'I'm feeling particularly slutty tonight," Stefani Germanotta purred to a sold-out Susquehanna Bank Center on Thursday night. Known to her fans - as well as anyone who's passed within hailing distance of a working radio or TV set in the last year - as Lady Gaga, she arrived with the kind of explosive force that can incinerate artists unprepared for the spotlight. Since the success of her insidious, inescapable single "Poker Face," Gaga has staged a blizzard of reinvention, from sex kitten to bondage queen, as well as what might be a visitor from a far more stylish future.

Adele scored six Grammy nominations Wednesday night, including for record, song, and album of the year, but the owner of 2011's best-selling album with 21 wasn't the night's top nominee - and that wasn't the evening's only surprise. Kanye West came away with a leading seven nominations, including a bid for song of the year for his all-star song "All of the Lights. " However, the album from which it came - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, heralded by many critics as the best album of 2010 - was shut out of the best album category, and all of his other nominations were relegated to the rap fields.

Until Friday's Electric Factory show, the hype surrounding Lady Gaga seemed too good to be true. Lada Gaga's 2008 debut, The Fame, offered a mirthful mix of theatrical electronic disco and grand glam pop filled with snitty, pithy lyrics and coy vocals rich in cold soul. While Gaga, born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, had her hands in Fame's production, playing and songwriting, she's also a fashion maven with an eye toward wearing asymmetrical '80s tops, bodysuits instead of pants, and complementing her ensembles with an eyewear selection of disco-ball masks and TV-screen sunglasses.

You say you're rushing out Wednesday to get the new Rolling Stone when it goes on sale, to read about Gen. Stanley McChrystal dissing Veep Joe Biden . But we know what you'll really do: ogle Lady Gaga on the cover showing a lot of flesh (the weapons on her chest could kill), then turn to the Gaga story, titled "Tells All. " "Sex is certainly not, like, a priority at the moment," she, like, says.

L ADY GAGA HAS been booted from YouTube after her account was suspended yesterday. The notice read that the suspension was due to "multiple or severe violations of YouTube's copyright policy. " Who complained, Madonna ? The Google-owned YouTube declined to comment (but maybe someone could post a video commenting for YouTube). YouTube's policy is to remove accounts after three copyright violations, though they can be restored after being corrected. Reports have suggested that the infringing video was a recently uploaded clip of Gaga's performance on Fuji TV. The account, "ladygagaofficial," is one of two for Gaga and is run by Gaga's camp, which isn't really a camp except it involves a lot of athletic, young people who have fun. Gaga also has an unaffected Vevo account.

NEW YORK - Lady Gaga sold more than 1.1 million copies of her new album "Born This Way" and set a digital sales record last week - with an assist from Amazon.com. Billboard announced Tuesday that "Born This Way" debuted at No. 1 on its Billboard 200 album chart, becoming just the 17th album to sell a million copies in its first week since SoundScan started tracking sales in 1991 and the top-selling digital debut. The dance pop provocateur is just the fifth female with an album that sold more than a million copies in the SoundScan era. Lady Gaga's first No. 1 album sold the most copies of any debut since March 2005 when 50 Cent's "The Massacre" sold 1.14 million.

THE FUTURE is where we are headed, like it or not. And, generally, it's where we want to be. But sometimes it's nice to turn back the clock and remember how things were, say, between the end of World War II and the emergence of the Beatles. Back then, unlike today, show business was primarily for and by grown-ups. "Youth culture" meant kids playing with dolls or toy trucks. Every big city had at least one room where, late at night, adults could listen to sophisticated music as they ate, drank and smoked cigars and cigarettes.

NO ONE ever doubted that NBC's "The Tonight Show" would go big for Jimmy Fallon's first night. But U2-on-the-roof big? That was a cool stunt. Hypothermic even. Fallon was his charming, disarming "Late Night" self in a classy new setting, dancing with Will Smith, schmoozing with Bono. And while I'm still scratching my head over Kim Kardashian's appearance in the parade of celebs, from Robert De Niro to Lady Gaga, paying off a mock bet that Fallon would never host "Tonight," the bit paid off when Fallon's time-slot rival Stephen Colbert hauled in that bucket of pennies to "welcome" him to 11:30.

A hat with too many feathers, too many sequins, or too many ribbons is just too much drama. But the right chapeau? The perfectly perched little pillbox? That's the epitome of chic. So you can imagine how excited socialites-turned-entrepreneurs Chelsea Irwin and Natalie Mackey were two months ago when they stumbled upon boxes and boxes of vintage brimmed beauties. Not only was the sheer number of the trendy head-toppers gasp-worthy, the designer names made those fashionistas' hearts hum: Halston, Ralph Lauren, Chanel.

Lady Gaga is a mess. That's hardly an insult. Everyone loves a good mess. Lady Gaga knows. For Gaga - crafty songwriter and powerhouse singer - a holy mess is a fallback position. Even at her most focused, empowered, sexually driven, and aware, she can break down into schizophrenic absurdity (or downright awkwardness) - with matching costumes that make David Bowie seem buttoned-down. Now we have the new Gaga CD, titled ARTPOP (Interscope ***). ARTPOP makes a mess - then cleans it up, and just barely triumphs over the disarray.
