Anderson Cooper kicked off his CNN broadcast Monday night reading the full list of victims from Orlando just one block away from Pulse, the gay nightclub where the deadliest mass shooting in American history occurred. Before he recited all the names, the openly-gay 49-year-old journalist noted the gunman’s name or photograph would not be featured in the telecast.

“There’s one name you will not hear in the broadcast, one picture of a person you won’t see. We will not say the gunman’s name or show his photograph. It has been shown far too much already. Over the next two hours, we will tell you about the investigation, all the latest, what we know about what drove the shooter to do the unthinkable. But in text two hours, we want to keep the focus where it belongs, on people whose lives were cut short.”

As he read the names, photos of the victims appeared on the screen. Naturally, at certain moments the emotion overcame Cooper, pausing frequently and at some times choking up.

Meanwhile in downtown Los Angeles, Lady Gaga showed her support for the victims by attending a vigil. She made a touching speech and read the names of the victims as well. Like Cooper, she too, had to hold back the tears. Watch both clips below.

The ongoing Kesha-Dr Luke saga continues. Is anyone else hoping this drama comes to a close in the near future?

Just a couple of days ago, Billboard issued a statement revealing Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe Records rescinded its permission for Kesha to perform at this weekend’s Billboard Music Awards for fear the “Tik Tok” singer would use the platform to disparage his name.

Kesha responded by saying her performance had nothing to do with Dr. Luke, but rather a tribute to Bob Dylan. She explained, “I was never going to use a picture of him, speak of him or allude to my legal situation in any way. I simply wanted to sing a song I love to honor an artist I have always looked up to.”

Even Lady Gaga weighed in. She compared Dr. Luke to a Disney villain. “Isn’t it strange that it’s legal to own a woman this way? Listen Ursula, we want her voice back. #freeKesha,” she tweeted.

Fast forward to today and the 42-year-old producer has changed his mind, once again. Read his latest statement below.

dionne-warwick-biopic

At a press conference during the Cannes Film Festival, Dionne Warwick announced an upcoming biopic based on My Life, As I See It: An Autobiography, Dionne. The book chronicled her life from the years 1962 to 1968. The 75-year-old legend also revealed the cast.

Former Destiny’s Child singer, LeToya Luckett would play Dionne, while Danny Glover and Olympia Dukakis were cast as Warwick’s father and Warwick’s mentor Marlene Dietrich respectively. However, the most interesting addition was Lady Gaga. Mother Monster was reportedly selected to play Cilla Black, Warwick’s “musical nemesis.” It appears Gaga’s involvment was false.

Is Golden Globe number two on the way? Probably not, but I’m confident the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will most likely nominate her again. They’re notoriously known to be huge star f*ckers.

During an interview with Z100, Lady Gaga confirmed she’s booked a return gig to American Horror Story. Mother Monster replied “yes” when asked if she’ll appear on the FX series again. She added, “I can’t promise you how or when or anything like that.” Does that mean she might not return for Season 6, but show up for Season 7. So very cryptic.

Not much is known about Season 6. Ryan Murphy has kept relatively mum on the topic. FX boss John Landgraf previously revealed it will be “set in the present” with “echoes of the past” mixed in.” “It’s set in two time periods,” he added, “but principally in the present.”

Listen to Gaga’s interview below, where she also talks about “Til It Happens To You” and her Oscar performance.

Lady Gaga Stomps For Marc Jacobs During NYFW

In: Donovan, Fashion

Lady Gaga ruled the 58th Grammys partly due to Marc Jacobs. The 52-year-old designer was responsible not only for her killer red carpet look but also all those costumes Mother Monster rocked during her David Bowie tribute. As a thank you, Gaga supported her friend during New York Fashion Week.

Dressed in an over-sized coat from his 2016 Fall Collection and neo-goth makeup, Gaga stomped the runway in extremely high platforms. Watch Gaga channel her inner model below. She didn’t miss a beat.

2016-grammy-performances

As with every year, the Grammys can be a long-drawn out affair. Luckily, there are usually a handful of performances that make the marathon telecast bearable. The 58th annual Grammys were no different.

Arguably, the highlight and the one most people were looking forward to was Lady Gaga’s tribute to David Bowie. Mother Monster certainly didn’t disappoint. From head to toe and from the red carpet to the stage, she embodied the late great singer. She performed several of Bowie’s hits including “Fame,” “Rebel Rebel,” “Under Pressure” and “Suffragette City” to name a few. Though she did them all fantastically, Adam Lambert’s cover of “Let’s Dance,” IMHO, is better. Sorry Monsters :(

Adele was surprisingly a bit off her game with her performance. In her defense, it was primarily due to technical glitches that made her sound pitchy and out of tune at times. “The piano mics fell on to the piano strings, that’s what the guitar sound was. It made it sound out of tune. Shit happens. X,:” she tweeted after her performance.

If I had to pick the worst, I hate to say it was Pitbull’s show-closing performance. It pains me to say that because he’s my guilty pleasure, but Sofia Vergara’s special appearance had me cringing. I honestly couldn’t watch and was kinda embarrassed for her.

Watch all the performances below and find out my five favorites. Be sure to weigh in on who you think stole the show and who stank.

It’s Lady Gaga’s world and we’re merely just living in it. From picking up her first acting Golden Globe statue to earning an Oscar nod, the 29-year-old is on fire these days. Everything she takes on lately, she’s absolutely slaying. Her Super Bowl performance was no different.

Wearing a sparkly red pant suit, matching glitter red eye shadow and patriotic footwear, Mother Monster belted out the “Star Spangled Banner” to kick off Super Bowl 50. By most accounts aka tweets, people seem to have loved her performance.

While it wasn’t on Whitney Houston epic levels, Miss Germanotta did her country proud. During some moments though, it was a little theatrical for me but overall, I liked it. Watch it (again) below and weigh in afterward.

February is going to be a busy month for Lady Gaga. In addition to her David Bowie tribute at the Grammys and performing at the 88th Academy Awards, the 29-year-old singer will also perform at Super Bowl 50. She’s been tapped to perform the National Anthem.

Mother Monster follows in the footsteps of Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks to name a few. Idina Menzel sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” at last year’s game.

Gaga is the latest big name scheduled to perform this Sunday. Beyonce and Bruno Mars will join Coldplay during the Half-Time Show. Sunday night is going to be epic.

Do you think Gaga is a good choice to sing the National Anthem? I think so. Given that she slayed her Sound of Music tribute at the Oscars last year, she should have no problem this Sunday. Weigh in below.
