Lady Gaga took to her Twitter account on Thursday (March 4) to tease her fans about the forthcoming release of her hotly anticipated “Telephone” music video with Beyoncé. Although there have been many rumors about exactly when the video might premiere, Gaga simply said it’s on its way. She tweeted earlier this week that the clip was still being edited and she wants it to be “perfect.”
She tweeted “RING RING its coming little monsters” along with a link to a photo of her in a prison-like room, wearing nothing more than crime-scene tape placed in all the right places and some deep-red lipstick.
She also tweeted the good news about the song itself, which is Gaga’s latest #1 hit. “LITTLE MONSTERS!! Today is an exciting day. Telephone become our SIXTH NUMBER 1 RECORD IN A ROW IN AMERICA! I love you so much! Celebrate!”
The photo’s prison setting would work with the rumored story line for the video. Reportedly Beyoncé, who is featured on the track, breaks Gaga out of prison for what is expected to be a Tarantino-inspired clip that even features the truck that Uma Thurman’s Bride drove in Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill.”
While fellow video co-stars Semi Precious Weapons have described the chemistry between Beyoncé and Gaga as “magical”; B herself said the ladies got “crazy” on the California set of the Jonas Åkerlund-directed clip.
Gaga, who appears in the video in a number of characteristic get-ups (including phones on her head), shared that the video picks up where “Paparazzi” left off. “What I like about it is it’s a real true pop event,” she said. “And when I was younger, I was always excited when there was a big giant event happening in pop music and that’s what I wanted this to be.”
