Lady Gaga called a 'slut'... for smoking pot?


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

Lady Gaga talks bulimia, launches new foundation project: A Body Revolution

Lady Gaga was born this way – and now she’s stepping up the acceptance with a new project, A Body Revolution.

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

Lady Gaga smokes a joint onstage. This is not the most scandalous thing she's done this month


Even monsters get the munchies.

Or, at least, we can assume Lady Gaga did after taking a hit of a joint that a fan passed her onstage in Amsterdam yesterday.

“Oh, it’s real,” she said in video that caught the exchange, and then, after taking a few puffs, “And for those of you who are wondering if I’m high right now, I am not. That is not nearly enough to get me high.”

Legally smoking some marijuana? So not controversial. Here are a few things just off the top of my head, just of things I’ve read in the past month, that Gaga has partaken in that make me much more likely to clutch my pearls (or, more accurately, to text my friends with a poker sad face and a WHYYYY).

1.) This tweet:@therealXtina (Christina Aguilera) just bought your new single. Seems the old Christina i loved has returned! Congratulations!! :)” Compliment or the most passive-aggressive tweet of all time? You decide. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga's perfume ad is just as weird as you'd expect -- VIDEO

Only Lady Gaga could get away with releasing a 30-second “trailer” for an advertisement… followed, one month later, by the full ad, which clocks in at an astonishing five minutes and 30 seconds. That’s 22 seconds longer than her “Bad Romance” video, though not nearly as lengthy as her epic “Telephone” mini-movie.

Anyway: The commercial — er, short film — starts with a title card that simply reads “WARNING” in bright red letters. After that, screaming and Phantom of the Opera-style organ chords lead us into a shot of a giant, golden Gaga statue, which lays in repose before an army of mostly naked dudes.

After that, things sort of go off the rails.

But why read a description of Gaga’s latest foray into video when you could just watch the darn thing yourself? Have at it, little monsters:

After PETA flap, Gaga asks fans to accept her in fur


Avert your eyes, vegan Little Monsters: Your mother has spoken, and she’s unapologetic about her taste for Cruella costumes.

Background — PETA slammed Gaga this week for being photographed in fluffy animal pelts, apparently defying a statement she made in 2009 (“I hate fur and I don’t wear fur”). The pop star fired back with a laconic, airy statement: “For those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real, please don’t forget to credit the designer HERMES. Thank You! LOVE, gaga.”

Animal-loving fans were disappointed by what they perceived as a brush-off. So Gaga turned to her website again yesterday, posting a longer, more serious response to what she’s calling “Furgate.” Here it is in full:


Lady Gaga is a swamp monster in new perfume ad: VIDEO

So normally, when celebrities release a fragrance, the ad is aspirational. Gaga went in the opposite direction for the commercial for Fame, her first perfume. Gaga herself tweeted the ad out this morning, “THE OFFICIAL TRAILER “FAME” THE FRAGRANCE DIRECTED BY: STEVEN KLEIN.”

This follows a previous trailer that did not feature Gaga, and a print ad that showcased men climbing all over the naked singer. If you needed to see more of the later, you’re in luck.  This commercial features tiny men crawling all over her once again (Are we suppose to assume this is the height of Fame?), as well as a futuristic fashion show and plenty of some kind of black goo that is clearly not the fragrance coming out of her mouth… it’s all coming alive like a monster!

I see what she did there.

Furry Vengeance: PETA calls Lady Gaga a 'turncoat'

PETA vice president Dan Mathews thinks Lady Gaga is a monster — and not the good, Gaga-approved kind.

For years, the animal rights watchdog group has been firmly in Gaga’s corner. It applauded the pop star in 2009 for wearing a coat made out of Kermit the Frog carcasses rather than real animals, proudly citing her rationale for the outfit: “I really loved this one in particular because I thought it was commentary on not wearing fur, ’cause I hate fur and I don’t wear fur,” she said.

But lately, Gaga’s been photographed wearing apparel that looks suspiciously like dead animals — both on the street and in a poster for Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming Machete Kills. And naturally, her old boosters aren’t too stoked about this development. As Mathews writes, in typically understated PETA fashion:

What happened? Are your stylists telling you that it’s fake, or are you a turncoat?  READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga looks perfectly ordinary on the cover of 'Vogue', no one claimed -- PHOTO

As Tim Gunn would say: That’s a lot of look.

Lady Gaga tweeted out her September Vogue cover late Wednesday night, and as one might expect, there is quite a bit going on from the woman who regularly refers to herself as a monster.

Gaga may sing about her own “Hair,” but for Vogue, she went with a teased-out RuPaul-inspired weave. She dons a Marc Jacobs fishtail gown for her return engagement as cover star.

In another image released from the shoot, Gaga answers the question of what, exactly, is appropriate to wear along with a gigantic ostrich and marabou hat designed by Stephen Jones: absolutely nothing. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga announces new album title. It's...

Get your hotpants (or meat dress!) ready — Lady Gaga has announced that her upcoming third album will be called ARTPOP.  “Make sure when writing about my new album/project ARTPOP that you CAPITALIZE the title, *its all in the details*” the singer tweeted.

Message received, Gaga. ARTPOP doesn’t yet have a release date, though presumably the album will drop sometime in 2013. The singer/provocateur tweeted the news yesterday, following up an earlier twitpic of the word “artpop” tattooed on her arm.

Judging an album by its title falls squarely into the “don’t judge a book by its cover” camp, but I can’t help but have more than a few thoughts on the one word. For one thing, it obviously calls to mind Andy Warhol’s famous pop art, and many of Gaga’s outfits seem incredibly Warhol-inspired. I also wonder if the title has anything to do with the LittleMonsters.com collaborative artwork she’s been pushing recently. READ FULL STORY
