'Sex And The City 2' Stars Ask: Is Lady Gaga The Real-Life Carrie Bradshaw?

'She breaks all the rules; she's unconventional,' Sarah Jessica Parker says, seeing the similarities.
LAS VEGAS — With "Sex and the City 2" coming to theaters May 27, fictional fashionista Carrie Bradshaw is ready to once again rule the box-office. Meanwhile, Lady Gaga continues ruling the music charts, similarly inspiring gawkers and grins with her always unpredictable looks. Recently, when we caught up with the "SATC" girls, we had to ask: Is Gaga the real-life Carrie Bradshaw? "She breaks all the rules; she's unconventional," Sarah Jessica Parker said of the comparison, seeing the similarities. "Well, that's extremely flattering." Sarah Jessica is always ahead," added Kristin Davis, insisting that the 10-time Emmy-nominated actress (and two-time winner) is a lot like the chameleonesque pop star. "We love Lady Gaga!" "I have met Lady Gaga," revealed Cynthia Nixon, who plays Miranda Hobbes in the TV/film franchise. "And she is a big fan of our show." "I didn't know that!" responded an enthusiastic Parker. "I want to say one thing about Lady Gaga, which is, a year and a half ago, I was in an editing room working on a project and had already downloaded as much music of hers as I could onto my iPod. And she was not in the mainstream yet, and people [made dismissive comments when I'd play it], but I loved her." Nowadays, everybody claims to have been Gaga fans since she was just starting out — but Parker insisted she's always been a supporter. "The thing that I loved best about her recently was when she sat down at the piano at the Grammys and sang, and just played the piano," SJP marveled. "And you could hear how lyrical her voice is. I really hope she does an album just of singing with the piano." In case you haven't figured it out yet, Parker, Davis and Nixon (fourth musketeer Kim Cattrall wasn't able to make our interview) are as close in real life as their characters onscreen. And when we brought up the Carrie/Gaga comparison, we had no idea we would unleash such a torrent of super-fan gushing. "She's so musically gifted," Parker said. "It's not just the fact that she's an incredible performer and is shocking. She's got a beautiful ear." "Absolutely!" Davis agreed. "Also, 'Bad Romance' is a really good song to work out to!" "My son sang 'Bad Romance' for a singing contest," Parker said of her 7-year-old with husband Matthew Broderick. "James Wilkie sang 'Bad Romance' for a singing contest." "We need to see!" Davis said. "I tried [to tape it], but the sound didn't work," Parker sighed. "We could loop it," Davis said. "Yeah, we could dub Lady Gaga doing it the whole time," Nixon added. SOURCE: Mtv News

How Lady GaGa Become the World's Biggest Pop Star

Growing Up Gaga
The self-invented, manufactured, accidental, totally on-purpose New York creation of the world’s biggest pop star.

O ne year ago this month, Lady Gaga arrived for an interview in the dark, oak-paneled lobby of the Roosevelt Hotel, a massive Spanish-style place in the tourist district of Hollywood that was supposed to make the area chic but has largely failed. “Just Dance,” the lead single off her first album, The Fame, had reached No. 1 in Australia, Sweden, and Canada in early 2008, but in March 2009, she was still an up-and-coming artist in America: a few thousand MySpace plays, a generic website, and a short tour as the opening act for New Kids on the Block. Gaga had a video, though. “My colleagues at radio in those three countries agreed to support her if I made a video,” says Martin Kierszenbaum, the president of A&R at her label, Interscope. The “Just Dance” video, shot a few miles from the Roosevelt, features Gaga shimmying with a disco ball in her hands while her friends drape themselves on a couch nearby—though most of those people were extras, not real friends. She didn’t know many people on the West Coast. “I don’t like Los Angeles,” she told me. “The people are awful and terribly shallow, and everybody wants to be famous but nobody wants to play the game. I’m from New York. I will kill to get what I need.”

