GaGa's Former Producer Sued…But She's Not Involved!

Filed under: Legal MattersLady GaGa

Lady GaGa settled her lawsuit with former producer Rob Fusari…and now HE'S getting sued by someone ELSE!

Singer/songwriter Wendy Starland is suing Fusari for cutting her out after finding GaGa for him. Specifically, she's charging Fusari and his company with "breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment and quantum meruit."

Here's what Starland claims Fusari asked her to find:

“…Unique female singer, under the age of 25, who could be the female equivalent of the lead singer of the band The Strokes.”

Here's what she claims Fusari promised her:

“…If she could find and introduce him to such a singer, they would work together to develop the singer and share equally in any revenues earned as a result.”

Starland claims that after Fusari got GaGa a record deal, he agreed to share revenues with her, but never followed through on their agreement.

Was anyone else out there involved in launching GaGa's career?

So, so exciting!

The Strokes have reunited for the first time since October of 2006, and performed a secret show in London on Wednesday night!!

Playing under the alias Venison at the venue Dingwalls, the band reportedly performed 18 songs, none of which were new tracks, unfortunately, but we don't care!

We're thrilled! We've missed ALL of you bbs!

They'll apparently be headlining the Isle of Wright Festival on Saturday and RockNess on Sunday, and we're hearing a fourth album is in the works!

Excellent!! It's about time!!

The Strokes Are Recording A New Album - Does Anybody Care?

Filed under: Music Minute

After a four-year hiatus, singer Julian Casablancas has announced that The Strokes are scheduled to release a new album early next year saying, "I think January. I was told not to predict anymore. But I’m pretty sure it should be out in January."

He also revealed that the band has been recording their material in New York instead of their home in Los Angeles, adding:

"For me, there’s something about recording in New York - I was just thinking about it literally yesterday for the first time, in terms of if I could have a choice, because everywhere I’ve ever recorded has kinda been like a logical choice or out of necessity. But there’s something about recording in a nice studio in New York. Maybe it’s just because it’s expensive, I dunno. Recording in LA is nice though."

We're glad that they've decided to come back together after all their various solo projects, but are The Strokes even relevant any more??

What do U think?

This is going to be FANTASTIC!

Sir Paul McCartney will be performing his first ever SOLO stadium tour in the UK this summer!!

The Beatles legend, who is effing 67, will also be headlining Hard Rock Calling, and then the Isle of Wight music festival with Jay-Z and The Strokes!!!

A source says:

"It is really amazing for a man of his age to embark on such a grueling, massive tour. Put simply, these will be his biggest ever shows in Britain. So, really, it just shows what great shape he is in."

McCartney says:

"It's always brilliant to play for the home crowd and these dates are the ones that me and the band are really excited about. This will be my first show on the Isle of Wight and I'm looking forward to a rollicking night of rock 'n' roll. I always remember hearing such great things about this festival and it has such a sense of history with the likes of Jimi Hendrix playing there the first time round."

How unbelievably exciting!!

For our readers in that neck of the woods, here are the tour dates:

June 12 - RDS, Dublin
June 13 - Isle of Wight Festival
June 20 - Hampden Park, Glasgow
