    I love it. Lady Gaga is so fresh and new. I love everything she does. Beyonce shouldnt try to act. She doesnt do anything for me. But this video was good for her. her last few videos all seemed the same.

    She looks like Madonna circa 1990 Blond Ambition tour. Madonna no longer needs to go to this extreme. She's already done it.

    Fun, playful, creative-minded, too many obvious references and style nods, decent editing, good use of Beyonce (esp. getting her to play a lesbian) and a better video than song.

    Genius? Sorry boys...to all of us born before 1975, this has been done many times before. Let's see...lesbian undertones....insert Madonna and Sandra Bernhard around 1988-89.

    I think her music would stand on it's own without the overproduction of costumes and attempts to shock. Talent is talent...but her stuff turns to schtick very quickly.

    I usually really like Lady Gaga's music, but lately, she seems to be going too far trying to come up with something that still has shock value. Having a telephone as a theme is pretty silly. It was silly in Beyonce's videophone and didn't really need another video.

    Using your video to plug products (a cellphone company, dating site, truck (?), etc.) is a bit cheap. I don't recall Madonna ever plugging products, though perhaps I'm forgetting something.

    The most disturbing part however (and I hate to say this, cause I really like her previous work), is the violence her latest videos seem to glorify. In Paparazzi she glorifies killing her bf, in this one, poisoning an entire diner is made to appear cool. Her performance on Oprah involved smashing a taxi's windshield, her VMA performance had her dying at the end. While her videos make headlines, she's sending the wrong message to kids today. Being rebellious sells, and she'll no doubt pull the "it's art" card when one of her fans actually poisons someone or kills them. It's just a shame, cause her real talent lies in her music.

    I've watched tens of hours of her interviews and she seems very intelligent and calculated. The only thing is it's a show. If you watch her interviews from a year and a half ago, her accent was different. She also had a rich girl mentality (growing up in the same neighborhood as Paris Hilton, complaining on Jay Leno that the worst rumor about her was that she was from Yonkers). Later on, she adopted the "I live for my fans" and "I've always felt like a freak" (underdog) mentality.

    She's a very smart businesswoman and is basically recycling old material to a new generation. It's working, but I don't think we should automatically love everything she releases.

    Yeah, I've always thought she had a very good understanding of how the industry works and was taking advantage of it. But that's part of what I love about her! Instead of a label being behind the scenes pulling all the strings... she's in control of it all herself! That takes someone much more intelligent than your average pop star.

    And to you saying she's a bad influence on kids... she doesn't make music for kids. She says that. She makes music for us... gay guys, lol. And just because kids will listen to her too, it doesn't mean she has to start catering to that demographic. Kids have Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus... Gaga is ours, and those kids can't have her. icon_smile.gif

    The violence in her videos demonstrates an attitude of empowerment and defiance... which is something I think our generation needs. In her videos she doesn't play the victim when people attack her... instead she fights back, and that's a much needed positive message.

    Quality costume design placed in a glossy, choreographed production brought to you by Virgin Mobile and Wonder Bread.

    Are we supposed to take something more from this?

    It was more video than music. I was kind of thinking I was watching the beginning of an Austin Powers movie for a moment.

    Visually cool. Not much substance but still entertaining.

    Hmmm, I THOUGHT it was fishy when she had given three different explinations for what "poker face" was about

    "its about some old friends who really like to gamble so I wanted a pop song for them"

    later on a few months

    "its about being bi and having to hide from your boyfriend that your thinnking about woman when you screw him"

    I forgot what the OTHER reason was...

    I mean it COULD be all of these things, but...

    Like most recycled cloned pop music, it will be forgotten about in 30 days.
