“Telephone,” Lady Gaga & Beyonce

We need to talk about this NOW.

Personally I love it. The acting is pretty much terrible, and the product placement is garish and shameless, but god, it is epic.

Best Music Videos of 2009

Ever since Shots Ring Out.com decided to seriously drop the ball on their “best of” countdowns that they were so well known for, I’ve decided to compile a list of my own. So Merry Christmas, Googly Eyes. Here’s the only gift I know how to give: my impeccable taste in sound-specific imagery. Fucking impeccable.

“Bad Romance,” Lady Gaga

How is it possible that still no one has written about this video!? It’s fucking redonk!

So here’s Lady Gaga’s latest contribution to pop culture. With her increased popularity she’s obviously earned a bigger budget for music videos, and damn, she put it to use. The girl doesn’t disappoint, and I’m pretty sure the biggest reason that I like her is not for her music or her genuine vocal talent, but because she’s bat-shit crazy and has intentionally made herself out to be that way to create a unique and interesting image.

Instead of being cookie-cutter cute or sexy, she’s pushing the envelope and taking her insanity to new levels all the time; she’s unafraid to be ugly and weird and wear crazy (sorta scary) outfits that make her look  like a fish or a Snork or something.  She’s a celebrity worth watching because she’s actually doing interesting stuff, putting on a show, and entertaining people, albeit in a non-traditional way.

Blah blah blah I could go on forever about all this boring sociological stuff regarding celebrity and spectacle and fame etc. What I really want to talk about is how this video is the perfect googly eyes video. It features 1) modified twisting, 2) crazy dancing with cat-scratchy paws moves, 3) a buttload of wacky outfit changes, 4) nonsensical onomatopoeia lyrics in the chorus, and 5) some very googly eyes.

Now, please discuss.
