Lady Gaga hits back at former assistant

Sep 15 2013, 2:24pm CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Lady Gaga claims she is "completely aghast" at her former assistant's lawsuit against her.

The 'Applause' hitmaker is being sued by her ex-best friend Jennifer O'Neill, who claims the singer owes her $380,000 in overtime payments because she had to spend 24 hours a day with her and share the same bed during 'The Monster Ball' tour in 2010.

The 27-year-old star has submitted a 200-page witness statement, obtained by the Mail on Sunday newspaper, to give her side of the story, in which she explains that she rewards her hardworking staff with perks rather than overtime pay.

She said: "I am quite wonderful to everyone that works for me. I am going to tell you exactly what ******* happened, so that the judge can read on this transcript exactly what's going on, which is my ex-best friend is a ******* hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn't earn. The job was essentially a favor, and Jennifer was majorly unqualified for it."

Lady Gaga also claims that personal assistants are rarely paid overtime in the entertainment industry.

Jennifer previously testified that she felt it was a "required" part of her job to sleep with her employer.

She said: "I was by her side virtually 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That includes sleeping in the same bed with her. Because she did not sleep alone."

She added: "Unlike anybody else on that tour, I did not have my own hotel room. I was not asked if I wanted my own hotel room."

The court case is set to begin on November 4 in New York City and could have landmark repercussions for entertainment industry employees.

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 ...

11 Things You Never Knew About Lana Del Rey: Her Vagina Tastes Like WHAT?!

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, Rolling Stone recently posted a companion piece to their Lana inte ...

Nicki Minaj threw a tantrum over ‘acceptable’ supermodel tushes: fair?

Jul 25 2014 10:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Nicki Minaj has been stirring sh-t up on social media this week. She already tweeted about racism in hip hop and threw some hefty shade on Iggy Azalea in the process. All of that was precursor to Nicki dropping the artwork for her new “Anaconda” single. We only thought Nicki started dressing classy. She hasn’t changed a bit. (I’m blurring this image for your eyeballs and because we blur all derrieres on this site.) With a single cover like this, ...
