It’s on all of us to pitch in and aid those affected by Hurricane Sandy, but it touches a cold, hard part of our soul to see famous people step up and do what’s right following a tragedy. They just have so much more money than us! In addition to Bruce Springsteen, Christina Aguilera, Sting and Billy Joel reminding America to have a heart via song at last week’s Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together telethon, plenty of celebs did their part this week. For example…
If you don’t think these photos of Lady Gaga hugging and playing with a crowd of adoring baby fans proves she’s a pretty awesome lady…then we just do not know what to tell you. Open your eyes to reality, man! “[T]oday was the best day i’ve ever had, had so much fun,” Gaga tweeted about her trip to Cantagalo Hill in Rio de Janeiro. “I’ll never forget Rio, you lit my heart into flames,” she gushed. Meanwhile, if we were pop stars, we would never leave the comfort of our Hello Kitty portable champagne hot tub, let alone let our bare feet touch the ground. We’re betting you wouldn’t either, which supports our earlier claim that Lady Gaga is dabomb.com/thebestpopstaralivetodayifnotever.com
Gaga also (according to her Twitter account) sent snacks down to her waiting fans. “my lil Rio Babies PIZZA is coming downstairs,” she tweeted. “I feel like i slept in bed w you last night. every time i woke up i could hear you screaming!” This woman is a delight. Maybe we’re easily taken in by these kinds of P.R. opportunities (and that gorgeous peach hair), but it’s not like celebrities at Lady Gaga’s level have to do anything if they don’t want to. Gaga could make all of her music and perform from a penthouse and people will still love her, but it’s nice to see them getting some Gaga love in return.
Politically active celebrities are flocking to the polls in droves today to vote for their 2012 presidential picks, but they’re also taking to twitter to make sure everyone else rocks their right to the big V. While some folks like Donald Trump and Mariah Carey are posting pics of themselves actually doing the deed, others like Eva Longoria and Lady Gaga are simply showing their support for their candidates via tweet. In the weeks leading up to the election we’ve seen some pretty crazy endorsement stunts come out of the Hollywood community. Remember Snoop Dog/Lion’s instagram or Clint Eastwood’s chair? But it seems like today celebrities are leaving the political smashing and bashing behind and just encouraging us all to just get out there and vote it up. So no matter who you’re voting for make sure you get up, get out, and let your voice be heard! But before you hit the polls, take a look at how some of our favorite celebs are spending their Election Day. Find out in the gallery below!
Most of us here on the east coast had to stick hot poptarts down our pants to keep warm in the frigid temperatures on the way to work. But it’s good to know that at least Rihanna and Lady Gaga were enjoying warm weather! The dueling pop titans each posted hot bikini photo from some glorious tropic paradise. Riri was celebrating the completion of her latest album Unapologetic, which hits stores on the 17th!
“We havin a celebration…. WE HAVE AN ALBUM!!! #UNAPOLOGETIC,” she tweeted over the weekend. ”Man my album is complete, and I need a f**king drink and a roll up! It was quite the journey, but it’s all part of our story! #UNAPOLOGETIC.” It’s her fourth record in four years, so that’s definitely cause for some well deserved R&R!
Mama Monster also hit the beach over the weekend, but it definitely wasn’t as relaxing. Despite famously flaunting her figure in super revealing stage attire, Gaga claims she’s much less at home in a two piece swimsuit. I fear beachwear,” she captioned a photo of her rockin’ a Miller Lite bikini. “But a Starlight reminded me miller light goes all the way.” Check out more down below!
Halloween is finally here, and to celebrate we’ve rounded up the most scarily sexy twitpix from this October! OK, we do it at the end of every month, but today we’ve got a bumper crop of 50 (count ‘em!) of the hottest photos from the last month to light your jack-o-lantern. All of your favorites are here, including Queen of the Selfies Kim Kardashian showing off two smokin’ hot Halloween costumes. We’ve got super stars like Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Fergie, and super models like Heidi Klum, Kate Upton, Miranda Kerr, Candice Swanepoel and Bar Refaeli! VH1′s Couples Therapy star Courtney Stodden makes an appearance, as does former My Fair Brady goddess Adrianne Curry. But of course, lording over it all, is Twitter favorite Coco, back from her intrepid reporting on Hurricane Sandy. It’s all here in the gallery below! Make sure you take a look before you head out to trick or treat, folks.
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!
