Every year we look forward to a few events, functions, award ceremonies, albums and performances. This coming weekend music’s big night happens, E! Entertainment is throwing a launch event in South Africa on Thursday and Valentine’s Day is around the corner too. But one event we were never ready for (well sorta) was this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show. UK rockers Coldplay headlined the show, but they brought their pals Bruno Mars and Beyonce on just to funk it up a little more.
Now we all know Beyonce dropped her brand new single and video, Formation at the weekend. Not only does the song bring the queen back to her rightful place, but it also sends an incredibly powerful political message, and all through her creative craft and genius. This woman is unstoppable. So naturally she dropped the single just before her appearance at the Halftime Show… Hype it up baby, go! And boy oh boy did she deliver – and so did Bruno! Watch this, you’ll know what I mean.
Here’s a bit more from the incredible Coldplay too:
This is how Lady Gaga does the American national anthem… and nails it. Scroll to 2:20 or so 🙂
Another epic, cinematic piece of art from pop diva, Lady Gaga. The star released the video for her new single, G.U.Y. from the album, ARTPOP at the weekend and already it has been viewed over 7million times. What do you think of Gaga’s latest offering?
Lady Gaga is odd. She’s rocked the red carpet with a meat dress, arrived at the Grammys in an egg and now she’s getting puked on. Don’t believe me? Watch this clip as the star performs her track Swine at SXSW. Oh My Gaga!
This isn’t going to go down well (excuse the pun) with eating disorder organisations, that’s for sure.
Lady Gaga’s new song, Do What You Want features R.Kelly, but practically it’s impossible to have R.Kelly in all the places Gaga is touring and promoting. So she makes do… I enjoyed her performance on the Graham Norton Show recently, but it’s this performance that has grabbed my attention. Lady Gaga hopped onto The Voice stage at the finale to perform the track this week and she was joined by the incredible, Christina Aguilera. Besides looking like two giant poodles (jokes), the two rocked out and their performance was amazing. They should definitely do more together….
The MTV Video Music Awards are going to be massive this year. The fact that Justin Timberlake is rumoured to be reuniting with his ‘N Sync band maters; that Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus are all the talk of the town at the moment and that they’re all going to be there is a clear indicator that the VMAs will be #winning.
So in the build up to Sunday night’s big awards, there are several promos doing the rounds on the web. They’re awesome. Don’t believe me? Check them out:
Katy Perry has the eye of the tiger in her promo…
Justin Timberlake will perform on the VMA stage for the first time in six years and he’s getting a special award too!
Here’s Lady Gaga’s Applause promo:
Miley gets sexy:
Here are a few other promos:
The MTV Video Music Awards will go live to the world from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on MTV. For peops on my timezone, they’ll be on DStv Channel 130 at 03:00 CAT on Monday 26 August. Check your local listings for times.
It’s here…. The music video to Lady’s Gaga’s new single, Applause. The song is taken off her forthcoming album, ARTPOP which is due for release on the 11th of November.
Lady Gaga looks gorgeous in this video. I like the minimal makeup, natural look.
#Gaga has another #winner on her hands. #Applause.
UPDATE on Gaga’s latest news:
The star is set to open this weekend’s MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn, New York. She’ll take to the stage to perform Applause and you know she’s going to be bringing her A-game; the sort of thing that will make you go GAGA 😉 Cannot wait to see the performance.
Lady Gaga has been quiet for some time now, but she’s back and ready to ARTPOP the living daylights out of you. Entertainment mogul, Ryan Seacrest sat down with Gaga to find out more about her artistic direction for this album, her feelings about Katy Perry‘s new single and the subsequent ‘competition’ between the two and more. Have a listen.
