Rihanna has toppled Lady Gaga as the most popular woman on Facebook.com.
Lady Gaga has seen off competition from teenage pop star Justin Bieber to be named the world’s best paid young celebrity.
After having Haley Reinhart perform her as-yet-unreleased Born This Waytune “You and I” on “American Idol” this week, Lady Gaga will return the favor next Wednesday, when she drops in to serve as the latest superstar guest mentor on the show.
Like previous star advice givers will.i.am and Sheryl Crow, Gaga happens to be in lead mentor Jimmy Iovine’s Interscope Geffen A&M artist stable. The singer, whose album is out on May 23, will be dropping in on the highest-rated program on TV as the buzz is peaking on her just-releasedvideo for the song “Judas,” which premiered on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Gaga will add yet another accolade to her many high-water marks when she wraps her nearly two-year Monster Ball tour in Mexico City on Friday night (May 6). According to Billboard magazine, once the final monster claw has been tossed in the air in Mexico City, Gaga will have put the lid on the biggest ever tour by a debut headlining artist. Since launching in November 2009, the tour’s 200 shows have grossed $227.4 million while playing to 2.5 million people.
Celebrities including Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato and Katy Perry have taken to their Twitter accounts to celebrate the news that terrorist Osama Bin Laden has been killed.
The news broke online earlier today, and US President Barack Obama confirmed that Bin Laden was dead in a live press conference.
Lady Gaga wrote on her Twitter account, “Just landed. Watching CNN, what a historical moment in the fight against hatred.”
Demi Lovato tweeted, “USA I love my country.. We made history today…. Wow….. #isupportthetroups… I don’t care who disagrees, I support the troops of the United States of America…. GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS!!!!!!!”
Her sister Khloe added, “I loved our Presidents speech. May God bless us all!”
Joel Madden from Good Charlotte simply wrote, “America!!! F$CK YEAH!!!”, while his brother Benji encouraged Obama to sing at his press conference. He tweeted, “Yo @BarrackObama you should do a little song at This news conference to celebrate! What do u say sir? give the people a treat!”
Katy Perry wrote, “AMERICA F**K YEAH, HERE TO SAVE THE MOTHER FU**IN DAY YEAH! #necessaryusageoftheFbombday”, then added “..Does anyone else find it strange that this is announced on May Day… I am releaved in some ways, but have a feeling of uncertainty now.”
Actress Christina Applegate tweeted, “Let me try this one more time…my heart raced when I heard the news. the terror he caused us was epic.the lives lost, too many..”, while sociate Nicky Hilton added, “After 9 years, 8 months and 20 days justice is finally served. #binladenisdead.”
US President Barack Obama confirmed the news of Bin Laden’s death during a live press conference. Bin Laden was reportedly shot during a U.S.-led military mission earlier on Sunday and his body is currently in U.S. custody. DNA tests have confirmed his identity.
The Al-Qaeda leader, 54, is believed to have been the mastermind behind the tragedy of 9/11, when two airplanes crashed into the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center in New York on September 11, 2001. Nearly 3,000 people were killed in the worst terrorist atrocities in the country’s history.
Pop singer Lady Gaga has likened herself to Beatles legend John Lennon – because she too is “perpetually unhappy” with her finished products.
The Bad Romance hitmaker admits she struggles with such strong bouts of perfectionism she finds it almost impossible to be satisfied with the final outcome of her songs – just like the late Beatles star.
She says, “I am perpetually unhappy with what I create. Even though I might tell you that (song) Edge Of Glory is a pop masterpiece, when it’s all said and finished there will be things I dread, and every time I listen to it I’ll hear them.
“In John Lennon’s (1980) Playboy (magazine) interview he talked about how he hated certain songs because of the way they were finished. And they might be my favourite songs, but Lennon couldn’t listen to them.
Last week, Elton John got laughs on “Saturday Night Live” when he said that Lady Gaga was the godmother to his son Zachary. “For those of you concerned that we are unusual parents, don’t worry, it’s not like we are the only two people involved in the child’s life,” John said during his opening monologue.”His godmother is Lady Gaga … which is ironic, because I’ve always said that Mars ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids. And Gaga loves Mars. She says Mars has good schools and great discos.”
