Lady Gaga ‘The Edge Of Glory’ Video

Lady GaGa 'The Edge Of Glory'

Lady Gaga is out with the music video to her new single ‘The Edge Of Glory’. The song is the third single from the New York City pop singer’s latest album ‘Born This Way’, out now on Interscope Records. Lady Gaga and the Haus of Gaga co-directed the video, which was shot last month.

“Sorry to be a downer. But my grandpa died about five months ago, and my dad and I were going to say goodbye to him at the hospital, and I got out a big thing of agave tequila and my dad sat next to me at the piano and we started to doing shots back and forth, and I wrote ‘Edge of Glory’ on the piano and my dad and I cried,” Gaga said about the 14th track on ‘Born This Way’. “The song’s about your last moment on Earth, the moment of truth, the edge of glory is that moment right before you leave the Earth. So that song can be played on the piano, but it’s actually set to this giant, huge, techno rock, Springsteen-esque dance beat. I actually had Clarence Clemons from the E Street Band come in and play saxophone on it. It’s fu**ing beautiful.”

Kerli On Lady Gaga Comparison Frustrations

singer Kerli

Kerli spoke with the Michigan weekly Between The Lines about whether she feels any resentment towards Lady Gaga, who the Estonian artist is often compared to even though she began her career a few years before Gaga. “No. It’s fine,” the 24-year-old said. “I just feel like it’s hard for every creative female artist out there because you get compared to her so much. But in a way, I’m actually really happy that there is a big artist out there who’s pushing the envelope. That’s good for other creative females. I’ve always done my thing and would like to get credit for it as well.”

Justin Timberlake Hosts ‘SNL’ Season Finale With Musical Guest Lady Gaga (Video)

Justin Timberlake was the host of ‘Saturday Night Live’ season finale over the weekend, with musical guest Lady Gaga. Timberlake started off with a monologue by singing his promise not to do any singing for the night. Both artists then starred in the Digital Short ‘3-Way (The Golden Rule)’ with Andy Samberg, where the song centered around the rule that says when there’s two guys and only one girl, “it’s not gay, when it’s in a three-way.” The former *NSYNC star then made a cameo in Herb Welch’s on the scene report. JT then helped entertain when a carnival ride broke down as a flirtatious robot. In a celebrity edition episode of ‘What’s That Name?’, Timberlake and Gaga had to name various people to win money for their charities, with Justin having trouble with a former bandmate. Justin continued the game show themed skits with ‘Secret Word’. Joining former ‘SNL’ cast member Jimmy Fallon, Justin reprised his role in ‘The Barry Gibb Talk Show’. In a web only skit, Timberlake spoofed his own foray into acting by playing Mozart plotting a similar move.

Lady Gaga’s musical performances included ‘Judas’ and ‘Born This Way’. Watch the skits via NBC.com below (Lady Gaga’s performances have since been removed).
