  1. Watch the video version of this article here! Lady Gaga is well known for making promises to her fans which she doesn't always come through on. Between a handful of unreleased music videos and an entire scrapped album, Little Monsters have gotten used to taking every announcement with a grain of salt and waiting for concrete releases before jumping on the hype bandwagon. But out of all of her broken promises, most likely the hardest for Gaga's fans to digest are the failed collaborations which she's teased before their ultimate cancellation. There are endless reasons for such cancellations, but it's safe to say that many stem from Gaga's own pickiness when it comes to her musical output. Although Gaga has worked with legends like Cher, Elton John and Britney Spears, none of these collaborations were ultimately released due to Gaga's displeasure with the material; while songs featuring rent-a-rappers such as Flo Rida and Too $hort and alleged child molester R. Kelly have been pushed by Gaga as potential hits. In other cases, behind the scenes dramas seem to have been the major contributing factor to cancellations, while yet others appear to simply be a case of bad timing. In this list, we'll be looking at eighteen of Gaga's most high-profile features which have remained unheard. Is anyone else as excited as I am to hear #9? 1. T.I. - Lick It (Feat. Lady Gaga) T.I. and Gaga worked together on the infamous 'Jewels and Drugs' for Gaga's ill-fated ARTPOP album, but if T.I. had had his way they would have done so a lot sooner. Back in 2010, T.I. teased that he and Gaga had worked together on a song called 'Lick It', intended at that point for his album No Mercy. "The one we have right now is entitled 'Lick It'," he stated, teasing, "I think we both have a tendency to shock the world in a lot of different ways." He further hinted that the two may continue to work together, saying "[We're] gonna go back in [the studio] and record some more songs." Ultimately, any collaboration they worked on for the album remained unreleased. According to former RadioARTPOP host Derek, who had ties to Gaga's team, Gaga found the song too "raunchy" and had never truly intended to release it with her vocals, even sending it to other singers to feature on. 2. T.I. - New National Anthem (Feat. Lady Gaga) Following the release of 'Jewels and Drugs', T.I. later mentioned that he was in the "final stages" of having Gaga record the chorus vocals for 'New National Anthem', a song later released as a single off Paperwork. Originally featuring demo vocals from Victoria Monet, the song would later go on to feature frequent collaborator Skylar Grey, with T.I. stating that Gaga was too "busy with her current project" to record vocals for the song. 3. Britney Spears - Telephone (Feat. Lady Gaga) You may remember that 'Telephone' was one of many hits offered to Britney that she eventually turned down for the Circus album, apparently because of the presence of another phone-themed song 'Phonography' on the project. But what you may not realise is that 'Telephone' was eventually reworked in duet form for Gaga and Britney, before debate over who owned the song halted it's release. At the time, Britney's team wanted the track for her upcoming greatest hits compilation The Singles Collection, while Gaga wanted it for The Fame Monster. After failing to come to a compromise over who the song belonged to, Gaga ended up taking it back and adding Beyoncé as a featured artist instead, leading to the hit we all know and love today. 4. Lady Gaga - TBA (Feat. Britney Spears) It was later hinted that Gaga and Britney may have had something in the works following the release of ARTPOP. When asked who she would like to work with next, Britney stated, "I would do a duet with Lady Gaga. I think that would be a lot of fun," continuing, "I think she's very different and interesting and intricate." Gaga then took to Twitter to publicly support the duet, stating: Although it was never officially confirmed that they worked on anything together, Gaga did attend Britney's Piece of Me show soon after, which may have been a way for them to further discuss the duet. Sadly, nothing ever eventuated. 5. Elton John & Lady Gaga - Hello Hello 'Hello Hello' was the first of many Elton and Gaga duets, and was recorded for the release of the 2011 Elton-funded musical animation Gnomeo & Juliet. Originally, the duet was meant to be included on the official soundtrack to the film; but possibly due to label disputes, the duet version was cut from the soundtrack and can now only be heard in the full film. While Elton's solo version appears on the album, the duet did leak several months later. 6. Lady Gaga - Room In My Heart (Feat. Elton John) In an interview with Zane Lowe prior to the release of Joanne, Elton confirmed that he had a writing session with Gaga scheduled for the next day, saying "I'm writing with Lady Gaga tomorrow". He stated that while he wasn't a fan of ARTPOP, he had heard several songs from Joanne and found them to be a return to form. Several months later, a title named 'Room In My Heart' was registered to publishing sites, with the writers listed as Gaga and Elton and the performer as Gaga alone. A song with the same title, but this time written by Diane Warren, was also registered at the same time. Unfortunately, any Elton collaboration that may have existed remains unreleased, despite the fact that it doubtless would have worked well on the rockabilly-inspired album. 