  • A Dark Side to Lady Gaga's Dazzle

    Halftime at the Super Bowl, once merely a forgettable 30 minutes to get another beer or join the line at the restroom, is now more entertaining. It sometimes gets different reviews from different generations. But this year, everyone could find something to be dazzled by in Lady Gaga's terrific patriotic pop. She was a dazzling Peter Pan, a hip Mary Poppins, a sparkly SpongeBob SquarePants, floating through the air like the man on the flying trapeze, shimmering drones illuminating an American flag in the night sky behind her. It was testimony to high-tech triumphalism to match the magic on the...

    While Gaga did indeed do the leap without a stunt double's help, this part of the show was performed in advance. After it aired, the cameras cut to Gaga somersaulting as she soared swiftly through the air to a podium to continue the show. For those inside the arena the show began with Gaga hanging from her guide wires, in the dark. Footage shot from fans shows a motionless Gaga suspended from the wires. Suddenly a spotlight shines on her, and she starts her descent. Intel which was behind the drones used in the pre-recorded feat blamed the need to...
  • Left Bashes Lady Gaga for Not Attacking Trump During Super Bowl Halftime Show

    After much anticipation and speculation, pop mega-star Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl LI halftime show performance was largely devoid of partisan politics — much to the chagrin of myriad liberal media and entertainment reporters. Journalists from some of the country’s biggest news outlets raked the “Bad Romance” singer over the coals for failing to bash President Donald Trump’s immigration and national security policies, specifically his controversial refugee moratorium. Below is a roundup of some of the most disappointed reactions from a liberal media upset that Lady Gaga delivered a non-political Super Bowl performance clearly intended to entertain all Americans. 1. Los...

Celebrities including Lady Gaga, Pink, Amanda Seyfried, Sia, Jeffrey Wright and Laverne Cox have circulated a petition drawn up in the days following Donald Trump’s historic presidential election victory.

    FULL TITLE:'I have nothing to say': Lady Gaga leaves viewers cringing as she refuses to talk with Charlie Stayt in painfully awkward interview She's famed for her carefree and spirited attitude. But viewers were shocked to see Lady Gaga looking less animated than usual as she reluctantly answered questions about politics on Friday's episode of BBC Breakfast. Chatting to Charlie Stayt, the 30-year-old songstress left the audience cringing when she announced she had 'nothing to say' in an interview littered with excruciating silences. Pressing further, the BBC presenter questioned: 'He claims he represents people who have been unrepresented, who haven’t...

    Hillary Clinton praised female musicians who offer young girls a positive role model, writing that none of these singers "had success handed to her" in a Thursday op-ed for Billboard magazine. The Democratic presidential front-runner says she's a fan of artists including Lady Gaga, Lana Del Rey, Demi Lovato and Missy Elliott, women whose "talent is dazzling" and matched by their work ethic. "They all had to keep at it, even in the face of failure and discouragement - they kept singing, kept writing, kept getting better and better," Clinton wrote. "They did it because they knew they had something...

    Lady Gaga -- the flamboyant and provocative New York-based pop singer -- has been removed from a Chinese government blacklist, allowing her chart-topping new album "ARTPOP" to go on sale legally in China. But Chinese censors have placed conditions on the album art, inflating a large ball between her legs to cover more of the naked singer's body and adding a pair of black tights to the singer's bare legs. The cover of her latest album was designed by the American artist Jeff Koons, who specializes in garish and kitsch representations of the banal and everyday.

    New York Daily News: 'One star' Well, the reviews are in on the new Joanne Trattoria restaurant (Italian, expensive) that mega pop-star Lady Gaga recently opened on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with/for her parents. That sounds like a nice gesture, and hard not to respect the gratitude.  Shame about the food though, which sounds like overpriced hog slop: When a wan Caprese salad with mealy tomatoes and cloying balsamic costs $18, should a server quip that cheese is sourced from “whoever gets it to us cheapest”...? When a restaurant charges $18 for fried calamari, should the dish arrive...

    Christian groups in South Korea called on Friday for pop icon Lady Gaga to cancel her concert here saying it was “pornographic” and promoted homosexuality. South Korea’s government has already bowed to public pressure and banned under-18s from attending the 26-year old’s concert, but protesters gathered outside the venue said that was not enough. “Some people can accept this as another culture but its impact is huge beyond art and debases religions. Even adults can’t see her performance which is too homosexual and pornographic,” said Yoon Jung-hoon, a reverend who organized the “Civilians Network against the Lady Gaga Concert”.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. December 9, 2011 ( – As part of a worldwide campaign to promote global acceptance of homosexuality, the Obama administration has established a $3 million “Global Equality Fund” to fund homosexual political “advocacy” around the world at taxpayer expense. State Department guidelines suggest this could include everything from funding foreign political activists to campaign against legislation that defines marriage as a union between one man and one women, to hosting gay pride parades and concerts by Lady Gaga in far-flung countries. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton trumpeted the formation of the group in a speech she delivered in...

    Lawrence O’Donnell Chides Bill Clinton And Lady Gaga For Inappropriate Birthday Flirtingby Frances Martel | 9:59 pm, October 17th, 2011 Over the weekend, former President Bill Clinton had a several-month late birthday bash in Hollywood, lasting two nights and capped off with a seductive performance by Lady Gaga, who performed a special version of “Bad Romance” and giddily called her performance a “Marilyn moment.” Given that ostentatious displays of power and wealth are public enemy #1 on The Last Word, Lawrence O’Donnell‘s cringing reaction to the affair (no pun intended) should not have come as a surprise, but it was...

    SNL must be kicking themselves for not coming up with this first. Lady Gaga (channeling Marilyn Monroe's famous showstopper for President JFK) performed this weekend at the Hollywood Bowl as part of a concert celebrating the 10th anniversary of The Clinton Foundation as well as a delayed celebration of Bill Clinton's 65th birthday. Gaga serenaded Bill and Hillary with her own version of "Bad Romance" switching in "Bill Romance" for some of the lyrics. It's uncomfortable to watch Hillary laugh along.

    “Celibacy has existed in one form or another throughout history and in virtually all the major religions of the world,” informs Encyclopedia Britannica. Whether it is for spiritual or health reasons – perhaps both – some creative types have embraced celibacy for years: Teen idols Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas Pop singer/songwriter Prince Rock star Lenny Kravitz (above) Actor Terrance Howard Writer Eve Tushnet For some artists, celibacy is seasonal. For others, a long-term commitment. Nevertheless, supporters say abstaining is often beneficial. With the support and guidance of a faith, it can also guard against diseases. Artists stand out probably...

    Pop provocateur Lady Gaga has managed to outrage and insult many Catholics by leaking her new song, “Judas” just two days before the start of Holy Week. "It's always edgy and always (about) our religion," Bill Donohue, spokesperson for the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, said about frequent pop culture attacks on the Church. "(And) all during Holy Week." In “Judas,” Lady Gaga sings about her love for Judas, the infamous apostle who betrayed Jesus. "Jesus in my virtue and Judas is the demon I cling to...I'm just a holy fool, oh baby he's so cruel, but I'm...

    Ageless TV personality Charo is giving some pointed criticism of current pop star Lady Gaga. Appearing on Friday's Good Day New York, the "Cuchi-Cuchi" actress, singer, and comedienne said, "I see Lady Gaga like Madonna with diarrhea." "The voice is gifted because she is so powerful with the voice...but why does she have to remind people of Madonna? Why don't she go her own self? I never copy nobody," Charo said in her choppy English. "I was me and I created something that was me. I can not feel comfortable being a copy of other people," She added. Charo did...
