Don't even front on CJ Fam.

She may just want to be an "Ordinary Pop Star," but in reality, she's so much more than ordinary. And by more we mean less. Much, much less.

In her defense, this aspiring singer appears to be about eight years old, so she has some time to hone her skills. But she'd better get cracking.

For now, she's just a plan-looking, overly auto-tuned youngster whose music video features absurd, annoyingly catchy lyrics and a random rapper.

On second thought, that's the Rebecca Black formula for success ...

For the second time this month, Lady Gaga took a fall in concert in Atlanta last night. And, in vintage Gaga fashion, got up and carried on, unfazed.

The pop star fell off of a fire-spewing piano during a concert in Houston April 10, and has taken numerous other spills and tumbles over the years.

As Weird Al's Lady Gaga parody told us, she performs this way ...

You know you were hoping for this when you got up today.

Simon van Kempen just joined an exclusive club - Countess LuAnn, Danielle Staub and Kim Zolciak are members - of Bravo cast members who put out music.

We'd say sing, but he doesn't really do that (nor do they). At least in Simon's case, The Real Housewives of New York City star seems to be going for humor.

At least we hope. "I Am Real" is a bass-thumping, synth-heavy dance track filled with defiant lyrics aimed at "cheeky tongue waggers." You gotta hear it:

Weird Al Yankovic, whose career comprised of parodying hit songs has lasted longer and been more lucrative than many of his subjects, has released a new gem.

"Perform This Way" is Al's take on Lady Gaga's "Born This Way," and includes plenty of the satirical lyrical wordplay that are Yankovic's hilarious trademarks.

Its release follows myriad reports that Gaga blocked the parody - which she can't even do, legally, but Al always gets permission from the stars in good faith.

In any case, Gaga’s manager nixed it without telling her. Word got back to Gaga, who was not pleased. The manager is sorry. Gaga loves it. Everyone is happy.

Here's Weird Al's "Perform This Way," his homage to Gaga, with lyrics:

The Regualtors are mounting up one last time.

In the early '90s, Warren G and Nate Dogg produced one of the most memorable hip hop hits in history. Now the former is releasing a tribute to his fallen comrade.

Nate Dogg died last month at the age of 41, but his smooth vocal collaborations with Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Dr. Dre and, of course, Warren G, will always live on.

Listen to Warren's tribute song to Nate here:

Sergio Flores, a.k.a. the Sexy Sax Man on YouTube, just got bumped from playing at Coachella this weekend, a gig he landed after his viral shenanigans.

The Sexy Sax Man  was scheduled to perform at an event Saturday, but got bumped at the last second for MGMT's lead singer Andrew VanWyngarden.

Sergio feels "completely blindsided by Coachella organizers," who didn't even comp his ticket. Luckily, he did perform briefly for some fans outside.

Why, you ask, are we even writing about him?

Because he sports a long mullet, plays George Michael's "Careless Whisper" on the sax (often shirtless) and gets thrown out of random places. Watch:

Leave it to Lady Gaga, no stranger to getting people talking as it is, to up the ante tenfold this weekend with a controversial new song about "Judas."

Told through the perspective of Mary Magdelene, the lyrics go like this:

"In the most Biblical sense / I am beyond repentance / Fame hooker, prostitute wench, vomits her mind / But in the cultural sense / I just speak in future tense / Judas kiss me if offensed / Or wear ear condom next time..."

Okay then ...

Gaga's creative director, Laurieann Gibson, who is religious herself, says they made sure to not offend anyone. Here's how she describes the song:

"It was amazing to have that conversation about salvation, peace and the search for the truth in a room of non-believers and believers, to me, that was saying God is active in a big way. And the place that it came to is surreal."

"We don't touch on things that we have no right touching upon, but the inspiration, the soul and idea that out of your oppression, your darkness, your Judas, you can come into the marvelous light. So it's about the inspiration and to never give up."

In conclusion, she says Lady Gaga has "created a new Jerusalem."

Has she? Tell us: What do you think of Gaga's "Judas"?

Britney Spears has just released an alternate version of her music video for "Till The World Ends," and this one is light on apocalypse, heavy on Britney.

Focused almost exclusively on the pop star's dance moves and less on the original's crazy special effects, it's a more traditional music video in a sense.

No end-of-the-world shots, doomsday references or general craziness here. Just dancing, partying and a sprinkler system. In other words ... NICE!

Check out the original version after the jump and see which of the two you like better. Videos aside, it's one of her catchier tunes in years, right?

Rhode Island's most famous DJ and rap's biggest gangsta, together at last.

Pauly D is close to joining forces with G-Unit, 50 Cent's label, as 50 desperately wants to sign the Jersey Shore star and has offered a three-album deal.

In a sign of the apocalypse - but not one you can really get upset about 'cause c'mon, who doesn't love Pauly D - the two sides are nearing a contract.

Paul D

The Jersey Shore pimp/DJ met with Fiddy and his people in NYC last week, where they discussed the lucrative record deal and a Pauly D merchandise line.

Specifically, Pauly D-brand headphones, obviously.

Nothing's signed yet,but according to sources, 50 wants to hammer out the deal ASAP before Pauly jets off to shoot Jersey Shore Season 4 in Italy.

Talks have become so serious, 50 and Pauly have even started to kick around ideas for other artists he and Pauly can collaborate with. Any ideas?

In the music world, being covered by Glee is a sign that you've made it and a true honor. Unless you're Dave Grohl or Kings of Leon, but that's another story.

The Fox hit's latest adaptation may be a major shark-jumper, though.

Rebecca Black’s “Friday,” which just surpassed 100 million views on YouTube due to the fact that it's the worst song ever, is getting the Glee treatment.

The song will appear an upcoming episode that centers around prom, and will either be sung by Kevin McHale, Chord Overstreet and Mark Salling, or by Salling and returning guest star Jonathan Groff, reprising his role as Jesse St. James.

Seriously, this is happening.

What do you think? A fun move by a fun show, or, as one critic put it, is a Glee cover of Rebecca Black like a herpes version of chlamydia? Sound off below.
