Lady Gaga is truly unstoppable as a music icon! In my opinion, this is her best music video yet. It’s over 8 minutes and I could not take my eyes from it.
Everyone seems to like comparing LG to Madonna, and there are a number of obvious similarities to be observed. I find “Alejandro to be hauntingly similar to Madonna’s “La Isla Bonita”, but the video reminds me of Madonna’s “Like a Prayer”. Both feature imagery that is likely to be considered sacrilegious. Those of you old enough may remember how much controversy was stirred by “Like a Prayer”, particularly with the Catholic church. I don’t think the Catholic faithful will like “Alejandro” any better.
If you watch closely toward the end of the video, you will even see Gaga sporting a “big pointy bra”, a fashion statement made famous by Madonna.
What I find particularly interesting is the number of extremely negative comments from readers in the following NYDailyNews.com post, calling the video garbage, but at the time that I voted, 76% of poll respondents said the video was “awesome”. I guess that just goes to show how polarizing LG is with the general public….you either love her or you hate her. For me, I LOVE her!!!
