Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 3.39.52 PM

In an interview with Popjustice music legend Giorgio Moroder revealed that he's working on Lady Gaga's next album and that he's working with several popstars on his own untitled album. Moroder, who worked with Daft Punk on their recent album Random Access Memories, revealed his next album is entirely composed of features from several different singers including popstars Charli XCX, Sia and Britney Spears. Moroder discussed Spears' song and is thinking of adding another singer to sing the bridge on the song; Popjustice recommended Lady Gaga and Moroder revealed that he's currently working with her on her next album and hopes that she'll feature on his next work as well.

Said Moroder:

"I was supposed to be in the studio with her a week ago, but I got a cold. I’ll see her when I’m back. I have about five or six tracks, just basic ideas. Drums, keyboard, bass. I’m going to be surprised, I think – I don’t have a clue about the way she’s recording. Will she play the piano? Will I?

"...This is for her new album – that’s the intention. I was hoping that maybe I can convince her to have one of the songs for my album. If I could convince her, well that would be incredible."

As for Moroder's own upcoming tracks, Popjustice called the track with Sia, Deja Vu, a "melodramatic, string-laded pop explosion of such devastating intensity that the crater it leaves will be visible from space," and Charli XCX's Diamonds a "noisy, clattering megabanger." Moroder refused to reveal the full name of Spears' song on the record but did reveal that he added new aspects to it that is "not on the original," indicating that the song isn't entirely new. 

Said Moroder:

"It's more than just a remake...I added quite a lot of stuff actually-one melody in the chorus, which repeats, and one bridge. It's old, but I consider it a new song.

Gaga posted a video to Instagram of the bachelorette party working the poles at a pole dancing class and enjoying a cadre of male strippers in New York City. Although last weekend was fun and games for Gaga, she's also been hard at work on her next album working with Bad Romance and Poker Face hitmaker RedOne, Diane Warren and Nile Rodgers who also worked with Daft Punk on Random Access Memories. Also rumors of a collaboration with Adele spread like wildfire after Gaga posted a pic of the two hanging out together, leading some to believe that the two discussed possible collaborations with each other.

Moroder just released a single from his upcoming feature album featuring Kylie Minogue called Right Here, Right Now and is currently available on iTunes. You can also watch the visually striking music video for Moroder's song 74 Is The New 24, released in November, where the disco pioneer proves that he can still hang with the best of EDM even at the age of 74, AFTER THE JUMP...

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett Get 'Cheek to Cheek' with Colbert: VIDEO

Colbert_gaga

Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga sat down with Stephen Colbert last night who asked how the two of them got together (a charity benefit), how he saw past the "outrageous" choices that she makes.

Says Bennett: "She's the most consummate performer I've ever met and I've met a lot of performers in my lifetime."

Colbert also asks how they chose the songs that appear on Cheek to Cheek, which, given Lady Gaga's involvement, one might expect to be about a pair of buttocks.

The duo then got up and performed the title track.

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

Andy Cohen and Sarah Silverman Talk 'The Comeback,' New Book, and Lady Gaga's Urine: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-11-27 at 3.59.33 AM

Via the Watch What Happens Live YouTube channel, here's a conversation between Andy Cohen and Sarah Silverman. Writers Bloc Presents hosted the event in New York last week on 11/20, to a sold out audience.

It might seem like a strange pairing, but it's a congenial (if surreal) conversation. Silverman holds her own in the pop culture department (did you know she owns an original painting by Anna Nicole Smith?) In any case, there's a lot to be thankful for in the video — pop culture errata you never knew you needed. From comments on Joan Rivers' death to Silverman's feelings about RHONY's Sonja.

Funny connection — Silverman's sister, Laura, plays Jane in HBO's The Comeback, whose season premiere featured a cameo from Cohen. He recounts his excitement in getting the original call to be on the show, which he describes as a favorite, readily quoting Valerie Cherish.

Check the hour long conversation, AFTER THE JUMP...

WATCH LIVE: Final Show Of Lady Gaga's ArtRAVE Tour

Screen Shot 2014-11-24 at 10.13.49 AM

If you missed Lady Gaga's worldwide tour, you now have a chance to watch her concert for free as Yahoo is livestreaming the final performance of Lady Gaga's ArtRAVE tour from Paris today. The tour, which started May 4, is listed as the second highest grossing tour of the year with a revenue of $46.9 million, and is expected to top $60 million when all the figures from her last few European dates are taken into account reports Billboard. Despite the lukewarm reception of the album when it was released last year, NewsdayThe Hollywood Reporter and The Guardian both gave glowing reviews about the tour and its theatrics commending the heart and intensity Gaga puts into her performances. 

If there's one thing about a Lady Gaga concert, it's that anything can, and mostly likely will, happen. Over the course of the tour she's had couples propose to each other on stage, belted out impromptu classic covers and performed songs from her new album with Tony Bennet, "Cheek to Cheek." The setlist includes fan favorites such as "Bad Romance," "Paparazzi," "Just Dance," and "Born This Way." Of course it's not a Gaga show without props including a latex squid outfit, lucite runways, lazer lights and cannabis-shaped confetti. 

The livestream of the Paris show can be watched AFTER THE JUMP...

Lady Gaga Invites Fan to Propose to His Boyfriend Onstage: VIDEO

Lady Gaga Jay and Shaun proposal

Love her or hate her, Lady Gaga has been an extremely vocal supporter of the LGBT community from virtually day one, so much so that she's even pissed off the Russian government with her support. (Yes, Madonna has done so, too. She is also awesome.) Last Tuesday in Manchester she continued her trend of support by hosting a gay marriage proposal on-stage during her concert. After getting her heel un-stuck from her latex outfit, she called her friend Jay up on stage and telling Jay's boyfriend Shaun that he might have a question for him. And then the crowd went berserk.

You can watch the proposal and piano-only rendition of "Born This Way" AFTER THE JUMP...