Ten years ago, if you wanted to spot a famous actor or musician in their natural habitat, your best bet was to take a class at Manhattan’s Jivamukti yoga studio. These days, the paparazzi are regularly stationed outside all the hot spin class studios in New York and L.A., ready to catch everyone from Katie Holmes to Maria Shriver sweaty and glowing after a tough ride. And now we can add Lady Gaga to the list of famous folks who are toning their legs while imagining themselves in a climate-controlled Tour de France. Impressively, Gaga took two classes in a row at the SoulCycle in Union Square, one witness told the New York Daily News. She looked slim, despite her recent claims that she’d gained 25 lbs. and was wearing hoop earrings and full makeup. She barely broke a sweat after the first class, and in the second, she was “hooting and whipping her towel around” when the instructor played “Born This Way.” Last week, Gaga tweeted that she’ll be working with SoulCycle to create a “Ride for Compassion” to promote her latest Born This Way Foundation effort, the Body Revolution.
We think Gaga could raise a lot more money for this Revolution of hers if she enlisted the help of these amazing spinners:
Jimmy Fallon and LMFAO collaborated on the very motivating spin song below in July — maybe they’d consider reuniting for a live performance?
We know Lady Gaga is competitive and ambitious and all, but we were surprised that she felt the need to outdo Justin Bieber in the onstage puking department, throwing up not once but three or four times in the middle of “Edge of Glory” and then finishing the song. OK, we’re just kidding that she did it on purpose, but we’re only making light of it because Gaga herself poked fun of her reversal of fortune, which happened on Saturday night in Barcelona.
“Was praying nobody saw but actually it’s quite a good laugh if u need one! Check out Lady PukeGA doing Swan ‘Vomit’ Lake,” she tweeted this morning, with a link to the above video, shot by a fan. “I still hit my routine, Mom!! Thank goodness for the Dorchester… I need some tea, I think I just cried a little watching that.” Read more…
So, remember when we posted about Lady Gaga and Donatella Versace hanging out together in Milan earlier this week? You know, when Gaga was inspired enough to take on the infamous Versace safety-pin dress, which Elizabeth Hurley wore back in the day. We had mentioned that Terry Richardson was around, but tried not to give him too much wordage, because … he’s Terry Richardson and we find him skeezy. But Gaga and Terry are close. Close enough for Gaga to shave off half her hair in some sort of tribute to Terry’s mother passing away. He’s also followed her around on tour taking photographs, most recently of her bringing back the meat dress in Japan. He’s even photographed previews of Gaga’s concert costumes. But, we digress. We thought that dinner between Mother Monster and Mother Versace was going to be glamorous and fun, in a way most dinners between OTT celebrities are. But somehow, and we think it’s because of Terry’s presence, some form of random nudity had to creep in. There’s a whole bunch of pictures of the two stars up on his website, but visit Terry’s Diary at your own risk if you’re at work, because of that rather NSFW photograph you see above. It’s Gaga hiding her breasts — with a just a hint of nipple of course — and the caption reads, “Donatella and Lady Gaga in one of Gianni’s bathrooms.” Why was she topless in a loo? We have no idea. But it’s not the first time Terry has photographed Gaga topless. Well, semi-topless. Their photo-shoot ended with the picture you see below, of Gaga sucking on Donatella’s thumb, with Terry look delighted and sucking his own thumb. Just your regular dinner, right? Yeesh.
Of course, Lady Gaga and Donatella Versace are friends. They’re both Italian (Gaga’s real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta shows off her Sicilian roots), are unhealthily attaches to their false eyelashes and extensions, and Donatella is basically the older, way more tanned version of Mother Monster. No seriously — look at them. It’s like they could be mother and daughter. Gaga was in Milan yesterday to hang out with La D.V at the Palazzo Versace and they were both OTT with a capital “O” — their grand entrance is immortalized in the photographs above. Again, this isn’t particularly unexpected. Gaga and Dontaella aren’t regular people. Check out Gaga’s belted, slashed red Versace number, though. Screw dem snarky weight comments! Once she got into the house, it seems like Gaga changed into another outfit. It’s the bedazzled silver and cream one you see below, and she even changed her hair to be matchy-matchy with Donatella. Joining them for the photo opportunity on the balcony was Gaga’s dog, Fozzi. Oh yeah, Terry Richardson was there too but you’ve seen the red plaid shirt and the thumbs-up pose far too many times for us to inflict him on you again. You can thank us later.
