Someone just told me Lady Gaga was number 1. I kinna feel behind the times as I don't know that much about this woman. I have seen numberous pictures of her in pvc leggins and big gold bows and fully appreciated her look...however music had managed to slip past me.
So I just watched the video for Just Dance on youtube. I first noticed the Skins -esque video by Melina Matsoukas, who has done a host of new artist like Katy Perry. I am a fan of the high contrast look so its pretty good. but overall, the song is disapointing. The base line is cool and kinna catchy, but she sounds like Gwen Stefani/Britney/Nelly Furtado/Every other recent artist so I have already forgotten the song. Shame the bold look doesnt match the tunezz. Who bought it anyway?
It is truly an MTV song as without the video and enlistment of Melina Matsoukas I doubt she would have sold so many tracks. I'm not one to focus on the negative though...so here's some cool shots from the vid (oh and I've got to say - what an obvious cliche to try to start a trend with the whole hand over one eye thing!)but the pink coat is wicked! I never say no to check either.
