Bad Romance

I miss the old Lady Gaga. I want her back, strutting around with next-to-nothing on while she belts out a song with a driving beat that makes me want to get up and dance along with her. Singing “Cheek to Cheek” with Tony Bennett just doesn’t do it for me.

For a couple of years, while commuting to work, I would slideΒ The Fame Monster in the CD player in my car, crank up the volume, and zip down the highway singing along with Gaga. By the time I arrived at my job about twenty minutes later, I’d be all psyched up, ready to take on the world.

My favorite song, the one I’d play over and over, was “Bad Romance”. Released in October 2009, it has sold over 12 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling singles of all time. I don’t know how often the video has been viewed on YouTube, but I’d bet my collection of Stephen King books that it has been more than 12 million.

I miss the old Gaga. I miss her badly.

Please settle back with me, and let’s watch the one and only Lady Gaga at her outrageous best.

Warning: the following video contains brief, partial-nudity and sexual content.

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oooh-oh-oh-oh-oooh-oh-oh-oh!

  1. Bad Romance and Telephone are master pieces of music, dance and videography. Gaga is really talented and truly weird, so her weirdness comes off really well, creative and genuine, unlike so many young singers who are talented, but rather blah in general so when they try to be weird and shocking they come off as forced and vulgar.
