Plus, Kanye West and Iggy Azalea announce release dates, Justin Bieber is naked again and preview a Missy Elliott interview.
■ Lady Gaga and Diane Warren participated in a hour-long podcast with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss the music business and the sexual assaults they both suffered years ago, which lead to their recent collaboration titled “Till It Happens To You.”
“I was already Lady Gaga when it happened,” Gaga recalls of a darker time when she, at just 19, was sexually assaulted. “It was someone that I knew, and it was done to manipulate me in conjunction with money and my music, and it was terrifying.” She continues, “It’s something that changed me forever, and it made me question everything about what I had done to be where I am today. I thought to myself, ‘Did I do something wrong to bring this on myself? What did I do?'”
