After watching Lady Gaga's latest video, "Telephone," featuring Beyonce (or most of it), it finally occurred to me how to explain Lady Gaga. Imagine if Madonna and Sir Elton John had a love child. That love child would be Lady Gaga (nee Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta).
Seriously, watch Madonna's video "Hung Up" then watch Lady Gaga's "Telephone" (which now contains a warning and requires you to confirm you are over 18 on YouTube).
See a resemblance?
Now watch Lady Gaga performing with Elton John at the Grammy's -- and tell me she is not his (and Madonna's) musical love child.
Need more proof? Check out Elton John's "I'm Still Standing" music video:
Elton John - I'm Still Standing
I rest my case.
Btw, if you want to see some PG-13-rated Lady Gaga videos, click here. And no, we have no plans to go see Lady Gaga after seeing "Telephone." Definitely not appropriate for an 11-year-old (or her prudish mother).
