Surprise Little Monsters! Lady Gaga Has a Holiday Gift in Store for You this Christmas!

22 Dec

Lady Gaga just announced that, in the spirit of the holiday season, she will give her “Little Monsters” a present this Christmas Day.

So, what does the Mother Monster have in store for you as she plays Santa this year?

On Christmas, Gaga will “leak” a previously unreleased song off of her wildly popular hit album, Born This Way.

The track — a gift to all of her fans — was written and recorded on her tour bus, and will be released, unedited, in its entirety, and in its rawest form.

So, get ready, Gaga fans — just another reason to count down to Christmas morning!

Lady Gaga “You and I” – PITTSBURGH Version!

30 Aug

“There’s only 3 men that I’ll serve my whole life – it’s my Daddy and Pittsburgh and Jesus Christ!……So put your drinks up for Pittsburgh……Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh I love ya! Pittsburgh, I’d rather die without you…and I…” ~ Lady GaGa

I am a “Little Monster” — that is, a Lady Gaga fan. That being said, she got on my nerves BIG TIME by doing the Jo Calderone alter ego ALL NIGHT at the 2011 MTV VMAs (not to mention “Jo” stealing my girl BRITNEY’s spotlight during her lifetime achievement award….)

Anyway, despite my slight annoyance at this obnoxious character (please stop, Gaga. Please…)  this song almost makes up for it! It’s pretty sweet. Naturally, she did it for a handful of cities across the country,  BUT, it’s pretty cool that she chose Pittsburgh as one of them. According to the 96.1 KISS fm Freak Show page, Gaga is a fan of Pittsburgh because 96.1 KISS has broke a few of her singles — and, they were one of the few stations that she called in to when she dropped this one.

Enjoy – she makes quite a few references to Pittsburgh & Pittsburgh guys! Kinda cool.

 

Lady GaGa: You Either Love Her or Hate Her…I Love Her. Check out her new video here

5 Mar

Lady Gaga is a walking set of contradictions – and I LOVE it, because, after all , so are so many of us. Her well-rounded character makes her, well, as close to human as Lady Gaga can be.

She is deeply religious but also does and says so many things that blatantly go against her faith – after all, she’s imperfect like the rest of us…..and God makes no mistakes! She has been called a Madonna and Grace Jones  copycat, however, in many aspects of her life and her career, she is boldly original and often oddly unique. She understands the fame game and is both defined by it yet also the definition of it. She often practices celibacy while having music videos that are oft racy and sexed-up. More than just a “pop tart” like many of her counterparts are, Lady Gaga is deep, and very intelligent. Both shamelessly living her life in public and sharing her thoughts with the world, she’s also intensely introverted and private. She lives for her fans and the “character” of Lady Gaga isn’t a character or a facade at all – it’s just her. And I love every awkward bit of it

Nothing if not intriguing, Lady Gaga has sparked many a debate, and is one of those polarizing figures who you either love or hate. I love her, and the fact that I was both  appalled and amazed by her new video proves why. More than just a singer, Gaga is truly a creative mind and a real performance artist. If nothing else, she’s someone who knows how to keep us talking about her!

Feast your eyes, Little Monsters …. ‘cuz she was Born This Way:

Gaga’s New Song – A Little Too “Madonna?”

12 Feb

On Friday, Lady Gaga released her much-anticipated single, “Born This Way,” to surprisingly mixed reviews.

While it broke records for first-day airplay on radio stations across the country, some “Little Monsters” expressed disappointment for it not being Gaga’s best, and also for it sounding “too much like Madonna.”

What are your thoughts on the song? You can listen HERE.

Photos of the Day: Better STEELERS pics – Taylor Lautner or Lady Gaga?

10 Sep

So, I thought the Taylor Lautner + Steelers pics rocked …

But… Lady Gaga with a Terrible Towel? THAT is badass.

Which photos are better?

PS:  Here we go Steelers! Home opener at Heinz Field on Sunday! Who will be there for the game? Glitzburgh will! 🙂

Thoughts on a Hometown Girl : Christina Aguilera – Copycat, Sell-Out, or Neither? And the Gaga vs. XTina Battle

10 Jun

I’m kind of growing tired of Perez Hilton’s endless tirades about Christina Aguilera copying Lady Gaga.

