The amazing new supergroup of Lady Gaga and Beyonce have graced us with another highly anticipated video and again… I am less than impressed. I am a fan of both women individually. I love that Gaga is way over the top and Beyonce is somewhere in the middle.
I sat through the entire 9 minutes (yes, seriously 9) and I found myself wondering what the rough version of this video looked like.
Well if you love Lady Gaga’s non stop crazy gyrating and strutting around in stilettos… she doesn’t disappoint. She truly commits when she performs she definitely goes in I can’t deny that. I found the guards stripping her down to see if she has a wee wee totally hilarious. There was minimal girl on girl action but that always hot right? The video was directed by Jonas Akerlund but felt a little Tarantino-ish but not in a copycat way. I honestly would love to see Gaga in an actualy movie. The very brief appearance of Tyrese-looking at him is always hot to me! Also, if your a Beyonce can do no wrong kind of fan you will love this.
I love Beyonce, I truly do…. I just felt like her crazy isn’t equally matched with Lady Gaga’s. She kind of blended into the background to me next to Lady G. I was feeling like Thelma and Louise meets West Side story. The lyrics didn’t match what I was looking at and I was disappointed. I wanted to follow the ‘movie’ but I started feeling like music was interrupting it. On a side note:
I am in full support of women embracing their bodies; etc. But,certain things just certain be seen in public with 2 pieces on.
I think these two should retire future collabos unless they actually come up with a song together. Maybe a true blue collabo won’t come off like they were each copied and pasted into each others vision. However Video Phone is growing on me-maybe this will too?
