Girl's rendition of 'Born This Way' makes Gaga cry

Have you heard Maria Aragon sing yet? If you haven't, you should check out the 10-year-old's rendition of Lady Gaga's new single "Born This Way."

It's so good, in fact, that it made Gaga tear up with emotion. She tweeted: "Can't stop crying watching this. This is why I make music. She is the future."

But the story doesn't end there. Maria got the chance to chat with the pop star when Gaga called in to Toronto's Virgin Radio 99.9.

Brad tours America on 'The Bachelor'

Last night's episode of "The Bachelor" was the traditional "hometown date" show, where Brad headed to the hometowns of the four remaining contestants to meet their families and learn more about them. Hopefully Brad brought his frequent flyer card to the festivities.

Our first stop was Seattle, where Brad caught up with Chantal, who said her parents are "great judges of character," so it was crucial for them to give her the go-ahead to be with Brad. Are they also great judges of her slap-happy antics on the show?

Brad and Chantal headed to her parents' home, which appeared to double as stately Wayne Manor on "Batman." I half-expected their basement to also serve as the Batcave. Brad told the potential in-laws about Chantal slapping him on national TV, and the family seemed to enjoy that anecdote, which was quite disturbing.

Mackenzie Phillips: My family has abandoned me

After detailing her 10-year sexual relationship with her father in the 2009 tell-all "High on Arrival," Mackenzie Phillips says she has been abandoned by her famous family.

Mackenzie, whose dad was rock legend John Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas, told the "Today" show's Meredith Vieira that she has encountered a dramatic backlash since telling her story, including being cut off by her former step-mom Michelle Phillips and her step-sisters, singer Chynna and actress Bijou.

"They've all known about it for years, so the family members that come forward and say this isn't true and she's crazy are a textbook case of the way a family reacts to incest within the family," Mackenzie said on "Today" Tuesday morning. "It's been really hard. It's been really hard to not have my sisters and my brothers and my 'wicked ex-stepmother,' with whom I've been really close over the years. But to have them basically just say, 'That's it! We're done with you…'"

Kanye and Hype Williams turn on 'All of the Lights'

Kanye and Hype Williams turn on 'All of the Lights'

It's not the first time Kanye West has linked up with Hype Williams, but it might be the duo's most confusing collaboration.

Over the weekend, West released the video for “All of the Lights,” the fourth single off his critical and commercial darling, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.”

Unlike their past projects (“Diamonds From Sierra Leone,” “Gold Digger”) West and Williams’ “All of the Lights” hit MTV without much hype. Blame it on the fact that it was NBA All-Star Weekend or that West reportedly got an invite to the Royal Wedding over President Obama – whatever the cause, the video quietly slipped into rotation.
