From today until May 26, GagaVille invites users to "execute Gaga-themed quests" and unlock songs from Lady Gaga's upcoming album, "Born This Way," which hits stores on May 23.

As Zynga announced last week, GagaVille is a marketing partnership with Lady Gaga and Clear Channel Radio. The game gives fans access to Clear Channel's iHeartRadio player, and an exclusive preview to the diva's upcoming album.

Fans who buy $25 worth of FarmVille game credits through Best Buy will also get to download the entire album for free.

In response to the snafu, O'Brien issued an apology to the competition -- and made other revelations -- in the message above.

Jay-Z and Coldplay get spun - Viva La Hova!

vivalahova

Yesterday, an email pops into my BlackBerry from the one and only Mick Boogie, talking about the latest mix he completed with Terry Urban, Viva La Hova. In it, they blend Jay-Z and Coldplay in a way that has to be heard to fully appreciate.

As Mick Boogie explains it:

“In addition to self-producing a few tracks ourselves, we reached out to some of our favorite producers in the game… from Jay-Z’s collaborator 9th Wonder, The Kickdrums (50 Cent, TI) and Cookin’ Soul (The Game, Dipset) to up and comers like 6th Sense, nVMe and Garbs Infinite.

After assigning all the producers samples and snippets that we felt fit their musical talents, we began the process of assembling as many Jay-Z vocal tracks as we could find.  As the submissions came back, one by one, we decided which Jay-Z verse would fit this particular interpretation of Coldplay’s sounds.

As we began piecing together the correct verses to match the correct beats, it became clear how truly amazing this project really is.  This is what real music is supposed to sound like.  The lyrical elegance of Shawn Carter, the vocal magic of Chris Martin, the finely tuned instruments of Coldplay, the creative visions by our team of producers, and lastly, our analysis of which Jay verse best fit each track.”

Grab Viva La Hova and tell us what you think in the comments.
