As you may know, Lady Gaga decided to attend the 86th Academy Awards ceremony last night. But the best thing about it is: no one fucking cared!
You may ask yourselves: what was she doing there?
Last time I checked, they haven’t created the Academy award for best adapted Madonna category yet, so… what was Lady Gaga doing there exactly?
Oh, yeah, of course! She is in desperate need of some publicity right now:
Her tour isn’t selling out, and her latest album did not produce any hit! So what’s left for a woman in her position to do than to put on her Versace gown and walk down the red carpet of any award show?
Good for us: the reception Lady Gaga had at the Oscar’s only reinforce the notion that no one cares about her anymore. Even morning shows passed on the opportunity to interview her!
According to Lainey Gossip, Michael Strahan completely dissed Lady gaga and passed on the opportunity to interview her at the red carpet.
Our balcony sits right on top of the Live! With Kelly & Michael corner. Almost every major star stopped to be interviewed by Michael on the red carpet. Charlize Theron, Kerry Washington, Lupita – big, big names. So Gaga saunters down the carpet, towards Michael Strahan, and they make eye contact, and she lifts her hand to wave…and he turns his back. Which means he turned down the opportunity to interview her. Didn’t even try. Didn’t even care. Not interested.
A minute later, Bill Murray comes along. Michael wants Bill Murray. Well, of course he wants Bill Murray. But the point is, you’d think he would have gone for Gaga too. But if morning television is even passing on Gaga, what does that say about Gaga? Seriously, nobody f-cking cared. And it couldn’t have been more obvious, the disconnect between how much she thinks they care and how little they did.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Lady Gaga is now calling up the producers of Live! With Kelly & Michael trying to line-up an appearance on their show to prove to everyone that she is welcome and loved by them. You know, cause God forbid anyone thinking she isn’t loved by anyone on this Earth…
Considering that the red carpet is where celebrities go to be seen and judged by the way they look, don’t you think Lady Gaga looked a little bit too bloated and uncomfortable?
The poor thing…
If you think we are being unfair, let me bring you this clip from VH1’s Gossip Table, where they said the same exact thing:
Nobody cared about Lady Gaga at the Oscar’s, even though she arrived a little late just to make sure she got all the attention on the red carpet:
On the other hand, here’s how Madonna looked last night (wearing 1,000 carats of diamonds):
It seems Madonna’s Oscar’s after party has become the biggest bash in town! She is slowly killing Elton John’s party! Take a look at their guest lists and figure out where the has-beens and try-hards go, and where the real stars go:
Elton John’s party: Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Steven Tyler, Ozzy, Sharon and Kelly Osbourne, Kim Kardashian and sisters Khloe and Kourtney…
Madonna’s party: Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Miley Cyrus, Tom Ford, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi, John Travolta and Kelly Preston, Sean Penn and Charlize Theron, Anne Hathaway, Prince…
No wonder why real A-listers go to Madonna’s bash!
And speaking of the Oscar’s, I cannot talk about the ceremony and Madonna, and not mention her iconic Dietrich-esque performance at the Academy Awards in 1991 (I like it better than her performance of You Must Love Me in 1997):
"A girl can get awfully awful in the spotlight," said Madonna during her performance. Clearly, she’s a woman ahead of her time! She was probably talking about Lady Gaga back then! You know… if there’s a girl who is always awfully awful in the spotlight, that’s her!
And we thought Billboard would try to recover their damaged reputation when they fired Bill Werde, and hired
Angela Cheng Janice Min instead. Oh well, we were wrong! They are still publishing lies on Lady Gaga’s behalf.
"Lady Gaga’s sold-out Roseland Ballroom Residency" they said, "sold out within minutes" they added.Yeah, cute. In what motherfucking planet?
Right now, none of those shows are “sold out.” And you can check it out for yourselves:
As of right now (Friday, February 21, 2014, around 5.30 pm Eastern time), you can buy tickets for FIVE (of the seven) Lady Gaga shows at the Roseland ballroom on Ticketmaster (the primary ticket seller for the concerts).
