Funky pop band Metronomy has released a remix of Lady Gaga's "You and I." They've ditched Gaga's usual guitars-and-drums sound and replaced it with some mellowed out electronic goodness. A more haunting version of the song, if I may. Read More

Months after the most powerful known earthquake to hit Japan, the country continues to suffer. Tourism in Japan is taking a hard hit.

The Music Video for Lady Gaga's new single has leaked! Thank God for the internet. This song, is like some bizarre fan-fiction that Stefani Germanotta wrote while she was in her bible studies class at Catholic School. It's real weird.

I love how she seeks to express herself, combining her musical talents with fashion, theater, and Dadaism to create something interesting and new.

Former Bust intern, Buffi Jashanmal, was one of the designers called in to help design seven dresses for Lady Gaga’s upcoming music video. Avant-garde fashion label House of Diehl was asked to make the dresses in only five days, and Buffy was called in to help complete the nearly impossible task. Some designers pay up to $100,000 for Gaga to wear their clothes, so this is a huge deal for unknown fashion designers looking for a big break.
The designers weren’t given any details about the video, which will be for a song off Gaga’s new album, “Born This Way”. Read More
