Is Lady Gaga abandoning her wacky fashion sense? No, thankfully, but for her video collaboration with Beyoncé, the zany dresser channeled the sexy and sleek style of the R&B pop princess — so well, she was nicknamed “Gee-yoncé” during the making of the video. Paparazzi photos from the “Video Phone” shoot show Gaga in an outfit that looks in line with Beyoncé’s sleeker style — a white strapless leotard, matching opera gloves and long, flowing hair. “When I was doing her video with her, she called me, and she said, ‘What do you want to do?'” Gaga revealed in an interview with New York’s Z100 radio station on Tuesday morning. “And I’m like, ‘I don’t want to show up in some frickin’ hair bow and be fashion Gaga in your video.’ I said, ‘I want to do you.'” In the same interview, Gaga said she just wanted to “do my version of Beyoncé, so the whole time I was learning the choreography they were calling me Gee-yoncé.” “Video Phone” is Beyoncé’s next single from the album “I Am…Sasha Fierce.” Gaga also mentioned that she and Beyoncé are working on music together, but did not elaborate on the details. We can’t wait for that to happen! –Kristin Larson

Miracle Gaga did not poke out Beyonce’s eye with that ridiculous thing around her face.

I agree with wiseup. Lady Gaga is just all about her image – her music is only so-so. She’s trying to be Madonna but ends up with a very bad copycat of it. I’m sick of having to read about her all the time. Let the genuine artistes take centrestage.

Gaga is so bizarre, but she is so incredibly talented. We all know Beyonce is gifted. I think they will work really well together!