But, the truth is, in many instances, he’s correct, and has a lot of “evidence” in his corner.

That being said, though, let’s not forget that our “Dirrty” girl Christina rocked the pantless look (assless chaps, anyone?) back in the day way before Gaga was, well, Gaga.

Additionally, have you seen Lady Gaga’s latest video, Alejandro? If we’re going to talk about copying, well, it REEKS of early Madonna.

I’m a HUGE Lady GaGa fan (even a bigger GaGa fan than XTina!), and, a Christina Aguilera fan, too – so I’m not calling anyone out on anything – I’m just saying….everyone gets inspiration from somewhere, so people like Perez Hilton need to stop pointing fingers. (After all, he’s going to make people turn on his “wifey” GaGa if he continues going on badgering other celebrities on her behalf.)

However, if we ARE going to critique Christina Aguilera’s latest efforts with her new release “Bionic” and surrounding performances, let’s do so constructively.

I’ll give my two cents.

Christina Aguilera is a true talent. Her raw vocal prowess is just about unmatched amongst her peers; her natural musical abilities are astounding.

That being said, she sure doesn’t show it with songs like “Not Myself Tonight” and “Woo Hoo.” While catchy, I miss her “Stripped” days. That album was and is one of my all-time favorites. She should show off her beautiful voice.

And her performance on the MTV Movie Awards?

Gag me.

Gross.

Borderline embarrassing.

Tacky, cheap. She SO did not need the childish and tacky gimmicks. It probably even made Britney Spears’ stomach churn. The flashing LED heart over her lady parts? (see left) Oh, come ON, Christina.

You SO were NOT doing Pittsburgh proud with THAT one.

See, Lady GaGa does weird and it is ART. True art. Not just someone “saying” something is art, but actual, meaningful, cultural, art. Christina Aguilera does weird and it was … THAT. Tasteless. Vulgar. Trash. (When she actually HAS the talent to back it up, and shouldn’t HAVE to rely on cheap tricks and gimmicks….so frustrating!)

Do you guys think Xtina’s just trying REALLY hard (too hard?) to stay relevant?

I think she should take her own hints, get “stripped” (vocally) and go “back to basics.”  (Corny puns, I know!) When she lets her raw talent shine, she’s right on point.

She needs to chill with trying to out-Gaga GaGa …. she is SO talented…and can still be a little bit dirrty while, I don’t know … maybe growing up and “not” selling out?

Why give Perez Hilton any more ammo?

Just some thoughts. I want to hear yours… I’m not trying to bash Christina because she’s good, in fact, what I’m saying, is that she’s TOO good for what she’s resorted to….

:: Sidenote ::   I’ve yet to listen to ALL of Bionic. So, when I do, maybe I’ll give you a more thorough review of the album 😉

PS: Christina if you’re out there – I’m definitely willing to hear your side of things! Glitzburgh loves hometown stories, so, if you’re ever willing to give a small Pittsburgh blog a shot, here’s your forum, we’d love to have you!

Gagaloo Update: Ms. Gaga will perform 2nd show in Pittsburgh… in FEBRUARY 2011; XTina in August 2010.

10 May

Attention Lady Gaga fans: yesterday’s blog post was accurate: my suspicions were confirmed this morning. Lady Gaga will be adding a 2nd Pittsburgh show to her Monster Ball tour. She’ll be swinging by Pittsburgh again in February, 2011. Tickets go on sale THIS FRIDAY, May 14th, 2010. Her September 5th show is already sold out — and sold out in under one minute — so if you’re attempting to get tickets this week, be prepared – for you’ve been forewarned. (Just a sidenote: 96.1 KISS fm will also be giving away tickets all week long, so you can also tune in to them for your chance, as well. Gaga’s camp certainly isn’t giving us fans much of a chance to prepare to have to spring for a ticket! I mean, what’s the rush? The 2nd show’s like 9 months away! Sheesh!)

