Hot. Literally. Can you imagine strolling through NYC wearing leather head to toe? It was almost 90 yesterday! In other Lady Gaga news, looks like the singer got called out in a major way by Billboard for using “questionable practices” to get her new song on the top of the charts!
Last week, Mother Monster held a contest which incentivized buying multiple copies of “Applause.” The 27-year-old singer told her Twitter followers that the two fans with the most “purchase/gift screenshots, radio requests, ‘Applause’ selfies/video” will fly internationally to meet Gaga and attend the iTunes Festival in London and watch her performance.
Gaga continued to push her fans to get “Applause” to the top of the charts last night by tweeting out a link to watch the music video to the track. While the tweet has since been deleted, Gaga originally publicized a link which allowed users to watch the video 150 times in a row.
Billboard’s Bill Werde took issue with the seemingly cheap tactic to get video views, taking to Twitter to speak out against the practice. “I just hate to see anyone try to game the charts, be it fans or artists,” he wrote. “It’s not in the spirit of what we do, celebrating success.”
What do you think – was Gaga being shady? Either way – Katy Perry’s new song beat out Gaga’s in the charts.

Lady Gaga has debuted the music video for her new single, “Applause.” The singer dropped by “Good Morning America” this morning and dropped the world premiere.
I have to say something nice now…. I have been very negative about her new song, “Applause,” but after watching the music video, I don’t necessarily hate it anymore. It’s a pretty catchy video, if you ask me.
In the video, Gaga, 27, appears in very little clothing, and shows off her much-smaller figure.
The video is filmed mostly in black and white – with splashes of color.
On “Good Morning America,” Gaga even made a live appearance to introduce the video. The singer wore a tiny white dress, sporting a new haircut and minimal makeup.
“My kind of music that I make is the kind that you look at,” Gaga said, explaining that she wanted to release the video and song on the same day, but due to hackers leaking the song early last weekend her plan was derailed.
The singer revealed she will be opening the MTV Video Music Awards with a performance of her new single Aug. 25 in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Here are new pictures of Gaga leaving the Chateau Marmont over the weekend. LOTS more pictures PLUS THE MUSIC VIDEO after the jump!

Earlier today I showed you 2 of Lady Gaga’s 4 V Magazine covers. Now more pictures are being released, and let’s just say….she’s much-less clothed in these ones.
Gaga has reportedly lost 30 pounds since undergoing hip surgery earlier this year, and you can definitely tell! In several pictures, her rib bones are sticking out, and she shows off a much-skinnier frame than previous pictures.
In some of the pictures, Gaga is wearing nothing. In some, she’s wearing plastic wrap.
Ahead of the November release of her new album ARTPOP, the Pokerface singer stripped down for the array of images, taken by photographers Inez van Lambsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
In another shot, Gaga is seen with black muck on her face and her bust.
The magazine features Gaga on four different covers, with each look custom-designed by world-renowned design houses, Balenciaga, Armani, Saint Laurent and Versace.
To go with the four covers, there are four different inside spreads and four different interviews by artist Marina Abramovic.
According to the magazine, ‘Gaga considers each cover an extension of herself, representing her at different stages of her life.’
