After being subjected to a couple of music videos by the recording artist–namely “Bad Romance” and “Paparazzi“–I’m starting to understand the appeal. Not only are the songs Madonna-catchy, the imagery in Lady Gaga’s videos is, well, fucked up. I’m actually borderline convinced Lady Gaga, based upon the visuals alone, is a genius worthy of awards, respect, and a dump truck full of critical analysis. What’s significance of the shaved cat in “Bad Romance,” for example? Or the bloody piano interlude in her VMA performance of “Paparazzi”?
Am I wrong in thinking this is worth exploring?
