I’ve been watching music videos again between researching for work and other projects. I’m glad that video is still a medium where musicians can express themselves artistically. Madonna, Bjork, and other women have a number of visually striking ones; lately, it’s Lady Gaga’s videos that have been inspiring repeat views.
It’s great that she’s not a boring artist, and that her videos showcase hypnotic choreography, flashy imagery and offbeat costumes. I find her rifle-bra (below) cool. Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” vid, which appeared a few months later, has the wacky singer attaching whipped cream-blasting cans to her bra. Not as cool, but still attention-grabbing.
Anyway, pictured below Gaga are Florence Welch from
