“Bad Romance” is a song by American recording artist Lady Gaga, the lead single from her album The Fame Monster. The track was inspired by paranoia she felt while touring in 2008. The song seemed to appeal to fans worldwide, providing a “catchy” beat and lyrics to sing along to. “Bad Romance” debuted at number nine the Billboard Hot 100 for November 14, 2009, selling 142,000 paid digital downloads in its first week.
The Music Video
The entire video takes place in a brightly fluorescent-lit white bath house with a sign reading “BATH HAUS of GaGa”. Lady Gaga and her dancers climb out of pods--Lady Gaga’s labeled “Mons†er”--wearing long-sleeved white leotards. The dancers grab her, tear off her clothes, and force her to drink something. They put her up for auction, and a man buys her for one million Rubles. At the end of the video, Lady Gaga approaches the man, who is sitting on a bed unbuttoning his shirt. The bed bursts into flame and the man is reduced to a charred skeleton, Lady Gaga lying beside it covered in soot and wearing a metal bra that emits sparks. The video premiered on November 10, 2009 and was uploaded to YouTube by VEVO on November 23, 2009, eventually becoming one of the most-viewed YouTube videos of all time with over 460 million views as of May 2012.
