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! To be honest, I was thinking this was going to be awful based on the fairly messy campaign leading up to the album's release. Yet once I finally had a full listen, I was taken over by Lady Gaga. 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

GQ’s Least Influential People of 2013 includes Gaga, Miley and Bieber!

Gaga, Miley and Bieber

Given how much self-congratulation comes with the turn of the year, it's pretty appropriate that someone would also want to call out the worst aspects of the year too. Which is why every year, GQ magazine releases their list of the least influential people of the year, just to keep people on their toes. This year, Dennis Rodman made it to the #1 spot for palling around with a murderous dictator, but there was still plenty of room for the likes of MORE

Trailer: Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular

Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular

So we're officially one month away from Christmas, which means it's time to goad my boyfriend into letting me put the tree up early. (Although I'm thinking I'll just sneak some lights onto the balcony while he's not looking—FESTIVE MISCHIEF!) Anyway, while he's still yelling at the television for playing Rudolph before it's even December, I'm just going to go ahead and slip the trailer for Lady Gaga and The Muppets' Holiday Spectacular MORE

Lady Gaga on Rob Ford: At least he’s honest!

Lady Gaga and Rob Ford

In case you haven't read a newspaper or gone onto the internet for the past few weeks, Rob Ford is our crack-smoking mayor who tried to cover up a video of him smoking crack for months before the police finally got their hands on it, at which point he pretended that he was always honest, it's just that no one ever asked him the right questions. Well, Lady Gaga is talking about Ford now because of course she is, and get this: She thinks Rob is 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

Kanye West is throwing a fit over SNL’s Kimye sketch

Waking Up With Kimye

If you missed Saturday Night Live over the weekend ... eh. It was pretty good. There were never any bad sketches, although there were never any sketches that really just killed. Also, I don't think they ever found a good way to incorporate Lady Gaga into the show, except for the stretch of sketches at the end that really hit it out of the park. (Taran Killam's speech critic during Weekend Update was absolutely genius though.) Anyway, there was MORE

Lady Gaga thinks Perez Hilton wants to kill her?

Perez Hilton and Lady Gaga

As much as Lady Gaga tends to irritate me, I at least try to give her the benefit of the doubt whenever I can. Except here she is saying that Perez Hilton is trying to suicide bomb her because he tried to move in next to her. Not to discredit anything Gaga says, but if Perez wants to explode himself out of spite ... would that really be the worst thing in the world? I'm just saying, give him a wide berth and let him do what feels natural and MORE
