Beyonce and Lady Gaga's 'Video Phone' (parental discretion advised)


What happens when two of the most entertaining divas in popular music get together for a music video? Apparenty, a whole lotta booty shakin’.

But if you can see past Beyonce’s erotic dance moves, Video Phone (directed by Hype Williams) has some impressive references. Beyonce’s slow walk forward in the beginning is a obvious homage to Reservoir Dogs.


There are also references to Flashdance, Grindhouse and sex symbol Marlon Brando.


Halfway through, Lady Gaga makes her appearance, and so begins the gun play. And, for the record, please don’t don’t let Lady G near an actual gun—her aim is a little off the mark. No, Katy Perry doesn’t make a guest appearance, but Beyonce seems to be imitating her –or Betty Page ( I always get the two confused)


But clearly, there’s no questioning these women have all the power and are not afraid to flaunt it.

Here, see for yourself:
