In November, Lady Gaga celebrated the release of her new album Artpop with a private event in New York City she called "ArtRave." Gaga is now taking that concept on the road next year, with "ArtRave: The Artpop Ball" tour. She'll kick things off on May 4th in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, following her residency at the Roseland Ballroom in New York. The trek will  see her visiting several cities where she canceled tour dates earlier this year in order to undergo hip surgery as well as playing new cities. Tickets for the tour will go on sale beginning December 9th, though Gaga is holding a presale today, beginning at 2 p.m. EST, on LittleMonsters.com.

Since she released Artpop last month, Lady Gaga has kept busy, appearing at awards shows and filming holiday specials with the Muppets. Despite being everywhere, Artpop dropped from its debut Number One position to Number Eight after one week. Still, the interest for all things Gaga isn't waning just yet: News came out yesterday that a Japanese company has created prototypes of a life-size Lady Gaga doll that plays music and messages when someone puts his or her head to its chest.

Song Stories

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
