franklyHANK IS Lady Gaga…ok, just for Halloween

This is yours truly on Chicago’s Windy City LIVE today for our special Halloween broadcast.  It took 1 1/2 hours in hair and make-up to pull off this look.  Whew!  Special thanks to make-up artist Keith Ward who made it all happen!

Billboard’s Top Music Money Makers of 2012

So is your favorite on the list? Billboard magazine is releasing its list of the biggest music money makers in 2012.  Some are expected, others are a surprise (especially the amount of money #1 pulls in).  I think I’m goin’ country, ya’ll.  Take a look…

#10 – ADELE, $13,081,909

Forget “Rolling In The Deep,” this British beauty is rolling in the dough.  And get this, she didn’t even get to complete her tour because of her throat issues and she still pulled in mega bucks!  Love me some, Adele.

#9 – JASON ALDEAN, $13,409,011

Ok, so can anyone tell me who Jason Aldean is?  Yeah, I didn’t know either.  Some country dude, but apparently someone knows him b/c he earned almost as much as Adele and everyone knows her.

#8 – CELINE DION, $14,261,515

Celine’s Vegas show is helping bring in the bug bucks… Her 2007 album sold more than 300,000 copies in 2011, plus nearly a million downloads of her music.

#7 – BON JOVI, $15,835,856

Bon Jovi is iconic.  No wonder they are in the Top 10. They have been merchandising like crazy with videos, downloads and more, all stemming from last year’s tour, “The Circle.”

Best of SNL: Justin Timberlake/Andy Samberg Make It An SNL “3-Way”

Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg did not disappoint last night on Saturday Night Live.  The duo did a Digital Short tri-quel to their “D*ck In A Box” and “Motherlover” videos called “3-Way (The Golden Rule)” featuring cameos by Patricia Clarkson and Susan Sarandon and a huge role by Lady Gaga, last night’s musical guest.   Hilarious…

Best Of SNL: Justin Timberlake Sings His Refusal to Sing

Justin Timberlake didn’t waste any time when he took to the stage for SNL’s season finale Saturday night.  He’s used to being host and musical guest, but last night Lady Gaga was his musical act.  So Timberlake sings about refusing to sing on the show.  Gotta love, JT!

Best of SNL: Timberlake and Gaga Do A Game Show

Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga teamed up to do a “game show” when he hosted the season finale of SNL.  The premise is simple… just tell me “What’s My Name?”  Well, simple for Gaga.  Not for JT.   Missed the show?  You can see more SNL clips HERE.

SEE IT! Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” Video

Check out Gaga in her new video for “Born This Way.”  Skip the nonsense and jump to 2:40 when the music starts.  Gaga is probably the most normal looking in {some of} this video.  No doubt, she’s a beautiful woman and has an amazing body.  Still not a huge fan of the song, but that’s me!

Lady Gaga = Lady Loco

Don’t get me wrong, I love the Gaga as much as everyone else, but if ANYONE, and I mean ANYONE else did the stuff she does, they would be institutionalized.  The crazy outfits, the bizarre dances, the strange entrances.  Take “the egg” at the Grammys.  The woman enters the building inside an egg.  THEN she goes on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show and claims to have spent 72 hours INSIDE the egg.  She said it was very meditative.  I say it’s nuts.  Do you really believe she sat in that egg for 3 days.  Come on!!!

Gaga, why do you have to do all of this?  You, unlike many pop stars today, can actually sing.  You have a great voice.  You don’t need all of the theatrics, the antics.  Just sing… then again, if you did, I probably wouldn’t be writing about you right now, would I?  I still love you Gaga, even if you were “Born This Way.”   EXPRESS YOURSELF!!!

Piers Morgan: Madonna Banned; Madonna: Piers Who?

Soon to be Larry King replacement, Piers Morgan, says pop icon Madonna is banned from his CNN show because she is not “relevant and current” enough.
Morgan tells UK media that “She is too vegan for TV… We have Lady Gaga now so Madonna is banned from my show.”

Madonna’s rep says, “Madonna doesn’t know who Piers Morgan is, but she’s a big fan of Lady Gaga.”

Someone needs to remind Mr. Morgan that Madonna was not only named one of Time Magazine’s 25 Most Powerful Women of the Last Century, but she also had the top grossing tours for a solo artist for 2008-2009.  I would say that’s pretty relevant.