7. Kendrick Lamar - PARTYNAUSEOUS (Feat. Lady Gaga) 'PARTYNAUSEOUS' was originally conceived as a song by Kendrick Lamar featuring Gaga back in 2012. It was planned to be released as a single on September 6th of that year from Lamar's album Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, but was cut due to creative differences on which direction the song should take. This led to two different versions of the song existing: one, a slow R&B version which leaked in 2015; and another, an EDM-styled rave track which Gaga reworked as an interlude for the ARTPOP Ball tour. The song, from Gaga's perspective, details her efforts to make peace with the country of Indonesia, which banned her from performing during The Born This Way Ball Tour in 2012. 8. Kendrick Lamar - Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe (Feat. Lady Gaga) 'Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe' was another Kendrick Lamar collaboration which Gaga sang the chorus for. After their creative relationship ended, Kendrick released a solo version of the track on his album (later recruiting Jay-Z for the single release), while Gaga later leaked her contribution to the song online. "We had a date, but we had to meet the deadline for the pre-order date," Kendrick explained when asked why the song went unreleased. "That’s just the business side coming through and messing things up. But you know it’s God’s plan. I’m not really too tight about it because I know we have something special." 9. Paul McCartney - TBA (Feat. Lady Gaga) Paul McCartney has had a song with Gaga in the can since 2015, when Gaga announced via Instagram that they had been in a session alongside instrumentalists such as Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready. It was later revealed that the track, described as a "rollicking tune", was in fact a soundtrack selection for McCartney's long-awaited film High in the Clouds. An adaptation of his 2005 book on capitalism, High in the Clouds has been in the works since 2009 and has only just gotten a writer, so it's unlikely to be released anytime soon; but as far as we know, this duet is still planned for release at some point in the future. 10. The Midway State - Don't Give Up (Feat. Lady Gaga) 'Don't Give Up' is a cover of a duet originally recorded by Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush. The idea for the collaboration came from Gaga's producer Martin Kierszenbaum, who introduced The Midway State and Gaga in 2008. "When we finished [recording], we were both super into it so shortly thereafter we recorded a video for the song [in L.A.]," said the band's Nathan Ferraro. The video itself was a homage to the original video by Gabriel and Bush, and features a still shot of Gaga and Ferraro embracing as the camera moves around them. The video, along with the song, leaked in 2008. "I didn't cry but I was disappointed," said Ferraro. "In this business you get used to that, it's just a snap of the fingers. It was just a matter of she was blowing up at the time and they can't put a huge push or millions of dollars behind every single artistic thing she does". 11. Cher - The Greatest Thing (Feat. Lady Gaga) 'The Greatest Thing' is a song originally recorded in 2007 by Gaga and longtime producer RedOne under the name 'Greatest'. "I wrote that song a long time ago, and I've never put it on one of my own albums for, really, no particular reason," Gaga said in an MTV interview. "I always write these concept records, and it just didn't fit in. But it's always been, like, this big, massive, beautiful hit record and everyone always says, 'Why don't you put that on your album?' And I said, 'I don't know, it just doesn't fit with everything else.'" Later, in 2011, when RedOne and Cher were collaborating, he pitched her the song for potential inclusion on her 25th studio album Closer To The Truth. Originally, the song was meant to be a solo track; but it was later revealed that Gaga wanted to appear on a remix "for the gays", before being convinced by RedOne to appear on the original. While the song was at one point intended to be the second single from the album, Gaga ultimately decided that she didn't like her vocals on the song, and Cher ended up axing it entirely after RedOne failed to get in contact with her in time. The song would later leak in 2013. 12. Trina - Let Dem Hoes Fight (Feat. Lady Gaga & Kalenna) 'Let Dem Hoes Fight' was one of three songs Gaga worked on alongside Kalenna, Jim Jonsin and The JAM in 2008. "We started writing a song called 'Freezer Burn' and that song turned out really good, so we did another song called 'Kaboom.'," explained Jonsin. "We were playing the songs back, trying to figure out who to give them to. So I said, ‘As far as the labels are concerned, just let them hoes fight over who gets the song.’ Everyone was like, 'Jim, that’s a great song title!' And in like 20 minutes, we had that song with Lady Gaga." A year later, when Trina was working on her album Amazin, Jonsin suggested that she rework the track for herself featuring Gaga for release on the album. While Gaga was featured on the song when the album was sent out for review, she was removed from the track by the time the album was officially released, possibly due to label conflicts. However, her version did later leak. 13. Barbra Streisand - TBA (Feat. Lady Gaga) Barbra Streisand's thirty fourth album Partners, an all-male duet album, was in the works for over two years before it was ultimately released. When it was first announced in 2012, producer Walter Afanasieff teased that the album would include collaborations with Robin Thicke, Usher, Yo Yo Ma, Willie Nelson and Babyface - although ultimately, only the Babyface duet would make the cut. Two years later he teased that "Lionel Richie, [...] Blake Shelton, Stevie Wonder, Josh Groban, Michael Bublè, Lady Gaga, Bette Midler, Andrea Bocelli, Beyoncè, Billy Joel [and] John Mayer" would all appear on the album, but ultimately the three females made mention of were not included on the final tracklisting. It's unknown if a duet was ever recorded, but it's possible that Barbra and Gaga recorded a song together which was scrapped when she decided to go with an all-male list of partners. 14. Lady Gaga - Ratchet (Feat. Azealia Banks) 'Ratchet' was a collaboration recorded with Azealia Banks, intended for the ARTPOP project. Ultimately, after some untimely Twitter beefs on Banks's part, the song was cut from ARTPOP with Gaga stating that Banks had a "bad attitude". We have a small snippet of Gaga performing the track live, and an official instrumental was later released by producer DJ White Shadow on his Clock Is Ticking EP in 2013; but as of yet, the full version of the song has yet to be heard. 15. Lady Gaga - Red Flame (Feat. Azealia Banks) 'Red Flame' was another collaboration recorded with Azealia Banks for ARTPOP, which was cut for the same reason as 'Ratchet'. A sister song to 'Mary Jane Holland', the song explores the 'Princess High' persona Gaga was embodying at the time. A watermarked version of the song went on to leak in 2016, but it seemed to be in an unfinished state. 16. Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett - Paradise 'Paradise' was initially announced for Gaga's collaborative album with Tony Bennett, Cheek to Cheek, as one of several original songs on the album. Like much of Joanne after it, the song was a dedication to Gaga's aunt who passed away of lupus, and was intended to mark the conversation she had with her brother before she passed. Ultimately, the song went unreleased due to Gaga's nervousness over her jazz composition abilities, although she hinted that she may release the song in the future. It's unknown if Gaga was the sole artist to feature on the song or if Bennett was also involved. 17. Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett - TBA When Cheek to Cheek was first announced, it was initially only going to include songs by one songwriter. "I can't mention the composer because I don't want anybody to do it before we do it, but there's a great composer that's very underrated, very famous, but not as famous as Gershwin or Porter," Bennett stated. "But he did as many hit songs as anybody, and so we're gonna do a big swinging album." Ultimately, the album featured a collection of songs from the Great American Songbook (including cuts from Gershwin and Porter), and only a few of them were written by the same composers. Given that recording for Cheek to Cheek occured quite a while after it's announcement, it's unlikely that a full album of songs by just one songwriter was ever recorded. 18. Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett - TBA Immediately after the release of Cheek to Cheek, Bennett announced that he and Gaga were planning a potential sequel to the album inspired by Cole Porter's musical Red, Hot and Blue, a statement he echoed a year later when he revealed that they were releasing an album full of Porter renditions. According to Bennett, Gaga wanted to record a follow-up "right away". While giving a performance in Idaho in 2015, Bennett announced that the album would drop in 2016; and a year later, Bennett stated that the two had continued discussions regarding a second album, and that they would begin recording in 2017. In late 2017, he stated that he and Gaga had a duet that would drop on New Year's Eve, but this also did not occur. It's currently unknown if the two have recorded anything beyond their first album together. Which of Lady Gaga's unreleased collaborations do you most want to hear?

  2. Grimes has confirmed via Instagram that she has worked with DISGASTING Banks on a song for DISGASTING's album, Fantasea II: The Career I Could Have Had. I used to like 'Kill V. Maim' but after this I'm having nothing to do with Grimes anymore. The fact that these Hollywood liberals can be so against homophobia, sexism and racism when it's conducted by a white man like Trump but are totally fine with it coming from a black woman is disgusting to me. Bye Grimes!
