Bad Romance


Today's outfit consists of a classic sequin sweater and jeans that "look like a cloudy day" according to a good friend of mine. I took it as a compliment, these jeans were incredibly fun to bleach.

So, I know the whole blogosphere is freaking out about Lady Gaga's new video for "Bad Romance" and I have to say, I'm freaking out right along with everyone else. The McQueen! The razorblade sunglasses! Lady Gaga truly exists in a theatre of the ridiculously absurd. She is an entertaining spectacle to behold and to some extent, live vicariouly through. Perhaps in an alternate universe, I could serve as one of her backup dancers in a white PVC catsuit?

Why oh why did I not go see her live when I had the chance?

That video is completely insane. Oh my god. There is something oddly mesmerizing about the whole thing, particularly her voice and the weird way her hand keeps twitching!

Yeah, sequins!!!!!!

No one else needs to bother making a music video ever again, seriously. They will never top this one. I can't believe i get to see Gaga live in a few weeks! Ahhhh

Your outfit is cute. Your friend's description "cloudy day" is superb.

Regarding Lady Gaga: this video really points out The Elite in a very unappealing light. I don't have anything against her, she's talented. But I think she's obviously financially backed and directed by elitists flaunting their agenda in our faces.

The video keeps playing in my head on repeat! It takes all my strength to not burst into song and dance in public.

the video is indeed hypnotic, but i still feel kind of iffy about madame gaga. i kind of hate how her whole schick is sex - like, ok, well done, I'VE NEVER SEEN THAT BEFORE. sheesh. i appreciate the aesthetic universe she has created for herself, but i'm not sure i like its foundations. interestingly enough she seems like a genuinely clever person. moo. i am undecided.

the video is OUT OF THIS WORLD.

i currently live in ottawa, but i come from a place where the population is 300, including cattle :/ so now living in such a conservative town has been quite the adaptation process for me ^^

I've yet to dislike one of her songs...

Lady Gaga may be one of the most committed, extreme people ever. She has an idea and somehow manages to push it further and further and further. It's really impressive.

Also, great work on the jeans, I love reworked stuff like that.

I meant to comment on this the other day but I had to rush out and couldn't do so!

YAY GAGA!! :D I am ridiculous about her. I just love that she exists.
