It’s a new Gaga video y’all – which means endless years of trying to figure out what this woman really wants to say. The universe will never really know right?
The feverishly anticipated video for ‘Applause‘ – definitely her best song in ages – is ALL Gaga, which extrapolates to the clip being a Reverse Warholian Madness resembling the love-child of David Bowie and Grace Jones.
The Inez and Vinoodh-directed clip is all over the place. And fierce is the word for this one!
Firstly, the bras. Sublime!
The hand-bra screams Janet Jackson’s 1993 iconic ‘janet.’ album cover, and that ain’t so bad though,since Gaga is a self-confessed Janatic (bless her). And then there’s the clam-shell bra, where she poses as Botticelli’s ‘The Birth Of Venus‘. ARTPOP remember?
Secondly the choreography. Fierceness!
With a hip-surgery leaving her immobile for months, the woman has brought back those moves that could slay any pop-vixen in the game. Go Gaga!
Thirdly, the weirdness. But of course!
Gaga’s head atop a black swan/goose? The giant leg-thingie she carries around on the runway? But then what would I know, I’m only human y’all!
