Not everybody loves the new Lady Gaga ft. Beyonce video for “Telephone” and so Gaga decided to try and explain how she and BeyBey set out to CHANGE THE WORLD. Pop the hood for Gaga’s take.
Gaga told L.A. radio station Power 106:
“The video in a lot of ways is more about her even than it is about me. It was sort of a pop-art venture for me to bring her into my world in a way, the video is an attempt for her and I to erase pop music as we know it up until this very point. It’s meant to change the perspective of the world on what a pop music video should be and she’s kind of the vehicle for that. In reality, more people around the world are familiar with her aesthetics than they are with mine. It was something for me to kind of change the way that you see her for one video.”
First of all — nobody is gonna erase pop music as we know it — that’d involve forgetting about Michael Jackson and we know that’s not happening. Second of all, it really seems like she’s trying to turn homosexuality into some revolutionary act. Why doesn’t she just say they were trying real hard to be different and she convinced Bey to let her bang that kitty out for entertainment?
