Grammy-winning singer Lady Gaga producer DJ White Shadow has fired a few shots toward Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj and questioned her true worth.

Prior to deleting the initial comment, Shadow went straight at Minaj's head and called her talentless.

DJ White Shadow has vented his frustrations over Nicki Minaj. The producer, who helped produce Lady GaGa's third album Born This Way, took to Twitter to blast the rapper. He tweeted: "Ok. Nicki Minaj. F**k you. Get a grip. You are lucky, not talented. Stop. Please stop. XO. DJWS" The message was deleted shortly after.

White Shadow followed up the deleted comment with some clarification on his stance toward Nicki.

"Oops didn't mean to delete that. But I don't recall what I said, basically it was "come on son" to nicki. Cause you are wack.," Shadow tweeted November 5th.
"F*ck. What is wrong with the world."

"You can be judgmental. My views are my own. I am by myself. I don't hate. It's not hate, just dislike for poor taste."

"You forget I am a human with MY own opinions."

"I am allowed to have a completely independent opinion. Cause I am paul. Not anyone else. And that is my feeling. So goodnight." (DJ White Shadow's Twitter)
Over the summer, one of Lady Gaga's fans called out Minaj for jacking her style.
Nicki Minaj will probably never escape the Lady GaGa comparisons, but it does seems as thought they are starting to get under her skin. The reigning Queen of Hip-Hop was recently heckled by a Lady GaGa fan as she exited an airport. The fan called her a GaGa "rip off" and told her that she "needs to stop copying Lady GaGa." In the video description it says that Nicki called the overzealous GaGa fan a "b*tch," but I didn't hear it. Did you? Glad to see Nicki kept her cool in this situation. Do you agree with the fan, is Nicki a GaGa clone? (All Hip Hop Rumors)

A few months back, the Young Money star addressed the frequent comparisons.
"We are in completely different lanes. First of all, I'm a rapper. I'm from southside Jamaica, Queens," Nicki said in an interview. "Gaga's a fantastic artist, you know, she paved her way. She's opened her own lane. But I think that I have my own lane, and we never cross. Ever. So, you know, I really don't get the comparison anymore. Our music doesn't sound the same. Our stage presence is not the same. I just can't see the similarities." ("Nightline")


Obama Lines Up Stevie Wonder, Lady Gaga, Billie Jean King, Jay-Z & More In Campaign's Final Days

Barack Obama's campaign is relying on its roster of star surrogates to get the message out in the final stages of the race. Among the boldfaced names stumping for the president are 181 politicians, actors, musicians and athletes who are hitting the phones and campaign trail in support of the president.

The full list of names is available at The Hollywood Reporter, but here's a sampling, followed by the AP's report on the big push:

    Ice Cube
    Lady Gaga
    John Legend
    John Mellencamp
    Jason Mraz
    Maya Angelou
    Chris Rock
    Justin Long
    Jon Hamm
    Maggie Gyllenaal
    Chanel Iman
    Katy Perry
    Bruce Springsteen
    Sheryl Crow

For more, head over to THR. The AP's report on what the celebrities will be doing is available below:


CINCINNATI -- President Barack Obama is counting on former President Bill Clinton and Bruce Springsteen, top surrogates for his campaign, to carry his message. But he also has enlisted an army of A-list performers and public figures -- from Lady Gaga to Billie Jean King, from Jay-Z to Crosby, Stills and Nash – to promote his re-election.

The Obama campaign provided a who's-who of 181 actors, musicians, authors, athletes, mayors, Congress members, and more that fit any and all demographic groups in the president's target zone. All are being deployed to carry his message to television and radio in the waning days of a nip-and-tuck campaign.

On Saturday, Stevie Wonder played an unannounced concert for voters waiting in line to vote early in Cleveland. Wonder opened a rally for Obama by rocking the arena at the University of Cincinnati with a rendition of "Keep on Running."

Songwriter John Legend, actor Laurence Fishburne, and congressman and civil rights hero John Lewis, D-Ga., were among those who went to Ohio to lead a "Souls to the Polls" effort with local churches.

The list includes some of Hollywood's big names – Samuel L. Jackson, Anne Hathaway, and Scarlett Johansson – who were talking to Top 40 radio stations. Jackson and comedian Chris Rock were on stations with primarily African American audiences urging voters to go to the polls Tuesday.

Danny DeVito and members of the FX sitcom "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" have canvassed neighborhoods in Wisconsin, made phone calls and visited colleges in the state.

Others on the Obama list include Black Eyed Peas' front man Will.i.am and rock band leaders such as Jim James of My Morning Jacket and Jeff Tweedy of Wilco.

Celebrity sells. Now it remains to be seen if voters buy.

Lady Gaga plays biggest show ever

Lady gaga played the "biggest show" ever staged in Costa Rica.

The 'You and I' singer brought her 'Born This Way Ball' to the Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica stadium in San Jose on Saturday night (03.11.12) and was told it was the most attended concert in the history of the Central American country.

She wrote on her twitter page: "In Costa Rica tonight for stadium show. Thank you so much to everyone for buying a ticket to the BTWBALL. I will leave my heart on the stage ... Thank you Costa Rica, they told me it was the biggest show and turnout they've ever had. means so much to me. luckiest girl alive. (sic)"

Gaga's stage spectacular even eclipsed a massive heavy metal concert by Metallica and the 26-year-old pop superstar is thrilled with her achievement.

She added in other tweets: "the second biggest show to the BTWBALL in Costa Rica was Metallica. @LadyStarlightNy are we dreaming ... Fantastico (sic)"

Despite the success she is experiencing on tour, Gaga's thoughts and prayers are still with the residents of her hometown of New York City following the devastation caused by superstorm Sandy.

