[ # ] The hang ups over Baby Gaga
June 8th, 2010 under 50 Cent, Lady Gaga



So there is a little 3 year old girl who everyone is calling their friends on the phone about because she is dressed up as Lady Gaga and doing her Telephone video. Some people think it is cute, while others think it is sick and disgusting. Her mother went on CBS’s Early Show to defend the video and here is what she said.

“She’s three. She is very energetic, she’s very playful, and she’s outgoing,” Heidi said. “And Jake, the director here, he has known her since she was 6 months old, so she was very comfortable with him. And being in the industry, he decided let’s do a video, a spoof of Lady Gaga. So it was perfect because she’s so animated. And she’s a good little dancer, so it just seemed like a good fit.”
“Early Show” co-anchor Maggie Rodriguez observed it didn’t look like Kiera was having a good time making the video. But how was she on the set?
Wilson said, “Keira since she’s been young, she’s always loved to play dress ups like I did when I was a little kid. That’s the joy of being a kid. So she had a great time. And a lot of the things in the video where she seems mad or something, that was us telling her to be mad because that’s one of her faces that she likes making and that’s just the joke on the video.”
Rodriguez said, “She’s a little girl. She’s wearing makeup, she’s wearing handcuffs. She has scantily clad women dancing behind her. Did any part of you wonder what is my little girl going to take from this experience?”
Heidi responded, “There was not one moment during the footage that she was uncomfortable with this. She never started to feel threatened or scared or said, Mommy — a 3-year-old, there’s one thing about a 3-year-old, you can’t make them do anything. So if there was any sign of that during this whole video footage, I would have not let it go on.”
As for the scantily-clad women in bikini tops dancing behind her daughter, Heidi said she didn’t have a problem with it because it was a spoof of Lady Gaga.
“It has to be a little outrageous because Lady Gaga’s videos are outrageous. So basically it was just mocking that whole process. She loved every minute of it. She doesn’t talk about it anymore. It’s not something that’s damaging to her or anything. She had fun dressing up, being herself. The whole video took about three hours to make. There were no long rehearsals.”
Rodriguez added, “That one thing that concerns me. It’ s all over the place. Who knows who is looking at this. The thought of a sicko or a pedophile looking at your little girl. Doesn’t that disturb you?”
Heidi Ladrow replied, “This went gangbusters quite quickly. It was a little project that we put together as spoof, as fun, something for our friends and family. We had no idea. I had no intentions. I had no idea this would get as large as it was. And I’m fine with it because I know how it was made. She was comfortable with Jake the whole time. And I was there. The reason why she might have looked a little — she just woke up from a two hour nap. We wanted her — she’s animated. We wanted her to look kind of upset in certain points. But I think that she’s a very well-adjusted child, and at 3, she’s very self-actualized. I don’t think she’s going to look back and say — I’m not trying to put her out there to be the next childhood star.”

I personally thought the video was cute and didn’t see anything wrong with it because you can tell it was harmless. Plus she is 3 years old chances are she won’t remember it. I personally think that the video of 3 year old Cody crying over Justin Bieber is worse because 10 years from now when her friends see that they are going to make fun of her over that because Bieber will be so lame by then. While all of Baby Gaga’s friends will think that it was so cool that she did that video.
What do you think of the video? Did you pick up The Telephone or did you hang up on the call?
