Five brilliant Gaga covers

The world went crazy the other day over the release of Lady Gaga’s video for “Telephone.” It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it is insane. Everyone, haters and lovers alike, can agree that video is nuts. Bananas. Nuts and bananas.

I think that Gaga’s talent as a musician is often overshadowed by her costumes. And shoes. And wigs. And lit-cigarette sunglasses. It is hard sometimes to notice she actually sings. And writes. And plays instruments. Thankfully Buzzfeed found these 5 diverse and incredible versions of Gaga’s Telephone. They’re all different styles. The closest to the original, by the band Alphabeat, who are opening up for Gaga in Europe, is my favorite. I think it bests Gaga’s. The other five are all worth checking out too.
