lady gaga's new 'madre monstere'? (edit: scheiße)
let's be clear, i could not give 2 fucks about lady gaga. i just want to take an early opportunity to say that this style, even melody, of song is nothing new, and i will fret so much when comes out on her next album and everyone is all "oh em gee, once again queen gaga is pushing the boundaries of music, lol send text." if she was really trying to come off as a genuine artist, she would collaborate with the people who do heavy industrial house music and work to make it more accessible to her fans/dumb americans without taking out any integrity to either parties' work. instead she borrows, makes it droll and uninteresting to anyone with a good ear, and will most likely push it off as something so different and unusual (as demonstrated by this video).
if you've ever been to a fashion show or just watched one on youtube, you would know that this sort of song is really really average. not to mention that the skeleton tattooed guy is a ploy to overcompensate for the designer's work (which is why i haven't mentioned anything about the designer or why the video was made). I have nothing against the skeleman, he looks pretty cool and works those pearls really well in the video.
of course, the song is supposed to be different when it comes out and it probably won't be all straight-from-the-runway, but i am dreading the fluff to come about this and probably a few of her other upcoming songs. also, don't get me wrong. i would love to hear this on the radio if i ever have to listen to the radio. it's just nothing to gawk at.
footnote: i looked over to see that the princess diaries is on and noticed that even though there are loud speakers yelling at people in multiple languages to stay off of the grass, the grass itself has some huge patches of brown and isn't even that great. perhaps that is the joke, no?
