Poll: With her new video, has Lady Gaga reached the overexposure tipping point?
Earlier today, Lady Gaga released the first of a reported two videos for her new single, "Born This Way." A seven minutes-plus, Fritz Lang-meets-Ridley Scott extravaganza of dancing, singing, and ponderous dystopian philosophizing, "Born This Way" confirms something we had recently been fearing: Gaga is trying way too hard.
Compare Gaga, who has been everywhere lately flogging her new disc (which isn't even out until May!), with her singles chart rival Britney Spears, who put the barest amount of effort into her new video, almost never does interviews and generally appears to have been replaced by a not-particularly lifelike hologram sometime in 2008. Say what you will about Britney, she would never film a video that included shots of a two-headed, albumen-covered Baby Britney emerging from her own uterus while a voiceover discussed the mitosis of the universe. Reader, she just wouldn't.
