    1. Lady Gaga will grace the cover of ELLE US Magazine’s December issue. It’ll include an interview to the star by the one and only Oprah Winfrey, to whom she opened up about her career and mental health. The news broke when Elle editor-in-chief Nina Garcia shared a fashion film from the cover photoshoot set on Instagram. Gaga stuns in a variety of different outfits and accessories by a myriad of brands, including Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Balmain, Armani, Givenchy, Tiffany & Co and more. LISTEN THE FULL INTERVIEW BELOW: When asked about how she has become more of herself over the past 10 years, Gaga said: “I consider myself to be a kindness punk. I look back at everything I’ve done, and I look at what I’m doing now, and punks, you know, have a sort of reputation for being rebellious, right? So for me, I really view my career, and even what I’m doing now, as a rebellion against all the things in the world that I see to be unkind. Kindness heals the world.” She also dishes out on letting go of her character as Ally: “Well, actually, the character of Ally stayed with me for a long time. I had to relive a lot of my career doing that role. I don’t know how you feel when you’ve acted, but for me, I don’t view it as filming a movie. I film it as living the character, and it’s a moment in my life, so I relived it all again, and it took a long time for it to go away.” Read the full interview here and grab your copy of ELLE US Magazine when it hits the shelves.
    2. Lady Gaga and David Beckham reflect on their careers in this video, which introduces the second part of the Tudor Watch's 'Born To Dare' campaign. Watch below. Lady Gaga opened up about her partnership with Tudor in a new interview by the Telegraph.uk. Read an except from the interview below: Two years ago, when Tudor announced Lady Gaga as its first official celebrity ambassador alongside David Beckham, some of the brand's die-hard fans expressed their reservations. The link between the then 91-year-old company and the outspoken artist and activist felt tenuous to them, but for Tudor the message was clear. Lady Gaga spoke with the Telegraph about her partnership with the brand and opened up about why she chose to be an ambassador for them which you can read below. Tudor agreed to work with director Mark Romanek for its very first campaign with Gaga. The idea was to have the two sides of Gaga battle against each other in a piano duel.The result is a short film that she refers to as daring, celebrating her talent as a musician and relating it to Tudor's talent as a watchmaker. "Sometimes in this industry, people just want to use your face and your fame to sell a product, but that is not at all what this is," she says. Gaga likens it to her two different shows currently in Las Vegas, Enigma and Jazz & Piano. "It's like the Tudor commercial, showing two sides to me," she says. "I came to Vegas, and thought why only offer one part of what I do when I've been performing jazz music since I was a little girl? Why wouldn't I bring all of the weapons in my arsenal with me to tackle this town?" "Style was almost like shedding a skin. I would dye my hair, or wear a wig, or change my clothes, and my style would just be completely different because I wanted to feel like a different person. "I'm more grown up now and my style has changed, but I still transform from day to day. There's a lot of pressure in the world to look a certain way and I think people try to keep up all the time. I'm not really into that. When I'm zigging, I like to zag later." [...] Tudor gave me a wide variety of watches for all sexual identities. I experiment with stacking them and wearing multiple watches together. It might seem silly to some, but I think it's quite fun and daring to wear several watches that all tell the same time at once." "I reinvent myself because I like to," she says. "It challenges me. I've asked myself recently, 'Why do you always have to make something new? Why can't you just relax?' And the answer is, 'I don't know'. The reward is in the creative process - and that's also something that Tudor loves, being innovative and different but also honouring its heritage as a brand." Despite being fiercely proud of her music, Gaga insists that she would rather people remember her for speaking out. "I think that if you become a big star, you have a duty to use your voice for good, to inspire young people to be brave, to have a purpose in the world that goes beyond their beauty or being loved for having lots of [social media] followers," she says. "If I'm not artistically fulfilled by a collaboration and I don't believe in what it stands for, then there's no point. Working with Tudor is working with people who don't try to change me to sell their product, which is unique. The brand is a rarity, a diamond." Read the full interview here.
    3. Bappi Lahiri has revealed that he recently recorded two duets with Lady Gaga. The Indian singer, composer and producer recently broke the news while speaking to the Mumbai Mirror, where he opened up about the upcoming tracks. He didn't give many details away, but he did explain that Gaga sings both tracks in English while he sings in Hindi. While no release date has been set yet, Lahiri said that he is now waiting for the release of the two tracks to be green lit, and he hopes they are released by the end of the year. He recently celebrated 50 years in the industry as a composer, and is famous for popularising the use of synthesised disco music in Indian cinema. The news of this collaboration broke just days after Gaga tweeted 'Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavnatu', a Sanskrit mantra and Hindu prayer. It translates to "May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all". It is unclear whether these tracks are intended for Gaga's upcoming sixth album or not, but it looks like new music is definitely on the way. Read an excerpt from the interview with Bappi Lahiri below. Speaking to the Mumbai Mirror, he said, "Yes, two duets, with her singing in English and me in Hindi in my inimitable style. We are now waiting for the release to be greenlit, hopefully by the year-end." You can read the full article here.

