    Wow talk about moving on to bigger & better things! Britters just doesn't compare to Beyonce.
    Anyways the song was meant for Britney. This doesn't mean she was the original guest vocalist. I'm thinking the guest vocalist was Madonna because they've been kinda close lately.
    Wait, britney is putting Telephone in her GH?
    No, she wanted to put it on her GH but Lady G refused & got Beyonce to do Britters' part instead.

    What is the "Illuminati" group?
    A load of conspiracy crap spouted by the paranoid who have nothing better to do with their time than dissect imagery in popular culture. 'Lady Gaga is covering one eye in that photoshoot and that means SHE IS MANIPULATING YOU AS A CONSUMER! etc'. It's pure ridicule basically.
    There is something strange in the things gaga do. You can't deny that whenever the music is good or not.

    PJ review of The Fame Monster:

    Right - so we've heard Lady Gaga's 'The Fame Monster' and it's a pretty astonishing piece of work. Lyrically, sonically, melodically and conceptually it's right up there with its predecessor 'The Fame', with a definite feel of things moving in a new direction.

    We know a lot of you are thinking that this is just a cash-in reissue of 'The Fame' with a few tracks chucked on. It's not that at all - this is a collection of songs in its own right. When you buy this you will not be buying 'The Fame' again in order to get at a couple of extra songs - you'll be buying a new album which just so happens to have a copy of 'The Fame' in the same box.

    If it helps make sense of things, imagine purchasing 'The Fame Monster' 2-disc set then throwing the 'The Fame' CD away. In fact that is what you should actually do when you get this. Throw 'The Fame' out of the window. 'The Fame Monster' is a real album with its own personality.

    In brief:

    - Eight tracks.
    - Four potential singles.
    - No s**t songs.

    Here's a track by track.

    'Bad Romance'
    Waffle: 'Poker Face' reinvented. Can you believe that some people have said that this song sounds too much like 'Poker Face'? As if anything could sound too much like one of the best songs of 2008/09? It would be like saying 'the problem with this restaurant is that the food is too nice and too reasonably priced', or 'the problem with this hat is that it makes me look too attractive'. Now imagine wearing an amazing hat in the world's best restaurant. THAT IS WHAT THIS SONG IS LIKE.
    Verdict: 7/8

    'Alejandro'
    Waffle: It sounds like this.

    And by 'this' we mean an amazing romantic post-Italotronic triumph.
    Verdict: 7/8

    'Monster'
    Waffle: Opens with snatches of dialogue ('Don't call me Gaga', 'I've never seen one like that before', 'Don't look at me like that') then launches into a story of Gaga pulling a "wolf in disguise". The chorus is a big chant of "that boy is a monster, that boy is a monster" and there are some 'Just Dance'-isms along the way too. There's a great breakdown for the middle eight: "I wanna just dance but he took me home instead, uh-oh there was a monster in my bed, we French kissed on a subway train, he tore my clothes right off, he ate my heart and then he ate my brain".
    Verdict: 6/8

    'So Happy I Could Die'
    Waffle: A mid-tempo number with some Tiesto-esque ravey bits, some references to The Act Of Masturbation, and a chorus lyric "happy in the club with a bottle of red wine, stars in our eyes 'cos we're having a good time, so happy I could die". Not a single but an important part of the whole 'Fame Monster' thing.
    Verdict: 5/8

    'Speechless'
    Waffle: At one point this was a big piano ballad but since Ron Fair's production has been added it's more along the lines of a 'Starman' or an 'All The Young Dudes'-type affair. This is the track about Gaga's father and it seems to be written from Gaga's mother's point of view. By the time the second verse comes around there seem to be strong hints of booze ("I can't believe how you looked at me with your Johnnie Walker eyes", "raise a glass to mend all the broken hearts" etc) so it seems this is the 'Fear Of Alcohol Monster' Gaga previously mentioned. The chorus is "I'll never talk again, oh boy you've left me speechless / I'll never love again, oh friend you've left me speechless" and one of the best bits finds Gaga singing "after all the boys and the girls that we've been through, would you give it all up if I promised boy to you that I'll never talk again, and I'll never love again, I'll never write a song, or even sing along..." This is a massive, massive ballad which doesn't sound like anything else you've heard from Lady Gaga and could do for her what 'Beautiful' did for Christina Aguilera. At the very least, it's a good lighters-aloft live anthem.
    Verdict: 7/8

