Lady Gaga Says 'Telephone' Video Will Top 'Bad Romance'
Lady Gaga has created some visual masterpieces in the past, but according to the pop superstar, her latest work will top them all.
The music video for “Telephone,” the second single from The Fame Monster, features Beyoncé and was shot in Los Angeles the week before the Grammys. The two singers previously collaborated on the song and video for Beyoncé’s “Video Phone (Extended Remix).”
Gaga recalled going in front of the lens with B for the second time. “It was really amazing,” she told Johnjay and Rich on Phoenix’s 104.7 KISS FM. “Beyoncé’s incredible and I had a lot of time with her, so I was able to put her in quite a bit of the video.”
The Jonas Ã…kerlund-directed clip reportedly picks up where “Paparazzi” left off, but surpasses its predecessors. “I feel so bad for the ‘Bad Romance’ video ’cause the ‘Telephone’ video’s so much better,” she said.
The Grammy-winning pals had a blast on set. “[Beyoncé’s] really a great friend of mine. We have a lot of fun working together. We’re so very different in our approaches, but somehow when we come together it’s really magical. I’m very excited for everyone to see the video.”
The anticipation is building for the premiere, scheduled for this month. “What I like about it is it’s a real true pop event, and when I was younger, I was always excited when there was a big giant event happening in pop music and that’s what I wanted this to be.”
