Even though it’s not coming out ’til the 23rd, that hasn’t stopped Lady Gaga’s The Fame Monster from spilling forth onto the ever impatient interwebs, and let’s all just be honest with ourselves, y’all:
Sure, it’s only 8 songs long, and it’s like Gaga’s gone and reinvented the discostick, but The Fame Monster has some really great songs that definitely earn it a “BUY” come next Tuesday. Songs, for example, like “Alejandro,” which is the Lady’s catchy dance anthem ode to tossing Latin lovers aside like they’re used tissues at a sperm bank:
I mean, sooo good, but I can’t help but feel like there’s a glitch in the homo matrix because I feel like I’ve heard this song. Oh, wait, I have:
It’s not as though I think Lady Gaga’s ripped off Ace of Base, but that doesn’t stop me from flashing back to 1994, a time when I thought Jim Carrey movies were funny and flannel was appropriate to wear even if you weren’t a lesbian. It’s very confusing, y’all.
Also, I applaud these two girls for their dancing moxie, but I do wonder why they act so gangsta while dancing to Ace of Base. It’s Ace of Base, ladies. You swish to that shit, not swagger.
