Video Showdown: Lady Gaga vs. Britney Spears
March 2, 2011 9:45 AM
It’s a pop diva showdown! Lady Gaga and Britney Spears have just released two of the year’s most anticipated songs and epic music videos to go along with them. But which popstar did it better? It’s time for YOU to chime in and let us know who wins this video showdown!
[photogallerylink id=51195 align=left]Did you ever think you’d witness Lady Gaga giving birth? Probably not. But the her latest Nick Knight-directed clip for “Born This Way” opens with just that… distorted and somewhat graphic imagery of “Mother Monster” giving birth to good and evil. It’s all part of Gaga’s greater message about acceptance.
But don’t think she’s getting all serious on us. The seven minute clip definitely had its share of crazy and barley-there costumes that fans adore. Not to mention, the dancing is quite good. It all may come off in a strange way but would we love Lady Gaga as much if she were a little more normal? Don’t think so!
And then there’s Britney! The popstar has seen her share of ups and downs in the past few years. The video for “Hold It Against Me” marks her official comeback to music.
Spears returns to her roots in the clip but don’t expect anything as deep as Lady Gaga’s meaningful message. The video for the dubstep-influenced dance track highlights Britney’s dancing, classic music videos and of course her signature girl next door look.
Don’t mind the product placement. There’s a lot of it! From makeup to perfume to dating websites. There’s no shame in Britney’s game when it comes to self-promotion. But that’s all a music video really is anyway, right?
So, is Britney back for good this time? We don’t want to jump to any conclusions but our gut tells us yes!
Now that you’ve watched both music videos you can help us out. Who wins the video showdown?
