Lada Gaga and Beyonce ride in the Pussy Wagon

03.12.2010

The new video for Lady Gaga's song "Telephone" is movie-related only through its incorporation of an iconic KILL BILL prop and an obvious love of women-in-prison exploitation flicks, but on a slow Friday, that's close enough.

The tune itself is almost more hyper-produced electroglam than I can handle in a single serving, but there's something to be said for the hot-bodied pop queen's influences. "I mostly love the way [Quentin Tarantino] uses different forms to create something new," she tells E! Online. "His direct involvement in the video came from him lending me the Pussy Wagon. We were having lunch one day in Los Angeles and I was telling him about my concept for the video and he loved it so much he said, 'You gotta use the Pussy Wagon.'" 

The mini-movie (featuring Tyrese, many chicks and tons of glitter) comes from veteran music vid director Jonas Åkerlund, who also did Gaga's "Paparazzi" spot as well as the drug drama SPUN and the recent horror movie HORSEMEN.

Extra Tidbit: Gaga supposedly first went blond to avoid confusion with Amy Winehouse. That probably isn't going to be an issue ever again.

I like the song and video. But don't like the CG make-up.

I like this. But the CG airbrushing, IE CG "make up" to their faces, which is slowly replacing standard make-up in film I don't like, because it's too obvious- this may or may not have been done for effect. Nevertheless, I've seen it done before where it's not supposed to be noticed and you do and it looks weird. The other facial stutters and facial stretches are cool though.

I'm not a complete fan of this video, it is a little "far out" for me. But I love Lady GaGa and not afraid to admit it. When I hear her songs I hear substance, which is unlike what you hear from 99% of other pop female artists i.e. Britney. Unless she O.D.'s or something I think she's going to have a very long interesting career.

Its not so much about talent or how u can sing, music like movies is about entertainment, and Lady Gaga & even Katy Perry give dat up 100%, even Beyonce does.

Go Gaga

All the haters can suck it: this is nothing less than an incredible, beautiful, amazing work of pop-art. Those who fail to acknowledge Lady Gaga's talent as a performance artist - not to mention as a singer - are most unfortunate and are really missing out.

Lady Gaga's talented-- I like her music and I hate most pop music. But I miss when she was hot, she's too skinny now.

I personally didn't really like the song all that much but the video was awesome. I have a lot more respect for Lady Gaga than most pop queens and she's even got a handful of songs that are pretty good.

And as a musician myself, this is God given talent.

I love how people are saying she's hot, and can sing??? BULL SHIT, have you watched her live videos on youtube. She sounds like ass. She is fugly as well. She is only this "wierd" because she's so damn popular now. Her songs give me a headache.....really.

Ugh, ladygaga fails.

Hmmm...

I think LG bit Michael Jackson with the overall "movie style" of this video. Not saying that only Michael has done it, but this one feels a tad copycat.

With that said, out of all the pop stars within the last 5 years, LG is definately a fresh sound, or at least look. Beter than the Ooops I Shaved My Head chick.

But DAMN Beyonce made this watchable! That woman is crazy fine

I'll post a comment I read on Digg, that I feel summarizes my feelings about Lady Gaga and her music:

"Lady Gaga strikes me as a pretty talentless art student who was more book smart than creative. She can play a piano and sing well enough, but she substitutes desperately exaggerated seizures of post-modernism for actual creativity.

Her music is catchy sometimes but ultimately uninspired, and her outrageous outfits and videos serve only as a distraction from her otherwise mediocre sound

She'll be mostly forgotten in ten years much like many other former pop sensations of late."

Talent.

What is so refreshing about Lady Gaga is in addition to catchy songs, she can actually sing, and she has an exceptional eye for visual "pop". There is such wonderful subtly incorporated with the very original visuals, she far exceeds what Madonna used to try and do.

Gaga is just one of the many descendants of Shock Rock. Something that hasn't been shocking since the 70's but that's okay. The kids today haven't seen stuff like this before. Let them feel original. God knows it would be horrible to look into a back catalogue of real musicians and showmen.

My real problem is the music. Aside from an uninspired video that is far too over lit with shoddy editing. It's not very musical. Sure it gets stuck in your head but so does the Lamb Chops song that never

My real problem is the music. Aside from an uninspired video that is far too over lit with shoddy editing. It's not very musical. Sure it gets stuck in your head but so does the Lamb Chops song that never ends. Doesn't mean it's good. And this is definitely not good. If you want original dance music there is plenty of variety out there. Try Aphex Twin if you want original. It'll piss everyone else off as well, but it's not on the radio and he's not seen by everyone, but at least it's actually different and his videos are actually quite amazing. Gaga is just label sponsored artistry. Which can't be all bad... but... it's just not good and it's sad that this is all that people have to look at for art... so sad. Why can't they be excited or inspired by someone who can really push boundries.

Anyway, I guess the kids need to feel like they have to fight against something. A woman with cigarette glasses may as well be their icon. Because that's the sign of a true artist. True originality. Yup. Cigarette glasses. Just because it was thought up, doesn't mean it's a good idea.

She makes me think of Ghost World and the art class scenes. So phoney and desperate to be artistic that true artistry is just being shat upon. Oh well. Next Fad Please!

say what you will about GaGa but she knows how to be original and unpredictable and her vidz show for it and to all the people hating on the vid don't be mad you wasted 10 mins of your life watching Lady GaGa's new video that you won't get back ever again, youre just fools for already not liking her and watching the vid anyways just to complain about it and whine about wasting your time watching it. If you already hate an artist why keep paying them more attention!?

It's good to watch things you don't like. Three reasons.

1. To challenge yourself.
2. If you give it enough of a chance you might end up liking it.
3. Maybe you'll end up liking it.

And it's not about being original. Go to any major city and you'll see people like her every day. Maybe not wearing Danger tape, but original people. They just don't have the budget of her record label to make them popular by jamming stuff the listeners throat.

Hi, I'm Lady Gaga. I make and wear weird shit and then call it "high concept." If you don't like me, you must not "get me." There actually isn't much to get, honestly. I just make generic pop songs and pair that up with strange, completely unrelated imagery. Not that I paid for any of this. Did you see all that product placement? Suckers.

That soulless, stupid "song" really needed an expensive video 3x its actual length to make up for its musical craptasticness. This isn't even a music video per se (the "song" is sliced & diced up & basically just bg music) and Tarantino lost a bunch of cool points for contributing to this. The Pussy Wagon simply doesn't belong in this glammed-up, ridiculous, pointless piece of shit.
