What does [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] do in her spare time while she’s chillin’ in her fancy hotel room?
Apparently, Mama Monster likes to pretend she’s hosting her own pop music video countdown show (or hosting her own version of the 2011 MTV VMAs)–from her bathtub.
Lady Gaga has never been that vague about where her she gets her influences from, but she does a great job of summing up why she likes certain songs, some even a little unexpected. Check out Lady Gaga’s Top 11 (always a rebel) List of Her Favorite Music Videos.
There is something so adorable about Lady Gaga fully-dressed, wearing super high heels, in her bathtub.
“Stay”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Shakespeare’s Sister[/lastfm]
“I love this video because it mixes this sort of strange and airy aesthetic with something that is so beautiful.”
“Hold On”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Wilson Phillips[/lastfm]
“I remember watching this video with my mother and dancing around in the living room. I remember wondering if my mom could invite one of her friends over so that we could each be a member of Wilson Philips and act out the video together.”
“She also had a great pair of mom jeans.”
“Corporate Cannibal”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Grace Jones[/lastfm]
“I absolutely love this video. It’s no secret that I’m a huge Grace Jones fan and I thought that this music video was not only modern but incredibly unique and interesting. Chris Cunningham did an incredible job. “
“Stress”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Justice [/lastfm]
“This video is very emotional. Very strange. It’s got this sort of high-pitched squeal in the background that sort of the energy of the song pacing through the entire time.”
“I just remember when I first saw it; I thought this is what pop music should look like.”
“Life on Mars?”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]David Bowie[/lastfm]
“I have been inspired by David Bowie since I was a very little girl and this video in particular always stayed in my mind. It was so simple and so effective, but that make-up–you could never forget it.”
“Too Funky”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]George Michael[/lastfm]
“When it comes to fashion, when it comes to super models, there’s really no video that does it better. This video changed pop music and fashion forever. “
“I love this music video and TLC is one of those groups that really combined genres. They crossed over pop into R&B seamlessly and they rocked the world. They defined pop music for an entire generation.”
“This video shook me to my core through its message and through how strong and powerful they were, and are, as women.”
“Thriller”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Micheal Jackson[/lastfm]
“The next needs no explanation. This is arguably the greatest music video of all time. “Thriller.”
“The next music video I chose is perhaps her most iconic, most memorable. We all love it; we all dance to it; we all would die without it. This is Madonna, “Vogue.”
“If I Could Turn Back Time”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Cher[/lastfm]
“The next video that I chose happens to be one of my favorite videos of all time. To say that she’s a fashion inspiration is an understatement. She’s also very beautiful and a good person. This is Cher.”
“If you could remember her in that leather jacket and that thong. She still looks the same in it, by the way.”
“Here I Go Again”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Whitesnake[/lastfm]
“And last, for my video countdown, I wanted to choose a song and a video that some may not deem as pop music; Whitesnake, “Here I Go Again” is a music video that changed the landscape of pop forever.”
“So many rock groups got so much s**t for making popular music. They were told that they sold out; they were told that they were not as hardcore as they used to be. But when that beautiful blonde girl got on the top of that car and danced, we never thought about any other girl again. “
“She changed music for us and so did Whitesnake.”
