Lady Gaga: I've been betrayed

Jan 6 2014, 10:18am CST | by

Lady Gaga claims she's been "betrayed" by those closest to her.

The 'Applause' hitmaker has hit out at "mismanagement" which left her without enough time to shoot a video for 'Do What You Want', her collaboration with R. Kelly from her latest album 'ARTPOP', and went on to suggest she was being overworked to make more money for other people.

She wrote on her Little Monsters website: "It is late because, just like with the Applause video unfortunately, I was given a week to plan and execute it. (sic)

"It is very devastating for someone like me, I devote every moment of my life to creating fantasies for you.

"All my most successful videos were planned over a period of time when I was rested and my creativity was honored.

"Those who have betrayed me gravely mismanaged my time and health and left me on my own to damage control any problems that ensued as a result.

"Millions of dollars are not enough for some people. They want billions. Then they need trillions. I was not enough for some people. They wanted more.

"I am very grateful to the photographers and designers who have always stood by me to make sure my fans are never aware of the things that happen behind the scenes, but unfortunately after my surgery I was too sick, too tired, and too sad to control the damage on my own. My label was not aware that this was going on."

The 27-year-old singer - who was forced to cancel a string of shows on her 'Born This Way' tour to undergo delicate hip surgery last year - is now confident her career is back on the right track.

Gaga insisted: "The next few months of ARTPOP will truly be its beginning. Because those who did not care about ARTPOP's success are now gone, and the dreams I have been planning can now come to fruition."

The singer's lengthy post assured fans her comments were not aimed at her record label Interscope, leading to speculation they were directed at her former longtime manager Tro Carter, who she split from last year.

She went on to ask fans to give her a chance and open their hearts so they can become "stronger as a unit", adding: "Let me be for you the Goddess that I know I truly am, let me show you the visions that have been in my mind for two years.

"I love you. Forgive me monsters. Forgive me ARTPOP. You are my whole world."

This Soulful Singer is Leading a '90s Music Revival

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

Capital Summertime Ball - Photocall
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 ba ...

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, a ...

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

Chrissy Teigen And Nicole Richie On Extra
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 about the music, righ ...

Lily Allen Needs a Reality Check With a Side of Sense

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

Splendour In the Grass 2014 - Byron Bay
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 everybody el ...

Chrissy Teigen And Nicole Richie On Extra
When it comes to choosing godparents, people often pick those closest to them to inspire and provide guidance to their child.

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.

Katy Perry Media Call
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'd be ...