She dazzled in a variety of outfits, showcasing her immense vocal talent performing songs from the Great American Songbook, as well as stripped down versions of her own hits. The stage set-up is very reminiscent of her 2015 "Cheek To Cheek" tour with Tony Bennett, using some of the same lighting and seating . The show kicks off with a message from Tony, and a cover of Frank Sinatra's "Luck Be A Lady", leading into "Anything Goes" by Cole Porter. The 2 hour show also features tracks covered on her duet album 'Cheek To Cheek', such as "Lush Life" and "Bang Bang". Bennett also joined Gaga onstage as a susprise guest, performing a few songs together. During the show, different interudes are shown on screen as Gaga makes an outfit change. In these clips, she discusses the history of Jazz, how it feels to perform it, why she returned to it and more, while one of her early tracks "Captivated" is played on piano.

    9. Lady Gaga kicked off the first ‘Enigma’ show of her Las Vegas residency last night, and we were there to experience it! She started the show flying in from above the crowd, proving that this is no ordinary residency show within mere seconds, much like her Super Bowl performance, with her debut single, “Just Dance”. She finally lands on the stage, an other-worldly, distant planet looking spectacle designed by Eli Russell Linnetz (who also designed the merch). She then got straight into other hits from her debut album, including “Poker Face” and “Love Game”. This show was full of outfit changes, props, and most importantly, energy. Many songs that she had only performed as ballads returned in full studio form, including “The Edge Of Glory” and “Yoü And I”. The setlist [full below] has already proven to be one of her best, containing several of her global hits, as well as deep album cuts that haven’t been performed for many years. She didn’t shy away from any of her studio albums, performing tracks from every one of them, including her most recent Soundtrack for “A Star Is Born”. Many fan favourites were revived for the residency, including “The Fame”, “Government Hooker”, “Dance In The Dark” and Beautiful, Dirty, Rich”. Petga, from the de-commissioned ARTPOP app, also makes an appearance. With a fresh look, and a new name, Enigma, she is a key part of the show’s storyline, guiding Gaga throughout the way. She is seen in several interludes which also feature new music by producer Boys Noize, who has been working on Lady Gaga’s upcoming sixth album expected to drop in 2019. Many other celebrities attended the show to support Gaga, including Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, James Charles, Regina King and Adam Lambert. Katy was seen multiple times throughout the night singing and dancing along to the performances. Gaga also hinted during the show that her residency may be extended, saying “I’ll be here for two whole years, three if I’m lucky.” As of now, her Enigma and Jazz & Piano Las Vegas residency continues through til November 9, 2019.

    15. As news broke of the devastating Woolsey fires in California moving closer to residential areas, Lady Gaga amongst many others had no choice but to evacuate their homes. After leaving her Malibu residence, Gaga visited a Red Cross shelter at Pacific Palisades High School. She comforted those in the shelter who also had to leave their homes, including a 98 year old woman who she spoke and sang to. Gaga handed out gift cards, took photographs, and offered some words of advice. "I extend my love ... I know we do not know each other, but I love you. This is an emergency, but you are not alone." She also encouraged everyone to take advantage of mental health counsellors on the premises and for them to share stories and talk to each other to get through it. Watch below as she speaks to those at the shelter. Although it was feared destroyed, Lady Gaga's home was thankfully confirmed to be unscathed by the fire.
