fashion Police star’s insults toward their beloved Mother Monster. Saying the pop star looked pregnant didn’t exactly sit well with them, but the giant torrent of hate that’s come since didn’t exactly sit well with Osbourne either.
Say what you will about Lady Gaga, but she certainly cares about her fans, even when it affects her wallet. The pop star announced over the weekend that she’s paying for mental health professionals to be onsite prior to her performances on the Born This Way Ball tour. Each date will include a tailgate-like party prior to the show complete with music and mental health professionals that will allow anyone and everyone to discuss any issues with depression they might be facing in either group or private sessions.
Jack White has never been a big fan of interviews, and now, we might have a pretty good indication of why. This morning, a quote from the singer was passed around the Internet in which he bashes Lady Gaga and calls the pop star “artifice”. His aggressive middle finger didn’t sit well with many of her fans, and it didn’t sit well with many journalists either. If White is to be believed, however, the whole thing was taken out of context.
Jack White might like a wide range of musicians and bands, but Lady Gaga definitely isn’t one of them. In fact, he thinks she’s a phony who makes sound bites that don’t have any real value. That’s the takeaway from a recent interview Jack White gave that’s just now making the rounds around the Internet.
The upside of having really obsessed, extremely passionate fans is that they attend multiple concerts, buy albums and stay loyal. The downside of having really obsessed, extremely passionate fans is that they do crazy shit like break into your garage while you’re trying to nakedly eat Thanksgiving leftovers inside your rental house.
Lady Gaga might not dress the way a professional would in most businesses, but the pop star still exudes professionalism. She proved that last night during a concert in Spain when she got sick and vomited three consecutive times without most people in the audience even catching wind of the disgusting turn of events.
Over the past week, photographs have emerged showing Lady Gaga sporting a slightly larger figure. Lesser pop stars may have apologized and gone on a crash diet immediately to help weather the insults, but this particular pop star has never been one for saying she’s sorry when she didn’t do anything wrong. Consequently, the mother monster announced earlier today that she’s using all the negative feedback to launch a new campaign asking fans to triumph over insecurities
Staten Island’s new Tackling Youth Substance Abuse program might be well-intentioned, but it got decidedly mean-spirited yesterday after Borough President James Molinaro took the stage at the kickoff event. The eighty-one-year-old was expected to outline the goals of the campaign and perhaps even talk about his own son’s saddening drug overdose in 2006. He accomplished those tasks but also took a left hand turn to shockingly accuse Lady Gaga of corrupting children and being a slut.
