I Don't Get It

So, tonight in random boredom I decided to watch some Lady Gaga videos. Can I just say that I don't really get her videos?

The latest one, Alejandro...I just can't wrap my mind around or even figure out the meaning behind it. Maybe I'm just really dense? Or maybe I had too many glasses of wine at dinner and it's hampering my thought process. At any rate....the video just confuses me. It's like an old school Madonna video re-visted with weird Lady Gaga vibes.



P.S. I'm still working on Rome pictures. Hopefully they will be up tomorrow!

Yeah, I don't get her videos, either. I was pretty disturbed by the video for her collaboration with Beyonce. But this Alejandro video is weird too. :(

I just ignore the videos. It's pretty obvious she's just trying to be sensational, but it comes across as so over-done it's lame. (To me, anyway.)

I don't think there is any explaining! I think she may be trying to be a modern day Madonna in face.
Funny, related side note:
Was watching Chelsea Lately last night when they brought Lady Gaga up. Chelsea asked Chewey (the funny little Mexican guy, if you somehow have never seen it) if he liked Lady Gaga. He says in his little accent and a shrug of the shoulders, "of course, Allejandro is my cousin". I laughed for a very long time.

I really love Lady Gaga, personally. She's provocative and actually really, really smart. I enjoy that she stands up for the issues she believes in and takes them to her fans full force. Alejandro on the surface does seem like a throwback to "Just Like A Prayer", but I think it's a more modern outlook on denominations today and all the scandal amongst them.

I am so glad to hear someone else shares my thoughts about her too! Her music is quite catchy and I will admit to liking it, but I am so confused by her. And anyone of my friends here would shoot me if I said that to them.

Yeah, I don't get her either! I just think she's too over the top.

So weird!! The one for Telephone is random too...

I don't "get" her per say either, but I find her intriguing. I think she's a strange one for sure, but that's why she keeps my interest. Her music isn't amazing in my book, but just how weird and outrageous she is and the things that come out of her mouth when she's off stage make me like her.

I love the songs but the video's completely freak me out.

I really love her music. It's totally peppy and gets me through many miles on the treadmill. This video is pretty crazy though! I was a little traumatized after watching it. lol!

Oh good... I thought I was the only one that thought she was ridiculous and I can't stand her music!
