\"Poker Face\" was written by Gaga and RedOne, while production was handled also by RedOne. Gaga stated in an interview that \"Poker Face\" was written by her as a pop song and was a tribute to her \"rock 'n' roll boyfriends\". She also stated that the main idea behind the song was sex and gambling. When Rolling Stone magazine asked about the meaning of the line \"bluffin' with my muffin\", Gaga explained that it really was a metaphor for her vulva, noting \"it's my pussy's poker face!\". She added that it came from a lyric \"Blueberry kisses, the muffin man misses them kisses\" from an unreleased track called \"Blueberry Kisses\" where a girl wanted her boyfriend to perform cunnilingus on her.
Sure, Justin Timberlake brought sexy back, but perhaps needs to prove his pop star prowess now that Gaga's topping the charts. On May 9's edition of \\\"Saturday Night Live,\\\" Timberlake parodied a host of popular hits in \\\"Plasticville,\\\" a sketch about a plastic surgery clinic amping up its sidewalk advertising campaign. Dressed as a 34DD breast implant, Timberlake belted out his rendition of Gaga's hit, changing her line \\\"Can't read my, can't read my, no you can't read my poker face\\\" to \\\"Just change my, just change my, come on and change my mediocre face.\\\"
But parodies aren't just for professionals. Online video genius \\\"Lady Gag\\\" turned Gaga's \\\"Poker Face\\\" into \\\"Butterface,\\\" an homage to the pop culture insult for a girl who's hot everywhere ... but her face. The video, which has been viewed almost 70,000 times since it was posted on YouTube in March, features a dude dressed like a lady gyrating to Gaga's beat and screeching hilariously modified lyrics including \\\"Can't believe, can't believe, you can't believe my butterface\\\" and \\\"But my body's like a Barbie and my face is like a Ken.\\\"
Lady Gaga wanted to write a song her boyfriend would like, forming the main idea behind the song being about bisexuality and was a tribute by Gaga to her rock 'n' roll boyfriends. Lyrically \"Poker Face\" is about sex and gambling. Gaga was inspired by her days as a New York City go-go dancer, and is one of her favorite songs of the album. The term, \"Poker Face\", represents the tricks she used to fool man, and sometimes woman that she was into them, so they would throw money at her. There is also an ambiguous part with \"He's got me like nobody\" and \"She's got me like nobody\" in the chorus, which caused some undertone of confusion about love and sex. According to BBC, the \"Mum-mum-mum-mah\" hook used in the song is copied from Boney M's 1977 (jobs) hit, \"Ma Baker\". When RLT Boulevard asked Gaga about the hook, she replied: \"I love Boney M so perhaps subconsciously it came out in the song\". During Rango Tanga, Lady Gaga admitted that Kiss FM was the only radio station to correctly censor the song during the chorus when she replaces \"poker face\" with \"fuck her face\". Although not in the official lyrics, the switch can be heard every second repetition of the phrase during the chorus. Some TV channels have also censored it.
The main version can be found on Lady Gaga's Vevo and iTunes. In the \"TV Edit\" version of the video, the words \"Russian\", \"gun\", and \"muffin\", are censored out by the \"mum-mum-mum-ma\" hook, and depending on the channel, \"fuck her face\" is changed to \"poker face\". There are seven director cuts of the video, all coming from Ray Kay's website. The \"1st Rough Cut\" and the second cut feature the words \"FX: Tilt Up To Stars\" in the end. The \"1st Rough Cut\" is the same length as the album version of the song, while other cuts are as long as the main video, lacking a chorus and outro. All cuts are similar to the final cut of the video, with the same concept and general theme, however, there are a few scenes that were added, while some were taken out. The images in the LCD-glasses in the released version of the video are photoshopped. In all seven cuts these images were exactly the same, but different to the final version.
For thesecond week in a row, Lady GaGa wowed the gays in Palm Springs, and while two weeks ago, it she sang to the \"Girls, Girls, Girls\" at the Dinah, this week she played to her \"Boys, Boys, Boys\" at the White Party. And she spilled about the meaning behind her \"Poker Face.\" At the 20th annual White Party last weekend, Lady GaGa played to a sea of gay men at the Palm Springs Convention Center. And while the ladies at the Dinah might have gone wild to hear her explain that \"Poker Face\" is about bisexuality, Lady Gaga opened up to the gay boys in the wee hours Sunday. The lyric, \"No he can't read my poker face,\" refers to Lady's private penchant for the ladies, she told the Palm Springs crowd, saying that the song is about being with a man but fantasizing about a woman, therefore he can't read her 'poker face,' which begs the question, why doesnt' she just get with a girl at that point
Taking to Facebook, one person wrote: \"So just seen a Facebook post about Lady Gaga 'Poker Face' and how the lyrics are not po-po-po-po poker face I can safely say I'm [mind blown emoji] and shall now be replacing the lyrics with the correct ones.\" 59ce067264
