Days after her dope Super Bowl performance, Lady Gaga liberates a new visual for ‘John Wayne’ (created alongside Mark Ronson and Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age), directed by Jonas Åkerlund and taken from Joanne. Unlike other, more laid-back clips from this albums, this one sees Mother Monster back in pure, wild form.
This year will see Lady Gaga on a massive world tour in lieu of her latest album Joanne, which kicks off in August and will see the star artist on the road for the remainder of the year (including an O2 Arena stop in October. Check out those dates here; to get you a taste of what’s to come, you can also check out Lady Gaga’s halftime performance at this year’s Super Bowl below.

Lady Gaga reveals a new visual for ‘Million Reasons’, taken from her latest album Joanne.
Looks like Lady Gaga will be leading the festival circuit next year. Several reports are stating that Mother Monster was recently announced as a headliner for next year’s Rock In Rio Festival in Brazil, which takes place 15th to 24th September.
While this hasn’t been confirmed, we do know for sure that Aerosmith will be taking to the stage. So there’s that.
While we wait for a confirmation, fans can check out Gaga’s new album Joanne here. In related news, she revealed to Zane Lowe that one of the album’s tracks, ‘Angel Down’, was written about Trayvon Martin.
UPDATE: Lady Gaga also has a web series titled Making Joanne, which takes the user behind the scenes for the making of Joanne. Episode 1 is added below.
Before the release of her new album Joanne, we get to hear another rockin’ track from Lady Gaga titled ‘A-YO’, produced by Mark Ronson and BloodPop. Definitely keeps with the Rock (and slight Country) sound we’ve been hearing as of late.
Check it out above; Joanne drops this Friday. UPDATE: You can now stream Joanne below, courtesy of Apple Music.
Come 21st October, Lady Gaga will be liberating her brand-new album Joanne. Before that, we get to hear another track from the project titled ‘Million Reasons’, co-written by Hillary Lindsey. The somewhat Country number certainly keeps with the more stripped-down vibe that Mother Monster has been giving the masses lately.
Enjoy ‘Million Reasons’ above; pre-order Joanne via iTunes.
UPDATE: Yesterday saw Lady Gaga performing her new tune at London nightclub The Moth alongside Mark Ronson; you can check that out below.
Mother Monster is back. This weekend, Lady Gaga liberates a brand new single titled ‘Perfect Illusion’, a booming cut that sees production from Mark Ronson, (Tame Impala’s) Kevin Parker, BloodPop and Gaga herself (Josh Homme provided some assistance as well). The track is said to be about a soured relationship — art imitating life, as Gaga is currently split from fiancé Taylor Kinney.
You can enjoy a stream of ‘Perfect Illusion’ above; the song is also available via iTunes.
This year’s 88th Academy Awards saw some rousing performances from Sam Smith, Lady Gaga and The Weeknd; big winners of the night included Mad Max: Fury Road, Spotlight and The Revenant‘s Leonardo DiCaprio and Alejandro González Iñárritu. Extra special congrats also goes to Sam Smith (for the Spectre theme song ‘Writing’s On The Wall’) and the creators of the Amy documentary.
Also: the night’s host was none other than Chris Rock, who made sure to see the issue of racial diversity front and centre throughout the program (ex. a random Stacey Dash appearance and hilarious skits with Whoopi Goldberg and Tracy Morgan), beginning with his sure-to-have-been-polarising opening monologue, which you can watch above. The award winners can be found below; performances are now streaming on the Academy Awards’ official website.

Lady Gaga has revealed a new single and
visual short film for ‘Til It Happens To You’, a jarring message that helps put the spotlight on sexual assault and rape (in particular, when the crime occurs on college campuses).
Check out the powerful clip above and purchase ‘Til It Happens To You’ on iTunes.

In addition to Drake and Pharrell Williams, Apple Music and Beats 1 has nabbed Lady Gaga for their celebrity artist roster…Gaga herself confirmed via Twitter (above).
Read about the Apple Music service here.
This is really dope: remember the version of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’ (from 2012’s good kid, m.A.A.d city) that featured Lady Gaga? Well, they apparently also had another collaboration sitting in the vault…below lies an unreleased (and presumably unfinished) track titled ‘PARTYNAUSEOUS’, which sounds great but doesn’t really match with the cohesiveness of GKMC (and is thus understandable to see why it didn’t make it on the album).
Check it out below.
