Beyoncé Video Phone

17 November 2009

Beyoncé and Lady Gaga both look amazing collaborating in Queen B's glossy, sleek new 'Video Phone' music video. The extended version, released next week as a remix to her original I am... Sasha Fierce album track, features the two pop singers dancing together in a classic Hype Williams-directed video showing two strong women posing to a stripped down minimal beat, with pin-up styling, high-contrast vivid colours and synchronised dance routines.

Beyoncé kicks off aggressively marching down the street a la Reservoir Dogs with a gang and continues to strut around with a huge toy gun through the rest of the video.

She's the 21st century Madonna; Queen of reinvention, rocking out so many different looks in every shoot/ video/ release artwork - I love the rockabilly 40s Bettie Page fringe and printed sequined tee.


Gaga - thankfully not in upstage mode - ditches the try-hard, sexed-up outfits in tribute to Beyoncé, reportedly saying 'I want to do you in your video, and I want to dress up like you'. She pops up halfway through, wearing a matching white leotard and joins in a matchy-matchy dance routine on some chairs. It's a tried-and-tested formula, and beats B's collaboration with Shakira in 2007.  Tune.



Video Phone was released today from I am... Remix single with Gaga is released 29 November
