Lady Gaga is about to release the 8 minute long music music video for Marry the Night and you know you’re going to be in for a wild ride.
Today, Lady Gaga unveiled a teaser of what appears to be the prelude to the video. The singer is pushed around in a gurney by two nurses in a hospital while she does a voice-over narration. It’s rather deep and artistic.
“Clinical psychology tells us arguably that trauma is the ultimate killer. Memories are not recycled like atoms and particles in quantum physics. They can be lost forever. It’s sort of like my past is an unfinished painting. And as the artist of that painting, I must fill in all the ugly holes and make it beautiful again,” she narrates.
Lady Gaga not only has a knack for artistic videos but a strong niche at writing. I wouldn’t be surprised if she dabbles in poetry after she’s done promoting her album, Born This Way.
Lady Gaga wrote to fans on Twitter that this will be the longest video she’s made so far. “[It’s the beginning of the story I never told you.”
Watch the teaser posted below.
Lady Gaga allowed controversial photographer Terry Richardson to follow her around for around for 10 months for her new book, “Lady Gaga X Terry Richardson”. The book showcases 350 photographs of Gaga in her everyday, intimate life.
E! says the visual diary hits stores November 22, just in time for Gaga’s Thanksgiving special on ABC where she performs eight songs, including one with Tony Bennett.
We’re not sure what type of vibes Gaga intended to emit with her reading, but the video she recorded is awkward. She’s sitting on a satin sofa, reading the book’s foreward in a slow, monotone voice.
It’s very well-written, but if she were reading to children, it would definitely put them to sleep. Terry’s photographs are fabulous, but please Gaga, no more readings!
Check out the video below.
Lady Gaga and her longtime choreographer Laurieann Gibson have parted ways – basically Gaga fired Laurieann.
MTO reports that an insider says it was a clash of egos since Laurieann got her own reality show. The insider explained, “Laurieann is a bit of a diva, but she had her ego under control – not anymore.”
And its been a steady buildup – with Laurieann telling the LA Times she is responsible for developing Gaga’s images. She said, “Listen, [Madonna] should be bitter because I [made Lady Gaga in her image] on purpose and you can quote me. I did it on purpose because for all those kids who believe that you can’t, I wanted to let them feel that you can.”
Last week sh*t took a real turn for the worse after the two got into a heated telephone argument. So Gaga fired her.
After her week-long stint in India, Lady Gaga joined Justin Bieber, Gwyneth Paltrow and a bevy of other A-listers at the Bambi Awards in Germany.
Not only did she win for Best International Pop Artist, she also gave an outstanding performance of her newest single, “Marry the Night”.
The coolest thing about her aesthetic performance was the piano attached to a black convertible. The lady in black rose up from her instrument mid-song, so fans could see her gigantic, gothic dress. Unlike other televised performances, Lady Gaga didn’t rely on heavy explosions, explicit dancing or controversial images to put on a good show. Her voice was flawless and the set design was subtly beautiful.
Check out her performance below.
For all you Americans, come November 24 you’ll have one Very Gaga Thanksgiving.
The flamboyant singer will host a 90 minute Thanksgiving special airing on ABC. Do you think one of her dozens of costume changes includes a roasted turkey?
The singer will be interviewed by veteran anchor Katie Couric and will also perform eight songs, including her new single Marry the Night, infront of a small audience, MTV reports. A world renowned chef will also appear on the show to share holiday recipes. It seems like this television special will have something for everybody.
Lady Gaga is an icon for gay, lesbian and transgendered youth. The singer announced yesterday she’ll start the Boy This Way Foundation that focuses on ”issues like self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring and career development.” It’s named after her latest album and hit single.
Billboard reports the 25-year-old singer will get her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, to direct the foundation.
The Grammy winner is always praising her young fans and she’s been meeting with President Obama to discuss ways to deal with school bullying that’s growing across North America. It’s great to see Lady Gaga focusing her passion and energy on this foundation. With her enthusiasm and creativity, Born This Way Foundation can do a lot for kids in need around the world.
In a written statement, Lady Gaga said:
“Together we hope to establish a standard of bravery and kindness, as well as a community worldwide that protects and nurtures others in the face of bullying and abandonment,”
While she has hired on her mother for an important role, she will announce advisory board members later next year when the foundation officially launches.
Looking rather colourful and somewhat classy in New Delhi, Lady Gaga held a press conference to discuss her four day visit. It’s a step up from her usual get-up of leather, fishnets and….that’s about all she wears. Here, she looks like the Queen of England that went on an exciting acid trip, and that’s a compliment!
The 25-year-old superstar is well known and well loved in just about every country except Antarctica. I’m not too sure penguins fancy the flamboyant singer’s music. However, in India, all eyes are on her. She’ll be for performing for India’s maiden Formula 1 Grand Prix this weekend.
At the conference, Gaga said she’ll be collaborating with Indian DJs at the show.
“I have built a special stage for this show that I’m doing for Sunday. It is unique for India and it has never been done anywhere else in the world,” she said.
This is the fist time the New Yorker’s stepped foot in India and she went on to say she’s looking forward to exploring the country while she’s there. Celebrity Gossip even reported that she’s staying in a luxious 3,500 square feet presidential suite at the world famous Taj Mahal. I mean, come on, it’s not like Gaga does Holiday Inn.
Akon initially signed Lady Gaga to his KonLive project at Interscope, and he was very involved with her career. However, he told MTV News that he is very hands off now.
