Remember when Lady Gaga & Beyonce collaborated on “Telephone” last year? Fans almost died holding their breath for the epic mini-movie that incited anticipation with delays and teases. Well, Lady Gaga, who probably called it art before, hates it now.

She told Time Out,

“I can’t even watch the Telephone video, I hate it so much. Beyonce and I are great together. But there are so many ideas in that video and all I see in that video is my brain throbbing with ideas and I wish I had edited myself a little bit more. It’s funny, though, because I know a lot of kids on the forums didn’t like the Alejandro video, but that was my favorite of all my videos. It’s not busy. But maybe that’s my own monster.”

And this isn’t a fleeting feeling. Lady Gaga also told Pop Justice:

“I hate ‘Telephone’. Is that terrible to say? It’s the song I have the most difficult time listening to. Ultimately the mix and the process of getting the production finished was very stressful for me. So when I say it’s my worst song it has nothing to do with the song, just my emotional connection to it.”

Damn. Who knew a year could make such a difference? (Well, India.Arie did: India.Arie Calls “Telephone” Vid “Socially Irresponsible”)
