We were overjoyed this week when one of our theories about American Horror Story season five turned out to be true: the next season will be American Horror Story: Hotel. Lady Gaga is starring, and she released the news with a really cool teaser announcing the title. We're pretty sure she's going to kill it on the show, and we even have some ideas about what might happen on this season, but at least one huge question remains: where will it be set? We did some sleuthing and found some ideal locations for Hotel. Check them out ahead, if you dare. »
Susan Strack just called to say Stevie Wonder owes her $7 million in unpaid royalties. Her late husband Johanan Vigoda worked as the legendary singer-songwriter’s lawyer from 1971 until he his 2011 death and, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday, Wonder still owes his estate money. See Video: Stevie Wonder Tribute: 5 Awesome Moments From Beyonce to Lady Gaga She claimed Wonder, who has sold over 100 million records and won 22 Grammys throughout his career, had agreed on multiple occasions to pay Vigoda 6 percent of all of his royalties in perpetuity. When Vigoda died, she claimed her husband bequeathed those rights to her. Strack »

Anyone who has ever watched the Godzilla films knows that he isn’t a monster at all. More of a protector really. So this hotel room opening in Tokyo, really is quite soothing to know you have someone looking over you. Not scary at all, honestly.
For just $334 a night on weekdays, you can have Godzilla’s hand looming over you as you sleep and a statue of the kaiju peacefully guarding your doorway. You can even get a room that looks directly out at a Godzilla head mounted on the roof of the hotel.
Ah the Japanese; so like us.
We all know Michael Keaton should’ve won an Oscar last Sunday. In fact, he probably thought so too. Take a look at this Vine, in which it kind of looks like he’s putting a piece of paper, maybe an acceptance speech back into his jacket pocket right »

The night wasn't supposed to be about Captain Von Trapp. That's why Christopher Plummer, who played the man of Maria's dreams in The Sound of Music, skipped the 50th anniversary tribute to the 1965 Best Picture musical on Oscar night last Sunday. "I couldn't be there for personal reasons, and secondly I didn't want to," Plummer, 85, tells People exclusively. "It was really a tribute to Julie. It's her movie. It's a terrible phrase we have in England but if I had appeared there I would have looked like a spare prick at a wedding. That's the most perfect description of how I would have looked. »

2015, the year Madonna was set to make her big comeback with a new look and a new album. Her Brit Awards performance had millions tuning in to watch her close the show. As she ascended the stairs in her huge cape, she got caught in a tangle with her dancers costume and dragged down three flights of stairs, her live microphone sending an echoing thud around the arena and the world watched as the Queen of Pop dragged herself off the floor and just got the hell on with it.
This is Madonna, the mind behind ‘that bra’ and ‘those videos’, there is little else she can do publicly that will cause shock because from her head to her toe we have seen everything there is to see. She is the artist with the most banned videos on MTV, causing controversy with hits like Justify My Love, »

Excuse us if we go out on a limb here, but something tells us the collective brain trust at The Academy is glad this awards season has mercifully come to an end. After an incredibly diverse 86th Academy Awards ceremony, where "12 Years a Slave" took Best Picture, a Mexican filmmaker won Best Director, Lupita Nyong'o earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar and John Ridley won Best Adapted Screenplay, the Oscars appeared to take a step back in 2015. It wasn't just that "Selma" was snubbed in a number of major categories. The #OscarsSoWhite hashtag became a historical footnote that will haunt the Academy for years (and, trust, it will be back again if the public wills it). But it had more to do with all white nominees in the acting categories than just "Selma" itself. This also brought to light that it was yet another year without a female nominee in the Best Director category, »

Lupita Nyong'o has reportedly had her Oscars dress stolen.

According to TMZ, the dress was stolen at some point on Tuesday from Nyong'o's room at The London hotel in West Hollywood.
It was also recently reported that the Oscar-winning 31-year-old is in talks to star in Disney's Queen of Katwe alongside David Oyelowo.
John Legend and Common's Oscar-winning song "Glory" from the film Selma garnered 28,000 downloads to notch its best sales week to date. The spike anchored a massive 184 percent sales gain for all music featured on the 87th Academy Awards for the week ending the day of the awards (February 22nd), according to The Hollywood Reporter. These already impressive numbers are expected to rise even more in the first post-Oscars sales week ending March 1st.
While "Glory" reaped the largest rewards, its fellow nominees for Best Original Song — "I'm Not Gonna »
When we heard yesterday's big news about Lady Gaga starring in next season's American Horror Story — and it being deemed American Horror Story: Hotel — we couldn't help but start imagining what this Gaga Inn might look like.

