Lady Gaga and Beyonce Team Up for "Video Phone" Video

October 15, 2009 4:51 PM ET

Lady Gaga will reportedly appear in the new video for Beyoncé's "Video Phone," a spokesperson for director Hype Williams confirmed to MTV. Rumors were circulating this week that Gaga was at the Greenpoint, Brooklyn, shoot for the video, even though Gaga herself doesn't appear on the I Am... Sasha Fierce track. However, Life and Style reports that a new version of the song with Beyoncé and Gaga trading verses will feature in the video.

Check out Lady Gaga's wildest wardrobe moments.

Not much is known about the video, which was reportedly shot October 7th, but a source tells Life and Style that "the fashion is sick and insane." And even though the shoot was for "Video Phone," no video phones or cameras were allowed on the closed set, MTV reports. The video will also have "lots of choreography" and "more dancers than the two girls [Beyoncé is] always with."

The confirmation that Gaga and Beyoncé will appear together in a video comes just over a month after the two singers provided perhaps the most memorable performances at this year's MTV Video Music Awards. The pair were also the most nominated VMA artists in 2009, scoring nine nods apiece.

News of the "Video Phone" collabo comes just days after it was confirmed that Lady Gaga would appear on an upcoming episode of Gossip Girl. As Rolling Stone reported this morning, following the death of the Fame Kills tour, Lady Gaga announced that she'll embark on her own Monster Ball trek in late November.

Mariah Carey | 1995

Serendipity stuck when Mariah Carey rediscovered the glitchy Tom Tom Club hook, a sample of which is the heart of this upbeat slice of dance pop. "I had the melody idea for 'Fantasy' and I was listening to the radio and heard 'Genius of Love,' and I hadn't heard it in a long time," Carey said. "It reminded me of growing up and listening to the radio and that feeling the song gave me seemed to go with the melody and basic idea I had for 'Fantasy.' I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
