On Thursday night, the epic-ness that is the “Telephone” video premiered on E! at 11:30pm. “Telephone” picks up where Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” video left off. Gaga’s time in the slammer doesn’t last long though: Beyonce calls to bail her out, and the two make the rounds in Tarantino’s P—y Wagon. Among their stops is a diner. Insert a how-to poison sandwich scene and Honey B and Gaga commit a mass-murder. On the road again and on the lamb, the pop superstars drive off into the sunset. Promising never to come back again.
With most things Gaga, a lot of people say they “don’t get it.” Well, there’s really nothing to ‘get.’ In an interview with Ryan Seacrest’s radio show Monday, Gaga said of the video:
“I really believe in the power of visuals and sometimes visions come to me and I know I have to do them. It doesn’t really matter if it makes sense or if it doesn’t make sense. By the end of the video, it became so much more as we explored each scene it … became about making fun of American hallmarks like soda cans and cigarettes and mayonnaise and bread.”
It’s tongue-and-cheek, the acting’s bad, but it’s all apart of the “pop-surreal” look that the video pulls off marvelously. LG takes the simple concept of a girl who’d rather get busty on the dance floor than talk to a lover and makes it something bigger.
