Lady Gaga Not Threatened by Taylor’s Sex Scenes

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Dating, Features

Lady Gaga and Taylor KinneyLady Gaga doesn't feel "threatened" by her boyfriend's sex scenes.

The "Applause" hitmaker doesn't mind Taylor Kinney - whom she has been dating for three years - getting close to his Chicago PD co-star Sophia Bush because she is confident in their romance and understands he is just doing his job.

"[Gaga is] an artist through and through. There's no part of her that doesn't understand our job or thinks it's weird. I thinks she's probably the least threatened woman on the planet," Sophia said.

Sophia also admitted her first encounter with the 28-year-old singer - whose real name is Stefani Germanotta - was "a little strange" because she had already shot intimate scenes with Taylor at that point: "It's always a little strange to meet the love of someone's life after you've swapped spit with their partner! But she's just the loveliest human being and so warm and welcoming - I've been such a huge fan of her for so long."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Weddings, Rumors

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKanye West and Kim Kardashian are planning to turn their wedding into a week-long event.

The rapper and his reality TV star fiancee - who got engaged in October - are reportedly set to tie the knot in a lavish ceremony in Paris in May that will feature on Kim's reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

According to The Sun newspaper, the couple, who have eight-month-old daughter North West, have hired wedding planners who are trying to line-up singers Lady Gaga and Fergie to perform, alongside music legend Stevie Wonder and Wu-Tang Clan. The huge event is also rumored to feature fire-dancers, acrobats and fireworks and will have its own currency for guests to spent at a Vegas-style casino.

Kim, 33, and Kanye, 36, met Gaga in Paris and are said to be "desperate" to persuade the "Applause" hitmaker to perform because they are both fans of her music and she was the first artist who was asked to be involved.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Features

Lady GagaLady Gaga battled severe depression late last year.

The "Applause" hitmaker admitted she had a very stressful 2013, during which she cancelled her tour to have hip surgery, parted ways with her long-term manager, Troy Carter, and received mixed reviews for her latest album ARTPOP, but is now in a much better place.

"I went through a rough time last year. I felt very taken advantage of by people I trusted. I became very depressed at the end of 2013. I was exhausted fighting people off. I couldn't even feel my own heartbeat. I was angry, cynical, and had this deep sadness like an anchor dragging everywhere I go. I just didn't feel like fighting anymore. I didn't feel like standing up for myself one more time -- to one more person who lied to me," the 27-year-old star told the March issue of Harper's Bazaar. "I really felt like I was dying -- my light completely out."

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Want Lady Gaga to Sing at Their Wedding

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Weddings

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKim Kardashian and Kanye West have asked Lady Gaga to sing at their wedding.

The couple - who have a seven-month-old daughter North - are expected to marry in Paris, France in the summer and it is said they are keen to have the "Applause" hitmaker perform at the upcoming nuptials.

"Kim and Kanye met up with Gaga in Paris. They were desperate to get the star's involvement, which is why she's the first person to be asked. She's ideal for them because Kanye has always been a fan of her style and performance art. But also, Kim loves her music, so it's one they can instantly agree on," a source said.

The two stars will have to keep searching for a venue for the wedding though, after they were deemed "not classy" enough to get married at the Palace of Versailles. "Kim and Kanye really wanted to get married at Versailles and were hoping to persuade officials during their visit. But ultimately it backfired. It was still a firm non. They will now be scouting private estates and chateaux in the region," an insider said.


Lady Gaga’s Ex Threatens to Sue Over Her Book

Luc Carl and Lady GagaA new book on Lady Gaga's early days is ruffling her ex's feathers.

Gaga's longtime friend Brendan Jay Sullivan penned Rivington Was Ours, a book detailing her time on New York's Lower East Side before she made it big. Lady Gaga's ex Luc Carl believes that he has been painted as a villain in the memoir, threatening to sue Sullivan and his publisher, HarperCollins.

Sullivan, a DJ, claims in the book that Carl - a heavy-metal drummer and radio personality - was "inattentive and possessive" boyfriend who controlled many aspects of Gaga's life and career. At one point, Gaga told Sullivan that Carl had told her, "I hope you fail," which likely just fueled the Mother Monster in her efforts.

Last year when questioned about his relationship with Gaga, Carl said, "I was f - - king miserable, and it wasn’t her fault." Perhaps he's suing so that he can publish his own side of the story?

Lady Gaga: You Don’t Need to Look Like a Supermodel to Be Great

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Clothing, Style, Features

Lady GagaLady Gaga has urged women to stop worrying about their weight because people who achieve great things do not have to look like "supermodels."

The 27-year-old pop superstar has suffered with fluctuating weight throughout her career and has been criticized for being both too thin and overweight. But Gaga has dismissed society's obsession with women's figures and insists it's time people concentrated on what they're going to do with their lives rather than what they look like.

"I want to remind everyone that people who win Nobel Peace Prizes and cure diseases are not supermodels. Your legacy does not need to be a perception of beauty that's not realistic," she said in February's Fashion Magazine.

Although Gaga is now one of the world's biggest singers she insists she would still be wearing eccentric outfits and pushing the boundaries of pop if she was an unsigned artist playing in bars and small venues in her native New York City because music is her life. "There's this implication that if I wasn't so successful I would have to stop. But I never would have stopped. I would be in some bar; being Lady Gaga," she explained.

Lady Gaga and Taylor KinneyLady Gaga says her boyfriend is "weird on the inside."

The "Applause" singer insisted while she may seem like the eccentric one in their relationship, Taylor Kinney isn't as "normal" as he might appear. "He's very weird. It's like Freaky Friday. [Taylor's] in disguise, he looks normal, but is weird on the inside, and then I'm weird on the outside and equally weird on the inside," she told Extra.

The star also opened up about what makes their romance work and - while she admitted it is a "strange pairing" - said it just seems to work well. "We complement one another. I guess it is a strange pairing. We're happy!" she added.

Gaga recently opened up about the moment she fell for the 32-year-old actor while on the set of her "You & Me" video last year. "We were in the middle of this scene and I remember that he kissed me and it wasn't scripted for him to kiss me and I was sort of like was um, you know, was that real or was that fake? And he didn't really say anything and that was fine by me and we kept filming... And you know, at the end of the day he's my best friend and having your lover be your best friend. I mean, it's the best thing ever. It's the best thing I can say about it," she previously revealed.


Lady Gaga: I’m Not a Gay Icon

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Features

Lady GagaLady Gaga insists she isn't a gay icon.

The "Applause" hitmaker - who is openly bisexual - is adamant she never intended to become a poster figure for the homosexual community because she doesn't "consider" herself to be gay.

"But... but... but... but here, where do I say I'm a gay icon? I never said I was a gay icon. When did that happen? Are those lyrics on the album? Absolutely not. I don't even consider myself... I don't even know what that word means. That was a label that was invented years ago. I'm a... I'm a gay supporter," the incredulous star told Attitude magazine.

This comes as a surprise since the 27-year-old singer - who set up the Born This Way Foundation to help bullied teens - has long been an advocate for gay rights, memorably blasting the Russian government over its LGBT rights record and calling on the US military to ditch their policy of "Don't ask, Don't tell" in regards to gay people.
