    Allie X - Girl with No Face

    She answered this on her TikTok. For financial reasons she is able to put a budget together for one more video, but she's gonna wait to see which ones takes off the most. She "hopes" it will be Tits, but thinks it might be Galina. She also revealed in a comment on this same TikTok that she has a...

    Allie X - Girl with No Face

    Back to back of "Saddest Smile" and "Staying Power" killed me. This is her greatest album

    Lady Gaga

    YouTuber Lola Sebastian has made a 100 minute deepdive on ARTPOP available on her Patreon, which you can access at the lowest tier ($1) subscription level. The video is mostly focused on the album as a text instead of the “era” surrounding it, and it’s honestly the best ARTPOP related analysis...

    Nooo I was excited to have potentially unlocked a clue. But thanks for the correction. Back to square one…

    Lady Gaga

    I have this personal little conspiracy theory that Gaga knew she wanted to someday make albums called Joanne and ARTPOP long before she did, and that she has a bunch of titles for songs and albums she wants to someday make but hasn’t written yet. I feel like a rock-ish album called “Church”...

    Lady Gaga

    Speechless, Dope, and Million Reasons all to varying degrees work far better live than on record, in my opinion. I do think the recorded Dope works and I enjoy its much derided “grating” nature when in the right mood, but the Howard Stern take is possibly in my Top 5 Gaga performances ever and...

    Lady Gaga

    Is it not possible that Gaga is in a creative drought musically? It happens to the greatest of artists. Is it also not entirely possible she isn’t sure what she wants to say next, musically, thematically? Is it also not entirely possible she just wants to live her life, take a break from being...

    Sorry if this is pedantic because I know this wasn’t your main point but I think it was just a rumor that Venus was just a late addition. If I recall she finished it last but the original demo was a candidate for first single before Aura in 2012

    Troye Sivan - Something to Give Each Other

    I feel like there’s a double entendre I’m not understanding… like is “pop” an innuendo I haven’t heard?

    Allie X - Girl with No Face

    Hello, Sanctuary, Old Habits Die Hard, Science - these songs are so massive and euphoric I don’t think it’s possible for them to “age”. The demo for “True Love is Violent” and the unreleased song “The Cure” are my favorites though (and ALL of Cape God, though I have to be in a very specific...

    Lady Gaga

    The actress Arleen Sorkin, who originated the role of Harley Quinn (the character came from Batman: the Animated Series before appearing in any comics) passed away on Thursday (RIP). I wonder if Gaga reached out to her when taking on the role, or if they ever spoke. I’ve never watched any of...

    Barbie

    The opening scene, the final line, most of the first Act, Robbie, Ferrera, McKinnon, and Gosling, set design, the musical number, and the underlying storyline were perfect. A few one liners were brilliant and the ideas *expressed* in a lot of the dialogue was great… but most of the dialogue...

    Troye Sivan - Something to Give Each Other

    The video is so well made, bursting with vivacious energy - yet it really is bizarre how only one body type is depicted. It is distracting enough that anecdotally, several people I follow who are not really “discourse” types have mentioned it. The song is nothing innovative but it’s catchy and...

    Lady Gaga

    I love the original track, but the Dorian Electra remix of “Replay” is genuinely one of my favorite Gaga songs now. I feel like the added drama and Dorian’s vocals bring the track to a whole other level

    Lady Gaga

    In the comments of her post, Gaga said she found out about the book from reading “Belly of the Beast: The Politics of Anti-Fatness as Anti-Blackness” by Da’Shaun Harrison

    Taylor Swift - Midnights

    I’m so dumb, I never realized Cruel Summer was co-written by St Vincent. That makes sooo much sense, those rolling “Cruel”s reminded me intensely of something I couldn’t place; now so clearly it’s Clark’s own song of the same name!
