So Lady Gaga’s newest music video for “Alejandro” just came out. Now that her video for “Bad Romance” currently reigns as the most watched in YouTube, I’m sure this will follow suit.
The MTV for Alejandro is pure Gaga: Dramatic, over-the-top, bordering on soft-core porn, and often unnecessary.
After seeing it, I can’t help but see certain themes of Madonna’s earlier videos. People say Lady Gaga is the new Madonna. But I guess, Lady Gaga’s more…for lack of a better term, ‘pointless.’
I simply don’t get her videos. Is she supposed to push avant-garde? She’s entertaining and I like her music but I’m not sure what her point is.
I often find myself liking her music but abhorring the MTV for it. Is it just me? Anyway, here’s the Alejandro video and the other Madonna videos I see resemble it. Go!
