Lady GaGa is known for her scantily-clad outfits and risque performances, but in her latest video she even manages to surpass herself.
Lady Gaga lays to rest rumors that she’s a hermaphrodite and replaces them with visions of lesbian love in her latest music video “Telephone,” which was helmed by director Jonas Akerlund, who also directed Gaga’s “Paparazzi” video with True Blood hunk Alexander Skarsgard.
“I told you she didn’t have a dick,” one buff female prison guard tells another after stripping Lady Gaga in a cell in the video (check it below.) “Too bad,” remarks the other. Lady Gaga then struts her stuff in a barely-there thong with little space to hide anything along with a chorus of cons and later Beyoncé, who kills off a male lover with the help of Lady Gaga.
MTV dubbed the high-budget, 9-minute extravaganza a “hyperkinetic pop-culture joyride” with homages to films like Caged Heat and Kill Bill. In fact, Bill director Quentin Tarantino acted as a kind of consultant on the video. “There certainly is a Tarantino-inspired quality in the video,” Gaga explains to E! Online. “I was telling him about my concept for the video and he loved it so much he said, ‘You gotta use the Pussy Wagon'”— which is what Beyonce uses to whisk Gaga out of prison.
