MTV VMA News Bits: Lady Gaga Announces Album Title 'Born This Way'

Whenever Lady Gaga does anything, it's an event. At the MTV Video Music Awards last night (Sept. 12), Gaga snatched up the biggest trophy of the night for Video of the Year thanks to her maneater visuals for “Bad Romance.” During her emo acceptance speech, the popstress also let loose the title of her next album—Born This Way

"I promised that if I won this, I would announce the name of my new album. It's called Born This Way,” said Gaga, who then belted some lyrics from what we assume is the title track off the album.

Not much is known about the album, but Akon spilled some beans to VIBE back in April: “All I’m doing at the end of the day is listening to the tracks Gaga has written and approving them for her album. She has producers that she works with outside of myself and they are coming up with some incredible records. But the beauty of it is she knows exactly what she wants. So it just makes it easier for me.”



    Kanye West Debuts New Single ‘Runaway’ With Pusha T

    Recap: Taylor Swift did a song about Kanye, and Kanye West did a song about doucebags and assholes. 

    He definitely put on a show in what was many people's highlight of the night. To cap the show, the Taylor Swift apologee hit the stage decked in all red and armed with an MPC to debut his Pusha T-assisted “Runaway,” off his upcoming album that we think is titled Dark Twisted Fantasy. Are you feeling the song?

    And in case you’re wondering, Pusha is officially part of the G.O.O.D Music gang. He told MTV News, "I'm definitely signed with G.O.O.D. Music. I'm definitely doing my solo project through G.O.O.D. Music. The Clipse is definitely coming with a new Clipse project. We're definitely coming with the Re-Up Game project. The family is still here, man. It's just all about G.O.O.D. Music, straight up."

    Did Kanye redeem himself or did he even have to?

    Murderer Of Morgan Freeman's Granddaughter Sentenced To 20 Years

    Morgan Freeman's step-granddaughter, E'Dena Hines is finally getting justice. Lamar Davenport, the man who killed Hines in 2015, has reportedly been sentenced to 20 years in prison, the Manhattan D.A. Cyrus R. Vance Jr. confirms.

    Davenport's sentencing was mandated on Thursday (Jan. 17). He was convicted of manslaughter in May 2018. As previously reported, Davenport – who was dating Hines at the time – reportedly killed her in Aug. 2015 outside of their New York City apartment. Witnesses claimed that he repeatedly stabbed her as yelled out comments about religion.  E'Dena was 33.

    Davenport was acquitted of second-degree murder after his lawyer argued that he was high on PCP at the time of the murder. A judge ultimately found him guilty of first-degree manslaughter however.

    After he's released from prison, Davenport will reportedly be placed under post-release supervision for five years.

    Tyga Claps Back At Soulja Boy, Compares 2018 Streaming Stats

    Tyga is clapping back at Soulja Boy after he claimed that he had a bigger comeback than the Young Money artist in 2018. Tyga dropped some receipts on Twitter on Thursday (Jan. 17), proving that his bounce-back was far more superior than Soulja's.

    "Who had the biggest comeback?!" Tyga tweeted, referencing Soulja Boy's previous comments. The caption was attached to a side-by-side comparison of Tyga and Soulja's streaming numbers from 2018. The receipts showed that Tyga earned 884 million streams from 58 million fans, while Soulja had only 98 million streams from 16 million streams.

    Who had the biggest comeback?! 😭😭😭

    Despite the clear evidence, Soulja Boy insisted that he was still the "comeback king" of last year due to his other business ventures. "I HAD THE BIGGEST COMEBACK OF 2018," he wrote. "I RELEASED MY OWN VIDEO GAME CONSOLE IM THE FIRST RAPPER IN HISTORY TO DO SO!"

    As previously reported, Soulja first made the declaration during his interview on The Breakfast Club on Jan. 16. Meek Mill, Tory Lanez, and Lil Yachty previously defended Tyga against Soulja's remarks. Additionally, Soulja took shots at Drake, Kanye West, and the Migos for influencing their musical style.

    DAWN Relishes In Self-love On New Song "Sauce"

    DAWN is back with a sexy single off her forthcoming project, New Breed. "Sauce" is a sonic ode to pleasing all her hedonistic sexual desires after a long work week. Lyrically, the song is filled with suggestive lines and clever double-entendres that are far from coy when describing what she wants in the sack.

    Just as much as “Sauce” is about sex, it’s also about basking in self-pleasure that comes after genuine self-love. In a statement published by Stereogum, the former Danity Kane member described the message behind the song:

    “‘Sauce" is about women taking pride in their prowess, and about being raised to celebrate my skin,” DAWN said. “I lost focus of that when so many men degraded and disrespected my brown skin. ‘Sauce’ is about being bathed in your own beauty, being sexy for you. The new breed of women are unapologetic about sex and the way they choosing to express themselves.”

    DAWN recently joined Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex of Danity Kane for the DK3 reunion tour across the U.S. In an interview with Billboard, the Louisiana native revealed she wants to give fans more of her authentic self on New Breed.

    “This album is my relationship with New Orleans, me as a woman, and how being from New Orleans has created a person in me that acts and sees things a certain way. "'Jealousy'" is a prime example of that,” she said. “I just want to give you the girl from the 9th Ward that you guys only met once on [MTV's] Making The Band.”

    Listen to "Sauce" below. New Breed drops on Jan, 25.
