Screencap of Lady Gaga & Beyonce in the video for 'Telephone'
Poor Beyonce, we thought. The woman recently teamed up with Lady Gaga for a pair of songs: "Videophone" by Beyonce (featuring Lady Gaga), and "Telephone" by Lady Gaga (featuring Beyonce). The singles dropped around the same time, but Beyonce's didn't seem to stick around long -- barely a blip on the radar. And her video? Meh.
And so we were thinking, "Poor Beyonce. She tried to pull an edgy PR stunt with the New Kid, and she wound up playing second fiddle." Cue the sad trombone.
Then we saw the new video for Gaga's "Telephone". Dude, Beyonce gets to drive the Pussy Wagon from Kill Bill. (Which is, for those who care about these things, an extremely badass, customized Chevy Silverado SS.) No more tears for her.
We've embedded the clip below. It's decidedly awesome -- far more awesome than "Videophone" -- but it is also ever-so-slightly NSFW (if you work at a church, school, or poison control hotline).