The other two shows? They aren’t sold out either. They are on hold. You can expect those tickets to be put for sale anytime soon. Go to Ticketmaster and check it for yourselves! Here’s what comes up:
What makes it even worse and more embarrassing, is that the Roseland Ballroom is a small venue! For a regular concert, the Roseland Ballroom can accommodate 3,200 people standing, 2,500 for a dance party, between 1,300 and 1,500 in theatre style.
Yes, that’s right! Lady Gaga can’t even sell out small venues like the Roseland Ballroom even after several weeks with the tickets in the market.
What is even more embarrassing is how her fans still believe in her ever-pathetic, never-ending "I love my fans, not their money" rhetoric. That Billboard article says that fans can purchase these additional tickets for $400 to gain access to a “VIP soundcheck.”
Yes, $400 dollars so you can enter the venue earlier to watch her rehearse/do a soundcheck. What kind of “love” is this? Surely, not love for her fans, but for her bank account. An interesting paradox can be found in Madonna.
The Queen of Pop is often described as a “bitch,” but she never charged her fans to gain access to her soundcheck/rehearsals, or to pay to meet her (which Gaga does, despite her “I love my fans, not their money” discourse). God! Madonna didn’t even charge her fans to be inside the Golden Triangle (the closest area to her stage)!
I was chosen to be in Madonna’s Golden Triangle five times - and I didn’t need to spend a dime for those passes! Now, ask me what happened to the Madonna fans who arrived at the venues she was playing way before concert time (while Madonna was still doing her soundcheck)? They got in for FREE! Using their FREE Golden Triangle passes! The complete opposite of Lady “I-love-my-fans” Gaga, who is now charging $400 a ticket so her fans can see her do a soundcheck.
Little monsters are not only culturally void, but they are real fools!
And just because not only Madonna is endlessly better, more talented, and more interesting than Lady Gaga, but being a Madonna fan is more rewarding than being a Lady Gaga fan, below there are some videos of Madonna interacting with her fans during the soundcheck for her shows from different places around the world.
PS.: no one had to pay $400 to gain access to neither the Golden Triangle, nor the soundcheck. Take that Lady Gaga and little monsters!
London - ”Are you sending those outfits to Lady Gaga?”
Amsterdam - Singing “Deeper and Deeper,” “Physical Attraction” and “Give it 2 Me” with her fans:

Watch Katy Perry’s new video here!
Perry Patra just released the video for her #1 hit Dark Horse!
The song has already been #1 for FOUR weeks in the US without a video, and this new release will ensure it will spend a few more days around the top of the charts.
Dark Horse is Katy Perry’s NINTH #1 hit, cementing her position (alongside her personal friend, Rihanna) as one of the most prolific hit-makers in the current scene.
Katy is kitsch and she knows it - that’s the best thing about her videos. We are glad she has found the success she has by embracing herself truthfully.
You know, unlike Katy Perry, there’s a very sad and desperate popstar who tries very hard to be taken seriously - her delusions of grandeur are equivalent to Mariah Carey’s!
Fortunately, that sad and desperate popstar has achieved only A THIRD of Katy Perry’s success with her songs (despite having released more albums than her). Her name?
Lady Gaga, of course!
Well, if you’re thinking it was unnecessary for me to mention her name, well, I felt like I needed to, in case you had already forgotten she exists (like the rest of the world already has).
Enjoy Katy Perry’s new video!
And remember: tickets for her PRISMATIC TOUR are on sale!
Speaking of tickets, we already have our tickets to Miley Cyrus show in our hands!
And while we are on the subject of tours, guess what? That sad and desperate popstar announced her Australian dates for the ARTFLOP Ball tour this week.
Australia is one of the only places her previous tour (the Flop This Way Ball) wasn’t a complete commercial failure. But the big question is: how will tickets sell?!
Let’s take a look at some important facts:
Lady Gaga’s latest studio album, the one supporting her new tour, was a complete and utter failure in Australia.
