GaGa has always put product placements in her videos.

The Heartsbeats, Beats by Dre, Virgin Mobile, and Polaroid are all things that GaGa is part of.

What are honey buns?

Little Debbies are incredibly bad for you junk food / snack cakes. They taste pretty good though.

Honey buns are just a cinnamon roll made by the Little Debbie company.

A soft golden pastry baked with a touch of cinnamon and a glaze of icing. Individually wrapped six to a carton.

I'm worried for Gaga because Telephone (the song) isn't on the same level as her previous works. I think that's why she felt she had to do this big 9 minute video.

You don't need to feel worried for her, the video is getting millions of views daily.

Also her record company probably made her release this song because it had Beyonce on it, and they wanted to do a duo once again just like they did for Beyonce's vid.

I would of released Monster or Speechless as the second single but I am not the record company.

Whew you're a hater :rolls:.

This sure is the end of the hype. Quickest video ever to reach a million views, all over entertainment world blogs, and so many people wanted to view the premier online it made the websites showing it crash. Sure sounds like the hype is ending.

Um, I don't know, but you know she's getting talked every day, and no matter what's said about her, at least she's talked about, she should feel worried when people grow indifferent to her.

Gaga posted this on twitter earlier, and it does an interesting breakdown on the video, especially when it comes to analyzing the product placement.

Gaga is much more intelligent than people give her credit to be.

Apoleb
Mar 15th, 2010, 07:28 AM
I find it incredibly ironic that in a video where she's supposedly making a social commentary about the inundation of technology and advertisement, she ends up inundating us with advertisements AND making money out of it. Whatever "aritstic merit" there's to that, it strikes me as hypocritical.

It's also tiring to see her stans running around claiming how amazing she is, before even bothering to understand what she's trying to say.

Which is what GaGa and her management want you to believe, a bit like Beyonce and all her 'writing credits'.

I know right, I have no idea. The last popstar that was pushed as hard as GaGa is pushing herself was Britney and look what happened to her, but at least Britney held on to her sanity for a few years before being carted off to the loony bin, GaGa is barely a year and half into her career :confused:

:lol:

But it HAS been blocked to non-members and minors on youtube. It was flagged as inappropriate. I guess because it has LESBIANS (OMG!!!), "nudity", and a mass-murder scene. I feel like it is so campy though that none of these things can actually been seen as dangerous or corrupting to youth :shrug:

The Madonna video I mentioned earlier is located here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYwgG2oyUbA (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYwgG2oyUbA)

The video is so cartoony I don't understand why people take it so seriously...GaGa is harmless escapism, not some second coming of the devil sent to corrupt the youth. Conservatives need to realise that 'God-fearing' kids are gonna have sex, drink and do drugs whether GaGa's around or not...look at Jamie Lynn Spears!
