While some artists have issues packing venues, Lady Gaga has the opposite problem. Her fan base is too big to fit in them.
Such was the case in Chicago last night.
Details on the seismic spillage below…
The singer’s long-awaited sophomore album ‘Joyride’ is still without a release date, while her name has grabbed headlines for questionable quotes rather than new music.
However, it appears fresh material is indeed on the way. And it’s being helmed by a producer responsible for one the year’s hottest anthems.
As the biggest stars of the year gear up for tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards, we journey back to one of the show’s most iconic performances of the last decade. Lady Gaga‘s 2009 showing of ‘Paparazzi.’
Already on an unprecedented ascend at the time, the natural expectation was for the singer to have picked one of breakout hits – ‘Just Dance’ and ‘Poker Face’ – for her 5 minute set. However, Gaga opted for the very fresh ‘Paparazzi.’
Produced by Rob Fusari – one of the masterminds behind Destiny’s Child’s ‘Bootylicious,’ it was another Top 10 for the artist – in the US, UK, as well Australia, Canada and France. Its Jonas Akerlund helmed visual was the first of many mini-movies from Gaga’s videography and depicted her as a fame hungry starlet.
For her VMA performance, Mother Monster went all the way in and gave the public what can only be described as a Pop-Opera.
With slick choreography courtesy of LaurieAnn Gibson and team, Gaga made sure to leave a lasting impact on viewers and peers alike thanks to fantastic theatrics that still have people talking to this day. Clearly, we all remember a bloodied-up Gaga hanging on top of the VMA stage, right?
MTV’s ceremony has been the vehicle for many headline-grabbing moments, for better or for worse. We sincerely hope this year brings in new iconic moments.
Beyonce‘s supposed ties to Disney’s ‘Lion King‘ remake aren’t the only threads linking to the silver screen this year.
How so? Today has brought with it a report spilling details of plans put in place by James Bond producers to have her write and perform the theme song for its next picture.
Christina Milian turned traffic and set hearts on fire in Los Angeles ago when she made her way into DJ Khaled’s Platinum Dinner at Catch.
She found herself in good company when she arrived. For, also in attendance was PartyNextDoor, music industry power player Jay Brown, Bridget Kelly and Randy Jackson!
Pop powerhouse Demi Lovato was on hand in Las Vegas tonight to deliver the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ ahead of the highly anticipated Mayweather vs. McGregor fight…and deliver she did!
Albeit a lengthy take on the historic number, Lovato’s showing was nothing less than a knockout (at least during the times it didn’t sound like she was battling attacks from mosquitoes)!
Look below to listen for yourself:
As Youtube and Spotify records lay broken in the wake of the release of her latest single, ‘Look What You Made Me Do,’ pop star Taylor Swift has been garnering her fair share of negative attention for the soon-to-be-chart-topper as well.
The bulk of said criticism is coming from Twitter as the former country darling’s being slammed for images spotted in the song’s forthcoming video that are eerily reminiscent of scenes from the video of Beyonce‘s 2016 hit ‘Formation.‘
Igniting a firestorm of slams by way of hilarious memes (click here to see them), the hoop-la was so big it got to the desk of Swift’s video director, the famed Joseph Kahn. Read what he had to say about it here:
Scorching temps got you hot? Look to Chris Brown to cool you off with his wet, wet, wet new music video for ‘Pills & Automobiles.’
One of apparently 8,000 new songs featured on his forthcoming set, ‘Heartbreak On a Full Moon,’ the singer called on friends/rappers Yo Gotti, Kodak Black, and A Boogie With a Hoodie to join in on the video’s water theme park-themed fun.
While The Martianz-produced cut’s lyrical content disappointingly drives over very familiar terrain for the crooner, its accompanying visual’s high octane choreography
picks up any slack and makes for quite the engaging watch.
Tuck in below to see the latest in a slew of releases given the video treatment in quite a short time from the R&B bad boy:
From ‘No Frauds’ to ‘No Flag’ (and a bevy of bops before and between), rapstress Nicki Minaj has handed out her fair share of not-so-subliminal shade this year. While some of the lyrical darts were clearly aimed at a specific target, others left listeners guessing who the intended recipient was.
Insert Cardi B.
The rising rapstress has been feeling nothing but love from music lovers who’ve helped hoist her single, ‘Bodak Yellow,’ to some impressive chart heights. Lifting the bass-heavy bop to #3 on the Hot 100 this week, ‘Yellow’ shines as the highest charting feature-less female rap single since Minaj’s own 2014 hit, ‘Anaconda.’
Yet, while the ladies have been nothing but supportive of each other publicly, some sources indicate the Young Money maven is not exactly a fan of her younger rap sister – a point underlined when a full listen of the self-proclaimed Queen of Rap’s feature on London On Da Track‘s burgeoning hit, ‘No Flag,’ saw her spit a diss many thought was aimed at Cardi…
Now far removed from his ties to Def Jam & Roc Nation, Elijah Blake sets sail on Pop’s sea as an independent act via the album ‘Audiology.’
The set dropped yesterday and brings with it a lighter, brighter and bolder Blake and material which traverses the wide array of genres the singer has pulled from to write songs for Rihanna, Usher & Justin Bieber.
