Late 2000's Pop Sensation Lady Gaga Recording New Music?



Stefani Germanotta aka Lady Gaga is making some #noize as Joanne producer Bloodpop was snapchatting away photos of the "Scheiße" hitmaker in the studio, as well as edm producer Boys Noize (who worked with the likes of BIGBANG and Kelis).

Don't know if she's putting last minute touches to the soundtrack of her movie A Star Is stillBorn which is out this fall. Gaga teased Joanne sessions on social media around 2015, including on her account for alter ego Jo Calderone. But until information is revealed, we could be in for another album within the next year. From what we've witnessed in pop herstory, I don't know if multitasking an album and movie campaign would work out, so best of luck!



Time in the studio:

ONTD Investigates: Who was the famous actor Kaley Cuoco dumped for being a poor tipper?


American actress and one of the stars of the CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory, Kaley Cuoco, has been in the headlines recently for dumping a famous ex. Cuoco recently shared with Vogue a story about a celebrity ex she dated back when she was just 19 and starting her acting career. She ended the relationship because, are you ready? He was a poor tipper.

According to the actress: “I met a hot guy. An actor. I will not name his name. Let's call him, John. Because if I told you his name, you'd know who he is. We start dating and we go on all these really adorable dates. We took my dog on walks and we came back to my cute, new, little condo and we’d watch movies. At 19…I’m looking at this guy going, I’m going to marry him. This is the father of my children, I'm so in love! He was magical - everyone that met him loved him too and we looked cute together. Nothing could go wrong,” she tells Vogue.

While on their first dinner date, “John” insisted on paying and took the bill and just stared at it for sometime until he pulled his phone out to calculate an 8% tip. Cuoco was horrified.

He's multiplying like an eight percent tip. Oh my god. He's cheap, he's cheap! He's a bad tipper. It started to get to the point where when he would pay - which was hilarious he wanted to pay for everything - I'd make up these lies. I would run back inside, throwing cash to the server or whoever we owed money to. I didn't know how we would progress. This entire relationship was built on lies because I'm just lying to him. People thought he was so generous, but I was going broke. I wasn't on Big Bang at this point,” she explains.

She ends by saying, “I did go back in and tip the server, I never went back into that restaurant again, and we split up a week later. Well, there you go chaps. If you ever want to stand a chance of impressing Kaley Cuoco at some point in your life, by all means, tip well.

So who is the cheap Mr. Krabs?

Actress Samia Shoaib Tells How Allison Mack Tried to Recruit Her Into Cult




  • Samia Shoaib met Smallville actress and current cult follower/leader Allison Mack at an audition in 2003. She recalls Mack immediately wanted to be her friend and she still has the "desperate, frantic" e-mails Mack sent her (“Is there anything you have read that you can send to me? I would love to get into your brain a bit?!”)

  • Every time Samia met Mack to talk, Mack seemed “fragile and gaunt” but not dangerous. She thought Mack was absolutely physically suffering but didn't find her to be dangerous. She's shocked by Allison's arrest.

  • The women discussed work and feminism but Mack would turn convo on a Nxivm-affilliated woman’s group called JNess, and was very vague about what it was.

  • Samia thinks Mack lost interest in her once she found out how old she was, in her late 30s.

  • Allison invited Samia to a JNess dinner before losing contact and Samia recalled an e-mail from 2013 which in hindsight is...off: “Thank you for last night! I had a lovely time with you and [your friend]. You are both delicious women.”

Ansel Elgort is Particular About Hats



Vulture sat down to interview Ansel Elgort and Suki Waterhouse about their new movie Jonathon, which is screening at Tribeca. But Ansel was not a fan of their branded merch, throwing a hat and telling the interviewers that "you guys need to step your merch game up". Meanwhile, Suki smokes a vape pen and wonders how Ansel keeps his shoes so clean.

So many questions. Is Vulture's branded merch "just not fire"? Do you vape in interviews? Do you like Ansel's song more than he does?

James Cameron Hopes for ‘Avengers’ Fatigue



He’s a fan of the “Avengers” movies, but he fears that they have dominated too much of the genre as of late.

“I’m hoping we’ll start getting ‘Avenger’ fatigue here pretty soon. Not that I don’t love the movies. It’s just, come on guys, there are other stories to tell besides hyper-gonadal males without families doing death-defying things for two hours and wrecking cities in the process. It’s like, oy!”

Thandie Newton explains feeling shut out from the Time's Up movement



Thandie Newtown has opened up about being an advocate for women in film for two decades and recently feeling shunned by the Time's Up movement.

She sexually mistreated during an audition with an unnamed director when she was 18 years old.
"Who wants to be the first person to say, 'This man raped me, and he is also the head of a studio, or he is a director?' That’s hard."

She wasn't invited to be part of Time's Up, a moment she describes as "very painful". 
"I wasn’t hot enough. I wasn’t mainstream enough and I wasn’t going to be at the Oscars this year, even though I am having a renaissance in my career."

ONTD Original: Throwback to Britney and Gaga's Parking Fails 🚗



Celebs: they're are just like us! And they get into embarrassing car accidents. Yes there are threatening cases that happen in the streets, but sometimes sh** goes down in the parking lot too.


Britney Spears in Hollywood (2007)


It's no secret 2007 was a rough year for her, and the presence of paps did not help either. Britney was heading to a pharmacy in Hollywood driving her Mercedes station wagon, when she accidentally pulled up a little too soon and rear-ended the car next to her. Cameras flashed away as she readjusted her parking position and got out to see the damage.