“So the way it works is, Gaga’s on Kon Live/Streamline, which is Vincent Herbert, and it’s distributed through Interscope,” he explained to MTV News. “And the first two albums, we were fully involved in everything creative when it comes to Gaga, and then, as she grows, she becomes more in tune with herself [and] what she wants to do.
“Now she has full control over her project, period,” he continued. “Everything you see of Gaga now is all from her brain … and our job is just to make sure whatever she’s thinking we can make into reality. So I guess more so with the approval processes and everything like that, we still do what we do, but creatively, 100 percent, it’s all Gaga, and Vince does all the day-to-day stuff relating to Gaga.”
Akon has also said many times that Gaga has made him so much money, he can easily retire.
Four of the hottest stars will honour ordinary teens doing extraordinary things at the third annual TeenNick HALO Awards.
Taylor Swift will join Lady Gaga, actress Jessica Biel and soccer phenomenon David Beckham as they award four young individuals who have made a difference in their communities.
HALO, which stands for “Helping and Leading Others”, will recognize teens like James O’Dwyer, who started the Magnolia Disaster Relief, a program offering aid to rural areas affected by tornadoes. Taylor is the celeb scheduled to present O’Dwyer with his award.
MTV News says Nick Cannon will host the special ceremony in Los Angeles. It will be broadcasted on November 6 on Nick at Nite.
Barack Obama spoke to a crowd of gay and lesbian activists about his run-in with Lady Gaga.
Obama said, “I held some productive bilateral talks with your leader. She was wearing 16-inch heels. She was eight feet tall. It was a little intimidating.”
The You And I singer tweeted: “I am meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it.”
Simon Cowell allegedly called Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and Katy Perry boring. Simon is denying he ever said that, and he is now doing some damage control.
“If you only ever heard Lady Gaga, she’s the most boring singer in the world,” he reportedly told The Mirror. “You’ve got to see her — you need TV. Same with Beyoncé. Or Katy Perry. We’re all about image. You have to have that X factor.”
Now his publicist is trying to clean up the mess.
“This was completely misreported. It’s the complete opposite, in fact,” Cowell’s rep told RadarOnline.com. “Simon is a massive fan of both [Gaga and Beyoncé] and he always refers to them as amongst the artists he most admires. He thinks they are two of the most interesting, talented and relevant artists today.”
Cowell himself said, “It’s like they’ve all been bred to take over the world and dominate everything in entertainment. They are unbelievable, these girls.”
Simon has a tendency to open up his mouth when he shouldn’t. We believe he called them boring.
After the suicide of 14 year old Jamey Rodemeyer over the weekend, Lady Gaga wants to meet with President Obama to make bullying a hate crime.
In a video, Rodemeyer cited Gaga as an inspiration, saying, “She makes me so happy. She lets me know that I was born this way. And that’s my advice to you from her: You were born this way. All you have to do is hold your head up and you’ll go far.”
Gaga tweeted, ”The past days I’ve spent reflecting, crying, and yelling,” she tweeted. “I have so much anger. It is hard to feel love when cruelty takes someone’s life.” She went further, posting Rodemeyer’s “Better” video, and insisting that bullying “must become illegal. It is a hate crime.”
This is some really cool and historic footage. In 2008, Lady Gaga visited Kat Von D’s LA Ink for some elaborate lower back art.
Gaga received a tattoo from Kat and talks about working with New Kids On The Block. This episode was filmed before Gaga was a huge pop star.
“Lady Gaga is one of the most exciting and relevant artists of our time, and we’re thrilled to have her join ‘New Year’s Rockin’ Eve’ this year in Times Square,” Seacrest said of her addition to the lineup.
This particular year is especially special as it’s the 40th anniversary of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.
The magazine talks with Gaga about managing public expectations and her diet.
”Don’t you think that what’s on the cover of a magazine is quite artificial?” she asks.
“There’s this idea that it’s all natural, but everything’s been staged to look natural. It is also an invention. It’s just that my inventions are different,” she elaborates. ”I often get asked about my artifice, but isn’t fashion based on the idea that we can create a fantasy?”
And how does Gaga stay in shape?
“I do yoga, I do Bikram and I run, and I eat really healthy. You know, my work sort of feeds me. I keep in shape by working hard.”
The video showcases the participants talking about where they were when 9/11 occurred, and encourages all people to pay tribute to those lost in the attacks.
Below is a first among many other videos that are scheduled to appear throughout the week.
Reps at the Nokia Theater quickly approached Cudi and asked him to put out the cigarette. He complied as a rep told TMZ, ”He was asked to put it out and he complied.”
Cudi didn’t get the memo that you can’t smoke in public and enclosed spaces. Nevertheless, it’s still badass….

Ian Clarke took the advice of his oldest daughter and named his second daughter ”Meggie Maisie Lady GaGa” and his first born son “Tommy will.i.am.”
His wife was not so pleased. ”I’m trying to convince him not to. He’s done it once so I’m sure he will do it again.”
She tells MTV News, “I wrote that song a long time ago, and I’ve never put it on one of my own albums for, really, no particular reason. I always write these concept records, and it just didn’t fit in. But it’s always been, like, this big, massive, beautiful hit record and everyone always says, ‘Why don’t you put that on your album?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know, it just doesn’t fit with everything else.’
“Cher heard the song and loved it and wanted to do it together. And I said, ‘F**k yeah, it’s Cher!”
