Tbh almost every The Fame era single cover is tragic. Either the image doesn't fit or then it's a graphic design mess :poot:

I think it pays a fun homage to the Pulp Fiction cover, which the MV is inspired by:

I think it's perfect. Gaga made the kitschy style her own and it reflects in the silliness of the music video which also has a bizarre aesthetic.

Dance In The Dark was suppose to be the single at the time so they needed to quickly make one for Telephone to replace it. That's why we got a beautiful one for DITD

maybe because the video was over-budget, they don't have much money left to hire a designer to design a decent poster

TFM could easily had 6 singles with addition of DITD, Monster and spechless. I'm sad they stoped after alejandro:selena:

DITD wasn't even up for debate until it came time for a 3rd single. The second single choice was Telephone because of the hype for the two artists at the time.
