I can't look away Gaga! "Ale-Ale-Alejandro"
So I finally watched the full length version of Lady Gaga's music video for her new single "Alejandro". My first impression after watching was "I saw this in the early '90s with Madonna". For those of you old enough to remember, think back to the Like A Prayer era. Then thoughts of Zoolander came to mind, with it's over the top ridiculousness. Still, it is going to be the biggest music video in the world for a while until Lady Gaga puts out another music video. How can one top a machine gun pointy bra or get even more gay-tastic? How do you top choreography that incorporates muscled up male models with haircuts like Moe from Three Stooges? I'm sure she will. Over the top seems to be her thing, but yet I can't stop singing "Alejandro" out loud without meaning to. Damn you Gaga and your catchy hooks! Here is the video in case you haven't seen it.
