Lady Gaga wears a hover dress, performs 'ARTPOP' songs at Brooklyn artRAVE

At long last, we have arrived at the official release of Lady Gaga’s brand new album ARTPOP. And to celebrate, Gaga threw herself a party at a giant warehouse in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, on New York’s industrial waterfront.

Dubbed the artRAVE, Gaga’s fete featured performances of every track from the new album (she opened with “Aura,” that same way that ARTPOP does), the unveiling of new pieces by large-scale artist Jeff Koons ( including the massive sculpture that appears on ARTPOP‘s cover) and Marina Abromovic (previously seen staring down Jay Z and getting Gaga to traipse naked through the woods), and one of Gaga’s most spectacular entrances yet via a “flying dress” called “Volantis” that was essentially a wearable dirigible.

Check it out in action below.

Lady Gaga's 'Applause' video: Watch it here

Lady-Gaga-Applause.jpg

Whatever you think of Lady Gaga’s new single “Applause” (or any of her music, for that matter), you do have to give her credit as one of the few contemporary pop artists to really go all-in on music videos. So while the release of “Applause” as a single was a nice table-setter the main event is the just-released clip for the song.

In typical Gaga fashion, it’s all over the place. There’s a lot of black-and-white flailing, a giant magician’s hat, lots of creative items covering up Gaga’s breasts (including a bra that looks like a pair of hands and some Birth of Venus-referencing sea shells), and at least one scene with Gaga’s head on top of a swan’s body.

It crams an awful lot into three minutes, so you should probably just give it a watch below (and considering the amount of near-naked writhing, it’s probably vaguely NSFW).

Jimmy Fallon, Carly Rae Jepsen, and The Roots perform 'Call Me Maybe' with classroom instruments

Late Night host Jimmy Fallon, clearly sensing that the internet was suffering from a lack of “Call Me Maybe” covers, has just released a new version of the song along with his house band The Roots and Carly Rae Jepsen herself, who was a guest on his show last night.

Instead of reproducing the track’s bouncy synths, the backstage crew took a more elementary (school) approach and played classroom instruments — bongo, xylophone, melodica, tone block, and even a triangle — to bring the song a fresh, wonky energy.

Check out the goofy clip below (and notice how well certain Roots know the words): READ FULL STORY

All-American Rejects release new single 'Beekeeper's Daughter': Watch the dance-fantasia video (and Wayne Newton cameo) here

The All-American Rejects last scored a smash hit in 2008 with their break-up anthem “Gives You Hell,” which climbed to number 4 on the Hot 100, and, as of this week, has been downloaded more than 4 million times.

Unfortunately, the band’s next two singles, “The Wind Blows” and “I Wanna” couldn’t reach any higher than No. 113 and No. 92, respectively, and they disappeared for a couple of years.

Now, the spiky pop-rock Oklahomans are back with a new single, “Beekeeper’s Daughter,” and a colorful video to accompany it. Watch lead singer Tyson Ritter gallivant through choreographed dance scenes on a Hollywood lot (oddly reminiscent of Chris Brown’s “Yeah 3X” video  — without the martial arts) before headlining some sort of celebratory bumblebee parade: READ FULL STORY

Madonna talks Lady Gaga, ‘Born This Way’ comparisons, and kissing Nicki Minaj -- VIDEO

Madonna has never shied away from expressing herself, and in a new interview for 20/20, she finally answers one of the zeitgeist-iest questions of early 2011 (Better late than never!): Was “Born This Way” a straight-up Madge rip-off?

According to reports, Madonna was at first complimentary to Gaga, praising her talent for both singing and songwriting. But you know the lady can never resist a good diva-off, and eventually she went in for the cold kill:

“There’s a lot of ways to look at it. I can’t really be annoyed by it …because, obviously, I’ve influenced her…. When I heard it [“Born This Way”] on the radio… I said that sounds very familiar.”

She then said that “Born This Way” felt “reductive,” and when asked if that was a good thing or a bad thing, Her Madgesty smiled, said “look it up,” and took a sip of her tea.

Considering that she famously likes the press about as much as she likes hydrangeas, the singer handled silly questions about her 24-year-old dancer boyfriend with aplomb: “Behind the curtain, I’m just like everybody else.”

Lady Gaga has previously praised Madonna, saying, “Madonna is a wonderful influence on me.” And Madonna, previously, has been kind right back, telling Graham Norton, “When I first saw her I was really impressed by her. She was cool.” Has the diva detente been shattered now?

You can check out a preview of the interview, where she also talks kissing Nicki Minaj, below: READ FULL STORY

President Obama, like Lady Gaga, is ‘Born This Way’: watch the supercut video here

Is President Obama secretly a Little Monster?

It certainly seems that way in this new fan video, by the same YouTube user who previously dubbed the leader of the free world singing “(Cheers) Drink to That.”

In this follow-up, the President goes Gaga: The vid features a clever mash-up of the President’s speeches, intercut so that he appears to be doing “Born This Way” karaoke that would make Lady Gaga proud.

A speech at the Human Rights Campaign where he says, “I’ve had some productive bilateral talks with your leader, Lady Gaga,” leads into the clip; he’s certainly got some moves (Ba-rocking back and forth!) but unfortunately, the President doesn’t actually sport the Monster claw.

The song cuts out before Gaga’s extended ‘love yourself’ rap, so those hoping to see the President vogueing to “Don’t be a drag/Just be a queen” will have to make their own full-length video — no, seriously, please make that happen.

Check the President rocking out below: READ FULL STORY

Kelly Clarkson rocks out with flash mobs in new video 'Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)'

Flash mobs just found a new theme song, courtesy of the just-released video for Kelly Clarkson’s latest single, “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” her second single off Stronger.

Like some of her previous vids, the clip is half Clarkson on a stage, full attitude with the microphone, sassily walking around singing her story.

The other half explains how she’s been wronged: In this case, the story is essentially a giant “It Gets Better/Can’t Hold Us Down” dance-off the world over. Everybody is getting stronger all over the place — and whether it’s an exercise class, the beach, or Times Square, it’s the perfect place to let loose and move on. It’s “Since U Been Gone” round two. Clarkson’s got  your back.

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:

Katy Perry's 'The One That Got Away' video: Old-age makeup, movie stars, and more -- watch it here!

Benjamin Button’s got nothing on Katy Perry.

Perry has just released the official video for “The One That Got Away,” her fond look back at lost love. My giant takeaway from this surprisingly downer clip? Katy Perry is seriously creepy looking as an old woman. She’s rocking the white hair, but her face, for all the effects, still looks young. I never thought I’d prefer her hair bubblegum pink. It’s disconcerting.

Lady Gaga performs 'Marry the Night' for first time: watch the video here

Shockingly, here’s something Lady Gaga hasn’t done before: A stripped-down performance of “Marry the Night,” from India, complete with sitar accompaniment.

The video marks Gaga’s first live performance of the song — minus her briefly singing a few stanzas in her Monster Ball HBO special — which will be her fifth single off Born This Way.   The video for “Marry the Night” is set for release sometime in the next few weeks, and the cover art has already been revealed on Gaga’s Twitter account.

She marked her first trip to India with this performance in New Dehli, telling fans, “I’ve waited a lifetime to come here tonight, and I’m very grateful. I’m so happy I get to be here and sing for all of you.”
