Lady Gaga nude in online video; Daft Punk may not have quit show; LeAnn Rimes show a go
-- Lady Gaga appears completely nude in a video of her practicing the Abramovic Method, based on exercises by performance artist Marina Abramovic. The video was made for a Kickstarter campaign for the Marina Abramovic Institute, and is supposed to heighten awareness. It seems peculiar she's naked, unless it's to heighten awareness she's a woman after the old rumor she's really a man gained traction following a court sealing legal documents this week to hide some undisclosed secret. We're not going to show you a naked Gaga on The Juice*, but you can always check out the Vimeo page here.
-- Stephen Colbert's epic takedown of Daft Punk and MTV on Tuesday's The Colbert Report with a performance of the French duo's Get Lucky may all have been planned from the very beginning. Billboard says MTV president Van Toffler may have been in on it and Robin Thicke's stand-in performance of Blurred Lines was actually recorded on July 31. For what it's worth, Colbert denied this conspiracy theory, also advanced by Pitchfork, but either way, it looks like the audience is the one who ended up being Daft Punk'd.
-- That reality show starring LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian is getting the greenlight after VH1 ordered six episodes, The Hollywood Reporter says. LeAnn & Eddie is being made by Gurney Productions, the same place behind Duck Dynasty, so this is sure to inexplicably become a hit.
