Or in other words, the way Madonna made them….inspired by me fanny, it looks like Gaga raided M’s wardrobe/dancers/back-catalogue and oh she did still one of her directors (again, Telephone was dir by Joan Aukerland of Ray of Light/Hung Up fame) with Mr. Steven Klein.
Took the words right out of my mouth Style!!!!! And whats with the french/italian accent at the beginning.
watching that video annoyed me!
Oh do like the boys hair…I’m going to get me some hair like that I think…..oh and a boy like that to please.
So what if she ripped off Madonna, everything’s derivitive of something else….saying that it’s not my fav song of hers
Oh Jasus there’s 8mins of my life I’ll never get back!!! Gaga and her contemporarys do my head in……it’s all sex, nudity and not about the music at all. She is out to hit the tabloids and knows she can’t do it with her music alone so has to try and give the shock factor. She is trying to be different yet by doing so she is the exact same as the rest of them. They are terrible role models for young girls and women, oh and she’s a shit singer!!! RANT OVER
Very Madonna-esque!! Its been done before so it bored me within 2 mins!
Love Gaga,Bad Romance was better video-wise and song-wise.In fact this is one of the weakest songs on her two discs.However,she’s still class!
Lest we forget Madonna’s ripping off of Marilyn Monroe for Material Girl?
It’s virtually impossible to be “creative” as an artist without the influence of past work. Everybody does it.
No not every body does it actually. Artists like M.I.A. Massive Attack, New Order are all fairly genuine and original. Having influences is fine. But that video has ”Like a Prayer” smeared all over it.
That link above is M.I.A.’s 2 cents on the whole thing. She says something like: ”Gaga isnt progressive”
Anyway she explains it better than me
A shit singer?? I think she’s an amazing vocalist! That’s one thing she certainly has over Madge, who could never really be described as a singer.
Just playing devils advocate here - could it not be said that every time somebody makes a music video with lots of sex / religious line crossing that they’ll be compared to Madonna?
snooze…after my initial giggle at the silly accent I sort of lost the will..pointless.
Awww i think its brill, shes quite daring & risque with all her vids, think its nice to see someone do something different!!
@ Pa & Stylebitch
Yes Madonna has been ‘infulenced’ and blatenly ripped off other artisits, Marylin and she was even sued for ‘referencing’ Guy Bourdin in her Hollywood video. And yes it’s true that Madonna has been around so long now, almost 30 years, that it’s very difficult as a female pop start not to reference her in your work, intentionally or not. However Gaga is being totally blatent here, even more so than X-tina in her comeback vid, that’s all I sayin really. I do like it though, Pa we need to take trip back to Whitechapel for some ’stentions, I need that hair!!! Sorry for hijackin with me waffelin. M x
look ahe’s good don’t get me wrong. She’s all pop….which Im not into. My friend saw her perform last year and said she put 110% into her performance…. I just dont think theres anything different or groundbreaking here
