Shortly after teasing the album with an Ariana Grande collaboration called "Rain on Me," Gaga has teamed up with mega-popular K-pop girl group BLACKPINK to share "Sour Candy," another clubby track from Chromatica. Its lyrics, switching between English and Korean, liken its singers to sour candy: ultimately sweet, but not without a little edge. "I might be messed up / But I know what's up / You want a real taste / At least I'm not a fake," Gaga sings over a bouncy bassline. "I'm hard on the outside but if you give me time / Then I could make time for your love."
"I wanted to celebrate [Blackpink] because they love powerful women like us, and they also wanted to celebrate me, and we had a great time together with this song," Gaga told Japanese website TV Groove about "Sour Candy." "I was excited to hear them interpret the song in Korean, and told them that the part was so creative and fun."

There's an entire genre of YouTube videos that consists of nothing but news bloopers, and they're equal parts hilarious and panic-inducing.
"Right after the break, we're going to interview Erik Weihenmayer, who climbed the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, but he's gay—I mean, he's gay, excuse me, he's blind."
Back in the early 2000's a young news anchor in New Mexico had a slip of the tongue on live TV that has enterred the annals of news blooper history.

Cynthia Izaguirre had just gotten done reporting on a separate story discussing activism for gay rights, and was setting up a segment with the first blind man to climb Mount Everest, and her thoughts got twisted on the way to her mouth, resulting in a 14-second clip that would live on in infamy.
