It has been more than six months now since Lady GaGa released The Fame Monster upon the world, and it’s clear that her dominance on the pop charts has only been cemented by the diversity of sounds and influences that she incorporates into her ever-expanding palate. While The Fame was primarily a RedOne-driven vibe, Monster is much more sonically diverse, even if lyrically it doesn’t stray too much from the themes of its predecessor. I mean, who would have expected a tribute to Ace of Base on a Lady GaGa record? Then again, who even knows what to expect from GaGa anymore?
So the video for Alejandro will premiere next week, but the Lady will be on Larry King this evening, and reports have her bringing along a clip from the video. Her folks have really done a great job of promoting videos, although I wonder about the need for these clips to promote singles, as they come out well after the singles are ascending the charts. That can only meant that she must actually LIKE making videos, which is refreshing after hearing so many artists talk about videos being a necessary evil. Here’s a preview of tonight’s interview where GaGa talks about the Lupus rumors, as well as what was in the works with Michael Jackson. Gotta love the Larry King tribute outfit.
I haven’t heard anything official about the next single from The Fame Monster, but if I ruled the world, it would be a no-brainer that “Monster” would finally see a formal release. David Fudge, the guy behind the “Party in the F.I.P” video that caused a stir a few months back, put together a pretty impressive clip that has a “Monster” for just about anybody’s taste.
