Monday night Lady Gaga will perform her new hit “Bad Romance” on the CW’s Gossip Girl in an episode entitled “Last Days of the Disco Stick.” Wearing a bright red sequined gown with a 35-foot long chiffon train, Lady Gaga will sing the stunning song backed up by three buff dancers. “She was amazing,” declared Stephanie Savage to Rolling Stone. “She was willing to stay on set and perform silently in the background of all of our shots so that she could stay a part of the scene and be integrated into the action.” This version of “Bad Romance” contains some Gossip Girl-specific lyrics, but Savage wouldn’t reveal further details. She wants you to tune in November 16th and see for yourself.
Lady Gaga filmed the cameo in mid-October at New York’s Angel Orensanz, a downtown synagogue-turned-performance space, and Savage estimates the star was there for at least a half-day of production with Penn Badgley (Dan Humphrey), Hilary Duff (Olivia Burke), Vanessa Abrams (Jessica Szhor), and aspiring pop star Leighton Meester (Blair Waldorf), even though her role consists of only one scene.

Savage said that the show’s staffers have always liked Lady Gaga, noting they used “Paparazzi” on the Season Two premiere, taped in the summer of 2008.

Lady Gaga announced yesterday (11-13-09) that she will release her next album, The Fame Monster, in three different versions—a standard version of the new 8-song album; a deluxe version which includes both The Fame Monster and her massively successful debut album The Fame; and a collector’s edition super-deluxe art book version, which includes both albums, fanzines, 3-D glasses, paper dolls, a puzzle, pictorials, a lock of Lady Gaga’s hair and other surprises. (Note: the 8-song album can now be preordered for only $7.99 from the Gaga store [Click on "Preorder Lady Gaga Fame Monster" and scroll down.] This is the half-price album promised by Lady Gaga during her German interview with Wetten Dass on November 8, 2009.)
Lady Gaga just released this visual highlighting how The Fame Monster will be available in three different forms. See above paragraph for details.
Says Lady Gaga, “In the midst of my creative journey composing The Fame Monster, there came an exciting revelation that this was in fact my sophomore album. I would not add, nor take away any songs from this LP, it is a complete conceptual and musical body of work that can stand on its own two feet. It doesn't need The Fame."

"We may have an economy, but MUSIC HAS NO ECONOMY,” Lady Gaga continued. “I will release four or more singles from The Fame Monster, explore the world with "The Monster Ball Tour," and most importantly I insist on honoring my fans with an affordable new album, a CD that is as loyal to them, as they have been me."

"For those who do not have my debut album,” she said. “There are a series of collectible double-disc editions that include both albums and artwork conceived by the Haus of Gaga in collaboration with our mentor Hedi Slimane. Hear the music, see the show, live and love yourself."

Lady Gaga fans now have a chance to be a part of "The Monster Ball!" In a unique step, Pop Queen Lady Gaga, pioneering image-maker Nick Knight and fashion filmmaker Ruth Hogben launch a one-off collaborative project, inviting the singer's fans to submit their own video imagery for inclusion in her 2009-2010 World Tour “The Monster Ball.”

The inspiration is sharp, simple and brutal: the Apocalypse, symbolic of both destruction and rebirth. Lady Gaga, Nick Knight and Ruth Hobgen will select video imagery from the submissions, and the videos will then be spliced together and reinvented as exclusive imagery, played alongside Lady Gaga's spectacular live performances across the globe.
