One-hit wonders are a common phenomenon in the music business, and most of them have a fan base that insists their other songs are just as good. It’s rarer, though, to see a well established band break through with a surprise pop hit more than a decade into its career, “She Don’t Use Jelly” style. More »
Taylor Swift has been a little too quiet lately. Some might call that a blessing; this is, after all, a woman who can saturate your entire news feed without trying very hard, and one who is also known for trying extremely hard, a polarizing figure who’s been known to wear out her welcome even among … More »
Who knew the Moulin Rouge-era “Lady Marmalade,” which pointed to the past in so many ways, would become such a prescient harbinger of the future? The year was 2001, and to promote his long-awaited followup to Romeo + Juliet, Baz Luhrmann rounded up a pop-star Avengers of sorts to sing a 27-year-old disco hit that … More »
In an interview last year with Rolling Stone, Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers didn’t mince words when issuing his assessment of Lady Gaga‘s single, “Perfect Illusion.” “It sucks,” Pall bluntly stated. Even with the more diplomatic on of the two, Drew Taggart, stating “She’s a great artist,” the superstar EDM duo faced a firestorm of criticism, mostly from Gaga fans, but also from the queen of pop herself.
Enter Gaga with her latest track, “A-YO,” which premiered June 6. Gaga sent out a slew of tweets promoting the track — one of which was directed at The Chainsmokers, asking them light-heartedly (presumably?) whether her newest track met their standards.
Interestingly, on the same day as Gaga’s new single releases, The Chainsmokers went on air with Howard Stern to discuss a range of topics, including the original incendiary comment from last October, with Pall stating that it “came out so much worse” than intended.
Pall elaborated, “I’m 32 now and no one’s given a shit about what I’ve said for the first 30 years of my life…I felt bad because I don’t think it’s cool to make those sort of judgements [in public] anyway. Like, keep it to yourself.”
Gaga’s newest album Joanne arrives Friday. She will also be Saturday Night Live‘s musical guest this weekend.

Diplo took to his Instagram account on Thursday to reveal a possible hint regarding his presence at this February’s Super Bowl halftime show. In a post tagged #tbt, Diplo is seen posing with Lady Gaga at last year’s Super Bowl. His description reads, “we back again next month,” leading followers to discern that the two are working on some sort of dual performance.
A source close to the event told Entertainment Weekly that Diplo would have nothing to do with the halftime show, however. “Maybe he’s DJing a party I’m not aware of,” the source told EW. “But he’s not involved with the halftime show.”
During her performance, Lady Gaga will most likely play her Grammy-winning song “Bad Romance,” alongside new material from her album Joanne.
