After losing out on the No. 1 spot in 2012, Oprah is once again sitting on top of the Celebrity 100 throne. In my dreams, Oprah is currently lip-synching and dancing along to Yeezy’s “I Am a God” in one of her massive mansions.
Tag: Lady Gaga (21-30 of 122)
As anyone with even a passing familiarity with Glee — or iTunes charts — is aware, the show knows its way around a tribute episode, a.k.a. an episode where all of the music is from one artist or film. A ‘tribute episode’ also typically means there are seven or eight songs in the hour-long dramedy, as opposed to the usual standard of four. Great news for those of us who are watching the show for the karaoke! (I can’t be the only one dancing around my living room to Madonna or Lady Gaga Glee covers, right?)
Last night, Glee added Stevie Wonder to the diverse group of icons the show has celebrated, which got me thinking — where does Wonder fall among the Glee kids’ homages? Below, check out our rankings of the top ten tribute episodes Glee has undertaken in the past four seasons — along with some videos of the best performance from each musical-icon-filled hour.

'Divergent' fun: Which faction would Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence and more celebs be placed in?
Divergent superfans, this one is for you. At the beginning of setting up this dystopian adventure, readers learn that all the people living in this world are sorted into five different factions when they come of age. An aptitude test helps place them, but the final decision is theirs (sounds wonderfully familiar, right?). While Beatrice, Caleb and all the rest had a tough decision to make, we got to thinking about where some Hollywood celebs would find themselves if they suddenly woke up in this world. Here are our best guesses for Jennifer Lawrence (Honest!), Lady Gaga (Brave!) and more.
Abnegation (the Selfless)
Angelina Jolie: Sure, she’s got her detractors, but she’s still one of Hollwood’s most famous do-gooders. The actress has traveled to Cambodia, Sierra Leone and many, many other places to speak and help with her main cause: refugees. She’s even a Goodwill Ambassador who has none other than Hillary Clinton as an admirer. READ FULL STORY
Well, finally, a Hollywood movie that bends over backwards to give big gun supporters a fair shake.
Yes, that’s Sofía Vergara who – as Lady Desdemona, a femme fatale in Machete Kills – straps herself into a weaponized wardrobe that lifts, separates and mows down rivals.
It’s all from the impact-splatter imagination of Robert Rodriguez, the filmmaker who alternates between bloody (Sin City, El Mariachi) and fizzy (four Spy Kids films, The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lava Girl) without aesthetic shift or ethical distress. READ FULL STORY
After a few missteps, Britney Spears is officially back in the running for the title of queen of pop. The songstress is this year’s highest-earning woman in the music industry, according to Forbes.
The pop star earned $58 million between May 2011 and May 2012, thanks to her Femme Fatale platinum album and tour, as well as side endorsements and a fragrance line. READ FULL STORY
Just call it The Adventures of FernGaga.
Lady Gaga is a well-known fan of monsters, but now even plants are getting involved with her army of music and social justice. Botanists at Duke University have honored the pop star by naming a new genus of ferns, and 19 species within the genus, after her, E! reports.
“We wanted to name this genus for Lady Gaga because of her fervent defense of equality and individual expression,” Kathleen Pryer, director of Duke’s herbarium and professor of biology, told E! READ FULL STORY
You’re nobody until millions of fans love you — or until you puke while performing in concert, whichever one comes first.
Pop tart Justin Bieber first blazed the trail by yakking in Glendale, Ariz., which is in no way a comment on the fine people of the Grand Canyon State. Now Lady Gaga — ever the trendsetter — has taken up the barf baton, tossing her cookies during a tour stop in Barcelona. Insert your best Lady Gag Reflex joke here.
Unlike Biebs, Gaga barely missed a beat, continuing to dance sexily as a slowed down “Edge of Glory” played despite the throw-up. Thanks to her prerecorded vocals, the song itself was barely interrupted. The clip, if you can stomach it:
Staten Island borough president James P. Molinaro is not a Lady Gaga fan. The 81-year-old grandfather likely does not have Born This Way cued up on his
iPod 8-track, but his bigger issue with the pop star is the fact that she smoked the pot on stage during a recent show in Amsterdam. So Molinaro, who is promoting a new neighborhood anti-drug program, took her to task for toking, calling her a… slut?
“We have to understand that there’s a tremendous influence with our youth, which I didn’t have as a youth,” said Molinaro, according to the Staten Island Advocate. “And there’s the influence right there. Stop glorifying the drug use. There’s Gaga. Here’s this … this … I would call her a slut. This slut is influencing many, many children.” READ FULL STORY
The singer/activist has been in the news with lots of websites and tabloids making disparaging comments about her apparent weight gain.
As a response to that, Gaga has launched a new section of her Born This Way Foundation, and the site, LittleMonsters.com, dealing specifically with body acceptance.
To kick things off, she posted a few photos of herself in just her bra and underwear (some above), with the captions “bulimia and anorexia since I was 15” “but today I join the body revolution” “to inspire bravery” “and breed some m$therf*cking compassion.”
Above the photos, she writes: READ FULL STORY
