fripodding and gagaing: “bad romance” lady gaga


I’ve been away awhile, and since I’ve been gone I’ve collected quite a lot of music. So I’ll pick something from the tops of the charts a la Gaga. Like the people over at Entertainment Weekly, I had to watch this video numerous times. First, figuring out what was going on… then because it was so visually stimulating… then I started liking the song… or the video… I don’t know which came first but before I knew it, by the end of the week, the video was on my iPod.

I’m not going to lie. I enjoy seeing scantily clad women from time to time dancing to some good hypnotic music. I’m a guy who loves women in general. The only thing I did not like in this video was the hideous grotesque reptilian outfit Gaga wears midway through the video. Kudos and accolades for her eccentric and original styles, but that green alien look is off-putting and sets off a gag reflex. But hey, she’s wearing it, not me. I just look away and wait patiently for the “bedroom scene.” Honestly, I love the “diamond scene” because of that Matrix-esque vide it has… even though it isn’t like that at all (trick photography). I also think she looks the most beautiful in the close-up scenes when she’s crying.

And in case you were wondering if this video has a point or if there’s a story and you are missing it, from what I gather, the Lady was kidnapped, kinda drugged and then forced to be sold as a pleasure slave of sorts. The Lady has other plans by the end of the video and it’s really too bad… for the guy that bought her. As for the song’s meaning: basically she wants all your love, all the good things about you, and the bad things about you, even if it’s really bad, she still wants it. So you better give it or you might end up like the dude that bought her.

    Wow – yeah – captivating video. End scene is pretty weird. Yes, I like the diamond matrix scene best too and the following diamond outfit. Cheers!

  3. She’s talked about the concept behind her latest album (The Fame Monster) and the video is an excellent manifestation of that concept. It’s all about personal monsters — the things that haunt her, the things she fears. So all of the music, videos, fashion, and performance is informed by all things “monster.” You’ll notice that at the beginning of the video the monsters are born out of their pods. In the dance, they make those “monster hands” (reminiscent of MJ’s Thriller dance). Once you know that it’s all monster-inspired, the work coming out of this album makes a lot more sense, particularly her performance at the AMAs (and if you haven’t seen that, do check it out on YouTube).

    The first time I saw this, I went crazy over her rhinestone/diamond sparkly dance outfit, the one she has on under the trench coat. I’d love to have an outfit like that! And yes, I would find someplace to wear it — like a Lady GaGa concert (heheh).

      I did read that too, the story behind the concept of the album. I couldn’t remember where I read it and if I could I would’ve linked it. It was probably Song Facts or something. Anyway, the dancing alone is one of the very reasons I enjoyed this video. And you best believe I saw the AMA performance. I didn’t want to risk posting it since it kept getting taken down (maybe they stopped now). But it was indeed awesome.

      I think the only places you could wear anything she wears is at her concerts, fashion shows, and award shows. Her attire doesn’t seem like something you throw on to run to the store for milk. I mean… you could. But I think if you went with the orbit suit, you might not fit through the sliding door.

  4. […] view the video posted in the article until I was at my own PC. Due to the fact that the “Bad Romance” video was the key factor that finally flipped me into a Gaga fan, I felt the need to check […]
