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.
After Staten Island Borough President James Molinaro called Lady Gaga a “slut” for smoking marijuana (legally! In Amsterdam!) in public, another NYC politician came to her defense. Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringercalled the New York native “a social justice activist and a real leader for marriage equality in this country” on Wednesday. And yesterday Gaga thanked him for his support.
Meanwhile, we’re wondering who is going to come to the defense of Gaga’s parents’ Joanne Trattoria, which was recently panned by the New York Daily News‘ restaurant critic, who said that “most of my colleagues have portrayed Joanne as the worst thing since herpes.”
Summer 2012 may now officially be over (RIP), but twitter is still just has hot as ever thanks to these lovely ladies! Sexy social media savvy stars like Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga and so many more can’t get enough of showing off their hot bods to their adoring followers, and treated us to some sizzling pix this month. Adrianne Curry actually raised money for charity by offering to post scandalous pix, while Kim K just does it because…that’s what she does. Riri and Gaga debuted their new tattoos and Amber Rose debuted her baby bump. Folks like Miley Cyrus, Heidi Klum and Maria Menounos tweeted direct from the red carpet, but Courtney Stodden seemed to tweet mostly from her own bathroom! Sometimes the flashes were totally unintentional. Just ask The Newsroom’sAlison Pill, who “accidentally” sent a topless photo to her fans. At least she handled it like a champ! Fellow TV star Sofia Vergara also sent out a hot oops photo, revealing the extent of her wardrobe malfunction. It’s all there to see in the gallery below!
In case you needed to bring in a blog post to discuss with your Intro to Gender Studies class, feel free to print out this one! “I would call her a slut,” Staten Island Borough President James Molinaro said of Lady Gaga when unveiling a new anti-drug initiative yesterday. “This slut is influencing many, many children.” Um…we don’t think that word means what you think it means, James. We don’t want people encouraging kids to smoke pot either, but everyone in the world knows that word doesn’t mean what you think it means. Mr. Molinaro certainly isn’t the only one to get worked up over footage of Gaga smoking a joint on stage in Amsterdam, but he might be the most confusing. “To me, she’s not an actress, she’s a slut,” Molinaro concluded. “[I]n the pure meaning of the word.” So we’re assuming by “pure,” he also means “slut,” right? Slut can stand in for pretty much every word now, right? That’s how language works?
Meanwhile, Lady Gaga is also taking heat for…we don’t even know…putting on some pounds? Because everything is the worst? Our eyes could not have rolled further back into our skulls after watching the Interwebs flip out about photos of Gags looking heavier than usual. So what was Gaga’s response to critics calling out her weight gain? Just get more vulnerable! “Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15,” she wrote today on LittleMonsters.com while posting photos of herself dressed down and wearing undies. We love that the Lady would pose without her giant heels or cat eye make-up, but feel horrible that this is even a thing she has to deal with. Let’s all go raise our children in the woods where the Internet can’t reach them. Who’s with us?!? Oh, and don’t let James Molinaro see these photos. We’re pretty sure we know what he would have to say about them…
