As many loyal Lady Gaga fans know, her music video for her second single featuring R. Kelly ‘Do What U Want’ has still not been released. The always outrageous performer recently explained in a an interview about the delay and what really happened: Read below!
Put your hands up, make ’em touch: Lady Gaga is the ruler of Billboard.com’s 2013 Readers’ Poll, which allowed pop music fans far and wide to vote for their favorite albums, songs, videos and performances of the past year. Gaga, who returned in late 2013 with her “ARTPOP” opus, emerged in a superstar-laden field and claimed the poll’s top prize: the 2013 MVP.
On Thursday Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera Perform on The Voice Finale was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) On Wednesday night (Dec. 17), Lady Gaga ditched R. Kelly for a much shorter, blonder duet partner in Christina Aguilera. Wearing matching lame outfits, the two women teamed up for a special performance of Gaga’s ARTPOP track, “Do What U Want” on the finale of The Voice.
Mother Monster started the song on her own before Aguilera joined in at the 1:35 minute mark. The two then faced off in the middle of the stage before grabbing one another hands, taking a seat on the chaise lounge and sharing a bit of the bubbly.
Since 2010, when Aguilera took some jabs at Gaga in an interview with Out Magazine, saying she was “nice to look at,” it’s been rumored that the two were at odds. But from the looks of their handholding performance, things are copacetic between the two.
In an interview with E!, Gaga said she actually asked if she could perform with the pop diva. “I was really excited because The Voice called and wanted me to perform on the finale and I obviously can’t refuse,” Gaga explained. “It’s such an amazing show and I said, ‘I’ll do it, but I want to know if Christina will do it with me.'”
Last night, Lady Gaga and Belvedere Vodka, returned to Annabel’s for an intimate performance of songs from the Grammy® Award-winning artist’s new album ARTPOP, released in November. In 2011, the music and fashion icon held a similar private performance to launch Born This Way and both Belvedere Vodka and Annabel’s were thrilled to welcome her back.
To celebrate the launch of the chart-topping album ARTPOP and the third anniversary ofBelvedere Vodka’s partnership with (RED), Lady Gaga performed new tracks in front of an intimate crowd at one of London’s most prestigious member’s clubs, Annabel’s. The event supported the (BELVEDERE)RED Special Edition bottle which raises proceeds for the Global Fund, the world’s leading financier of programs to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa.
Lady Gaga performed ARTPOP, Poker Face, Dope and Do What U Want tracks, three from her new album, for the many VIP guests in attendance including Adele, Sting and Trudie Styler, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Emma Watson Bar Rafaeli, Douglas Booth, Eddie Redmayne, Jessie J, Chelsea Davy, Boris Becker, Bryan Ferry, Hayley Atwell, Michael McIntyre, Emile Sande, Tinie Tempah, Christopher Kane, Natalie Massenet, Arizona Muse, Richard E Grant, Philip Treacy, Suki Waterhouse, Sally Greene, Nicky Haslam, Irina Ambromavich, James Blunt & Sofia Wellesley.
Throughout the evening guests enjoyed Belvedere specialty cocktails and following Lady Gaga’s performance, rising pop star, Charli XCX, entertained guests with a special DJ set that carried on into the early morning hours.
“I think it is very important to join the fight against Aids and HIV and think it is wonderful that belvedere and Annabel’s are supporting and had this event this evening,” says Lady Gaga. “The more we can educate people the more we control the problem. I think it is really wonderful they are involved and think all major corporations should join the fight.”

According to VIBE.COM, “Lady Gaga is know for her grand entrances. From face nests to eggs, Mother Monster has always managed to be the show stopper on the red carpet. The 2013 American Music Awards red carpet was no exception. Playing off the disco-vibe of her new album ARTPOP, Gaga arrived to the AMA red carpet on a white, human horse. Gaga called her entrance a nod to the ol’ Studio 54 days, where Bianca Jagger famously arrived to the infamous New York City club on a white horse in 1977 for her birthday. Gaga’s horse was human, made up of several people who were inside the Trojan Horse-looking thing. As for surprises, she revealed that her performance tonight at the AMAs would be “American-themed” and include a cameo from R. Kelly, whom she danced with during her recent SNL stint.” The Lady wore head-to-toe Versace.
