Okay, we’ve seen some decidedly decadent video clips throughout the first half of 2009, but we’re not afraid to tip our hats to Lady Gaga for the clip to what’s bound to be her next Aussie single ‘Paparazzi’. The singer, who’s currently touring Australia with the Pussycat Dolls, has pulled out all the stops to create something that’s very very grand – more of a short film than a video clip, if you will. Set in a delicious castle, surrounded by incredible opulence, we find the singer cavorting on a bed with some handsome stranger, bathed in a sea of dollar notes from the United States Of Lady Gaga. The stranger takes her out onto the balcony where (wouldn’t you know it) she’s snapped by the… PAPARAZZI! You only need to watch this seven-plus minute clip to realise that Gaga and the people around her are acutely aware that she possesses everything she needs to carve out a long-term career in pOp. She’s the real deal and this clip is pure class. Could the real next Madonna have finally arrived?
