Monster invasion!

Lady Gaga will make her debut SXSW performance next week. Last week, reports surfaced that the singer was denied a permit to perform at the Doritos 56-foot vending machine-shaped #BoldStage, but today the singer announced she would headline the festival March 13.

Gaga announced the news in the Gaga-iest way imaginable. “[I'll be performing] as part of the Born This Way Foundation night on the Doritos stage,” she says via video. “I believe being an individual and speaking your mind is one of the boldest things you can do. I will be celebrating that Thursday night. We are for the bold. This is a very special show…only people who prove their boldness are able to get in.”

What does that mean, exactly? Watch Gaga’s announcement video below: READ FULL STORY

Beyonce explains how she got 'Drunk on Love' for new album -- VIDEO

beyonce-self-titled-part-3.jpg

There’s no need to let post-holiday blues get you down — not when Beyoncé has given us all yet another visual present. (Technically, the clip was released Dec. 25 — but you spent that day spending time with friends and family instead of trolling the Internet for new Beyoncé videos, right? Riiight?)

This latest clip is the third installment in Bey’s introspective “mini art feature” “Self-Titled,” which goes behind the scenes of the diva’s record-breaking surprise album — er, “details Beyoncé’s mind-set and artistic vision throughout the making of the entire project.”

Part 3, “Run ‘N Gun,” focuses on a trio of tracks: “Drunk on Love,” the one about how great it is to share a marital bed with Jay-Z; “No Angel,” which boasts a gritty video shot in Houston’s Third and Fourth Wards; and “Yoncé,” the one about Queen B’s fiercer-than-Sasha-Fierce new alter ego. Beyoncé also uses it to explain her whole album’s general aura and strategy: “It’s been interesting the last few videos — we’ve been like, deciding what we’re going to do as we’re there,” she says. “And there’s something about that freedom that is different for me, ’cause I usually plan things. I’m trying to rebel against perfection.”

See the rebellion — plus Beyoncé stalking across a beach at night wearing a bathing suit and carrying a trophy, as you do — below.

Beyonce gets down with grills and girls in new 'Yonce' video -- WATCH

Still haven’t gone to the trouble of downloading Beyoncé, the star’s self-titled surprise visual album? (Who could blame you — all that clicking!) If so, you’re in luck — because its super sexy “Yoncé” video is now available for free online.

Who, exactly, is Yoncé? Just consider her a fiercer Sasha Fierce — tricked out with grills, a belly ring, and outfits like a bondage-inspired orange bathing suit. She’s also pals with supermodels Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls, and Chanel Iman.

“I wanted to do something sexy and provocative, but not so overt,” video director Ricky Saiz told New York Magazine shortly after Beyoncé’s release. “I feel like the Mileys and the Rihannas have that covered and this was more sophisticated. There are a lot of references to nineties eroticism and Madonna videos. We shot it against one wall for the most part, so I was looking a lot of Carlo Molino photos. I feel like they are some of the sexiest photographs ever taken of women. They are so simple and voyeuristic and raw.”

Mmm-SNAP: Zac Hanson calls loud fan a 'drunk b--ch' -- VIDEO

What a difference 17 years make. In 1996, Zac Hanson was an angelic 11-year-old who enjoyed taxi rides, cornrows, and frolicking on the beach with his equally blond brothers. Nearly two decades later, he’s a grown man with two children (!) and no qualms about calling an overly enthusiastic female fan a “drunk b–ch.”

While performing “Lulabelle” in Richmond, Virginia recently, Hanson was interrupted by a disturbance from the audience. Naturally, the incident was caught on video.

Lady Gaga/Cher duet hits the internet: Hear 'The Greatest Thing' here

It’s like two unicorns made a beautiful, unwanted baby: Yes children, Cher and Gaga did a duet; and no, you were never meant to hear it.

Because apparently “The Greatest Thing” is not great enough to officially be released. According to Cher‘s Twitter, first it wrongly snuck onto the internet:

Disappointed( Ive Sat on fkng song 4 over a yr )NOW SOME ASSHOLE LEAKS WRONG VERSION ! GaGa’s SINGLE IS GREAT, & THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS

And anyway, Gaga had already nixed it:

Beyonce at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn: Who runs this mother?

“Brooklyn! Welcome, Brooklyn.”

Brooklyn, in fact, had already been hyping itself up for approximately 75 minutes when the first thundering notes of the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour rung out in the sports stadium formerly partially owned by Mr. Carter – and frankly, seemed about ready to collectively pee its pants. (Or more accurately, its fancypants; a Beyoncé crowd does not stint on the Saturday-night spangles.)

Because, of course, neither would the guest of honor: Emerging in an intricately iced-out onesie that can best be described as Razzle McDazzle Goes to the Fierce-Capades, she launched immediately into a frenetic “Run the World (Girls),” on through “End of Time” and B’Day‘s “Flaws and All.”

It took a minute to process what was different about her version “If I Were a Boy” — basically, that she was weaving it through an instrumental refrain of  the Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony,” which mostly weirdly worked. READ FULL STORY

Rihanna calls out UK journalist in Instagram rant

RiRi is unapologetic indeed: Taking a page out of M.I.A.’s playbook, the outspoken pop star reacted to an unfavorable article written about her in the UK’s Daily Mail by taking swipes at the author via social media.

It all began when journalist Liz Jones took Rihanna to task in the Mail for being a “toxic role model,” admonishing the multiplatinum singer for, in Jones’ opinion, regularly promoting sex- and drug-laden imagery, publicly continuing her relationship with abusive beau Chris Brown, and flaunting “the sort of fashion sense on stage that surely invites rape at worst.” Hmm.

This is what happens when you irritate Rihanna in concert -- VIDEO

YouTube’s most-viewed artist was recently caught on tape whacking an overzealous fan with a microphone during a performance in Birmingham, England.

As “We Found Love” blared, the singer left the stage to interact with fans on the ground, touching their hands as she walked past the concert’s first row. When one attendee apparently refused to let go of RiRi, she responded with a quick, decisive mic hit. All the while, Rihanna’s voice continued to emerge from the venue’s speakers; perhaps she was using some sort of British wizard magic.

The video is lo-fi, to say the least — and annoyingly, an ad pops up during the money shot. Still, you can tell that Rihanna’s move was deliberate, though it’s tough to say where she hit the fan and whether the smacked one ended up being injured.
