Lady Gaga calls for action against internet trolls

Aug 22 2013, 3:29am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Lady Gaga wants to crack down on online trolls.

The 'Applause' singer has blamed social media bosses for letting their users bully others by spamming them with hurtful messages and believes sites like Twitter should be monitored in a better way.

In an interview with Scott Mills on UK station BBC Radio 1 - to air today (21.08.13) - she said: "It's not something we can control. The only people who can control it are the companies that run these sites, and they're putting money into the promotion of the site and the platform - not into monitoring. If we were to monitor it better, it would be safer."

This comes after the 27-year-old star's own fans - who she calls her Little Monsters - have been accused of harassing others online - namely her chart rival Katy Perry, whose new song 'Roar' is outperforming Gaga's comeback single.

Fans also trolled showbiz blogger Perez Hilton after Gaga publicly accused him of stalking her when she discovered he was apartment hunting in her building.

Despite revealed she was constantly "teased for being ugly, having a big nose, being annoying" as a teen, the singer can't believe just how vicious and "abusive" some people can be.

She said: "You go on the internet and especially Twitter and the things I see really shock me. This is the age we live in - this faceless cyber-bullying.

"There's no accountability, there's no recourse. Freedom of speech is freedom of speech but there's a line that needs to be drawn when the language becomes abusive."

Next Wave #608: FEMME

Oct 27 2014 11:34am CDT | Source: Clash Music

A retro-futuristic pop princess…FEMME can be considered many things: an alluring fatale with pink hair, a nonchalant fashion icon with chandelier earrings, and a burgeoning popstress. But not in the contrived sense – her retro futurism aesthetic is authentic. It takes a cerebral mind to hark back to one of the most influential eras in music. “There’s a lot of charm in ’60s girl-groups that’s very inspiring. There’s something very human about it, it’s very accessible.” Born Laura Be ...

Love Is Saying 'Sari': The Quest To Save A South Asian Tradition

Oct 27 2014 3:36am CDT | Source: WNYC Music

My parents were married for more than 40 years, happily. But my mother says her greatest joy is stacked in her closet: her saris or, as Bengalis say it, shaaris. "Because sari is my passion, maybe my first love is sari," my mother says, giggling. There are about 200 saris in there, many older than me. My mother danced on stage in a sari. She went to college in a sari. And wherever she went on holiday, she found the sari shop. "I went t ...

Lady Gaga A Vision In White

Oct 26 2014 7:24am CDT | Source: I'm Not Obsessed

It looks like Lady Gaga decided she wasn’t interested in a little black dress when she decided to hit the town in London. Instead, she went with a white dress. She almost looks bridal, doesn’t she? Yet Lady Gaga still made a unique fashion statement with dramatic eye make-up. Even with the cosmetics, however, this look is rather tame for her – LOL. RELATED: Lady Gaga is ready to hit the town! One thing I haven’t noticed since her hip surgery are the stilts platform s ...
