It’s sweltering hot, everything seems on the edge and it’s downright just plain brutal in Huntington Beach everyone! Hmmm…. This really sounds like one of my favourite artists too.
If you were keeping up on my Twitter and Facebook updates when the MTV Video Music Awards were going on, you would have read the excitement in my voice with all the awards that Lady Gaga won. As an artist, I love her brashness in fashion, braveness to lay it all out on the line and whether someone likes it or not – she keeps on doing what she loves from her heart. The best word I can think of is to quote my favourite actor; Keanu Reeves – “Whoa!”
I’ve shared Lady Gaga with you before on my blog, so I won’t go into all the amazing things that I look up to & respect about her as an artist AND that she doesn’t waver with what she believes in – standing firm and proud sharing with the world her opinions (Like helping to repeal Hate and Ignorance). But, I do think that this is an awesome statement she shares on her website: “And, now, I’m just trying to change the world one sequin at a time.”
I have a similar thought… Except for me it’s with one photo at a time.
But before you check out this week’s West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week and you’re thinking… Hey – I’d really like to get to know this Orange County Wedding Photographer that is supports helping heal our environment for our future, feel free to contact me anytime.
So without further ado, I give you Lady Gaga in “Telephone” – the official explicit version in all 9 minutes and 32 seconds worth (Which is pleanty of time to enjoy a morning beverage!). So feel free to sit back, enjoy the video, and maybe think about some ways on how we as a collective of people can help educate each other and someday eliminate hate & ignorance. I know, I know…. I’m a “Utopianist” and that’s a tall order & a huge dream. But if we aim for the stars and land on the moon, isn’t that making things better?
Have an awesome West Coast Wednesday and also remember to make it a totally positive one for someone else too – cheers!
