Congratulations to Lady Gaga, Who, for the First Time, Has Correctly Identified a Painting

Published April 15, 2014 by gossipzoo

Remember how Lady Gaga, our beloved Mother Monster, had been running around, referring to the Venus de Milo when, really, she meant Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus? Well, she finally got it right for this picture, which she captioned “studio time! the live birth of *Venus* !!” Congrats, Gagaloo! After several attempts, you have passed Art History 101. Don’t feel bad; it took me four tries to pass my driving test. Today’s winning captions, however, got it done right the first time:

“BIG 80 s HAIR PARTY!!!!!” – Cheryl

“Yes! Finally done with my songs.” – Agnes

“I finished ARTPOP … Tiiiime to party” – Amine

“Doing the ‘YMCA’ is the new ‘Paws up!” – Murny

“In which Mother Monster adds ‘Olympic Gymnast’ to her resume…” – Carlton

Congrats to our winners! Visit our Facebook page for a new Caption Contest each and every weekday. It’s never too late to add a caption, so do so in the comments!

Lady Gaga and Her Giant Hair Lead Today’s Star Sightings

Published January 4, 2014 by gossipzoo

Lady Gaga‘s hair deserves its own applause.

The Mother Monster and her sky-high hairdo stepped out in New York City Friday. Though Gaga left her seashells at home (Azealia Banks must be thrilled), the “Swine” singer did glam up her look with some pastel pink streaks.

Who else did we spot about and about before the long weekend?

Take a look at our star’s sightings gallery above.

Listen: Lady Gaga’s Leaked Duet With Cher

Published December 3, 2013 by gossipzoo

Lady Gaga is losing the war against hackers.

Just a day after she was forced to prematurely release “Applause” due to leaks of her ARTPOP single surfacing online, the songstress’ super hush-hush duet with legendary singer Cher has been unearthed.

Titled “The Greatest Thing,” the track – which admittedly sounds a lot less Gaga and very much like something from Cher’s repertoire – was previously locked up as the Mother Monster was reportedly unhappy with the outcome. (Which begs the question: Who’s really leaking these things? Gay Edward Snowden?)

“It’s done & she doesn’t like it, or want it to come out. She’s an artist, it’s up to her. I’m disappointed 2,” Cher tweeted of the song back in June.

Well, the cat’s out of the bag.

The song has since been scrubbed from most places online, but you can still listen to it here. Words to the tune are now on Directlyrics.

Marina Abramovic Explains Why Lady Gaga Went Nude In Kickstarter Video

Published September 14, 2013 by gossipzoo

Lady Gaga has been known for stripping down and causing a stir. Only this time shedding the outer layer for the Kickstarter video was simply to find the inner Gaga.

“She wanted to take her clothes off to be one with nature,” famed performance artist Marina Abramovic told Celebuzz. “At first I thought it was really crazy because it’s [the forest] full of mosquitoes and ticks. That was her decision. It was up to her how she wanted to experience nature.”

This was all part of Gaga practicing The Abramovic Method, which involves exercises and environments designed to increase awareness of the singer’s physical and mental experience in the moment.

Gaga decided to take it all off – mentally and physically – during a grueling three-day retreat two months ago at Abramovic’s home in upstate New York.

“She was so humble. She knew my work and respected my work and she wanted to learn.

“She landed at 4:30 a.m. in Albany and at 5 a.m. showed up at my doorstep and said ‘let’s start.’

“She really pushed herself. She said, ‘if I can make myself better, then everyone who hears my music can do the same.'”

But there were rules even this superstar with nearly 40 million Twitter followers had to follow – no computer, cell phone, watch, or makeup allowed. She couldn’t even read: “Only writing so she wrote a lot in her diary,” revealed Abramovic.

Clothes were allowed but only those chosen by the performance artist herself. As we all could see from the mysterious video, the Mother Monster ended up discarding the traditional lab coat attire, which Abramovic admits she pulled off the rack from a local tracker store just for the fashion icon.

And as the legendary artist puts it, every single moment was “ritualized,” so much so they came away with 30 hours of video footage.

“From the moment she woke up, even drinking water was an exercise, the way she uses almond oil in her hair,” Abramovic said. “Everything was so restricted and minimal, almost monastic, to get to the kind of simplicity.”

Gaga was so hardcore that she spent three hours blindfolded in the forest: “The idea is that you can see with all parts of the body, not just your eyes. And she found her way back home,” said the artist.

