My reviews/opinon of Gaga's music, videos, and her outfits

LoveGame

The song was actually written by Lady gaga in January 2008. “LoveGame” is about the implication of a kiss (“I wanna kiss you”), when you met someone on the dancefloor, and you kiss them. This kiss can lead to either falling in love, or just a quick fuck, and never again speaking to the guy or girl. In an interview Gaga said that her inspiration for the line, “Let’s have some fun this beat is sick, I wanna take a ride on your disco stick.” “ 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.” I have talked about the Disco Stick before.

The music video for this song was started being made around January 2009 but was released February 13, 2009. The setting is New York. The video mainly takes place in a subway station.   The video starts with three men moving through Times Square. They open a man-hole with the cover “Haus of Gaga”. Gaga is then shown naked with blue and purple paint and glitter on her body, frolicking with two men who has the words “Love” and “Fame” etched on their hair. She carries her trademark ‘disco stick’ and wears chain linked glasses made of barbed wire. The chorus starts with Gaga along with her dancers progressing through the subway and dancing down a staircase. Her trademark dogs, two harlequin Great Danes, are also shown on top of the staircase. This next scene shows Gaga in make-shift kissing and caressing. As the camera pans from right to left the inspector changes from a man to woman in each frame. Gaga said, “This is all part of a movement. My artistry is much deeper than fashion or anything like that. I love pop music, and I want to bring it back. People are truly hungry for this. They generally miss the ’90s and the superfans flooding Times Square, crying and wailing and doing anything to see the fingernail of a star. I want that back, and [the ‘LoveGame’ video] is just another move towards that. ‘LoveGame’ is a genuine New York lifestyle video. It’s got that feeling of ‘gay, black New York,’ of inclusion and glamour,” I wanted to really bring forth the girl that I was four years ago, and I wanted to put it in the setting of the underground subway. I worked with Joseph Kahn, and he did an amazing job. He didn’t just capture the fashion; he captured the artist.”

 

This video and song is soo interesting and fun. It has a sexy flare to it that attracts people. It is so amazing, the choreography is so unique and interesting.

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.