The album supporting Gaga’s tour is currently on the iTunes chart, sitting at number 75 (it never reached #1 there). However, on the official Australian Album charts (ARIA), ARTFLOP doesn’t even rank among the toil 50. In case you were wondering, Katy Perry’s PRISM is still in the Australian charts. ARTFLOP is the one that’s been out for quite some time now.
In fact, ARTPOP has performed so poorly in Australia that it appears Lady Gaga has cancelled her Australian promo tour!
She announced a visit to Australia to January, a competition for her fans to meet her was also held (similar to what she did with Japan). Winners were announced - but where is Lady Gaga? It’s almost March now!
It seems these poor fans will only get to meet her once her official tour gets there. Bye-bye promo tour!
Gaga surely loves her fans, but she loves her bank account even more. That’s why she decided to cancel a visit to the country(they’re not buying her music, after all). Maybe in the future, if Aussie fans buy tickets to her concert, she’ll go down under. But by then, they might be in jail for vandalism. Who knows?
At least Lady Gaga announced that the prices for her new tour will be more affordable! Oh, wait…
So tell me, how well do you think her tour will go this time around?
If Australians didn’t buy her album for $9.99, what made them think they will pay around $170.00 for a ticket to see her stumble around and vomit on stage while her vocals keep coming out? The most surprising thing for me is how much her Meet ‘N Greet costs. Something that was FREE in the last tour is now $1500!
In comparison, Miley Cyrus Meet N’ Greet costs $900. Rihanna’s was $800. Justin Beiber’s was $500. All of them have been much more successful than Lady Gaga with their latest musical releases.
By the way, she has only four dates (so far) for her Australian shows. They are:
Wed 20 Aug - Perth Arena, WA
Sat 23 Aug - Rod Laver Arena, VIC
Tue 26 Aug - Brisbane Entertainment Centre, QLD
Sat 30 Aug - Allphones Arena, NSW
Do you think she’ll be able to add other 10 shows (she played 14 concerts there the previous time)?
Canceling promo tours, scheduling less shows, exploiting fans with expensive “meet n’ greet” tickets… You know your career is in big trouble when a market you previously flourished in no longer supports you.
Australia broke Lady Gaga’s first number 1 single, and now she can’t even top those same charts.
Le Figaro, one of the most respected and well-known newspapers in France also talked about Lady Gaga’s severe decline, her concert tour downgrade, and the artFLOP failure:
[thanks Amanda for the submission]
Under the title "From the Stade de France to the Zenith,” the article exposes the decline of Lady Gaga’s fame and popularity, having played to 70,000 people two years ago at France’s biggest stadium, to booking only two nights at a small arena this year (the Zenith’s maximum capacity is 6,000 people). The article says:
Have Lady Gaga’s delusions of grandeur stopped? The American diva’s tour artrave will come to the Zenith in Paris on October 30 and 31. A venue that can accommodate about 6’000 people. Two years ago, she gathered 70,617 spectators at the Stade de France, the largest space dedicated to such events in France. A disappointment that generates several questions about the popularity of the artist.
In the career of international stars like Lady Gaga, their first visit to France usually happen in venues the size of Zenith Paris and the Palais Omnisport de Bercy (17,000 seats), then, they move on the Saint-Denis complex. The logic is that the musicians who have tasted the Dionysian arenas are then taken to perform in bigger stages, as is the case of Eminem and Bruce Springsteen. But rather than climb up these steps one by one, the Poker Face singer is tumbling down the stairs.
Live Nation, the tour promoter, has surely seen its ambitions down the toilet after the commercial failure of the ARTPOP album, released on November 11. The record label accumulated a loss of US $25 million in a promotional campaign too expensive for the album’s poor sales: the record has sold 1.5 million copies, against 8,000,000 for the previous, “Born This Way.” A decline of public interest that goes along the little critical acclaim its artistic content has received.
Bercy also too ambitious
Choosing to perform at the Zenith can be seen as a strategic move by the tour promoters. Instead of having the Stade de France half empty (like it happened to Prince and Paul McCartney), it’s better to sell out the Zenith twice, leaving some fans outside, unable to buy tickets. In terms of public image, this avoids any damage. Lady Gaga can always argue that she chose to play in small arenas to be closer to her fans. In financial terms, the maneuver is, however, not as profitable. Despite the decrease in revenues from the ticket sales, she still needs to pay off the logistical expenses, the overhead resulting from spending two days in the same city as an artist.