Then, you see Gaga and Abramovic sitting in chairs along the river: “We aren’t looking at each other, we are just looking opposite, but it was to stay in nature and be in the present, absorb and have quietness without any stress – something that she needed so much.

“It’s a way to understand that you have to stop going for the moment and just experience the moment. She’s 27 [years-old], she’s had enormous success so far, the pressure is enormous.”

The singer also spent the majority of time in solitude.

“She went to a wooden hut which I built on the river where there is no electricity. She could stay there for a long time and listen to the water running and wash herself off in the river without using any soap. This is really very pure, very simple.”

And that otherworldly vocal noise heard throughout the video is just another exercise: “This is producing a very special sound from her throat. Four sounds start from the rolling stomach and go through the heart.

“We started from where she released the sound in order to make the body hollow and release energy. That’s the sound we used for the entire video because we know her singing, but we’ve never seen her chanting that way.”

And what’s up with Gaga cradling that massive crystal?

Abramovic says the songstress learned how she could use crystals for healing.

Over the course of 72 hours, even minimal food meant back to basics, like peeled almonds soaked in water.

“She had to eat alone and very slow so she could feel and smell the food.

With Gaga’s latest highly-anticipated album, ARTPOP, ready to make its debut, Abramovic said the retreat was to help her handle the mounting pressure.

“She is so opened minded and very strong. She said to me ‘nobody knows what it takes to get to where I am,'” said Abramovic, who infamously danced with Jay-Z while performing his song “Picasso Baby” for six hours straight at the Pace Gallery in NYC. “I think very few people understand how much work she puts into it. She really wanted to have the time to come back to herself.”

After launching the Kickstarter campaign, Gaga has helped Abramovic raise over $250,000 of her $600,000 goal by Aug. 26 to help fund the Marina Abramovic Institute.

And this is just the beginning of the Gaga and Abramovic “radical” collaboration, she says.

After the video came out, the singing sensation sent her a note: “So many times [Gaga] said, ‘I am the frame changing different images and different personalities’ and she sent me a message ‘finally people can see really who I am.'”

Here Is Everything We Know About Lady Gaga’s ‘ARTPOP’ (So Far)

Published August 30, 2013 by gossipzoo

It feels like it’s been way too long since Lady Gaga did (or wore, or said, or … yeah) something outrageous.

Ever since the pop star canceled the remainder of her “Born This Way Ball” tour to have hip surgery in February, the Grammy-winning singer has kept things surprisingly – and uncharacteristically – low-key. From a new bare-faced look to relatively normal street attire (unless you count that gold wheelchair, anyway), it was beginning to feel as if Gaga’s meat-dress-wearing days were over.

In all reality, it seems she’s just been busy gearing up for the release of her highly anticipated CD, ARTPOP, which over the last few weeks has been generating the type of fun, if confusing, buzz that fans have waiting for.

So, what’s the deal with the CD? Here’s everything we know about it so far:

ARTPOP Officially Drops Nov. 11 …

On July 12, Gaga posted the album release date on her Facebook page, along with a statement clarifying the artist’s creative process. (Well, the post was actually more confusing than clarifying. Which, again, not that shocking.) In addition, fans will have access to an accompanying App that “combines music, art, fashion and technology.”

… But You Can Pre-Order It All on Aug. 19

Although the album and app’s original pre-order date was September 1, the pop star moved it up two weeks “due to public anticipation,” according to her Facebook page.

The First Single Will Be Called “Applause”

Also available on Aug. 19 will be the album’s first single, “Applause,” according to a tweet from Mother Monster herself on Sunday. Official artwork for the single, which was cowritten by her longtime collaborator DJ White Shadow, made its debut in Women’s Wear Daily Sunday afternoon and features a close-up of the 27-year-old’s face with paint smeared across it. (BTW: That nude photo you see, above, is apparently just an ARTPOP promo.)

A Music Video Has Already Been Recorded

According to MTV, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin – who photographed the cover art for “Applause” – also shot a music video for the much-anticipated single last week in Los Angeles.

Gaga Will Perform Her New Single at the VMAs

Gaga is sure to get the crowd going when she performs “Applause” at the 2013 MTV Music Video Awards on Aug. 25. Gaga has never failed to entertain at the awards show (see: her meat dress; her bloody performance; and her cross-dressing alter ego), so expectations for this performance are understandably high (if a little feared).

More Collaborations Are On the Way

Among those said to have worked with Gaga on ARTPOP include her longtime collaborator Fernando Garibay and EDM maven Zedd. In May, Gaga was also photographed in the studio with famed songwriter Dallas Austin.
