And finally, the Biggest Disappointment of 2009: Michael Jackson’s Final Video – “This Is It” – Spike Lee supposedly directed this video (How do you direct a dead guy?) for Michael Jackson’s last song “This Is It.” It shows a timeline of Michael Jackson growing up in Gary, Indiana and turning into the King of Pop. The video lacks the spark and originality Michael Jackson was known for, I’m sorry to say. The This Is It DVD will be released on January 26, 2010 in case anyone cares.

Out comedian Mario Cantone, who gets gay-married in his recurring role as Anthony Marantino in the upcoming Sex and the City 2 movie, cracked up the ladies on The View Christmas Eve with his right-on impersonations of Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli singing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” The Italian-American humorist, who turned 50 this month but doesn’t look a day over 49, is not only a stand-up comedian but a successful writer and actor. Mario not only does guest appearances on The View, he regularly narrates campy reviews of awards shows on the program, much to our delight.

Born in Stoneham Massachesetts December 9, 1959, Mario Cantone is also a favorite guest of Opie and Anthony, a nationally syndicated radio show where his signature song “Getcha Balls Out” describes his personality to a T. You may recognize Mario’s distinctive voice on commercials as he currently narrates several popular advertisements, including Sunsilk and Hairapy.

Watch our videos of Lady Gaga, now the Best Selling Artist in the World, receiving a plaque for 8 million record CD sales within a year! As the enigmatic 23 year-old singer continues to blossom into the international superstar of the century, Lady Gaga is pulling in a plethora of rave reviews for her wild and crazy Monster Ball Tour concerts while harvesting nearly every year-end award on the pop planet!

Picture of Lady Gaga at her LA Monster Ball Concert Wednesday night being overwhelmed by the giant plaque showing she's sold over 8 million records around the world. 12-23-09 photo

A Los Angeles Times reviewer said it simply enough: “Lady Gaga has arrived.”

Picture of Lady Gaga getting hugged by her dancers after her manager surprised her at the L.A. Nokia Theater Monster Ball Tour Concert with a plaque for selling 8 million records worldwide. 12-23-09 photo

"A year ago this month, I was opening for Natasha Bedingfield and the New Kids on the Block in this very theater," Lady Gaga told her fans Monday night during the first of three sold-out performances at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

Picture of Lady Gaga at her Monster Ball Concert in L.A. holding hands with her dancers and breaking into tears at the news she's sold over 8 million records worldwide. 12-23-09 photo

Indeed, it was only one year ago when her debut album, The Fame, was released. As they say in Hollywood Land, the rest is herstory!

Check out this amazing picture of Lady Gaga as featured on the official GRAMMY "We're All Fans" website with a photo comprised entirely of fan videos, photos, and tweets! Go to the site to view the image, and make your own additions! Lady Gaga has been nominated FIVE times for the 2010 GRAMMY Awards, as follows: ALBUM OF THE YEAR: THE FAME; SONG OF THE YEAR: "POKER FACE"; RECORD OF THE YEAR: "POKER FACE"; BEST DANCE RECORDING: "POKER FACE"; and BEST ELECTRONIC/DANCE ALBUM: THE FAME. The 52nd annual Grammy Awards Show will air live on CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles Sunday, January 31, 2010. UPDATE! It was just confirmed that Lady Gaga will be performing, along with Beyonce and Taylor Swift!

And, it was just announced by the United World Chart that Lady Gaga's debut album The Fame was the world’s second best-selling album in 2009. It sold more than 5,800,000 million copies worldwide, second only to Susan Boyle.

One of several recent Lady Gaga photos pictures taken by gay photographer David LaChapelle. This one shows Kanye West holding the nude body of Lady Gaga. The series is included in the Book of Gaga, which is part of the Super Deluxe Fame Monster Album Package. Buy it here.

Readers of Bill Board Magazine voted Gaga’s first CD The Fame as the Best Album of 2009. She just topped Bill Board’s Hot Digital List with her latest single “Bad Romance.” Lady Gaga's first hit release "Poker Face" garnered the number one spot on United World’s Global Year-End Chart for singles, which means it was the best-selling song of 2009 in the world! Plus Gaga is also the only artist to have FIVE songs on the list!

Another of David LaChapelle's photos of Lady Gaga for her second album The Fame Monster's Deluxe Package. This one shows her in duplicate with cotton-candy hair, being liberated from wheel chairs. Check out the David LaChapelle Studio website.

Lady Gaga Is Last.fm 's Most Listened-to Artist Of 2009. Her first album, The Fame, was scrobbled for a combined total of 18,487,185 plays, exceeding the second-place finisher, The Killers, by more than six million scrobbles.

Third photo by David LaChapelle showing electricity flowing out of Lady Gaga's head, crotch, and wrists.

On December 13, 2009 "Bad Romance" went number one in England, scoring Lady Gaga her third number one hit on the UK singles chart! This made Lady Gaga the first female artist to have three number ones within a year in Great Britain!

Lady Gaga topped, or ranked high on almost all of the 2009 Billboard Year End Charts. Billboard.com said: “We've spent the year tallying album sales figures and reviewing Hot 100 song rankings. Now, at the end of 2009's road, look back at the 20 artists who traveled further and faster up the charts than all the others. These stars were the best performers on the Hot 100 and the Billboard 200 over the course of the chart year.”