If “Mother Monster” continues to see her downgrade at this rate, what can we expect for her next tour? Lady Gaga may have to consider a benefit acoustic concert in small rooms like the Bataclan or the Trianon. Disturbing.
At least her little monsters can learn something from this experience: do not bite more than you can chew, kids!
The lack of interest in Lady Gaga can also be felt in the USA (where she cannot sell out concerts either).
Last night, the queen of flops made an appearance on the Jimmy Fallon show (which was well publicized before hand). That was her first TV appearance in 2014. One would think she would have caused a frantic reaction in the media (especially on Twitter, since she has over 40 million followers).
Oh, well, that did not happen! Instead, Will Smith’s appearance (on the same show) became a worldwide Twitter trend [click to enlarge]:
Do I smell another flop?
Lady Gaga will be back on Jimmy Fallon tonight to perform her latest single, G.U.Y. (you know you’re seriously desperate when you need to make two consecutive appearances on the same show). So make sure you do not watch it tonight. Change the channel to any other station - do not torture yourselves, folks!
Anyway, the desperate singer has already filmed the video for her next flop and everything. Looks “great.” Very “artistic.” I’m sure little monsters will love it. Take a look:
I heard Lady Gaga chose to film the video at the Hearst Castle, because the it is supposed to be a continuation to “Telephone.” The architecture is said to be similar. Too bad neither I, nor the rest of the world is interested anymore.
But let’s look at the bright side, so few people bought her album #artFLOP, barely anyone has heard how bad this G.U.Y song is. She still has a chance of making it a hit! Get ready for half a dozen TV performances on American TV. Any bets?
Flappy Bird is a mobile game developed by a guy named Dong Nguyen. The game is very simple: you tap on the screen of your mobile to flap the wings of a pixelated bird to avoid hitting the ground, or the pipes that come along the way. It sounds easy, but it’s very challenging.
It’s become a sensation over the past few weeks, culminating with the game’s creator’s decision to remove the game from app stores around the world. Some say he didn’t like the attention/success, but I smell publicity stunt and big money rolling in.
Anyways… the game was removed from the iTunes app store this week, but several online formats have already surfaced the web. My favorite?
This one here, made by some Brazilian guy, where you can flap Lady Gaga’s tiny little wings as she avoids hitting the biggest obstacle of her career: Madonna.
I just think he should have named it FLOPPY GAGA (hence why I created the image above). Instead, he calls it “Flappy Gaganás" - that being a play word with "satanás” (Portuguese for satan) - LOL!
The instructions are in Portuguese, but all you have to do is click on the screen (with your mouse or trackpad) to start the game and flap the animal's wings. When you fail, move your cursor and click on top of Gaganás (Gaga’s head), and it will restart the game.
Oh, the irony! Who would have thought that such a silly game would be an accurate description of Lady Gaga’s failed attempts at surpassing Madonna’s ever successful presence in the world of pop music?
Have fun kids!
Meanwhile, Madonna shows up to the opening of her Hard Candy Fitness Toronto looking radiant and energetic.
In this video, you can see the Queen of Pop (55) dancing her ass off with an injured foot at the opening of her gym.
Do you think Lady Gaga can do the same at 27?
Oh! Who am I kidding?
Lady Gaga would be riding a golden wheelchair and writing op-eds to some magazine, telling a deeply sad story about her injury, about how depressed she has been, how the love of her fans mean so much, how she gained weight because of the injury, and how the tedious process of healing herself gave her the opportunity to write incredible artistic songs for her new album.
All we know is that Britney Spears fans are not thinking it through. If her song with Gaga (remember her?) flops (like all of Gaga’s recent singles and collaborations), Gaga will blame Britney for her failure - the same way she’s now blaming her entire team for a disastrous 2013.
Speaking of Lady Gaga, her fans (the “little monsters”) are now attacking Miley Cyrus, accusing her of copying Madonna.
