Catchy, but not outstanding

This song is okay. It's catchy but pretty mainstream. I think the content is fine for kids.

Meh...

I've always been a little skeptical about Lady Gaga's music (although I love Poker Face) and this song is no exception. While the beat is kinda catchy, it also sounds either amateur (especially at the beginning) or WAY too overproduced (The possibly thousands of synthesizers in the chorus is a total mess). The pop culture and art references are completely un-creative and sometimes unintentionally funny. The lyrics are garbage ("Pop culture was in art/now art and pop culture in me" WHAT!!!!???) and the cover art for the single is just ridiculous. Overall, with all the millions of fans and dollars to help keep her in the music industry, I expected more from Lady Gaga.

Very catchy!

I love this song! It is very danceable. And I think the "put your hands up make them touch" part means clapping above your head, not in sexual places.

REALLY good song, but....

I love this song! I listen to it every day. But..... there IS some inappropriate material. There is no violence, no gore, nothing like that. I think parents should pay attention to the lyrics and the video ( mostly the video ). Lyrics can be a little touchy: " Put your hands up, make them touch " is a part of the chorus. Very.... strong outfits are used. One is a shirt ( well, more like a bra ) that has hands on the front. In one part, she is only wearing cover ups, NOT clothes. She can have strange.... strange moves in the music video. That's all there is to worry about :D
