new music video for "G.U.Y." from her album Artpop
, is yet another insulting stab at feminism, sex, and art. In a nutshell, a feathered and shot miss Gaga drags herself out of a ditch and crawls to her palace (Hearst Castle) where she's revived with a net of flowers in her swimming pool. The newly resurrected Lady Gaga then serenades Greek God Himeros in a weird compilation of dance numbers ending in her cloning and distributing the perfect "guy", which according to her is apparently a hybrid of Jesus, Gandhi, Michael Jackson, and John Lennon. Additional oddities included: the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills pretending to play instruments, Gaga pretending to experience pain and hardship, and Gaga rolling around on various surfaces.
It seems the Queen of Monsters has flown too close to the sun, and alas her brown crusty wax wings have melted and thrown her into a ditch of money hungry CEOs. If she weren't such a big fan of herself I'd say its probably supposed to be a symbolic representation for her career. As a female viewer I'm honestly confused why I should be bowing down to someone who does such a poor job of balancing female subservience with empowerment. Also, I don't believe the argument for replacing CEOs with descendants of Mahatma Lennon and Jesus Jackson has been sufficiently supported. No doubt, it's a lovely thought, but I have a feeling it would have some poor economic repercussions. Note: this video is probably going to have some poor artistic repercussions on my intelligence. Thankfully we we're given five minutes of closing credits to decompress...
