Bonus Round: Lady Gaga vs. The Eurythmics!

I'm not going to lie to you: I love Lady Gaga. Not enough to buy tickets to see her in Ottawa in March, and not even her music really, but I love the spectacle that her life is. I love that she takes fashion risks, that her whole life is a performance.

I spent a big chunk of my last Sunday morning watching the video for "Bad Romance" over and over again...

And then The Boy pointed out that it is bears distinct similarities to video for The Eurythmics' "Missionary Man".

It's interesting: the same medical/monster themes, but while the Gaga video is much cleaner and visually sanitised, it is definitely much more sexually charged.

Although Annie Lennox in that catsuit? Yes please.

What are your thoughts?


  1. Nice to have met you at fashion week :D I like a few gaga songs, but I'm a HUGE fan of Annie Lennox!