Before the meeting, I assumed that someone with a stage name like “Lady” (her given name is Stefani Joanne Germanotta) was going to be a bit standoffish—that’s the strategy employed by most nervous young musicians on the occasion of their first real interview, in any case. But I never thought she was going to actually be Lady Gaga. These days, very few artists play the media like Bob Dylan, or stay in character as Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh did in his early career. In the age of VH1’s Behind the Music, tabloid culture, and reality television, musicians are aware that they should show themselves to journalists in as much mundane detail as they can muster. “But Lady Gaga is my name,” she said, amazed that I would have thought otherwise. “If you know me, and you call me Stefani, you don’t really know me at all.”

Gaga eased into a brown leather couch with as much grace as possible given her outfit, a stiff white jumpsuit with a jacket cut from a Martin Margiela pattern, the enormous shoulder pads stuffed underneath the fabric extending toward her ears. At five-two and 100 pounds, with her hair styled into a mod blonde bob, she looked flush from a strict diet of starvation: “Pop stars should not eat,” she pronounced. She was young, skinny, and blonde, but she had a prominent Italian nose, the kind of nose that rarely survives on a starlet. (This was during Gaga’s “hair-bow” phase—that would be pre-hair-hat and pre-hair-telephone—and when I asked about the bow’s whereabouts, she rested her head on a pillow of her hands and said, “She’s sleeping.”) In the hallway near her table, families of tourists took pictures of one another with cameras, unaware of her presence, and she recoiled dramatically at every flash. “Oh, cameras,” she said, shielding her eyes. “I cannot bear the cameras.”

As we began the conversation, Gaga spoke carefully in a very odd accent—some combination of Madonna as Madge and a robot, an affect enhanced by the fact that she refused to remove her lightly tinted sunglasses over the course of two hours. “What I’ve discovered,” said robo-Gaga, with a photo-ready tilt of her head, “is that in art, as in music, there’s a lot of truth—and then there’s a lie. The artist is essentially creating his work to make this lie a truth, but he slides it in amongst all the others. The tiny little lie is the moment I live for, my moment. It’s the moment that the audience falls in love.”

Gaga was very taken with her new “bubble dress” at this point, and we talked about its unreality, the beauty of the imaginary. Everyone wanted that dress, but it wasn’t a dress at all—it was a bunch of plastic balls. “On my tour,” she declared, “I’m going to be in my bubble dress on a piano made of bubbles, singing about love and art and the future. I should like to make one person believe in that moment, and it would be worth every salt of a No. 1 record.” She dropped the accent for a moment now—the real girl, unartificed, was right underneath—and leaned in. “I can have hit records all day, but who fucking cares?” she explained. “A year from now, I could go away, and people might say, ‘Gosh, what ever happened to that girl who never wore pants?’ But how wonderfully memorable 30 years from now, when they say, ‘Do you remember Gaga and her bubbles?’ Because, for a minute, everybody in that room will forget every sad, painful thing in their lives, and they’ll just live in my bubble world.” SOURCE: nymag.com

Michael Bolton About GaGa "She is the epitome of an artist"
Michael Bolton is gaga over one of his recent collaborators. “I love her … I adore her,” gushes the 57-year-old crooner about pop phenom Lady Gaga, who cowrote the song Murder My Heart on his new CD One World One Love. “I didn’t know who Gaga was because her record hadn’t come out yet,” he says. “I had heard she was an excellent songwriter, but I didn’t know what it was going to be like working with her until I got to the studio and we hit it off. We became friends immediately and had a lot in common immediately … and the more I got to know her, the more I liked her.” On working with Lady Gaga: When I met her and she started singing these melodies and lyrics to me, I realized I had a real artist in front of me. Someone who can actually sing and doesn’t need to be AutoTuned to sound good. She was the real thing. And she was so excited about what we were going to work on. I said, ‘It’s got to be something that’s going to kill people when they hear it.’ She said, ‘I have this idea for a title called Murder My Heart.’ So that’s how it began. We worked from 8 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. the first night, so there’s no question about her work ethic. And we did the same thing the next night. Then we finished the lyrics in London. Her mom was in London too, so I took the two of them out to dinner. I remember her mother was a bit concerned whether her daughter was being hyped; whether the company was getting her too concerned about her career before her album came out. It’s funny; cut from that moment to four months later, when she obviously surpassed her mother’s expectations and became huge. That’s great. I love to see someone that focused who already has that vision of her career. People compare her to a new Madonna, a young Madonna, but I think she has the reins of her career more than when Madonna started out. She’s in on every aspect, from songwriting production to what the next video’s going to look like. She’s the epitome of an artist.

