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 shaded Katy Perry on Twitter

Lady Gaga

People keep saying that Lady Gaga is over or done or blah blah blah whatever. I'm not the biggest fan of Gaga's, but I doubt she's over. If anything, I get the feeling like her career has settled into a comfortable niche and she's just delivering what's expected of her. Which apparently involves making videos with Real Housewives. That being said, if we're talking career moves, it might not have been the best idea for her to try and 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 thinks way too highly of being puked on

Lady Gaga

When Lady Gaga was at SXSW, she employed Millie Brown to puke all over her. Roman Shower thing? Pompous arthouse fetishism? Who knows. But apparently, in her keynote speech, Gaga found a way to tie that in to Martin Luther King Jr. "I had a dream! That one chick barfed on another chick for a fake nacho chip company. Then I woke up and I was too freaked out to go back to sleep. Wonder what it means ..." Rolling Stone reports ... Speaking to the MORE

“Hi, I’m Lady Gaga, and this is Jackass!”

Lady Gaga

A couple weeks ago, we posted about how Lady Gaga wanted to perform her SXSW set in a giant Dorito's vending machine, which got denied because that just sounds stupid and expensive. But don't worry! She had a back-up plan: According to HuffPo, Gaga got spitroasted (literally), rode a mechanical pig bull, and then got puked on by a painter. Oh, and of course it was all sponsored by Doritos, because when you think of Doritos, you think of MORE

Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation is … not terribly efficient

Lady Gaga

So, yeah. About this whole Lady Gaga foundation thing. Look, we've all seen the story by now, so let's just cut to the blockquote from the New York Post and then I'll throw in my two cents below ... The pop superstar’s fledgling Born This Way Foundation spent $429,682 on outreach with its wildly popular “Born to Be Brave” 23-event US bus tour, but the effort dimmed in comparison with what Gaga’s coterie of consultants pulled down, MORE

SXSW won’t let Lady Gaga perform in a giant Doritos machine

Lady Gaga

Well, that's officially the dumbest headline I've ever typed. But yeah, Lady Gaga. Doritos machine. That's a thing that came out of her brain. NME! Explain yourself! The City of Austin has refused Lady Gaga a permit to play in a giant Doritos vending machine at this year's SXSW. The singer had been set to perform at the Texas festival's Doritos Stage, which is mocked up to look like a huge, snack-dispensing machine, but according to Stereogum 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

Listen: Lady Gaga & Christina Aguilera: Do What U Want

Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera "Do What U Want"

Oh this is truly a pop music treat to end the year with ... it's Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera's remix of "Do What U Want" ... which is way better than the original! Who really needs that pervert R. Kelly anyway when we now have the power of Xtina! Have a listen below for yourself plus just in case you missed it check out the ladies' incredible live performance together from a couple of weeks ago on the season finale of The Voice. Happy New MORE
