ZOMG, this parody of Lady Gaga and Beyoncé‘s “Telephone” is totally brilliant — even if the Frisky offices are nothing like “The Office.” Anyone who manages to rhyme the words “passive-aggressive micromanaging man whore” is my new hero! Keep reading »
“The kiss was down from the get go. It happened very naturally and organically. I leaned into smell her and I started by kissing her neck. It was electric and when I got to her mouth, she actually kissed me. Kissing lady Gaga was like kissing any beautiful woman you feel a connection with, as soon as I touched her she was just that, very sensitive and responsive. It even eclipsed the crazy cigarette glasses that were smoking. I think we did four or five takes, it all happened so fast, it was a bit of a blur. By the last takes we were brushing ashes off each other and coughing and laughing. Talk about second hand smoke! But really it was a performance and that yes she is a good kisser but kissing my girlfriend is even more powerful as I’m totally under her spell.”

Rarely lauded for their subtlety, Lady Gaga and Beyonce went even more balls out than usual with the product placement in their recently released “Telephone” music video. First up, there’s the fact that the song itself (much like its predecessor, “Videophone”) is just waiting to be licensed for commercial use by a cell phone company. But lest they should be accused of selling out to cell phones entirely, entertainment’s strangest lady duo produced an out-of-control video to accompany the
jingle song, too. All we can say is we hope major money went Gaga and B’s way, because their almost 10-minute video was like an extended commercial for everything from dating sites to Polaroid to Verizon to Miracle Whip. Check out the most blatant placements, after the jump. [BlackBook] Keep reading »
Over the weekend, the rumor began that MTV was banning Lady Gaga and Beyonce‘s 10-minute epic collaboration video, “Telephone“—which was amusing, ’cause when does MTV actually play videos anyway? This got me thinking—what was the most offensive part of the video? The near nudity in the beginning? The cigarette sunglasses? The lesbian crotch-grabbing? The mass murder? Well, apparently, none of the above. The video isn’t actually banned at all—MTV has been playing it since Friday. “Fans can continue to catch the video as we repeat it on-air and online,” a spokesperson said. Which is good news, I think. Because, honestly, the only truly offensive part of the video to me is all the shameless product placement. Virgin Mobile, Diet Coke, PlentyOfFish.com, Wonderbread, Coors Light, Polaroid—are there any products not endorsed in this thing?
