Lady Gaga's fragrance commercial reveals the formula to Fame

On the heels of her racy perfume poster ad release, Lady Gaga tweeted a short film today about the making of the fragrance. Like the promo photo for Fame, the black-and-white short features half-naked men, but it is more elegant perhaps than its print counterpart. (That’s not meant as a commentary on her not appearing in the video.)

Titled ”Formulation,” the French-language short opens in the Haus Laboratories in Paris, before revealing the production of the “first ever black Eau de Parfum” — A.K.A. hot men filling beakers with exotic ingredients like ”tears of belladonna,” and ”crushed heart of tiger orchidea.”

Both the perfume and her next album’s title will be released in September.

Lady Gaga wears mini-men in new perfume ad

Lady Gaga has managed to out-do herself with a perfume ad that makes even her latex outfits seem demure.

The pop star tweeted the ad for her Fame fragrance yesterday, which features tiny men scaling her nude body as she dons nothing more than a mask and the sleek perfume bottle. The photograph, shot by fashion photographer Steven Klein, is accompanied by the tagline ”The First Ever Black Eau de Parfum.”

”i won’t lie I’m a bit nervous. its been a while since i’ve shared some work with you. But i’m so proud of Steven+I, we really did not sleep!” she tweeted before revealing the black-and-white image. READ FULL STORY

Taylor Swift tops Forbes' 'Highest-Paid Celebs Under 30' list

Want to feel like an underachiever?

Forbes magazine has released its annual list of the richest entertainers under 30. And it’s no surprise that Taylor Swift wins something yet again, raking in over $57 million from May 2011 to May 2012. The 22-year-old had the Speak Now world tour during that time, which Forbes said brought in a cool $1 million a night.

Last year’s $90 million Monster winner Lady Gaga came in fourth this year, earning $52 million. Forbes attributes the drop to the fact that she didn’t tour during the time frame, and notes that she’s currently selling out shows in Eastern Europe and they expect a jump next year. (Although, $52 million is not exactly a failure.) READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga hits 25 million Twitter followers

There are few things more satisfying than being the very best in the world at something. And in the go-go modern age, it’s possible to become the world champion of something that didn’t even exist a few years ago. (I’m convinced that the vast majority of iPad games were built by people who just wanted to enter their initials in their games’ Global Ten List.) Today, Lady Gaga reaffirmed her status as the World’s Most Followed Tweeter by crossing the 25 million threshold. That’s about 2.5 million more than her closest competitor, Canadian superteen and greaser Boyfriend Justin Bieber.

“#25milliontweetymonsters‬ wow! I’m officially feeling like the luckiest girl in the world today. Last sold out show in Singapore in 2 hrs!” tweeted the world’s most popular drama geek. In no time at all, the pop star was refocused on her usual blend of observational comedy. “Can you believe that freakin bird is still outside my room whistling! I feel like he’s auditioning,” tweeted Gaga. Just to provide some context, 2 million people watched Mad Men on Sunday, 20 million people watched the American Idol finale, and 25 million people know that there is a bird chirping outside of Lady Gaga’s Singapore hotel room.

Jennifer Lopez unseats Lady Gaga on the Forbes Celebrity 100

According to the just-released Forbes 2012 Celebrity 100 List, Jenny from the Block is back. She handily defeated Lady Gaga, last year’s No. 1, as well as Oprah Winfrey (No. 2), Britney Spears (No. 6), and Steven Spielberg (No. 10). Lopez’s resurgence can be credited to her gig as a judge on American Idol, as well as her Kohl’s clothing line, her top-selling fragrances, her endorsement deals with L’Oreal and Gillette, and the two movies she has coming out this year.

Lady Gaga tells Oprah she wants a 'soccer team' of kids

The ladies of one-name names, Gaga and Oprah, sat down for an episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter last night to plumb the depths of the pop star’s mind. In a surprisingly demure (yet still Gaga-esque) red trench-coat dress, Gaga opened up on several topics, including her desire for her own Little Monsters, how she deals (or doesn’t) with the media, and the one thing that scares her. Check out highlights of the interview below, with a video after the jump:

On starting a family:
“I want kids. I want a soccer team. I want a husband. I don’t want to have one kid, I want to have a few. I want to experience that.” READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga's 'New Year's Rockin' Eve' performance: Watch it here!

New Yorker Lady Gaga had a dream come true performing in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. She began her medley of “Heavy Metal Lover,” “Marry the Night,” and “Born This Way” in a costume that I would describe as “black sequin Jabba the Hut.” What’s your best guess? (I’ve seen Pac-Man ghost on Twitter, which was my second thought.)

She soon enough stripped down to a relatively normal ensemble: a black sequin bodysuit and Catwoman mask with some kind of large wire globe structure around her head. We said “relatively normal.” Watch the performance below. Gaga later helped Mayor Bloomberg push the button to drop the ball after changing into an equally accessible Versace number. READ FULL STORY

GAGA-BARNEYS

Gaga’s Workshop at Barneys New York opened at midnight last night, and the store was still buzzing this afternoon as fans from all walks of life — teens with their parents, businessmen in three-piece suits, and even a few sexagenarians — checked out Lady Gaga’s latest enterprise, a Christmas display in the iconic store’s Upper East Side flagship.

Lady Gaga makes Bill Clinton blush: on the scene at the Clinton concert

While Lady Gaga didn’t quite go as far as taking the stage in a stained blue dress while smoking a cigar, she did let the sexual energy fly former President Bill Clinton’s way when she performed for him Sunday night at the star-studded “A Decade of Difference: A Concert Celebrating 10 Years of the William J. Clinton Foundation” at the Hollywood Bowl, making the former president blush while wife Hillary Clinton and daughter Chelsea laughed on.

“Bill, I’m having my first real Marilyn moment,” Gaga said to Clinton, referring to when Marilyn Monroe sang “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy. “I always wanted to have one and I was hoping that it didn’t involve an accident with some pills and a strand of pearls, but here we are.” A visibly embarrassed but obviously amused Clinton looked to his wife on his right then to his beaming daughter on his left (a big Gaga fan, we hear), who were both smiling and laughing as Clinton’s face turned red. “Tonight, I’m on the edge with you,” Gaga said to Clinton before launching into “The Edge of Glory.”

Gaga (whom Ellen Degeneres introduced by saying, “This next performer needs no introduction” and then literally walked off the stage with no further introduction) made the Clintons squirm further in their box seats down front when she turned her hit “Bad Romance” into “Bill Romance.” READ FULL STORY
