Lady Gaga Dumps Manager Over Creative Differences

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music,

Lady Gaga and her former manager Troy CarterLady Gaga has split from her manager due to "creative differences."

The "Applause" hitmaker has parted ways with Troy Carter - who has worked with her since 2007 - just days ahead of the release of her highly anticipated third studio album ARTPOP on November 11.

"It's sad but also liberating at the same time. One door closes and another opens," a source told UsMagazine.com.

Troy helped launch the pop superstar's glittering career after joining her team in 2007 on the recommendation of Gaga's Streamline Records label boss, Vincent Herbert. The music manager even earned an Emmy Award nomination in 2011 for his efforts in producing Gaga's HBO concert special, Lady Gaga Presents the Monster Ball Tour: At Madison Square Garden.

Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney Split

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Break-ups, Rumors,

Lady Gaga and Taylor KinneyLady Gaga has reportedly split up with her boyfriend.

The "Applause" hitmaker has been dumped by her actor beau Taylor Kinney - whom she has been dating since 2011 - after he struggled to deal with her demanding work schedule.

"Taylor has told her she's married to her career and that he can't deal with dating Gaga the mega-star and all her obsessions and alter-egos. He loves the cool, down-to-earth girl but hardly gets to see her. Gaga never stops working -- she writes songs in the shower and dreams up new outfits in her sleep. She has a whole security team as well as several assistants with her at all times. Out of every month there's maybe just one night out of her and his crazy work schedules that they can be a couple," a source told The Sun.

The 27-year-old singer has been struck with a string of bad luck this year after undergoing debilitating hip surgery in February, having life-long friends turn their backs on her, and losing her pet dog Alice last week.

Kelly Osbourne wants to end her feud with Lady Gaga "like adults."

The Fashion Police host has reached out to the "Applause" hitmaker to apologize for acting "like a child" when the singer gave her mother Sharon Osbourne - who is a judge on the UK version of The X Factor - a birthday cake to pass on to Kelly, who turned 29 on Sunday. Gaga posed with Sharon and the cake after performing at London nightclub G-A-Y on Saturday and though Kelly - who lives in Los Angeles - suggested the gesture was a "publicity stunt," she is now keen to move on.

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Music, Legal Issues, Rumors,

Jennifer O'Neill and Lady GagaLady Gaga has settled the lawsuit placed against her by her former assistant and ex-best friend.

The pop singer's former employee Jennifer O'Neill hit at Gaga with a lawsuit claiming the pop singer owed her $380,000 in overtime pay. In the lawsuit, O'Neill claims to have been at Gaga's side 24/7, even to the point of having to sleep in the same bed with her in case she needed something in the middle of the night.

In her 200-page witness statement, Gaga called O'Neill a "hoodrat who is suing me for money that she didn't earn." Gaga continued, "The job was essentially a favor, and Jennifer was majorly unqualified for it." In her deposition testimony, Gaga stated, "You don't get a schedule. You don't get a schedule that is like you punch in and you can play ... at your desk for four hours and then you punch out at the end of the day. This is when I need you, you're available."

The court date was set for November 4, but it has now been ceased as the pair came to an undisclosed agreement.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues,

Lady Gaga with her assistantLady Gaga claims she is "completely aghast" at her former assistant's lawsuit against her.

The "Applause" hitmaker is being sued by her ex-best friend Jennifer O'Neill, who claims the singer owes her $380,000 in overtime payments because she had to spend 24 hours a day with her and share the same bed during The Monster Ball tour in 2010.

The 27-year-old star has submitted a 200-page witness statement to give her side of the story, in which she explains that she rewards her hardworking staff with perks rather than overtime pay: "I am quite wonderful to everyone that works for me. I am going to tell you exactly what ******* happened, so that the judge can read on this transcript exactly what's going on, which is my ex-best friend is a ******* hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn't earn. The job was essentially a favor, and Jennifer was majorly unqualified for it."

Lady Gaga also claims that personal assistants are rarely paid overtime in the entertainment industry.

