    1. If you missed the wild weekend that just passed, we’ve got you covered! Lady Gaga touched down in Toronto to premiere A Star Is Born at Toronto International Film Festival, and she’s been very busy. Through all the outfit changes, parties and events, Gaga again stunned a brand new wave of critics, bringing in even more incredible reviews. News first broke that she had arrived in Toronto on Saturday when Gaga was spotted with actor Hugh Jackman. The pair snapped a photo together before she headed off to film interviews for A Star Is Born with Bradley and the cast. They sat down with various people, including Good Morning America, e Talk and Fandango. Many of the interviews have now aired and can be watched below. She then attended a private reception and screening of the film, chatting with guests. Gaga finished off the night heading to Entertainment Weekly’s TIFF party. Don't be fooled by the pictures - all of this happened in one day! She was sure to show up in a different outfit at each event. On Sunday, Gaga and Cooper joined the ASIB cast for an hour long press conference at TIFF. They all answered questions from the host and the press, revealing more about the film and the process creating it. You can watch the full chat here. A few hours later, Gaga re-emerged on the red carpet in a stunning black dress and veil by Giorgio Armani. She met fans, signed autographs, posed for photos before heading off to stop for a few quick interviews. By the time she appeared inside the theatre to screen the film, she had made yet another outfit change and said a few brief words before the film began. Following the film, the cast took part in a 40 minute Q&A on-stage. The audience at one point gave her a roaring applause and standing ovation, which she felt overwhelmed by and began crying. You can watch it below. Gaga then went to the premiere’s afterparty at Masonic Temple. After a tight packed day of promotion and events, Gaga took the time to chat with a small group of fans who had waited for her. She posed for a few photos and signed their tickets as they chatted about the film and red carpet look. On Monday morning, Gaga shared a new set of photos to Instagram, before heading off to film more interviews with the A Star Is Born cast! The cover and article for Vogue Magazine’s October Issue starring Lady Gaga also hit the internet, which you can read here. After a short, tight paced trip, Gaga headed back home. She was spotted one more time at the airport where she met a few more fans.
    2. Lady Gaga recently sat down to speak with Swiss newspaper 20 Minutes to discuss "A Star Is Born", her upcoming Las Vegas residency and also confirms that she is working on her sixth studio album! The interview was not published in English, so we have translated it below. You can read the original here. After appearing on the big screen, the New Yorker takes the lead in the first film directed by actor Bradley Cooper. She plays ... a singer. What made you decide to accept the role of Ally in "A Star Is Born"? I took comedy classes as a teenager, and this is a facet of my life as an artist that I have always wanted to explore. My meeting with Bradley Cooper (editor's note: director of the film) was decisive for this project. He came to my California home and I read his passion in his eyes. I totally trusted him by giving me his full staging. This is the first time we see you without the makeup and costumes of Gaga ... It scared me, at first, to be natural. But Bradley had such strength in him that he pushed me to show my vulnerability to the camera. There was not a single time I was afraid of my appearance in this movie. I just wanted to be in the skin of the character. In "A Star Is Born", your characters father has a preponderant place. What about you and your father? I am a real daddy girl in the sense that I have always loved my father and that I do everything today to take care of him. It also helped me play my character, Ally, who works in a restaurant all night and looks after her dad when she comes home. My father has not yet seen the final version of the film, but he will be with me at the premiere in Hollywood in late September. What advice would you give to young Swiss artists who will read this interview? You have to believe in yourself and not try to change yourself to please others. There are some details of my character in "A Star Is Born" that have been added to the storyline from my personal experiences. When I started, I was really advised to have my nose altered. And I refused because I am proud of my Italian origins and my appearance. An artist must know how to be loved for what he represents. And especially not to comply with the expectations of others. It's my originality that made me Lady Gaga. You will give a series of concerts from the end of the year in Las Vegas. What can we expect? It was Elton John who decided me because we are longtime friends and I am the godmother of his children. I saw his show in Vegas and he brought tears to my eyes with his energy and dynamism. I've been working on my career for ten years and this engagement in Vegas will allow me to invent something new for my fans. There will be two totally different shows to show various facets of my personality. Enigma will be a gathering all my hits and the second will be more jazzy and retro. When will Gaga return to Switzerland on stage? Not in the next two years. In addition to my Vegas shows, I'm working on a new album. And I just finished the last details of the soundtrack of "A Star Is Born". Apart from the songs in the the film, it also includes several unreleased tracks that only appear a few seconds on the screen, so full of surprises. And tell your readers that I'm waiting for my Swiss fans in Vegas this winter!
    3. From glamorous boat rides to a blackout at the premiere of her first major film as a lead role, we have Lady Gaga’s “A Star Is Born” Venice International Film Festival premiere covered for you. It all began when Gaga mysteriously started teasing on Instagram that she had arrived in France, before heading to Venice. Within hours of the close-up picture of her watch telling the local time and the full-body outfit shots, it was confirmed she had touched down in Paris to promote “A Star Is Born”. For the next few days, she and fellow ‘ASIB’ star Bradley Cooper, who also directed the film, were seen meeting together filming interviews. Gaga also reportedly was spotted attending a photo studio, so keep a look out for her new photoshoot soon. It’s safe to say they will be used in upcoming media promoting the film. Then on Thursday, Gaga touched down in Venice, Italy ready for the world premiere of A Star Is Born, at the The 75th Venice International Film Festival. Before she even arrived at her hotel, which she arrived at via boat, glamorous paparazzi photos began taking the internet by storm of Gaga posing on the vessel. Who knew that candid photos would look like something out of a proper photoshoot? And finally, the big day came. Early morning on Friday, the very first screening of the film began. Critics and reporters had traveled from all around the world to watch the film. At midday, both Gaga and Cooper attended a press conference. In the 25 minute event, they answered many questions regarding the film and their experience in creating it. Gaga explained that Bradley “pull[ed] a vulnerability” out of her that she “may not have been able to get out of herself. "I never wanted to be viewed like other women, I wanted to be my own artist and have my own vision. I think its the same for Ally in this film, she’s navigating her career and she’s trying to find her place as she transforms”, Lady Gaga added. Later that night, the pair arrived once again at the big Gala, after both had an outfit change. Gaga stepped out in a fabulous feathered Valentino Fall/Winter 2018 Haute Couture ballgown. They walked side by side down the red carpet to hundreds of photographers, amongst all the flashing lights. Irina Shayke and longtime friend Donatella Versace also walked the red carpet. After posing for photographers for nearly a total of 10 minutes, both Gaga and Cooper met hundreds of fans who had waited all day (some since the night before) to get a glimpse of the pair. As she was about to wrap up her red carpet walk, she took one final step back out to pose, in the pouring rain, and kindly declined when offered an umbrella. She looked like a true Hollywood star and the photographs are priceless. Once done taking pictures and signing autographs, both took their seats inside the theatre to watch the final cut of their upcoming film, in a room of hundreds of others, for the very first time. We also attended and watched the screening of the film. You can read our review here. Barely twenty minutes into the screening of the film, the venue was reportedly struck by lightning and the power went out. While staff worked to get the power up and running, the audience began to applaud Gaga for the short tease of the film they had already seen. And soon enough, the power was back, and the film resumed. Following the film, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper received a breathtaking 8 minute standing ovation from the crowd. The reality of the audience’s applause became all too much for Gaga, who started crying tears of joy while the hundreds in attendance continued to show their great appreciation for the film. Gaga and Bradley then headed to the second screening of the film that night. Then, the ratings and reviews began flooding in online, and the reaction to the film was outstanding. A Star Is Born was rated at 89% on Metacritic (now sitting at 87%) and received a score of 88% on Rotten Tomatoes, both indicating Universal Acclaim, with some major publications giving the film 5/5 stars! On their final day in Venice, the pair sat down for an interview with Italian radio station 'Radio 101'. To finish off the trip, Gaga and the Haus went for a walk through the city. The next day, both headed back home. Gaga was spotted in Malibu in a casual look and took selfies with a fan. After such an incredible week, she barely has a moment to rest before the next big event lined up; the Toronto International Film Festival, where A Star Is Born is next set to premiere. TIFF runs from September 6-16.

