We can count on Lady Gaga for a lot of things -- some great dance beats, plenty of controversy, and some of the most outlandish outfits on this plant. She can do no wrong in my book, and whenever our new icon drops a new track, I fire it up at my desk, break out my facial horns, and dance around my cube like all good little monsters should.
Ooh la la! Lady Gaga with chain nails.
Her latest music video, "Judas," motivated me to do two things besides bust a move: one, go to confessional, and two, get a badass manicure. But when I requested the "Judas" mani, my manicurist looked at me like I had horns coming out of my cheeks and refused to accomodate my request for extra-long nails with chains and rhinestones. I know, right?
More nails, more eyeliner, more awesome.
But enough about my trials and tribulations. Gaga's video is hair-raising for all the right reasons.
With extreme makeup (think eyeliner that starts in the corner, weaves around, and artfully drips down her face) and outrageous nails, Gaga's interpretation makes me realize what music videos are for -- expression and fantasy.
Her biker persona is a little bit goth and a little bit rock and roll.
Her look in "Judas" is a combination of biker, '90s emo-chic, and dominatrix ... each taken to the tenth power. I don't think it's a departure for Gaga to dress this way, we've seen her do some wacky stuff before, but the point is that it's still not old. I, for one, am not even close to being over her eccentric makeup and bizarre fashion choices. In fact, I hope she's just getting started.
This is so '90s-angst that I almost wanna listen to "Jagged Little Pill" next.
And it sounds like she won't be slowing down, or apologizing for her sense of style, anytime soon. In an interview with E!, Gaga says that the only contentious part of the religiously-themed video is the fashion.
Zebra stripe hair.
"In my opinion, the only controversial thing about this video is that I'm wearing Christian Lacroix and Chanel in the same frame."
