Lady Gaga’s New Video ‘The Most Popular Ever’
Lady Gaga’s new music video Telephone is already the most popular music video ever, according to some reports.
An exceptionally strong statement when one considers the impact that Michael Jackson’s Thriller had upon its release in 1983, but one that is supported by figures that boast a staggering 14 million hits in the three days following its debut last Thursday.
Only an edited version of the nine minute video – in which Gaga is stripped by a couple of prison guards and bound in crime-scene tape in the first of a string of erotic scenes – can be shown on MTV.
“I wanted to take a decidedly pop song with quite a shallow meaning and turn it into something deeper,” said Lady Gaga when speaking about her creation.
