Dan Deacon’s new video for “True Thrush” off the new album America, out August 28th, is based on the game "telephone." Co-directed with Ben O'Brien, the video opens with a short scene created and filmed by the duo, which is then imitated by another team of two, and so on.

The game ends messier and more insane than it begins, resulting in some crazy art, new gestures and actions, and a giant, cardboard grouch-monster. Read More

I, however, am not one of these naysayers. I love all things Gaga, especially since the premiere of her epic 'Bad Romance' vid -- I have literally not watched anything else all week. PETA be damned, I'd wear that polar bear cape thing in a minute. Or those 10-inch lobster claw Alexander McQueen heels. Read More
