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:


Disney characters model designer clothes for Barneys holiday campaign

Your favorite Disney characters are swapping their classic clothes for designer duds. Minnie Mouse, Mickey Mouse, Daisy Duck, Goofy, Snow White, Cruella de Vil, and Princess Tiana will model high fashion threads for Barneys New York’s upcoming holiday campaign. They will strut their stuff as supermodels for a 3-D short film featured in the store’s window displays as part of an extravagant light show. Take that, Lady Gaga!

'Downton Abbey' meets 'The Full Monty'?

Hang on to your suspenders, Masterpiece Theatre fans: this week on Downton Abbey, the boys go commando.

That’s right, Hugh Bonneville, Dan Stevens, and the rest of the male leads weren’t allowed to wear underwear while filming a cricket match for the season’s final episode, the Sun reports.  This, of course, led to rampant foolishness, snickering, tomfoolery, and generally boorish behavior among the cast members.

According to David Robb, who plays Dr. Clarkson, the old-fashioned trousers they were given instead of boxers failed to adequately contain their, um, tea and crumpets: “You just flop and dangle all over the place,” he told the Sun.

Now that kind of dialogue just might liven the show up a bit.

Johnny Wujek on 'ANTM: College Edition,' replacing Mr. Jay, working with Tyra and the advice he got from Katy Perry

America’s Next Top Model returns tonight, and along with a crop of college-aged model hopefuls, we’ll meet Tyra Banks’ all-new inner circle. Fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone, blogger Bryanboy and model Rob Evans replace the deposed judges, while stylist Johnny Wujek — the man behind Katy Perry’s candy-coated stage outfits and over-the-top red carpet ensembles — takes on the role of photo shoot creative consultant.

Kim Kardashian's coming out -- as a Diana Ross lookalike

The Marilyn thing is worn out. Ditto photo shoots that evoke Old Hollywood glamour. So, what’s a Kardashian to do when she wants to play dress-up?

The answer, apparently: Look toward Diana Ross for inspiration. “Definitely a new look for me,” the reality star wrote after posting behind-the-scenes photos of a Supremes-style shoot with Hype Williams. “She ain’t nothin’ but common,” Jennifer Hudson reportedly snorted after seeing the photos.
