Indonesian cleric: Lady Gaga is forbidden

And right on cue, a top cleric in Muslim-majority Indonesia declares that Lady Gaga's upcoming Jakarta concert is a "forbidden" act that is "intended to destroy the nation's morality," according to the Jakarta Globe
Chairman Cholil Ridwan, of the influential Indonesian Council of Ulema, is honoring the rich Indonesian-Malaysian tradition of condemning Western pop stars for besmirching religious piety on their soil.
Past performers accused of soiling youthful morality include Kelly Clarkson, Rihanna, Linkin Park, Avril Lavigne and -- just recently in Malaysia -- Erykah Badu.
The cleric tells the Globe that these "cultural attacks" must come to an end.
Lady Gaga's psy-ops campaign to corrupt Indonesian morality is mounting. According to the Jakarta Post, fans lined up in the rain for tickets to her June concert, which sold out within hours.
Among the depraved acts Gaga has compelled from Jakarta girls: glueing cigarettes to sunglasses 

Rufus Wainwright: Singer Slags Lady Gaga, Says He's 'In Love With' Mark Ronson

After lashing out at a Scottish Cardinal for his views on same-sex marriages earlier this month, Rufus Wainwright took aim at pop star Lady Gaga for her songs and presentation in an interview with Music Week.

When asked about some of the lyrical content on his upcoming album 'Out of the Game' ("Look at you suckers/Does your mama know what you're doing?"), Wainwright said, "I think a lot of it has to do with Lady Gaga, to be honest. I totally admire her tenacity, her ambition and her strength of vision. There's just not one good song there."

Wainwright added that "people, especially gay men, are falling so hard for it," before describing Gaga's presentation as "a bit disingenuous."

"We are in this somewhat sinister period [and artists have] got to kind of toughen up and be real. I guess I want to put a little bit more grit into my presentation of what's happening in the world. It's about conveying what's inside us, as opposed to the return of the cone breasts. I find it predictable and boring."

Wainwright also elaborated on working with producer Mark Ronson on his new album, saying, "we kind of fell in love with each other."

"There's a real attraction between Mark and I, which is a little harder for me being gay," Wainwright said. "I have to battle with it. Whether it's the Beatles or the Stones orEurhythmics, there's an unrequited sexual, romantic energy in the studio -- and it becomes volatile if not dealt with."

Lady Gaga has not commented on Wainwright's statements nor has Wainwright added anything more since the article was released. Wainwright will release his new album late next month (May 1 in the U.S.) and begins a European tour in Copenhagen on April 23.

Lady Gaga 2012: 'Marry The Night' Singer To Ignore Media, Top 5 Most Memorable Quotes

Lady Gaga, the pop sensation known for her attention-grabbing fashion and performances, told Oprah Winfrey that she plans to cut all connection with the media. 

When talking to the iconic show host for her special airing Sunday, "Oprah's Next Chapter," the "Born This Way" singer said she is taking a break from interviews, according to The Chicago Tribune.
"Other than this interview, Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time," she said. "No press, no television, if my mom calls and says, 'Did you hear about that' I shut it all off."
This is a change of pace for the eccentric singer, as the 25-year-old has been known for media stunts. Her distinguished meat dress has become a staple of the pop star's image, and her 2009 performance of 'Paparazzi' at MTV's VMA ceremony was one of her first eye-catching endeavors.
With the starlet preparing for her media vow of silence, here's a recap of some of Lady Gaga's most memorable quotes.
1. "Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you're wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn't love you anymore."- Cosmopolitan Magazine, 2010
2. "Pop stars should not eat." - New York Magazine, 2010  
3. "I had a boyfriend who told me I'd never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I'd fail. I said to him, 'Someday, when we're not together, you won't be able to order a cup of coffee at the f--king deli without hearing or seeing me." -Cosmopolitan Magazine, 2010.
4. "I'm terrified of therapy because I don't want it to mess with my creativity." -Rolling Stone, 2010
5. "I have the right to choose whether or not I want to be a celebrity, and I don't want to be one...I'd much rather people write about what I wear and what I'm singing and what I do in my videos than about who I'm f--king. I mean, that, for me, is the kiss of death." -Rolling Stone, 2010.

Rufus Wainwright says Lady Gaga has no good songs

The singer revealed that the harsher lyrics on his new album are aimed at the pop star. 

Singer Songwriter Rufus Wainwright has revealed that Lady Gaga has inspired the lyrics of his new album, but not in the way you may think.
Rather than a complimentary inspiration, Wainwright has said that the critical lyrics on the album are all down to Gaga and the fact that she hasn’t got a good song in his opinion.
In an interview with Music Week, he said, "I think a lot of it has to do with Lady Gaga, to be honest. I totally admire her tenacity, her ambition and her strength of vision. There’s just not one good song there. People, especially gay men, are falling so hard for it."

He went on: "Certain things that she says: 'Look at me. I was like you one day and now I’m this – and you can do it too.' I find it a bit disingenuous. We are in this somewhat sinister period and artists have got to kind of toughen up and be real. It's about conveying what’s inside us, as opposed to the return of the cone breasts. I find it predictable and boring."
The singer’s new album Out of The Game features appearances by Martha Wainwright, Sean Lennon and Nick Zinner and is released on April 23rd

Blessing in disguise? Lady Gaga takes a vow of silence

Here’s some irony of Friday morning: Lady Gaga, the queen of flashy outfits and crazy stunts, is taking a vow of silence. Is she “Speechless” or just sick of the “Paparazzi?”
E! reported that Oprah was able to get an interview with the singer which will air this weekend. After that, Gaga has promised to finally shut up.
“Other than this interview, Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time. … No press, no television,” Gaga said.
Maybe she really doesn’t have anything left to say, but we doubt it. Gaga confirmed that she doesn’t like what the media says about her – “I don’t read a damn thing.”
Recently gaining 20 million followers on Twitter, it’s hard to believe her mouth will be shut for long. Don’t hold your breath, world, Gaga isn’t going anywhere.

Lady Gaga going on media hiatus

LADY Gaga plans to take a "very long" break from speaking, or even paying attention to, the media. 

She chose to make the announcement of her hiatus to Oprah Winfrey, in an "Oprah's Next Chapter" interview to air in the US tomorrow. The interview also features the singer's mother, Cynthia Germanotta.
"Other than this interview, Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time," explains Gaga. "No press, no television."
The eccentric singer added that she has already stopped paying attention to what is written about her.
"Even if my mum calls and says, 'Did you hear about ...' I shut it all off," she said. "I don't read a damn thing."
Ever since the singer, whose given name is Stefani Germanotta, appeared on the scene with Let's Dance in 2009, it seemed the public could not get enough of her dramatic costumes and outspoken interviews.
However, she has slipped from the center of the radar screen in recent months, even as Born This Way was nominated for three Grammys.
Her mother admits in the interview she and her husband didn't know what to make of their daughter's act at first.
Her mother says: "When Gaga started performing - I think it was at Joe's Pub downtown - she was in a bikini performing with Lady Starlight. She decided that night to actually light hairspray on fire. A lot of people left, and a lot of people stayed and thought it was cool. Her father said, honestly, 'I think she has a screw loose.'"
