Animatronic love stories have taken over the music scene. The recent music videos, inspired by the tale of robotic love in the 1927 film, Metropolis, have invaded the fashion scene as well as the musical one. This week we’ll see how some good and some bad (very bad) music and fashion have come from this inhuman trend!


I’m going to start this week of robotic fashion and music with the “Bad Romance” video by Lady Gaga. Fashion and science fiction have been married into a robotic fashion statement created by the ultimate king of fantasy, the late Alexander McQueen. I have to admit I actually enjoy this video, as well as McQueen’s haute couture shoes and costumes!
