Taylor Kinney and Lady Gaga Wedding Singer Announced

No big shocker, but the New York Post is reporting that friend and music collaborator Tony Bennett will be singing at the big Lady Gaga wedding, whenever it takes place! I am still shocked that these two sang together, but it looks like they are closer than just singing a song together!

Britney Rings in a New Decade

Britney turns 30?! How did that happen? We swear she was just 21, in all her poppy princess glory. Yes, we’ve chosen to block out the intervening hot mess, head-shaving, baby-rearing, meltdown-having years. And fortunately she appears to have somewhat emerged on the other side. (Let that be a lesson to you Lindsay Lohan!)

Britney celebrated in a relatively simple way – by ice skating with her boyfriend in Houston. Of course, nothing is ever totally simple for a celeb right of passage. Meanwhile, her famous friends were sending her well-wishes and homemade videos. Kim Kardashian sent her wish via a video on Celebuzz: “Happy birthday to the beautiful Miss Britney Spears! Welcome to the 30’s club, Brit!!”

Lady Gaga, Justin Beieber, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Heidi Klum, Miley Cyrus, Ryan Seacrest and many other sent their fond regards, which Britney no doubt enjoyed reading while hanging out  with her sons Preston, 6, and Jayden, 5.

Britney goes back to South America Saturday for her tour, playing a free show in Mexico City this weekend.


Adele, Nicki Minaj, Kanye Top 2012 Grammy Nominations

She may have gone on hiatus due to some health troubles and throat surgery but Adele didn’t take a hit in her popularity this year. The British singer was nominated for six Grammy Awards last night including for album of the year, record of the year, and song of the year. But it’s Kanye West leading the pack with the highest number of nominations: seven, and many for his collaboration with Jay-Z.

Close behind were the Foo Fighters and Bruno Mars, each with six nominations. Bon Iver, Nicki Minaj, Mumford & Sons and Rihanna each earned four nominations.

Here’s a list of some of the top noms – some new-comers and a few stand-by favorites

For record of the year, nominees were Adele (“Rolling in the Deep”), Bruno Mars (“Grenade”), Bon Iver (“Holocene”), Mumford and Sons (“The Cave”) and Katy Perry (“Firework”).

Album nods go to Adele (21), the Foo Fighters (Wasting Light), Lady Gaga (Born this Way), Bruno Mars (Doo-Wops & Hooligans), and Rihanna (Loud).

Vying for Song of the Year: Kanye West and Rihanna (“All of the Lights”), Mumford and Sons (“The Cave”), Bruno Mars (“Grenade”), Bon Iver (“Holocene”) and Adele (“Rolling in the Deep”).

Yes, for some reason Rihanna keeps sneaking her way in there; hopefully this is the year that someone with real talent trumps her pop appeal.

Big Bang Theory has Much to be Thankful For

Either the Thanksgiving specials on TV were that bad, or the Big Bang Theory is that good. But whatever the reason, a rerun of the show trounced the other Thanksgiving-themed shows offered up across the networks on Thursday night. The Big Bang Theory got 11.2 million viewers compared to Charlie Brown Thanksgiving with 5.8 million and A Very Gaga Thanksgiving at 5.4 million. NBC’s 85th anniversary of the Thanksgiving Day Parade pulled in only 3.7 million viewers.

At the very least, Charlie Brown topped Lady Gaga, which should be some point of pride – tradition trumping trend- but it’s clean that none of the networks really delivered a stellar Thanksgiving lineup. On a day when many people are just looking for an excuse to watch TV and escape the chaos that is family, it seems like networks would provide a few intriguing options. But in absence of that, it’s safe to say that geeks take the day.


Lady Gaga Hangs out with Blake Lively

There’s a sentence I bet you didn’t think you’d see, but the two stars came together for the love of fashion. Gaga opened a workshop at Barneys, being described as a “Christmas experiential shopping extravaganza.” Blake Lively and other stars were on hand for the opening and to see what Gaga – known for her … let’s say … unique sense of fashion – had in store.

The store will donate 25% of items sold to Gaga’s Born This Way foundation, started by the singer and her mother.

Following the opening of her store, she went on to a book signing for the launch of her collaboration with renowned fashion photographer Terry Richardson. Her latest project is a new book titled LADY GAGA x TERRY RICHARDSON.


Lady Gaga Wants to Make Bullying Illegal

After the suicide death of bullied teen Jamey Rodemeyer, Lady Gaga said she was aiming to make bullying illegal. Following the teen’s death, Gaga tweeted, “The past days I’ve spent reflecting, crying, and yelling. I have so much anger…It is hard to feel love when cruelty takes someones life….Bullying must become illegal. It is a hate crime. I am meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must end.”

Her creation of a new foundation proves she’s pretty serious about this promise. Lady Gaga put actions behind her words this week with the development of and organization which is aimed at empowering youth.

The Born This Way Foundation is her “passion project” and she will be directing it alongside her mom, Cynthia Germanotta. The goal is to provide a “standard of bravery and kindness as well as a community worldwide that protects and nurtures others in the face of bullying and abandonment,” Lady Gaga said.

The charity is going to support other initiatives that empower youth by taking on tough issues like self-image, well-being, anti-bullying as well as mentoring and personal development. They will be using digital mobilization to help create a virtual community that will support and nurture people around the globe.


Lady Gaga Sued for Allegedly Profiting Off Japan Earthquake Relief Bracelets

We hope there isn’t a bit of truth to this accussation, but we are sad to report that Lady Gaga is being sued over claims she profited off charity wristbands sold to help victims of the Japanese earthquake.

According to the Michigan legal network 100LAWFIRM, Lady Gaga (real name: Stefani Germanotta) and the companies involved in the sale of the wristbands are accused of inflating the shipping charges for the them and profiting off the charity sales. The bracelets go for $5.00, but sales tax and a $3.99 shipping charge are tacked on to the purchase.

The lawsuit against Lady Gaga claims the singer and her partners overcharged for the shipping, added sales tax to a charity item when they should not have and pocketed cash from the sales that did not belong to them.

According to Lady Gaga’s website, all proceeds for sales of the “We Pray For Japan” wristbands “go directly to Japan relief efforts. Detroit area attorney Alyson Oliver believes some of the money has gone into Lady Gaga and her partners’ pockets instead. The lawsuit filed Saturday is seeking class-action status and refunds for those who bought the wristbands.

“The recent events here really affected me, not just because I have so many fans in Japan, but because it’s hard to watch a country struggle,” Lady Gaga told Us Weekly on Saturday while performing as part of the MTV Music Video Aid Japan Show in Chiba City. “But I can’t let myself cry — I have to be strong because [everyone in Japan] has been so strong. No one gave up for a second.”

“While we commend Lady Gaga for her philanthropic efforts, we want to ensure that claims that ‘all proceeds will be donated to Japan’s earthquake’ are in fact true,” said Oliver, an attorney for 1800LAWFIRM.

“Our intention via this lawsuit is to uncover any improprieties committed by Lady Gaga and appropriate the full donations assumed to the victims in Japan.”
