It looks as if Lady Gaga will wear a piano — or at least a facsimile of a keyboard — on her head on her upcoming Born This Way Ball tour, which starts in Seoul on April 27. Giorgio Armani, who first designed for Lady G. at the 2010 Grammy Awards and who dressed her for the Monster Ball tour that year, released this sketch of one of the costumes he’s designed for the upcoming tour. A press release describes the outfit thusly: “On the…black bodice, transparent Plexiglas, black crystals and luminous studs create a Cubist composition of abstract guitars. The matching headpiece follows in the shape of a keyboard; the boots are black vinyl.” Three other costumes by Armani are almost as extravagant.
According to Billboard, Adele is leading in categories including Top Artist, Top Female Artist and Top Billboard 200 Artist. Her breakthrough hit, “Rolling in the Deep,” is a contender in seven different categories.
Adele has plenty of female companionship, as Rihanna and Lady Gaga are also finalists in a number of categories, with 13 for RiRi and 10 for Lady Gaga. Lil Wayne is also up for 10 categories, while party rockers LMFAO are finalists in 17.
As we are getting closer to the official announcement, the first 3 European tour dates for the Born This Way Ball have been announced earlier today and they include Ireland, France and Belgium. More European dates are set to be announced this week, so stay tuned for more!

Oprah and Lady Gaga kicked off Gaga’s new “youth empowerment” foundation, the Born This Way Foundation, at Harvard University just a couple of weeks ago.
Although Lady Gaga has been active in the anti-bullying movement, the Born This Way Foundation is not an anti-bully organization; rather, Gaga says the Foundation is a “youth-empowerment foundation.”
The Born This Way Foundation is currently holding a poster contest – FUN! – to find a “visual representation” of the Foundation.
The image should inspire, activate and move people. But most of all, it should give supporters a way to show their dedication to the Foundation.
Rarely far from a bottle of her beloved Jameson, 25-year-old American singer Lady Gaga has been flaunting her brand preference as conspicuously as her overexposed underwear. “My long-time boyfriend,” she said of Jameson while dedicating a song to the whisky at a concert in Dublin two years ago, he’s “always there for me when I need him.” Her peer at the top of the charts, 24-year-old Barbados-born Rihanna, offered this rousing tribute in Cheers (Drink to That), a catchy party-drinking song released two years ago: “Cheers to the freakin’ weekend/ I drink to that, yeah, yeah/ Oh, let the Jameson sink in/ I drink to that, yeah, yeah.”
Lady Gaga and Oprah, two of the world’s most powerful women, have been spending a lot of time together lately. Two weeks ago, Gaga launched her Born This Way Foundation at Harvard University with the help of Oprah, and now Mother Monster — alongside her own mother, Cynthia Germanotta — has opened up her home for an exclusive interview that will air on Oprah’s network next Sunday. Head below to check out a sneak peak of the two-hour interview.
The “Born This Way” singer, 25, told Winfrey – in an episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter that airs on OWN Sunday – that not only does she “want kids,” but she wants a “soccer team” full of them.
“Yeah, yeah, I do,” a (relatively) conservatively dressed Gaga told the talk show host, 58, when asked if she was serious about wanting a large family. “I mean I’m being superfluous [about the soccer team], but I don’t want to have one [child], I want a few.”
Gaga adds that she also wants a husband. Making a gesture to indicate a baby bump, the singer tells Winfrey, “I want to experience that.”
As part of her rapid rise to superstardom, Lady Gaga has always chatted with media outlets, divulging secrets from her past and speaking candidly to the press about her personal life. But now, ‘The Fame Monster’ has had it with the ‘Paparazzi,’ announcing plans to go into self-imposed exile following the airing of her special TV interview on ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter.’
In a preview of her chat with Oprah — which takes place in Gaga’s childhood home and includes mother Cynthia Germanotta — Mother Monster insists her Little Monsters wont be seeing or hearing much from her when it comes to interviews.
“Other than this interview, Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time,” the singer told the media mogul. “No press, no television, if my mom calls and says, ‘Did you hear about …’ I shut it all off … I don’t read a damn thing.”
Marketing experts reckon ‘Born This Way’ star makes a third of her cash through social media site.
The Wall Street Journal claims that the ‘Born This Way’ star has built up such a strong relationship with her followers on the social media site that it is worth one third of the reported $90 million (£56.9 million) that she made last year.
Marketing manager John Bonini, who works for Impact Branding & Design, claimed that the publicity and direct connection the singer has developed with her admirers through the site helps boost her earning potential, as well as ensuring that her fanbase purchase her music rather than download it illegally. He added: She really engages them and re-tweets stuff they say as if she was one of them.
