What's so special about Egyptian cotton anyway?
I basically agree. I was just kind of shocked at how willingly she discussed her extravagance. I guess I figured that was more persona than anything else.
Sounds like Lady Gaga to me.
There wasn't anything truly horrifying about what she said, aside from the amount of curse words. I was more horrified about the article's use of Lady CaCa and frequently throwing cunt at her.
Lady GaGa has an ego. So what? MiMi called and said her bathtub doesn't have enough bubbles. Move on.
Will Oscar have Riva Fever?
Yes, literally the only thing that upsets me or throws me off about this is the personal insults she slings (hoodrat? wtf? lmao) because those are uncalled for. Otherwise, she's just being honest about her lifestyle, and I have no problems whatsoever with that--she has in pretty much every way made herself Pop's most transparent superstar, and it's something I've always appreciated about her. Gaga's always had a tremendous ego, but she's usually good at knowing when and around whom it should be shut off. (One of my favorite Gaga moments was during her recent promotion for her fragrance. She sort of returned to The Fame days Bytch Gaga for several interviews around this time, and in one actually said, "That's why I'm the artist, and you're the public." ).
To me, and Gaga basically just confirmed this via twitter, this is pretty clearly a matter where she let her anger at a personal situation get the best of her, and threw some petty insults. She just revealed that this former assistant was her "best friend from NY since [she] was 19." And, frankly, I have very little doubt this lawsuit is spurious.
Honestly, what's most disappointing about her recent spate of tabloid drama is less how I think it actually reflects on her and more how it might reflect on her non-profit now that she's one of the core founding members of the Born This Way Foundation. I think she needs to be more careful than ever not to slip up and maintain the most professional of attitudes at all times. Perhaps an unfair expectation to saddle somebody with, but when you choose "breed compassion" as your message, and choose to found a legitimate and serious non-profit based on that message, perfect composure at all times is part of the job description.

Can you please post the link to that first interview you mentioned?!
"Now my life is sweet like cinnamon..."
LOL, the hoodrat is her best friend?!?!?! Well, apparently when you work for Gaga then, you're no longer her friend.
"He's inside me, and he wants to take me again!"
Here you go, Honey:
And this one is pretty indicative of the same sort of attitude (actually, she's even more aloof in this one):
She also, in another interview for the fragrance (though I can't find it), gave one of my favorite interview answers ever. A reporter asked her something along the lines of whether or not she was nervous that the perfume would be perceived as a cash-in. And without missing a beat she informed the reporter that she was already "a product."
I just struggle with a lot of her recent diatribes and rants, mostly because of what kupo said. I'm all about being a diva and owning up to a fabulous way of life, but many of her decisions and actions lately skew too far into hatred and an absolute disconnect with reality. I know I'm making much too big of a deal out of this, but I just think it's interesting.
I am dying to hear Artpop. I really feel like, if it fails to connect with the general public, the Lady Gaga brand finds itself in a very interesting, difficult position. It seems like the line between global pop superstar and niche icon is increasingly blurred.
She just canceled the rest of her tour because of an injury.
Apparently it was a labral tear. Early word is that it could take anywhere from 3-6 months before she can perform again (at least at the level you know Gaga is going to want to).
Feel really bad for her. There's not a performer on Earth that something like this would probably devastate more.
Regardless of a cancelled tour, this bytch keeps her other appointments.
I love this woman so much.
Lady Gaga recuperates....in a 24-karat gold wheelchair.
Yeah, bytch makes even injury into a fashion statement. We are not worthy. Legend.
You can do it, Naomi! You're...
ONLY 10 EASY STEPS AWAY FROM OSCAR!
1.) Bankrupt small, independent distributor via massive Oscar campaign. Failing that, proceed to...
2.) Cash in King Kong residual checks to pay for FYC advertisements from Kinko's.
3.) To avoid getting sent straight to VOD, attach entire film as a "trailer" to another film people actually want to see. And then...
4.) Try to do it Lahti-style and win Academy Award for Best Short Film.
5.) Avoid telling a story that everyone already knows by adding exciting details and/or gratuitous editing.
6. Carefully and patiently weather the wrath of film critics/the royal family/the tabloids/Diana-maniacs for trying to add said details. (Good luck!)
7. Find all of the boxes with "August: Osage County" screeners and slip in self-made cam bootleg from premiere screening at Lowes...the hardware store.
(Not Loews, the movie theater -- too expensive!)
8. Trick octogenarian Oscar voters into thinking that you are, in fact, a real princess. (Hey, it worked on Eva Marie Saint!)
9. On Oscar night, have camera crews come to Nicole's house, Joan Crawford-style, so you can win and keep your day job.
She is ridiculous.
I guess there's rumors she's marrying Taylor this summer?
Between that and speculation that Rihanna's knocked up, I guess that's fun.
