If your pop music detectors just flew into red, it’s because the music video to the extended, remixed version of Beyonce’s “Video Phone” featuring Lady GaGa has just been dropped.
The wacky clip has more than a dozen costumes for the bodacious Sasha Fierce and GaGa, including a makeover that makes B’s stand for Bettie Page. It has a very Tarantino beginning, giving way to manic cyberculture trimmings, hair whipping, men with cameras for heads, men with bagged heads, motorcycles and Beyonce pretending to chew gum (to what effect?).
For those with fake plastic gun fetishes, this is your porn.
Resident HitFix music blogger Melinda Newman reviews the clip in our Insider Analysis box, there on the left. In the meantime, check out her review of the track itself.
The cut will be included in the deluxe version of Beyonce’s deluxe reissue of “I Am… Sasha Fierce,” due Nov. 23.
As previously reported, Beyonce is performing overseas right now, and joined her hubby Jay-Z and Kanye West on stage in London on Sunday.
