Well, the whole (homosexual) world has lost it’s shit over Lady Gaga Featuring Beyonce “Telephone”.
Well, every Homosexual under 45 it seems. Which lead me to find this following blog comment absolutely hilarious, poignant, and quite sad all at the same time:
“Gay Men would dance to an Anita Bryant song if it had a dance beat attached to it.”
And I thought, beyond the 9 minute “movie” that halfway made sense, but has all been done before, from full on movies like Women in Prison and the Caged Heat movies, to Michael Jackson’s Thriller with a bit of Thelma & Louise and the Pussywagon thrown in for good measure.
What does it all matter that for 5 of the 9 minutes there’s a rather meaningless, uninspired song that just fills out the background and gives a chance for a Choreographed dance routine.
No soul, no pulse, but people (well again, Gay men) eat it up.
Again the profound sadness of the condition of the modern homosexual and it’s connection and way of filtering pop culture, versus the lenses of the generations of those before us.
If this is what passes for camp: Vain, product placed, violence filled witless, and no parody or in-joke on the song that inspires the visual performance, what feels like forced ridiculousness, planting tongue firmly in cheek without an ounce of sincerity.
Basically added up to wasting 9 minutes of my Thursday night.
Then again, like the quote says, chances are the modern homosexual is just as blind in celebrating someone that “Celebrates” them that it’s one massive circle jerk of affirmation, without actually wondering about artistic significance or satisfaction.
Or maybe I’m trying too hard to have art move me?
Because I don’t get how showing up at a Gay Marriage rally makes you a good singer, a strong songwriter, or an excellent performer that will hold my attention past a commerical.
Uh, and I have to say it, I’d listen to that Anita Bryant track over anything Lady GaGa anyday…