Fifth picture by David LaChapelle of Lady Gaga and friends au naturel to be included in the Book of Gaga for the Super Deluxe The Fame Monster Album Package.

Bill Board continued: “Lady Gaga, the chart-topping hit-maker and headline-grabbing fashionista from New York became the first artist ever to send her first four singles to No. 1 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart. What's her secret? "A hit record writes itself," said the winner of the 2009 Billboard Rising Star award. "If you have to wait, maybe the song isn't there. Once you tap into the soul, the song begins to write itself. And I usually write the choruses first, because without a good chorus, who really gives a f*ck?"

Romance gone bad: Another David La Chapelle photo? Although it looks like it could be, it's actually the closing shot of Gaga with her deceased boyfriend in Lady Gaga's awesome "Bad Romance" video, which you can watch again at the base of this page, along with the rest of today's videos.

The most successful artists, songs and albums in the United States, based upon the Billboard magazine charts during the 2009 chart year are as follows (after the pic):

Lady Gaga was also just named by MTV as having the Most Fashion Forward Video of 2009 for "Bad Romance."

Closeup picture of Lady Gaga's golden Roman-era inspired bra taken during the San Francisco Monster Ball Concert. 12-14-09 photo

MTV.com had this to say about Gaga: “The year 2009 was a banner one for fashion-forward music videos. The last 12 months have been dominated by aggressive, progressive, unbelievably stylish divas, hipsters, rappers, glam rockers and rebels.”

“At the top of the list would have to be Lady Gaga and Rihanna,” MTV said, “Both have catapulted themselves into the upper atmosphere of pop culture stardom, bordering on iconic status. With their daring combos of hot and haute couture and brave filmmaking, they released a series of videos that combined catwalk-ready fashion with cinematic craftsmanship. Ri-Ri’s ‘Hard’ and Gaga’s ‘Paparazzi’ and ‘Bad Romance’ simply dazzled.”

IN TOUCH WEEKLY recently quoted Lady Gaga as saying this, “I was a bit insecure in high school. I used to get made fun of for being either too provocative or too eccentric, so I started to tone it down. I didn’t fit in, and I felt like a freak.” But once she started college at New York University, she said she began to show her true colors.

“I really let the real me out," Gaga admitted. "I’m an outspoken and extreme dresser. I am inspired by photography and art, but mostly by New York.” She defended her quirkiness and explained she does it all for her fans, who can relate to her feeling like an outsider. “This is really who I am, and it took a long time to be okay with that.”

Anyone who follows Lady Gaga on Facebook or Twitter may have been puzzled recently when this showed up on her pages: #Ladygaygay. A lot of readers speculated her accounts had been hacked, but the truth is she was simply reacting to a show of support by fans who were upset by recent stories about Rev. Fred Phelps from the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), the decidedly sick obsessed founder of the “God Hates Fags” movement. The little man has been threatening to picket Lady Gaga at the Fox Theatre in Missouri on January 7th because of her support for gay rights. Her Little Monsters tweeted #Ladygaygay so many thousands of times that Lady Gaga took notice and posted the tweet herself. Read more here: The #LadyGayGay Story.

Meanwhile, Gaga announced recently that she is joining up with Virgin Mobile to help homeless LGBT youth. "One of every five homeless in the community identified themselves as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered youth, making homophobia a top cause of domestic violence. And you all know that makes me very angry," Lady Gaga says in a video message to her fans you can watch below.

At the begining of December, Virgin Mobile, sponsor of Gaga's Monster Ball tour, announced that they would be extending its FREE I.P. volunteer program in conjunction with the North American trek.

Kid Cudi has been dropped from the Monster Ball Tour! Lady Gaga is a woman of her word and when she says she’s against violence she means it! Her record label, Interscope Records, confirmed that Kid Cudi is "no longer" with the tour. Apparently, a fan threw a wallet at Kid Cudi during his show at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver December 11th, so the rapper hopped off the stage and punched the guy in the face, the whole incident having been caught on video, as shown below:

Watch this video of Lady Gaga reacting to being named MTV News' Woman of The Year: "It means everything," Gaga said. "I'm not only flattered but really excited. It makes me want to work harder, make better videos and better shows and better music all the time. I really appreciate all the love MTV has shown me, and the support. My performance at the VMAs, for me, was a turning point artistically, and I appreciated that you guys supported me so much. I always dreamed about being a performer on the MTV Awards. ... More importantly, I wanted to be a performer, and I wanted my VMA performance to be my groundbreaking, life-changing performance," she said.

Check out this Extended Play MTV Lady Gaga Interview by James Montgomery, Part 1, from 12-19-09 at the SE San Diego Hotel. Among other things she says, “First and foremost, my favorite artists of 2009 were my fans. My fans were my favorites because every song I did, they remade on their own, and every photograph that I took, they took their own version of it. And they remade my music videos, they designed clothes for me. They wrote poetry and made films and designed all sort of amazing paintings . . . My fans are f***ing really smart. But I really love Alphabeat, they’re great and they’re going to come out on tour with me next year in the UK and Europe.”
