Lady Gaga's Former Personal Assistant to Write a Tell-All Book?

Lady Gaga's former "hood rat" assistant can now add another title to her resume: author. Jennifer O'Neil, the ex-assistant who sued Gaga, claiming she was owed $393,000 for 7,168 hours of overtime, is writing a tell-all book, Fame Monster, to be published by Simon & Schuster imprint Atria Books, according to The New York Post's Page Six.  The deal reportedly could be worth up to $1 million, though there's no firm publishing date and the manuscript has not been turned in. O'Neil, who worked for Mama Monster on the 2009-2011 Monster's Ball tour, filed her complaint in 2011, claiming she…

Zayn Malik Not Secretly Married, Says Rep

One Direction fans, you can all calm down: Zayn Malik did not secretly get married. The hysteria started when Zayn posted a photo on Instagram of him wearing what appears to be a wedding band on his ring finger. The singer made his account public for the first time on Tuesday, and his very first image sent his followers into a panic that he had married his girlfriend, Perrie Edwards, without letting them know first. A spokesman denied that the jewelry in question was a wedding band, and was in fact his engagement ring, according to The Daily Mail. Zayn…

Go Behind the Scenes of Train's "Angel in Blue Jeans" Video

In Train's latest video, for the single "Angel in Blue Jeans," singer  Pat Monahan plays the bad guy to actor Danny Trejo's hero.  It's a role reversal for Trejo, who is known for playing villains in action films, and that is exactly what Monahan thought was so cool about the clip. "This song to me and the video, they sound and look like a Quentin Tarantino vibe," Pat tells Entertainment Tonight. "I'm a bad guy. I think my face is really good at being a bad guy and it's great 'cause Danny, who usually is a bad guy, ends up…

"Weird Al" Yankovic Gets "Handy" in Iggy Azalea Parody

"Weird Al" Yankovic's eight day marathon of videos continued today with the release of his newest song parody: "Handy," a take-off on Iggy Azalea's "Fancy." In a spoof straight out of Home Improvement, Weird Al straps on a denim vest and raps: "First things first, I'm a craftsman (craftsman), Remodeling is my only passion (it's my passion)," before he delivers the chorus: "I'm so handy, you already know/I'll fix your plumbing when your toilets overflow." His nod to Jay Z's "99 Problems" is a winner as well: "I got 99 problems but a switch ain't one." He also brags about…

Iggy Azalea Was Upset After Nicki Minaj’s BET Awards Speech

Looks like Nicki Minaj's shady acceptance speech at the 2014 BET Awards got the best of Iggy Azalea. The Australian rapper's boyfriend, NBA player Nick Young, revealed that he had to lift her spirits after indirectly being called out for not writing her own raps. "I had to deal with the the aftermath of all that," the Los Angeles Laker player told the New York Daily News during the ESPYS. "When she came home and was going through her phones, hearing everybody talking trash about her. I had to be there for her." Although Nicki later denied that she was talking…

OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder on Difference Between Writing Band's Hits & Hits for Others

Ryan Tedder is rarely off the Billboard charts:  if he's not scoring hits with OneRepublic, he's writing singles for other artists. For example, he co-wrote Maroon 5's latest top 10, "Maps."   But Ryan says writing songs for his band and writing them for other artists is very different, because it all comes down to who actually performs those songs. Speaking to the British magazine FAULT, Ryan says, "OneRepublic songs are a lot harder for me. I compare it to theater. A OneRepublic album is a play written, directed, produced, performed by us, by me." He adds, "When it’s for…

MAGIC! Frontman "Couldn't Stand" #1 Hit "Rude" at First: "It Was *Too* Catchy"

After weeks in the top 10, "Rude" by the Canadian band MAGIC! has finally hit #1, deposing Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" after seven weeks.  Ironically, after the band's frontman came up with the song's instantly-memorable chorus, he disliked it so much that he had no interest in writing the rest of the tune. MAGIC! singer Nasri tells ABC News Radio that it was the band's guitarist Mark Pelli who pushed him to complete "Rude."  "He was just fighting for it and I was just like, 'I just don't like it,'" Nasri recalls. "I think it was too catchy.  I was just…
