Lady Gaga has made herself impossible to ignore. Between her outrageous outfits, peculiar performances and downright bizarre mannerisms, it’s hard to say which draws the most attention. One thing that can’t be denied, despite her quirks and eccentric style, she has an unbelievable voice and remarkable musical abilities that exceed anyone else's in the pop industry right now.
A lot of people think Gaga developed this strange persona to make herself known. Once people saw her they started talking and once they were talking they couldn’t help but listen. Regardless of whether this personality is fake or who she really is, she’s not shaking it. It is her brand and she embraces it with everything she does, especially her newest music video, “Marry the Night.”
The 14-minute-long music video shows Gaga being pulled into a psych ward of sorts on a gurney. The first 7 and a half minutes are a combination of her talking about wanting to be a star and how she’s destined for success because she has nothing else to lose. It’s a dark video, and seems like it resembles The Black Swan’s twisted motif through parts of it.
Artistic as she may be, I was pretty weirded out. It’s not every day that you see a celebrity trolling around naked covered in Cheerios and flailing in a bathtub. She dances topless and she rocks out in flames. Truly, it’s something you should watch at least once, just to say you’ve seen it.
The star made the announcement to her little monsters on Twitter, saying, “And…my video is now leaking like an old tampon.” