The Morning Mix: Lady Gaga Inks A Message For Her Little Monsters
Lady Gaga isn’t just paying lip service to her little monsters when she says she loves nothing more than her fans; she uploaded a twitpic of her brand new “Little Monsters” tattoo “on the arm that holds my mic… so proud.” We’re just happy she didn’t get the face of the raunchy creature from the 1989 gross-out kiddie flick “Little Monsters” tattooed on her body for all eternity. Whew.Did You Hear?
:: Lest anyone think Pink faked her way through her high-and-not-so-dry performance of “Glitter In The Air” on the Grammys, the singer addressed such scurrilous rumors on Twitter: “I have never lip synched [sic] in my entire life. I’m 100% against it.” [@Pink]

VIDEO REWIND OF THE DAY: Everyone’s buzzing about the re-recording of the charity single “We Are The World” (including us!). Let’s take a look back at the 1985 version, which aimed to provide relief to African famine victims — and featured significantly fewer stars in the studio than did the crowd-sourced 2010 version.
The original recording did bring together some of the world’s biggest musicians at the time, among them Billy Joel, Paul Simon, Cyndi Lauper, and of course, Michael Jackson. (Why Ghostbusters’ Dan Aykroyd showed up, we don’t know — perhaps his history as a Blues Brother?). Whatever, it’s probably the same reason Vince Vaughn swung by for the remake. Hopefully the updated recording will be just as iconic in 25 years.
Have a great day, everyone!
