Last Lap: Is Lady Gaga Railing Against The Music Business?

Ledisi brings her soulful sounds to Big Morning Buzz Live, Arcade Fire engage in some Canadian political humor, and Tyga talks about his latest collaboration with Chris Brown.

  • During her keynote at SXSW, Lady Gaga tried to argue that corporate interests shouldn’t stifle music artists’ creativity. The Mother Monster claims that she’s been forced into a box, when all she wants to do is reach out to fans. And in her case, reaching out includes being vomited on during a concert. [The Guardian]
  • If you needed a funky little jolt for the weekend, Big Morning Buzz Live has you covered. Watch as R&B songstress Ledisi lifts our spirits with her song, “I Blame You.”
  • During a show in Toronto, Arcade Fire tossed some humor at their fellow Canadians. The band brought out a tambourine player wearing headgear featuring images of troubled Toronto mayor Rob Ford. Anyone think it was actually the mayor under there, perhaps after a drug binge? [Pitchfork]
  • Tyga and Chris Brown are gearing up for the sequel of their 2010 mixtape, Fan Of A Fan. So what do the rapper and the R&B star have in store for fans? [MTV News]
