Beyonce And Lady Gaga Are Really Into Their Video Phones
I tried to hate on this video, but I can’t! It’s just hot! At first I was like, yo, B, can you do something other than stand in front of a camera and gyrate like there’s no tomorrow? And, hey, Lady Gaga, can you just, like, disappear off my laptop screen for a moment? But then the beat got to me, and I fell under the spell of Beyonce and Lady Gaga’s “Video Phone,” directed by Hype Williams, who makes great everything he lenses. It’s part “Reservoir Dogs,” part Bettie Page, and there’s some brandishing of weapons. What do you think: love it or leave it?