Oh, the irony!
Little monsters are so stupid, they don’t even notice they admit Lady Gaga copies Madonna when they do so.
There’s a reason we call them little morons.
Miley looks gorgeous! G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S —- something Lady Gaga never gets to be (even after massive amounts of make-up and photoshop). She can totally pull off that Hollywood Golden Era look (as well as Madonna can), and still be Miley - adding her spunk to the imagery.
And that is another thing Lady Gaga is an Über failure: she copies people’s imagery, but she doesn’t add anything to it: she has nothing to offer as an artist, or human being.
That must be the reason why Lady Gaga fans are hating Miley Cyrus’s guts.
That, and the fact that Miley Cyrus has been stating the obvious about mother moron around. Miley pointed out that Cindy Sherman’s #276 was Lady Gaga’s inspiration, little monsters sent her hate messages and threats for it.
The same Cindy Sherman had an exhibition at the MoMA in 1997 supported by whom?
The Queen of Pop herself!
It all comes down to M - at one point or another.
What was so cool about this Madonna and Miley collaboration?
They both seemed to be having fun - genuinely.
Plus, I loved it how Madonna chose not to have a big diva entrance (which she could have demanded if she wanted to). Instead, she starts her participation from the crowd, as someone who sat quietly, as an observer, until she decides to join the party.
I also love it how Madonna put herself out there with little rehearsal time (we know how she’s a rehearsal freak). The result was a fun, semi-improvised performance (mostly because of Miley). And the mash-up worked really well. I wish I could buy it on iTunes.
Tonight, MTV will air their Miley Cyrus Unplugged special. And what is truly special about this is that the Queen of Pop herself will make an appearance and duet with Miley.
Rumor has it that they both sang a mash-up of Madonna’s 2000 hit Don’t Tell Me and Miley Cyrus’s hit We Can’t Stop.
So don’t you ever tell them to stop. They just can’t. Get ready to stick your tongues out tonight!
Madonna became the most talked-about celebrity on Twitter last Sunday night because of her Grammy performance.
The singer joined Macklemore and Ryan Lewis on stage to sing a few lines of her classic hit Open Your Heart (mashed-up with the duo’s Same Love), while Queen Latifah officialized the marriage of 33 (gay and straight) couples.
Even before this (now) historic performance, Madonna was already the top trending topic on twitter:
That’s the power of Madonna. A walk down the red carpet causes a media frenzy - whether you like it or not. And she doesn’t even need to come inside an egg, or riding a fake horse, or wearing a meat (or swan) dress.
Madonna also announced that she will attend the Amnesty International - Bringing Human Rights Home concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on February 5th to introduce the Pussy Riot’s performance.
You can get tickets for the event by clicking here.
Madonna’s manager (now U2’s manager as well) ranked at #38 on Billboard Power 100 list this year.
He told the magazine that Madonna is preparing a return to the studio for the follow-up to 2012’s MDNA and added: "She’s eager to get started. We have a lot of great ideas and plans for the future. I’m excited for us to get started soon.”
Fuck yeah, motherfuckers!
In the meantime, Lady Gaga is crying in a corner because she has been ignored by everybody in the music business:
She must be thinking to herself:
Well, not everything is bad for Gaga, at least R. kelly and Christina Aguilera have their schedule opened to record a song with her…
Lady Gaga’s artSCAM artFLOP Ball European dates have just been announced - and they are the confirmation that Gaga is a has-been.
The venues she will be playing in Europe are mostly arenas and theaters - and not stadiums. I guess her management decided to book smaller venues straight up, instead of having to downgrade them in the near future (which happened the last time she was touring there). There are also the single dates, as opposed to double nights in different cities. Take Paris for example:
With the Flop This Way Ball, Gaga played the Stade de France for an estimated crowd of 70,617 people. Rent might be too high for a big-ass stadium like that. One would think that 70,617 people in the audience covered her overhead. But, nope! Not when your tickets only move when you offer a 70% discount on Groupon.
