Independent Spirits Think Alike


Basically everyone with a high-speed Internet connection has seen Lady GaGa's new music video/single, "Bad Romance", and it's totally awesome. My favorite part though, is Lady GaGa rocking Alexander McQueen's unique stilettos. If you look at this video, they first appear at 3:27. What I love about these shoes is that they're ugly. There is no getting around the fact that they strongly resemble lobster claws. However, this is all irrelevant. The shoes are concept pieces, they aren't meant to be dainty & pretty, they are meant to push the bounds of fashion & design. And that's a message Lady GaGa can clearly appreciate, as it seem she made a special part of her music video dedicated to the shoes.

Although a lot of GaGa fans may not realize this, but "Bad Romance" was officially premiered not this past week, but during Fashion Week. Alexander McQueen used it as the musical backdrop to his collection (check the video- more shoes!). So in this case, did fashion inspire the music video or was Lady GaGa merely saying thank you? Either way, I love that these two independent spirits are collaborating.

  4. Yeah, I really couldn't stand her until I saw "Bad Romance", then I was introduced to her other awesome videos (I like the makeup at the end of Paparazzi). Lady GaGa is the kind of entertainer (I use that term specifically) that probably spends twenty minutes max creating a song and weeks meticulously designing the accompanying video.

    As for the shoes, they freaked me out at first too, but now I wish I could even to begin to afford a pair. Imagine all the double-takes you'd get.
