There’s just no stopping him. Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” clocks in another week on top of the Billboard Hot 100. The monster hit rules for a 12th week joining an elite group of 14 songs to spend at least twelve weeks as No. 1. If “Lines” can keep its grasp on the pole position for four more weeks, it could tie Mariah Carey and Boyz II Mens’ epic duet, “One Sweet Day,” as the longest-running chart-topper.

Holding steady at No. 2 is “Roar” by Katy Perry. With “Lines” slowly eroding in airplay, Perry could unseat him in the coming weeks. On the flip side, Lady Gaga’s “Applause” rises from 6-4 on the strength of the accompanying music video. Streaming on YouTube, Vevo and other online sites now factor with chart placement. Sandwiched in between the two ladies is Thicke’s VMAs duet partner Miley Cyrus with her hit, “We Can’t Stop.”

2013 MTV Video Music Awards: Five Takeaways

In: Donovan, Music

By the time I got home last night from my camping weekend trip, I was too exhausted to watch the MTV Music Video Awards. I finally got around to checking out the telecast this afternoon. Thankfully, for the power of digital recording devices, I was able to go through the entire program in half the time. Overall, it wasn’t a bad show with a handful of highlights. Check out my top five takeaways from the 2013 MTV VMAs below.

Well, that didn’t take very long. Just a week after Lady Gaga released “Applause,” Kia uses it for its new commercial. Was Katy Perry’s “Roar” too expensive to license? I kid.

For the new clip, the Korean car manufacturer puts its rodent mascots to work (literally). The Kia hamsters transform themselves from frumpy to lean, mean, head-turning machines, much like their all-new Kia Soul. Watch as they hit the gym and shed their furry folds to Gaga’s latest anthem. Check out the cute commercial below.

Typically, I don’t like writing about Perez Hilton, but his latest move against Lady Gaga is too hilarious to ignore. Before I discuss it, let’s do a quick rundown of the chain of events leading up to it.

A few years ago Lady Gaga and the celebrity blogger were the best of friends, with some even crediting Perez for putting her on the map. Something behind the scenes must’ve happened along the way because the two are embroiled in a bitter feud. Recently, the “Applause” singer accused Hilton of stalking her. She tweeted the following:

@perezhilton STAY AWAY FROM ME + MY FAMILY YOU ARE SICK TRYING TO RENT AN APARTMENT IN MY BUILDING TO STALK ME. LEAVE ME ALONE!!!

DO I NEED TO BE SHOT IT IN THE HEAD FOR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THAT HIM AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT HARASSES ME HAS GONE TOO FAR? IM A HUMAN BEING

Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) August 18, 2013

Allegedly, the falling out began when Perez sent a photo of her in a wheelchair with a snarky message after her hip accident. Gaga tweeted, “Still have the text Perez sent me of me in a wheelchair w the words KARMA written across + Madonna pointing a gun at me. Day of my accident.”

Perez responded with a letter which I’ve posted at the end of this post. His statement resulted in numerous death threats by Gaga’s fans. The blogger has retaliated in a hilarious way that directly benefits Christina Aguilera. Find out how below.

Lady Gaga Premieres Official Applause Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

Just a week after Lady Gaga officially released “Applause,” she’s debuted the music video on this morning’s Good Morning America. Why the rush? I’m sure in part because sales of her new single are lagging. In fact, Katy Perry’s “Roar” is more than doubling her numbers based on early projections. OUCH. Perhaps, the new visual will boost up her numbers a bit more.

For a Gaga video, the “Applause” visual is relatively normal. Minus a shot of her head on a black swan, it’s pretty much Mother Monster just dancing, mugging for the camera or writhing on a mattress. I’m also a little surprised that the Inez & Vinoodh-directed clip lacks any sort of narrative. I almost sorta like her lyric video more where she was hanging out with drag queens in West Hollywood.

With that said, the 27-year-old singer serves some major fierceness wearing a hooded bodysuit, wicked bra resembling hands and posing like Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus. Check out the video below.

Which Lady Gaga V Magazine Cover Is The Best?

In: Donovan, Music

There hasn’t been a day this entire week on the site without a Lady Gaga post. Might as well keep the streak alive with another one about the “Applause” singer.

Last year, Gaga graced the cover of Vogue’s coveted September issue. This September, she finds herself on another publication’s cover, or should I say covers. V Magazine tapped Miss Germanotta for four covers. Whether she’s serving Chrissie Hynde fierceness in a sequined bolero or wearing a Versace paperclip dress, girlfriend is givin’ it. Gaga once again enlisted the dynamic photographing duo of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin to snap her in looks styled by her new fashion director Brandon Maxwell.

It’s definitely been a busy week for Mother Monster. From dealing with the leak of her new single, to hitting gay hotspots in West Hollywood to film the lyric video or just hitting the town in her clown makeup, the 27-year-old has been one busy drag queen ;) Check out all the covers below and weigh in on which one is your favorite.

Lady Gaga Enlists Drag Queens For Applause Lyric Video

In: Donovan, Music

One of my favorite things to do whenever I’m in Los Angeles is check out the drag show at Micky’s. Clearly, it’s a must-see event for Lady Gaga as well.

Earlier this week, the 27-year-old singer visited the West Hollywood nightspot to film footage for her “Applause” lyric video. For all you RuPaul’s Drag Race viewers, you’ll recognize a few familiar faces. Fan favorites Shangela, Willam, Morgan McMichaels and more sashay their stuff in the clip. A couple of them even sport Gaga’s clown makeup. Check out the drag-tastic video below.

Did Lady Gaga Plagiarize Madonna? (Again)

In: Donovan, Music

You knew it was coming? Within days of “Applause” surfacing online, plagiarism claims have once again befallen Lady Gaga. Not surprisingly, Madonna is involved.

While not completely blatant like “Born This Way” ripping off “Express Yourself,” fans of Madge allege Mother Monster’s latest sounds too similar to “Girl Gone Wild.” Personally, it’s a stretch, but I will say one thing. The two tracks make for one wicked mashup. Check out the audio below and weigh in afterward if you think Gaga has once again dipped in the Material Girls’ pool of hits.
