Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance

Filed under: Genius, Music, Performance, Sculpture, Shiny — norulesnoshame @ 20:01

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m a fan of whoever created the character that is Lady Gaga. Let’s be honest- musicians are boring. What are they doing, besides sleeping around, demanding fancy water and indulging in drugs? Nothing, really. Sure, Left Eye Lopez (RIP) burned down a house and R. Kelly had some kinky, illegally underaged activities, but overall, the world of music is kind of banal. Gaga, on the other hand, steals from the best of fashion, performance art and fine art to bring us a little bit of excitement in our quotidian lives. Thanks, Lady Gaga. Check out her new video for “Bad Romance”, directed by Francis Lawrence. Obviously influenced by Matthew Barney, Mark Ryden, and Alexander McQueen, the video is a loving homage. My favorite part is the bear rug dress… and the hairless cat. Also, if you look closely, at 4:25, I think there’s a fake white rat on her head.
