Tony Bennett’s highly-anticipated follow up album to his platinum selling, “Duets: An American Classic” is only a few weeks away. Just like it’s predecessor, “Duets II” boasts a stellar list of singing companions for the legendary singer. “Duets II” is scheduled to hit stores on September 20, 2011 to celebrate Bennett’s recent 85th birthday. It’s great to see even at that age, Tony still has the drive and work ethic to put out quality work.

With the release date nearing, more snippets of the album are being released. The two latest previews we’re lucky enough to hear are duets by Mariah Carey on “When Do the Bells Ring for Me” and Lady Gaga on “That Lady Is A Tramp“. In a recent interview, Bennett praised all the high-profiled artists featured on the album. Specifically, he gushed about Gaga: “I never met a more talented person in my life. …I think she’s going to become as big as Elvis Presley.” Check out both Lady Gaga and Mariah Carey’s duets below. How hilarious is it, that Gaga was given “The Lady Is A Tramp”? LMFAO.

First, Lady Gaga posed as Jo Calderone, her male persona. Now she’s channeling her inner top model and taking on another persona. In a new video for her current single, “You and I”, Gaga shows off a new alter-ego named Nymph. The video titled, “Haus of U feat. Nymph” is the first of five “fashion films” coming from the Fame Monster. The visuals were shot by Dutch fashion photographers, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, better known as Inez and Vinoodh.

Personally, I’m loving the new video for “You and I“. There’s something oddly mesmerizing about watching a more serene, innocent and tranquil Gaga. She’s simply beautiful in every scene. She appears in slo-motion wearing flowing dresses with wind machines doing their thing. I can’t wait to see the other four “fashion films” from her collaboration with the Dutch photogs. Check out the new visual below.

2011 VMA’s: And The Winners Are…

In: Music, TV Shows, Tyrell

I have preface this article by saying that I was the most excited for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, better known as the VMA’s. Not only was I looking forward to the performances and the awards, but ultimately, I was looking forward to the epic Britney Spears tribute. Imagine my SHOCK when the tribute was only a 2 minute dance-a-thon with little female dancers dressed up in all of Britney’s costumes from her videos and performances. What happened to the original idea? UGH! I digress.

The entire show for me as a whole was a little flat. I think the one major element lacking this year was a host. MTV’s decision not to have one was complete fail. Without one, the show lacked cohesion and flow. Every presenter and and performance seemed random. However, nothing was more random than the interlude performances, courtesy of Jessie J.

My favorite performance of the evening hands down goes to Adele who showed everyone that you don’t need lights, dancers or lip syncing to have an entertaining performance. She shut the place down with her rendition of Someone Like You. Just her and a piano. Brilliant. Beyoncé also gave a stellar performance although I’m 100% positive she was lip syncing.

What was great about her performance was the the finale piece where she dropped her mic, unbuttoned her vest and revealed to the world that her and Jay-Z were pregnant. YES! So exciting. And, I cannot complete my quick little recap without giving kudos to Lady Gaga who stayed in character as her alter ego Jo Calderone all night long. Amazing. Alright, check out the complete list of winners below.

Okay, so I just realized that Poppy Chaos is actually Lady Gaga‘s childhood friend. I thought it was totally made up, but it’s not. They were indeed childhood friends and studyied classical music together and even stayed in touch when Gaga was trying to find her musical identity. Poppy just takes it to a whole new (comedic) level and the parody of Gaga’s wacky fashion both in the lyrics and in the video is brilliant.

At the beginning of the following video, Poppy Chaos is watching TV and can’t seem to escape the Gaga headlines on the television: “Lady Gaga is the single most famous human being on the planet,” says the anchor. This brings her to one question: “What does Lady Gaga have that I don’t have?”

Cut to the beginning of the music video for the song “Strange Objects (I Can Wear It)“, as Poppy and her entourage strut their stuff towards the camera and the song begins. I should note that the track is actually catchy too – LOL! The guy in the video (Abraham Sunshine) lists several different objects throughout the song, to which Poppy responds by saying “I can wear it,” and proves it by doing just that. In the chorus, she sings, “I – I – I can wear strange objects too, yeah”. LOL. Enjoy!

I am a freaking kiddy school girl right now. This story just made my day. MTV has just announced that the following people will be performing in the 2011 VMA Britney Spears Tribute: Madonna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and Janet Jackson . Demi Lovato & Selena Gomez are apparently in this tribute, but they clearly are not of the star caliber of the aforementioned women.

This is the most epic (gay) tribute of my lifetime. I haven’t been as excited for the VMA’s since Britney’s “Gimme More” trainwreck performance, and before that, the Madonna tribute with Christina, Britney & Missy Elliot. Speaking of which, Gomez & Lovato are included over Spears’ former Mickey Mouse club rival, Christina Aguilera? Ouch. I wonder if they asked her and she declined or if Xtina was just completely Xcluded.

Lady Gaga Debuts “You and I” Music Video Early

In: Music, Patrick, Videos

Originally scheduled to debut this Thursday on MTV, Lady Gaga has debuted the music video for “You and I” online ahead of schedule. Perhaps a birthday present to Madonna? The slower, country blue grass feeling song stands out amongst the other songs on her album (genre-wise) and I’m sure also attracts a new set of country monsters.

The video opens with Gaga walking down the highway, having walked from New York To Nebraska to find the guy she’s been in love with for six long years. This scene is intertwined with creepy clips, that somewhat make sense later on. I’m thinking it all comes down to a mermaid in love with a man…who has potentially figured out a way to make her human? But wait…there’s more.

This video is a lot of things. Gaga, as usual, has so many different looks in the video, including: Dressed in black with a fancy black hat on the highway (then beach), in her blue wig dancing with her backup dancers in a barn, then as a mermaid in a tub having sex with her man, then Gaga strapped to some sort of Frankenstein-esque device, then a plain blonde Gaga playing the piano with Drag Gaga sitting on top. Also, there are more Gagas, but I’ll stop there. It’s definitely very interesting to watch and no other artist would come up with a video like this to complement a song like “You and I”. Only Gaga. Enjoy the video below!

Earlier this month, Lady Gaga attended Britney Spears‘ “Femme Fatale” concert and met her backstage. According to The Sun, “They sat for around an hour gossiping and talking about collaborating together on a track. GaGa already has two songs in mind.”

During the concert, Britney gave a shout out to Lady Gaga, telling her fans, “I have a very special guest here tonight… Lady GaGa is here!” She then blew a kiss in the direction where Lady Gaga was seated. That’s Gaga in the header picture on the left, watching the concert. Watch the video of her announcing that Gaga is in the house below.

It seems like life is a drag for one, Mother Monster. On Twitter along with the message “You will never find what you are looking for in love, if you don’t love yourself,” Gaga debuted the look of her new single cover art for You and I. However, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Lady Gaga in drag as her alter ego Jo Calderone. He first appeared in September’s Vogue Hommes Japan.

Leaving her motorcycle rocker chick look behind, Gaga opts for a more rugged and mugshot-like looking photo op for her drag personality. I wonder if Jo makes an appearance in the upcoming video release. Gaga stated on Twitter that her 1,000th tweet would be the premiere of the You and I video. She is currently at 992. Only 8 more tweets to go! Are you looking forward to a new Gaga video? If you haven’t heard the song yet, give it a listen below. It’s actually one of my favorites from the album. It has that late 80’s/early 90’s rock feel.
