Starring Lady Gaga

Steven has been playing and singing Lady Gaga songs around the house for months now, and I'm finally beginning to understand his love of the Ga. He's more interested in her as a performance artist than I am, but I share his appreciation for her music. My current favorites, "Paparazzi" and "Alejandro," are both extremely smart pop compositions with hooks so sweet they give you a toothache. Also, the "Paparazzi" video is amazing:

Check out the costumes and makeup, especially in the scene where (spoiler alert!) Gaga poisons her boyfriend. Her black lipstick! Her honeybee-colored outfit! Her boyfriend's metallic eyepatch! I never tire of seeing her smile as she drops the powder in his drink.
