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."

This Soulful Singer is Leading a '90s Music Revival

Jul 27 2014 1:38pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

While the ’80s music revival has seen no shortage of evangelists (Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Daft Punk, Robyn, Haim), the ’90s sound—muddled by every genre from new jack swing to g-funk—is only on the brink of resurrection. Kiesza is one artist set to lead the blitz. “My mom was obsessed with ’90s music,” says the 25-year-old Canadian, who, prior to cutting her singer-songwriter teeth at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, trained as a ballet dancer (and also, incidentally, as a code br ...

Jul 27 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

For a woman who's sold over 8 million records worldwide, Lana Del Rey has managed to remain something of an enigma. A recent Rolling Stone piece about Lana filled in some of the puzzle pieces (Perhaps that's why she nearly bailed mid-interview.), but there are still plenty of questions remaining. Is she really dating Francesco Carrozzini? What's going on with Lana and James Franco? Fortunately, ...
