Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga have lent their name and their words of encouragement to a great cause.

Both artists have recorded videos in which they send prayers and urge fans to donate whatever they can afford to the victims of this month's earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Bieber will also record a song for a CD whose proceeds will benefit those affected, while Lady Gaga's bracelets have raised $1.5 million for the crises.

Lady Gaga. Born This Way. Country edition?

Believe it. The pop star's hit single may or may not be stolen from various other acts, but this version is all her - and unlike you've ever heard her before.

The Mother Monster dropped the tune at midnight this morning. More laid-back and mellow than the original, it also features some new lyrics at the end.

Listen to Gaga go country, with her usual disco-thumping beats replaced by laconic guitars, beautiful harmonica and seriously soulful crooning, below ...

Is Rebecca Black is the worst singer in human history? Is "Friday" only "good" because it is so, SO beyond bad? Are you laughing at her, and loving it?

Lay off, says the spokesperson for all things cool, the Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga. In fact, we should bow down to this fledgling music star!

"I think it's fantastic," she in her recent Google interview. "I say Rebecca Black is a genius and anyone that's telling her she's cheesy is full of $h!t."

The Queen hath spoken. Consider yourself enlightened.

Lady Gaga wowed fans and a crowd of Google employees Tuesday with a live interview that spanned more than 70 minutes from the company's California campus.

Gaga was there to shill for her new album Born This Way and the Google Moderator service in a chat with Google V.P. of consumer products, Marissa Mayer.

Here's the full interview with the pop sensation ...

Some Gaga revelations from the event ...

  • She's a yoga fanatic.
  • Her entourage taunts her with food; her security peeps kind of hate her.
  • Kids that used to bully her in school contact her for concert tickets now.
  • Gaga does the same vocal exercises she's been doing since age 11.
  • All of Lady Gaga's tattoos are on the left side of her body.
  • Lady Gaga would like to take her fans "away from the computer."
  • Despite writing the song "Paparazzi," she doesn't hate them.
  • She actually doesn't know about Rebecca Black's "Friday" ...
  • ... but she does love "David After the Dentist" on YouTube.

For someone who prides herself on being unique, this is the second time in as many months that Lady Gaga stands accused of being anything but.

Gaga's hit single, "Born This Way," was criticized for sounding strikingly similar to Madonna ("Express Yourself") upon its release earlier this year.

Now it's fans of South Korean girl group SNSD crying foul, claiming "Born This Way" is SO similar to their hit "Be Happy" that it may be plagiarism ...

Thoughts? Is there anything to it? It's worth noting that the first wave of controversy basically died when Madonna said she supports Gaga's hit.

The track, from SNSD's album Oh!, came out in early 2010. Some pop songs will sound similar. It's inevitable. Plagiarism is a different matter.

What do you think? Did Gaga rip off "Born This Way"?

Want to look like Lady Gaga?

That's probably not gonna happen, unless you want to wear dresses made of meat, hatch from ornate eggs or start hermaphrodite rumors about yourself.

Just the same, in a new People feature, the superstar opens up about her beauty routines, which are surprisingly normal when you consider the source.

Wait ... you mean Lady Gaga washes her face with Ivory soap and brushes her teeth before bed? You've GOT to be kidding. Where has she been all our lives?!

Lady Gaga Style

This isn't to say Gaga's beauty practices are entirely conventional.

Asked how many nights per week she goes to bed wearing makeup, she replies, “Seven. That is not good for your skin, but I’m blessed with good genes.”

Something that is good for her skin, and everyone's, is the sunblock that she brings everywhere: “I don’t tan my face because it’s bad for wrinkles,” she adds.

Above all, Gaga - whose favorite fragrances growing up were Versace Baby Rose Jeans and Revlon’s Jean Naté - says the best beauty tip is to be yourself.

“Just go with your gut,” she urges. “Whenever you try to be someone else, it’s boring.” So is that why she’s skipping mascara and fake lashes these days?

“I think it’s more modern not to wear [either]. I just wear eyeliner,” the star says, something to which some recent Lady Gaga pictures can certainly attest.

Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" is just too provocative for Malaysians to hear. That's what the government of the Southeast Asian nation decreed this week.

The government there ordered radio stations to play an edited version of the hit song because its lyrics are an affront to Malaysia's conservative values.

Long and Lean Gaga

So what exactly was so offensive?

A refrain proclaiming "No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered life, I'm on the right track, baby I was born this way," makes it pretty clear ...

Little Monsters in Malaysia instead hear a jumble of indecipherable words due to the nation's cultural restrictions on anything promoting an LGBT lifestyle.

"'Born This Way' may be considered as offensive when viewed against Malaysia's social and religious observances," said the country's AMP Radio Network.

"The entire issue of being gay, lesbian or [bisexual] is still considered as a 'taboo' by general Malaysians."

Lady Gaga herself has yet to speak publicly about the "BTW" censorship, but given her recent fallout with Target, we don't expect this news to go over well.

You may not love her music, but you have to respect the lengths to which Lady Gaga will go for her fans. Saturday night, she was the talk of ... Louisville.

After a show at the KFC Yum! Center (yes, that is a real venue), she hit a gay bar called Connections, where a Gaga impersonator show was in progress.

Gaga popped up on stage around 1:15 a.m., right in the middle of her hit song, "Born This Way." She proceeded to join this faux Lady in a duet! Watch:

She'd already performed her smash hit song in concert, but this rendition at the club, where she showed up unannounced, was likely more memorable.

Following the duet with her 6-foot doppelganger, Gaga did a stage dive into the crowd before strutting off stage to the delight of stunned club-goers.

Don't be a drag ... just join a queen on stage. She rules.

Lady Gaga is reaching out to her Little Monsters to help support tsunami victims in Japan. Appropriately, she's doing so with a fashionable twist.

She designed a simple white and red bracelet, with the phrase "We Pray for Japan" in both English and Japanese. All proceeds go to relief efforts.

The singer Tweeted: "I Designed a Japan Prayer Bracelet. Buy It/Donate here and ALL proceeds will go to Tsunami Relief Efforts. Go Monsters!"

Mugler Shot

She's off the wall with fashion, but on the ball when it comes to charity.

Gaga's bracelet costs a modest $5, but the Mother Monster encouraged her legions of followers - eight million on Twitter alone - to donate more if they can.

Of course, there will be critics claiming "she's only doing it for publicity" another such nonsense. But it's always nice to see celebs using their fame for good.

Follow the jump for a look at the item in question and if you wish to own one and support an important cause, the link above will make it happen ...
