Why did Lady Gaga axe her video with R. Kelly?

Lady Gaga

A few months back, Lady Gaga was all set and ready to release the music video for her single with R. Kelly, ARTPOP's "Do What U Want." But wouldn't you know it, this happened to coincide with a scathing report on how R. Kelly was systematically targeting young black women, and the video (catch a thirty-second clip below) just sort of disappeared while Gaga tweeted some vague, cryptic things about betrayal or art or whatever. Well, now Page Six is MORE

Lady Gaga wasted lots of water on “G.U.Y.”

Lady Gaga

I still haven't seen the music video for Lady Gaga's latest single "G.U.Y.", mostly because it involves Real Housewives. And I mean really, why bother? I like Nene Leakes, but that's it. I cannot for the life of me care about any of these other random spoiled nobodies. Anyhoo, it turns out the making of the video was an even bigger trainwreck, as Gaga was reportedly rude to Hearst Castle's employees and then wasted 365,000 gallons of water during MORE

Watch: Lady Gaga “G.U.Y.” – An ARTPOP Film

Lady Gaga "G.U.Y." - An ARTPOP Film

FINALLY! We have a new music video from Lady Gaga for "G.U.Y." - the latest single off of ARTPOP. The past few months have been a total mess for Gaga when it comes to the campaign for ARTPOP, but thankfully everything seems to be coming together nicely with this completely over the top, opulent and campy spectacle that features the cast of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (Kim Richards on guitar is everything) along with a cameo from MORE

Lady Gaga is pointing fingers over ARTPOP’s poor performance

Lady Gaga

When we last left Lady Gaga, she was throwing her team under the bus over the delayed music video for "Do What U Want," despite the fact that ... well, it's a collaboration with R. Kelly. She should have let that one die quietly and no one would blame her. Anyway, Gaga's still pointing fingers and is blaming her ex-manager Troy Carter for ARTPOP's poor performance rather than herself. I don't want to call it a flop, because it's really not doing MORE

Lady Gaga is having a meltdown over her delayed video

Lady Gaga

Have you ever noticed that when Lady Gaga is preparing something she's super pumped for, she has a habit of going ... a touch overboard? I'll give her credit where credit's due, girl shoots for the stars, but it usually comes at the cost of her sanity. Well, now she's trying to put together the music video for "Do What U Want," and apparently things aren't going well for her and she's having a bit of a meltdown right now. Via LittleMonsters MORE

PopBytes’ Top Ten Favorite Albums of 2013!

Tegan and Sara Heartthrob

Without any intro or further ado, I finally present to you my top ten favorite albums of 2013! Lady Gaga ARTPOP Yes, I know I am going to have some eyes rolling over this but I simply don't care, I love ARTPOP!

It's totally over the top, MORE

Lady Gaga got her Picasso on!

Lady Gaga

Another day, another bizarre outfit from Lady Gaga, this one she was rocking in London totally reminds me of a Picasso painting, especially the makeup. She's obviously still on an major art kick as she continues to promote her new album ARTPOP (iTunes), which I still say is a solid release, I love it no matter what anyone else says or how many copies it sold. I was all prepared to hate the album based on the messy campaign leading up to its MORE

Oh look, Lady Gaga’s naked again!

Lady Gaga

Who's this now? Is this that Lady Gaga again? LADY GAGA! Always taking off her clothes and rolling around in moss and calling it ARTPOP ... you kids have it easy! Back in my day, we had to wait five whole minutes for a jpeg of Beyoncé's nipple slip to load, and we appreciated it! Not like you kids today, with your Instagram side boobs, your topless selfies and Snapchatted penises. No ma'am pam! Back in my day, you were lucky if Paris Hilton MORE

There’s some shady shade circling Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP

Lady Gaga ARTPOP

NOTE FROM THE EDITOR: The Examiner article we quoted in this post is just as shady as the shade surrounding ARTPOP, so please take it all with a grain of salt. I can't speak for Jeremy, but personally I love ARTPOP, and whatever drama was or wasn't behind the scenes doesn't matter to me at all, it's all about the music in the end, and the music is really good. - MK Has anyone else noticed just how much f**kery is going with Lady Gaga's new MORE

Lady Gaga killed it on SNL with “Gypsy”

Lady Gaga

So it seems that Lady Gaga's new album, ARTPOP, has seriously divided people into two camps ... those who hate it and those who absolutely love it. I fall into the latter, I was quite concerned that the album was going to be a disaster (based on the totally messy promo campaign), I almost wanted to hate it! But I cannot tell a lie, I think it's brilliant from start to finish—it's quirky, campy, super fun, and a bit bizarre. Anyways, Gaga MORE

Listen: Lady Gaga’s “Venus”

Lady Gaga "Venus"

Here's another track off Lady Gaga's new album, ARTPOP (out November 11th), called "Venus." To be completely honest, I really don't know what to make of this song (produced by Gaga herself), it's decent and kind of catchy but there's no way it will be played on the radio, it's simply too bizarre (right in line with some of her recent outfits). This was supposed to be the album's official second single, but Gaga decided to go with "Do What U Want" MORE

Listen: Lady Gaga’s “Do What U Want” ft. R. Kelly

Lady Gaga "Do What U Want" featuring R. Kelly

ARTPOP is now mere weeks away (November 11th), and Lady Gaga just dropped a new promotional R&B infused single off the album called "Do What U Want" featuring R. Kelly (produced by DJ White Shadow). You can pick up the track right now on iTunes as part of a special iTunes countdown to the album's release. To be honest, I'm kind of on the fence with this slower tempo track, maybe it will grow on me but I've never really been a fan of R. Kelly, so MORE
