In the four-girl fight for pop dominance, Katy Perry is still the queen

Exactly 50 years ago, near the peak of the 1960s girl group craze, Lesley Gore rocketed to the top of the pop charts with the heartbreaking lyrics that made her a legend of sorts: “It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to, cry if I want to, cry if I want to. You would cry too if it happened to you.”

I can’t remember what she was crying about, but 50 years later in the midst of the 2013-14 pop music girl singer battle royale, it’s pretty clear girls don’t cry at parties anymore. They do other things. The opening chorus of the first single from the Miley Cyrus blockbuster Bangerz album lays down the gestalt of the modern female pop star: “It’s our party and we’ll screw who we want:” natpo.st/1bfUpLo

Lady Gaga’s flying dress is a metaphor for Lady Gaga, says Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga’s album sales are already stratospheric, so why not her evening wear?

The Applause singer unveiled a high-tech, white vehicle she bills as the world’s first flying dress. The contraption lifted her up inside a mammoth building at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where she held a launch party for her new album on Sunday.

The battery-powered dress has six booms in a hex formation.

The 27-year-old New York entertainer said later that this was “maybe a small step for Volantis” — as she calls the metal dress — but “a big-time step” for Lady Gaga: natpo.st/1akuqBM
