Lady Gaga's new music video for "Telephone" premiered late last night on E! and Vevo to millions of curious viewers. The vid, shot as a 9 1/2 minute short film, is a visually stunning schmorgasbord of sex, violence, and freaky fashion the likes of which could only be served up by Gaga.
"Telephone," (Or should I call it Telephone?) is a Tarantino/Thelma & Louise/lesbian prison gang homage co-starring Beyonce, Tyrese Gibson, the dudes from Semi Precious Weapons, and the Kill Bill Pussy Wagon. It's also a sequel to the video for "Paparazzi," and was directed by Jonas Akerlund, the same dude who put that particular piece of sparkly-shiny together with Gaga.
To call this video EPIC is an understatement. I mean, serioiusly. She uses the vid to address (and mock) those persistent rumors about her having a schlong. She wears a PIRATE HAT and serves deadly diner fare in Alexander McQueen heels. She does a particularly quirky impression of Axl Rose mid-trademark-effed-up-move-busting. For eff's sake, she plays a lesbian Greaser and makes out with a BUTCH LESBIAN PRISON DADDY in the first two minutes! This video puts the BALLS in AMAZEBALLS! But don't take my word for it. Feast your very own little monster eyeballs on this crazy wonderful business:
And just in case you never saw "Paparazzi," here's the new vid's prequel:
