Lady GaGa Dishes On ‘Do What U Want’ Video Delay

 Lady GaGa Dishes On Do What U Want Video Delay

When a song is soaked in as much smash-potential as Lady GaGa‘s ‘Do What U Want’, it’s almost expected that its video will be awaited with fever-pitch anticipation. However, for Mother Monster’s fans, the “waiting” has been never-ending.

Indeed, despite ample teasing, the clip has yet to materialize – leaving last August’s ‘Applause’ as the sole video to be lifted from the star’s ‘ARTPOP’ album. Alarming, right?

Well, even more perplexing was the lack of explanation for the hold up. That is until today, though.

The 27-year-old singer shattered the silence with a lengthy note to fans on LittleMonsters.com.

Her reasons for the odd delay after the jump…

Lady GaGa Addresses ‘ARTPOP’ ‘$25 Million Budget’ Reports

r.kelly lady gaga that grape juice Lady GaGa Addresses ARTPOP $25 Million Budget Reports

 

Before its headline-dominating release back in November, Lady GaGa‘s ‘ARTPOP’ LP found itself met with reports claiming it had been armed with a $25 million budget…employed to fund the fun filled release.

Alas, after struggling to rock the charts quite as hard as 2011′s ‘Born This Way‘ did before it, this report was picked by many major news outlets, who now claimed the performer’s label, Interscope, had lost that amount due to the album’s ‘underperformance.’

Now, after keeping mum on the matter for months, the entertainer took to her official fan community site ‘Little Monsters.Com‘, to address the allegedly false report.

Her words below…

From The Vault: Brandy – ‘Talk About Our Love (ft. Kanye West)’

Our first From The Vault of 2014 comes courtesy of Brandy and Kanye West and their R&B groove ‘Talk About Our Love’.

Rolled out as the lead single from B-Rocka’s fourth effort ‘Afrodisiac’ which came out in Summer 04 after the singer took some time out to focus on motherhood, ‘Love’ was produced by West and was also written by him alongside Harold Lilly. Like most of Yeezy’s’ work at the time, the track was built around a Funk sample, in this case ‘Gilly Hines’ by Mandrill and featured Israeli violinist Miri Ben-Ari.

The song deals with a relationship marred by rumors, gossip and “he said, she said”.

Released to critical acclaim, the song was only a moderate hit for the Vocal Bible in the US, peaking at #36 on the Billboard Hot 100, #16 on the Hip-Hop/R&B charts; but it fared a lot better in the UK with its #6 peak position on the Official Singles Charts

Dave Meyers handled the visualization of the song, delivering a stunning clip which sees the protagonists drifting apart since they are never able to catch a moment alone because their house is constantly crowded. The use of intricate choreography was also a pleasant touch and one indicative of B growing the length and breadth of her skill-set.

With Bran hard at work on a new project, our thoughts are running wild just imagining what she will come up with this go around. We’re worried though, because Ms. Norwood always delivers a chapter and verse in musical brilliance.

As always, Brandy, we’re rooting for you!

Your thoughts?

Hot Topic: Is The World Ready For A New Keri Hilson Album?

keri hilson that grape juice she is diva tgj tv Hot Topic: Is The World Ready For A New Keri Hilson Album?

 

Four years.

Despite maintaining a very present ‘presence’ at the forefront of R&B’s scene, four years have passed since the release of Keri Hilson‘s last studio album, ‘No Boys Allowed.’

Back then, the double Platinum status of its lead single ‘Pretty Girl Rock‘ and the 102,000 units sold in its first week paled in comparison to digits moved by the likes of Keyshia Cole, Beyonce and Alicia Keys months/years earlier.

However, with the gap between today’s R&B haves and have-nots wider than ever before, ‘Boys’ sales now place Hilson in a small group of ‘Urban’ belles whose labels can depend on them to pull in a profit. So, baring recent releases by Ciara, Kelly Rowland and Brandy in mind, we ask…

Is the world ready for a new Keri album?

…better yet…

Are you looking forward to a new Keri  album?
