I’m going to be brief here, because there are only a few spots left for Saturday’s Lady Gaga Cardio Pop Workshop with Philly Dance Fitness. The 90-minute dance class will get you seriously sweaty as you learn routines to some of Gaga’s biggest hits.
The class is at the Arts Parlor in South Philly at 1170 South Broad Street, starting at 1 p.m. on Saturday. It’s $25 to join the fun.
Oh, and by the way, PDF founder Deborah Hirsch will be teaching a version of this class at our upcoming Be Well Philly Boot Camp on June 7th. Actually, it’ll be this class on steroids, because the Cardio-Pop Dance class she’s planning for Boot Camp will be a mashup of her routines from PDF’s Timberlake/Gaga/Beyonce/Michael Jackson master classes. So you definitely don’t want to miss that.

Can this week get any more diva-fabulous? We had just started putting our brains back together after Beyoncé blew our minds last Friday when, last night, Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga decide to duet on The Voice. Mind. Blown. Smitherines.

Following in Miley’s footsteps (that had to hurt a little), Lady Gaga took on the hosting and performance duties during this Saturday’s airing of Saturday Night Live, showing us that she’s quite the thespian. Here, I roundup some of Momma Monster’s best, worst and downright ugliest moments from the broadcast.

Before I start my rant on Lady Gaga’s just-released ARTPOP, I need to make one thing clear: I’m no Little Monster. Don’t get me wrong, I lived for Gaga during The Fame-era. The girl had me dreaming of disco sticks for days on end. One of my favorite earlier Gaga songs is “Fashion,” a super gay (and super under-appreciated) track from the film Confessions Of A Shopaholic. It’s hard to believe that was only five years ago. Back then, Gaga’s music felt new and had a fresh sound that had all us gay kids bluffin’ with our muffins. Then things started to go south. I was fine with the meat dress at the VMAs, but that weird egg hatch at the Grammys? Then came Born This Way, which, title track aside, was a long and exhausting production of preach-y lyrics and pranc-y beats. Throw in those weird American Horror Story-worthy faces she makes on stage and her recently announced plans to perform in space, and we have a performer who’s taking this fame-is-art-art-is-fame thing way too far. I find myself longing for the days of sick beats and poker faces and, ARTPOP is none of those. It’s simply too much art and not enough pop.

Today, Lady Gaga released a new track from her upcoming album ARTPOP, a duet with R. Kelly called “Do What U Want.” The single’s cover art features Momma Monster capitalizing on all the big-booty talk she received after the VMAs in August, showing her bent over wearing a flowery g-string.
On the mid-tempo track Gaga sings ”So do what you want / What you want with my body / Do what you want / Don’t stop, let’s party.” Really, Gaga? You’re saying that to R. Kelly? Hope you like golden showers!
Lady Gaga‘s new ad – make that “mini film” – for her fragrance Fame (said to to be inspired by blood and, um, semen) looks more like one of her elaborate music videos than the average perfume commercial. The 35-second clip’s not only produced by Ridley Scott, but it’s directed by Steven Klein – the same guy responsible for her “Alejandro” video. Here, the pop star rises from a black bath (what is it with Gaga and rebirth anyway?) as she takes charge of an army of hunks. Wonder what Madonna thinks of all this?

Fame by Lady Gaga - is the packaging "Gaga" enough?
The construct of fashion sends many a myopically inclined food nerd into a quiver of confusion. What is a pashmina and why do I want one? Is that poodle part of her outfit? What do you mean those models don’t eat???
But now, with The Philadelphia Collection–the city’s two-week fashion party–upon us, it is with great relief that we present a way for you to get up-to-date on the latest couture (should you be so inclined) while still surrounding yourself in the fuzzy bathrobe comfort of something you do know: food and drink.
Wed. 9/14: Project Valanni – Valanni continues its five-year-tradition of fashion-feting with a “Project Runway” -styled runway that runs through both dining rooms into the street. There will be special cocktails and a DJ, and oh, yeah, five designers showing off their men’s and women’s looks. 10 p.m. 1229 Spruce St., valanni.com
