Another celebrity calls out Lady Gaga’s over-the-top style.
By: Amanda Anderson
onny Osmond is the latest celebrity to publicly address his growing discontentment with Lady Gaga’s new video “Telephone,” which also features Pop heavyweight Beyonce like we’ve never seen her before. While the music video premiered only a couple of weeks ago, it has now reached over a billion web views. The song may be a hit on the Billboard charts, but it’s controversial nature has caused quite a stir. Many question rather Lady Gaga (and Beyonce) may have gone too far.
Osmond took to the press and said the following concerning the music video:
“Unlike 20 years ago, in today’s modern, viral world in which content becomes
instantaneously available irrespective of age, I wonder whether the music
industry might need to rethink its marketing policies with regard to making an
explicit music video containing profanity, sexual exploitation, nudity, and
graphic violence available to anyone with Internet access. I wouldn’t want my child to watch this video.”
Fans are even complaining about a recent painting (created by a Lady Gaga fan) depicting both stars as lesbian lovers.
While we all expect Lady Gaga to push the envelope (even Kanye West has proclaimed her to be this generation’s Madonna), I’m not sure if fans are too enthusiastic to see Beyonce join the ride.
Just last week, singer India Arie took to Twitter
to question Lady Gaga’s raw image.
Regardless of the controversy, Telephone continue sit pretty on the charts and remain one of the most viewed Youtube videos of all time.
