In another feeble attempt to harken back to the days when her career was on the ups, she was making good music and anyone gave a shit, Lady GaGa has revealed that she’s made a follow-up to ‘Telephone’, her track with Beyoncé that appeared on The Fame Monster EP. I like to give credit where credit’s due, and that’s a damn good song, so no hateration there… but really? “Eh, my new shit is kind of tanking, so maybe I’ll make a follow-up to an old song that did pretty well…” Eyeroll.
From an interview with Kiss FM (via DS):
“It is surely coming. I’m very excited to be filming it and doing it. I will say that one of the songs I will be playing at the Roundhouse is meant to be the continuation.
“I’m very excited about it. The ‘Telephone’ video and working with Jonas Akerlund – for ‘Paparazzi’ as well – was such an incredible experience.
“To finish this trilogy will be great as I know how much the fans want it. We’ve already written it, so it’s going to be fantastic.”
I mean, whatever and all. I’ll listen to it and it might be the best thing about her new material. I just think it’s a little weak to pretend that it’s something you’ve always wanted to do and something the fans want. I’ve never heard a single person, while listening to ‘Telephone’ or thinking about it say, “Damn, this is such a good song! The only thing that would make it better is a sequel!” Then again, I don’t hang around any Little Monsters because I value my dignity and sanity.
No word whether Beyoncé will participate in the follow-up fuckery.
