Epic… Fail.

Posted on: June 1, 2009

After watching the leaked Lady Gaga video, Paparazzi, it made me wonder why I was so keen on watching it in the first place.

I make no sense.

Anyway, one of the major reasons is that Alexander Skarsgard (you guys might know him from portraying Eric Northman in HBO’s Original Series, True Blood) was casted for the video. Secondly, it is a Lady Gaga music video. How could I miss it?

Wrong. Move.

First of all, the beginning was outright weird. Gaga was making out with Alexander, her lover, in the bedroom between messy sheets when all of a sudden… He betrays her seconds later. The rest of the video chronicles her life after the betrayal.

It is totally out-of-this-world. Picture Gaga stripping down to a C-3PO costume and hobbling around in crutches. Oh, throw in random jerky dance moves, a dance crew formed by sky-high models who look like those from Robert Palmer’s Addicted to Love video (they were prancing around her mansion) and not forgetting a funky looking neck brace that is worn by the Lady herself.

Well, all I liked about the mini-movie (the video’s about 8 minutes long) was the ending. Gaga poisoned the man who betrayed her, who died rather silent-movie style. After which Gaga dials the authorities and blantantly confesses, “I killed my boyfriend”.

In all warpness, the ending actually signified the hunger for fame and media attention. Kind of like those outrageous Britney moments.

Till then,  I look forward to less avant garde videos from the Lady Gaga. Wild parties need to end… Eventually.