Lady Gaga's Early Career Analyzed In New York Profile
'She wasn't a diva at all,' one high school classmate says.
Aside from her meteoric rise to worldwide fame from seemingly nowhere, one of the most fascinating aspects of Lady Gaga's ascension to the pop stratosphere is how formerly unknown New York rock-club singer Stefani Germanotta seems to have known all along that this was her destiny. A just-published profile in New York magazine, written by Vanessa Grigoriadis and including an interview conducted in March 2009 — supplemented by recent quotes from people she knew during her early days, including songwriter/producer Rob Fusari, who sued Gaga earlier this month — the self-assured singer is depicted as already carrying herself like the pop icon she would soon become. "I don't like Los Angeles," she told the reporter, insisting that she be addressed by her stage name and recoiling from the camera flashes of tourists taking pictures of each other that she assumed were meant for her. "The people are awful and terribly shallow, and everybody wants to be famous but nobody wants to play the game. I'm from New York. I will kill to get what I need." Though her path to six #1 singles, millions of album sales and a massive stage show appears to have happened in a blink of an eye, Gaga, 24, said the process took longer than it appears. "I went through a great deal of creative and artistic revelation, learning, and marination to become who I am," she said in the article. "Tiny little lie? I wanted to become the artist I am today, and it took years."
It began on the Upper West Side of New York, where she grew up in a duplex with her dad, whose company installed Wi-Fi systems in hotels, her mother, who was a vice president at Verizon for a time and younger sister Natali, now 18, who has a cameo in the "Telephone" video. The sisters attended the small Sacred Heart Catholic girls school near the Guggenheim museum, where the Germanottas were a solidly middle-class pair mixed in with the outrageously wealthy and those attending on scholarships. She began taking day-long acting classes on Saturdays at age 11 and by eighth grade was landing the leads in shows such as "Guys and Dolls" and "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" at Sacred Heart's brother school, Regis High. Friends told New York that she insisted on being called by her characters' names even then, refusing to answer to Stefani backstage during rehearsals and performances.
Gaga also held down a job as a waitress at a diner on the Upper West Side during her school years, using one of her first paychecks to guy a $600 Gucci purse, a preview of her later dive into high fashion. Though some jealous older girls sometimes referred to her as "the Germ," the article says, most classmates remember her as being popular and not the awkward outcast she has painted herself to be in interviews. In addition to being a theater nerd, Gaga began her musical experimentation, starting a classic-rock cover band, performing at open-mic songwriter nights and cutting a demo tape of love ballads that her parents gave out as party favors at her sweet-16 party at a New York club.
"Everyone was playing her demo, like, 'Whoa, she's going to be a star,' " Justin Rodriguez, who attended Regis, told the magazine. "She was by far the most talented person in high school, but she'd do so many random acts of kindness, like saying, 'Your singing has gotten so much better, you're working hard and I've noticed.' She wasn't a diva at all." Like many of her peers, the article says Gaga had obtained a fake ID by the time she was 15, around the time she started dating a 26-year-old waiter and got her first tattoo, a musical G clef on her lower back. About 15-20 pounds heavier at the time, Gaga would often get into trouble at school for wearing inappropriately low-cut shirts, which reportedly earned her the high school nickname "Big Boobs McGee." After graduation, she briefly attended New York University, but feeling she was more advanced than the other students, she dropped out during her second semester to pursue her dreams of rock stardom. Her dad agreed to pay her rent for a year if she promised to go back to school if things didn't work out. "I left my entire family, got the cheapest apartment I could find, and ate sh-- until somebody would listen," she told the magazine of her early days. An EP of ballads as the Stefani Germanotta Band soon followed, with a dedicated fanbase of 15-20 people showing up at her shows.
A week before her one-year deal with Dad was up, Gaga performed on a bill with Wendy Starland, who introduced Germanotta to producer Rob Fusari, an early collaborator who recently filed a $30.5 million lawsuit against Gaga over claims he hasn't been properly compensated for the work he did establishing the Gaga sound and persona. After feeling uninspired by her rock-singer direction, Fusari said he decided to re-invent Gaga as a dance-pop artist and encouraged her to ditch her leggings and sweatshirt look in favor of something flashier. So Gaga began studying how to be a star by reading a biography of Prince, shopping at American Apparel, reading the new age-y self-help bible "The Secret" and cutting her skirts shorter and shorter until they basically disappeared.
A short-lived, $850,000 deal with the Island Def Jam label followed in 2006, after which she went back to square one and performing in small New York venues and go-go dancing at the club Pianos while wearing a bikini and fingerless gloves and opening for the band that is now her opening act, Semi-Precious Weapons. By the spring of 2007 she auditioned for Interscope boss Jimmy Iovine, who signed her, and after a makeover that resulted in her signature blonde hair and space-age-disco-diva look, the Gaga we now know was born.
"I believe that everyone can do what I'm doing," she said as things were starting to heat up. "Everyone can access the parts of themselves that are great. I'm just a girl from New York City who decided to do this, after all. Rule the world! What's life worth living if you don't rule it?"

