Lady Gaga: Top Gun & John Hughes
Lady Gaga just released her new single Do What U Want, featuring R Kelly. There was a photo that accompanied her announcement on Twitter. It’s of her ass. Which is glorious.
As for the song…
LOVE it. I’ve attached it below. What does it remind you of? I’m talking to you, my people who also grew up in the 80s.
The opening bars, that beat that runs for the first 10 seconds, what scene just popped in your mind?
It’s a little Top Gun, isn’t it? You can see the oil smudging the runway, making the camera blurry, can’t you?
Compare it – the first 10 seconds of Gaga and the opening of Top Gun:
And then later, there’s a John Hughes montage going on, right? Maybe with a twist of Desperately Seeking Susan? Makes me want to bust open my 80s DVD collection.
