Do you remember the times when Marilyn Manson was doing these edged – up videos that wouldn’t play on music channels but after a certain hour of the day? Oh, boy! It seems like another life altogether!
Now I was in some waiting room, waiting (duh!) and the TV in the corner was on some music channel. For the 30 minutes or so I waited there, I don’t recall seeing any female participant at or singing in a music video with a complete set of clothes on (pants, top etcetera). They were all singing in their undies! Pardon my lack of TV / musical culture, but compared to that, Marilyn Manson was a shy schoolboy!
I’ll cut this short, I fear my kids will read me one of these days and cease to communicate with me, labeling me with “antique” and moving on. But really? Lady Gaga’s Fame? Puh-lease! Don’t tell me you’re taking her seriously! Janet Jackson’s videos were better, and that’s from 16 years ago! Where’s the evolution? Where’s the riot of the new generation’s music revolution? Here, you know what? I’ll get over the disappointment of seeing Ridley Scott’s name in this (his label produced the video). After the jump, watch Scream! And then think Gaga is changing things around with her Fame… (oh, and if you think you can take edgy, you can try your hand with a little taste of old – school edge with Marilyn Manson’s Beautiful People here)
