Lady Gaga

In Lady Gaga, Music on 03/15/2010 at 11:22 am

Lady Gaga’s latest song Telephone featuring Beyonce was probably one of the best/bizarre music videos I have ever seen. Based on Lady Gaga’s fear of suffocation she wrote a song about how she’d rather be on the dance floor than talk to her boyfriend on the telephone… kind of weird, but overall the whole song works. Amongst the oddities featured in this video you can tell a lot of big or failing companies put their hand in this video as I’m sure they knew it’d be watched by millions over and over again. Virgin Mobile, Wonderbread, Diet Coke, Miracle Whip, and Polaroid (which Lady Gaga is Creative Director for a Specialty Line) were featured continuously throughout the video either hoping to gain more popularity or to continue their familiarity with the younger generations.

When I first saw Just Dance, which was released in the summer of 2008 I thought her choice of sunglasses were amazing/ridiculous… but when I saw her choice for Telephone she brought my definition of ‘amazing/ridiculous’ to an entirely new level. Half smoked cigarette sunglasses came out of no where as she walked into exercise  yard… I’m still not exactly sure what the hell they mean… or if they mean anything at all.

I’m excited for the possibility of an extreme fashion movement due to the choices Lady Gaga makes in her music videos. I really hope to see a rise in popularity of men wearing makeup, hats, unnecessarily bizarre sunglasses, and… well maybe not platformed shoes, I still have an image of all the losers in second grade trying to look like Posh Spice… it’s such a 90’s thing.
