Who Said Bad Romances Can’t Be Good

The music video for Lady Gaga’s latest single “Bad Romance” has finally hit YouTube, and let’s just say it’s quite the visual spectacle. Actually, I take that back. It’s more than just a visual spectacle—it’s like stepping into a whole new universe, one inhabited by vicious supermodels, men in strange metal masks, and of course, Lady Gaga. While I’m not entirely sure what the premise of the video is (apparently she’s being sold off to the Russian mafia at some point), I could watch this video a hundred times just for the clothes.

So far my favorites are the fake polar bear dress/coat and red lace bodysuit, but those are just two of many outfits in the video. To make the whole thing even better, Alexander McQueen SS10 makes multiple appearances in the video…there certainly is no mistaking those infamous “armadillo” shoes. But what do you think of the video? Has Lady Gaga finally gone crazy, or is she really just an artistic genius?

  1. this video is perfection. i have watched it at least 10 times since it premiered. gaga is amazing! thanks for posting it on the blog!

  2. I'm surprised Jordan didn't post this. After all, he's Mr. House of Gaga.

  3. This video does not fail to amaze. Too bad it didn't drop before Halloween, I'm sure we would have seen a polar bear coat slithering somewhere around the streets of Berkeley. IMO, the black crown from the beginning was the best and needs to be re-created!

  4. omg brittany, i feel like my gaga obsession gets a little annoying so i try not to do this but aimee did an excellent job of bringing this to our attention!

  6. Ditto, thanks for posting this! Lady Gaga is honestly the only artist I can think of that can rock this collection like she does! GENIUS!
