Lady Gaga – "Applause"

Lady Gaga has finally dropped the first single from her upcoming album, yay!!! Well, she was pretty much forced to release it earlier than expected due to hackers leaking it over the weekend, so yeah.



"Applause" is an '80s-tastic, synth-heavy number that somehow harkens back to Gaga's debut album The Fame. Other than that, I feel like it's still a bit early for me to fully form an opinion. It didn't get me all bothered and hot like "Bad Romance" did back in 2009 (oh, the memories), but as far as I can tell, it's a grower. Being a longtime Gaga fan, it's needless to say that I'm dying to listen to ARTPOP. Although her previous offering, Born This Way, was somewhat polarizing, it still had some sick cuts—namely "Government Hooker," "Bad Kids," "Scheiße," "Heavy Metal Lover," and "Electric Chapel."

Does anyone know if "Burqa"/"Aura"/whatever-the-name-is will really be included on the album? I hope so, cuz I've been playing it nonstop since it came out.

Just a couple of reminders: The music video is set to premiere on August 19, and Gaga will be performing the song for the first time at the MTV Video Music Awards on August 25! If you ask me, the VMAs have been painfully boring these last years, so I'm hoping Gagaloo will make it watchable again.

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th
