It’s not called prostitution but the way they hustle this kinda track blows my mind.
Just found out Divide and Kreate did this.
I’m gonna ride the wave on this because I know, Gaga’s music might be way over the top at times, but her music videos have taken quite an interesting route.
At 2:08, Lady Gaga speaks in a German accent, and I am getting a bit of Soviet Union-esque vibe. Then pop up these men with the most odd haircuts, and after a while, a bit of Madonna-angles from Vogue as any music fan will notice. Some say an Ace of Base rip-off, but I don’t see it though. This music video, although initially can mask you with the dark and quality cinematography,
does not send a clear message.
I found a recent blog post courtesy of Procne that had an in-depth review of the video: Here’s what the blogger said:
The most obvious example of its commentary is the critique of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” (DADT) which is the military’s policy of ousting openly gay military members.
Well that clears that up. But my opinion remains unchanged. Sorry if I’m the Debbie Downer of this post, but she used to represent artistic drama with a good dose of theatricality. It seems now, she had embraced it too much and has lost quite the special spark that made a lot of us admire her.
I still look forward to her music when anything new comes a long, but hopefully, something like Just Dance, Paparazzi, or the highly laudable Poker Face will come out that will take our breaths away.
I got a wind of an unreleased track called Retro Physical about 5 months ago when I was linked to a Gaga forum but I never actually got a listen of the full track. Needless to say, First Up! got a leak of the track when Burim leaks the full version. I got to listen to it two times and it’s okay. Your thoughts?
Sia‘s new track, You’ve Changed, is a perky addition to her somber and dramatic hits (i.e. Breathe Me). Also something new from Britney Spears track – Infectious – produced by Polow da Don, The Bravery‘s The Spectator and Lady Gaga‘s I’m So Happy I Could Die. VV Brown does a Rolling Stones cover, tracks from Mt. Eden and Boys Noize AND YES – The Cold War Kids are BAAAACK. 🙂 Below is a video of Lady Gaga’s performance on AMA of Bad Romance/Speechless, Alicia Keys and Jay-Z’s Empire State of Mind (which was probably the best performance of the night, give or take) (credit).

Lady GaGa and Beyonce Knowles’ hook-up in an electro dance track called “Telephone” has hit the web. “Telephone” is not the only collaborative project between Lady GaGa and Beyonce Knowles. The two big stars also hit studio for a remix of Beyonce’s single “Video Phone”. Moreover, Lady GaGa will be seen appearing as Gee-yonce in its accompanying music video. 2009 is definitely Lady Gaga’s year all right. Thanks for the heads up!
BBC Radio 1 was graced by Lady Gaga and her crew as she perform some songs INCLUDING a cover of Coldplay hit Viva La Vida. The words may not have been entirely right but her quirky play with the lyrics- “Be my Chris, and I’ll be your Gwyneth” was a Gaga trademark.
