Lady Gaga could have Beyonce Knowles as her rescuer in the music video for her single “Telephone”. With the filming of the video being underway, words are circulating that the video is likely to include the dance electronica singer being put behind bars and the R ‘n’ B songstress coming to her rescue. The video supporting GaGa’s second single off “The Fame Monster”, according to Toya’s World, will pick up the theme and concept of women in prison and may not see Beyonce dancing. It reportedly could have Tyrese Gibson as the leading man and may feature several cameos. One is from GaGa’s Monster Ball supporting acts, Semi Precious Weapons, while the other is from comedian Luenell. GaGa’s “Telephone” music video allegedly is being filmed in a desert in Los Angeles. Words are, it will serve as a continuation of her “Paparazzi” music video. Director Jonas Akerlund, who served behind the lens for “Paparazzi”, will be helming this new video. Designers Franc Fernandez and Oscar Olima are said to create destroyed denim pieces for GaGa and Beyonce. Before working together on “Telephone”, Lady GaGa and Beyonce Knowles have teamed up for a music video of Beyonce’s remix for single “Video Phone”. On her cameo, GaGa shared, “When I was doing her video with her, she called me and she said, ‘What do you want to do?’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t want to show up in some frickin’ hair bow and be fashion Gaga in your video.’ I said, ‘I want to do you’. I want to do my version of Beyonce. So the whole time I was learning the choreography, they were calling me Gee-yonce.” Celebrity-mania.com
Beyoncé Will Reportedly Rescue Lady Gaga in ‘Telephone’ Video, Clad in Destroyed Denim
Lady Gaga and Beyoncé are shooting the video for "Telephone" in L.A. today. The video is reportedly a continuation of Gaga's "Paparazzi" video, her epic collaboration with director Jonas Akerlund that made way for her to dangle onstage at the MTV Video Music Awards smeared up to her eyeballs with fake blood, after dance-hobbling around with a cane. But unlike "Paparazzi," "Telephone" is not about a broken heart and trying to make a man love you. It's about the opposite — trying to get your man to leave you the hell alone so you can focus on dancing and getting drunk in the club at the same time. The concept for the video reportedly involves Gaga getting imprisoned and Beyoncé rescuing her. As for their costumes, which are what's really important here, the divas are said to be wearing "destroyed denim pieces" by designers Franc Fernandez and Oscar Olima. Spring's denim explosion has been tough to accept, and downright weird much of the time, but if anyone can do the opposite for the material of what Jessica Beil did for it on the cover of Vogue, it's Gaga and her friend Beyoncé, who owes it to the world to explore just how skimpy cutoffs can get. According to early reports, Beyoncé may not dance in the video. At first this seems like a crime against humanity, but it's probably only fair. Lady Gaga respectfully put her masks and crazy body stockings aside to wear a plain white leotard in Beyoncé's "Videophone" video. Gaga has said she told Beyoncé prior to shooting, "I don't want to show up in some frickin' hair bow and be fashion Gaga in your video ... I want to do you." Because fashion is where Gaga outshines Beyoncé ... and pretty much everyone. Shaking it is where Beyoncé outshines Gaga ... and pretty much everyone. (Review the scene in "Video Phone" where they dance side by side if you doubt us.) So perhaps she owes it to Gaga to let her hips lie just this once. Nymag.com
