Lady Gaga will stream songs from 'Born This Way' on 'FarmVille'

The 46 million people who play FarmVille every month are getting an eccentric new neighbor. This morning, social gaming company Zynga announced a partnership with Lady Gaga, which will allow users to stream songs from Gaga’s forthcoming Born This Way before the album is released on May 23. Players will visit a neighboring farm, “GagaVille,” where they can undertake lightweight tasks to unlock tracks from Born This Way. It’s not the first time that a musician has partnered with a gaming company — Guns n’ Roses released “Shackler’s Revenge” on Rock Band 2, and Zynga worked with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg on partnerships through their popular Mafia Wars game — but given the near-messianic cult of Gaga and the massive FarmVille user population, it’s certainly a noteworthy moment in the evolution of pop music branding.

Lady Gaga to mentor 'American Idol' Top 4 contestants. Bring the drama!

Expect a surge in the Top 4′s performance level next week: Fox has confirmed to EW that Lady Gaga is set to appear on American Idol as a mentor for our remaining finalists. And before you scoff at the idea of a 25-year-old handing out career advice, remember that Miley Cyrus served as a mentor on the show last year, at the ripe age of 17 years old. And it’s not like Gaga doesn’t have anything to offer — some of our contestants (ahem, Lauren!) still have plenty to learn when it comes to truly performing to a crowd. Who better to teach them than the dramatic artist herself? (If only Pia were still around to pick up a few pointers… )

But it’s interesting to consider how she might aid the contestants, considering next week’s theme. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga confesses to Ellen that sometimes she 'feels like a loser'

An international superstar who has a habit of wearing leather fetish outfits and matching floppy hat brims must be a paragon of confidence, right? Wrong! Even Lady Gaga feels insecure occasionally: “Do I feel like a loser sometimes? Yes, of course I do,” she says today during her appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show. Sounds like someone’s angling to segue into an impromptu performance of “Born This Way.”

We’ll be recapping the episode this afternoon on our Music Mix blog after it airs. In the meantime, get pumped by checking out the promo below. (Here’s hoping we actually do get to see Gaga wearing Ellen-esque jeans and sneakers sooner rather than later.) READ FULL STORY

'Glee' countdown: Learning to love yourself, Gaga Style

Paws up, GleeMonsters! In a special super-sized episode clocking in at 90 gleekin’ minutes, it looks like we’re in for some big diva ‘tude tonight. The McKinley kids take some pointers in self acceptance from two Queens of Self Love, Lady Gaga and Barbra Streisand. Tina and Mercedes (yay for under-utilized main cast members!) are tackling the ultimate love-yourself anthem “Born This Way,” while Rachel and Quinn team up with a sweet “I Feel Pretty”/”Unpretty” mashup, which sounds pretty awesome. Judging from a strategically placed Band-Aid, it looks like Rachel might take the lyrics of the 90′s TLC hit to heart (“You can fix your nose if he says so”) by trying to shave down the schnoz, but she shouldn’t! It’s her best feature, and what would Rachel do without the Babs comparisons?  READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga joins Justin Timberlake on 'Saturday Night Live' season finale. Talk about a must-see!

What do you get when you combine one of Saturday Night Live‘s best hosts with one of Saturday Night Live‘s most interesting musical guests? Why, probably the most anticipated episode of Saturday Night Live in quite some time! Not only is the NBC sketch comedy series blessing us with a Tina Fey hosting stint May 7, but they’re also closing the season with Justin Timberlake — with Lady Gaga as musical guest. That’s right: The singer is set to return to the SNL stage for the first time since performing 2009, but I’m left hoping she’ll also enjoy some comedic airtime during the show.

Because, really, SNL writers, it’s time: We need to see a Lady Gaga-Stefon skit. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga turns 25. What would you give her for her birthday?