  3. Just when we thought that the good sis Azealia Banks had well and truly buried her career once and for all when she incited the rage of the world's most fearsome fanbase, the Directioners, 2016's version of the Hydra has reared another one of it's ugly heads - and this one is noticeably paler than the last. Just months after referring to former One Direction singer Zayn Malik as a "curry scented bitch", the formerly well-renowned rapper has taken once again to the Internet to reveal to her rapidly diminishing fanbase that she has begun the process of bleaching her skin. Describing the process as "body modification", Banks claimed that skin bleaching was little more serious than wearing a weave. "Nobody was upset when I was wearing 30-inch weaves and tearing out my edges and doing all that type of shit like that," she mentioned. "You guys loved it!" Banks made the revelation in a 21 minute livestream on Facebook, a medium she has resorted to since the suspension of her Twitter account several months ago. Rather than endure the entire 21 minutes of agony, feel free to peruse this shorter clip posted by WorldStarHipHop on Twitter below: When the issue was pressed on Instagram, Banks made correlations between skin bleaching and cosmetic surgery, saying, “What's the difference between getting a nose job and changing your skin colour?” Banks refused to accept claims that she may be shunning her African American ancestry through the practise, saying that such accusations were "petty" and "stupid". "I don't really think it's important to discuss the cultural significance of skin bleaching anymore because just as African American people in this world, or Black people, you assimilate," she said. "There are things that you accept not out of necessity, but things that become the norm because it's just happening all of the time." What do you think of Banks' revelations? Is she right to say that she was pressed into the practise by her fans supporting beauty techniques like hair weaves and nose jobs? Or is skin bleaching just one step too far? Let us know your thoughts below!
  4. Azealia Banks 34 mins · Facebook Mentions · Nicki girl..... now listen. Don't start throwing shade cause you miss safaree and know that I've actually made a BANGER with him. Don't get mad, get even. Slim down a bit (especially in your neck and arms). Decrease the butt just a bit (I've seen your butt make some really expensive dresses look really cheap) and STOP WEARING SPANDEX AS AN OUTFIT FOR FUCKS SAKE. Also stop calling yourself the queen of rap. Queens don't wear spandex sweety. Marketing genius yes, but your cheap made in China perfume smells like car freshener and your beverage tastes like kitchen cleaner. McDonalds sells a lot of burgers but no one is telling McDonald's that they're the pinnacle of cuisine and taste. This is true of you. You run around the meadow collecting all the low hanging fruit so you may turn around and congratulate yourself for having the most fruit, but all of the fruit is mealy and mushy. I don't understand why you are so impressed with yourself. Do yourself a favor and image search gaga 2011 and pick that back up! This "real" Nicki is not as interesting as Gaga-knock off Nicki. GIVE THE GIRLS WHAT THEY WANT. And stay tuned for my joint with your man. I really think you're gonna love it ! In 2017 I hope you find some new inspiration and decrease your butt implants you would honestly look SOOOOO much better if they were just 150cc smaller. Cheers to female rap! Happy Holidays! -Azealia ❤️
  5. Just when we thought that the gay bashing, bouncer punching, fake friend to Rihanna/real friend to rapists/occasional musician Azealia Banks had finally disappeared from the pop radar, the twenty first centuries representation of jealousy has reared it's ugly head once more to spew even more entitled opinions laced with sexism, racism and homophobia! Banks fittingly waited until the first day of black history month to announce that she would officially be endorsing Donald Trump in the 2016 American presidential elections, before going on a full-blown rant about racism, capitalism, the American dream and the state of the nation. In her own words:
  6. This was posted on Azealia Banks' Snapchat story earlier today, and was described by her as a video of her sacrificing chickens. "The amount of cunt that is about to come off my floor right now guys, oh my God," she says in a prelude to the main video, which has since been deleted. "Three years worth of brujeria [witchcraft]. Yes, you know I got to scrape all this shit up. I got my sandblaster and my goggles." In response, Queen of Animal Rights Sia tweeted: If there are no objections, PHF will now be an Azealia Banks free zone. I'm sick of her disgusting comments about minority groups and this was really the icing on the cake. Let me know in the comments below if you're happy for us to ban all discussion of this mentally ill demon from our website.
  7. Just gonna keep posting all the disgusting shit that this girl says because it's fun to watch her fans try and justify all this shit.
  8. Iggy got real during a Power 106 interview about contemplating suicide due to all the negative comments she heard from both the general public and the industry following her debut album. Later, on an Instagram post regarding the interview, Azealia encouraged Iggy to commit suicide. So I guess the real question here is: how can her fans justify their support of her? This is a sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic basket case and at this point I don't really think it matters how good or bad her music is. How does she still have fans?
