From the moment Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” danced through the radio airwaves, her millions of monsters worldwide have been eagerly and anxiously waiting for the music video debut of the hit single. The wait was finally over on Thursday, March 11 when E! News exclusively premiered the epic video, which features pop superstar Beyonce.
“Telephone” is the second single from Lady Gaga’s platinum album The Fame Monster.
The video can be watched VEVO.com and LadyGaga.com so fans can view it again right away. VEVO will also offer the ability to watch the video with lyrics.
“What I like about it is it’s a real true pop event,” Lady Gaga said about the “Telephone” video in a February interview with KIIS-FM and E!’s Ryan Seacrest. “When I was younger I was always excited when there was a big giant event happening in pop music and that’s what I wanted this to be.”
Gritty, erotic and wildly fierce, this nine-minute video features Beyonce and is helmed by famed music video director Jonas Akerlund. Rich with Gaga’s unique dance stylings, iconic costume design and unworldly hair and make-up, this is far from your typical music video.
Lady Gaga has said that the video for “Telephone” picks up where “Paparazzi” left off but will surpass its predecessor. In the new video, Gaga’s on-screen chemistry with Beyonce transforms the song from a popular dance floor gem to a raw and explosive piece of art. It is the second time the two entertainers have collaborated for a visual adventure, first on Beyonce’s “Video Phone” and now on Lady Gaga’s “Telephone.”
