Lady GaGa is a Killer
At least in this video. She and Beyonce embark on a crime spree to the tune of "Telephone", which is the current #1 song on Mel's Weekly Top 20.
This music video is a 10-minute mini movie that starts off in prison and ends up in the dessert with Lady GaGa and Beyonce driving away to who knows where. The producers spent a lot of money to make this video as it contains several sets and utilizes several dozen extras for the prison and diner scenes. If I had to rate this video on a scale of 0 to 10, with 10 being all time classic, I'd give it about a 7 for its high production value, but demerits for its rather negative message of murder and mayhem. The video is definitely not for the "easily offended" viewer. If it were a movie the uncensored version would be rated "R" and this "clean" version would probably still render the same rating.
You have been warned. View at your own risk.

Lady GaGa and Beyonce replace Lady Antebellum on the top spot this week. This is the first week at #1 for "Telephone". The song has been on the chart for several months now. A new Lady GaGa song is waiting in the wings, possibly to debut by next week.
There are no new songs added to the chart this week. Positions change with droppers bering "Imma Be" by Black Eyed Peas and "Bad Romance" by Lady GaGa. The latter has been on the top 20 since before November 2009. It held the top spot on the charts for 5 weeks last year.
Moving Up: Colbie Caillat up 3 from #11 to #8 with "I Never Told You"; Caro Emerald up from #17 to #11 with "Back It Up," and Uncle Kracker up 2 from #14 to #12 with "Smile", a latecomer to my chart having made its run on other charts late last year. Ringo Starr moves up 1 with "Walk With You" from #10 to #9. He last hit the top 10 in 2008 with "Liverpool 8".
Moving Down: Lady GaGa with "Bad Romance" down from #9 to #14, and Black Eyed Peas down from #8 to #13. Their hit "Imma Be" only made it to #8 on this chart. I liked the song for a short time and quickly grew disinterested in it after I bought it. Oh well.
Also moving down is Broken Bells with their song "The High Road" which apparently peaked at only #15 last week. This week it's at #18.
