perhaps you can say i’m a bit slow at picking up on what’s going on in the music world, but i must say i know who lady gaga is since her first single ‘poker face’ was released… i remember watching mtv and seeing the video for the song being played till i was immuned to it… it was a catchy song but didn’t jump out at me for some reason… then just a couple of months back, i saw her performance at the mtv video music awards and was impressed and attracted to the single ‘paparazzi’ which she sang during the show and so went online to check out the video… and was somewhat hooked…

BUT it wasn’t until my sister told me about her latest single ‘bad romance’ and the video that was released with it that i began to truly appreciate the talent that is lady gaga… as we all know, lady gaga creates her own fashion style together with the creative team set up called ‘haus of gaga’ and i must say ‘bad romance’ is to me the definitive lady gaga video to date… all the clothes, materials used (latex outfits!) and accessories (bat on her head!!) just made me go ‘ZOMG’…

i must also share this video with you… shot before lady gaga became lady gaga… really love the two songs!

Captivated (Stefani Germanotta)

One look and I’m done
One glance from your eyes and I’m captivated
The taste of your skin
The warmth of your hungry lips has me so taken
And I love the way you can make me dance from miles away
When I’m with you I’m so sedated
I’m captivated by you.

You’re just like the wind cause
everything moves when you’re around
The sun is just like the sound of
your voice in the morning when you light my world up
And I love the way you can make me dance from miles away
When I’m with you I’m never jaded
I’m captivated

I’ll never stop believing in this crazy love we’re leading
Sugar hold me close and make me sweeter
I need you, I love you

So please show me that smile
make me laugh for just a little while
Then breathe me one breath
I only need one to fill the emptiness
And I love the way you can make me dance from miles away
It’s been so long but now I’ve waited and now
I’m captivated
