The New Lady Gaga Video is So Mid-90s Madonna!
It's crazy how mid-90s David Fincher-directed Madonnsky "Express Yourself" this is, right down to the crazy bra at the end! Gaga is one of those pop culture figures that make me all ambivalent-feeling, but I can't deny how much I love this song, mostly for its Swedish disco-y/ABBA/Ace of Base qualities. "Alejandro" the video lacks the bananas factor that "Telephone" and "Paparazzi" has for me; I kind of wish it had more genuine WTF/OMG-ness to it, because when it does, it has that spark of humor and cheekiness that Gaga needs, I think. It's dark and stylish, but maybe that's my thing with it -- it's not a dark and stylish song. It ultimately looks like a W magazine photo shoot come to life, which makes sense, considering fashion photographer Steven Klein directed it. I do like the dancing Mexican dudes with the bowl haircuts and leather suits, though. But I'm a big fan of dancing Mexican dudes in anything, really.
