Without a doubt, ARTPOP‘s legacy will be how horribly “Do What U Want” was mishandled. Even though it wasn’t originally planned as the second official single, Lady Gaga switched things up because the slinky pop track was getting the most favorable reviews. The only early criticism it faced was the inclusion of alleged sex offender R. Kelly on the sexual track. Even with that, it had momentum to be a hit.

Sadly though, a music video was never released, reportedly due to Gaga putting her trust in the wrong people. The single looked to have a second shot when Mother Monster joined forces with Christina Aguilera for a headline-grabbing live performance on The Voice. Why she chose New Years Day to release the single with Aguilera on iTunes was a little perplexing. And now comes this.

Steven Redant was commissioned to work his magic on the track. The 27-year-old “Applause” singer uploaded four official remixes by the Barcelona-based DJ on her YouTube account recently. Gotta wonder why it took so long to put these up. Even as hot as these dance remixes are, the window for “Do What U Want” to be ARTPOP‘s lone chart-topper has come and gone. Check out the remixes below.

2014-glaad-media-awards

For 25 years the GLAAD Media Awards have honored entertainment, journalism and individuals who exhibit outstanding images of the LGBT community. The winners will be presented in two ceremonies this Spring- April 12 in Los Angeles and May 3 in New York. Among the nominees this year include Dallas Buyers Club, Elton John, Orange Is The New Black, Lady Gaga, Geography Club and Pretty Little Liars. Given how homo-erotic Teen Wolf is, the MTV supernatural series received nada. The organization also puts the spotlight on online and traditional publications. Check out all the nominations below.

2014 Razzie Nominations: Grown Ups 2 Lead The Pack

In: Donovan, Movies
grown-ups-2-razzie-nominations

A day before the Academy Awards reveal their nominations for the best in cinema the past year, we learn the worst. The Golden Raspberry Award aka the Razzies are here to remind Hollywood to “own their bad” for some truly awful films and performances. Leading the pack with a whopping eight nominations is Adam Sandler’s ensemble comedy, Grown Ups 2. Following close behind with six nods a piece are After Earth, A Madea Christmas and Movie 43.

Sandler who’s won “Worst Actor” honors the past two years for Jack and Jill & Just Go with It (2011) and That’s My Boy (2012) is going for an unprecedented consecutive third win for his lead role in Grown Ups 2. A couple of years ago, Adam also picked up “Worst Actress” for Jack and Jill. That film made history by winning a record 10 awards that year.

Earning their first ever Razzie nod are some of the silver screen’s most recognizable luminaries, including past Oscar nominees Johnny Depp and Naomi Watts. Jaden Smith, Lady Gaga and Selena Gomez also broke their Razzie cherry this year. On the complete opposite spectrum, Sylvester Stallone earns his staggering 31st nomination. The Razzies will be held on March 1, the day before the Academy Awards hand out the Oscars. Check out all the dishonorable nominations below.

Can’t decide which version of “Do What U Want” you like best? Torn between R. Kelly’s sultry soulful vibe and Christina Aguilera’s growling ad libs? Perhaps, Rick Ross’ sick rhymes are more your flavor. Whichever collaboration you prefer, you’ll go bat sh*t crazy for this megamix, or what I like to call “DWUW Version 4.0,” featuring all of Lady Gaga’s duet partners.

In other Gaga-related news, she recently apologized to her little monsters for the delay of the accompanying music video. The “Applause” singer cryptically wrote on her website that some people “betrayed her” by “mismanaging” her time and health.

Call me a skeptic but I just don’t see Gaga being pushed around. I feel her entire image and direction is heavily controlled by her. The conspiracy theory-loving person that I am, thinks Gaga and Terry Richardson are preparing an ultimate clip featuring R. Kelly, X-Tina and Ross. Don’t you think? Check out her entire apology below, along with the megamix.

Sorry R. Kelly, but you’re yesterday’s news. As fantastic as the original duet was, along with some pretty wicked live performances, Gaga pushed the R&B singer aside. The “Applause” chanteuse released a studio version of her epic duet with Christina Aguilera at the stroke of midnight New Years.

As much as I like the new studio recording, I was hoping more of a growl-off similar to their live Voice performance. With that being said, any track that features X-Tina on guest vocals is always fantastic. Give it a listen below. Just in case you missed their live duet, I also added that as well. Lady Gaga’s “Do What U Want” featuring Christina Aguilera is available to download on Amazon.

It’s a pretty savvy move for Gaga to release an alternate version. For those who were uncomfortable with R. Kelly singing about doing stuff to one’s body given his controversial sexual past, the Xtina version could be easier to swallow (excuse the pun). Don’t you think? Weigh in below.

We’re taking the day off today, so we decided to repost some of our favorite Christmas-themed posts from this and previous years.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.

Hey fellow homos. How’s everyone’s Christmas shopping getting along? Thankfully, Patrick and I completed a big chunk of our list yesterday afternoon. Getting out of the house to do a few holiday tasks definitely helped get me in the Christmas spirit, something I feel like I have been lacking in this year. If you are like me and need a little holiday pep, I’ve decided to compile a list of some of my favorite Christmas tracks to add to your playlist. Here we go. (Please note, this article is being written very tongue in cheek.) Enjoy!

Wham! – “Last Christmas”

This song is a must-have on your holiday homo playlist. It’s sure to be a crowd pleaser at any party and will make your spirits gay and bright! It doesn’t hurt that George Michael who’s on our team is the mastermind behind this Christmas tune that we all know and love. See more of my holiday favorites below.

The time has finally arrived. It’s time to crown the Season 5 winner of The Voice? While the main purpose of tonight’s show is to reveal the results, there were plenty other highlights. I’m not even going to sugarcoat it. Lady Gaga’s surprise duet with Christina Aguilera on “Do What You Want” was epic. R. Kelly who? They harmonized beautifully, drank champagne and were overall FIERCE. These two need to head to the recording studio immediately. Check out that performance below, along with the others and the results.
