Mother Monster has gifted us with some Gaga treats this week- here’s your weekly What’s Up With Gaga update! You’re watching your source for music news, ClevverMusic. This week, we learned Lady Gaga hit up Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Fest to support labelmate and friend Kendrick Lamar. Rumors flew that Gaga would be performing with the hip hopper on stage- but no dice. Instead we learned via tweet that Gaga loves his new song, “Swimming Pools” by tweeting “…’Swimming Pool’ is so cool.”
Next, Lady Gaga revealed her print ad for fragrance ‘Fame’ by tweeting a link to it on her social media site LittleMonsters.com. In the ad, Mother Monster bares it all wearing nothing but a face mask and bite size male models hanging off her skin! We love the artistic ad, especially all the fun positions the models are posed in!
We also found out this week that Mother Monster is building her dream home in Crete, Greece. A home that is said to appear to “float on the sea.” The home reportedly costing over 15 million dollars will feature a church, tennis court, 2 pools, and a “palace”. We expect nothing less from our famed Mother Monster.
Lady Gaga debuted a video this week, the making of her perfume ‘Fame’ titled ‘FORUMULATION’. In the black & white video we see Haus Laboratories mixing the black eau du parfum together, but it’s not your typical lab. The lab workers are half naked and working in dimly lit rooms. The French narrator explains the formula for the concoction includes “…Pulverized Apricot, Crushed Heart of Tiger Ochidea and Tears of Belladonna.” How thorough!
Lastly, we learned today that Lady Gaga is the Top Female Touring Act of 2012, so far. Ouch Madonna. Gaga’s tour is the highest grossing female tour this year, and she hasn’t even hit Europe or North America yet! Ah the power of Little Monsters! Check out the list of the Top 10 tours down in the description.
