Photos of the Day: Mission: Pittsburgh! Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes & Suri out and about in Schenley Park, Oakland

10 Oct

Over the weekend, Tom Cruise and wife Katie Holmes were spotted in Oakland’s Schenley Plaza njoying the carousel with daughter Suri. Zombiefest 2011 was also going on, leaving little Suri a bit unsettled. However, according to sources, Tom seemed to be in a great mood, waving to fans and onlookers as he spent the day with his family.

It seems that the Cruises have really been enjoying their time exploring Pittsburgh.

 

Happy 24th Birthday, Lady GaGa! See you in Pittsburgh, September 5th!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LADY GAGA!

Lady Gaga turns 24 on Sunday, March 28th. Here’s wishing her an (early) Happy Birthday!!

She already got an amazing birthday gift: Gaga broke Internet records this week when 3 of her videos boasted a whopping 1 billion video views EACH. (“Just Dance”, “Pokerface”, and “Bad Romance.”)

Her most recent video, “Telephone” featuring Beyonce is one of the most talked-about music videos in quite some time, with its 9-minute length, bad-girl feel, fabulously absurd fashions, and her nods to director Quentin Tarantino. With a Grammy and multiple other accolades and nominations under her belt, as well as becoming a larger-than-life force to be reckoned with, this hasn’t exactly been a bad year for Lady Gaga. (Aside from hermaphrodite rumors and a $30 million lawsuit filed against her by her ex-boyfriend) After all, she got to meet the Queen of England, perform with Elton John at the Grammy Awards, became Creative Director for Polaroid, designed Heartbeats headphones with Dr. Dre, and has become a gay-rights advocate, a fashion muse, and beloved international icon.

In my opinion, she is IT. The whole package. She’ll soon be the new reigning queen of pop – and this comes from a DIEHARD Britney Spears fan. Gaga, though, has something different. She’s a whole new animal, and if she doesn’t boot Britney from her role as THE pop star, she’ll at least share the throne with her. Intelligent, avant garde, artsy, fashion-forward, and certainly not shy, Lady Gaga is surely a super star. Girlfriend can SING! She’s classically trained on the piano, she writes many of her own songs, is close with her parents, started from the bottom performing and bars and burlesque shows, and one standout difference from other current divas is that she rarely if ever lip-synchs to even part of a performance.

Her shows and costumes are spectacles to be beheld, and I hear that her current tour resembles more of a musical than simply a concert. I do worry that she may burn out. OK! Magazine reports this week that Gaga collapsed twice in a mid-March shows in New Zealand (see video here) and that she’s overworked and that she is allegedly suffering severe exhaustion. Gaga did confirm her collapse onstage to a UK radio station and says that she was simply hot, tired, and working too hard at the time. She claims that her family “keeps her sane” and so I hope that, despite her absolutely grueling concert, business, design, promotion, and recording schedule, that she gets the rest and support that she needs.

Gaga, who is working on a 3rd album due out this year and claims it is some of her best work yet (how do you top THE BEST?) is planning on “going to the nearest bar….and getting very drunk” for her birthday this weekend, as she celebrates the age of 24 – no doubt with BFF Perez Hilton, her Little Monsters, and Haus of Gaga family in tow.

Below is a photo that Lady Gaga posted on her Twitter page to commemorate her 24th Birthday …. in her Birthday Suit, of course:


PSSSST…. Mark your Calendars! Lady Gaga’s “The Monster Ball” will be the opening concert at the new Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Sunday, September 5th, 2010. Official ticket sale dates have not yet been confirmed. Stay tuned for breaking news on Gagaloo!
