Then, thank her again when Katy's breasts finally erupt..too has largely been made possible by Lady Gaga, who played a major role in saving the music video itself.(Really, Gaga, thank you so very very much for Katy Perry's explosive tits.I can honestly say I was so tickled by Gaga's little nod to the post-adolescent set (which Ke$ha also used to great effect with her recent James van der Beek-starring video for "Blow") that I didn't notice any of the plethora of homages to Guess Who that pervade the video until indignant bloggers bellowed them into my consciousness (I did catch the Michael Jackson gloves at the end, but I was far more entranced by the trippy digital effect than anything).As for the video, there are a number of bits I love, and there are a few things I dislike to some degree or another; then there are elements I simply find amusing or interesting.Of course, Spears was subtle about it, subtlety being so fundamental to her image and style throughout her career; Gaga is of a vastly different school where subtlety stays locked up in a remote closet and only brought out on rare and strategic occasions, and then usually only as a means of amplifying her defining lack thereof.Gaga's musical references are so obvious and unsurprising that those of us familiar with pop music before Gaga (which we must remember much of her core audience is not...it's unnerving to realize how young "young people" really are) can tire of her once the visceral excitement of the immediate rush wears off, and I can speak from experience.
I relayed the full story in a pair of posts (here and here) during my first month writing this blog, but to summarize, I wanted to select a title from the lyrics of one of the handful of artists most important to me, initially hoping to use something specifically referring to music.I wouldn't mind seeing more of that Gaga once in a while. I think I've succeeded in saying everything I might like to say on the topic of Lady Gaga and her silly little "Born This Way" business.I found it necessary to get it all out now because there is a new Britney Spears album coming out in less than a month, and I do not need any unnecessary Gaga-related distractions, especially with a May release date for this supposedly epic album. I noticed an uptick in visitors finding my site through search keywords like "Born This Way Vertigo" and similar, which seemed odd as I could see no reason the anonymous masses would take particular interest in what I had to say about this particular song.It clicked as I viewed the video a second time a few days later, when instantly I knew why the music was so familiar and of what these anonymous searchers were actually in search: the ominous tremolo from a hoard of cellos was borrowed from the prelude to Bernard Hermann's iconic score for Hitchcock's masterpiece, Vertigo. Good old Gaga, always pulls through just when I'm about to lose all hope.
