Remember back in the day when Madonna’s “Erotica” video was too hot for broadcast because it featured same-sex kissing (among other things)? TV stations decided to air it only once at midnight and there was a big hype leading up the premiere, so me and my babysitter stayed up late to watch it. Thanks to the Internet, nothing is too hot for anything anymore, but despite this fact, Lady Gaga waited until 11:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time to premiere her nine-minute long Tarantino homage “Telephone” co-starring Beyonce.
Three things: 1) There is way more blatant product placement in this one than there was in “Bad Romance”. 2) The Chola Girl prison make-up is pretty fun. 3) I was really hoping for a fight scene where Gaga and Beyonce beat the shit out of each other. Gaga needs to do like Toni Braxton and line-up Vivica for the next one.