Paramore's Hayley Williams Sings Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance' On Twitter
'Most fun I've ever had in ever,' she tweets about performing the cover.

Paramore singer Hayley Williams has one of the most entertaining Twitter feeds of any musician on the Internet. She regularly tweets her reviews of movies she has seen (she recently saw and loved "Hot Tub Time Machine"), rants about UFC events and exchanges inside jokes with her own band members, Nashville friends and boyfriend Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory. Though she drops the occasional Twitpic, her Twitter has been mostly a word-based experience. Until now. Over the weekend, Williams posted a video to her Twitter feed. "Feel a bit crazy posting this ... but you asked for it!" the 21-year-old frontwoman wrote. "My apologies to Miss Gaga. Love, your friend, Lady Haha." The link revealed a video of Williams sitting at a piano, adusting her hair and then singing and playing Gaga's "Bad Romance." Williams gave Gaga's hit a nice little remix, making the solo piano version into a cabaret shuffle. She seemed to take extra pleasure in the "Ooh la la" portions of the tune, rolling the R's and belting out the notes. The video came as a result of a tweet she sent only a few hours before. "Playing 'Bad Romance' on the piano and pretending to be Lady Gaga," she wrote. "Why haven't I ever done this before? Most fun I've ever had in ever." Williams is just the latest star from the rock world to take on a Lady Gaga song. She joins the ranks of Chris Daughtry, Weezer, Maximo Park, We the Kings and, of course, Eric Cartman of "South Park" fame. Could "Bad Romance" sneak into Paramore sets in the future? We'll find out when the group kicks off the latest stretch of tour dates on April 26 in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Lady Gaga Brought To Tears By Fans' Birthday Video
'I've never cried so hard in 24 years, from pure joy and unconditional love,' Gaga tweets.
When MTV News spoke to director Ryan James Yezak earlier this month, he told us all about the making of his totally excellent "Telephone" tribute vid and then, in passing, mentioned that he was also working on a special birthday present for his muse, Lady Gaga. Yezak was asking for "Happy Birthday" messages from his fellow Gaga enthusiasts, which he hoped to edit together into one singing, strutting birthday card for Lady G. At the time, it seemed like a pretty nice — if not slightly fanatical — gesture, but that was about it. Only on Sunday — her actual birthday — Gaga watched the video then tweeted about it, writing, "I've never cried so hard in 24 years, from pure joy and unconditional love. Tears still streaming." And suddenly, Yezak's birthday video became a very big thing. Which is good, because he clearly spent an inordinate amount of time working on it. He received submissions from nearly 150 of Gaga's biggest fans from all around the world (England, Malaysia, Germany, Brazil, Spain and Italy, to name just a few), then edited them together into one epic, nine-plus-minute message, filled with a whole lot of tears, some outrageous costumes and genuinely touching messages too. In the clip, Gaga fans thank her for inspiring them, for giving them courage to be themselves and, in the case of one fan, giving him the strength to come out of the closet. There is also plenty of singing and dancing, a whole lot of makeup and even a few special birthday wishes. It's a pretty touching thing and it's no wonder Gaga was moved when she saw it. And as for Yezak, well, he still can't believe that Gaga saw the video, writing in an e-mail to MTV News that the whole experience has been "pretty amazing," and writing on his Twitter account that "anything is possible."

