Lady Gaga has shaved her head as a tribute to her friend's late mother.

The "Born This Way" singer unveiled her dramatic new hairdo on Twitter last night, explaining it was to honor her close friend Terry Richardson's mum Annie Lomax, who passed away yesterday aged 74. The eccentric pop star posted a photograph of the back of her head on the social network, revealing a large shaved section at the bottom, along with a caption which references her new track "Princess D.I.E," a tribute to the late Princess Diana. "I did it for u Terry. I'm sorry about ure mommy. She has princess die, but were all princess high. (sic)" she wrote.

Adele to Sing Closing Credits for James Bond?

AdeleAdele is rumored to be recording a song for the new James Bond film.

The "Someone Like You" singer was spotted at Abbey Road studio earlier this month, where the soundtrack for Skyfall is being produced, with producer Paul Epworth. Adele, 24, hinted last year on The Jonathan Ross Show she'd been offered the 007 spot and Chris Cornell, who recroded the theme song for Casino Royale, thinks that she is the "perfect choice."

"I can't think of a better one. She's phenomenal and it's nice, in a day and age where so many vocals are fixed by computers, that the biggest album of last year was somebody who sings for real," Cornell told MTV News.

It is thought Adele could be recording a special track to be played over the film's closing credits. The process of choosing the title song for a James Bond film is thorough, with several artists each recording their own song and submitting them to the producers, who then make a decision on which one to have.

Britney Spears ‘Electrified’ by X Factor

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Prime Time, Reality, FOX, Gossip,

Britney SpearsBritney Spears finds judging on X Factor "electrifying."

The "Hold It Against Me" hitmaker - who joined the show alongside Demi Lovato after Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul were sacked after one season - admits she was terrified when she first signed up but eventually got into the rhythm of the talent search. "I was really nervous. You have all these people behind you and you know they're rooting on you. It's a really exciting, electrifying thing to do," she said, speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Speaking about her judging style, Britney says she learns from the show's head judge Simon Cowell and always tries to be honest. "I used constructive criticism. I learned from the best. I prefer to be honest. I think that's the best way to go. I wouldn't want to be told something and then waste seven years of my life. I feel like it's the thing to do," she added.

However, Simon - who judged the UK version of the show before heading up the US adaptation - was shocked at how quick she made her decisions about wannabe pop stars. "I've never heard someone say no to contestants to quickly in my entire life."


Lady Antebellum Record a Christmas Album

Lady AntebellumLady Antebellum have recorded a Christmas album.

The country group - made up of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood - is following up Own The Night with a festive LP entitled On This Winter's Night, which will be released on October 22. It will feature 11 traditional Christmas songs and one original song.

Dave reveals the album was recorded in the summer, and to get into a holiday spirit they decorated the studio: "We recorded this album in two sections, but both times were in the summertime. It is always weird to be in the studio working on Christmas music in June and July, so we decorated the entire studio, we really did. We brought out lights, fake trees and decorated the place to get in the Christmas spirit. You'd leave the studio, and it'd be 100 degrees out in Nashville, but nonetheless, a great experience."

Avril Lavigne Album Almost Ready

Avril LavigneAvril Lavigne is putting the finishing touches to her new album.

The "Complicated" singer has been working with Nickelback's Chad Kroeger - now her fiance - on her fifth album, and is currently at the stage of mixing the tracks. "We're in the mixing process now and I expect to release it very soon. I'd like to get it out this year, but time seems to be flying. If we don't, it will be [beginning] of the new year. She worked with Chad Kroeger and they did a really good record," L.A. Reid, boss of Avril's label, Epic Records, told Billboard.

Avril, 27, and Chad, 37, met when they started working on her album together and dated for six months before getting engaged. Chad has said he feels like the "luckiest person alive" to be with Avril, and admitted he knew their working partnership was turning into something else: "I knew I was falling for her. It was incredibly powerful and something I'll never forget. I feel like the luckiest person alive because I get to be with my best friend every day."

The True Blood actress and her husband Stephen Moyer welcomed the pair of babies a few weeks early, but both are delighted - although neither the names nor the sex has been confirmed.

The babies were born a few weeks early, but are in good health and mom and dad are overjoyed," a representative said.

Stephen - who already has children Billy and Lilac from a previous relationship - recently said he having two more kids in addition to his own would be "crazy," but he was looking forward to it: "I love my kids beyond anything. They're the best things ever, and having two more is just going to be even more crazy, but that's cool!"

Anna claimed she was looking forward to settling down with the pair and being a "nesty" parent. "I have a side that's very nesty. And another that thinks, 'Let's lock up the house and go away for five months,'" she said.
