Now, because Gaga is just a guest in B's world, she has to tone down the crazy, which gives us a glimpse at what she would look like if she were just a normal pop star: No over-the-top costumes, silly makeup or razor sunglasses—just a good old wind machine, long perfect blond weave and leotard. Pretty underwhelming.
But this is really Beyoncé's music video, so let's not forget about her. While the song is not "Single Ladies" catchy, that doesn't stop B from bringing the fierce, even when it means ripping off Rihanna's style at the beginning or Bettie Page in the middle. And she does look cute all '40s pinup style, so no complaints here.
But wait, there's more. Beyoncé returns the favor, singing/rapping on Gaga's upcoming EP, The Fame Monster, on a track that is also phone related: "Telephone." (Check it out after the jump.) It'll be interesting to see if Beyoncé will go all Gaga should they do a music video and if it would look as awkward as Lady Gaga looks in "Video Phone" (or in last night's Gossip Girl appearance).
