Can you handle it? Beyonce and Lady Gaga's 'Video Phone'

No kidding hubba hubba! "Video Phone" will wake you up faster than an Americano with three shots of espresso. Take a peep at Beyoncé and Lady Gaga's new collaboration, which premiered Monday night on MTV and VH1.

Nothing dirty here, but hoo-yah does it feel like it;  pinup queen Bettie Page knew how to work it, and these young ladies have taken a few tips from her -- and layered in some ultra-hot updates.

Love Gaga's big wide doe eyes out there, sans mask.

[UPDATE, 2:31 p.m.: A Ministry friend wonders whether Beyoncé, Gaga or perhaps video director Hype Williams might be a fan of the artist David "Netherland" van Alphen -- and we wonder too.]

[UPDATE, 4:40 p.m.: Our pals over at Pop & Hiss have weighed in on the video -- and so have many Ministry readers, down in the comments.]

Now, we would die to see Kurt Hummel knock this out with someone on "Glee" ...

Anyone think Quinn Fabray could do Gaga? Maybe Sue Sylvester?

Smell your cologne in tha airrrrrrr! Video phone yeah baby takin wakin video phone oooh yeah video phone Bouncy bouncy ooooooooooooooo

Caution: May cause seizures. And annoyance.

Doesn't it matter that the song plain sucks?

Well, this cured my insomnia. Bad Romance video was performance art. This is just your run of the mill music video.


A song about a video phone? Really.

Big, dumb stupid pop culture. I hate this crap.

Agreed Jon K.

About as bad as Mass: We Pray the video game.

I mean, really?

Are you kidding? That was awful. Not even worth writing about. Two talented women debasing themselves. How depressing. Single ladies had talent and presence this is quick cuts of nothing.

Song is pretty lame, but lots of eye candy, so it's was worth it, lol.

Maybe it's just my preference, but putting them side by side, Lady Gaga couldn't really hold up to beyonce on the hotness meter.

Lady Gaga just has no business being in the music business. She's horrible. I just don't understand why people like her. I mean really a song about paparazzi...it's lame and silly. Pop music is usually without substance but really cmon?! Beyonce on the other is definitely talented.

Maybe they were influenced by David "Netherland" van Alphen, but more likely it was the iconic Residents image of the guy with an eyeball for a head. I love their record about Elvis.

Not even a wiggle down there.

Hey, Sean, you're *so* right. How could I not think of that image? An online buddy uses it as his avatar and I see it all the time.

Awesome song and video. Finally, something to dance to in the club again.

I have been getting a lot of emails about this video and find it flattering that people think of my artwork when they see it. Thank you.

David "Netherland" van Alphen

This was a great song and music video, great female alliance. But Beyonce is a overrated sex symbol. The majority of her songs and music videos are provocative, too sexual, and not enough talent. Now, Lady Gaga is beautiful but she will be exploited like all of the other women in the music industry. "Video Phone"?-it went well with the video.
