Another day, another “That beyotch Lady Gaga stole my song” claim. Ever since the Fame Monster released “Born This Way“, claims of Gaga ripping people off have surfaced. In the short time the song is been out, she’s been accused of biting Carl Bean’s “I Was Born This Way” and Madonna’s “Express Yourself“, which BTW I still don’t see. Having said that, the latest claim coming from Asia seems to be the most credible of them all.
Music producer E-Tribe who worked on SNSD’s “Be Happy” , has come forward to comment on the similarities between Gaga’s hit and the K-Pop group. Here’s what E-Tribe said in a statement:
“Someone this morning told me that there were reports of Lady Gaga plagiarizing SNSD’s ‘Be Happy.’ I listened, and I do feel that there are similarities. The way the song flows and the arrangements are, honestly, the same. I am currently working to get in contact with Lady Gaga’s publishing label to find further information.”
SNSD aka Girl’s Generation is Korea’s current IT girl group of the moment. Forbes named them as Korea’s most powerful celebrity due to their influence extending to other Asian countries. They have multiple endorsement deals including Nintendo, Dior Cosmetics, and Domino’s to name a few. If these accusations turn out to be true, the publicity surrounding the scandal could elevate the K-Pop girl group onto a worldwide stage.
When Lady Gaga and her team decided to release an exclusive, deluxe edition of her highly anticipated album Born This Way through Target, many of her gay fans and followers were furious. Why do you ask?
Last year, it was uncovered that Target had donated corporate funds to MN Forward, a committee which supported anti-gay Minnesota candidate Tom Emmer. His run for office was a complete fail and nothing ever came from it. However, Target’s use of funds in this regard is completely opposite of everything Gaga and her little monsters stand for.
Gaga recently said to Billboard recently that the deal “hinged upon their [Target's] reform in the company to support the gay community and to redeem the mistakes they’ve made supporting those groups.” I am assuming that this means they never came to common ground.
Filmed on a busy Saturday in Manchester’s Gay Village on February 26th, spontaneous bar hoppers were asked to participate in this tribute to Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga. Lip syncing to her new single Born This Way, the video depicts gays and lesbians of all shapes, sizes, and colors truly capturing the essence of the song and ultimate, Manchester gay nightlife.
None of the participants were arranged before hand and all of the inside club footage was shot at AXM, Churchills, Belinda Scandals, Poptastic, Cruz 101, Via, and New York New York. This project was filmed by Jonathan Robinson and assisted by Mick Evans with editing by Beth Durkin and produced by Bellyflop.tv.
I really like the video. I have to admit when this song first came out I wasn’t a big fan of the song but luckily it has grown on me with her Grammy performance, music video and now, the first of what I’m sure will be many tribute videos, parodies and highlight montages. Homorazzi even has our own montage from our trip to WinterPRIDE using this song. (It totally makes the video).
Superstar blondies, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift songs had been mashed together by DJ Mashup and one superfan (TraceyRemix) took it upon herself to create this amazing video to complement “Alejandro’s Song“. There are mashup videos, and there there’s this video where they are actually blended together seamlessly to look like the two were in each others videos. It’s so well done!
Through the amazing editing, we see the two singing together on stage, chatting on the phone, snuggling on the couch, and much more throughout the video. Check it out!
Last night, Lady Gaga performed at a concert in Toronto, and had an extra special guest to perform “Born This Way” with. None other than Winnipeg’s 10 year old YouTube star, Maria Aragon. Ever since she sang a cover of Gaga’s new track online, she’s become everyone’s favorite little monster princess. Actually, at the concert, Gaga refers to her as Old Lady Maria of Winnipeg.
The two sing Born This Way at the piano together, and afterwards, Lady Maria addresses the fans. Gaga is so touched by the moment and what had just happened that she struggles to hold back her tears. It’s a really cute moment and really worth watching the video below.
“Myself +10 year Old Lady Maria of Winnipeg. She signed my t-shirt, she ate my heart, just like you.”
After the concert, Gaga got Maria to sign a shirt OF MARIA, and she tweeted the picture along with the above caption. Now, watch the performance and listen to Lady Maria talk to the fans! So cute!
Lady Gaga made her runway debut this week at Paris Fashion week, where she also debuted a preview of one of her new songs, “Government Hooker“. She walked the runway to designer Thierry Mugler‘s show which featured his work and Gaga’s stylist Nicola Formichetti.
In the video below, you see Lady Gaga walk the runway and let me tell you, she was effing fierce and totally owned it! She first shows up smoking a cigarette while leaning on a column. She’s dress in a black latex skirt, a see-through blouse with a black bra underneath, and a hat. She comes back later strutting her stuff down in an all white outfit, and that’s where you really see her runway skill. Tyra: “I only have one picture in my hand…LADY GAGA!”
The new song preview (remixed) is just as fierce and I’m sure it’ll be a hit. Gaga did say that her album has a wide variety of songs, and this is a perfect example, as it does seem quite different to Born This Way. Some of the lyrics go: “Put your hands on me, John F. Kennedy / I’ll make you squeal, baby.” And the hook to the song goes: “I’m gonna drink my tears tonight / I’m gonna drink my tears and cry / ‘Cause I know you love me, baby”). Check it out!
“This is the manifesto of mother monster,” says Lady Gaga at the beginning of her music video for “Born This Way“. In true Gaga fashion, she tells a story before her song actually begins. She tells the story of the birth of a new race within the race of humanity. A race without prejudice. Simultaneously another birth took place. The birth of evil. The music playing the background while she tells the story is epic. “How can I protect something so perfect without evil,” the mother monster asked herself. “It doesn’t matter if you love him, or capital Him…” And the song begins.
Gaga shows off the hot bod she was born with (minus the fake point parts protruding through her skin) in a skimpy bikini throughout a good majority of the video. I really enjoy the simplicity of that, interwoven with the story she was telling about the birth of the new race and the out of this world visuals used in those clips. I also loved with Willow Smith-inspired ponytail she whipped around during one clip with the guy we first saw in the Mugler fashion show where the remixed version of her song first debuted.
Watch the video below and let me know what you think and if you like it better that Britney’s Hold It Against Me music video. I have to ask, since they’re essentially going head to head this spring.
Lady Gaga is the latest person to lend their face to MAC Cosmetic’s Viva Glam campaign. Whatever the “Born This Way” singer gets involved with, you have to expect the unexpected. Case in point, her new commercial for the cosmetics company. Not only does Gaga get her glamor on, and the video clip elegantly shot, but in true Gaga fashion, it’s a little weird as well. It’s like Gaga called up David Lynch and the two took some serious acid.
There’s something eerily spooky about the two minute long clip. If you look closely, you’ll notice a couple of bedazzled skulls, a martini glass with what looks like a fish swimming in it… at least, I hope it’s a fish. But by and far the creepiest part of all, is the background music playing while Gaga hauntingly puts her lipstick on, with a stare that could scare the bejesus out of me. Check out the clip below for yourself and see what you think.
