Lady Gaga has found herself with more time on her hands than usual. The icon recently suffered a hip injury, causing her schedule to open up quite a bit. While she is struggling to handle the canceling of her Born This Way Ball tour, she also has some exciting projects underway. Hopefully she can forget about her hip for a day and focus on all of the great things she has going on! Let’s see what Mother Monster has to celebrate.

Lady Gaga Is Working On A New Album

The star may have been focused on her tour, but she was also working hard on a new album! There is no release date set for her next album, ARTPOP, but we can’t wait! She revealed to Rolling Stone that she’s already written around 50 tracks. Knowing Gaga, her new stuff is bound to top the charts.

The “Born This Way” singer is also working on an ARTPOP documentary with famed photographer Terry Richardson.

Lady Gaga Asked To Join The X Factor

Lady Gaga could replace Britney Spears on the third season of The X FactorSimon Cowellhas reportedly asked her to join the celeb-filled panel. A source close to The X Factor creator told HollywoodLife “She has time on her hands, which was once not available. Simon is reaching out to her in full force and looking to do anything he can for her to be a judge.”

Lady Gaga Needs Surgery

Her Born This Way Ball tour was cut short due to a severe hip injury. Poor Gaga! The singer needs to take time off in order to undergo surgery and a safe recovery. Hopefully she will see this time as a well-deserved break from all her hard work this year! Even pop stars have to slow down sometimes, right? We know her little monsters are behind her 100% and wish her a speedy recovery!

Happy Birthday: Mariah Carey, Jessie J and Fergie !

Mariah Carey turns 43 years old today, but don’t bother getting the music legend any gifts. One, she can and will buy herself plenty with her massive fortune.

Two, she already has the best presents of all: A loving, adoring husband in Nick Cannon and two beautiful twins! Who are about to turn two next month!

Life is good for the singer these days (and Nick, apparently):

What does the professional future hold for Mariah? Beyond beefing with Nicki Minaj on American Idol? Who can say. But she’s already made her mark on history.

We wish her the best in her career and personal life today and every day, and encourage you to leave your b-day greetings for the superstar in the comments.

Also celebrating birthdays today: Jessie J (25), Brenda Song (25), Fergie (38), Nathan Fillion (42), Elizabeth Mitchell (43) and Quentin Tarantino (50).

Steve Jobs' 58th birthday: 10 products that defined Jobs' career

Steve Jobs, the Apple founder and former CEO who invented and masterfully marketed ever-sleeker gadgets that transformed everyday technology, from the personal computer to the iPod and iPhone, was born on February 24, 1955. Steve Jobs had no formal schooling in engineering, yet he’s listed as the inventor or co-inventor on more than 300 US patents. These are some of the significant products that were created under his direction:

Apple’s first product was a computer for hobbyists and engineers, made in small numbers. Steve Wozniak designed it, while Jobs orchestrated the funding and handled the marketing.

One of the first successful personal computers, the Apple II was designed as a mass-market product rather than something for engineers or enthusiasts. It was still largely Wozniak’s design. Several upgrades for the model followed, and the product line continued until 1993.

Jobs’ visit to Xerox Corp.’s research center in Palo Alto inspired him to start work on the first commercial computer with a graphical user interface, with icons, windows and a cursor controlled by a mouse. It was the foundation for today’s computer interfaces, but the Lisa was too expensive to be a commercial success.

Like the Lisa, the Macintosh had a graphical user interface. It was also cheaper and faster and had the backing of a large advertising campaign behind it. People soon realized how useful the graphical interface was for design. That led “desktop publishing,” accomplished with a Mac coupled to a laser printer, to soon become a sales driver.

After being forced out of Apple, Jobs started a company that built a powerful workstation computer. The company was never able to sell large numbers, but the computer was influential: The world’s first Web browser was created on one. Its software also lives on as the basis for today’s Macintosh and iPhone operating system.

When Jobs returned to Apple in 1996, the company was foundering, with an ever shrinking share of the PC market. The radical iMac was the first step in reversing the slide. It was strikingly designed as a bubble of blue plastic that enclosed both the monitor and the computer. Easy to set up, it captured the imagination just as people across the world were having their eyes opened to the benefits of the Internet and considering getting their first home computer.

It wasn’t the first digital music player with a hard drive, but it was the first successful one. Apple’s expansion into portable electronics has had vast ramifications. The iPod’s success prepared the way for the iTunes music store and the iPhone.

Before the iTunes store, buying digital music was a hassle, making piracy the more popular option. The store simplified the process and brought together tracks from all the major labels. The store became the largest music retailer in the US in 2008.

The iPhone did for the phone experience what the Macintosh did for personal computing – it made the power of a smartphone easy to harness. Apple is now the world’s most profitable maker of phones, and the influence of the iPhone is evident in all smartphones.

Dozens of companies, including Apple, had created tablet computers before the iPad, but none caught on. The iPad finally cracked the code, creating a whole new category of computer practically by itself.
