Meryl Streep...I love you. I have ever since I saw The Deer Hunter for the first time in high school, but, Meryl...no. Please don't cover Lady Gaga again. I love Lady Gaga as well. The Fame and The Fame Monster are two of my favorite top 40 pop albums ever made. But, Meryl's cover of "Bad Romance" for her latest film, the musical Ricki and the Flash, is a miss. Meryl doesn't have the vocal range anymore -- not that I'm particularly sure she had it in Mamma Mia either -- and the arrangement of this cover zaps everything that made Gaga's original so special to begin with. Check it out below and make up your own mind on whether this take on the Lady Gaga classic works. I'm not a fan.
