I don’t really know how reliable this website is, but there have been reports the Lady Gaga will be pulling out of Kanye West’s FAME KILLS tour. If she does, West is sure to lose a whole bunch of money.
MEDIATAKEOUT.COM has been reporting that Gaga is thinking of pulling out of the tour because of all the baggage that Kanye is bringing, probably because of that horrible MTV stunt he pulled.
An announcement is supposed to come as early as TOMORROW!
No major entertainment news source is reporting this just yet, not TMZ, People etc., so who knows HOW true this really is…I kind of hope it is. Kanye is really the reason why I’m not interested at all to go see that show.
I’ll keep on top of this.
Homorazzi’s Fashion Police Trinity is back. This time Redd, Tommy & Donovan take on the outfits seen on the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet- by far the most irreverent carpet of them all. Hope you enjoy our playful and biting critiques.
MVA’s Big Winners: Beyonce & Taylor Swift
Redd: I do like this outfit on Beyonce, it does show a lot of skin in the front without appearing to be too indecent. It’s also less theatrical than her usual getups… maybe this one isn’t from the House of Dereon. A classic one shoulder sheath dress would have been the appropriate choice for Taylor, but it ages and makes her look like she’s well into her 30′s. Although a little color and youth would have been a better choice.
Donovan: You called that one correctly Redd, this isn’t another fashion monstrosity from the House of
Crap Dereon. Beyonce looks smoking hot in this red hot Cavalli minidress- it accentuates all her best assets. “Ring The Alarm” for sure. Not only did she look Sasha Fierce in this plunging outfit, but the girl was even hotter during her “Single Ladies” performance! Out of context, Taylor Swift’s dress does look a tad Hollywood wife-ish but when you consider the fact she arrived to the awards on a horse drawn carriage a la Cinderella, it all fits. Loved her modern take on a classic fairy tale. Beyonce even played her fairy godmother when she brought Swift on stage to redo her speech. Taylor was definitely the evening’s princess.
Tommy: Beyonce Beyonce Beyonce…I think Beyonce’s favourite thing in the world is double sided tape for real. Every deep V she wear, her tits are ALWAYS safely secured, and always perfectly displayed. I will say that I am SO happy she stopped letting mama dress her. And Taylor, wel funny thing is I have actually grown to like this girl. I still HATE Love Song, but I think this girl is so cute. I love her first dress more than the red one she ended in.
The British Pop girl band, Sugababes have uploaded a new single to YouTube called “About a Girl” and I’m fairly certain it’s gonna be a hit. It also premiered yesterday on BBC Radio 1. The single, and their new album for that matter, was produced by RedOne, the guy who did Gaga’s Pokerface and Just Dance singles. It’s really catchy and ready for the clubs as is.
Their 7th album, called Sweet 7, comes out on November 23rd. This is the second single to be released from this album. The first one was “Get Sexy” (and I hated it) and it peaked at #2 on the UK singles charge.
I first became aware of the Sugababes with their single, Push the Button, which was very Europe and even more catchy!
Everyone is going Gaga over the Lady. Michael Bolton has now been working with Lady Gaga on his new album called One World One Love.
Apparently, the idea for the collaboration happened before she became super famous. Here’s what 56 year old Michael Bolton has said about his new unlikely partnership with 23 year old Lady Gaga:
“I was taking a break from production when my manager and the label tag-teamed me on the phone about writing with this young artist named Lady Gaga who I had never heard of – but they were raving about,” said Bolton. “They said she was a huge fan and wanted to write with me. No one had heard of her … but a minute into “Just Dance,” I thought, ‘This CD is gonna be huge!’” He went on to explain, “When I met her in the studio later that night, I realized she was not only about to have a big hit record, but Gaga was a superstar about to launch.” On working with her he said, “Her energy was so high and her focus excited me. She reminds me of a young Madonna, with more exuberance and emphasis on art rather than marketing,” he added.
She is unstoppable. Since she first came out, I think I had been one of the few people that thought she was going to be more or less a one hit wonder. Then, her singles kept topping the charts. Then, she kept making headlines with her bold fashion choices and no holds barred interviews. Then, she was maybe a hermaphrodite. And now, blasts from the pasts go to her to revive their careers. I still have a hard time with putting her into a category with Britney, Christina, Madonna, Kylie, etc. but if she keeps this up, she will succeed in being one of the girls. For me, I think it’s just a time thing. I think she just rose to such super stardom so fast, it’s hard to imagine it lasting at the level that it is at.
