Living Dress

The living dress was made by Vinilla Burnham but designed by Gaga. It was debuted in 2010. Right before the dress was shown Gaga tweeted,   “2nite Haus of Gaga debuts “the living dress” inspired by Hussein Chalayan, as a fashion moment to be performed in “pop show” at Monsterball.” Gaga uses the dress for her Monster Ball Tour. The dress was actually finished just two hours before it was debuted. It took Vinilla Burnham six weeks to make the dress. The fabrics used was used to created the dress are, stainless steel, various forms of nylon fabrics, sheet and rods, different weights of plastic sheeting and coutil for the corset. The dress is actually extremely heavy if you lift it up but when worn the weight is distributed evenly.

In the beginning of a performance where the Living Dress is used, two pieces from Gaga’s breasts cover her face, and, in the Monster Ball, the pieces move out of her face when she starts singing. The headdress opens and closes, and body of the dress opens and closes, revealing her legs, and the train of the dress moves up and down. Gaga says the dress is like, “just like a dragonfly coming out of its shell.”

I love this dress. When I saw Gaga live the dress took my breath away. The fact that it moved astound me. When I saw the dress the stage lifted up and Gaga was their singing, then the dress started to move.

Poker Face (music video)

The “Poker Face” was premiered on NewNowNext PopLab, on October 29, 2008. The video was filmed at “Bwin PokerIsland”. Bwin also provided the poker equipment, like the poker table, the cards, and the chips. An interesting fact about the video is they originally wanted to shoot the video at a beach in Ibiza. They decided against it at the last minute. Gaga explains that the purpose or the main idea of the video is, “I knew I wanted it to be sexy, so I thought no pants, because that’s sexy, […]And I knew I wanted it to be futuristic, so I thought shoulder pads, because that’s my thing.” The music video takes place by a pool, located on an ocean side villa. The video begins with Lady Gaga emerging out of the pool with her Black crystal catsuit (which I have talked about before).

The story for the video is, Gaga attends a wild party where every man and woman tries their luck on a strip poker game. The party gets wilder when all the party’s guests strip down to their underwear, dance around, and share kisses with each other. The next scene is a lounge sofa with a man and Gaga featuring a hair bow with a nude bodysuit. The following one is Gaga dancing poolside with her dancers in a futuristic turquoise leotard with shoulder pads.

 

 

The lyrics for the song are as follows,

Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah

I wanna hold em’ like they do in Texas plays, (Ay)
Fold em’ let em’ hit me, raise it, baby stay with me
(I love it)
LoveGame intuition play the cards with spades to start,
And after he’s been hooked,
I’ll play the one that’s on his heart

Oh, woah, oh, oh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh
I’ll get him hot, show him what I’ve got
Oh, woah, oh, oh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh
I’ll get him hot, show him what I’ve got

Can’t read my, can’t read my
No he can’t read my poker face
(She got me like nobody)
Can’t read my, can’t read my
No he can’t read my poker face
(She got me like nobody)

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)

I wanna roll with him a hard pair we will be (Ay)
A little gambling is fun when you’re with me
(I love it)
Russian Roulette is not the same without a gun
And baby when it’s love,
if its not rough it isn’t fun (fun)

Oh, woah, oh, oh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh
I’ll get him hot, show him what I’ve got
Oh, woah, oh, oh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh
I’ll get him hot, show him what I’ve got

Can’t read my, can’t read my
No he can’t read my poker face
(She got me like nobody)
Can’t read my, can’t read my
No he can’t read my poker face
(She got me like nobody)

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)

(Mum mum mum mah)
(Mum mum mum mah)

I won’t tell you that I love you
Kiss or hug you
Cause I’m bluffin’ with my muffin
I’m not lying
I’m just stunnin’
With my love-glue-gunning (Mah)

Just like a chick in the casino
Take your bank before I pay you out
I promise this, promise this
Check this hand ’cause I’m marvelous

Can’t read my, can’t read my
No he can’t read my poker face
(She got me like nobody)
Can’t read my, can’t read my
No he can’t read my poker face
(She got me like nobody)

Can’t read my, can’t read my
No he can’t read my poker face
(She got me like nobody)
Can’t read my, can’t read my
No he can’t read my poker face
(She got me like nobody)

Can’t read my, can’t read my
No he can’t read my poker face
(She got me like nobody)
Can’t read my, can’t read my
No he can’t read my poker face
(She got me like nobody)

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face

Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)

The music video for “Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)” premiered on PerezHilton.com on February 3, 2009. The theme of the music video is 1950’s, futuristic, Italian-American. An interesting fact about this video is that they shoot it back to back with love game music video. The music video was shoot in Los Angeles. When asked about the video Gaga said, “I wanted to show a different side of myself — perhaps a more domestic girly side. And I wanted to create beautiful, stunning ’50s futuristic fashion imagery that would burn holes in everyone’s brains. ”

I really like this music video and the song because it’s different then her more popular songs like, poker face. It’s so slow and calming but cheerful. When I listen to this song I feel like people should be dancing with the song. You can really hear Gaga’s voice in that song.

