Lady Gaga's Epic Pop Video

The new Lady Gaga video is one impressive piece of work. Directed by Jonas Akerlund (Madonna's usual partner in crime) this 8 minute epic piece of pop-film is being held as one of the videos of the year so far. The plot line is clever: the story of a young starlet tortured by her lover and the media, who eventually turns things around by murdering her boyfriend for press attention (surely Chicago-inspired). If your thing is Swedish cinematography, voguing in a wheelchair or outstanding corsets, this is for you. Even if this Lady's music is so far nothing more than average, it sure is refreshing to see a young star pulling herself up (by her bra strings) to the top of pop culture and being in total creative control.
