Lady Gaga Loses Her Top, Jay Z Calls Up The Boss, Kanye’s CoinYe Coming Soon?
Freezing Friday. If you’re in the Northeast, then you realize it’s freezing cold, so why not get things started with some sizzling photos of Lady Gaga going topless? Someone that loves going topless is Rick Ross and he almost did thanks to Jay Z. Another great friend of Jigga is Kanye West, but could he be cashing in on some CoinYe soon? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Hey Lady
Lady Gaga doesn’t win everyone over, especially with how often her look seems to change but something about LG being topless and posing for Versace just sounds right. Her appeal is only growing, especially after dropping a pretty stellar album last November. Rap-Up has the shot:
Lady Gaga is baring her breasts for fashion. The pop diva goes topless in her latest ad for Versace’s spring campaign. The “Do What U Want” singer reclines on a sofa, covering her chest with chains and her long blonde hair.
“Happy New Years from HAUS OF GAGA and @Versace!” tweeted Gaga, who named a song after Italian designer Donatella Versace on ARTPOP.
“I am honored that my friend Lady Gaga is the face of our new Versace campaign,” Donatella told Vogue. “I wanted to capture her true beauty and spirit in images that are elegant and alluring. She is like family to me, the embodiment of the Versace DNA.”
The ads were shot in London by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. (Rap-Up)
Is Lady Gaga bigger than Miley Cyrus or even Beyoncé? She’s not really R&B and she’s not so much only-pop, so does she stand in her own lane? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. You Know They Got It
Even though Jay Z and Kanye West make some great music together, there’s something special about Rick Ross and Jay hooking up for tracks. They have such a strong chemistry Jay made sure to capitalize off of that during a concert last night. Complex has the info:
Jay Z’s MCHG Tour stopped through Sunrise, Florida tonight and Hova brought out the boss himself Rick Ross to perform their single “FuckWitMeYouKnowIGotIt.” Hopefully a video for this song and their other buzzing single “The Devil Is A Lie” (from Rick Ross’ upcoming album) will get videos very soon. (Complex)
Is there any chance we’re going to hear a Rick Ross/Jay Z album in the future? They keep hitting home runs every time they lay down some new verses. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Gold Digger
Is CoinYe really going to pop off? There seems to be this popular online trend where virtual money actually holds some serious weight. It’s a bit complicated but with that being said, Kanye West’s name is written all over some “CoinYe” currensy. Noisey is up on it:
Launching January 11 with the catchphrase “WE AIN’T MININ’, WE PICKIN’”, the system promises “no premine, no screwed up fake “fair” launches, shyster devs, muted channels, and f**ked up wallets”. Just like Kanye West, CoinYe West won’t be taking any sh*t. Alongside the website design, there are some more technical nods to Kanye’s supposed illuminati connections. The maximum number of coins that can ever be mined in the currency is 66,666,666,666. It seems members of the influential forum Bitcointalk.org, a place where discussion of online currencies often leads to their fluctuating prices, aren’t so sure.
Pitstop notes, “U must be F***ing Joking? Naming a coin after an illuminati wanna-be because you can include the word coin in the name!! Kinda goes against what Alt’s [alternative currencies] are about!!”
While noobyonekenobi quickly adheres to Godwin’s Law offering, “Whats next HitlerCoin(HTC)?” before adding “sounds good though lol”.
The currency is not co-signed by Kanye but it seems the CoinYe West founders are seeking his approval. They tweeted at him last week, clearly unaware of the omnipresent amount of mentions a self-proclaimed God receives. (Noisey)
Can this really pop off? Even more important, is Kanye West going to co-sign this or take some serious action in response? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
