After the hook "Can't read my Poker Face" the backup singer says "He's got me like nobody" and then in the next line says "She's got me like nobody". Gaga explained in an interview with them that the line carries a bit of an undertone of confusion about love and sex. Upon release, "Poker Face" received critical acclaim.
Priya Elan from The Times , in a review for The Fame , said that "Poker Face" was one of the finest moments of the album with its "love-as-card-game cheek". She has refreshed the pop world in the US and UK at one of the slowest times of the year. With a focused artistic vision, a swagger in her interview style and above all, a fantastic collection of diverse pop nuggets, Gaga is playing her cards right—and "Poker" is another obvious ace.

It is set by a pool, as well as in a mansion. It begins with Gaga emerging from the pool wearing a mirror masquerade mask and a black sleeveless latex bodysuit with a jagged shoulder pad, with two Great Danes beside her.
She throws the mask aside and the song begins with a facial shot of Gaga singing it. Featured in the video are scenes of Gaga in a mansion and dancing poolside with her dancers in a turquoise leotard. The party gets wilder when all the party's guests strip down to their underwear, dance around, and share kisses with each other.
The video also features several white mannequins on her swimming pool deck. During the musical interlude before the "I won't tell you that I love you" hook, Gaga is shown in her trademark "Pop Music Will Never Be Low Brow" sunglasses while sitting beside the pool. The video ends with the head shot of Gaga singing the Mum-mum-mum-ma hook.
Gaga explained in the nineteenth episode of her "Transmission Gagavision" series the main idea behind the music video for "Poker Face": In some versions of the video, the words "muffin" being a slang term for a woman's vagina , " Russian Roulette " and "gun" are censored out bleeped. In June , Gaga held a reverse auction for one of the necklaces worn in the music video, designed by Brian Lichtenberg.

She started singing the second verse of "Poker Face" in a Bette Midler style accompanied by a violin player while wearing a shiny aluminum shoulder pad and platinum bleached blond wig. After the first chorus, the pace increased whence the original intro for the song started.
Gaga got up from her seat and proceeded to perform the song in the middle of the stage. She wore a silvery leotard with a giant star on her shoulder and tassels. As the song progressed to the intermediate verse, the violinist played a hoe-down version of the music and Gaga danced around frantically over the stage. The performance ended with Gaga staring towards the audience while revealing an open zipper, patched over her left eye. The performance was described an "alien-disco performance art.
First she played an acoustic version first before going on to the normal version,  and a rock version on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross. It prevented Ellen DeGeneres from greeting her because of the size of the gear. This performance, which included Gaga being trapped in a fake subway car surrounded by fake police officers, was billed as a tribute to New York City.
The piano version was played by Gaga while balancing on the piano stool and holding one leg up in the air. Gaga wore a dress made of guns and during the performance she pumped her hands in the air.
Midway through the performance, she was flung into the garbage chute of her 'Fame Factory' stage set, before emerging seated at a piano, facing Elton John.