Additionally, today Christina Aguilera also confirmed her tour dates for her Bionic tour. It turns out that the Wexford gal will be performing at Pittsburgh’s First Niagra Pavilion on August 3rd, 2010. Tickets for her show will go on sale May 21st and will surely be (sorry XTina) in lesser demand than Gaga’s.

RUMOR HAS IT: Lady Gaga to Add 2nd Show in Pittsburgh? Christina Aguilera concert, too?

9 May

Lady Gaga to add another Pittsburgh concert date!

Christina Aguilera – coming soon to a city near you?

Pop superstar Lady Gaga sold out Pittsburgh in record time. Many fans were unable to get tickets, leaving a lot of frustrated and disappointed “Little Monsters” in the city of Pittsburgh.

However, Gaga monsters can rejoice! Rumors have it that Gaga has rearranged her Monster Ball tour schedule and will be adding a 2nd Pittsburgh show to the lineup. Tweets from Consol Energy Center talk about a BIG concert announcement tomorrow (Monday, May 10th) and teasers on 96.1 KISS fm allude to a Lady Gaga concert announcement on tomorrow’s Morning Freak Show with Mikey and  Big Bob.

Additionally, as of yesterday, sources have already let it slip that Gaga will, in fact, be performing more than one show in Da’ Burgh this fall.

Here’s hoping! Stay tuned for more Gagalicious news.

Pssst… PS: Pittsburgh girl Christina Aguilera will be making a concert announcement soon, too, to promote her new album Bionic and the coinciding tour. She certainly won’t be leaving out her hometown, either, so stay tuned for news about XTina in Da’ Burgh. (According to Oprah, some tickets for XTina’s world tour will begin to go onsale 5/21/2010.)

Lady GaGa Sells Out Pittsburgh in Record Time! Under 2 Minutes!

10 Apr

Pop-sensation and all around fierce-and-fabulous Lady GaGa has sold out Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center in record time!

Local Pittsburgh news stations – and Gaga’s BFF / Celebrity Gossip Guru, blogger Perez Hilton – reported yesterday that GaGa sold out the new Pittsburgh venue for her September 5th show in under 2 minutes! That’s about 19,000 seats! Tickets went on sale at 10:00am EST and were gone by 10:02.

Tickets are now going for $1500 on ticket brokering websites such as StubHub.com. Many fans are disappointed that they didn’t get tickets. (I, personally, know about 8 people who tried from 9:55 a.m. all the way until 11am – phone and Ticketmaster.com – with no luck at all.) Hopefully, more seats will be released closer to the show, or, GaGa’s “Little Monsters” will SOMEHOW, some way, be able to find tickets on eBay, Craigslist, and the like at a lower rate.

If anyone wants to hook ME up with tickets…..let me know 😉

Gaga for GaGa! Pittsburgh Monster Ball Tickets on Sale Tomorrow!

8 Apr

Tickets for Lady Gaga’s much-buzzed-about “Monster Ball” Tour go on sale for Pittsburgh TOMORROW, April 9th, 2010.

You can get them from Ticketmaster at 10am – but, be forewarned: it is definitely a hot ticket. Shows in other cities have sold out in 20 minutes or less, and the better the seats, the heftier the pricetag.

However, according to fans and critics alike, it is WELL worth it.(Of course, as a Gaga superfan, I MAY be slightly biased…but hey, I’m just telling you what just about every review I’ve read has said, too!) The show is apparently a spectacle to beheld, like anything Gaga does. It entails many costume changes, dancing, elaborate sets, a complete musical storyline, a pop-art, avant-garde, haute-couture, in-your-face undertone, and, unlike many of her peers and predecessors, LIVE singing!

No lip-synching from this gal.

While Britney’s 2009 “Circus” was definitely one of the biggest and most over-the-top concerts in recent memory, her sexy dance moves, catchy tunes, superstardom, and cutesy costumes can’t make up for one thing and that is actual raw, live, amazing vocal performances.

Lady Gaga’s concert will be the first in the new Consol Energy Center. Today marked the last regular-season home game for the Pittsburgh Penguins at the soon-to-be-defunct Mellon Arena.

Will YOU be getting tickets tomorrow? Let me know! And, GOOD LUCK, “Little Monsters!”
