Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett Jam In Their Low-Key “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” Video: Watch

Cheap And Cheerful
It will be interesting to see how Little Monsters and jazz enthusiasts respond to Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett‘s Cheek To Cheek LP but, judged solely on their merits, all of the songs we’ve heard thus far have been extremely pleasant. The unlikely duo dropped a low-key video for “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” today (August 26) and it’s the perfect antidote for the diva’s overwhelming, more-is-more ARTPOP visuals.

Originally recorded by Adelaide Hall way back in 1928, the swingin’ standard is a nice fit for Gags and Tony. It allows them to riff off each other and ham it up (ever so slightly). Those shenanigans are captured in the studio-based video, which finds Mother Monster modeling a variety of wigs and smoking a cigar. Her suave companion looks a little bemused but he’s clearly having a good time. Watch up top. More »

We Put A Ring On The Past 10 Years
At this Sunday’s (August 24) MTV Video Music Awards, Pharrell will be the one male facing off against female pop forces Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea and Sia in the Video Of The Year category. And of course we all know those names today, but who remembers that Panic! At The Disco once waltzed away from the VMAs with a Video Of The Year moonman? Or what song Green Day nabbed the award for in 2005? Or what year Britney Spears emerged victorious in the category?

Ahead of the latest staging of MTV’s annual extravaganza, we decided to flash back through the past decade, all the way back to 2004, to refresh our memories on exactly which artists and songs won the big prize on VMAs night. We then compiled snippets of all the winning clips into one two-and-a-half-minute video, which you can watch above. More »

The Summer 2014 Idolator Video Floppy Awards: Alison Gold, Farrah Abraham, Avril Lavigne, Lady Gaga & More Sweep The Floppys!

Blowin'!
Face it, kids: the MTV VMAs are hopelessly out of touch. I mean, Paris Hilton hasn’t even been nominated!

http://www.metro.us/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/paris-hilton-unicorn-main.gif

That’s why we here at Idolator have decided to right the music industry’s wrongs by celebrating its TRUE triumphs via our very first Video Floppy Awards. #sorrynotsorry all other award shows — you ain’t NOTHING next to Idolator’s Floppys!

Below you’ll find the snubbed videos that we felt were most worthy of being singled out in at least some category or other. Oh, and just FYI, we’ll be hauling the Floppys out whenever we damn well please. Why wait a whole year when the cycle of floptitude is constantly twirling around us at any given moment?

You’ve been warned. More »

10 Things To Expect From Madonna’s Next Album

She's Got A Secret...
When Madonna releases a new album, it isn’t so much an event as it is an international holiday.

Her Madgesty is now on her 13th studio album. 2012′s MDNA gave us just a little bit of the life we needed for the icon’s 12th release, but of course we wanted more. It’s only natural, given this is a woman who has consistently reinvented herself for three decades straight.

Now it’s 2014, which feels like the perfect time for her to drop off a new project and deliver that breed of cross-genre pop that only she can provide.

Details on the album thus far have been hit or miss: While other websites have speculated by way of Instagram posts and other random clues, Idolator played detective and dug up even more info on the album. Of course, nothing is conclusive since this is Madge, but we do have enough information to at the very least be excited for the project.

So without further ado, let’s see what we have in store from the Queen Of Pop herself. More »

Ibrawlator: Who Got Snubbed The Most By The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards?

Snubbed!
It’s that time of year again! A time to celebrate the year’s best videos at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, yes — but also a time to yell and scream at the sheer snubbery of it all.

Every year, a few beloved clips from our pop acts go ruthlessly unrecognized by the annual award show. We’ve been compiling a list of the most deserved videos that flew under MTV’s radar this year, but now we want to hear from you: What video do you think deserved a nomination (or ten!) this year?

Below are our most snubbed videos of ’14 — from Britney‘s “Work Bitch” to Lady Gaga‘s “G.U.Y.” and “Applause” to Demi Lovato‘s “Neon Lights.” All of these videos (and more) got a whopping zero nominations — so it’s time to speak out: Place your vote after the jump and serve justice for your faves! (Don’t see your fave on the list? Let us know in the comments and we’ll add it to the poll!) More »

Lady Gaga And Tony Bennett’s “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love”: Listen & See Their Tracklist

Loved Up
Following the release of “Anything Goes” and the unveiling of their Cheek To Cheek album cover, another track from Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett‘s joint jazz project has premiered in the form of “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love.” The song, originally performed by Adelaide Hall, dates back to 1928, and has been covered over the decades by everyone from Louis Armstrong to Billie Holiday to Rufus Wainwright.

You’ll know it immediately when you hear it. (Listen below.) We’re just curious at this point how Monsters will react to a full album of this type of material from dance-pop doll Gaga — and how Bennett’s fans will take to this pair-up in general. More »

Lady Gaga Unveils Album Cover For Tony Bennett Jazz Album, ‘Cheek To Cheek’

With each passing day, we tip-toe ever closer to the release of Cheek To Cheek, Lady Gaga‘s much anticipated jazz album with the legendary Mr. Tony Bennett.

The duo have been doing their fair share of #CheekToCheekPromo in the past few weeks and months — from an upcoming PBS special to the release of their darling lead single, “Anything Goes.”

Today, Gagaloo unveiled the Steven Klein-shot album artwork for the upcoming album due out in September.

“Artwork For #CheekToCheek by the incredible Steven Klein @SKstudly I love this photograph, and very honored to be in it with my Tony. We were just standing there talking, laughing, singing. Then someone very special snapped a memory. The lighting like a painting,” she explained on Twitter moments ago.

What do you think of the photo, Little Monsters? Check out the covers in full after the jump. More »

Lady Gaga’s Asian Fashion Game Is Not Of This World: 7 Pics

Lady Gaga has always had a bonkers approach to fashion but the outfits she has rocked on the Asian leg of her ArtRave tour are next-level insane. And we’re not talking about stage costumes. This is what Gags wears while sightseeing and clubbing. She warned us that her ARTPOP could mean anything but I still wasn’t ready.

Mother Monster’s otherworldly Asian looks are a stark contrast to the (comparatively) tame ensembles she has worn while promoting Cheek To Cheek (due September 23), her new album of jazz standards with Tony Bennett. I guess it’s hard to sing a Cole Porter classic like “Anything Goes” while rocking a pink hockey mask with a matching bow. Peruse Gaga’s wildest looks up top. More »

Lady Gaga And Tony Bennett To Perform ‘Cheek To Cheek’ Live On PBS In October

Get Your Jazz Up, Little Monsters!
Jazz lovers, Little Monsters and Bennetters (I don’t know, maybe it’s a thing?) unite! Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga are taking their Cheek To Cheek to the whole next level!

Following the release of their long-awaited jazz duets LP on September 23, the two musical lovebirds are teaming up on Friday, October 24 at p.m. ET on PBS to perform classic jazz standards, in solo and duet form, during ‘THIRTEEN’s Great Performances.’ The show was taped in front of a live studio audience (many of whom were students enrolled in arts programs) at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall on July 28.

According to a press release, the songs were all picked from the Great American Songbook, including “Sophisticated Lady,” “It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing),” “Lush Life,” “Anything Goes” and, of course, “Cheek To Cheek.” They’ll also be performing alongside a 39-piece orchestra (!). With any luck, Gaga’s puppy Asia will at least make a small cameo, perhaps playing some sort of doggy-sized tuba.
