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

Lady Gaga reveals what she prefers to be called in bed

Lady-Gaga-interviewIt’s a question we didn’t know we needed answered until Lady Gaga brought it up. In a tease of her sit-down with Anderson Cooper airing Sunday on CBS’ 60 Minutes before the Grammys, Cooper asks her what he should call her. “Gaga,” she says. Some people call her Stefani, her given name, she admits. “Especially in bed,” she says. “I prefer Stefani in bed.” Watch the clip here. I like how soft and (almost) natural she looks for their chat. My hope is that in addition to more revealing patter, she gets him to giggle like Kathy Griffin did on New Year’s Eve. The man deserves a laugh.

2010 pop time capsule: What would you put in?

inception-topImage Credit: Stephen VaughanLet’s put together a 2010 pop-culture time capsule, PopWatchers. What cultural artifacts can we entomb to communicate to our distant descendants what this year was like? What mattered to us? What shaped up? What made us laugh, made us think, or made us chitchat? My picks:

++ The top from Inception: I was at a party last weekend where people were passionately arguing about the merits and contents of this movie. This movie that came out six months ago.

++ Lady Gaga’s meat dress: Sure, Gaga wore some gagagadawful outfits this year, but it seems like the meat dress captured our imaginations more than any other.

++ Antoine Dodson’s red bandana: Hide your kids, hide your wife. Dodson’s response to his sister’s attack became a local news story, then a viral hit — and then an even bigger sensation, thanks to an Auto-Tuned song that itself was covered over and over and over again.

What would you put in the time capsule, PopWatchers?

Larry King's Top 12 Greatest Moments: Marlon Brando, Ross Perot, and Carrie Prejean's non-walkout walkout

Larry-King-Brando-kissImage Credit: Everett CollectionWhen Larry King signed off last night, it marked the end of an era. For the past 25 years, Larry King Live has been CNN’s flagship show, a forum for long-form interviews with the famous by choice — politicians, heads of state, movie stars, television personalities, musicians — and the famous by circumstance, often ordinary folks affected by tragedy. King has been there for many of history’s most significant moments these past 25 years, from the fall of the Berlin Wall to 9/11, not just presenting history to us, but witnessing it with us. The greatest moments of Larry King Live, though, the ones many of us remember most, are generally ones without global significance, the ones that show a flawed, funny human being who above all is interested in…simply having a conversation. Here are our picks for Larry King’s 12 greatest moments. Piers Morgan, you have big shoes, er, suspenders to fill.  READ FULL STORY

YouTube's most popular videos of 2010: Bieber fever and Antoine Dodson

YouTube released its list of the most-watched videos of the year, and unsurprisingly, Antoine Dodson and The Gregory Brothers’ “Bed Intruder Song” was number one, with over 47 million views and more than 14 million additional views for the iTunes version, plus dozens of reinterpretations, covers, and spoofs. Hide yo kids indeed. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga puts Senate 'on notice' to urge repeal of DADT

Lady Gaga released a video last night urging the Senate to repeal “Don’t-ask, don’t-tell” and putting legislators “on notice.”

“Social repression is currently running rampant in this country,” she said. “We have to end this law because it reinforces discrimination, and it’s setting a bad example.” READ FULL STORY

Sarah Palin, Justin Bieber, 'Jersey Shore' cast on this year's Most Fascinating People list

Barbara-Walters-fascinating-peopleImage Credit: Donna Svennevik/ABCBarbara Walters has revealed eight of the 10 people on her Most Fascinating list, and as usual, it’s a puzzling mix. The list includes:

Justin Bieber: I really hope he sings a version of “Baby” in which he replaces the word “baby” with “Barbara.” Barbara, Barbara, Barbara, oooooh! That would indeed fascinate me.
Sandra Bullock: Agree! The whole first half of 2010 was Sandra Bullock time. Also, everyone loves her.
LeBron James: Was that ESPN special “fascinating” to you?
Jennifer Lopez: Hm.
Kate Middleton: Agree. A new, real-life princess. How fascinating.
Sarah Palin: This is her third year in a row on the list. For someone who despises the “mainstream media,” she sure gets a lot of coverage.
Betty White: It might seem like ages ago that Betty White hosted Saturday Night Live, but that was technically this year!
The cast of The Jersey Shore: Oy.

Usually ABC reveals nine people before the show airs, leaving just the numero uno most fascinating person a mystery, but I guess this year they want to build extra intrigue into the Dec. 9 airing.

So who does that leave us with? READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga fans discover her pre-fame 'Sopranos' cameo

lady-gaga-sopranosMeadow had better watch out! Lest you think the Internet ever forgets, check out this clip Little Monsters discovered over the weekend of a 15-year-old Lady Gaga on The Sopranos. Gaga, then merely Stefani Germanotta, high school student at New York City’s Convent of the Sacred Heart, had a blink-and-miss-it part in the episode “The Telltale Moozadell” from the third season of HBO’s hit series in 2001. She’s one of a pack of giggly schoolgirls smoking and throwing back sodas while watching Tony Soprano’s son, A.J., swim laps at the school pool. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga is the seventh most powerful woman in the world, says Forbes

lady_gagaImage Credit: Max AbadianPower rankings — they’re so hot right now. Forbes unveiled its “Power Women” list yesterday, ranking the 100 most powerful women in the world. Coming in in the top slot: Michelle Obama. Oprah was ranked at No. 3, Lady Gaga at No. 7, Beyoncé at No. 9, and Ellen DeGeneres at No. 10. That puts them all ahead of Nancy Pelosi (No. 11), Sonia Sotomayor (No. 19), and the heads of state of Australia (No. 58), Finland (No. 62), Ireland (No. 64), Argentina (No. 68), Iceland (No. 80), Costa Rica (No. 83), and Liberia (No. 86). I was a little surprised to see Sarah Palin outrank Queen Elizabeth — 16 to 41! — but okay.

Beyond the top 10, the entertainment and television news industries are really well represented: Angelina Jolie (No. 21), Katie Couric (No. 22), Madonna (No. 29), Chelsea Handler (No. 33), Heidi Klum (No. 39), Meredith Vieira (No. 40), Sarah Jessica Parker (No. 45), Diane Sawyer (No. 46), Stephenie Meyer (No. 49), Rachel Maddow (No. 50), Suze Orman (No. 61), Gisele Bundchen (No. 72), Rachael Ray (No. 78), and Martha Stewart (No. 99, just squeaked by) all made the cut.

The full list is here, and it’s actually a pretty interesting read. (And when you’re finished scanning the list, check out a teaser for EW’s own Power List, in this week’s issue.) Who do you think they missed, PopWatchers?
