There are so many references, influences and symbolic moments here to last you a damn life time. You’ll definitely see some ‘Vogue’ moments, a splash of David Bowie, and lots of atrocious bowl cuts. “Alejandro” even gives sacrilegious a whole new meaning. Fingers crossed this video doesn’t make it to my grandma.
I personally think this music video is trying way too hard to one-up its predecessors (Bad Romance is still my favorite…if I had to choose). And the song just sucks already, so I’m not enthusiastic about “Alejandro” or the gay erotica-skeevy-whatsits.
As Celebuzz put it: “Someone is definitely getting raped here. I just can’t figure out if it’s GaGa, the dancer, or my brain.”
