Stefani Germanotta just killed us a little.

Germanotta, aka Lady Gaga, plans to release streams of songs off her new album, Born This Way, via a new online game, GagaVille, made by S.F. firm Zynga, of FarmVille fame.

You will have to compete to pretend to farm shit on your computer to hear these songs. The entire embarrassing ordeal will last from May 17 to 19.

Speaketh the Gaga: "I want to celebrate and share Born This Way with my little monsters in a special way that's never been done before. ... Zynga has created a magical place in FarmVille where my fans can come play and be the first to listen to the album."

UghdearGodpleasesayitain'tso.

Why?

Because it's FarmVille.

Why?

Read our story from last year on the S.F. firm Zynga, maker of FarmVille and GagaVille.

But really: Why, Stefani, why? Aren't you, like, famous enough?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
