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.
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.
