There are times that we look at Lady Gaga and she feels like an art installation. Like the time she launched her perfume “Fame” in New York City with a party that involved a “performance art piece” called “Sleeping with Gaga.” And she got a tattoo, live in front of all her guests. But then, right before we’re about to emit a very loud WTF, Gaga always reminds us that she’s in on the joke on herself which makes her so endearing to us. Remember when she threw up on stage in Barcelona? Most of you saw that because Gaga tweeted out a fan’s video of the incident and poked fun at herself while at it. It is with that same sense of affection that we read Mother Monster’s very un-monstrous interview with Stylist. We, especially, honed in on the bit where the singer opened up about her “Body Revolution” and what caused it. That’s because her being criticized for her weight gain made us a little sick and we loved the fact the she stood up for herself against those nasty folks quartering her for the extra poundage.
She brought up the topic by talking about her relationship with her fans first, saying, “I’ve realised I don’t have to do very much anymore but make music, because my fans do it all for me. They carry the message so far. Ever since they saw how much Born This Way could affect people, they wanted to do more and have that sort of space of kindness and compassion.” Of what inspired “Body Revolution”, she adds, “I was acutely aware of some photos on the internet – my mum called me and was like, “Did you gain weight?” – everybody was telling me about it, and I didn’t really care. But when I heard it was on the news, where they talk about wars, the economy crashing and the election – I just thought, ‘This is f— ridiculous.’ I mean, what kind of example is that to a young girl sitting at home? I thought, well I don’t really care if they think I’m fat, because, quite honestly, I did gain about 30 pounds.” See why we love her? It’s complete honesty and no bulls— with Gaga! And is she is bulls—, she’d let you know it. She also let in on someone who inspires her, and can we just say, we could not agree more. “Adele is bigger than me, how come nobody says anything about it? She’s so wonderful and I think her confidence is something I have to match,” she says. “She has set the bar very high for a lot of woman. I need to be a confident woman and just say politically active things when I can that are helpful to young people.” Better still, the two should duet!
Adele is a mom, Adele is a mom, Adele is a mom! We’re so excited for her as you can tell! Ever since she announced the news via her website, we’ve been waiting for the future superstar to make his arrival. The update read, “Im delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx.” Ours always Adele … that makes us so chuffed! The singer and her beau, Simon Konecki are parents to a baby boy, who made his entry into the world this weekend, reports People, which means she gets to cradle something other than her many Grammy Awards. A source let in on the news saying, ““We are all over the moon.” This is Adele’s first child, but Simon’s second as he already has a five-year-old daughter with ex-wife Clary Fisher. So now we basically want to know everything — vital stats, name, pictures, when he’s going to begin singing lessons etc. C’mon Adele … give us a name and tweet a picture while you’re at it! Congratulations to the parents.
We interrupt this programming to show you something that may be considered a little unusual around these parts, but nonetheless hilarious. We’re huge Modern Family fans and we know there are plenty of you out there, fanatical just like us. Best show, ever right? And we adore Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) and their little adopted baby girl, Lily — played by the super cute Aubrey Anderson-Emmons. She’s only 5 years old and already she’s an absolute rock star! We watched this video that went totally viral yesterday, of the tyke singing Adele, of all singers! We know, we know, “Someone Like You” is like the most amazingly popular song ever, yada yada yada, and everyone wants to sing it, and everyone has sung it in a drunken karaoke haze. But this is different!
It’s Aubrey, or Lily (if you like to stay in character), happily belted into a car seat, taking on the song like a complete diva. And you know what … she ain’t half bad at all. Adele would be proud! Forget that, Cameron would be proud, if a little miffed that his status as the performer of the house has been revoked. We’re guessing one of her parents uploaded it? The message under the video reads, “Aubrey is crazy into Adele right now which I love. It’s so cute hearing her belt her songs in the car. This is where she likes to sing the most. At first she didn’t know if she wanted to learn this song because she thought it was too slow, but now it’s one of her favorites.” Watch the video, you guys! Good job on the lyrics as well, Aubrey!
Get ready for little baby Adele! Today the British singer announced via her blog that she and Simon were expecting their first child.

I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx.” Read more…
