For the Record: Lady Gaga Turns to Jazz



  • Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have just released the first single off their upcoming jazz album Cheek to Cheek, a cover of Cole Porter‘s “Anything Goes”, and now I’m hoping that she gives up pop forever and sticks to jazz.

  • The queen of creepy and dreamy does it again with the title track of her album Ultraviolence, in which Lana del Rey sings about an abusive relationship dressed as a bride. The video was recorded on an iPhone and directed by her boyfriend Vogue photographer Francesco Carrozzini:


  • And Ne-Yo finds a way to both brag about his bank account while preaching about the things that “Money Can’t Buy” in his brand new single of the same name, the first off his upcoming album Non Fiction, due this fall:
