Watch the Lady Gaga Parody 'X-Men: Born This Way': Little Mutants for Little Monsters
Somehow, Lady Gaga's uber-hyped single "Born This Way" made an impact here at Movieline. I encouraged the medium convergence, as the self-love-touting single could work as an anthem for many cinematic characters. Now, YouTube parodists have taken up that lead, mashing up Gaga's song with X-Men: First Class's mutant beginnings. You'll remember that the movie and the original song are pretty much about the same thing, anyway. The first line alone will slay you.
"It doesn't matter if you love men, or X-M-E-N." Come on. That's not bad. I'm sure Lady Gaga fancies herself a hybrid of Storm and Beast, if her monster cred is legitimate. I wouldn't be surprised to see a Mystique-level bodypaint job turn up in Gaga's next video. Not in navy blue, though. Much too pedestrian.
