It’s like Christmas morning here at the Ministry -- Lady Gaga and Beyonce have unveiled the music video for their latest collaboration, ‘Telephone,’ directed by Jonas Akerlund. Where to begin with such a visual feast, packed with fantastic fashion, girl fights, poisoned diner food, an army of headpieces and lots of Gaga goodness?

We gave you a taste a few weeks ago; now you can devour the full clip (like the apple fritter the girls feast on in the vid). [Updated at 9:08 a.m., March 12: The edited version of the video wasn’t quite as edited as we needed it to be for embedding here, but here’s a link for now.] We’re partial to Gaga’s pet name for Beyonce (‘Honey Bee’), the cameos from Tyrese Gibson and Jai Rodriguez, and the early confirmation that Gaga does not, in fact, have boy parts.


And that’s to name only a few.
