On the first night of the month-long iTunes Festival, Lady Gaga kicked things off with a bang, debuting seven brand new songs from her upcoming album 'ARTPOP'
Lady GaGa made an emoTIonal and surprise-filled return to the stage as she opened the month-long iTunes Festival at London's Roundhouse Theatre. Having been away from a live audience since she was forced to end her Monster's Ball tour early this year due to health concerns (bar her VMAs performance last month), the singer made sure she gave a performance to remember at the Camden venue.

The theatrical performance, complete with costume changes, dance routines and a host of new songs from her upcoming album ArtPop, seven to be precise. Dressed head to toe in black, Gaga emerged from the centre of the venue to perform her first new song, 'Aura,' before stripping down to her underwear for new song number two, the rockier 'Manicure,' which was accompanied by a storm of ticker tape falling on to the audience.

Rapper under the influence when pulled over by police
The rapper Too Short has reportedly been arrested on a DUI – seems to be a spate of them at the moment – with TMZ reporting that that the MC (real name Todd Anthony Shaw) was arrested in the early hours of this morning (March 20, 2013) and slapped with not just the DUI charge, but also a count of narcotics possession. Uh oh.
According to the website, Too Short was pulled over for an unspecified traffic incident, and it was bad news for Shaw that he appeared under the influence to the officials. There’s plenty more to this story too: apparently the rapper got pretty freaked out by the police and instead of complying with their requests for him to take a breathalyzer, he opted instead to take off and peg it. Not a good move for someone who was under suspicion for driving under the influence. It was a move made even worse as he reportedly tripped over in the street, his legs evidently not too short to not get tangled up on themselves.
Still not quite done with trying to dupe the police, even once they’d arrested him and put him in the back of their car, the rapper tried to leave his narcotics in the backseat as they took him out of the vehicle. Oh Shorty. And his eventual breathalyzer test? 0.9, just over the 0.8 limit.