    5. Ticketmaster listed a new event for Lady Gaga today, and it appears to be tickets to her upcoming Las Vegas Residency! According to the webpage, a bundle titled "Enigma and Limited Jazz & Piano Engagement" goes on sale next Friday. No further details are known at the moment. It seemed the page was not meant to be made public, and has since been taken down. But it looks like an official announcement should be coming very shortly. Stay tuned!
    6. It was speculated recently online, but now we have confirmation that this rumor is indeed true! Lady Gaga and Scottish singer, songwriter, producer and DJ, SOPHIE, are working together on new music for Gaga's upcoming sixth studio album. Fans met the Scottish artist, known for her unique electronic synthesized and hyperkinetic pop production, after a show recently and filmed while asking if she was working with Lady Gaga on her next album. She simply responded "yes", adding that she works on alot of music and if it comes out then it will be cool, but she can "never tell" when or if the music will be released, and that Gaga is a cool person. But fingers crossed this music sees the light of day! SOPHIE joins fellow collaborators DJWS, BloodPop and Boys Noize who have all been hard at work recently in the studio making new music with Lady Gaga. There is no confirmation regarding when the album will be released, but a 2019 release seems most likely. Watch the video of SOPHIE confirming the news she is working with Gaga below:

    8. Lady Gaga sent in a personal video message to Heels On Wheels, A Homecoming Celebration over the weekend, a benefit concert in support of Jerad Bortz and Steven Skeels. In the heartfelt video, she says "I wanted to tell you from the deepest part of my heart that i have been thinking about you", and explains that she wishes "for recovery in all forms". Bortz and his partner were in a terrible car accident in February and while they never lost consciousness, it was a critically serious situation, as Jerad couldn't feel his legs. The event brought together the Broadway community at Stage 48 for a variety of performances and messages. Watch Lady Gaga's heartfelt personal video below.

    9. Get ready, Little Monsters! Lady Gaga has been hard at work in the studio crafting new music for a variety of upcoming projects. While not alot is known about the future releases, we can be certain that Mother Monster never disappoints! On Wednesday evening, German electronic music producer and Dj 'Boys Noize' tweeted this, prompting an exchange of tweets between the pair: But things were resolved quickly, as explained in a reply from Gaga: And finally, Boys Noize replied, teasing the new music: Beautiful weirdness? Sounds very intriguing! It is unclear what project their music is for, but chances are the pair are hard at work for Lady Gaga's upcoming sixth studio album, dubbed "LG6". Other confirmed collaborators include Dj White Shadow & Nick Monson. But it doesn't end there. On Thursday night, BloodPop® posted a picture of Gaga in a recording studio on his Instagram story. Following his work on various tracks from her fifth studio album "Joanne", it was revealed several months ago that the pair were collaborating for a new track said to be BloodPop® featuring Gaga (as opposed to being a track with Gaga as the lead artist), so it is likely she was re-recording vocals and polishing the upcoming single. We aren't sure when it is due, but is safe to assume the wait shouldn't be too long as BloodPop® has liked a selection of tweets from fans asking about the track. Check out the photo of the pair in the studio below!
