Last night.

The VMA Awards.

If it encourages young people to muzzle, it’ll be worth all the autotuned, transhuman gyrating.

From China’s most popular satellite channel Hunan TV:

…playing to an audience of hundreds of millions of Chinese people worldwide, a group of retired senior citizens (over)cheerfully beat out a version of Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” in Changsha’s local dialect, accompanied by miniskirted Chinese musicians playing glass traditional Chinese instruments.


Lady Gaga is now demanding that photographers surrender the copyright of photos taken at her concerts – and photographers are incensed.

Washington, D.C. website TBD.com made this practice public on Friday when they published the release form given to their photographer Jay Westcott. In addition to standard release restrictions regarding the use of images shot at her concerts, the document states that any photos taken at the show  become the property of Lady Gaga. This an especially bold demand as the government has established that copyright exists the moment when a work is created, which in this case is the moment when a photographer clicks their shutter button.

Good luck with that, Miss Germanotta.

Starting this spring, the University of South Carolina will be offering a class on Lady Gaga.

Beg pardon?

The original course, Lady Gaga and the Sociology of Fame, was created and will be taught by Mathieu Deflem, a longtime USC professor of sociology and Lady Gaga fan. To the best of Deflem’s knowledge, this will be the only full-time, university-level course of its kind in the country.
