Lady Gaga released her most recent video (nearly 9 minutes long, of course) yesterday.
It. Is. Incredible. It’s equally as entertaining as its predecessor, ‘Telephone’ with Beyonce. But this latest offering is something altogether a cut above. It is a visual feast, nay – a visual orgy. I don’t think the story actually goes anywhere, but then again perhaps it’s not meant to. While the video might not be the video of the summer, I would say the song could well be. Until now I had never thought of Gaga as anything more than just another artist, albeit one that knew how to catch the eye. After this, I really have started to think maybe she could go on and on.
Also – could the woman cater to the LGBT audience any more? There are countless throw-backs to Madonna which shouldn’t need pointing out. But other less obvious nods include Cabaret, the Weimar Republic in general, men in stilettos (when they’re dancing all up on the beds), and correct me if I’m wrong but the Gag definitely seems to be working a very Isabella Blow-esque look in there too.
What a woman. And because she’s a Sacred Heart girl, my Mum loves her too.
