Watched the video last night. It's only okay. My friend Dan is furious that she has Gism and Doom on her coat, because she most likely has no idea whom either of them are. That's what you get for having Jonas Åkerlund direct pop videos, I guess.

I don't like how they kept breaking the song up in awkward places. It just sort of fell flat to me. I like her Paparazzi video, but this? Eh. It was alright. I liked scenes, like the jail and when she was poisoning the food. It just felt rather....indulgent?

Though i will say, props to the Lady for showing her vagina like a boss in the prison scene. She's ballsy, (no pun intended), and i like that about her. And i'm glad she once and for all put those ridiculous rumours about her having a dick to rest, because i always found that to be outrageous.

I hate this video with a passion, it is just bad. It made no sense, it was a dumb concept, it had nothing to do at all with the rather descriptive song lyrics, and it was a giant fucking commercial.

You'll do better with this

I love how blatantly queer the video is! I think it's pretty fabulous all around, but I do get why other people aren't that into it.

The parody is pretty funny though. *giggles*

I was so disappointed. Full of stupidly obvious product placement (there's an article about that itself somewhere but I forget where), bad acting, a dumb storyline...all set to a horrifyingly weak song.
I WAS SOBBING ON THE INSIDE.

I really didn't like it that much. Lady Gaga's made much better videos, and I totally get that this video is probably the furthest thing from being entirely serious, but it's really not my cup of tea. I'd rather watch the Bad Romance, Paparazzi, or Beautiful/Dirty/Rich video any day.

I have no problem with people liking it though. :)

Is it sad that I've seen the video posted on here before the actual Telephone video?

Acutally, I've never seen the full Telephone video. Just part of it.

Ever wonder how the U.S. military is trying to win over the hearts of
the locals in places like Iraq & Afghanistan?

(Also, I notice some thematic similarity between this and the song now known as Modern Moonlight.)

It was better than Video Phone, I can say that much.

Aside from that, the dancing was eh, and Beyonce's acting was painful at best.  As usual.  The only thing that kept me watching were the outfits.  I love her eccentric style.




Well, I think that was a good, a music video of Lady Gaga and Beyonce, that was an exciting music video for them. Yeah, I want to see the outfit of Lady Gaga.
