A King with No Crown

By now we all know that Gaga is unstoppable. With 6 Grammy Awards, 9 Number-One singles, and a throng of “little monsters,” there is no questioning Gaga’s longevity as a pop icon.

With the release of “Judas,” the second single off her much-anticipated album Born This Way due out May 23, Gaga lays the framework for what is sure to be a different kind of pop album. In a recent interview, Gaga spoke to the critique that her new material is too heavy or dark for her mostly-pop roots. Her reply was simple: “I’m not going to put out music that people expect. I am not manufactured. And if you want me to be manufactured you can f**k off.” (more…)

Has Lady Gaga gone completely gaga?

The “Egg Woman” performed her much-anticipated new single “Born This Way” at the 53rd Annual Grammys Sunday night. She emerged from an egg/pod exclaiming that she had been “born this way.” Although the song is especially catchy and cool, Gaga’s performance was most definitely NOT! (more…)

From HuffPo

When asked about her Meat Dress — dead cow parts, to be specific on Ellen, Lady Gaga responded:

“As you know, I am the most judgment-free human being on the Earth. However, it has many interpretations, but for me this evening if we don’t stand up for what we believe in and if we don’t fight for our rights, pretty soon we’re going to have as much rights as the meat on our bones. And, I am not a piece of meat.”

Um, OK… but still…WTF?

I’m just hoping this isn’t a preview of her new fragrance set to hit stores in 2012.
Fingers crossed the world will end by then.

Well, maybe not. But he can take a pretty good turn with “Bad Romance.” In my head, Joe replaced John Krasinski as the skinny, geekish guy I wish I could jump. (Since John had to be all “mature” and settle down with Emily Blunt.) But maybe Joe Gordon would rather sub in as Gaga’s male counterpart. He’ll need a meat tuxedo.

Anybody know what he’s saying in French? Those aren’t the Gaga lines, and ‘learn French’ hasn’t yet been crossed off my bucket list.

Since it’s the summer, we’re allowed to forget which day of the week it is. Well, at least those of us who are unemployed.

Get a playlist! Standalone player

1.  “Billionaire” – Travie McCoy f/Bruno Mars

Gotta give it to the local grown (Geneva, N.Y.) native who wants to be a billionaire so frickin’ bad. – Mark Randall Walker,  P.R. Rep

2. “Waka Waka (Esto es África)”  – Shakira

I probably listen to this about 1 to 2 thousand times a day. FIFA World Cup soccer has taken over my life. ‘Nuff said. -Viviana Quevedo, Art Director

3. “Tell ‘Em”  – Sleigh Bells

Loud beats mixed with lead singer Alexis Krauss’ Lilly Allen-like voice makes this the perfect tune to blast in your car this summer – Mike Izzo, Opinions editor

4. “Baptism” – Crystal Castles

Commuting to work everyday makes me feel insane, especially in the heat. This song prevents me from melting/having a meltdown on the train. Happy summer! -Erin Scialabba, Gawk editor

5. “Bruises” -Chairlift

One song worth losing your v-card to… – Irina Dvalidze, Noise editor

6. “Black Dirt” – Sea Wolf

Anyone who has ever felt lost in a relationship or unworthy of love can relate to this song … or anyone who’s ever gotten dirty at a bonfire -Christina Sterbenz, Fact checker

Great for serenading other drivers as you’re cruising with the windows down.   – Liz Evans, Ad Rep.

8. “Speechless” – Lady Gaga

I get completely sucked into her daddy issues when I’m listening to this on the subway. If anyone can keep my mind off the homeless man sleeping on the seat next to me, it’s Gaga. -Nina Elias, Special Projects editor

9. “Darkness, Everybody” – Man Overboard

Reminds me of the days I could still find good underground acts online, instead of the “bling-bling” generation of pop-punk that’s churned out every summer. -Jose Terrero, Assistant Opinions editor

10. “The Suburbs” by Arcade Fire
I’m  stuck in the suburbs for the summer, and this always seems to play on my kitchen radio as I do my summer house cleaning.  -Cassandra Baim, Fact Checker

This song makes me wish my bed was a giant cold fruit – Irina Dvalidze, Noise Editor

Lady Gaga A Cappella Breakdown in U of O Dining Hall

I can never get enough of Gaga a cappella, and these Oregon boys are fabuloooous! Except for that one bad soloist near the end. I think he was nervous. Otherwise, the  all-male a cappella group On the Rocks worked it.

They sure give SU’s rockin’ Orange Appeal a run for their money. I propose they do a surprise performance in Shaw during the dinner rush.

For Lady Gaga and Glee lovers only

Even though The Grammy’s were a couple of weeks ago, I can’t seem to forget about some of these outfits. Here are some of my faves and some fuglys…oh and Lady Gaga, who is in a category of her own.

Glee superstar Lea Michele, who also looked stunning at the SAG awards in a teal Malandrino gown, was my favorite on the Grammy’s red carpet. The navy Romona Keveza one-shoulder frock with full petal skirt was darling and made me proud to be a Gleek (don’t judge me).

As much as I hate to admit it, I actually liked Miley Cyrus’ Herve Leger long-sleeved mini-dress. It fit her perfectly and she rocked it. Good Miley, maybe all hope is not lost for you (but it most likely is). (more…)

I’m not quite sure how this YouTube video escaped us this past holiday season–but rather late than never. Thanks to Dave Woody, future Jerk Blogger, for the heads up.

Taylor Swift, I don’t even know where to start. I used to love you. Yes, shamefully I was just as obsessed with T. Swift like every other teenage girl. The problem is, that I grew up and Swift has remained the same. While I can still jam out to “Teardrops On My Guitar,” I’m tired of her same old routine.
