I am already won over. No need to try so hard.

As if I did not like Lady Gaga enough, we were watching a behind the scenes clip of the Love Game video shoot. Here is a screen grab:

La Gaga tells us that this sequence was inspired by Liliana Cavini's The Night Porter (1974) starring Charlotte Rampling and Dirk Bogarde

I love that she finds inspiration in such films.The Night Porter is a story of love gone completely wrong; obsession, sadomasochism, depravity, co-dependence... In a word, it is tragic.

OK, my Friday peaked early. I'm not sure if I should thank you or curse myself for looking at that first thing in the AM ;)

I live to swerve. ;-)

I like everything about Lady Gaga except her music.

@Hawanja - I understand. I hated Just Dance and Poker Face when I first heard them. She does have some clever lyrics, and actually plays piano quite well, which won me over. Now I listen to her perhaps too much. :-)

You know, she's slowly winning me over all the time. Have you heard her singing Paparazzi with just her piano? There's a few of her with just the piano and she is fucking amazing.
And I definitely appreciate that she is being a real artist about it all. She definitely gets lots of points.

Hi Pennie. There is a link to her doing Poker Face live, just piano at this post.
