Along with Vevo‘s grand unveiling last night, a few new major exclusives have cropped up on the site, including the ACTUAL behind-the-scenes video for “Video Phone.” Arguably, it’s even funnier than the parody.
To help my Muusers better understand what’s happening here, I’ve written up a little guide to understanding some of the dialogue and wordplay happening here: Take note.
What we hear: “She came to the video shoot and learned the choreography which I didn’t…even expect her to put so much time into it, but she said ‘I want this to be an event.’ And she worked really hard and learned it so fast.”
What actually is: “This ho got the nerve to show up at my video shoot without permission, but before I could free a hand and side-slap the bitch, she starting whining about her ‘art’….so I let her have some much-needed time with my choreographer while me and Jay went shopping for neon-glow toy guns for her to hold.”
What we hear: “This is what makes Beyonce so amazing at what she does, because she understands that Lady Gaga just learned this yesterday, and you can see her over on the screens just watching and learning, and seeing how she can adjust herself to adjust to Gaga.”
What actually is: “This is only further proof that Beyonce is indeed our Lord and Saviour, because she understands that Lady Gaga is truly a terrible dancer, and you can see her lowering herself to Gaga’s level of mediocrity in order to make sure that crackhead didn’t fuck up the video too much. Praise Beysus.”
What you hear: “It’s so funny! I don’t know how to deal with the fan!” *Laughing hard, tearing up.*
What actually is: “It’s so…beautiful! I don’t know how to deal with the beauty!” *Takes off nonexistent over-sized sunglasses, cries tears of Gaga beauty.*
What you hear: (While clapping and laughing) “It’s great!”
What actually is: (While clapping and laughing) “How much can we edit her out before it starts becoming obvious that it’s intentional?”
What you hear: “I like when I look like your back-up dancer.”
What actually is: “I like when I look like your back-up dancer.”
And that’s all you need to know.
