A few days ago, HuffPo Entertainment posted an interview with Evangeline Lilly from the premiere of the third and last Hobbit installment. She has a lot of nice words about working with Peter Jackson and being fortunately typecast in kick-ass female roles. She spoke of wanting to continue filling roles in which her characters are “strong because of their compassion, they’re strong because of their vulnerability, they’re strong because of their emotion and they’re strong in spite of their fear.

After being asked about her song "Swine" on the Howard Stern Show, Lady Gaga, the queen of all things strange and beautiful, claimed a record producer raped her when she was just nineteen years old. "Swine," a song associated with the infamous bull riding and vomiting during Gaga's 2014 SXSW performance, was inspired by the strife she felt years after feeling demoralized.
During the interview Lady Gaga said, "You could never, ever degrade [me] as much as I could degrade myself, and look how beautiful it is when I do. Read More

Ahh, festival season: the most daunting, wonderful, expensive social event of the season.

The self-taught photographer Danny Evans is fascinated by the ways in which celebrities are photoshopped and airbrushed onto billboards and magazine covers. In an attempt to subvert the image of the affluent, picture perfect star, he photoshops images of celebrities, reimagining them the average American citizen. In his words, his “make-unders” reveal “what’s left after Hollywood has been scrubbed off,” positioning pop culture icons within an almost stereotypical suburban landscapes, with outdated hairdos and all.

It was just a few years ago that Lady Gaga owned your soul. Following the release of The Fame Monster in 2009, she was absolutely unavoidable--it was just a matter of deciding whether you wanted a machine-gun bra or meat dress in your face. Her every move, every outfit, and every wig-change prompted a CNN Breaking News Alert.
Then what? As "weird" became the new music industry status-quo, Gaga scrambled to pile as many food groups onto her being as possible. But by the time she released Born This Way in 2011, her whole act felt just too shtick-y to bear. Read More

This past Saturday’s SNL was a step up from the show’s material of late, with host Lady Gaga proving to be an actually pretty funny lady. What would have made the show even better, however, is this crazy unaired skit titled, “Female Sea Captains,” which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like.
Watch Lady Gaga and the rest of the kick-ass SNL ladies sail the high seas (sort of), mock traditional female stereotypes, and speak in crazy accents below. Read More

Lady Gaga and performance artist Marina Abramovic share one undeniable strength: the creative powers of their own bodies. Abramovic’s physical presence is almost always at the core of her work. She has passively stood before an audience allowing them to aim at her anything from roses to guns; she has masturbated beneath museums. In The Artist Is Present, she simply sat and stared at audience members across a table.
Similarly, Lady Gaga, who collaborated with Abramovic in her album ArtPop, needs only to exist in order to move an audience. Read More
