    Of course the people on Fox News think that it is. The Culture Police say that it is bad for children, and that it ties into child molesters watching porn. According to Sandy Rios, "The lesbian overtones are disgusting."

    This is nothing new. Anyone who is old enough to have lived through the Madonna "Like A Prayer", "Like A Virgin", "Erotica" and other videos knows that uptight holier-than-thou types have been getting their panties in a twist for decades over this sort of thing. Lady Gaga, like Madonna (and Britney to a lesser extent) are entertainers and expert marketers looking for "Shock Value" as they push the envelope further and further. Personally, I think the new "TELEPHONE" video is a hoot, but I can understand why some parents would have their feathers ruffled. It's pretty racy!

    I loved it, but then again I don´t find any sexual titillation in watching semi naked women kissing and dancing.

    I also like that that woman is so shocked by it. icon_twisted.gif

    I loved it. If history serves me right Madonna made videos that were so explicit they were only shown after midnight and then still needed editing. This is over the top but it's fun and campy.

    As far as this "expert," goes, she was definately side stepping the Madonna comparison. Madonna has done a video where she's gone on a killing spree (also temporarily banned from MTV), had burning crosses in the background of her videos, and didn't she also make out with Britney Spears on stage?

    If you're terrified of children seeing certain things, that's what Parental Controls are for.

    the same people have little problem with television depictions of violence, or indeed, real life violence, as long as it´s committed outside of the USA and in the name of freedom icon_rolleyes.gif

    Why did she bitch about it at first and then say that people should teach their kids to use good judgement?


    Teaching your kids to use good judgement = good

    Banning the shit = ridiculous.

    I wouldn't mind if my child watched lady gagas videos (if I had one). I just better not see their ass try to walk out the house naked with only crime scene tape on.

    Sandy Rios and people like her are what is wrong with our country, promoting hatred of people who think differently than them and saying that those people are disgusting. What was w/ the child molester comparison? That made absolutely no sense, saying that 85% of people who molest children watch some form of porn. I think more than 85% of the general public who don't molest anybody watch some kind of pornography lol. All she wanted to do was reinforce the sad comparison that some people make between homosexuals and perverts. That woman needs to be smacked, or laid - maybe both at the same time. This was a ridiculous clip, and I could go on and on about how big of an idiot that Rios woman is... but that would be letting her affect more than 3 minutes of my day, which I will not allow.

    Thou shall not praise Gaga!

    They don't even get the video. It's a meta-analysis on how American pop culture is slowly killing us. Hence why Beyonce's nails turn from yellow to red, white, and blue. The "telephone" is calling to wake us up.

    I'm sure those two were "very very bad girls too" back in the day. icon_evil.gificon_twisted.gif

    The answer is pretty simple.... if you don't want your children exposed to something, don't expose them to it.

    This all reminds me of mom vs. GWAR.



    And Gaga has nothing on GWAR.

    I thought the video was alright. Honestly I thought she's had better videos.... Bad Romance was awesome because it had a story that sort of made SENSE with the video.

    The music and lyrics of "Telephone" dont seem to go well at all with the video that Lady Gaga made... so I thought it wasnt exactly a hit. I think a lot of the themes in the video are weird (the mass murder, for instance), but Lady Gaga always has some sort of reasoning behind the stuff she puts out there....

    Bad Romance gets a 10/10

    Telephone gets a 7/10

    Why is it that my favorite part of the scene is when Beyonce takes a huge bite out of that Honey Bun? icon_razz.gif
