What is the most WTF moment that Lady Gaga has brought about?  Was it the lyric “let’s have some fun / this beat is sick / I wanna take a ride on your disco stick” (from “Lovegame”)?  Was it Christopher Walken doing a dramatic reading of the lyrics of “Poker Face”?  Was it the TV interview she did where she wore a dress made entirely out of Kermit the Frog dolls?  Oh no, dear reader.  Those moments have now been usurped by Francis Lawrence-helmed, Kubrik-indebted clip for “Bad Romance”, off of the forthcoming re-release of Lady GaGa’s unbelievably-successful debut album The Fame.
