It’s been said a hundred times before… that an artist could be the ‘new Madonna’. Well we reckon that Lady Gaga, yes little Stefania Germanotta from New York, might just be the one to succeed Ms Ciccone to the pOp throne. And if this video clip for her US single ‘Beautiful Dirty Rich’ is anything to go by, she’s more than certainly heading in the right direction. She’s got the look, she’s got the moves – and there’s nary a hint of falseness about her. And anyway – when was the last time you saw a pOp star in a video smokin’ a $20 bill!? (We assume it’s a $20 bill – we’re not that up with the US currency, y’see (someone from the States please correct us if we’re wrong!). She holds herself throughout this clip with such assuredness and such presence that we’d go so far as to say we don’t think we’ve seen more exciting pOp come out of the US for the best part of ten years. The bomb. (PS – The Aussie single ‘Poker Face’ hits the stores locally on October 25).
