1. Lady Gaga
Anyone who dismisses the 31-year-old New Yorker as just another mindless pop-churning digital diva (that’s Miley Cyrus) has never seen the multi-instrumentalist live. She’ll go down in history as one of the most influential (and successful) artists of the early 21st century. September 10th and 11th at Wells Fargo Center. Read more »
VP Joe Biden is taking to the Oscars to promote his message against campus sexual assault. Biden will be introducing Lady Gaga before her performance of Oscar-nominated “Til it Happens to You.” The song, which was released last year and is featured in the film The Hunting Ground, focuses on the act of sexual assault, the response of victims and friends, and the prominence of sexual assaults at colleges.

Lady Gaga during her “Born This Way” era.
I have always been a fan of Lady Gaga. Okay, not always – but I believe in her talent.
In an era where pop stars can barely hold a note, she belts them effortlessly while playing the piano, dancing, and experimenting.
But 29-year old Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta is at a crossroads in her career. The openly bisexual superstar reached new heights with albums like The Fame and Born This Way, but also gave us the tragic Artflop … I mean Artpop. Read more »

Wherever we go, whatever we do, we’re gonna go through it together.
That’s the word on the street when it comes to Lady Gaga possibly playing the famous burlesque star Louise, better known as Gypsy Rose Lee, in the upcoming Barbra Streisand remake of the popular musical Gypsy. And we’re loving the idea. Read more »
Our local jewelry design crush, Drew Ginsburg of Dylanlex, recently gained major street cred when Lady Gaga donned one of her designs in an Entertainment Weekly photo spread.

It’s the picture that has everyone, well, gaga: Mother Monster posted a gorgeous shot of her posing with the legendary Barbra Streisand on her Instagram account over the weekend. Given Gaga’s jazzy duets with Tony Bennett, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch for the pop star to sing alongside the divine Ms. Streisand. Read more »
It’s everything that we’ve been hoping for, and more: Lady Gaga started shooting her role in the upcoming American Horror Story: Hotel series, and according to several reports, and a ton of social media posts, Mother Monster is totally slaying. Read more »
Atlantic City is working overtime to get the gays down for a visit. This afternoon, Visit AC released a new video showcasing its entertainment lineup for 2015 and its chock full of gay and gay-adored entertainers. They’re pulling out the big guns, too. I’m talking Madonna (October 3rd), Lady Gaga (July 24th), Ricky Martin (October 17th), Wanda Sykes (June 12th and 13th), Margaret Cho (July 18th), Idina freaking Menzel (July 10th).What Ellen was too busy?
The concerts and comedy shows only scratch the surface of the other LGBT-specific events lined up for the summer. Others include Sandblast (July 17th to 20th), Fire Island Black Out (August 7th to 9th) and the Miss’d America pageant this fall. I also have word from a reliable, yet anonymous source that there will be a second club opening this summer that “focuses on the LGBT community.” Stay tuned for any updates.
Check out the entertainment-lineup video below. Get more info on dates and tickets here.
Neil Patrick Harris and Anna Kendrick during the Oscar’s opening number.
Neil Patrick Harris: I love you, but you were just dreadful last evening, despite your brief stint (no pun intended) in your underwear. Patricia Arquette totally rocked out major girl power. Gaga wore strange red gloves and then surprised the hell out of people later when she totally nailed an entire medley from The Sound of Music. People were uncontrollably bored as a whole. That essentially captures the highlights of last evening’s Academy Awards ceremony, which dragged on and on and on and on. The show finally came to life during a rousing performance of “Glory” by John Legend and Common during the last hour of the night, and the aforementioned Gaga number. Here, to save you the trouble of watching the first two and a half hours of the show on your DVR before things got really good, are our picks for the good, the bad, and the ugly of the night.

It’s Mother Monster like you’ve never heard her before: The epic duo of Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett are coming to the Borgata in Atlantic City on July 24 with their “Cheek to Cheek” tour, and tickets go on sale at 10AM this morning.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a giant rock, most likely you’ve heard and seen Gaga and Tony perform classic jazz hits from their duo album, which just won a Grammy on Sunday evening. It’s been said once, but it is worth saying again: This is amazing music, and we finally get to hear Gaga reach vocal heights outside of her pop routines. Case in point:
And we can’t forget the iconic Tony Bennett. At 88 years old, he can still croon like none other. The event is a perfect compliment to the Atlantic City resort’s new OUT at Borgata LGBT initiative, which includes plenty of travel and entertainment opportunities.
Tickets to the show run $125-250, and can be purchased here.
