I just watched the new Lady Gaga video, "Telephone". If you didn't think I was a fan before, now you can consider me a disciple.
Here is the video. OMGaga! I will list the things I love. As you watch you can make your own list! Share with me!
*"Prison for Bitches"-please, please tell me this is a reference to "Caged Heat". Please.
*Punk rock black nipple tape
*CIGARETTE SMOKING SUNGLASSES-who made these? I will make some. With candy cigarettes.
*Chola lipliner-dark lipliner and light lipstick, must try!
*Diet Coke can hair styling--homage to the orange juice curling method of the 1950's? Could be my brain going overboard but I'm hoping that whomever had that idea was thinking about the classic young adult novel "Go Ask Alice", about one of those bad girls. Ohhh, bad!
*Prison bitch dance party
*white nail polish
*Lady Gaga busts out a moderated Michael Jackson dance move homage as she leaves prison
*Beyonce admonishing Gaga! "A very, very very bad girl, GAGA!" I love seeing Beyonce as this sassy woman. About time!
*The Pussy Wagon returns!
*Gaga's blue retro phone hat--futuristic and retro at the same time
*Beyonce's America flag pinup dress--she's always flawless, but this time she's actually hot
*Crazy one piece Halston-y hat'n'dresses. When one thinks of Halston flowy-ness, one should always sing triumphant with poison. I shouldn't even have to write that out.
I would like to take a moment to thank whoever the genius is that styles Lady Gaga. SO GOOD. I love the bright colors, no joke, but I adore how referential and clever this stuff is. Hair phone? Sculptural hair seems so retro, but so does a phone, you know? You can't escape if it's attached to your head. UGH.
I sent this email to Jenn and Kim:
"THE NEW GAGA VIDEO IS TOTALLY THE STORY OF OUR LIVES
sERIOUSLY I CANNOT DEAL
CIGARETTE SMOKING SUNGLASSES
I have loved before, surely, but never have I been so inspired and excited and GIDDY about a pop star. I don't know how much of it is Lady Gaga or her team or whatEVER. I don't care. Gaga's the real deal, making herself a hero that's just as at home on the cover of Cosmo as in a heart shaped frame on my desk. She can write, she can play, she can provoke and create discussion.
That's my LADY.
