Did Lady Gaga Slight Katy Perry on Twitter?

By ABC News Radio

Capitol Records/Interscope RecordsIn the past, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry have tried to discourage their fans from attacking one another. Yet Gaga on Thursday posted a tweet that some have perceived as a slight toward Katy.

Gaga tweeted, “It looks like green hair and mechanical horses are the thing now,” along with an emoji representing a pair of googly eyes.

That very well could have been a reference to Katy, who’s had green hair for about a month now. She rode an animatronic horse while performing “Dark Horse” during the first show of her Prismatic World Tour, in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on Wednesday night.

So what does all this have to do with Gaga? The performer arrived to the American Music Awards last year on a white mechanical horse. Not long afterward, she sported green hair for a photo shoot with Terry Richardson.

Back in January, some Gaga fans attacked Katy on Twitter after she posted an image of the stage design for her tour. They felt it was a rip-off of the stage design for Gaga’s Born This Way Ball tour.

Last summer, Gaga encouraged her fans to treat …read more

Lady Gaga’s Boyfriend Reveals Couple’s Favorite Pastimes, Gaga Says Live DVD Is Coming

By Andrea Dresdale

LittleMonsters.comWhen a singer dates an actor, you gotta figure their lives are anything but normal. But according to Lady Gaga‘s boyfriend, Chicago Fire star Taylor Kinney, he and Gaga enjoy doing all the same things that normal couples do…except she looks a bit more fashionable while doing them.

Talking to Glamour about what he and Gaga do when they go back to his hometown of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Kinney says, “We’ll hike together. I’m always giving her flak, like, ‘Babe, you can’t wear your heels when we’re hiking.’”

Kinney adds that he and Gaga have been “painting a bunch lately too.” When asked what it is that they paint, Kinney says, “I can’t tell you — I’ll have to leave it up to the imagination. There’s a lot of laughing. I think that’s the basis of a healthy relationship. We laugh a lot.”

When asked how they deal with being under the media spotlight — and the constant chatter that they’re going to get engaged or married — Kinney says, “I have no desire to talk about rumors. But I think we just complement each other. I’m proud of her, …read more

Lady Gaga Gets Wisdom Teeth Removed Ahead of Tour Kickoff

By Andrea Dresdale

Image Courtesy Lady Gaga via TwitterShe wouldn’t be able to sing with her mouth all swollen, so that’s why Lady Gaga has decided to get her wisdom teeth removed before her tour launches next month.

“Wisdom teeth out,” the singer tweeted, adding, in a parody of her song “Poker Face,” “P-p-Percocet p-p-Percocet.” Percocet is a powerful painkiller.

She then posted a selfie showing herself in bed, looking sad and clutching a stuffed animal. “Chipmunk Cheeks,” she wrote. “Wisdom Teeth out before tour. I can’t eat. I’m gonna put some meatballs in a blender.”

Tony Bennett/Lady Gaga Duets Album Finally Arriving in September

By Andrea Dresdale

Credit: Kelsey BennettIt’s been delayed a number of times, but now, Tony Bennett says his duets album with Lady Gaga will definitely be released in September. In fact, Bennett tells Showbiz411.com that the album, Cheek to Cheek, will be released before the Grammy Awards eligibility deadline of September 30.

The disc, which features him and Gaga teaming up on jazz standards, was supposed to come out in January; then it was moved to March. The delays, according to Showbiz411.com, had to do with the desire to have the album released well after Gaga’s latest album, ARTPOP, and after her tour, which starts next month, is complete. This way, she’ll be free to make TV appearances alongside Bennett to promote the album.

“Wait ’til you hear her voice,” the legendary crooner told the website, talking about Gaga. “She’s a real singer.”

By Andrea Dresdale

Image Courtesy Madonna via InstagramMadonna may not be Lady Gaga’s biggest fan, but she apparently doesn’t have any problem working with Gaga’s collaborators.

Billboard reports that Madonna is currently in the studio working on new music with Natalia Kills, a singer/songwriter, and Martin Kierszenbaum, the founder and chairman of Cherrytree Records and a senior executive at Interscope Records. In those capacities, Kierszenbaum worked on Gaga’s debut album The Fame, but he also co-wrote and produced four songs on that disc. In addition, he worked in an executive capacity on Gaga’s EP, The Fame Monster.

Madonna’s next album will be released on Interscope.

Madonna posted a photo of herself on her Instagram account with Natalia in front of a couple of microphones, and according to Billboard, Kierszenbaum is in the foreground, behind a keyboard.

“Working the midnight shift with Natalia Kills. 2 girls on a couch… don’t it taste like Holy Water?,” Madonna captioned the photo, adding her now-standard hashtags #artforfreedom, #rebelheart, and #revolutionoflove.

Madonna has previously revealed that she’s working on her new album with Swedish producer/deejay Avicii, the man behind the hits “Wake Me Up” and “Hey Brother.”
