OK. I saw it.
Would it be weird of me to say she looks like a blonde Alissa Czisny when she has the hood on?
"Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don't mean to do harm -- but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves." – T.S. Eliot
All that video needed was a dominatrix midget and a fish eye, and it would have been the most artistic video ever made.
Your small bourgeois minds cannot handle the tortured soul arteeeeste of Lady Gaga.

What was the point?...
I mean, at least her other videos had a plot. This one didn't follow the music and it appeared not to have a plot. It was stylish, definitely, but it's not remotely as memorable as her other stuff. I think.
That said, that song will be stuck in my head for the forseeable future.
It looks like unless there is a miracle then Alejandro will not make it to #1 and will end Gaga's run. It is currently #4 on mediabase but looks like it is going to slip back a spot very quickly to "Airplanes." Not far behind is Katy Perry's new single and she is gaining ground fast. Alejandro is doing well, don't get me wrong, but this looks like it may not even make it to the top 3. A top 5 radio hit is HUGE for everyone except Gaga, she has never had anything less than a #1.

Well it's clearly based on Madonna. Suppose the only question is if it's a tribute or a fcuk you to those of us who about her claiming Madonna did it better years earlier
Whatever her inspiration I just wish she'd run off and do a hardcore porn film so that even she gets tired of flashing her crotch.
Tessa and Scott: Thank you
It started off really strong and then just got silly stupid.
Wow Marilyn Manson. Okay...
The video is so over-produced for a rather simplistic song. The song can't sustain the video. Every video after Bad Romance is over-produced. She needs to get back to the more basic video format of "Just Dance".
The boys are hot, but their bowl haircuts are .... unfortunate .
I watched the video, and hmmm...I'm just over her music videos at the moment. They become less and less related to the actual song and more and more about some abstract thing for which I'm not willing to use any brainpower to figure out. I was definitely uncomfortable halfway through as well. Count me in as another one who would love to see Gaga make a simple music video next time.
I don't really see this as Madonna video v2.
It's darker, weirder, more unsettling, less airbrushed
And every time I hear Ace of Base I get them stuck in my head too
Just like Madonna, she does middle-of-the-road pop and it's really annoying to see her being perceived as "oh-so-groundbreaking."
Electro scene has been really vibrant for the last 10 years or so and Gaga is just leeching of it, bringing into the popular domain what used to be underground. There is nothing groundbreaking in it.
On another note, she seems even better than Madonna at attracting attention and that helps her immensely.
