I SWING BY AUNT MAY's
FOR A SHOWER AND A
BITE, MOST NATURAL
THING IN THE WORLD,
ASSUMING SHE'S
NOT HOME...

...AND I
FIND HER IN BED
WITH MY
FATHER, AND THE
TWO OF THEM
ARE...ARE...

...AAAAAAAAUUUUGH!

Everyone's favorite hipster atheist "avant-guard" ironically iconoclastic singer, Lady Gaga, has released a new video.

Try and catch the references to:
-Command and Conquer
-Star Wars
-Queer Eye for the Straight guy
-Sweden
-DOOM
-Wonder Woman
-Tarantino
-Plentyoffish.com
-Michael Jackson
-Dune
-American Foreign Policy of killing everyone and instilling traditional American values often involving the flag
-Porn Stars


It's very NWS NWS and this thread will probably have NWS discussion.






BEFORE YOU WATCH, here's the lyrics, and try to envision what you THINK the song is about :


[Lady Gaga]
Hello, hello, baby
You called, I can't hear a thing.
I have got no service
in the club, you say, say
Wha-Wha-What did you say, huh?
You're breaking up on me
Sorry, I cannot hear you,
I'm kinda busy.

K-kinda busy
K-kinda busy
Sorry, I cannot hear you, I'm kinda busy.

Just a second,
It's my favorite song they're gonna play
And I cannot text you with
A drink in my hand, eh?
You shoulda made some plans with me,
You knew that I was free.
And now you won't stop calling me;
I'm kinda busy.

[Chorus]
Stop callin', stop callin',
I don't wanna think anymore!
I left my head and my heart on the dance floor.
Stop callin'', stop callin,
I don't wanna talk anymore!
I left my head and my heart on the dance floor.

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh
Stop telephonin' me!
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh
I'm busy!
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh
Stop telephonin' me!
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh

Can call all you want,
but there's no one home,
and you're not gonna reach my telephone!
Cuz I'm out in the club,
and I'm sippin that bubb,
and you're not gonna reach my telephone!


[Beyonce]
Boy, the way you blowin' up my phone
won't make me leave no faster.
Put my coat on faster,
leave my girls no faster.
I shoulda left my phone at home,
cuz this is a disaster!
Callin' like a collector -
sorry, I cannot answer!

Not that I don't like you,
I'm just at a party.
And I am sick and tired
of my phone r-ringing.
Sometimes I feel like
I live in Grand Central Station.
Tonight I'm not takin no calls,
cause I'll be dancin.

Cause I'll be dancin
Cause I'll be dancin
Tonight I'm not takin no calls, cause I'll be dancin!

[Chorus]

My telephone!
M-m-my telephone!
Cuz I'm out in the club,
and I'm sippin' that bubb,
and you're not gonna reach my telephone!

We're sorry the number you have reached is not in service at this time.
Please check the number, or try your call again.

-----





Now then, I personally thought it was about being called on her cell at a club.

Here's what Gaga apparently was really singing about :

And the making of video:

Tiberium - C&C http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiberium


I can honestly say lesbian prison surprise sex wasn't on my mind when I heard it.

Nor Beyonce killing her boyfriend.

Or the beercan hair. Which is the least weird thing.

Or the random '80s camera rewind-stuttering back and forth near the end.

Or the intermittent censorship.

Did anyone really expect any of that?


What what what what what

This video has a man phoning a cabbage...with dedication.

Disgusting American decadence.



And a few avatars for anyone who wants some, I think the first is hilarious. If anyone wants them shrunk or other scenes, PM me and I'll do my best.

























Edit: Apparently the amount of gifs across the net from this video crashed the kimag imageservers. This'll take a while to fix.

BOP THE STOATS

I imagine an ironic version of hell would be tied to a chair in a bright white square room with Lady Gaga trying on an infinte amount of wacky outfits from her wardrobe, dancing an infinite number of hypnotic dances, while singing a constant and infinite barrage of catchy pop songs with lyrics about the most mundane poo poo you could imagine. You look around, but sadly there is no lesbian prison surprise sex as promised, only your eternal suffering.

I think this is my problem with her.

If she took 1/10th of the focus she puts on wardrobe (which is painfully un-edgy) and put it on taking some chances with her music I think I might be more impressed. And she's talented enough to do it, too.

Why would she take chances? She's been around writing chart-topping songs for other people for a lot longer than she's been doing them herself, she knows exactly what she's doing to become rich and famous as gently caress.

And it's working.

Because her music is going from catchy and sort of interesting (Poker Face, Lovegame) to banal, lovely 90s throwbacks (Bad Romance, this one) in a hurry. Her songwriting was pretty good and her bridges were always the most interesting part of her tunes anyway.

Now her writing's on a serious downturn because she's spending infinitely more time on the bullshit surrounding the tunes than the 5 minutes she took to write the tunes themselves. And it's sad.

Because people think she's avant-garde and exciting. These are the type of people who have never stepped into an art gallery in their lives and wouldn't know forward-looking art if it punched them in the face.

Lady Gaga is avant-garde lite, if you will. Strong enough for pop culture but made for celebrity.

It was pretty rhythmically tight. Much more so than most other pop stuff out there. Again, the bridge is probably the best part.
