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:

Katy Perry and Lady Gaga headed for singles sales showdown: Who will win?


Looks like we’ve got a good old fashioned diva-off on our hands.

Thanks to some Internet shenanigans and the fickle finger of fate, two brand new singles from superstar divas are now for sale. Katy Perry’s “Roar” went on sale yesterday, and as of 12:01 this morning, Lady Gaga’s “Applause” is available on digital store shelves.

As expected, the two singles immediately shot to the top of the iTunes sales chart (as of this writing, “Roar” is in the top position, followed closely by “Applause”), and they will inevitably be neck and neck as the week goes on.

With those two juggernauts chugging forward, we’re looking at an unprecedented digital sales week. According to Billboard, it’s not out of the question for both songs to sell half a million copies this week, which would be the first time in digital sales history that two debut songs sold over 400,000 copies in the same week.

What impact will this have on the Hot 100? READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga is ready for your 'Applause' -- hear her new single now

Lady Gaga fans, you may now stand up and cheer: “Applause” is upon us—one week early, and just hours after Katy Perry released the first single, “Roar,” off her fall album.

In Katy’s new song, which sounds like “Brave” by Sara Bareilles (more generally, I also hear Pink), she is a woman promising to “roar.” In Gaga’s new song, which sounds like something you might hear in a very accessible Berlin sex dungeon, she is a star demanding that you clap for her.

Of course, this being Lady Gaga, there are layers—she’s critiquing fame (we’re guessing). Although there’s surely nothing ironic about the music, which pounds and pounds until it finally achieves an almost pleasant climax. And yes, you can literally hear the sounds of applause:


Lady Gaga unveils cover art for single 'Applause,' takes off clothes, shows the world her new piercing


Are you curious about the cover art for the first single for Lady Gaga’s forthcoming album ARTPOP? Have you ever wondered what it would look like if Gaga got her septum pierced? If you answered “Yes” to either or both of those questions, then this is your favorite post of all time.

Gaga’s new single is called “Applause,” and the cover art features the singer’s face smeared with paint. “It’s the end of the night after the show,” she said of the image. “When I look at it I see that there is a longing for the applause. I see that there is a void that is leaking onstage, that the performer is leaking, that the art is sort of becoming something else in front of your eyes. Something more human, something more honest.” The shot was taken by photography team Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, who also helmed the forthcoming video for “Applause.”

She also tweeted this promotional photo for the single, which finds her nude on a chair made of motherboards.

The song itself will premiere on Aug. 19, which also happens to be the first day that ARTPOP will be available for pre-order and will mark the launch of the ARTPOP app.

Because she’s Lady Gaga, she didn’t just let the world see her new single art—she also let somebody take video of the inside of her nasal passages.  READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga announced as first VMA performer, will play new 'ARTPOP' single

Everybody better strap on a comfortable pair of shoes (so the Alexander McQueen lobster claw is out), because the march toward Lady Gaga’s new album ARTPOP is on.

Though we still do not know the name of ARTPOP‘s first single, that will not stop Ms. Germanotta from performing the new track for the first time at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards on August 25. (The single itself will roll out on August 19.)

Gaga is no stranger to the VMA stage—she memorably bled out while singing “Paparazzi” at the 2009 show, and in 2011 she treated the world to several hours of Jo Calderone. What wacky stagecraft will she break out this time? And will Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, the site of this year’s VMA show, ever be the same again? We’ll have to wait until August 25 to find out.

Lady Gaga is the first performer announced for this year’s show, and since the Moonmen themselves are relatively pointless (nobody in EW’s offices could remember that Rihanna won last year’s Video of the Year for “We Found Love”), the performances are the real draw. The rest will be rolled out shortly, but there are a handful of people they could book that would make perfect sense.  READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga announces 'ARTPOP' release date

Lady Gaga has been keeping a low profile since February while she’s been recovering a torn labrum in her hip, an injury that required surgery and forced her to cancel a number of tour dates. But she’s back, and she’s got some new stuff in store.

In a wordy Facebook post, Gaga announced that her new album ARTPOP will be out on November 11, with a single coming on August 19. Because it’s 2013, there will also be an interactive app that will do…something. It’s unclear, though it will be available on September 1, the same day ARTPOP is made available for pre-sale.

Lady Gaga recovering nicely from surgery, says manager

Lady Gaga’s manager says the pop star is “doing unbelievable” a month after she had hip surgery that caused her to cancel her U.S. tour.

Vincent Herbert said in an interview Tuesday the 26-year-old Grammy winner is “doing wonderful, doing great.”

Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, canceled her “Born This Way Ball” tour last month. She’d hurt herself while performing some time ago. READ FULL STORY

Injured Lady Gaga cancels entire tour

Lady Gaga has canceled the rest of her tour dates due to a hip injury.

Live Nation Global Touring said in a news release Wednesday that Lady Gaga has a tear in her right hip that will require surgery, followed by a recovery period.

The pop star’s website showed 21 dates through March 20 remaining on her Born This Way Ball tour schedule. Fans who have already bought tickets will receive a refund beginning Thursday.

Lady Gaga postponed four dates on Tuesday after experiencing difficulties Monday during her concert in Montreal. The singer’s show is high energy with non-stop dancing. She explained to fans on Twitter that she’d hurt herself while performing some time ago. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga postpones concerts due to injury

Lady Gaga says she’s “heartsick” to postpone four shows after sustaining an injury that’s left her unable to walk.

A Tuesday news release says performances set for Feb. 13-14 in Chicago, Feb. 16 in Detroit and Feb. 17 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, have been postponed due to a case of synovitis, a severe joint inflammation.

Gaga took to Twitter to explain, saying she injured herself during a performance some time ago and her condition has worsened, leaving her immobile following Monday’s concert in Montreal. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga brings Born This Way Ball to Los Angeles: On the scene


The inaugural balls may have been the talk of Washington on Monday night, but it was Lady Gaga’s Born this Way Ball that brought the house down at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The pop diva/fashion icon/songstress put on a show that was closer to a Broadway revue than a rock concert, lasting nearly two and a half hours, complete with a goth sci-fi “storyline,” about a dozen costume changes, and a bevvy of tight-ab’ed, midriff-baring dancers.

While Gaga is still a force to be reckoned with – legions of devoted “little monsters” were dressed in all manner of Gaga-ness, from wigs in every color to sky-high heels – the show was not sold out, and the spectacle of Gaga wearing crazy costumes or preaching about LGBT rights, while admirable and fun to see, did not feel as shocking or momentous as it has on past tours. That said, she more than delivered on the promise of an over-the-top glitterfest. READ FULL STORY