Still in France, back in 2011, Gaga’s show in Nice had been originally scheduled to happen at the Charles-Ehrmann stadium (the same one Madonna had played for 30,000 people a month before). However, due to extremely low ticket sales, Gaga had to transfer her concert to the 9,000-seat theater, Palais Nikaïa, instead.
This time, Gaga’s been scheduled to play at the Zenith, in Paris, with the capacity for 6,293 people. Talk about a downgrade! I hope her stage isn’t very large. You don’t want it to take over the few seats available for the audience.
Same is happening in Dublin, where Gaga’s 2014 concert will happen at a venue with a maximum capacity of less than half of the venue she played there the last time.
In London, Gaga played two nights at the Twickenham Stadium the last time - with capacity for over 82,000 people (she got an average 51,000 people a night with her last tour). This time, so far, she has only one show schedule in London, at the O2 Arena, for maximum capacity of 20,000. Another massive downgrade.
Add to that the fact that her tickets aren’t selling fast enough in North America - where they went on sale on December 9th, 2013! Take Katy Perry, for example: her North American tour dates went on sale a week ago (on January 21), and they moved so fast, that she has already added several new dates around the country (playing more than one night in several cities). Who needs a Grammy when the recognition for your work is seen in the demand for your concert tickets?
Desperate to regain a long lost popularity, Lady Gaga decided to support Justin Bieber's drink-and-drive antics expecting his fans would, in return, support her back.
Lady Gaga got dissed by some of her own fans! It’s a cruel world: no hit singles - no blind followers. No wonder she is taking such desperate measures to regain support from other fan-bases.
"How can I support someone who was driving after drinking and doing drugs, and could have killed an innocent person?" said one fan.
"None of us should support them if we don’t want to. I personally think that for someone that have put other people’s lives in risk by driving drunk, less than one day in prison is not enough (…) you should pay like any other person for your mistakes" said another.
In case you could not see the letter well enough, here’s what Gaga says:
Hey monsters, I know everyone is taking (sic) about Justin’s arrest and all sorts of words and judgements are happening on the Internet. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and to stand up for themselves, but I think we should be supportive of Beilebers. They deserve, just like any other fan, to feel strong support for each other and Justin so they can continue to share the bond they have through music. We may not understand everything celebrities do because there’s only so much we see, but Justin and Beliebers were ‘born this way’ too. Let’s spread love and compassion to Beliebers today. That is what we are all about. Can you trend #MonstersSupportBeliebers ?
How desperate and exploitive can this girl be?
Lady Gaga is nothing but a fixture of ridicule in this day and age.
And worse: she’s wrong. She is dead wrong (and she knows it). But I guess she doesn’t care:
Lady Gaga will do anything to gain support (from anyone), and that includes supporting criminal activity, and excusing celebrities for breaking the law.
“Everyone is entitled to their own opinion” - yes, Lady Gaga is right. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. And my opinion is that she is a fucking moron.
I also think she needs to learn the difference between an opinion and a fact (she and her fans have that in common): Justin Bieber broke the law - that’s not an opinion, that’s a fact. And here are some more facts:
Bieber was driving with an expired license, which is against the law (not an opinion). He admitted he was smoking marijuana, taking prescription medication and drinking (at 19). All these activities were unlawful in his case. He was driving 55-60 MPH on a 30 MPH residential street (which is also against the law, not against someone’s opinion). He also resisted arrest and was uncooperative with the police officers — but Gaga thinks he needs to be supported unconditionally because he was “born this way” too.
But she didn’t stop there! Exploiting someone else’s (unwanted) media attention for her self-quotations was not the lowest and most desperate moment of her letter. It was when she excused and suggested that a celebrity (like Justin Bieber) who, in one night alone, committed several offenses, should not be judged because we don’t see the whole picture:
"We may not understand everything celebrities do because there’s only so much we see" she said.
Lady Gaga, please, do yourself (and ourselves) a favor: FUCK OFF!
You are a whiny, desperate, ignorant, untalented, coke whore, who thinks celebrities are above the law and deserve special treatment because you’re famous.
