Weekend Video




With two #1 hit singles, a platinum album and a talent and persona that have made her pop’s new princess, Lady Gaga appears to have come out of nowhere to grab the zeitgeist of the moment. (For the full backstory click here.)

One clear indication of this is the number of Lady Gaga tributes on YouTube - and having not done this for a while, I felt it was past time to do another of our tribute round-ups. This time to Gaga’s 2nd hit “Poker Face”.

Comments, please, on the one you like best! (Not counting the original above.)










And last, if you're not completely sick of the song, a highly alternate live version from the real Lady Gaga showing that none of these pop successes are accidental. There's real talent here.

I vote for the perfect haircut on the last little girl!:) It was kind of interesting to hear the acoustic version.

On the subject of photos, I was wondering if you might be able to do a post on how to price photos if you're starting out. Its a purely selfish request as I'm having some of my photos in my first exhibition in a few weeks time and I'm utterly confused at how to set a price! its all so complicated! And then there's the question of limited edition - I'm just starting out so it seems a little redundant to do limited editions when I might not even sell one print, but its the done thing and it looks professional! I know you know all about this and I respect your opinion. And I'm sure there are loads of other photographers in the same position who would be glad to read about it. I would be so grateful if you could help?! Thanks! :)

minigaga is awesome!! but the two ladies together were fabulous too.

not totally convinced of gaga's talent but i'm just happy she hasn't gone full tilt towards plastic surgery. once in a while it's nice to be reminded of the scale of human beauty in the entertainment complex post-idol.

Can I please cast my vote for Gaga's own alternate version? She has a voice, that's for sure.

But if I have to pick from the others...I'm going with contestant #3, because mini Gaga is a bit creepy. However, the first guy gets a honorable mention for crazy facial expressions.

The young man lip syncing was particularly funny. So funny in fact that I forwarded your post to several of my friends. Very much enjoyed Lady G's acoustic session.

I can't sit through the amateur covers from youtube. I don't really like the song. However, the acoustic version is good. I would probably have written her off had I not seen that.

Saw her the first time on SNL this season. Prior to seeing her, I thought she would be a guy in drag. Seriously.

I love music but am not a big fan of hip hop and I think alot of the current performers are over produced, over hyped, over rated. Don't get me going on which ones. It's usually a question of style over substance. That being said, you really need to give some of these people time to develop. Christina Aguilera, mentioned as one of Lady GaGa's influences, is a great example of that.

We'll see...

Personally i liked the acoustic guitar singing boy.
But thats probably coz it sounded the least like Lady Gaga.

Why don't you marry her! Let's a agree to disagree... I think she is sooo lame. And the live version helps prove it.

Letterpress said...

ivana and jess reeled me in when one of them pulled her fish face early on. They have my vote.

As far a Lady Gaga--well, let's just say I'm feeling older and older as I watch these things. Sigh.