The first 20 seconds are mainly full of camera shots of different men, Lady Gaga and the city. The first main scene depicts Gaga with some friends laughing and joking in a restaurant while Gaga stand on the seat. Gaga then comes from around the block walking with her friends in pace and singing in the camera. She is shown in a bed asleep, and pulling the cover off to reveal pink high-heeled shoes. GaGa sings and cooks for a man in a house while dancing. She is also shown ironing clothes while the man is on the phone screaming at someone. The two harlequin Great Danes who appear at the start of her “Poker Face” music video, also appear in this one. Finally she lies on a sofa with her legs up on the man. She is seen kissing a man passionately with her “Beats by Dr. Dre headphones” on. One of the last scene shows her in a yellow dress made of flowers and wearing a yellow watch (Daffodil dress) while singing to the song with a unique hairstyle which shows her hair pulled up and folded over. Then the camera quickly goes back to her in bed.

The lyrics to the song is as follows,

Cherry cherry, boom boom
Gaga

Boy we’ve had a real good time
And I wish you the best
On your way
Eh, eh

I didn’t mean to hurt you
I never thought we’d fall
Out of place
Eh, eh

I had something that I love long long
But my friends keepa’ tellin’ me that something’s wrong

Then I met someone
And eh! There’s nothing else I can say

Eh, eh
Eh, eh
There’s nothing else I can say
Eh, eh
Eh, eh
I wish he never looked at me that way
Eh, eh
Eh, eh
There’s nothing else I can say
Eh, eh
Eh, eh

Not that I don’t care about you
Just that things got so compliquées
Eh, eh

I met somebody cute and funny
Got each other and that’s money eh
Eh, eh

I had something that I love long long
But my friends keep telling me that something’s wrong
Then I met someone
And eh!
Cherry cherry, boom boom

All I can say is eh, eh

Bubble

Gaga has a bubble dress and a bubble piano, I will be discussing both of them. The Bubble dress is in and a creation of The Haus of Gaga. The dress was created by the haus around the time the song Paparazzi was released. Gaga has worn this outfit many times during the Fame Tour. The bubbles on the dress aren’t real bubbles, they are made of plastic. She made a smaller version of the dress that is a vest. The vest is easier to get out of since Gaga makes many outfit changes during her performances. The bubble dress was on SNL before during a skit with Andy Samberg.  The plot line for the skit  is Samberg realizing that he is wearing the same Bubble Dress (for the SNL after-party) as Gaga, leading to an uncomfortable exchange. At the end of the skit, they find that Lorne Michaels has also encountered the same problem, wearing a tie with bubble attachments. A replica was made for an episode of Glee for the character Tina.

The bubble piano was inspired by the bubble dress but made by a different designer. It is filled with plastic bubbles and lights up. The outfit and piano is quite amazing. When it first debuted it was on most popular magazines. She modeled with the dress for over fifteen photo shoots. The dress and piano is so unique, I doubt that anyone else would want a bubble or piano.

Disco Stick

The Disco Stick is one of the first creations of the Haus of Gaga in 2008. It’s first appearance was at clubs. The term “Disco Stick”

was used in a catch phrase in a bar. Gaga explains it as, “I was in a bar in New York and I said to this guy I was hitting on ‘I wanna take a ride on your disco stick’ and he just started laughing.” In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine Gaga explained the meaning and the inspiration for the song “LoveGame“. One line that they asked about was “Let’s have some fun this beat is sick / I wanna take a ride on your disco stick.” Gaga’s answer to the question was,  “It’s another of my very thoughtful metaphors for a cock. I was at a nightclub, and I had quite a sexual crush on somebody, and I said to them, ‘I wanna ride on your disco stick’. The next day, I was in the studio, and I wrote the song in about four minutes. When I play the song live, I have an actual stick — it looks like a giant rock-candy pleasuring tool — that lights up.

Gaga actually made her own disco stick with Dada (I have talked about Dada or Mathew in an earlier post). On the top is crushed acrylic plastic formed into a dome like shape. The inside of it consists of 18 small LEDs which let off the bright blue-ish white-ish light. inside the chrome pole are batteries, which can be accessed by unscrewing the bottom part of the disco stick.To turn the light on, there is a small back button. It then has an thick long black tube to protect it, which has crushed frozen acrylic at the top. Since the creation of the Disco Stick, Lady Gaga has used when performing LoveGame. The Disco Stick was seen in The Fame Ball tour in the songs: Just Dance, LoveGame and occasionally Beautiful, Dirty Rich. In The Monster Ball it’s only used during LoveGame. But it was used as a video camera in the new version of The Monster Ball where Gaga is doing a skit with fans.

In a skit on Saturday Night Live, Gaga and Madonna get into a staged cat-fight, over who is more popular and attractive. During the struggle, Madonna yells: “What the hell is a Disco Stick?“, referencing the controversy over the item’s concept.
