News: Lady Gaga x Kendrick Lamar
Pop pseud and Dre protege collaborate on new single, Wale sulks in the corner
LADY Gaga has announced a collaboration with Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar. The pair have recorded a song together called ‘PARTYNAUSEOUS’, which will appear on Lamar’s upcoming album good Kid, m.A.A.d city, due for release on October 2.
Gaga has worked with rappers before, guesting on Wale’s ‘Chillin” back in 2009. Don’t ask Wale about it, though, because he’ll only get upset. According to Fader, Wale was sad the two didn’t keep in touch after their collaboration, citing one incident in which “she [Gaga] walked right past” him at an awards ceremony. She probably just didn’t see you, Wale!
“Not that I thought I’d be taking fucking shots of Ciroc with Lady Gaga on a Friday night watching SVU,” he goes on to add, in the tone of man who has been leaving answer-phone messages every hour.
Perhaps we shouldn’t be judging Gaga too harshly. She’s had a “challenging year”, according to a letter published to her social networking site, Little Monsters. In the moaning missive, Gaga cites “incessant dragging of the most important single of my career in dead-beaten-horse-mud” as one of the reasons for her bum 12 months.
