The Jamie xx remix of "Rolling in the Deep" is hot as all get out.

I think Adele became overexposed because they were trying to promote her originality in looks and voice and song-writing.


feels like GaGa is on a break........I think she should try a slow song.

I don't have much to say in analysis of it, but I'd like to bring up my observations about Gaga's new video for "You and I."

This is one of her simplest singles to date...a piano based love song, the music is not going to turn any heads, it's not aggressive. It's actually very formulaic. And cheesy. (Not saying these are bad things, necessarily, btw.)

BUT...even for this simple-ass song, she decides she has to have a fucking really long and pretentious intro to the video with risque and "artsy" images. This video does not match the song whatsoever. For this cheesy pop love song, this would have been a good time to make a quick, maybe funny, maybe modest music video.

I don't know. It's like the whole "I need to make a big artsy statement!" thing is growing tiresome.

I still like her, though. Just sort of tossing this out there.

I agree. I liked that the video for Edge of Glory was so basic. it was refreshing.

I didn't even realize there was a video for You and I. I'm still not a fan of the song.

Yeah, the Edge of Glory video is basically what I was suggesting. I liked that one, too. So, she probably knows what she's doing.

I just didn't like the video for You and I. Didn't think it worked well alongside the tune.

And here I am talking shit about her choices, yet I'll still be watching on Sunday to see what weird shit she wears on the VMAs.

THE GODDAMN GAGA WINS AGAIN!

Oh, is that this weekend? I want to see the Britney tribute.

But damn, why waste time watching? I'll catch it on YouTube later.

It is this Sunday, indeed.

I can't help it, I'm way too fond of observing 21st century mainstream pop culture, so I will be there and watch every second of that shit live. It's my cross to bear.

I'm with you for some of the big award shows, but I've finally reached the point where the MTV ones are just too annoying.

I think this means I'm officially old.

I haven't watched the MTV video awards since 1992 when U2 appeared live via satellite from a Zoo TV show only to have the little twerp Dana Carvey playing along with them on the MTV stage in his Garth character. I had not seen a Zoo TV show yet at that time and so I really wanted to see U2 perform. I did not want to see frickin' Dana Carvey mugging and pretending to play drums with them. Gawd I was annoyed. And, yes, I am still bitter about it!

If I hear of a performance from Sunday's show that I want to watch I'll just watch it online afterwards. I love the internet.

I liked the 'Edge of Glory' video for its simplicity but I didn't expect her to do the same thing for her next video. But, still, my reaction after watching 'You and I' for the first time was "What did I just watch"?? Now that I've watched it a few more times I like it and I think it does have a connection to the song, albeit not a direct one.

Here's how I think the video connects to the song: "You and I" is about Gaga going back to her old boyfriend. This is the same ex-boyfriend about whom she wrote all her dark relationship songs such as 'Bad Romance' and 'Monster'. In 'You and I' she's downright gushy about how happy she is to be back with him but there's still a little bit of a darkness in it with the line "I'd rather die without you and I". But in the video I think she's really delving into the dark side of the previous relationship. My interpretation is that the guy isn't happy with her as she is and, really, neither is she. He's doing various things to try and change her but she just keeps becoming freakier and it nearly kills her. She finally leaves him and learns to love herself (literally making out with herself) and then returns to him because he apparently now accepts her as she is. They then get married and live happily ever after.

It's possible I've been thinking too much about this.

i don't love the edge of glory video. though i did like that she made a simple video. i just didn't think it was a good simple video, especially since that was the epic song off the album, so i thought it kinda needed an epic video. but to have a straightforward video from her was very refreshing.

but you and i is one that i thought did need a simpler video. as much as i like almost all of her videos, i hate the ridiculously over-the-topness (it's a word!) of some of her videos, where a four minute song is stretched to eight minutes with intros, outros, and the song stopping and starting randomly.

Rumor has it that Gaga will perform 'You and I' at the VMAs tonight as her male alter-ego who appeared in the video. So, if this is true (I hope it isn't), how long will it take for someone to accuse her of ripping off Annie Lennox?

i'm accusing that performance last night of being fucking stupid.

it takes a lot to make britney spears seem like a sympathetic figure... but yea, gaga has gone and done just that.

It's clever because we thought she was a man a couple years ago.
