Lady Gaga’s “G.U.Y.” Video: Review Revue

cc2ab57d57415c9bf70f2bc4e45019b6 Lady Gaga’s “G.U.Y.” Video: Review Revue

Monsters, Lady Gaga has given you all a lot to look at with the visual for her third ARTPOP single “G.U.Y.” Can your eyes handle all the spectacular spectacle and fashionable flash and overall Vanderpump of this music video?

Several online critics had their say on the Gaga-directed extravaganza, which incorporates four tracks from her latest album, several personalities from the Bravo network and has a run time of nearly 12 minutes. (The credits at the end take up four of those.) Head below to see our roundup of “G.U.Y.” reviews, then let us know your own thoughts on LG’s latest video.

:: MTV rightly notes, “It’s gonna be really hard for Gaga to out-Gaga this one.”

:: Entertainment Weekly calls the video “11 minutes and 46 seconds of unfettered camp-pop delirium that falls somewhere between a Cocteau movie and an episode of Watch What Happens Live, complete with (we couldn’t make this up if we tried) Andy Cohen as Zeus and the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as a Greek chorus.”

:: Metro quips, “Even by Gaga standards it’s pretty crazy but at least no one throws up on her.”

:: HitFix brands the video a “a ridiculous, ‘Real Housewives’-assisted spectacle,” and notes that “Lady Gaga has been working to reclaim her queen of pop throne after a rough 2013 and her new video for ‘G.U.Y.”…draws from real-life themes of feeling betrayed by her inner circle — plus a heavy dose of camp and pop culture.”

:: Sugarscape calls Gaga “pop’s most cray cray of critters” then asks, “What d’ya reckon? Worth the twelve minutes of your life you’re never gonna get back? Probably.”

:: MuuMuse feels that “Gaga’s found her way back on top…by being on the bottom,” and deems “G.U.Y.” to be “Gaga’s most grand visual smorgasbord since the days of ‘Bad Romance’ and ‘Telephone’. and certainly the most creative Summer By Bravo commercial to date.”

:: Finally, The Frisky has this to say: “Gaga, I think you need to take a step back, recuperate some of the dough you blew on ArtPop, make sweet love to your hot boyfriend, Taylor Kinney, reevaluate your relationships with predatory assholes like R. Kelly and Terry Richardson, ditch that vomit artist, and come back when you’re interesting again.”
