Lady Gaga – another normal day on the web with Gaga the number 1 search. Today’s news is that fans managed to crash the website after it  offered her new album Born This Way for just $0.99 on Monday. The good news for UK fans is that there is still a deal via the site offering the new album as a download for £3.99.

The singer was born Stefani Germanotta in 1986 and is known for her outrageous fashion styling and music videos.

She is one of the biggest earners in the music industry and was Billboard magazine’s Artist of the Year in 2010.

Her biggest hit to date is probably the 2009 single Poker Face, which made the Number One spot in most countries worldwide, selling almost 10m copies.

Geordie Shore – new reality show on MTV starts today in the UK at 10pm. The show is to be a UK take on the popular Jersey Shore. For more on the show see MTV’s official site. Oh, and in case you were in any doubt from the title, the show is set in Newcastle.
