The Lady Gaga/Beyoncé "Telephone" Video Premiere!!

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.

  1. I love this video because it is a good combination of lady gaga and beyonce. I think with beyonce being in a video with lady gaga is making her more different and unique because she is touching in different areas of music.

  2. This video is kinda sketch to me like beyonce doesn't really fit the style that Gaga does and maybe that's a good thing since she needs to expand and get better in the aspects..

  3. This is a great video; truly revolutionary. I love the fact that it looks like a film while still keeping the video appeal. lol @ Semi-Precious Weapons being in the video.

  4. I LIKE this videooo..i think lady gaga's like soo weir & different that her videos really dont have to make sense , that could be what she's trying to aim for, to make us think a lil bit.

  5. I like Lady Gaga to some extent but I Kid You Not (Ms More ^_^)when I say that I did not understand this friggin video lol I have watched it 3 times and its just I cant get off the fact that i still wanna ask What was the point of this video??

  6. @ J. Santos: Thanks! The point of the video? I wouldn't say there's a point as much as a commentary on American consumerism, according to Gaga. Other than that it's just an entertaining piece of pop (music) art and a countinuation of the "Paparazzi" video.
