Girl Talk: I Went To Prom With My Bully

Yesterday, Lady Gaga launched her anti-bullying foundation, Born This Way, at Harvard University. This got me thinking of my own days as a bullied pre-teen—and the sweet revenge I was able to exact on my young male tormenter.

Halfway through sixth grade, I switched schools. I’d been living on Cape Cod with my…

Tracy Morgan Tells Gays To Stop Whining, Said He Would Stab His Son If He Were Gay

Oh my. It sounds like someone needs a spanking from Tina Fey.

A man named Kevin Rogers took to Facebook after a Tracy Morgan standup show in Nashville on June 3 to share the disappointing news that Morgan is an unabashed bigot towards gays. Not like “ha, ha, gay dudes wear product i…

Lady Gaga Explains The Egg, Eats David Letterman’s Notes

Lady Gaga’s much hyped Born This Way drops this week, which has our girl hitting the publicity circuits even harder than usual.

When Did “Glee” Become An After School Special?

I love Lady Gaga and “Born This Way” as much as the next girl, but this preview of “Glee“‘s “Born This Way” episode just reminds me of an after-school special. (Except for the part when Mr. Shue calls Gaga “the queen of self-love,” which just made me think about masturbating.)

Check out…

Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” Cover Is Hideous

Lady Gaga released her “Born This Way” album cover images this weekend and fans are more stunned than when she showed up to the Grammy’s inside a giant egg. Half-motorcycle, half-woman, a red lipstick-ed Gaga snarls out from beneath a mane of blonde hair. I think it’s hideous and slightly scary. Does anyone love it?

Lady Gaga Does “Born This Way” With A Mariachi Band

 

Yesterday was Lady Gaga’s 25th birthday, and she Tweeted in the morning, “I woke up to chicken and waffles in bed, pink tulips, + little monster bday videos. I love you! I was #bornthisday.” Later in the night, her friends threw her a surprise party at a Mexican restaurant. Apparently, Gaga spent…

Katy Perry Covers “Born This Way”

Covering songs is dangerous. You have to pick something obscure enough that a zillion people haven’t already done it, but recognizable enough that the audience will want to sing along. You have to give the song your own spin, while keeping true enough to the original that the song maintains its basic shape. So…

Lady Gaga Invites Talented Tween On Stage For Duet

Even if you’re not a fan of Lady Gaga’s music — and would rather The Frisky didn’t post photos of her in nude catsuits — her appreciation and love for her fans can’t be denied. At her show last night in Toronto, Gaga invited 10-year-old Maria Aragon on stage to duet with her o…

Lady Gaga Debuts Truly Bizarre And Epic Video For “Born This Way”

So. Lady Gaga’s music video for “Born This Way” is out. It is the rather epic — over seven minutes! — story of a government-owned space territory called G.O.A.T. (no idea what that stands for but I’m sure I could take some acid and figure it out), where, like, a super harmonious group of…

Lady Gaga On The “Born This Way” And “Express Yourself” Parallels

Ever since the Grammys, when Lady Gaga debuted “Born This Way” live, people have been commenting on how the track sounds a whole lot like Madonna’s “Express Yourself”—it has a similar spoken-word intro and the same sentiment, not to mention that Gaga’s long ponytail for the performance was very Blonde Ambition. (Nevermind the fact…

Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” Finally Drops

The first single and title track off Lady Gaga’s forthcoming album Born This Way has finally arrived! As expected, the song is a synth-heavy and highly danceable celebration of being yourself. Writes Andy at Popdust: The lyrics spill out a riff on the “It gets better” story pop music titans have been trying to…
