First Look: Lady Gaga Reveals The Album Artwork For ‘Born This Way’

Lady Gaga unveiled the official artwork for her upcoming new album Born This Way late last night on her official Twitter profile just hours after her new single Judas first leaked to the Internets and then was officially released on iTunes for sale. Gaga teased the cover artwork by tweeting, “Get your hot rods ready to rumble, cause’ we’re gonna drink until we die.”- HIGHWAY UNICORN (ROAD TO LOVE), which I presume is a lyric from a new song. It turns out the “hot rods” part was meant to clue folks in that the cover artwork for Born This Way would have a motorcycle theme. Check it out below. More »

‘Glee’s Darren Criss Does ‘Billboard’ Magazine

Glee break-out star Darren Criss, who plays Kurt‘s boyfriend Blaine Anderson, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Billboard magazine. In his coverstory interview, Criss talks about his introduction to musical theater (Disney animated films), the recording of a Warbler’s album, this Summer’s upcoming Glee Live! concert tour and the prospect of his own solo album. While I don’t really love the coverphoto (Darren‘s wide open mouth, again?), the accompanying interview is a cute read. More »

A ‘Revelation’

Last night, David and I attended a performance of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion at the Music Center in downtown LA and I am happy to report that the show was utterly and powerfully incredible. I’ve only heard the best things about Alvin Ailey shows and I was so pleased to learn that everything I heard turned out to be true. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Ailey‘s masterpiece Revelations, that particular piece was performed last night … along with new and older pieces. It was truly a night to remember. More »

Julie Taymor’s ‘Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark’ Is Dunzo!

Early last month we learned that famed director Julie Taymor had been fired from her show Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark due to numerous cast injuries and across-the-board terrible reviews. Just a couple weeks after that news broke, lead actress T.V. Carpio was injured so severely during a performance that she had to leave the show, adding to the already long list of actors injured by the show. Today we learn that Taymor‘s vision of the show, the one that cost $70 million to produce, will end entirely this weekend. After the final shows play this weekend, Turn Off the Dark will close for 3 weeks so that the entire show can be overhauled. Without question, the end of Taymor‘s vision of the Spider-Man mythos will be the greatest failure of her career. More »
