Lady Gaga Releasing a New Single

Lady GagaLady Gaga is releasing a new track, "Partynauseous," next month. The song is a collaboration between the "Born This Way" hitmaker and rap star Kendrick Lamar.

"I am so excited to announce that a record I've been working on has now become a collaboration with Kendrick Lamar for HIS ALBUM (sic). Kendrick Lamar and I are dropping the record September 6. It's called 'Partynauseous,'" she wrote on her Twitter.

Gaga explained her part of the song is based on an incident earlier this year, when she was banned from performing in Jakarta, Indonesia, on her "Born This Way Ball" tour after hardline extremists in the Muslim country complained her sexy clothes and dance routines would corrupt young people. "I wrote 'PARTYNAUSEOUS' about Jakarta, and my relationship with that country (sic). Wishing I could 'get high with the enemy' and make peace (sic). Once @kendricklamar + I started talking about life + his forward thinking views about love + hip hop, the song became something more (sic)," she added.

Tupac Skakur Closes Coachella Festival

The rapper - who was shot dead in a gang killing in 1996 - appeared on stage as a hologram to perform with Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre at the annual festival in California.

He gave a spooky rendition of "Hail Mary" before duetting with Snoop on "Ain't Nothin' Like A Gangsta Party," before leaving the festivalgoers with the line, "Coachella, I wanna say thank you for all the love over the years."

The Tupac hologram drew mixed reactions from fans, with one saying it was "wrong on so many levels."

Another person, however, wrote on Twitter, "This is dope," while someone else added, "I told y'all Tupac wasn't dead! (sic)"
