Lady Gaga pressured to drop Diana song

Nov 7 2013, 3:29am CST | by Bang Showbiz

Lady Gaga was pressured to drop a controversial song about Princess Diana from her new album.

The 27-year-old star had wanted 'Princess Die' included on her third studio LP 'ARTPOP' - which is released on Monday (11.11.13) - but worried record company bosses at her label Streamline and parent firm Interscope urged her to axe the song fearing it may upset fans of the late Diana.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Lady Gaga was passionate about Princess Diana and, though she admitted it wasn't her best work, she still wanted it on the album.

"But after the adverse reaction it got from fans in the UK when she sang it at her gigs last year, the record company bosses stepped in.

"They persuaded her to remove it from the album to keep the peace. There still is a lot of emotion over Princess Di. Her death remains a very sensitive subject."

Gaga performed the song, written in 2011, at a concert in Twickenham, London, last year and told a somewhat skeptical crowd that it was her way of paying homage to the beloved royal - the mother of Princes William and Harry who tragically died in a car crash in Paris in 1997.

At the show she said: "Since I was a very young girl, the People's Princess was the most important person in me and my mother's life.

"I predict controversy but I don't care. Let's take a moment to appreciate her presence."

Gaga has tried to make light of the omission, telling fans the song "isn't as good as the other songs" written on her third studio album and that's why it was omitted.

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 Mu ...

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 interview, and ...

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, no one is really thinking a ...

Lily Allen Needs a Reality Check With a Side of Sense

Jul 24 2014 1:30pm CDT | Source: Fish Wrapper

It's time to feel sad and sorry and maybe just a little bit embarrassed for Lily Allen, guys, because she went and said a thing. Because, in case you didn't know, her latest album, Sheezus, didn't do incredibly well. It didn't do horribly by any means -- in its opening week, it was number one in the UK and number 12 in the U.S. -- but apparently it didn't do as well as Lily had hoped. And that's why she came out and blamed everyb ...

Which Celebrities Are Godparents For Their Famous Friends?

Jul 24 2014 5:08am CDT | Source: Pop Sugar

When it comes to choosing godparents, people often pick those closest to them to inspire and provide guidance to their child. So it's no surprise that most celebrity kids end up with very big stars influencing their upbringing. Steven Spielberg is godfather to a pair of huge stars, Drew Barrymore and Gwyneth Paltrow, and Nicole Richie's got two superstar goddads of her own. Michelle Williams's little girl, Matilda Ledger, calls Jake Gyllenhaal and Busy P ...

Katy Perry's green hair was one thing. But now, according to various blogs and comment boards, KP has simply gone to far by rocking some sort of weird green body-stocking thing while touring a Canadian "pioneer village" earlier this week. Apparently, Katy was under the impression that being in a 19th Century-themed park north of the border meant she was free to toss on whatever freakish textile she' ...
