Gaga’s Telephone Music Video is FINALLY here

12 Mar

The highly anticipated music video for Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s Telephone is finally here. I have to admit that after all of the hype, the video doesn’t really live up to all of my expectations. I love Gaga, but this video is slightly disappointing. One major letdown is the blatant use of product placement in the video (Virgin Mobile, Wonder bread, etc…).

Here's a still from Telephone, where Gaga poisons an entire diner.

The costuming was amazing like usual, except at one point we pretty much see Gaga naked. I know a plethora of people are probably happy with this, but let’s not forget Gaga still has a slew of underage fans. I guess it works in the context of the video, but I was still a little surprised at that particular (lack of) costuming choice.

All in all, good work on Gaga’s part as a co-writer, but the publicity stunt of a delayed release for perfectionist measures was a little much. Gaga’s work is rarely poor quality, and this video certainly isn’t terrible. I’m certain Gaga fans worldwide will love this video.

    I agree with the concerns of nudity in music videos. Working in a middle school you see this age level immediately emulate whatever they see on you tube or facebook. I have no doubt that I will be seeing yellow hair streaks and more revealing tops on 12 year olds as a result of this video and it’s acclaim. I’ve already heard too many “muffin” references to count since her hit poker face flooded the radio waves. From the mouth of babes.