Viral video: The rebirth of the music video
From Lady Gaga's edgy epic Telephone to OK Go's recent Heath Robinson-inspired effort, Larry Ryan rewinds the online virals of the moment
Ten months ago Ross Ching was a new graduate from film school in San Diego. "The economy had tanked, nobody was hiring and I had nothing to do," he says. "I had this idea for a music video. So I made something and put it on the internet." The video was for "Little Bribes" by the alt-rock band Death Cab for Cutie. He chose, in his own words, to "blatantly infringe upon Death Cab's copyright" and make the video without any endorsement. There are home-made efforts for famous songs all over YouTube, most are best avoided, but Ching's effort was a small delight: using time-lapse photography techniques, he shot visual representations of all 211 words used in the song's lyrics and interspersed them with images of LA. It took Ching 50 hours to make and cost about $100. In May, he put it on his website, Rossching.com, under the banner "looking for work". It quickly got attention. The music site Stereogum.com ran the video declaring, "We rarely post fan-made videos, but this is too good... Hire him!" Within days Ching was contacted by Atlantic Records, Death Cab's label. They had no truck with his copyright infringement; in fact, they wanted to buy Ching's work and make it the official video. By September he had been signed as a director at a production company in LA. The domino effect of Ching's efforts wasn't just serendipitous: allied to a good idea and some luck was a savvy understanding of the web. Before posting it online, he contacted people on Twitter who had large amounts of followers. He gave them a preview of the video; they in turn tweeted about it to their followers, creating a chain reaction. Alongside this low-level marketing he developed a template for videomaking based on endlessly watching YouTube, all aligned around reducing the temptation for viewers to move on to other online distractions. First, the video should have "something within the first ten seconds that will make you want to watch it past the first ten seconds," he explains. "A lot of people just look at the first ten seconds and then just click away." Next, he looked at ways to sustain interest throughout, as "you're bound to hit boring parts in a video." Finally, he used a song that came in at the three-minute mark – the shorter the video, the greater chance that people will watch it to the end. On a higher budget than Ching, but still at the smaller end of the spectrum, is the video for Hot Chip's latest single, "I Feel Better", directed by the comedian Peter Serafinowicz. In the first ten seconds, the electropop group are humorously re-imagined as a JLS-like boyband. Over the next three minutes, the video takes numerous strange and surreal turns. Like Ching, Serafinowicz, who has over 300,000 followers on Twitter, was able to create a swift online buzz for the video. Previously he had also utilised Twitter while shooting the video to recruit extras for the crowd scenes. On the day it was released in mid March, there was an instant receptive audience. It also received glowing attention from the likes of Pitchfork.com, Stereogum and New York Magazine. The video has been viewed half-a-million times on YouTube alone. "It's very difficult to succeed in going viral, so we're frequently seeing cool bands team up with provocative comedic directors like Tim & Eric and Peter Serafinowicz," says Scott Lapatine, editor-in-chief of Stereogum. "Music discovery now happens online, and we live in a meme culture, so a clever video is one effective way to break an act." The US pop-rock band OK Go know their way around a clever video. In 2006, for their single "Here It Goes Again", they created an ingenious promo featuring the band in a meticulously choreographed dance on treadmills. It has been viewed 50 million times on the band's official YouTube channel. There's even been a wan imitation in an ad for Berocca vitamin supplements. This year the band attempted the trick again with two videos for their single "This Too Shall Pass" off their third album, Of the Blue Colour of the Sky. The second of these videos has really captured attention. In the