Check out the clip:

Lady Gaga Rear-ending Mark Ronson's Car (2016)

Gaga, likely due to the New Yorker in her, was a late bloomer and obtained her driver's license in the same year at the age of 30.

This accident was not recorded, but the aftermath was conveniently captured for the filming of her Five Foot Two documentary. Gaga did some nice damage to music producer Mark Ronson's car with her Ford Bronco when she was on her way to the studio to work with Ronson and Florence Welch. She confronted him before they started working. (what a lovely way to begin a recording session)

Check out the clip:

These moments bring up the question about the recent trend of proclaiming gays can't drive over social media.

So fellow LGBT/ONTD members, do you find driving and parking stressful or in anyway difficult? Are you a gay who can't drive?

She said "I wanted to do romantic comedies and just be the girl not the Spanish girl or the Latina girl. I just wanted to be a person. I never let anyone pigeonhole me or put me in a box (and say) you can't do this or you can't do that. And every step of the way people try to do that to you especially when you're a woman".

"Watch How a Pop Hit is Made" - Zedd, Maren Morris, & Grey's 'The Middle'



The New York Times' Diary of a Song series chronicled the making of 'The Middle' by Zedd, Maren Morris, and Grey. The video won't embed, but you can watch it HERE

How did the song come to be?

  • The Monsterz and Strangers, a production and songwriting team from LA, made produced a demo of the song

  • Sarah Aarons, a songwriter from Australia (who also wrote Zedd's Stay), wrote lyrics, and sang them over the Monsterz/Strangers demo

  • They really liked it what they came up with, and sent the demo to bigger producers. Grey picked it up, added onto the production, and sent it to Zedd to finalize

  • Zedd started looking for a vocalist; he essentially wanted someone who sounded exactly like Sarah (the songwriter) but more polished

  • 14 singers sent in vocal demos. The video plays six of them (per ATRL/Reddit, they're (in order): (Anne-Marie, [second singer unknown], Ryn Weaver, Tove Lo, Charli XCX [i love her but LOL], Zara Larsson)

  • They almost gave up but heard Maren Morris's demo and chose her because she 1. sounded the most like the original songwriter and 2. thought she would be an original choice because she's a country singer

TL;DR - Zedd did like 0 work on the song but gets top billing

Bernie Sanders Faces Criticism for Anti-Sex Trafficking Bill; Cardi B Called on to Educate Him







Bernie Sanders, who earlier this week noted that Cardi B was right in drawing attention to the importance of social security, is now coming under fire for invoking Cardi B while allegedly not supporting sex workers. Critics point out that he voted for FOSTA-SESTA, the Stop Enabling Sex-Trafficking Act which was passed last week, which they argue does not draw enough distinctions between sex trafficking and consensual sex work.

Adult film actress Sydney Banks pointed out that Cardi B is a former stripper and accused Sanders of using her while voting for legislation that could endanger sex workers.

Ginger Banks, another adult film actress is making a video to explain to Sanders the problems with the bill.

MoviePass changes shit up AGAIN, says goodbye to its 1-movie-per-day model for new subscribers



* Last week, MoviePass announced a new partnership with iHeartRadio, where new subscribers can sign up for a bundle containing three months of MoviePass and a three-month trial of iHeartRadio's streaming music service. The cost is $29.95.

* But there's a catch! Under this new subscription bundle - which btw is the only option for new subscribers as of today - you are limited to a measly four movies per month. Under MoviePass' old plan, you could watch a movie a day.

* If you've already subscribed to MoviePass, you have nothing to worry about. Yet. This new plan only affects new subscribers.

THE DEVIL AND FATHER AMORTH
William Friedkin's new film, The Devil and Father Amorth, is now out in a limited release!


  • In the short clip, Friedkin says that the purpose of The Exorcist film was the mystery of faith, based on something that was said to have happened.

  • He also discusses how in the film, he tried to rationalize what was going on, and that if it was demonic possession, then it was directed at the priest losing his faith, and not Regan.

A much longer interview (approx 30 minutes) with William Friedkin can be found here. In the interview, Friedkin discusses his opinion on the exorcism case that spawned the novel The Exorcist and the subsequent film.

The Atlantic's review of The Devil and Father Amorth is worth a read!

Shania Twain would have voted for Tr*mp



I would have voted for [Trump] because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both. If I were voting, I just don’t want bullshit. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right.

Robin Thicke’s Girlfriend April Love Geary Shuts Down Haters After Sharing Topless Breastfeeding Pic



She posted on her IG a semi-censored photo of herself nursing their baby girl Mia while fully topless, prompting several people to leave criticizing comments.

Criticism 1
"I’m all for breastfeeding and having a choice how to feed your baby but WHY do people feel the need to post pictures of themselves doing it?! Especially the new pic of Robin Thicke’s gf! She’s got hair done, makeup on, both boobs out. So strange. What’s the need?? #opinions.”

Geary replied :
"Maybe the next time you want to criticize me for posting a picture of myself breastfeeding you should really take a look at the pictures you've had taken. Not that taking nudes are wrong! The naked body is a beautiful thing! But don't be a hypocrite mama."

"If you think seeing women post pics of themselves breastfeeding is weird then ya'll need to grow up...it's just a boob. Calm down ya'll."

Criticism 2
“Another child with divorced parents. Will you guys stop the madness lol kids aren’t a joke like this relationship.”

Geary replied :
“I mean, we gotta be married before we can get divorced bro,”
