You and I Music Video

Love is a Result. We bare an Unbearable Human Inability: to just 'be.'
Love is a Result. We bare an Unbearable Human Inability: to just 'be.'

Dear Little Monsters,

I’ve written this letter to tell you all that Mother Monster Manifesto has released her video for her Born This Way track “Yoü and I.” I never expected it to be grotesque since the song itself is quite romantic. But despite my misconception, I still found the video entertaining. The setting was somewhere in Nebraska, with cornfields and a barn.

I was also excited to see her outfits but as I watched the video, I thought all of them were familiar. So I tried going through the Lady Gaga Chronicles anywhere in the web and found out I was right. The clothes and the looks were the same and so close to her previous appearances in her earlier music videos, photo-shoots, and concerts. So no claiming that she was copying other artists’ dresses, just herself.

She also presented her other alter egos in this MV. There was Jo Calderone sitting on the piano, Yuyi the Mermaid, and I don’t know about the others. She was also a female Frankenstein, a bionic, and a bride in the video. There were also sexual references on it.

I think my letter ends until here. You can just see the “Yoü and I” music video for yourselves and let me know what you think.

Au revoir,


P.S. The cool Nebraska guy is Taylor Kinney whom you might remember as the scorching hot werewolf, Mason Lockwood, from Vampire Diaries Season 2. Too bad they killed his character.

Lady Gaga is Jo Calderone: You and I single cover artwork

Once upon a time (August 2010 to be precise), Vogue Hommes Japan featured a boy with Italian descent. His name was Jo Calderone from Palermo, Sicily. He claimed that he had been working as a mechanic in his dad’s shop since he was a kid and Vogue was his first photo shoot ever. A simple guy who is a first timer in modeling rarely ends up in an international magazine cover so easily. But as it turned out, Jo Calderone is a no average Joe. He turns out to be Lady Gaga—a SUPERSTAR.

Again this August, Lady Gaga wore her Jo Calderone persona for her cover art in her Born this Way single You and I. With cigarette staged in her mouth and androgynous looks, Lady Gaga was photographed by Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. She was styled by Nicola Formichetti in Dior Homme with hair by Frederic Aspiras, makeup by Val Garland and art direction by Stephen Gan.

pretty for pretty’s sake

pretty for pretty's sake

Last Sunday was the only time I have again heard of Corinne Bailey Rae’s “Put Your Records On” through YouTube after some months. So I’ve been suffering from LSS of this song until now but I really didn’t know the whole of the lyrics, just the “Girl put your record on/ Tell me your favorite song..” part.

Then there was this part when I thought it was “pretty for pretty’s sake” and I wondered – is there such thing or phrase as “pretty for pretty’s sake” ? So I’ve searched it’s lyrics only to find out that it was “pity for pity’s sake!”

I’ve done another searching and found out that there was really a “pretty for pretty’s sake” phrase. And so again, it’s not only the song that keeps popping out of my head but also “PRETTY FOR PRETTY’S SAKE.”

Lady Gaga lets her ‘Hair’ down

Lady Gaga released another single from her ‘Born This Way’ album called ‘Hair.’ The single is a fist-pumping disco-themed track with a feel-good and self-celebratory vibe. And just like her ‘Edge of Glory’ track, there is also sax blowing by Clarence Clemons.


Though the 4 released singles from the album were catchy and intriguing, I’m still waiting for one song that will make me do a crazy dance like ‘Bad Romance’ or feel like crying like her ballad ‘Speechless.’

‘Born This Way’ will be out on May 23rd. Check the countdown timer on her website.

Let’s hear her say a story about her hair.

‘Hair’ is already out on iTunes.
