Don't Call My Name



She strikes again. Not her best, but I love the Alejandro video.


Aesthetically it's raw and edgy, Gaga's made a clear effort to stay clear of the polished and glamorous. It's dark and dystopian, like if Tim Burton merged Edward Scissorhands and Lemony Snicket's A Serious of Unfortunate Events, with Evita and
a Madonna tribute act.


Even with breath-taking Haus of Gaga attire and custom made McQueen garments - it didn't blow me away. It is however, different from her previous work, further enforcing her status as a Queen of Transformation.

I may be slightly biased, as I will never have a bad word said against Lady Gaga (the new Queen of Pop) but there's no denying her creativity and innovation, so I'm expecting to see a lot more latex, black cloaks and bowl cuts around from now on...

...and that's just from the boys...

Not her best? I thought that, from an artistic point of view, it definitely is. But I suppose it isn't in terms of showbiz.

as a work of film, probably her best, as a music video, I'm not convinced...