Lady Gaga thinks people need to "lighten up" and leave Miley Cyrus alone. The "Applause" singer has come to the defense of the "We Can't Stop" hitmaker, who caused controversy with her salacious on-stage antics at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) last month, insisting Miley was expressing herself as a musical artist.

In an interview with talk show Watch What Happens Live last night, she said, "I mean, I just think everybody needs to lighten up and leave her alone. Because it's pop music. Everybody's entitled to their own artistic expression, and if you have a problem with it, just change the channel."

Lady Gaga Didn’t Miss Fame

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Features,

Lady GagaLady Gaga didn't miss fame during her six months out of the spotlight.

The "Applause" singer desperately "missed" performing on stage following her hip surgery in February, an injury which caused her to cancel the remaining dates on her Born This Way Ball; however, she didn't yearn for all the hoopla that often surrounds her life because of her massive celebrity.

"I'm really happy to be back and I do feel back, because even though I'm present in my mind as a person, I don't really feel truly alive unless I'm on stage. I missed being on stage. I always love seeing my fans outside, but I wouldn't say I missed the fame, if that makes any sense. I think what I've realised more than anything is that I'm really not in it for that at all."

The 27-year-old pop superstar - who performed for the first time since her surgery at the MTV Video Music Awards last month - spent a lot time watching television with her parents as she recovered from her operation.

Lady Gaga is the latest star to defend Miley Cyrus after her appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards. The "Applause" singer also took to the stage at the annual event and insisted those criticizing the "We Can't Stop" singer's controversial performance should "lighten up" and understand what pop music is all about.

"I don't like to pass judgement on Miley Cyrus. Generally, people need to lighten up about pop music, it's about entertainment. It is here to make you smile and make you happy. Especially in America there is an excessive dragging of female artists and I don't want to contribute to that. I do things that are polarizing sometimes but that's what it's all about," she said.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Music, Dating, Hook-ups, Rumors,

Cameron Diaz and Taylor KinneyCameron Diaz has reportedly been getting close to Lady Gaga's boyfriend.

Blonde beauty Cameron is currently filming new romantic comedy The Other Woman with Taylor Kinney - the "Edge of Glory" singer's partner of two years - and the pair are said to have bonded both on and off screen, resulting in a "stressful time" for the singer.

"This isn't going down well. Cameron and Taylor have clicked on set and are getting on really well. They've been hanging out and the news has reached Gaga's camp. It's been a stressful time for Gaga with this on her plate as she's recovering from hip surgery," a source close to the singer said.

Cameron, 40, has reportedly been spending lots of time with the 31-year-old hunk, including trips to cafes and restaurants during breaks in filming - and Taylor is said to have introduced the Bad Teacher actress to his family. "Taylor has the perfect excuse for going for days out with Cameron as they're workmates, but they're not just being close at work. Cameron and Taylor have been seen in cafes and went out for dinner. They were joined at the hip at a drinks party for [co-star] Kate Upton's birthday. Cameron also met Taylor's family as his brothers Adam and Trent have visited the set," the source added.


Kelly Osbourne: Lady Gaga Is a Hypocrite

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Rivalries,

Lady Gaga and Kelly OsbourneKelly Osbourne has reignited her feud with Lady Gaga, branding her a "hypocrite."

The Fashion Police star has hit out at the "Paparazzi" hitmaker for "feeding" off her army of fans - who are known as "Little Monsters" - and describes them as "freaks and geeks" after some of the star's supporters sent Kelly death threats last year.

"I loved Lady Gaga. I totally believed in everything she stood for, until I realized she's a great big hypocrite. You're feeding on the freaks and geeks to further your career?" Kelly said.

The pair's feud started early last year when Kelly suggested Gaga had been disrespectful to her fans for skipping the red carpet at the Grammy Awards, which prompted a negative reaction from the "Little Monsters" on social media. Kelly then continued the row later in the year when she suggested the "Born This Way" singer was pregnant due to a clothing choice on a TV talk show, and Gaga hit back saying the 28-year-old star should "defend others who are bullied for their image."
