Another new twist in Lady Gaga’s career – her latest single was just released officially as a country song. Well, at least what Lady Gaga calls country. More details, in her press release:
SANTA MONICA, CA – April 4th, 2011 – The country version of Lady Gaga’s smash hit “Born This Way” has become such a viral sensation since being released through her Twitter page that she has decided to officially issue the track for sale on April 5th with a portion of the proceeds to benefit charity. The “Born This Way – Country Road Version”, produced by Lady Gaga and Fernando Garibay, was recently recorded while on tour and features new Lady Gaga vocals and added guitar and harmonica. First released March 24th as a gift to her fans (she has become the first person on Twitter with 9,000,000 followers), overwhelming praise for the recording–marked by over 1,000,000 YouTube views in it’s first few days of release–has prompted Lady Gaga to release the track officially, with Lady Gaga, her record label, and her publisher donating a portion of the proceeds from sales

One of the most influential acts of the last 10 years, LCD Soundsystem, has called it quits. This week they performed a sold out show at the Madison Square Garden, at their home turf, New York.
The show was a mind blowing affair, over 3 and a half hours, revisiting many highlights from their career. One of the highlights of the show was the live collaboration with the other stars of the alternative scene, Arcade Fire, who joined James Murphy and the DFA gang for a one time version of North American Scum.
Goodbye LCD Soundsytem, you will be missed!

She was already called a has-been, a wash out, a pop figure from the past, but Britney Spears has managed to pull it off and shoot herself back to global stardom, with this glorious comeback. Hold it Against me is the first huge hit from her new come-back album, and the song even features an adventurous dubstep break in the middle.
The fight over the title of queen of pop has never been so fierce!