What is even more sickening about this, is that Lady Gaga thinks that Beliebers are stupid (oh, well…). Her concert ticket sales are at the lowest since she first came out onto the music scene. She is in desperate need of people to buy tickets for the artFLOP Ball and fill up the empty arenas she’ll be playing in very soon.
She’s already jumped on the OneDirection bandwagon, then ditched them like used toilet paper when attaching herself to them didn’t increase artFLOP's sales or help Applause become a hit. Now she’s trying to use Bieber fans for her own gain again - thinking they are stupid enough to not see her game.
Lady Gaga is having a hard time selling tickets for her comeback tour, artSCAM: The artFLOP Ball. Gaga’s tour tickets went on sale last year (sales started on December 9th), but so far, her tour has stalled at 29 dates in North America (with only five being reported “sold out”).
On the other hand, it was only last week (on January 15th) that Katy Perry announced her 46-city dates in North American with her PRISMATIC TOUR. Ticket pre-sale for Katy’s shows started only two days ago (on January 21st), and how are they doing?
Katy Perry’s tickets are moving so fast, that they have already added second shows to many cities (something Lady Gaga could not do in over a month and a half), totalizing 55 shows in North America:
I wonder what excuse Lady Gaga’s team will give now that her comeback tour is doing even worse than the last time around (when she had to announce a hip injury to be able to cancel the remaining 22 shows - which had only 50% of the tickets sold).
Last year, Katy Perry not only prevented Lady Gaga from reaching the top of the charts with Roar, but even her promotional single, Dark Horse, is more successful than the singles off of Gaga’s terrible album, artFLOP.
In fact, “Dark Horse” performed so well on the radio (despite being just a promo single), that Katy’s team decided to make it into an official single now.
[Seating chart at the 2014 Grammy’s]
Rumor has it that MADONNA will be a surprise performer at the Grammy’s this Sunday. Some people say she’ll perform with Beyonce, other say Nicki Minaj. My guess is Katy Perry. Why?
Katy Perry has united Madonna on her ART FOR FREEDOM project this month - where she (Katy) is January’s curator. I would think Katy Perry would have asked Madonna to perform with her at the Grammy’s in exchange of favors, but who knows?
All I know is that if they perform Katy Perry’s DARK HORSE together, the performance would go viral, rocketing the song (which already is #2 on Billboard’s Hot 100) to the top of the chart.
As for Lady Gaga, the poor thing:
Gaga is probably enlisting the services of her dearest friends and collaborators, accused pedophiles Terry Richardson and R. Kelly to help fill the empty arenas she’ll be playing soon:
RIP Lady Gaga.
Delusional singer, formerly successful popstar Lady Gaga sent a birthday message to artist Jeff Koons on Twitter. But, as usual, it seems she was having another one of her
"The ARTPOP sculpture u made began a youth artistic renaissance."
She said that the sculpture Jeff Koons made of her “began a youth artistic renaissance."
I wonder if by “youth artistic renaissance” she means her own fans vandalized and defaced Jeff Koons’ sculpture she talks about at her own album release party a few months ago:
"Get clean. Write better lyrics! Spend time alone! Come back with something better. Be happy!" wrote one of her fans on the statue Jeff Koons made for her.
"Youth renaissance" says Lady Gaga.
[I advise Gaga’s little MORONS to look up the word “deface” to understand this joke. Pun intended.]
Not only the ugly Lady Gaga sculpture was vandalized by Gaga fans at the artFLOP album release party, but other sculptures by Jeff Koons (unrelated to Gaga) were too:
Let me remind you again, Lady Gaga calls it “youth renaissance.” Jeff Koons must have been thrilled! Once again, Lady Gaga proves herself to be an ignorant, idiotic, moron. Mother Moron, yes, indeed.
That delusional and self-absorbed formerly successful popstar gave us another proof of her delusions of grandeur this week:
Miley Cyrus revealed the promo image for her MTV Unplugged. In the picture, she has fake, ugly teeth on. Lady Gaga, then, assumed Miley was copying her (as she would). So she reacted by tweeting an image of the cover of one of the failed promo singles off of artFLOP with the saying: "Pop culture is my bitch."