month it's been online, the video has been viewed 10 million times. It is yet another triumph of planning and coordination. In it, a grand Rube Goldberg Machine is enacted – a domino/mouse-trap contraption is set in motion in time to the music, incorporating the band who mime along to the lyrics while taking part in the colourful mess of unfolding events. It's an impressive feat, perfectly designed to be passed around the internet, but it also highlighted a flaw: OK Go's visuals are memorable, but their music is unremarkable. Indeed, the electro musician Max Tundra wrote on Twitter, "OK Go should record an innovative, exciting piece of music – and make a plodding, nondescript video to go with it." Despite all of OK Go's viral exposure, they haven't sold many records. The band recently split from EMI to set up their own independent label, Paracadute Recordings; it's been suggested that disagreements with EMI on how to distribute their videos was a major factor, but perhaps also poor sales for their third LP played their part.
"The thing about OK Go is that they outdo what they have done before. And that is a hard thing to do. Give them credit for that," says Lana Kim, head of music videos at the Directors Bureau in LA. Kim also hosts a web music show at Thelanashow.com. Increasingly for producers like Kim, whose company represents several high-profile directors, record labels are naturally seeking conceits that will create online word of mouth. "Often the brief comes in with, 'we want this to be viral, just like such-and-such video'," she says. "You can't force a video to be passed around, so you can't base a successful concept around that. It happens organically, and if something is good, people will share it." Towering above them all is Lady Gaga. Last week it was reported that with just three videos, "Bad Romance", "Just Dance" and "Poker Face", she had become the first artist to be viewed one billion times online. This figure doesn't include her latest juggernaut, "Telephone", which, since its release several weeks ago, has been watched almost 30 million times on YouTube. The importance of the visual elements makes Lady Gaga interesting: her music doesn't seem complete until you see the outrageous costumes and watch the daring videos and performances. This might explain the high numbers watching her work; though monumental hype helps too.
"What I appreciate in Lady Gaga's videos is that spectacle that we often don't see nowadays," says Kim. "But you can see the formula: insane costumes, plus almost nude Gaga, plus dancers, plus bright lights, plus saturated colours, plus product placement, plus someone dying." "Telephone", a lurid tale of Gaga as an inmate in a women's prison turned killer on the run, conforms perfectly to her formula, with the bonus of an appearance by Beyoncé. It also seems specifically designed to create cartoon controversy, much like Lady Gaga's entire career. With that controversy, its celebrity cameos and an extended nine-minute length, "Telephone" recalls an earlier MTV age when pop stars made grand "event" videos: epic affairs with lavish budgets intended to get people talking, long before they could email links to each other. With most record labels on their knees, such garish events are now rare, and paid for in more roundabout ways. "Major label artists finance flashy mini-movies via increasingly obnoxious product placements," says Scott Lapatine. Lady Gaga claims that "Telephone" is a commentary on contemporary American culture. However, its biggest statement seems to be about the artist herself: an assertion of the power of her brand that also displays her ear for a pop tune and head for a well-timed web event. No doubt, many are combing Lady Gaga's videos to try to replicate her success, just as Ross Ching created a formula from watching videos online. But the one constant, as it always has been for the best music videos, is an arresting visual idea. "Interesting concepts are interesting concepts, regardless of where technology has gone," says Lana Kim. "It is amazing how a good video, as dated as it might be, would still hold up today. Mediocre videos get lost in the mess of the internet. No one wants to forward a link of a boring video to friends."

