Demo of Britney doing Lady Gaga’s “Telephone”

Apparently “Telephone” was written with Britney Spears in mind, but she rejected it. Here is the demo of Britney’s recording. I know this is just a demo, but that autotune is just awful. The song is pretty flat. I doubt that a completed version would have been half the monster that the Lady Gaga/Beyonce version is.

Here is the link to download it.

Also, here are some U.S. troops in Afghanistan doing a video where there they dance to “Telephone”. It’s pretty funny. The dance one of the troops does at 1:05 is priceless.

Lady Gaga w/ Beyonce – Telephone video

Ok, so this is NSFW due to nudity, violence, cursing, etc. The video is a lot to take in. It amounts to a 10 minute Tarantino homage. It’s pretty much Natural Born Killers meets Caged Heat.

My first five questions are:
1) Did Tarantino give his blessing?
2) Was that dance move Lady Gaga made when leaving the prison a tribute to Michael Jackson, or…?
3) Did Miracle Whip and Wonder Bread really pay for part of this?
4) Does Beyonce really think that “motherfucker” was really where the line is?
5) Is this making any actual statement, or is it much ado about nothing?

Love her or hate her, no one is doing what Lady Gaga is doing. I love the song, and this certainly tops “Bad Romance”. So, I’m thrilled. I’ve watched it several times. But, I can’t help but worry she’s going to burn out on ideas very quickly. She seems like she’s putting a lot out there very quickly. Also, it’s a big deal Gaga got Beyonce to do this. I think, despite her reluctance to put a “motherfucker” out there, Beyonce went far out there for Beyonce. My favorite line is, “We’re going to make you swim outta here in your own blood, bitch.”

Stills from upcoming “Telephone” video.

I’ve been eager to see what Lady Gaga does with the video for “Telephone”, and it looks and sounds as epically bonkers as you’d expect. After Bad Romance, she has a lot to live up to. And, “Telephone” is a fantastic song.

OK Lady Gaga, I was wrong.

I think it says something this video from before she was famous is meant to reinforce that she is talented, rather than make her look stupid or something. You can kinda tell she’s a little nuts though.

Here are the three songs from the forthcoming The Fame Monster album. I really like them. Her duet with Beyonce is going to be huge I think. It says a lot for Lady Gaga that Beyonce is doing a song with her. “Dance In The Dark” is clearly meant to evoke Madonna, with the whole invocation of the “Vogue” bit. “Alejandro” has an obvious Ace Of Base sample, and also seems meant to remind you of “La Isla Bonita”. It’s hard to top Madonna, but Ace Of Base is an easy target. Either way, these songs are miles better than anything on The Fame. Lady Gaga clearly has seen from the success of “Poker Face”, “Just Dance”, and “Paparazzi” that people like her electronic dance stuff more than the bullshit during the last half of The Fame. Here’s hoping she stays on that path and keeps putting out videos as mindblowing as “Bad Romance”.

Dance In The Dark


December 1, 2008


I’ve had this song in my head for three days now. Britney did three performances of Womanizer over in Europe this past week. I don’t think she’s actually singing. I read she didn’t want to sing live in order to focus on her dancing. Don’t let all the bullshit around her distract you, and you’ll see she’s really not doing much in the way of dancing either. My favorite bit is at 2:07 in where she does possibly the least sexy humping motion ever. She does look hot though. And man, what a fuckin song. I hope she paid the people who wrote and produced it well. Sure, “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” is cute, but this song bangs. BTW, I have her last album Blackout. I heard it when it first came out and thought it was the worst album I ever heard. But, when the Break The Ice video came out I gave it another chance, and if I don’t think it’s Britney and think it’s some nobody with fuckloads of money to hire the best producers and writers, I think it’s a good album. Still a pale shadow of Madonna’s Confessions On A Dance Floor”, but fun nevertheless. Especially “Break The Ice”. Yes, I just said a Britney album is good. Apparently Circus is going to be a “safer” version of Blackout which probably means it’ll be more mediocre.

This live performance gets pulled down due to copyright. It may not work. (1/31/09)
