Alexander McQueen was all set to revolutionize insider-y Fashion Week by broadcasting his spring/summer 2010 runway show live on the web. The fashion blogs were psyched, and so were we. Unfortunately, fashion history was not made, and who should be at fault but Lady Gaga. When the pop star posted to Twitter that her new single, “Bad Romance,” would be debuting at the McQueen show, the streaming website was inundated by thousands of visitors, causing it to crash.
No fashion for the masses this time, kiddies. Maybe next season designers who want to stream their shows live will think about increasing their bandwidth (and no, that doesn’t refer to dress size). [Elle UK] Keep reading »
If Lady Gaga didn’t end up winning over some of her haters last night, after performing on “Saturday Night Live,” then they’re a lost cause. The pop diva absolutely knocked it out of the park, performing both “Paparazzi” and a medley of her songs, including “Poker Face” (in a gyroscope-enabled dress, natch) — showing off not only her ability to put on an entertaining show, but also her singing talent. Madonna showed up to join Gaga in one of my personal favorite regular skits, “Deep House Dish,” which came off a little awkward, but still was a nice little endorsement from the Queen of Pop. Clip of that, after the jump. Keep reading »
Live Nation has confirmed rumors that the Lady Gaga-Kanye West tour, “Fame Kills,” has been officially canceled. Gossip blog MediaTakeOut is reporting the decision was all Gaga — a probable fall-out from Kanye’s much-publicized VMA meltdown (though she was defending him as recently as a couple days ago). I’m not so sure, though — I can think of 10 other reasons these two would cancel a concert together… Keep reading »
Let’s talk about how mother-effing excited I am for this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live.” Yes, last week’s season premiere totally blew, but tomorrow night, Mr. Scarlett Johansson, aka my second favorite Ryan in Hollywood — Ryan Reynolds
— is hosting, with musical guest, Lady Gaga
. This shiz is gonna be hot. Promo above. Keep reading »
“I was thinking, ‘Oh gosh.’ But, like, I would say he’s a good guy and everybody makes mistakes, and he feels so f**king bad. He really does. I think that everyone can get so caught up in gossip and stuff.” I felt like that moment kind of like really portrayed him in a way that he really isn’t. It was just a random moment.”
— Lady Gaga talks Kanye, with whom she’s about to go on a joint tour, with a Las Vegas radio station. Hmm … if this were an isolated jackass moment from someone who otherwise exhibits classy behavior, I’d be more inclined to believe it “portrayed him in a way that he really isn’t.” [via MTV.com] Keep reading »
“She doesn’t have a penis. She came to my house in her underwear and I saw no hint of a penis. She thought it was appropriate attire. She can get away with it. She knows what she’s doing. She ain’t no fool. She’s brilliant. I think she’s a good role model for girls. She plays with sex and makes it unsexy on purpose – so outrageous it’s approachable.”

In the same New York City dive bar that broke Bob Dylan, here’s Lady Gaga
way back in 2006, performing in—gasp!—normal clothes. Heck, some of the dudes in her backing band look like crunchy granola Phish heads. That ho really has bleached and bedazzled herself to the hilt over the past few years. But this video proves the Lady rocked, even back then, without all the awesome glitter crap.

Lady Gaga is known for not wearing pants, but she seems to have given up on wearing shirts or tops too. Seriously, how does she take the time to put on a studded leather helmet, but doesn’t think a shirt is necessary? Her costumes-worn-as-everyday-clothing shtick is getting a little old. Maybe it’s time for a new gimmick to extend her 15 minutes? [NYC, 9/21/09] Keep reading »
