This years MTV Video Awards is going to be off the hook. Lady Gaga , who’s leading the way with most nominations is competing against Katy Petty, Beyonce, Taylor Swift, and Kesha for Best Female Video. The two fan favorites are: Lady Gaga for Bad Romance or Katy Perry for California Gurls.
In a recent interview, Lady Gaga revealed what the lyrics meant in her hit song, “Bad Romance.” The song inspired by an Alfred Hitchcock film in the verse, “I want your psycho, your vertigo shtick. Want you in my rear window, baby you’re sick.” She stated, “What I’m really trying to say is I want the deepest, darkest, sickest parts of you that you are afraid to share with anyone because I love you that much.”
A killer song, the futuristic “Bad Romance” video is a CGI-infused, stylish romp through Lady Gaga’s warped love affair. She takes us from spooky to sexy in a matter of minutes, but in the end one thing’s for sure — don’t mess with Lady Gaga.
On Katy Perry, “California Gurls” is a take off from the Beach Boys song, with Snoop Dogg making a guest appearance in the video. Fun and sexy, When West Coast girl Katy Perry takes a playful trip through candy land, Snoop Dogg and his gummy bear army don’t stand a chance against ruining her good time.
Both are incredible videos. If Astrochicks had to vote, we would pick “Bad Romance.” We like the inspiration behind the song and the visuals are outrageous. Don’t forget to vote, MTV Video Awards will air on September 12, 2010.
