Lady Gaga addressed her haters through a Twitter tirade Sunday pegged to the midnight release of her latest single, "Do What U Want. " The theatrical "Applause" singer also revealed the cover art to her latest track, which features R. Kelly and is essentially a nearly NSFW closeup of her backside in a thong. Do what you want, indeed. But the more poignant reveal saw the bravado-filled singer addressing various rumors about her career, comparisons to Madonna, chart rivalry with "Roar" singer Katy Perry and her personal life.

At the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, the focus was on health, not chocolate, with exercise stations and healthy eating tips thanks to fitness-focused First Lady Michelle Obama.

PARIS -- On Aura Tout Vu, which roughly translates as “Now You've Seen Everything,” may be the quirkiest design house on the official Paris haute couture calendar. So it's not surprising that Lady Gaga numbers among its customers. Label designers Livia Stoianova and Yassen Samouilov showed their spring-summer collection, themed “Cosmic Beetle,” this week, and it was easy to imagine Lady Gaga wearing some of the clothes onstage.  In keeping with the concept, real beetle wings substituted for sequins, lighting up necklines, shoulders and transparent sleeves or giving an entire dress a surreal-seeming iridescence.

Lady Gaga has a new message for all of her “little monsters”: Save water. The five-time Grammy Award winner will soon be on the air with a public service announcement urging Californians to do their part to help with the state's drought. So how did Lady Gaga become the new face of drought awareness? It started when the “Poker Face” singer wanted to use Hearst Castle for what the Hearst Castle Foundation is calling "a special creative project. " The San Simeon estate, which is now a state park, is doing its part to help with the water crunch.

Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" has become the fastest-selling single ever on Apple's iTunes store worldwide, racking up more than 1 million downloads in five days, Apple said Friday. Apple said the song ? a Madonna-influenced dance track that the 24-year-old singer performed after "hatching" from a giant egg at the Grammy Awards ? had hit the No. 1 spot on iTunes in 23 countries. "Born This Way," the title track of a new album to be released in May, also went straight to the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles charts earlier this week.

Months before Kendrick Lamar released his critically lauded major-label debut, “good kid, m.A.A.d city,” the Compton rapper collaborated on a couple tracks with one of the biggest pop stars in the world, Lady Gaga. One of the collaborations between the label mates-turned-friends (both are with Interscope Records),  “Partynauseous,” didn't make the cut due to label holdups and creative differences. The other, the original version of “Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe,” was leaked by Gaga to her fans on Twitter on Wednesday night.

Lady Gaga, as you may have heard, is currently in the middle of a run of concerts at New York's Roseland Ballroom, the historic venue's final engagement before it closes its doors after half a century on West 52nd Street in Manhattan. Something else you may have heard: Lady Gaga is currently battling a perception -- one that began to creep up when sales of last year's "Artpop" didn't quite meet expectations -- that she no longer matters. So Wednesday night, the pop star dropped by "Late Show with David Letterman" to talk up the Roseland gigs -- and to remind everyone that she can still cause a stir.

Suddenly, the selfie is everywhere. It's been around since forever, but Ellen DeGeneres' Oscar-night selfie has suddenly made it a pop culture "thing" for celebrities to do. Latest evidence: Bill Murray, Lady Gaga and David Letterman on Wednesday night's "Late Show. " Murray popped up continually on Letterman's show Wednesday night as he checked items off his personal bucket list. He asked, and was allowed, to deliver a joke during Letterman's monologue. And he got Letterman to air a clip from his movie, "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and read nice things off a piece of paper.

In the next few months, Liza Minnelli will bring her new musical show, "Simply Liza," to Vienna, London, Paris and Amsterdam, among other places. There's one stage, however, on which this Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, Golden Globe and Tony winner has never set foot: Walt Disney Concert Hall. That'll change on Tuesday night, when "Liza With a Z" heads to downtown L.A. for a one-night-only performance of some of her favorite songs. Minnelli recently chatted about the show from her home in New York, on the eve of her 68th birthday.

AUSTIN, Texas - Here's to bad vibes, colored vomit and off-years. Go ahead and toast those who prevailed at South by Southwest by getting signed, licensed or folded into a future marketing plan, but the losers in this vicious cycle earned more respect. This was a year in which Apple infiltrated the event to put on its own "festival" within the festival, and the year that party sponsors required that before entering, attendees sign away their rights for possible commercial use. The keynote speaker, Lady Gaga, trivialized bulimia with a shocking stunt, and the salted snack brand that funded her bull-in-a-china-shop arrival at South by Southwest further insulted the festival's spirit of creation with ham-fisted ploys to link music and munchies.

Those who have regularly attended South by Southwest probably know the feeling that can occur as the annual music festival closes: a sense that, for all the wondrous music that poured into the ears, you somehow failed. Failed because you missed the spectacle, for example, of Lady Gaga getting puked on, arrived too late in the week to catch Jay Z and Kanye West or missed [insert buzz band here]. Failed because, as a writer in search of drama, it should have obvious to me to trail rapper Tyler, the Creator at least for a while, because he'd likely incite a riot.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Artists and venues slowly appeared to be returning to normal Thursday hours after a car plowed into a crowd of revelers, leaving two dead and 23 injured. Venues near the tragedy canceled afternoon events and stated that concerts for this evening were "still pending," although early indications were that those shows would go on. Meanwhile, images of pop star Lady Gaga rehearsing at a venue just blocks from where the accident occurred have flooded social media.

Looks like Lady Gaga is tearing another page out of the Madonna platinum-blond, pop-superstar playbook. In the early '90s, Madonna launched a new phase of her career by allowing director Alek Keshishian to make a documentary, "Truth or Dare," about the singer's Blond Ambition tour. Keshishian's film painted Madonna in a candid and revealing light and included a memorable cameo by her then-boy-toy Warren Beatty, who in one sequence makes the laughing observation about Madonna: "She doesn't want to live off-camera, much less talk.

With only a month to go until the release of her new album, Lady Gaga is putting the promotional engine into overdrive -- so much so that now she's promoting things other than "Artpop. " The singer late Wednesday posted a video for her song "Aura," which is expected to be the first track on "Artpop," due Nov. 11. (It comes two months after she released the album's lead single, " Applause . ") PHOTOS: Hollywood Backlot moments But though the clip is billed as a lyric video, it feels more like an extended trailer for "Machete Kills," the Robert Rodriguez film set to open Friday; at certain points it's actually hard to hear "Aura" -- a thumping dance track produced by the German EDM star Zedd -- for all the movie dialogue jammed into the thing.

AUSTIN, Texas - The state is known for its stalwart independent streak, but on the first night of music at South by Southwest, Austin was a place for the world to mingle. From L.A. buzz bands to K-pop superstars and pop-rap titans, Tuesday's late-night lineup proved that, for all the worries that SXSW has become a targeted-marketing snake eating its own hashtagged-and-branded tail, there really isn't a better mile of live music in America than what's happening this week. Our estimable hometown was well represented Tuesday night.

There's good news and bad news if you're interested in, say, seeing Lady Gaga in Austin, Texas, on Thursday.  First, the bad news. To secure entry into the concert, which is sponsored by a snack food company and part of the South by Southwest festival and conference, one must complete any number of social media stunts. The good news, however, is one doesn't need to be in Austin to watch the concert at all.  Lady Gaga's Thursday night appearance at the relatively intimate Stubb's BBQ -- if a venue with a capacity of just more than 2,000 can be considered intimate -- is only one of many South by Southwest music events that will be available online.
