So I feel that I need to precede this contest with a little explanation about why we’ve got a contest set up with Lady Gaga. For those of you who have been living under a rock, Lady Gaga is quite possibly the most famous celebrity/musician in the world right now. It’s damn near impossible to turn on the radio and not have one of her songs playing on some station. Add to that the fact that her video views have made her the only artist with over 1 BILLION views, and you’ve got to be at least a little impressed.
So why are we here at Bloody Disgusting hosting a contest for her? Bloody Disgusting is meant to cover horror news and the music section is meant to cover music that is edgier and heavier, right? Well, let’s be honest here: Lady Gaga definitely inspires controversy. Remember her VMA outfit? She looked like a blood-soaked citizen from Bosch’s The Garden Of Earthly Delight.
Read on for contest details and how to enter!
And if you’ve seen the video for “Bad Romance“, you kinda have to admit the WEALTH of horror references throughout. The dancers from the coffins move like the nurses from Silent Hill if those nurses were at the club. Gaga is being sold at an auction catered to BDSM lovers (reminds me a bit of the tone of Hostel). The gold outfit she wears at 3:30 looks like something directly out The Cell. And lastly, Gaga lays in a burnt bed, wearing only lingerie and shoes that look like H.R. Giger designed them, next to a charred skeleton. Nekromantik anyone?
I could go on about how many of her other videos also have clever horror nods to them, but instead, I’ll tell you all about this great contest that we have in store for you readers!
