Considering all she's crammed into her first year of pop stardom, no one would hold it against Stefani Germanotta if she padlocked her wardrobe, hopped on a plane to somewhere exotic and spent a couple of weeks slobbing about in an old 'Frankie Says Relax' T-shirt. Not that she's about to do anything of the sort, of course.
Trailing an album reissue featuring eight brand new songs comes 'Bad Romance', a single with just as much bravura as 'Just Dance' or 'Poker Face'. We could draw your attention to the humongous chorus, the fabulously deranged vocal performance or the fact that RedOne's still saving his best and most bombastic productions for her, but really it suffices to say that GaGa begins the track by singing this: "Rah-rah-ah-ah-ah / Ro-mah-ro-mah-mah / GaGa-ooh-la-la". Thank God/New York/Fashion/Whatever for inventing her.
