Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have been making the media rounds promoting Cheek To Cheek, the joint jazz LP they’re dropping in September. While it’s clear the singers come from different eras in popular music, just precisely how big is the age difference between the two stars?
Nothing’s new. We know this. All of our favorite artists have inspirations, but the genius is in flipping the style and making it their own! Iggy Azalea, formerly Amethyst Amelia Kelly (seriously, she could’ve used this as her stage name), is the queen of “borrowing” from the luminaries that preceded her. Some are obvious; i.e. her Gwen Stefani influence is massive. Others are a bit more surprising — Traci Lords? Really? But the style-shifting Australian emcee has managed to make each of their signature looks her own.
After numerous delays, it looks like Cheek To Cheek, Lady Gaga‘s long-awaited album of jazz classics with Tony Bennett, is about to become a reality. The disc is set for a September 23rd release date, not long before the pop queen is due to wrap up her six month ArtRave: The Artpop Ball tour. Will the swingin’ duo take their act on the road anytime soon? Last night we got word from Mother Monster herself!
Lady Gaga plays a badass waitress in the new Sin City, Timbaland talks about Missy Elliot‘s new album, Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea and others go head to head in the new VMA promo and more on First Dibs.
With everyone in a kurfluffle over VH1′s new unscripted show Naked Dating (Thursdays, 9/8C), we got to thinking about nudity in media. Where’s the last place it’s totally acceptable to be sans clothing in public (besides dates, apparently)? Music videos. Yep, your favorite divas, R&B crooners, and post-punk bands have all dropped trou — and bras, and panties — in the name of record promotion.
When it comes to Lady Gaga‘s style, she seems like a true original. Hooded leotards, Kermit dresses, the meat frock thing — she was born that way. Right? No. One of Gaga’s most important inspirations might surprise you: Sir Marilyn Manson. The shock rocker’s debut album Portrait of an American Family turns 20 years old today, and it got us thinking about all of the artists it has influenced, from hardcore acts to Mother Monster herself.
It all started off innocently enough. Lady Gaga took to Facebook to give her Little Monsters a better look at her “vintage Mugler” apparel. Pretty sweet, right? But things took a NSFW turn when she ended up showing much more than just her haute couture style.
Get ready to start your day with First Dibs. Fans discover Kanye West was dropping rhymes way back in the mid-`90s, Lady Gaga could be the unwilling subject of a tell-all book, and Hilary Duff prepares to get back on the music scene.
We’re only half way through 2014 but there’s already been some memorable moments in music we just have to talk about. From Lady Gaga to Rita Ora, music’s hottest babes are turning up the volume on their hairstyles. With vertiginous looks, ultimate braids and every color of the damn rainbow, the past 6 months in pop music hair styles have been pretty outrageous.