I love, love, love it when a current song is covered by another artist and they put their own spin on it like Mandy Moore covering of Rihanna’s Umbrella or Brooke White doing her rendition of Kings of Leon’s Use Somebody. The latest cover I’m obsessed with is Chris Daughtry doing an acoustic version of Lady Gaga’s Poker Face. This live performance was captured during a recent interview Daughtry was doing for a German radio station. Chris’ voice is so powerful and he gives Poker Face a totally different dimension. Silly Question. Explain to me again why he didn’t win American Idol that year and lost out to Taylor Hicks. Who says American Idol is fixed? The YouTube video has been online for a couple of weeks not but thought it still deserved a worthy mention. Hope you enjoy it.
Lady Gaga once again embraces her gay fans, on the cover of Out Magazine. The above picture isn’t the cover, but it is one of the shots from the shoot. As Out Magazine put it, pop’s newest — and gayest — superstar pulls back the curtain to reveal all is allusion in the art and artifice of fame. The photography is by Ellen Von Unwerth, with styling by Nicola Formichetti.
“This isn’t the Lady Gaga newscast,” she says. “Nobody gives a shit what is really going on — everyone wants me to tell them a story. Art is a lie, and every day I kill to make it true.”
Stefani Germanotta…that’s Gaga’s real name. The magazine article talks about an 18 year old New Yorker’s rise to super fame. We come to find out that her name was inspired by Radio Ga Ga, the Queen song name, and it was the idea of her producer, Rob Fursuri because her voice reminded him of Freddie Mercury.
Heidi Montag Pratt Conquers The Universe
Last week, the Miss Universe Organization announced that they will have performances by Flo Rida, David Guetta & Kelly Rowland and… Heidi Montag. Really?!?! WTF. The Miss Universe pageant is my favorite boobie special of the year next to the Victoria Secret Fashion Show. I can’t believe Pratt pulled of this coup. Maybe this was quid pro quo for agreeing to do that “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here” debacle. Though not a huge ratings powerhouse in North America, the Miss Universe pageant attracts an audience of approximately 1 billion viewers. A couple of years ago, Lady Gaga performed on that year’s telecast. Fast forward to today where Gaga is a huge international music star. Could Heidi be the next Lady Gaga? During the telecast, Flo Rida will perform “Right Round” and “Jump” during the swimsuit competition while Kelly Rowland & Guetta will perform during the evening gown portion. I wonder what part of the evening the producers will place Heidi’s “live” performance. LMFAO
Ryan Tedder Responds Back to Kelly Clarkson
A couple of days ago, I wrote about the Kelly Clarkson “Already Gone” / Beyonce “Halo” controversy. In the middle of it all is Ryan Tedder, who was responsible for submitting musical tracks to both artists. In a statement issued to TMZ.com Tedder (one half of OneRepublic) responds back to Kelly’s claim that he allegedly ripped off his own work and submitted identical tracks to both artists. Do you think that the two tracks are the same? Personally, both tracks do sound similar but they also have enough differences to make them stand on their own. Is Kelly overreacting? Did Ryan give one of the artists sloppy seconds or is it all much ado about nothing?
Here’s Ryan Tedder’s statement (editor’s note: this is copied verbatim, mistakes and all):
“‘Already Gone’ is one of the best song I’ve written or produced since ‘Bleeding Love’ and stands tall on it’s own merits apart from ‘Halo.’ They are two entirely different songs conceptually, melodically, & lyrically and I would never try to dupe an artist such as Kelly Clarkson or Beyonce into recording over the same musical track, the idea is both hurtful & absurd. I think when people hear ‘Already Gone’ they will hear what I hear-one of the greatest female vocalists on earth giving her most haunting and heart-breaking performance on a song she helped write. I challenge people to listen and form their own opinions.”
Every once in a while you hear a song and you think WTF. Then you hear it a few more times and you’re like this song is FRIGGIN AWESOME. That’s exactly what happened to me when I first heard LMFAO’s “I’m In Miami Bitch“. You’ve probably heard the song on the radio, at the clubs or on YouTube and probably had a similar response. On our (Brian and I) recent road trip to California, we heard this song literally on the hour every hour on radio stations from Seattle, Portland, San Francisco to Vancouver. Recently, I had a wicked opportunity to talk to this electro-hop duo from Hollywood. My only regret was that I didn’t conduct the interview at a club with a Vodka / Red Bull in hand as I’m sure it would’ve been a hella good time.
LMFAO is comprised of two Hollywood DJs named Redfoo and his nephew Sky Blu. The two began tinkering with DJ equipment as a pastime and have since turned clowning around into an art and a business. With early remixes of Fergie’s Clumsy, Kanye West’s Love Lockdown and Katy Perry’s Hot N Cold garnering some attention, the duo then started to make original dance songs in their studio apartment. The outcome was “I’m in Miami Bitch” which they released on their MySpace space which lead them to a record deal with Interscope Records. The two then developed their signature look of wearing loud colors, glasses with no lenses and sporting their own self-designed t-shirts and created their own label and clothing line, Party Rock (http://lmfao.bigcartel.com/).
