Best Music Videos Of 2009: #4 Lady GaGa "Paparazzi"

In addition to directing arguably his most shocking video to date with Rammstein's "Pussy," Jonas Åkerlund also spent part of 2009 directing "Paparazzi," arguably his most iconic video since Prodigy's "Smack My Bitch Up," making Jonas a ripe candidate for 2009's "pop video director of the year." "Iconic" is really a perfect word to describe this video not only for Jonas, but more obviously for Lady GaGa. If "Poker Face" didn't make it obvious that she means business, "Paparazzi" went and smacked a bitch up like a champagne bottle across the face. Also, let's not forget dancing wheelchair/crutches and the "fuck you" mugshots at the end. This is some brilliant shit right here.
