Speaking of the Lady, she has out done herself yet again. Her new video for “Telephone,” a collaboration with the none other than the Queen B herself, features girl-on-girl gropes, packing references and butches (There aren’t ever butches, let alone presented in a positive manner!), to name a few things. And the dance breakdowns give a whole new meaning to the phrase “Cell Block Tango.”
While there have been queerer scenarios put on film, there hasn’t been anything this subversively queer on this large of a scale in quite some time. The video may appear frivolous to some — and it does have its issues, like gratuitous violence — but it is incredibly radical as far as pop culture goes.
Oh, and trust me, if GaGa ever was in the slammer, people across America would go on crime sprees just to spend some time locked up with the Lady.
