Go take a look at Lady Gaga’s new video for Edge of Glory. I’ll be over here.
I’m reading a lot of hate about the latest video from Gaga–everything from “what’s with the 80′s SAX player?”
I’ll tell you what’s up, kids–that’s 69 year old CLARENCE CLEMONS from Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. Look it UP, Donna. (By the way, The Big Man suffered a stroke earlier this week and is still listed in serious condition.)
I’ll agree that Edge of Glory didn’t give me goosebumps like Bad Romance or Born This Way, but I appreciate the 80′s feel of the video. Oh, nostalgia. It reminded me of MJ’s Billie Jean, Tina Turner’s What’s Love Got to Do With It, and even Terri Nunn from the 80′s band Berlin.
I also appreciate the low-budget sound stage feel–the fire escape and window, dancing down a dark, wet city street–you know, like three-quarters of every 80′s video ever to air on MTV. I believe it’s called an HOMAGE?
Do your homework before you start bitching about something you clearly know nothing about.
