Lady Gaga talks price of fame, new album in Toronto

BT Toronto | posted Tuesday, Nov 19th, 2013

Lady Gaga was in Toronto on Monday to promote her third studio album ARTPOP and while she noted fame has its costs, they’re worth it.

“There are days where it’s more challenging to go out and be alone and have just sort of a quiet night with my family or my friends, but those are the sacrifices you make when you’re a performer,” Gaga told City.

“I just roll with the punches. It’s life.”

The first album single called Applause, focuses on the attention she has received in the five years since her debut album was released. In the song, Lady Gaga sings that she lives for the applause and attention.

ARTPOP is really a celebration of…surviving for the past five years. I never changed who I was or when people wanted me to change, I just kept being me. And here we are,” she said.

Lady Gaga signed autographs and met with fans at a private event on Monday night and was later presented with a plaque celebrating ARTPOP’s success. The album was certified platinum in Canada after selling 80,000.

Frankie Flowers: Bulb planting tips for the fall

BT Toronto | posted Thursday, Oct 17th, 2013

Flowering bulbs are a spring tradition. Nothing says winter’s over like cheerful snowdrops and daffodils pushing their way through the snow and earth.

Frank Ferragine shared his best tips and tricks to make sure your tulips, daffodils, and other bulbs give their all for your spring display!

Here are some of Frankie’s top bulbs to plant:

1. Princess Irene tulip

These large, fragrant orange blooms feature a red flame that resembles a maple leaf trailing up the centre. They were bred by the Dutch to thank Canada for helping liberate the Netherlands during the Second World War.

Requirements: Full sun. Zones 3 to 8.

2. King Alfred daffodil

The largest of all trumpet daffodils, the King Alfred is also squirrel and rabbit-resistant, as daffodils are poisonous to them.

Requirements: Full sun to part shade. Zones 3 to 9. Daffodils are the best bloom for your buck!  Perennials and great for naturalization!

3. Allium giganteum

Also known as an ornamental onion, this perennial is a particular favourite of bees.

Requirements: Full sun. Zones 6 to 9. Repel aphids in the veggie garden!

4. Crown Imperial ‘Rubra Ma xima’

This traffic-stopping perennial has tall stems, bright red blooms and a tuft of crown-like foliage. The stinky bulb repels squirrels and deer.

Requirements: Full sun. Zones 5 to 9. My yak-factor plant!

5. Giant Dutch crocus mix

Plump, colourful crocuses are the first bulbs to flower in spring – even when snow is still on the ground.

Requirements: Full sun. Zones 3 to 8. Grow them in your lawn, crocus bloom, and finish their life cycle early even before you have to cut your lawn!