Which Gagas would be your bloodcurdling bellhops, and which would serve as your creepy concierge? So we took all the scariest Gagas we could find and put them in the quirkiest hotel we could think of. Get ready to book your stay in the Grand Gagapest Hotel. Which Gaga will you encounter? »

It couldn’t have come at a better time, in terms of audience good will, seeing as Lady Gaga won over a whole lot of film and TV fans with her performance at the 87th Academy Awards on Sunday night. Her Sin City: A Dame To Kill For appearance helped her geek credibility levels, too.
Little else is known of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s next season of American Horror Story, but we can assume that the levels of hotel-themed horror will be a little worse than a lack of fried bread on the breakfast menu.
As is expected from the secretive show, »
Series co-creator Ryan Murphy is a huge fan of the controversial artist, whose infamous meat-based dress alone earmarked her for such a role. Details of the part are yet to be revealed, but Gaga herself announced her involvement in a typically unusual Tweet-fuelled video:
Make your reservation now. #GagaAHSHotel https://t.co/o9ixi5TaFy
— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) February 25, 2015
The upcoming run is subtitled Hotel and follows the show’s tradition of launching a different storyline each time featuring the same actors. However, Murphy has disclosed the narratives are interconnected – apparently the events of the new run were hinted at in Season Four, so presumably these tales of terror will be drawn together at some point.
Though she’s appeared in movies such as Sin City 2, »

Bush captioned the pic, "#wcw @LadyGaga, naturally. She Slayed the #Oscars and now she's snuggled up with the #ChicagoFam celebrating love. "The Oscars were amazing, but this!? This is everything." Oh #TaylorKinney you're a lucky man!! #love #congrats."
Gaga lucked out as well, getting a half-million dollar, heart-shaped diamond engagement ring. The couple have been dating since 2011, after Kinney starred in Gaga’s music video for her single "You and I."

Let's hear it for the power of love! Just a few short days after stealing the 2015 Oscars with her tribute to the Sound of Music, Lady Gaga headed to Chicago to meet up with fiancé Taylor Kinney. While visiting the set of Chicago Fire, the "Just Dance" crooner celebrated her new relationship status with his co-stars including Sophia Bush. "#wcw @LadyGaga, naturally. She Slayed the #Oscars and now she's snuggled up with the #ChicagoFam celebrating love," Bush captioned before quoting the singer. "'The Oscars were amazing, but this!? This is everything.'" She added, "Oh #TaylorKinney you're a lucky man!! #Love #Congrats" Gaga »
If you've ever wondered what Mary Poppins sounds like when she sings death metal, now is your chance to hear it.
YouTube user Andy Rehfeldt made the Disney classic animated tune "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" into a death metal song by synching the voices of Julie Andrews (Mary Poppins) and Dick Van Dyke (Bert) with vocals from artists Sera Hatchett and Thomas Hinds.

The beautiful and upbeat song about something to say when you have nothing to say now sounds a lot angrier and raspier.
For comparison's sake, let's revisit the original!

While the death metal version may better fit the lyrics, "Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious," this viral video is getting a lot of attention with many YouTube users finding it incredibly funny."This is my jam" and "One to bring smiles" are just a »
Madonna is clearly a swiftie!
The 56-year-old songstress praised Taylor Swift again – this time in the newest issue of Rolling Stone.
“She has an opinion, and she's going against the norm," Madonna told the mag. "So in that respect, she is similar to me, yeah. And also, people just want to give her a hard time all the time because they think she's a goody-two-shoes, so of course I want to embrace her."
Taylor! Are you comprehending this?! Madonna wants to embrace you, girl!
This isn't the first time Madonna has paid the “Style” singer a compliment. The pop icon dubbed T-Swift a “pop princess” during an interview with Australia's Network Nine's Today last month.
"It's good to have princesses [of pop]. It means there's lots of pretty dresses around. I like Taylor Swift. I think she writes some really catchy pop songs. I can't get »
Lady Gaga is starring on season five of American Horror Story, which we now know is titled Hotel. We have a good idea of what we might see, but we have no idea who - or what? - Gaga is playing. I can understand why her casting would be a hugely polarizing choice, but if you're not fully on the #GagaAHSHotel train, it's time. Here are the top five reasons Gaga is going to absolutely kill this acting gig. Source: Getty / Christopher Polk »
"I don't think she wants my crown," Madonna said Gaga. "We live in a world where people like to pit women against each other. And this is why I love the idea of embracing other females who are doing what I'm doing."

It was a shockingly toned-down Gaga who took the stage at this weekend’s Academy Awards, but fear not, little monsters. The pop singer hasn’t lost touch with her weird side. Lady Gaga is set to star in the new season of FX’s American Horror Story, subtitled Hotel. Watch the Lady Gaga American Horror Story announcement after the jump. […]

Lady Gaga posted a short teaser on her Twitter account, which shows her taking off a black, glittery mask in the same vein as one of the many lavish costumes she's worn in the past. In the teaser, Lady Gaga also revealed the fifth season of "American Horror Story" will be called "Hotel." The previous seasons have all been subtitled after where the season takes place, including "Murder House," "Asylum," "Coven" and last season's highly successful "Freak Show." "Make your reservation now," she posted on Twitter. While there haven't been any other details about the new season, one can't help but make parallels to "Psycho" when thinking about horror and hotels. The teaser doesn't reveal any clues, but Lady Gaga as a hotel murderer sounds pretty great. Either way, it'll be interesting to Lady Gaga as she continues to explore acting, having appeared briefly in "Machete Kills" and "Sin City:. »
