Lady Gaga has revealed the name of her upcoming third album-which we will hear music from later this year- to the world! But not one to just release a press statement, Lady Gaga has gone and marked the occasion by getting the album name tattooed on her arm and posting a picture of it on Twitter.!
As you can all see below, the album will be titled "ARTPOP", and Gaga made it known that it must be spelt entirely in capitals, so don't say I didn't pass on that important message! I know I might be too quick off of the draw here, but I am choosing to ignore the "ART" part of that title and instead rejoicing at the mention of the word "POP".
Hopefully Gaga has gotten all that phony-baloney desire to be deep and meaningful out of her system with Born This Way- she can try again, probably more convincingly, when she's a little older- and maybe now we're going to get the rightful successor to the pop masterpiece, The Fame Mons†er!
It is too easy for me to be cynical and shady here, so I am going to try- and probably fail- to stick to the facts. Having had a baby, reportedly starting work on her next album, written, produced, and directed a documentary about herself, multi-tasking Diva Beyonce has somehow found the time to take up a position for the United Nations as the Ambassador for World Humanitarian Day! The bootlicious one had this to say of the honour;
We all see the headlines and we think what can I really do to help?
World Humanitarian Day is an opportunity for all of us to work together to make a difference. This is our time to leave our mark on the world and show that we were here and we care.
Never one to miss a trick, Beyonce has also donated one of the songs- I Was Here- from latest album 4 to the cause, with money raised from its sales going to the charity. The actions of a true humanitarian or maybe more a shrewd business move to support and promote a floundering album? Suppose it could be both. I'll leave you to decide...Interestingly though, it's the only song off of 4 that Beyonce does not share writing credits, it was penned solely by Diane Warren, so she wouldn't have gotten royalties from it anyway.
UN Under Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs, Valerie Amos elaborated further on the special day:
World Humanitarian Day celebrates Humanitarian work. I hope everyone will pledge to complete at least one humanitarian action – however great or small – through www.whd-iwashere.org.
Together we can create an unprecedented awareness of the plight of people affected by crises around the world.Amen!
News about the founding members of the group Sugababes now. Having each left, or been ousted from the ever changing line-up of the group that now uses that name, the original trio have put aside their differences, reformed and are now going by the catchy name of Mutya Keisha Siobhan...really rolls off the tongue, doesn't it?
The good news is that the trio have managed to not kill each other in the studio and have apparently (sort of) finished their comeback album. Flame haired member Siobhan Donaghy tweeted
"With the girls in the studio. I think the album is finished!!!"
The bad news is that no new music is scheduled until 2013...booo! Check out the Sugababes first ever single, Overload, released in 2000:
Another day and another fabulously over-photoshoped picture of a Diva has hit the internet! By now you should have all recovered from the fictitious representation of Mariah Carey on the cover of her comeback single,
Okay, the real
The albums will be entitled A Very Special Christmas 25th Anniversary and A Very Special Christmas: Bringing Peace on Earth and will include songs by other artists such as Michael Buble, Jason Mraz, Train, Rascal Flatts and Amy Grant.
Proceeds raised from the sales will go to the Special Olympics, so it'll be a worthy purchase.
