The Week Starter: Lady Power

May 17, 2010

This post probably would have worked well as a ‘Hump Day Inspiration’ piece but I just couldn’t wait that long. Two visual wonders really got me amped this past weekend… like, in a ‘grab the world by the balls and give it a good tit slap or two’ kind of way.

The first is the trailer for “Tournee,” a movie about a burlesque troupe which just had its debut at Cannes! Check out this post over at Laughing Squid to read more about it and our hometown hero burlesque stars…

The second is the basically-Thriller-status video/mini-movie for Lady Gaga‘s song ‘Telephone.’ Yes, I will be the first to admit that I am the last on the GaGa train… but I finally gotta acquiesce to the power of this performer to resuscitate art’s place in mainstream pop. She has truly made herself into an icon of Warholian proportions.

So here’s to you, lovely ladies!
