Fashion blog White Lighting uses the occasion of Lady Gaga's new video to explain why the Lady matters: "If you love fashion, and don't love GAGALOO TOO..then you don't get the joke, you don't get the fun, you don't get the THING. You don't have to love the music (bad move) but you have to LOVE THE LOVE." Click through for a breakdown of the video, which includes Gaga in full-on Alexander McQueen spring 2010 insect-alien-priestess mode, armadillo shoes included. [White Lightning]
