We all remember it like it was yesterday, of course. The “Bad Romance” video was THE seismic event of 2009 – a watershed moment for music and art and and fashion and pop culture. I’m going out on a limb and say: It’s release was one of THE DEFINING EVENTS of the millennia, right up there with 9/11 and the election of Barack Obama. It took a star and made her a LEGEND. And suddenly every other artist realize had to reevaluate what they were doing, as a new day dawned in music videos. It’s true. Think about it. Has ANYONE done ANYTHING since then that had the same impact? I THINK NOT.
Watch as Lady Gaga discusses the making of the iconic video as part of the VevoCertified series. Fascinating, fascinating stuff. Highlights: Lady Gaga discussing the birth of her little mosters (calling them “a bit rabid”), and her reaction to receiving the Alexander McQueen outfits for the video.
