News : Lady Gaga clip gets 15 million hits

The America pop idol, Lady Gaga’s controversial new music video that features R&B star Beyonce and lesbian prison sex has had more than 15 million hits within four days of its release on You Tube.

The video, which starts in a leather-clad fantasy women's prison and later has Lady Gaga and Beyonce poisoning customers in a diner, was also among the top hottest topics on Twitter.

Most fans lapped up the "Telephone" video. "Most creative thing i've seen out of lady gaga and beyonce...i enjoyed it," wrote AdrieneAsh2 in a YouTube comment.


But some appeared to be getting bored with the shock tactics.

"There's something so gimmicky about Lady Gaga that any talent she purports to have is undermined by her seemingly utter desperation to shock or be scandalous in every.single.video. It just bores you after a while and I just hope male artists don't start with this oversexualized trash pop too," said ticamorena in a posting on website popsugar.com

Writing on the huffingtonpost.com, journalists Jim Schumacher and Debbie Bookchin asked whether Lady Gaga's exploits were art or media manipulation.

"What if glitzy Lady Gaga is exactly what she appears to be: The latest manifestation of a culture industry that pushes the boundaries of civility and sexuality to the extreme in order to make a buck? And worse, pushes it on our kids long before they want or need to be presented with some middle-aged ad executive's personal sadomasochistic sexual fantasies?," the pair wrote in a blog entry.

Nevertheless, the double Grammy-award winner’s latest music video - a nine-minute mini-film to accompany her single Telephone - had racked up more than 15,5 million views on YouTube by Monday after its release late on Thursday night and it’s seemingly getting more.

The Glam pop singer then announced 31 US concert dates on Monday where her fans could catch this controversial perfomance. She said she would take her "Monster's Ball" tour on a second US leg in July, August and September.

She said the theatrical show will be "more of a musical and less of a concert". - IOL