The proud New Yorker posted on twitter: "East coast how are you holding up? How are you New York? Staying strong i hope, thinking of you all the time. Can't even watch news feed ... I'll be there as soon as i can to help my old neighborhood. I'm on tour + can't let my fans down. I want to help with my hands with all of u (sic)"

Lady Gaga shows off fuller bikini body in Puerto Rico

Just in case any tabloids are aiming to call Lady Gaga’s bluff on her recent comments about being comfortable in her own skin, here’s proof that she really is - in bikini form.

Mother Monster stripped down to a skin-tight, blue-and-white bikini while relaxing on the beach with pals in San Juan, Puerto Rico Friday, and she didn’t care who saw.

Gaga, who admitted to gaining 30 pounds earlier this year after unflattering photos surfaced online, looked at ease in her Miller Lite bikini with friends DJ White Shadow and Tara Savelo.


The eccentric singer, 26, is in town for a few stops on her ‘Born This Way Ball’ tour.
Earlier this month, Gaga opened up to Stylist UK about the negativity surrounding her fuller figure, and confessed that she’s just done caring about the nay-sayers.

“I was acutely aware of some photos on the Internet - my mom called me and was like, ‘Did you gain weight?’ she told the magazine. “Everybody was telling me about it, and I didn’t really care.

“I thought, ‘Well, I don’t really care if they think I’m fat, because, quite honestly, I did gain about 30 pounds.’”


The singer also pointed to Adele as an example of an artist who doesn’t fit into society’s physical stereotype of what a pop star should look like, and yet has walked away from critics largely unscathed.

“Adele is bigger than me - how come nobody says anything about it?” she quipped. “She’s so wonderful and I think her confidence is something I have to match. She has set the bar very high for a lot of women.”

Lady Gaga's Latest Meat Dress Involves A Hot Dog

First off, can we just take a moment to soak in what's happening the photo above because, hahaha, it's freaking AMAZING. Lady Gaga was caught sporting a meat dress once again, but instead of wearing a couture handmade frock (like the one from the 2010 Video Music Awards) she wore, well, this hot dog onesie. With no arms. *golf claps* Over the weekend Gaga posted a video to her Little Monsters social network called "DJWS Vision No. 1" (DJWS = DJ White Shadow for those not in the know) with the caption, "OK we made u a surprise. This is DJWS vision no. 1 AND YES that is me in the hot dog costume trying to be funny." So, of course we watched that bad boy as fast as humanly possible and completely DIED at Mother Monster's armless dancing about a minute in. I mean, girl is definitely succeeding in the funny department. Mama like!

While the iconic original meat dress was made from actual slabs of beef by Franc Fernandez, Lady Gaga's latest incarnation is a little less literal. She sported a sausage-inspired ensemble complete with a bun, mustard and relish all along the top (it's only a few veggies short of a Chicago-style dog!) all in good fun. This year she's been wearing a shorter, more constructed version of the meat dress during her Born This Way Ball tour, but we have to say we're kiinddd of obsessed with the most recent rendition. Why? 1.) Because, um, it's hilarious and 2.) It actually makes us hungry. Like, we're salivating right now, and it makes us feel weird. But what do you think—do you like Lady Gaga's hot dog dress or should she just stick to one meat frock in her wardrobe?


Lady GaGa tweets old demo 'No Floods' following hurricane

The song, titled 'No Floods', has been available online since 2009, but the New York-born singer tweeted a link to the track following the impact of former hurricane Sandy on her home city.

"i wrote this song when i was 16. so weird to hear it now because of hurricane, (sic)"she posted."'NO FLOODS' hope this will cheer u up."

GaGa has been tweeting her support for residents affected by the storm throughout the week. She told fans that many of her family remained in New York City during the gale force winds and heavy rain and even joked that thanks to the name of the cyclone she would "never watchGreaseagain".

"i know its gonna be ok, but that water flooding downtown while my friends are sitting in the dark is making me sad,"she said."i love you new york.

"i'll be there as soon as i can to help my old neighborhood. I'm on tour + can't let my fans down. I want to help with my hands with all of u."

Earlier this week,GaGa wrote an open letterexpressing her devastation at the damage caused by the storm.

On Friday (November 2),NBC aired a telethon -Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together- which featured musical guests including Christina Aguilera, Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen. According to the network, the fundraiser has so far generated over $23m (£14.4m) for The American Red Cross, which is working to help victims of the disaster.

Live Nation Gifts Lady Gaga a 757 Jet

Lady Gaga was gifted a 757 jet by Live Nation. It was likely just a loaner to get her from A to B in luxury, and to express their appreciation at working with her, but who cares? She had her own darn jet for at least a night, complete with her name embroidered on the towels/head rests on the seats. While it was may not have been good for the environment, it was good for Gaga and her ego! She works hard for her money!

She shared internal and external photos of the jet and the catering on her Facebook page, and even shared a photo of herself, in red, white and blue sequins, with statement, bold eyebrows.

She posted: “Thanks for believing in Born This Way. Thank you Live Nation and monsters. hope u feel like I’m sharing this w u.”

Well, yeah, she was sharing the photos with us, but she wasn’t exactly sharing the experience with us. Now maybe if we had a seat on the plane, a bite of the eats that were being served and a backstage pass to Born This Way Ball tour, we might feel totally included but realize that’s not exactly realistic. We get it. We can dream though, right?

What do you think PoPCrushers? Is a jet excessive? Or does Gaga deserve it for all of her hard work?
