  1. Interestingly weird- bits of Dali, Bunuel, Cocteau and leather porn- not sure if this is going to sell any perfume.

  2. the first thing u see in the video is the word "warning"...

    it is my interpretation that the warning spelled out with images, reads as follow:

    "you are about to waste 5:30 minutes of your life that you'll never get back"

    what a waste of money.... she truly has a face made for radio...

  3. It's microscopic life at the bottom of a tar pit. Bottled then for wearing.

  5. I got a sample of Fame from Sephora. It was cloying and I wanted it to go away.
    I enjoyed the way Justin Bieber smells. And who wouldn't?

  7. This is what happens when you over-analyze a smell.

    It's just a smell.

  8. Play the following audio to Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" underneath it and it makes sense.

  9. She looks as if she's impersonating Marilyn Manson without the bung eye.

  10. I realize this pins me as an old person, but I remember when Lady Gaga was fun.

  11. What BS! Come on everyone can see it's a complete hoax. Her boobs aren't that pretty.

  12. Aesthetically incoherent. Let's take the "film" on its own terms. It is very spatial. Yet, try to imagine the topography of the "fame" landscape. You can't. Because it is a random set of images shot in a studio. I'm not saying that every video has to have a topography, but the cruvilinearity of the forms, the monumentality of the Gaga sculpture, invites a certain topographical thinking, that is then disavowed. You can't propose a set of untenable terms and demand that you be taken seriously. The video is incoherent, at every level. The worst part is the juxtaposition of the pompous nude sculpture (which has a certain appeal) with the silly flag drill team dance she does. What type of world are you imagining Gaga? I don't think that you even know.

  14. Gaga- Your pseudo-performance art hucksterism bores all of us, officially. It entertained some of us for a bit. But we are all bored.

  20. And didn't the Pet Shop Boys do all of this imagery with their NINETIES album Very?

  21. Someone has watched MirrorMask, Tim Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland, and Snow White and the Huntsman way too many times.

  23. I have to agree with Miguel R. I can see a reference to Narcissus and how that might coordinate with the fame experience, but overall the imagery is just incoherent. I feel like I can usually follow the symbols Gaga uses, but this just seems random. The worshiping at the altar of Gaga is evident with the crown and crawling men (more fame). She declares herself as "mother monster" (in German)--more fame. But everything else is too abstract, assuming she was actually trying to convey anything.