I guess this makes Gaga Britney’s bitch then…
And just because she couldn’t help it, she added "Start the Revolution" to another tweet.
Lady Gaga doesn’t even try to hide that she’s a Madonna-wannabe anymore.
Remember: Katy Perry is this month’s curator on Madonna’s Art For Freedom / Revolution of Love project. Some people say that Madonna will be performing with Katy Perry at the Grammy’s this weekend. We’ll have to wait and see…
Speaking of being a Madonna-wannabe:
1983: Madonna shot by friend (and former roommate), artist Martin Burgoyne for “Burning Up.”
2013: Lady Garbage, I mean, Gaga at the VMAs.
There. I said it too.
Let me just get this straight:
Madonna is now being called a racist because she used the term #disnigga in a positive context. Nigga - the same word that most rappers use in their songs today. But when Lady Gaga posed with two white guys in blackface -while holding them by chains - no one had a problem with it?
Okay. Got it. Another day, another reason to crucify Madonna and give Lady Gaga a free pass.
FYI: English language is not dead.
Any word in a language that is in current use (unlike Latin) is malleable. Language is constantly evolving, changing. The meaning of words change over time. It also changes from context to context. Contextualization and intentionality are everything (rather than the words themselves). This is NOT AN OPINION, this is a scientific fact. Sociolinguistics, folks! Linguistics is a science, you know that, right?
People who got offended by the term #disnigga in that context, or in this post, go find something better to do with your miserable lives!
It’s not like Madonna used the real N-word (the one that ends with -er). She used the one that has been socially acceptable in certain contexts for the last 20 years or so (“nigga”). Every time you go out, you hear people / friends talking among themselves and to each other using expressions like “nigga, please!” (even if none of them are African-American). So nigga, please!
Having said that, I must confess that Madonna’s posts on Instagram sometimes embarrass me as much as a teenager feels embarrassed by her mom’s Facebook status updates.
Madonna can find the cure for cancer, and there still will be people in the media vilifying her for it. They’ve been after her on a witch-hunt for 30 years - but this woman still hasn’t learnt? I am embarrassed by her naiveté. First the picture of her son holding booze, then this? And now an apology? What is she apologizing for? Other people’s ignorance, and racial hang-ups?
Madonna is definitely living in a bubble. We know, she doesn’t read magazines and shit… but I think she should. She needs a wake-up call. The day she learns the way the media always tries to portray her, she will stop putting herself in these situations. #disnigga here loves Madonna, but woman, wise up!
According to the Daily Mail, Madonna is working on a new album and she enlisted Adele to cowrite a few songs with her, with the promise that she would write a song for Adele’s next album in exchange.
Of course, the ever-hating press always finds a way to try to diminish Madonna’s talent as a songwriter - and add their customary ageist remarks as well. So this rumor has been reported along the lines: "Madonna is hanging up her pointy bras and fishnets as she swaps dance music for a ‘grown up’ album of ballads - thanks to Adele."
Thanks to Adele?
Excuse me, but Madonna wrote classic ballads like Live To Tell, Promise To Try, Oh Father way before Adele was even born. And nope, they’re not ballads about being heartbroken because a boyfriend had broken up with her. So let’s think about this “grown up” theme again…
No hate to Adele (I am sure these two could come up with great ballads), but a) the way this rumor has been reported is ridiculous; and b) I don’t believe for a second that this collaboration is happening.
People reporting this rumor seem to have forgotten that Madonna released a compilation of ballads in 1995 (Something to Remember), which included a few new tracks as well.
After watching a few videos we selected below, I don’t think anyone with half a brain would ever suggest Madonna needs the help of Adele to write a ballad:
Who can ignore the timeless ballad Rain?
So, does Madonna need Adele to write “grown up” ballads?
Nope! She doesn’t. Thank you very much.
Other ballads that need to be mentioned are Frozen, Easy Ride, X-Static Process, and even I Want You. The latter was not written by Madonna, but it was completely reinvented by her and Massive Attack, who transformed this disco funk anthem recorded by Marvin Gaye into a haunting ballad.
