Lady Gaga is keeping the avant garde motif going in the wake of her Fame fragrance launch in New York City, where she slept in a life-sized perfume bottle, let people touch her hand and had the back of her head tattooed. Gaga hit up hatmaker Philip Treacy's show in London on Sunday (Sept. 16) and she did so in out-there style: With a crown of flowers on her head and framing her face. It looked like a floral beard.
Madonna really likes to beat a dead horse, doesn't she? The singer dissed her (much younger) rival Lady Gaga onstage again, this time in Atlantic City. Madge dedicated her performance of her Golden Globe-winning song 'Masterpiece' to Gaga, and she added a nasty insult to the "dedication." Doesn't she have anything better to do than take cheap pot shots at Gaga? This rivalry is so January 2012, isn't it?
Oh the Fame. It's a blessing and a curse, but when it comes to Lady Gaga and her debut fragrance 'Fame,' it's a blessing times a billion. Word is that the scent, which is black in bottle form but is clear when airborne, is on track to rake in a billion dollars in profits. Yes, a billion with a "b."
On tonight's (Sept. 12) Season 2 premiere of 'X Factor,' the producers and judges wasted no time in making things interesting. At the Oakland audition, Quatrele Da'an Smith, an African American drag queen, dressed in a bridal veil, panties, black heels and neon pink lipstick cribbed from Nicki Minaj's makeup bag, performed Lady Gaga's self-love anthem 'Born This Way.' No shock there.
So, Lady Gaga's in London, and she's been hitting the town in some very over-the-top garb during her stay -- but instead of the 10-inch, tip-toe high heels and leather bondage fashion, she's opted for some extremely ornate gowns and headgear. Now we want all of you little monsters to weigh in on her best London outfit as of yet!
Lady Gaga once again performed the new song 'Princess Die,' a melancholy piano ballad that she initially debuted while on tour with her Born This Way Ball earlier this year. It originally drew some controversy, given the title and association with the late, great, beloved Princes Diana of England. Gaga was in London, Diana's onetime base of operations, this weekend. She played Twickenham Stadium on Sept. 8, so she wisely elected to shared the meaning behind the song. She did so in a heartfelt way that should take erase some of the controversy that accompanied the song when it debuted.
Kelly Clarkson has been honoring fan requests and covering whatever songs they want to hear all summer long during her tour. On Sept. 7 in Houston, Clarkson indulged a fan's request for her to try her hand, er, voice at Lady Gaga's 'You & I.' It's a powerful song that requires a powerhouse voice and who better to rip right through the tune than the original 'American Idol?' Clarkson infused the Mother Monster's torchy love song with a bit of her signature smoky, country twang. How'd she do?
Furgate was so August 2012, but the controversy is not dying down and has reared its head yet again. PETA, who attacked Lady Gaga for wearing fur, to which she responded vaguely without ever confirming or denying if her coats were made of authentic or synthetic pelts, is at it again, this time calling the Mother Monster heartless, saying that she needs someone to "buy her a heart." They are pretty much comparing her to the Tin Man from 'The Wizard of Oz.'