    'Dance In The Dark'
    Waffle: The chorus to this is amazing - imagine RedOne to the next level with a massive emotionally-charged synth riff chucked in along the way. Actually the everything to this is amazing, it opens with the words "silicone, saline, poison, inject me" and the arms-aloft, four-to-the-floor chorus is a chant of "baby loves to dance in the dark, cos when he's looking she falls apart." There's another line about "she looks good but her boyfriend says she's a tramp" - it seems to be about women who are marginalised or who are in (mentally?) abusive relationships. We may have totally missed the point of this song, and if so 'apols' in advance.
    Best bit: an almost pant-wettingly excellent, 'Vogue'-style rap breakdown in which Gaga lets rip: "Marilyn, Judy, Sylvia, tell them how you feel girls [something we couldn't quite make out] hot like Liberace, find your freedom in the music, find your Jesus, find your cutie, you will never fall apart Diana, you're still in our hearts, never let you fall apart, together we'll dance in the dark". AMAZING.
    Verdict: 8/8

    'Telephone'
    Waffle: A song about being pestered by someone on the phone when you're trying to have a dance in a nitespot. It's a little bit like Gwen's 'What You Waiting For?' meets Timbaland's 'The Way I Are' meets about fifty other things. "I cannot text you with a drink in my hand," Gaga notes at one point. The structure's quite exciting: quiet harpy intro / "kinda busy, k-kinda busy" bridge as beat kicks in / verse / chorus ("stop calling, stop calling, I don't wanna talk any more") / postchorus bit / 'The Way I Are'-style rap / Beyonce rap ("should have left my phone at home cos this is a disaster") / breakdown verse / "kinda busy" bridge / chorus / another bit / 'The Way I Are' rap bit / extra 'My Humps'-esque (but not really) "my telephone! My telephone!" outro, then "we're sorry, the number you have reached is not in service" operator message. We love Beyonce insisting that some bellend on the other end of the phone won't make her get her coat any faster. Bonus fact: The guest vocalist on this was going to be someone else, but then the guest vocalist wanted to put the song on her own greatest hits album, so Lady Gaga made alternative arrangements.
    Verdict: 7/8

    'Teeth'
    Waffle: A wobbly, stompy, bouncy marching song. Opens with a "don't want no money, just want your sex" line, includes lots of chanting of "SHOW ME YOUR TEETH! SHOW ME YOUR TEETH!", and a foray into Black Betty territory
    Verdict: 6/8

    That's all from one listen - this album has loads more to give up from repeated plays and we can't wait to get stuck in properly. 'Monster' and 'Bad Romance' have elements of 'Just Dance' and 'Poker Face' but these seem like knowing nods back in the direction of 'The Fame', while other songs - 'Dance In The Dark', 'Teeth' hint at what lies ahead for the next, third Lady Gaga album.

    Sounds good.

    Well, she uses certain symbols and imagery which are akin to that used by said group(s).
    wow that would be just shocking! can u tell me more about this symbols¿
    Principally the triangle/pyramid and the eye (All seeing eye, which represents this all-seeing elite on top of the "pyramid" (society) and the all-seeing god that they believe in). Her whole persona and message, her music videos, etc.

    But there's a difference between being SKEPTICAL that Lady Gaga who is CONSTANTLY covering one eye and trying to shock us into desensitization (Paparazzi at VMAs? the Paparazzi video, etc, etc?) might be a puppet for some silly elite freemason group, compared to thinking that our minds are being controlled by her music and we will soon all succumb to world domination by the Illuminati.

    Conspiracy theories are a grey area IMHO. You *can* take it too far, but there's no denying that the rich and the powerful have the ability to fashion certain things in certain ways.

    Lady Gaga's rise to fame is so meteoric it simply is unbelievable. Everything that's happened within her career in the past 12-15 months is a little suspicious, IMHO, but that's all I ever think.

    I agree, people take the whole Illuminati thing waaay too far.
    However, it is a fact that there is a very select elite group - connected to Freemasonry and old European aristocracy, amongst other things - with ALOT of influence in high places, going from Ivy League universitites (through ridiculously influential and wealthy fraternities) to politics, economy, and even pop culture.

    The Illuminati is supposedly a group of 13 people who control the media, the government & everything that goes on in the world. They consist of rich dynasties like the Rockafellas & the Rothschilds.

    Maybe its the same song, but the new version is called Telephone. Or maybe Bee sings "Video Phone" on the song and Gaga sings "telephone". So Gaga calls it Telephone and Bee calls it Video Phone
