Every time Gaga releases a music video, you never really know exactly what you’re going to get. Like some other in her collection, the nearly 14-minute clip for “Marry the Night” plays like a short film. In fact, the music doesn’t start until Gaga pushes in an 8-track tape at the 8:47 mark. Before that happens all kinds of erratic scenes fill the screen. In the beginning Gaga is wheeled into a hospital ward that appears to be located inside a hotel, and during this part she narrates her inspirations behind the nurses’ wardrobe, among other things. Once the music kicks in so does the choreography; Gaga and her dancers once again show off their fancy moves and impress. Go on and grab some popcorn then mash play to experience another wild glimpse into the mind of Lady Gaga.
Woah, there is so much going on in Gaga’s latest music video. When she posted the link to the video earlier today Mother Monster tweeted, “You must love all + every part of me, as must I, for this complex + incomprehensible force to be true.” In the clip she jumps into a myriad of guises; one moment she’s a cyborg walking along Nebraskan cornfields and the next she’s trapped in a bathtub as a mermaid. There are flashes of her being experimented on, and in a rockin’ dance sequence she’s got an electric blue wig on her crown. The strangest part, though, has to be the scene where a makeup-less Gaga is playing the piano and her male alter ego Jo Calderone grooves to the beat beside her. Yep, that’s Lady Gaga underneath the greasy dangling hair, white tee, and smoking cigarette. And when they embrace, well, that sent a bizarre shiver down my spine.
So what does it all mean? Gaga told a radio station, “The idea that when you’re away from someone you love, it’s torture. I knew I wanted the video to be about me sprinting back and walking hundreds of thousands of miles to get him back.” But that doesn’t explain all the different egos in play here. It’s up to us for interpretation, I reckon. Anyhow, “Yoü and I” is definitely one of the best songs off Born This Way, and the video made for it strikes a fine chord. It’s beautifully shot, and the lyrics hold value. Flick on HD and mash play above.
Take a trip with Lady Gaga on the edge of glory in this brand spankin’ new video for her Born This Way single. Gaga travels back to the ’80s and takes revealing garment and pulsing dance moves and E Street Band sax player Clarence Clemons with her in the fun, upbeat clip.
After dropping four singles–count ’em “Born This Way,” “Judas,” “The Edge of Glory,” and “Hair“–Lady Gaga’s second studio album is finally in stores now. Two versions exist. The standard version contains 14 tracks, while the bonus track version tacks on an additional eight. On the whole Born This Way is receiving positive reviews. RapUp’s put together a nice review roundup, if you’re so inclined.
Update: Amazon is selling the album for 99 cents. What are you waiting for? This is a steal!
Update 2 (5/30): And just like that the special offer is gone. Still, Amazon is selling the album for less than iTunes at a low $6.99.
Check out the latest music video from the Haus of Gaga. The religious-themed single receives an appropriately-matched video that is directed by Gaga and Laurieann Gibson. Lady Gaga as Mary Magdalene gets caught in the middle of a love triangle of sorts between Jesus Christ and Judas the traitor (portrayed by The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus). Beyond the controversial religious tone, the choreography is all kinds of fun. Born This Way drops May 23.
Gaga has replaced the electronic energy from the original rendition of “Born This Way” and swapped it out for a country twang vibe. And you want to know something? It’s even better! What do you think?
Somehow, someway Lady Gaga manages to top herself when it comes to making music videos. As you would expect, this seven minute tale wraps together the lead single off her second album and a story about rebirth including the opening “Manifesto of Mother Monster” backed by Bernard Herrmann’s Vertigo theme. It gets weird when Gaga starts giving birth to slimy versions of herself, but things start to stabilize when the catchy track begins to play about two-and-a-half minutes in. Grab some popcorn, turn up the volume, and enjoy Mother Monster’s latest and greatest. And FYI–she’s planning to release a second video featuring an acoustic version of the song.
After posting online teaser artwork and lyrics to her long-awaited and hyped new single “Born This Way,” Lady Gaga finally catered to her mass following of Little Monsters by releasing the track in full before she performs it live at the Grammys this Sunday. In essence the thumping track is an anthem for the gay community. During the outro she whispers, “Same DNA, but born this way.” It’s certainly a catchy tune that will grow on you over time. Interestingly, the song took ten minutes for Gaga to compose. She told Vogue, “I wrote it in ten f—ing minutes, and it is a completely magical message song. And after I wrote it, the gates just opened, and the songs kept coming. It was like an immaculate conception.” Her second album also titled Born This Way is due out this May. Listen to the song above, download it at iTunes here. Hop after the break to see the tease and final cover art. READ MORE Single: Lady Gaga — “Born This Way”