Attention friends, monsters, and embryos: Today, on March 28, 2011, Lady Gaga turns 25 years old. First, pause for a second to beat your head against your desks because, why, why am I so old, so poor, and will never be able to pull off the frozen-section-at-Food Emporium look? But back to Gaga. (And ouch, my head!) Since this is Gaga we’re talking about, I’m imagining her birthday consists of a relaxing bath filled with streamers, glitter, and plush animals followed by a screening of 1974′s Zardoz and a massage from Perez Hilton. But maybe that’s just the concussion I suffered a few sentences ago talking. No, she’s probably Just Like Us, sobbing over cake while watching Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and sipping Four Loko. (Just me?) Birthdays are fun!

But her birthday party needs gifts, PopWatchers! So what would you give Lady Gaga for her birthday? READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga wears a 'latex condom-inspired outfit' on 'Good Morning America'

On Sunday, Lady Gaga dressed (bizarrely) for the Grammys, but today, she dressed for aisle 9 at Duane Reade.  In this video from today’s edition of Good Morning America, pop’s current First Lady is clad in one of her wackiest ensembles yet: a flesh-colored, “latex condom-inspired outfit,” topped off with a hat that’s a little Three Musketeers, a little Quaker Oats Man, and a lot crazy. (If only Woody Allen from Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* (*But Were Afraid to Ask) were there to accompany her.)

There is, however, a method to Gaga’s madness, according to the star. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga says she stayed incubated in Grammy 'vessel' for 72 hours

lady-gaga-in-eggImage Credit: Heather Wines/CBSLady Gaga called into KIIS FM’s On Air with Ryan Seacrest today and laid one heckuva revelation on us: She spent 72 hours (yes, that’s 72 hours) in her egg, which she calls a “vessel,” prior to bursting out at the Grammys. First off: Danny Boyle, I think you have your next movie. Secondly: Are we sure Gaga isn’t actually an undercover David Blaine performing the most elaborate stunt ever? Said Gaga about her red carpet costume, “I was in there for about 72 hours, and it was a very creative experience, and it was time for me to prepare and really think about the meaning of ["Born This Way," which she performed on stage] and get prepared for the performance. I really wanted to be born on stage.” (No word back yet from Gaga’s camp about whether she stayed in the vessel for 72 consecutive or non-consecutive hours.) READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga's MSG shows to air on HBO. How will she shock us?

born-this-wayImage Credit: Cliff Lipson/CBSHBO picked the ideal moment to announce its plans to air Lady Gaga’s upcoming New York concerts. Anyone who saw her eggs-ellent theatrical performance at Sunday night’s Grammys will be inclined to tune in for the pure, simply WTF-factor. HBO’s concert event, Lady Gaga Presents the Monster Ball Tour at Madison Square Garden, which will air May 7, will tape Feb. 21 and 22 at MSG. “Lady Gaga is the single most exciting music talent on the scene today,” said HBO Entertainment president, Sue Naegle.  “We’re especially thrilled that she’ll be creating unique new elements for the special that will make the show an even more memorable experience for our viewers.” READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga's egg coffin, Batman bubble butt: EW.com readers outraged, confused at low shock value

Lady Gaga threw a wrench into the peaceful fabric of Crazy Town, of which she is mayor, by showing up to Sunday’s Grammy Awards encased in a giant egg, then “hatching” in a solid-color latex number with zero — zero! — random patches of material calling attention to her genital area. “This is pretty tame for her; most of her body is covered,” complained dee123 in the comment section of EW’s Grammys Red Carpet photo gallery. Meg Mon agreed. “She did add a few little Klingon bits on her forehead and shoulders. But for someone who is being ‘born’ into a performance, I expect something — bigger.” According to Allison, Gaga failed in more than one arena of fashion: “Not crazy enough to be shocking, not sane enough to be pretty,” she laments. Luckily, Ethan stepped in as the voice of reason. “I can’t believe you’re calling her tame when she came to the effin’ Grammys IN AN EGG. I love what Lady Gaga has done to life.”

Meanwhile, my favorite Gaga-related comment came from loyal reader Madd: “The leather outfit (pictured, bottom) reminded me of the Arrested Development episode where Tobias buys a ‘Leather Daddy’ outfit.” Oh, does it ever. READ FULL STORY