Lady GaGa Top the List of "Most Important People in the World" According with WIPlalista

Lady Gaga has revealed she can give herself an orgasm — just by thinking about it!. “I remember the first time that I drank out of an imaginary coffee cup,” GaGa told New York magazine. “That’s the very first thing they teach you. I can feel the rain, too, when it’s not raining. “I don’t know if this is too much for your magazine, but I can actually mentally give myself an orgasm. You know, sense memory is quite powerful.” Gaga also revealed her nickname at her posh convent high school was “Big Boobs McGee” “At that time, my breasts were much bigger, and firm, and delicious,” she said. “I was 15 to 20 pounds heavier than I am now. “I would wear shirts that were low-cut and the teachers would tell me that I couldn’t wear them, and I’d point to another girl who was wearing the same thing, [and they would say] ‘Well, it looks different on her.’ It wasn’t fair.” Source: ShowbizSpy

Lady Gaga Rumored To Be Designing Sunglasses Line
Singer is reportedly teaming up with British eyewear company Linda Farrow.
Lady Gaga is a creative director for Polaroid and has created her own pair of Heartbeats headphones. Now there's a rumor that she is in talks to design her own line of sunglasses for British eyewear company Linda Farrow. Fans of Gaga know that she isn't new to the world of sunglasses. Most of her videos have included some Gaga take on them. And now, WWD.com reports that Gaga could be the latest person to collaborate with the company, which has been creating eyewear for 40 years and has worked with a number of designers, including Alexander Wang, Matthew Williamson, Dries Van Noten and singer Róisín Murphy. A rep for Farrow hadn't responded to MTV News' call for comment at press time to confirm the report. In Gaga's latest video, for "Telephone," she wears a pair of sunglasses made of burning cigarettes. She's also debuted new and fresh eyewear looks in her videos for "Poker Face" and "Bad Romance." "We design a pair of sunglasses in every video," she's said of the Haus of Gaga, explaining her inspiration for the looks, including the razor-blade sunglasses in "Bad Romance." "I wanted to design a pair for some of the toughest chicks and some of my girlfriends — don't do this at home!" She may be designing sunglasses for the company, but she has said in the past that she isn't interested in designing a clothing line with her Haus of Gaga. "They're my best friends," she said. "I'm not really sure what the world thinks ... but I do hear things like, 'Who is the Haus of Gaga?' and 'Are you putting out a fashion line?' And no one gets it. It's not a commodity. It's not something that's meant to be sold."

Lady Gaga Has Made Dance Music Mainstream, DJ Tommie Sunshine Says
At WMC 2010, the house DJ says success of Gaga and Black Eyed Peas is inspiring new artists.
MIAMI — There is something special in the air in South Beach. You'd expect the mood to be euphoric on day three of the Winter Music Conference, the annual dance music conclave that brings together fans, artists and event promoters from around the world. But this year, people seem to be in an even more delighted mood than usual.House DJ and rock-remix impresario Tommie Sunshine, who's been attending WMC for the past 14 years, attributes the extra happiness to the increasing relevance of dance music today. "Recently, David Guetta played Pacha in New York on a Wednesday night," Sunshine told MTV News when we caught up with him poolside on Wednesday at the Raleigh Hotel. "And he and Will.I.Am went two for two all night long. When they played one of the songs Will sang, he sang it live. Three in the morning, Fergie shows up, starts singing all the Black Eyed Peas stuff live. Then Estelle shows, and they do 'One Love' together. I mean it was a rock concert in Pacha in New York City. People going absolutely mental on a Wednesday night till 5 o'clock in the morning. It was incredible." Indeed, the success of the Black Eyed Peas and recent Billboard magazine cover boy David Guetta is the talk of WMC 2010. Virtually, every artist MTV News interviewed on Wednesday spoke reverently of what they have done for making dance music popular. But Brooklyn-based Sunshine wants to remind folks that credit is also due to Lady Gaga. "Anybody that is in South Beach right now that discredits Lady Gaga for what she has done for electronic music is out of their mind," Sunshine said. "I mean [Gaga producer] Red One and Space Cowboy and her, in collaboration, have done so much for making dance music mainstream. I'm sorry, but there wouldn't be a David Guetta top 10 hit ... there wouldn't be this Black Eyed Peas record, if it wasn't for The Fame. The influence of that record is epic, and we are hearing talking about all of this because of that." And for Sunshine, the blockbuster scale of Gaga's music videos is also helping the scene regain the prominence it held a few decades ago. "You see the video for 'Telephone,' and you're like, 'This is real stuff here,' " he marveled. "I mean, this is mega serious money being spent to put together amazing videos, using real film directors, for a dance record. That's a dance track! That is the 'Thriller' of our time, you know. And there is all this hubbub about it. I haven't seen that kind of [excitement] over a video in 20 years. I mean, MTV did that all the time back in the '80s ... and now it's back. And it's back with dance music." Sunshine — who has gained attention through notable remixes of Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco and Good Charlotte — said he thinks that the industry is encouraged, and talent from around the world is coming out of the woodwork. "I've been a DJ for 18 years, and I've been making music for over a decade," he said. "I've never been this excited about making music. I'm starting a record label because I feel like there is such a wealth of talent now. It's called Brooklyn Fire, and I've found guys from all over the world. Some of these guys I'm working with, they are in New Zealand. They are all over Europe. They are in Jakarta, Indonesia. With the Internet and Soundcloud and all of these other things that connect us all, Twitter — I've found most of the artists on my label over Twitter. It sounds crazy, but this is how we are all doing business now."