  9. Azealia Banks, one-time star and full-time irritant, has made waves for her destructive behaviour once again after being arrested outside New York's Up&Down club last night. The incident mirrors a similiar situation which occured in September, when Banks controversially called a flight attendant a "fucking faggot" after an on-flight scuffle in which she spat in a man's face and scratched at his shirt. According to sources, Banks was at the club for a private party which required a hand stamp to get in. When she tried to enter the downstairs party with no stamp and a guest who was not on the list, she was told to go back upstairs, which lead to an altercation breaking out with bouncers. Allegedly, after the two bouncers failed to recognise the rapper, Banks began screaming curse words and racist slurs at them, attracting the attention of the club owner. Even after the owner gave her a stamp to let her in, Banks continued the tirade, screaming her credentials at the guards by claiming that she was featured on Rihanna's upcoming album. When security approached to escort her from the building, Banks spat in the female bouncers face; and as they escorted her out at around 12:30 a.m., she apparently bit the same guard in the breast, breaking her shirt and, according to a police report, "causing swelling and redness". After being removed from the club, Banks apparently started screaming, "I'm gonna call the cops!", approaching a police traffic enforcement car. She then returned to the club with police officers in tow, bizarrely going on to punch the female bouncer in full view of them. "Why are you arresting me?", she asked the cops as she was taken to the Sixth Precinct on a misdemenaor charge of third-degree assault and held for evaluation. For the record, Rihanna herself has never confirmed any features on ANTI, apart from presumably Paul McCartney and Kanye West on lead single 'FourFiveSeconds'. In fact, the only hint that she might even know who Azealia is comes from this Snapchat video, which appears to show them, Cara Delevigne and Travis Scott dancing at one of Scott's tour afterparties. On the other hand, Azealia can't seem to keep RiRi's name out of her mouth. In yet another strange move, the rapper released an official press statement back in March of this year just to announce to the world that she was tired of being RiRi's understudy, and that she looked up to female musicians like Lana Del Rey, Meghan Trainor and Taylor Swift. On the other hand, in 2013 Banks referred to Rita Ora as "Rihanna's understudy" during a Twitter beef with the English singer. That said, this isn't the first time there's been rumours of Azealia and Ri collaborating. Back in 2012, before the release of Lady Gaga's ARTPOP when she and Banks were still on good terms, there was rumours that they, along with Rihanna and Beyonce, would feature on 'Ratchet', an alleged sequel to Gaga's 'Telephone'. Would you be here for a Azealia collaboration on the long-awaited ANTI? Or with RiRi's choice of A-list stars like Kanye or Eminem, should she be setting her sights higher? Is Azealia's behaviour a result of her infamous arrogance, or the sign of a potential mental illness? Let us know in the comments below!
  10. Azealia Banks, the former rapper who is now known more for her insane Twitter rants and aggressive publicity stunts, has faced more controversy today following an encounter on a plane in which she spit in a man's face, punched him, and called a flight attendant a "fucking faggot". The incident started when Azealia, who was sitting in row six, tried to leave the plane ahead of a French passenger and his wife, who were seated in row three. The man held out his hand to prevent her from going past them, and Azealia allegedly snapped on the passenger. Allegedly, Azealia began by spitting in the man's face, before attempting to punch him in the face. She then began to claw at his shirt, hurtling insults as she did so. At this point, a flight attendant grabbed the rapper's bag and asked her to calm down. She supposedly lost her balance and fell down onto the seat, before standing up and attempting to grab the luggage back from the attendant. The video shows the outcome of this as she screams at the attendant for her bag and, after it is given to her, calling him a "fucking faggot". The co-pilot, who had emerged from the front of the plan after noticing the ruckus, told her that police were called, causing her to run off the plane and drop her cell phone. The police eventually found Azealia as she picked up her baggage, and spoke with witnesses on the plane and the French man who had been attacked. The man decided not to press charges as he was on holidays in the country and the legal process would be lengthy and difficult. As is her fashion, Banks took to Twitter not long after the incident to share her side of the story. According to the rapper, she was actually punched in the face by the man prior to her violence, saying, “Ok so I get hit in the face by a man and no one cares. The[y] only hear what I called the man who was blocking my exit. I don’t care. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I don’t tolerate bitchassness and I don’t tolerate men putting their hands on me.” The man's violence was not corroborated by any of the other witnesses on the plane. Azealia has since deleted the Tweets, but left up one saying, “Now you all can sit here in your fake outrage and discuss this amongst yourselves !! I’m headed to the beauty parlor! SIYONARA MOTHERF*CKERS.” This isn't the first time Azealia's gotten into hot water over her use of the word "faggot". Back in 2013, after beefing with Bauuer over her remix of his hit track 'Harlem Shake', Banks called not only the DJ but also Perez Hilton, who got involved in the beef, a "faggot", again on Twitter. Check out the video below and let us know what you think after the jump!
  11. This woman is a disgusting pig and I am disgusted by anyone who stans her.
