Lady Gaga and Beyonce ‘Video Phone’ Video Is Straight Up Amazing

*Let me know when the posted video is taken down for copyright infringement and I’ll continue finding new ones.

The ten million or so looks in the new video for Beyonce’s “Video Phone” are good enough to distract from the fact that she of the small leotards and massive ass spends five minutes singing about, well, video phones. It starts out looking like more of the same Sasha Fierce bull she’s been putting out for far too long, but quickly morphs into the best approximation of a fashion show via music video I’ve ever seen.

We get the now-classic Beyonce leotard action over and over, but we also get mind-blowingly great makeup and everything from a betrenched B to Beyonce gone Katy Perry and just enough Lady Gaga with a gun to terrify all of mankind forever. It’s the best Beyonce has has looked in years and, for once, the sight of Lady Gaga doesn’t make me simultaneously excited and fearful. (Just excited.) Quick cuts and mad makeup do wonders for a girl.

(Thanks for the link, Joe.)

    I wonder what this video will look like on MTV, with all the guns in it.

    About Me

    Lily Q lives and obsesses about clothes in New York's West Village, where a myriad of tempting stores and pretty dresses threaten to leave her living in a box much like a hobo. When not crying silently about how little time and how many shoes there are, Lily is writing about it.

    You can also check her out on TheFrisky.com, The Local blog (Brooklyn version) at The New York Times and her own blog, Lily Q Talks Clothes. She could easily have written this bio in the first person but prefers that special variety of douchiness that comes with writing in the third person.
