Beyonce & Gaga allegedly shot a music video for “Video Phone” in Greenpoint this week. Reports from the scene say they both dressed all crazy — Beyonce in a feathered dress and Gaga in, lord, who knows I’m guessing a giant light bulb? — and the site was extremely secure.
On Thursday (October 15), a spokesperson for director Hype Williams confirmed to MTV News that that both Beyonc√© and Gaga appear in the “Video Phone” clip, which Williams shot last weekend in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood.

If a series of tweets between Animal’s Bucky Turco and Burning Angel’s Joanna Angel are any indication, the Hipster Grifter is allegedly looking to make a little career move after serving her nine-month sentence in a Utah jail and do some porn, er, pose nude.
Now, she’s been published nude before after some photos were leaked on a blog during Hipster Grifter-Gate earlier this year, but this is different. This would be THG posing for Burning Angel, a site that is self-described as, “Alt, Emo, Tattoo, Goth, and Punk Rock hardcore porn at it’s best with video, pics and blogs.”
For Kari, this is a fantastic development. THG the brand is only getting edgier, and if she keeps sending these letters from a Utah jail that Animal’s been publishing, her tattooed star will only shine brighter. And as Bucky tells us, “It can’t hurt her resume and she is going to need a job when she gets out.”
Bucky Turco: @JoannaAngel Hey Joanna. The Hipster Grifter once again asked about a photo shoot when she gets out. Do you have an answer for her?
Joanna Angel: @buckyturco yes i would love to have her on the website.
Bucky Turco: @JoannaAngel Cool. I’m gonna print out your tweet and mail it to her. Thanks!
Fly, little USPS delivery man, and send along the printed tweet of news! The
media world awaits the impending stream of hotdogs and hallways.
UPDATE!!!1!!: Bucky noticed I missed a rather important tweet in this whole shi-bang, from one Joanna Angel: “@buckyturco tell her I would love to fuck her on camera… I think we’d have a lot of fun =)”. Joanna Angel. Wants to fuck. The Hipster Grifter. On camera. Good night, and good luck.
Since we love all things Grizzly Bear, we’d feel negligent if we failed to share the 411 about Chris Taylor’s new project. From Stereogum:
We were recently introduced to Chris Taylor’s new label with Ethan Silverman, Terrible Records, via its first release Acrylics earlier this month. CT takes a production credit on that band’s debut EP, as he has for Dirty Projectors (Rise Above), Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson (self-titled), and Grizzly Bear’s Yellow House and Veckatmest. No surprise then that Taylor handles all facets of the release, recording, and production for the solo track “Ghosts,” his first issue under the name Cant.
We’re huge Tom Waits fans, so we’re of course excited to hear this free, 8-song sample from his upcoming live record Glitter and Doom Live. You have to enter a vaild email, but its well worth it:
from the website
Check out the first 8 songs for free, including a roaring version of ‚”Get Behind the Mule” and a slinky reinvention of ‚”Singapore,” and if you love the album as much as we think you will, you can pre-order it HERE. CD and LP include as a bonus the 35 minute disc/track ‚”Tom Tales,” compiling between‚Äêsong banter from throughout the tour into a continuous monologue, and chronicling for the first time one of fans’ favorite parts of a Waits’ performance.
