Lady Gaga took to her Instagram to announce the postponement of her upcoming album, Chromatica. The LP was slated for release on April 10th.

“I wanted to tell you, that after a lot of deliberation, I’ve made the incredibly tough decision to postpone the release of Chromatica,” she wrote. “I will announce a new 2020 release date soon. This is such a hectic and scary time for all of us,” she continued, “and while I believe art is one of the strongest things we have to provide joy and healing to each other during times like this, it just doesn’t feel right for me to release this album with all that going on during this global pandemic.”

The singer also addressed the postponement of her Las Vegas residency, with MGM Resorts postponing all shows through May 10th. Three shows on May 13th, 15th and 16th are still for sale. “I’m hopeful that my other Vegas shows in May will continue, and we’ll update you as soon as we have any new information,” she wrote. “I also definitely plan to see you on the road for my Chromatica Ball tour this summer! Chromatica is still very much on the way and I can’t wait.”

“I had so many fun things planned for us to celebrate together,” she added. “I had a secret Coachella set lined up, and a lot of other fun surprises, some of which I’m still planning to share with all of you very soon! I hope you can see that when the album does come out, I want us to be able to dance together, sweat together, hug and kiss each other, and make the most bombastic celebration of all time.”

Chromatica is Gaga’s sixth LP. She recently released the single “Stupid Love.” “I live on Chromatica,” she told Zane Lowe of the record. “I found Earth. I deleted it. Earth is canceled. Chromatica is a frame of mind.”

Kim Kardashian Accuses Taylor Swift of ‘Lying’ About Kanye Call & Her Rep Fires Back

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West attending the Vanity Fair Oscar Party held at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles.

The years-old Kanye WestTaylor Swift rift just detonated with family members and reps taking sides and sparring on social media

In recent days, a new video clip of a four-year-old conversation between pair about Kanye’s song “Famous” hit the web. The leaked 25-minute phone call seemed to support the pop superstar’s claims all along, that she was never asked about being called a «b—-» in Ye’s song.

Now, West’s wife Kim Kardashian has stepped into the fray. The reality TV posted a batch of tweets overnight in which she defends her husband and repeatedly calls the “Bad Blood” singer a liar.

Tagging Swift’s handle, Kardashian says the singer has “chosen to reignite an old exchange – that at this point in time feels very self-serving given the suffering millions of real victims are facing right now.»

Getting into the swing of things, Kardashian continues: “I didn’t feel the need to comment a few days ago, and I’m actually really embarrassed and mortified to be doing it right now, but because she continues to speak on it, I feel I’m left without a choice but to respond because she is actually lying.»

And in another: «To be clear, the only issue I ever had around the situation was that Taylor lied through her publicist who stated that ‘Kanye never called to ask for permission…’ They clearly spoke so I let you all see that. Nobody ever denied the word ‘bitch’ was used without her permission.”

At the time when they spoke the song had not been fully written yet, but as everyone can see in the video, she manipulated the truth of their actual conversation in her statement when her team said she

“declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message.”

The lie was never about the word bitch, It was always whether there was a call or not and the tone of the conversation.

I never edited the footage (another lie) – I only posted a few clips on Snapchat to make my point and the full video that recently leaked doesn’t change the narrative.

To add, Kanye as an artist has every right to document his musical journey and process, just like she recently did through her documentary.

Kanye has documented the making of all of his albums for his personal archive, however has never released any of it for public consumption & the call between the two of them would have remained private or would have gone in the trash had she not lied & forced me to defend him.

Swift’s PR Tree Paine entered the battle with a tweet of her own. “I’m Taylor’s publicist and this is my UNEDITED original statement. Btw, when you take parts out, that’s editing,” she writes. Paine signs off with a backhander, “P.S. who did you guys piss off to leak that video?” complete with three laughing emojis.

The “unedited” message reads, “Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that bitch famous.’»

Taylor and Kanye’s beef dates back to the noughts, and to the night when Kanye West interrupted Swift’s victory speech at the 2009 MTV VMAs when she snagged the best female video trophy. The rapper’s behavior at the time prompted the-then president Barack Obama to chime in, calling Kanye a “jackass.”