Lady Gaga Breaks Records In Sales, Video Viewings
Gaga's videos have exceeded 1 billion views online.
Lady Gaga is having quite a week. After the announcement that she's about to start work on her next music video for her "Alejandro" track comes news that she's broken two records, one for video views and one for music sales. First off, the singer is now the only digital-era artist to top the 5 million sales mark with her first two hits, according to Yahoo Music. Gaga broke the record when her single "Poker Face" reached 5 million in sales after her debut single, "Just Dance," accomplished that feat last year. The only other act with two songs at or above 5 million is the Black Eyed Peas, according to Yahoo. And if selling millions of records weren't enough, Gaga also reached the 1 billion mark in video views. According to Mashable, with numbers and analytics compiled by Visible Measures, Gaga is the first artist to have her videos reach 1 billion views. Three of her music videos hold spots in the 100 Million Club, including "Poker Face" (374,606,128), "Just Dance" (272,941,674) and "Bad Romance" (360,020,327). Most of the streams are through Vevo and YouTube. Following close behind Gaga's record are "Twilight" (980 million) and Soulja Boy Tell'em (860 million). Last weekend, Gaga celebrated her 24th birthday and showed off one of her gifts online. In a photo posted on Twitter, she held up a red teacup and wrote, "Nothing like a communist-red teacup to make for the perfect Birthday gift. Last words are for fools who haven't said enough."

Lady Gaga Says 'Alejandro' Video Won't Be 'Telephone' Sequel
Third video from Fame Monster rumored to be directed by fashion photographer Steven Klein.

After the enormous attention Lady Gaga's elaborate "Telephone" video has received, expectations are very high for her next one. The singer, who is currently on tour in Australia, talked with radio station Nova 96.9 FM and dished a bit about what she has in store for "Alejandro," the third clip from her Fame Monster LP. "I'm so excited about the 'Alejandro' video," she told the station. "Actually, we're shooting it very soon and I don't want to say who the director is yet because it's going to give a lot away." When asked if she could reveal anything more, it was evident that she intends on keeping the music video's concept secret. "Are you absolutely mad? I would never, ever tell you!" she laughed. "I would be more likely to lie through my teeth to you what the video's about so that you could all be surprised. But I will tell you it's not the sequel to the 'Telephone' video." WWD reported on Tuesday that fashion photographer Steven Klein will helm the clip, but that information had not been confirmed at press time; reps for Gaga and Klein had not confirmed or provided MTV News with details about the video. For the moment, Gaga is enjoying touring Australia. "What mayhem in Melbourne tonight. Some kids just understand what it means live your eyeliner, breathe your lipstick, and kill for each other." she tweeted on Tuesday. "Writing music, leopard tights, monster varsity jacket I'm grateful to have fans that continue to inspire me Ready to sweat tonight Melbourne," she Gaga tweeted a few hours later.
