Lady Gaga releases 14-minute-long video for 'Marry the Night': Watch here!

One of the beautiful things about most music videos is that you can watch them in just a few — or maybe four or five — minutes, max.

But leave it to Lady Gaga to unspool a mini-movie that’s half the length of a sitcom episode. Folks, Little Monsters, and everyone else: Gaga has released her epic, 14-minute-long music video for her latest single “Marry the Night.”

And, as ever, the clip is a trip to Total Crazyville, population: 1, Lady Gaga — filled with a surreal visit to the ER, ballerinas, Cheerio-hording, naked bathtub writhing, Fame-style dance sessions, and cars catching fire.

Settle in for 14 minutes and watch the “Marry the Night” video below, but note that if you want to, you know, get right to the song, you’ll need to skip to about the 8-minute mark:

On the scene at the 2012 Grammy Nominations Concert: Best and worst moments

Lady-Gaga

Just before the Grammy Nominations Concert hit the airwaves on CBS last night, the show’s executive producer Ken Ehrlich appeared on stage and made quite the proclamation to those of us fortunate enough to be seated in the live studio audience: “This is a mini Grammys show,” he said. And if that was the goal, then: success! Performances! Presenters! Thank you, lucky stars, that “mini” also is code for: No speeches or exhausting monologues!

The show — which is designed to announce the year’s Grammy nominations but functions mostly as an hour-long concert — was indeed a “mini Grammys,” in that way that the Grammys has always managed to provide a mixture of performances that run the gamut from shocking…to boring. In that spirit of good and bad — and since I was there in the audience — I thought it only appropriate to provide a look at the live show in terms of best and worsts. Here goes:

Rebecca Black tops '50 Worst Music Videos Ever' -- Who else made the list?

No surprises here: In a list of the “50 Worst Music Videos Ever,” U.K. music mag NME gives Rebecca Black and her viral assault on music otherwise known as “Friday” the dubious top honor.

Though the list had its share of Brit-tastrophes, there is no shortage of American cheese. Some inclusions make absolute sense (Paris Hilton and Steel Panther, anyone?), though other artists who made the cut (Lady Gaga, Britney Spears) might cause more than a few internet mutinies.

Keep reading to see Black’s video and judge for yourself, then see which other guilty-pleasure highlights made the list: READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga chats about her bad romances. Maybe the problem is her oversharing in the press?

Oh, Lady Gaga. I love you, but do you ever have an inner monologue?

Wrapping up her year of flirting with overexposure, Lady Gaga has given an interview to Vanity Fair, and instead of talking Born This Way and bullying, she decided to get personal in a different way and discuss her relationships, or lack thereof, with men.

She told the magazine, “I have this effect on people where it starts out good. Then, when I’m in these relationships with people who are also creative, or creative in their own way, what happens is the attraction is initially there and it’s all unicorns and rainbows. And then they hate me.”

Interestingly, in her recent Thanksgiving special, Gaga shared that in her very public life, the one thing that is off-limits is her personal relationships (She’s reportedly dating Vampire Diaries actor Taylor Kinney). I guess that decision didn’t extend to trash-talking exs. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga announces release of surprise holiday EP: Hear a new track here

If you aren’t in the holiday spirit already, Lady Gaga is determined to get you there by this weekend.

First there was the barrage of ads for her A Very Gaga Thanksgiving special, airing tomorrow night; then, she launched her window bonanza at Barneys.

And now, making your traveling this weekend a little easier, she has also just announced on Twitter she is putting out a surprise mini-holiday release, A Very Gaga Holiday. I guess Lady Gaga: Total Holiday Domination was taken.

The four-track EP, all culled live from her Thanksgiving special and available now on iTunes, includes “White Christmas,” “Orange Colored Sky,” “You and I,” and “Edge of Glory.”

For a long time, many fans have been clamoring for some kind of EP or acoustic CD to really showcase her voice, as oppose to the fashion, flash, and onstage “decapitations.” After her well-received duet with Tony Bennett, this seems to be another step in that direction. The songs show how much her voice really is well-suited for the big-band and jazz-era stylings on these tunes — much like her slowed-down, showstopping performance of “Edge of Glory” on Howard Stern.

Listen to “White Christmas” — complete with an added verse, courtesy of Gaga — below: READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga releases two-minute preview of 'Marry The Night': watch here!

What a tease!

Lady Gaga has just released a two-minute preview for her new video, “Marry The Night” and it’s a doozy. Forgoing an elaborate costume, Gaga still manages to shock in a mousy brown bob and hospital gown, lying atop a gurney in a hospital fashioned similarly to the bath haus in the “Bad Romance” video.

The highly stylized clip has a lot of voiceover, with Gaga intoning, “And truthfully the lie of it all is much more honest, because I invented it,” and “It’s not that I’ve been dishonest, it’s just that I loathe reality.” This is a common theme of her concerts: getting lost in the fantasy; swept up in a dream. And on it’s own, that idea is not necessarily a bad thing.

But judging from the clip, it appears her reality is a suicide attempt; the video is dark, but also humorous — a side eye alongside emotional upheaval. It’s more than a little disturbing.

Did Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' giveaway inspire Billboard's new chart rules?

There was quite a bit of hemming and hawing back in May about the massive sales push that Lady Gaga’s Born This Way received when it was released.

The big controversy came when Amazon decided to use the album as a launching pad for its Cloud service and made the entirety of the record available for the low low price of 99 measly cents. Gaga ended up moving over one million units of Born This Way in its first week of release, though nearly half of those (around 440,000) came via the Amazon fire sale.

The e-tailer defended its choice by noting that it was a loss leader for their Cloud service, and that they actually paid full price to Gaga’s label for the album, but a lot of people viewed it as cheating.

Apparently, the folks at Billboard agree. Starting next week, the publication (which tracks album sales via Nielsen SoundScan) will overhaul their sales rules. There are a handful of new rules, but the juiciest one is the fact that albums priced below $3.49 will not be included in sales tallies.

Were those standards in place back when Born This Way hit the streets, Gaga’s total likely would not have broken that seven-figure threshold. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga splits with longtime creative director Laurieann Gibson

It’s not looking pretty in Monster-land.

This past weekend, it was announced that Lady Gaga has ended her partnership with her longtime creative director, Laurieann Gibson.

The move is a shocking one for Lady Gaga, who is known for her loyalty to her friends in the Haus of Gaga. Indeed, Gibson has been with Gaga since the pre-Fame days, and is the choreographer behind all her big hits. Fans can rightly be concerned about this new direction, as Gibson should definitely be given credit for having a hand in essentially everything Gaga has done up until now in her videos.

Gaga, for all her vocal prowess, has said herself that she’s not a dancer, and Gibson has been able to work with that and still choreograph a distinctive style in “Just Dance” “Poker Face” “LoveGame” “Paparazzi” “Bad Romance” “Telephone” “Judas” “Alejandro” and “Born This Way.” (Yup, you read that correctly. It’s pretty much all the hits).

The reasons for the break up have not been officially commented on, but problems first became apparent to fans during the filming of the “Judas” (which Gibson also co-directed) video this past spring, where the religious imagery, particularly Lady Gaga as a sexified Mary Magdalene, made Gibson uncomfortable. “At one point, there was two completely different views and after the third glass of wine, I was like, ‘Listen, I don’t want lightning to strike me. I believe in the Gospel and I’m not going there,” Gibson said at the time. READ FULL STORY
