Oh My God, Look at Their Freaky Fashion: Die Antwoord vs. Lady Gaga in "Fatty Boom Boom"

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Tue, Oct 16, 2012 at 12:14 PM

The latest video from Die Antwoord just dropped, including some familiar themes (Roger Ballen art; controversy courting in the form of Yo Landi sporting full-body black face; animals), as well as a new target. The South African group made headlines earlier this year by turning down a chance to tour with Lady Gaga, calling her a "bad Madonna rehash." To drive their disdain home, they enlisted a drag version of her here, depicted undergoing a series of misfortunes, including a spoogey prawn/cockroach thingy and a lion. You've been warned.
