Huffington Post - 5 months
Lady Gaga is a shining example of resilience in an unforgiving pop music world, and in an age where second chances can be hard to come by, the 30-year-old singer is proving she's as ready as ever to make her mark in 2017.

Let's Put 'Artpop' Behind Us And Appreciate Lady Gaga's 'Perfect Illusion' Music Video
Huffington Post - 5 months
In case you didn’t hear the global gay gasp that occurred at approximately 9:50 p.m. on Tuesday night, Lady Gaga has a new music video for “Perfect Illusion,” the lead single off the singer’s fifth studio album, “Joanne.” Released during the premiere of Fox’s “Scream Queens” (touché, Ryan Murphy, touché), our queen has officially entered a new era. Gone are the “Artpop” days of Botticelli clam shells, Jeff Koons paintings and misguided R. Kelly collaborations. Gaga’s new aesthetic? Rocker tees, ponytail moments that keep Ariana Grande up at night, microphone twirls and short shorts that would make Daisy Duke fret about a yeast infection.  Directed by longtime friend Ruth Hogben, the music video finds the singer stripped down and channeling her inner rock goddess. Set in the desert with a mosh pit full of grunged youth and collaborators Mark Ronson, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, and BloodPop, this is Gaga like we’ve never seen her before.  It’s a step in the ...

Rejoice! Lady Gaga Confirms Release Date For New Album 'Joanne'

Little Monsters, rejoice! Lady Gaga has just revealed the release date and title of her new album.  “Joanne” ― named as a tribute to her late aunt, and as a nod to her own middle name ― will be the singer’s fifth album, and will be released on Oct. 21. Gaga made the announcement on Apple Radio’s Beats 1 on Wednesday. She also shared the news and the album cover with her followers on social media.  The image is a far cry from 2013’s Jeff-Koons-designed “Artpop” cover.

Lady Gaga Drops 'Perfect Illusion,' Her First New Song In Nearly A Year
Huffington Post - 6 months
