Sylvester Stallone did it. Martha Stewart did it. Hell, even Michael Jackson did it. All three along with Danny Devito and Steve Spielberg made cameos in the previous two “Men In Black” films. With the third installment around the corner, director Barry Sonnenfeld confirmed a trio of celebrities making appearances as extraterrestrials in the film. Here’s what the director revealed:
“One of the joys is deciding who you would put up on the board, who you would tell the world are aliens,” Sonnenfeld tells the site. “And A) the challenge is you have to get permission from these celebrities and B) you don’t want to go with people that are either a flash in the pan, or political, or people that in 10 years no one will know who you’re talking about.”
I have to admit, I had little to no interest in checking out “MIB3“, but after learning who’s donning alien attire in the film, I have to check it out. Funny enough, when the three were revealed, I wasn’t surprised at all. Truth be told, they’re all a little whackadoo in their own right. Continue reading to find out.
Last week Entertainment Weekly gave us a sneak peek at it’s music issue. Naturally, Adele graced the cover where the publication names the “30 Greatest Artists Right Now“. With the British Songbird selling millions of copies of her second album “21″ (what sophomore slump???) and her domination at this year’s Grammys, Adele is not only the perfect choice for the cover but also as their No. 1 musician right now. Her success is nothing short of remarkable given that she wasn’t able to promote it for months due to surgery. She truly is changing the face of music today. Everyone’s trying to find and sign the next Adele.
Ranking the “30 Greatest Artists” of the moment is a dicey situation and EW.com is certainly going out on a limb. You’re bound to piss some people off with omissions and how low their favorite artist ranks on the list, if they make the cut. For instance, Lady Gaga and Beyonce barely make the list and don’t even crack the Top 20. At least they made it. I’m sure my Seattle friends and Patrick will be annoyed that their beloved Britney Spears was snubbed from the list.
Even a bigger omission, IMHO, is Madonna. Sure, she’s prehistoric but she did just clock in her eighth No. 1 album last week. Even equally fellow geriatric Bruce Springsteen ranked on the list. Why the Madonna hate??? That being said, I’m happy that a few non marquee names made the cut- Azealia Banks, fun. and Gotye all got some loving. See who else made EW.com’s Top 30 below.
As I had previously informed you about, yesterday Oprah’s interview with Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta aired on ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’. During the interview, Gaga said to Oprah, “Other than this interview, Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time. No press, no television.” I actually think that’s a good idea. Take a break, girl.
Gaga talked about everything from how her mother feels about her language and her crazy shows to if she wants marriage and children, and much more. “Yes, I want kids. I want a soccer team, and I want a husband.”
She even discussed the difficulties she’s had with dating. “I have struggled with that for a long time with dating. They want to know the real me. I’m sitting right here. When the spotlight’s not on me, I sometimes don’t know who I am because I feel alive on the stage. And that’s what Jo really was all about. If I had to do a performance art piece, confess who I truly am, that is my way.” With “Jo,” she was referring to when she dressed up as a man whom she called Jo Calderone. Check out the full episode (broken up into 8 segments below.
Next Sunday on ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter‘, we see Oprah travel to New York for an exclusive look inside the apartment Lady Gaga grew up in and still calls home. Also, for the first time ever, Gaga’s mother, Cynthia Germanotta, breaks her silence on what it’s like to be the mom of the world’s most famous pop star. So would she be called “Grandmother Monster”?
Does her mom call her Gaga or Stefani? We find out in this exclusive interview, learning more about Gaga’s childhood and her family life. “Other than this interview, Oprah, I don’t intend on speaking to anyone for a very long time,” says Gaga in the interview, in a very serious tone. Oooh, I wonder what they were talking about.
The two-hour event takes place this coming Sunday, March 18, at 9/8c on OWN. Watch the preview below!
Yesterday, Lady Gaga, her mother, and an all-star group of supporters that inlclude Oprah Winfrey, David Burtka, and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius launched the Born This Way Foundation. The launch took place at Harvard University and the objective is to promote a “braver, kinder world.”
Gaga explained: “I want it to be part of the natural fabric of schooling, so that someone knows that it is not OK to be intolerant of your children, it is not OK to be unaccepting, it is not OK to be violent because you don’t understand. If you teach your kids to love everyone, hopefully that will, over time, branch out.” Her mother, Cynthia Germanotta will take the reigns on the foundation.
“My mother really inspires me because she always talked about giving back ever since I was very, very young, and the more that I got to know my fans, the more that I got to realize that not everybody has that support system at home, and I thought about the nuclear family,” she said. “I thought about how we can create a place, the Born This Way Foundation, a place where the nuclear family means more than one thing. Your family can be anywhere. It can be the person that is sitting right next to you.”
Last night, Lady Gaga got into a bottle of wine and decided to surprise her fans with a little “homework” she had been working on as she put it. The result was a new tour poster for her forthcoming Born This Way Ball. It looks like Gaga is a serial tourer considering she just wrapped up her Monster Ball Tour last year. However, fans of Mother Monster’s Born This Way album will be excited to hear a few of the tracks that didn’t leak into the previous tour’s set list.
The tour poster’s design strays away from the theatrical looking side of the Monster Ball tour and sets the stage as a little blue and purple medieval. As Gaga looks on above the entire poster, below, we see her center stage amongst a few men dressed in suits on a castle-like set with one man grabbing a peak out of one of the castle’s windows. The whole poster matches the leaked sketch of what Gaga’s upcoming tour stage would look like. (Image after the jump.)
When Gaga leaked the poster, she also tweeted that the upcoming tour dates would be released at 11am PST today! 11 dates have been posted so far and I will share them with you after the jump and keep updating as they become available. Until then, check out the tour poster and the stage sketch below.
I have to be honest. And I know, I’m gay, but sometimes I don’t find Lady Gaga the least bit attractive. Not even remotely. Between the makeup, the crazy costumes and the outrageous character she portrays, I can’t seem to wrap my head around why her smouldering boyfriend Taylor Kinney is with her. And then BOOM! It hit me when I checked out Terry Richardson’s latest photos with Mother Monster.
Stripped down makeup and costume wise, Lady Gaga poses for the infamous photographer in a simple black leather jacket. Starting off by channeling her Born This Way cover, Gaga hops atop a motorcycle and gives some serious face before heading back into the studio and putting on Richardson’s glasses to imitate Terry for a few snap shots. Then, Gaga drops the top but covers her nipples with a football. Looks like Gaga is gearing up for Super Bowl Sunday. Check out the photos below.
On February 12 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, the biggest names in music will gather to celebrate their year with the Grammys. During award season, this is definitely one of the shows (aside from the Oscars) that I look forward to the most. And rumor has it that one Mother Monster will be hitting the stage to give a performance I’m sure we won’t forget. I am hoping that she’ll be performing her next single in a crazy outfit with a crazy set.
I had a hunch that this might be coming when she performed the track during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, but a French music site is claiming that indeed, Heavy Metal Lover will be dropping shortly as Lady Gaga’s next single. Little Monsters rejoice! This is definitely one of my favorite tracks on the Born This Way record. I was super bummed when she passed it over for Marry The Night which slowly grew on me as the single gained momentum with that epic video.
I think that Heavy Metal Lover has potential to be a great finale single for Gaga before introducing a new album or embarking on a Born This Way Tour. On Perez Hilton’s new show, she mentioned to him that she would love to do a tour to support the album and would either call it The Born This Way Ball or call it the previous but tag on In The Electric Chapel. However, I think we’re already over this album and ready for some new material. Give a listen to Heavy Metal Lover below.
