Born this Way Friday

This week I’ve been trying to keep occupied while waiting for Born this Way.  Don’t want to be a total monster right? Just a little one. The hype to Born this Way is building.  The lyrics were released then Gaga said that she was releasing the song two days early.  Originally it was going to be released on the same day as the Grammys. Now we’ll get it in time to sing along, well some people will be able to.  I might be a able to tumble along.  And then there’s her cover art for the album.  She’s got an old glam look from the 70s + monsterness. Alot of people have noted she looks like Ke$ha on the cover, but I’ll say she looks the way Ke$ha wishes she could and tries to look like so whatevs to that.  And everyone seems to think all blonde females look the same. And Little Monsters have been keeping BornThisWayFriday a trending topic  on Twitter all this week.  I’ve never seen this much hype over one song which makes it the most exciting song release of my time and its got to be as good or better than the hype. I’ve never heard a bad Lady Gaga song.  Just ones that wouldn’t necessarily get played on the radio.

In the meantime I’ve been imaging what Born this Way will sound like.  Will it be a dance song? I’m sure it has to be. But when she sang a snippet it was definitely a ballad.   What’s Gaga got in store for us this time? Ellen showed off her imaginings and got James Blunt and Justin Bieber to help her out. Who else has been imagining the song while awaiting Born this Way Friday?

The Apocalypse on Tour!

April 21, 2010 at 11:03 pm (music, pop culture, Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

The snowacalpse,  snowmeggedon, earthquakes, and that one particular volcano’ s probably got a lot of people thinking its the end of the world.  Movies like 2012 and the growing fear people in the US are showing towards the government aren’t helping matters.  At least we’re no longer having a financial meltdown and the economy’s supposedly getting better.  2010 has been particularly busy.

But I’m not going to talk about those things anymore. Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball tour and Rihanna’s Last Girl on Earth Tour both herald the end.  Not to start any new conspiracy theories.  There are enough of those flying around.  But does this pic of Gaga remind you of something quite scary or is it just me? She’s even got horns on that mask. Gaga had her little monster’s making apocalyptic videos for the first leg of her tour.  Here’s one particularly good one:

The second leg may not be the apocalypse anymore, but it still has monsters. I’m looking forward to the Monster Ball.

As for Rihanna her whole gig seems to be the end, last girl on earth. How could that not be the end.  And with songs like Fire Bomb, Hard, and Mad House you’d think the whole world’s gone to pieces and only crazy, tough people remain. I’m curious how she’s got her concert planned out. And with Ke$ha opening I know she’s going to have a wild crowd. Too bad Nicki Minaj’s not doing the tour that would have been even more crazy.  People are going to be hype coming out of the show.

Anyone going to the Monster Ball or Last Girl on Earth Tour? And what do you think about all this about the apocalypse?
