Lady GaGa Takes a Trip Underground for LoveGame Video

Lovegame

Here's Lady GaGa's video for her next single "LoveGame". The video was directed by Joseph Kahn and shot mostly in Los Angeles (though it features the NYC subway) in early January. Two Great Dane dogs, which featured in her early videos for "Poker Face" and "Eh, Eh" also appear briefly here in an early shot as she descends a staircase in the subway.

The clip features some steamy lesbian action, as well as an odd bit of Campari product placement.

Lady GaGa has discussed her bisexuality in the past. She told HX in August: "I love men, I love women and I love sex, but I’m actually pretty introverted right now because I’m so enveloped in my work, and it’s hard to let anybody near that. People fuck with your energy, and it’s very hard to find people that are supportive of your art and don’t want to take time away from it. A lot of times, boyfriends and girlfriends get jealous and want all your attention, and I really don’t have time for that."

Watch the video, AFTER THE JUMP...

  3. I just don't get it. Everything that has ever been pop mixed up with a stolen Christina Aguilera wig.

    VTF.

  6. Her attempts at making bedroom eyes in the first half just make her look stoned.

    It is good to know that Campari is the new It drink. I'm guessing that yellow watch was also product placement.

  7. Loathe the bitch. She's yet another female entertainer who's using her so-called bisexuality as a marketing ploy. It's an accommodation of the male bigots who think that girl-girl is "hot" and male-male is "gross".

    Listen, Ga Ga, we buy your records and yet you still refuse to put male-male action in your videos. Fuck off, bitch.

  8. Has anyone else noticed the bisexual double standard in the entertainment industry? From Katy Perry to Madonna to Britney to Lady Ga Ga, there's a concerted effort to portray girl-girl as hot and socially acceptable, especially in terms of the straight male-accommodating context of female bisexuality. Yet it is still taboo for a male artist to do this in terms of guy-guy and male sexual fluidity.

    This is what happens when liberals are allowed to run riot. Liberals only like girl-girl, especially if it's portrayed in terms of the sexually fluid female. It's like porn, really. It's designed to prop up the fetishes of "straight" men. Lady Ga Ga is reinforcing the bisexual double standard by not allowing male-male action in her videos.

    Lady Ga Ga is not on our side, and that's why I won't be buying her records. She's yet another spoke in the wheel of male heterosexual fantasy.

  9. Lady Ga Ga claims to be pro-gay. Ok, fair enough. But I'm still waiting for her to put some steamy guy-guy action in her videos. Do you think I'll be waiting forever? Or is she just another hypocrite who is using gay men to build a power base while marketing herself using the very same stereotypes you see in a straight men's magazine?

    Hot guy-guy action not good enough for your videos, Lady Ga Ga?

  10. Note the sleazy little tricks that Lady Ga Ga's video producer appears to be using to avoid showing male-male action. There's a shot of two guys close together in the same still, but Lady Ga Ga is between them, thus rendering impossible the presence of any male-male action. Yet the female-female interaction is shown, albeit very briefly.

    Typical double standards from the liberals who are currently controlling the music industry. To them, girl-girl is hot, guy-guy is not-to-be-shown.

    The liberals in the American music industry are currently conducting a war against the male-male interaction, especially in terms of its presentation in mainstream settings. They're terrified of it, and avoid it at all costs.

    How about we avoid them for a change? Boycott, anyone?

  11. Such deep thoughts about a pop music song and video !
    WOW!

    Some of you must be the type of gay that only shops gay and supports gay?

    Like some guys here in Vancouver and Seattle that will ONLY buy from gay-owned or gay-friendly shops.
    I've never understood this, and never will.

    It's pop music you guys!
    And as such, it's just fine and will do well. i see Gwen Stephani similarities and that's about it there is only so much you can do with pop music or music in general, stop getting your knickers in such knots!

    She doesn't owe YOU or ME anything, why should she?

    It's so fun to tear people down isn't it?

    And product placement? So what?

  12. Christina did show some ample male-male make out action in the Beautiful video.

    The Strokes also had some rather steamy male-male action in the Juicebox video, which was predictably ignored.

    Ga Ga may in fact be pro-gay but she's not really enforcing this belief. Not that she should be forced to anyway. But I think that this video is the singular vision of the director, not her.

    I'm all for more gay everywhere. Also, Anti-double standard.

  13. Frankly i dont really care if she is pro gay or not, i wont be buying her music because its shit.
    Take pink, Xtina, 2 tranny prostitutes and put them in a blender, add more fug, remove 50% of the (already low) talent and what flops out is this bitch.

  14. Here Here, Rovex.

    I can't wait until people grow bored of this tasteless flavour of the week.

  15. Hate to break it to you Brion, but you've been asleep for the past 6 months and have it all backwards. Christina's the one who's been accused of copying Lady GaGa's look and sound as of late. Her hit "Just Dance" rather unceremoniously doused Aguilera's latest attempt, "Keep's Gettin Better"

  17. ...politics aside, the music is pretty lame and uninteresting.

    Posted by: GTMSJ | Feb 15, 2009 9:38:09 AM


  18. I love it, and her. She is actually extremely knowledgeable about music if you listen to her interviews. She's also very talented... just listen to that a capella song.

    And all the other posts about man-on-man action are from the same guy who floods just about EVERY thread with the same nonsense. It appears he is now using several aliases to promote his idiotic views

  19. I love the Lady. Why the hate over no male-male action? This ain't gay porn. And she's not marketing her bisexuality (a la Kate Perry) in a cynical bid for hip cred. She's no tween Disney product. Pa-lease.

    GaGa writes her own music, plays instruments, sings, produces, designs, has an interesting worldview that is gay-positive, she's smart, and she is F-U-N. So is her music. Hello, she performed at Fire Island last summer.

    Come on guys, take a ride on her disco stick.

  20. More important: Anyone else get a 'Robin Byrd meets Confessions-Madonna' vibe from Lady GaGa?

  21. Jason and Frank (although I suspect you are one and the same),

    You need to buy a dictionary and look up "liberal".

    You are getting it confused with Neo-con.

    Although, I really don't see what the hell politics has to do with marketing in this case. Record companies are only using whatever tactics they feel will get their artists the widest fan base... they couldn't give two sh*ts less about the social impact. It's all about making money and nothing else.

  22. Isn't this "Lady Gaga" person's time up yet? She's a festering pile of crap.

    Check out Roisin Murphy's "Let Me Know" or "Overpowered" if you want to see what Lady Caca SHOULD be.

    Posted by: paul c | Feb 15, 2009 3:06:26 PM


  23. Ewwwwwwwww, I just hate hate hate that Roisin Murphy's voice!
    She is completely talentless and a big pile of poop!

    Ewwwwwwwwwww !
    She's gross!

    Posted by: Marc | Feb 15, 2009 5:22:45 PM


  24. what's with all the hate...sorry just seems a little too serious for such a non serious topic

    Posted by: epic | Feb 16, 2009 7:26:56 PM


  25. if she was a boy she'd have real talent.
