Lady Gaga isn’t ashamed of admitting that she doesn’t like to wear underwear. “I don’t really go in for wearing underwear,’ the Daily Star quoted her as saying. “Not very much, no. It’s rare that I decide to put some on. There’s no point really – and I’m not ashamed of it,” she added. Meanwhile, the ‘Poker Face’ hitmaker continued her shock tactics as she stepped out in a bizarre see-through red lace catsuit teamed up with eye mask and eccentric spiky hairpiece at the New York fashion week. The singer’s modesty was said to be hardly covered by a barely there red G-string and an almost-strategically placed ruffle on her costume. She revealed that her hectic schedule might give her little chance of finding a new man. However, ‘Poker Face’ hitmaker admits she is finding other ways to relieve the tension of being a single girl. ”I am single and a workaholic and very lonely,” the Sun quoted her as saying. “But I’m good . Me and my vibrator are very happy,” she added. Meanwhile, Michael Bolton has teamed up with the 23-year-old singer as she helped pen songs for his forthcoming new album. Her hit track Poker Face has become the most downloaded song in the five-year history of the Official UK Downloads Chart. The singer’s another hit ‘Just Dance’ is also said to be at No3 in the list. !”I am honoured to be the songwriter and performer behind the No1 and No3 songs,” the Sun quoted her as saying. Rock band Kings Of Leon’s ‘Sex On Fire’ is at No2, while the group’s ‘Use Somebody’ is at No4. Some of the other artists featuring in top ten are Leona Lewis, La Roux, Alexandra Burke and Snow Patrol.

Lady GaGa had a reporter at a press conference in Germany thrown out by security on Monday when a local journalist questioned the pop star about rumors she is a hermaphrodite. (In biological context, a hermaphrodite is an organism that has both male and female reproductive organs). Internet footage of the singer onstage earlier this year sparked fresh debate as to whether or not the hitmaker had both female and male reproductive organs, because a bulge could clearly be seen. GaGa has since slammed the rumors as “ridiculous,” but the controversy is refusing to go away, and she was put on the spot by a interviewer during the Berlin press launch of her new range of headphones. When asked by German TV personality Collien Fernandes if she had a penis, Gaga snarled, “My vagina is offended by this question,” before security pounced on the woman and escorted her from the IFA electronics trade show. Fernandes is dumbfounded by her harsh treatment and insists she did nothing wrong. She says, “I don’t really understand the fuss. It’s obvious someone would ask her this question after the picture was all over the news.” Lady GaGa’s Heartbeats line of jewel-shaped earphones was launched in collaboration with hip-hop super-producer Dr. Dre and Monster electronics.
Mika was a “weird” teenager. The Love Today singer – who is known for his outrageous outfits and wild curly hair – says his new LP, The Boy Who Knew Too Much, was inspired by his turbulent adolescence, which he now wants to forget. He said: “It’s still joyful pop music. I needed to liberate myself from my childhood – I was a weird, reclusive teen.” The 26-year-old pop star’s forthcoming album, the follow-up to 2007′s Life in Cartoon Motion, even contains a vengeful break-up song inspired by a bitter split. Lebanon-born Mika explained to Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “There’s a song called Rain, which was a break-up letter, but I thought it would be funny to put a disco beat behind it. It’s Continue reading →

Robert Pattinson hits the cover of French Premier’ magazine. The 23-year-old Twilight star is featured on the cover of the September issue of French version of Premiere magazine. Pattinson is shown wearing a Batman t-shirt and a worn-in leather jacket, both items that fans would find typical of his usual wardrobe. Pattinson did an interview with the magazine, where he discussed many topics, including his thoughts on being a superstar: “I was in a restaurant during a break at Cannes, and when I came out two hours later, 500 people were waiting for me at the exit. They literally had to carry me to the car.” Pattinson also told the Continue reading →
Arctic Monkeys have been blasted for their unfriendly attitude at the Reading Festival. The ‘Crying Lightning’ rockers – who headlined the music event on Saturday (29.08.09) – have come under fire for their insistence on a segregated backstage area and refusal to mix with other acts on the bill. A source told Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “At festivals most bands take the opportunity to hang out with each other but the Monkeys demanded privacy. “They had their own area set up away from the other acts on the bill, which was guarded at all times by two security guards. “Now they’re on their third number one album they can make any demand they want and Continue reading →
Having already conquered the Billboard albums chart, the fashion world and Israel’s obscenity laws, Lady Gaga has reportedly set her sights on dominating the buttoned-up world of adult contemporary. She’s written songs with none other than Michael Bolton. In an interview with London’s Metro newspaper, the 56-year-old Bolton — best known for his (formerly} flowing locks and husky takes on songs like “When a Man Loves a Woman” and “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” — said he has been working with Gaga on his upcoming album, One World One Love. The collaboration actually happened before Gaga went supernova — and it was apparently all her idea. “I was taking a break from production when my manager and the label tag-teamed me on the phone about writing with a young artist named Lady Gaga who I had never heard of — but they were raving about,” Bolton told the paper. “They said that she was a huge fan of mine and wanted to write with me. No one I knew had heard of her … but less than a minute into ‘Just Dance,’ I thought, ‘This CD is gonna be huge!’ ” So Bolton agreed to work with Gaga, and when the two finally met, he was taken by her energy and commitment … and realized right away that she was destined for greatness. “When I met her in the studio later that night, I realized she was not only about to have a big hit record, but Gaga was a superstar about to launch. … Her energy was so high and her focus excited me,” Bolton continued. “She reminded me of a young Madonna, with more exuberance and emphasis on the art rather than the marketing.” The Metro article does not mention the name of the song or songs that Gaga and Bolton collaborated on, but over the weekend, a track called “Murder My Heart” leaked, and apparently it’s the fruit of the duo’s labor (it’s definitely Bolton, and we think we hear Gaga on the backing track). Attempting to verify that fact, MTV News reached out to reps for both artists, but at press time, we had yet to receive a response. According to Bolton’s Web site, One World One Love is due September 21.
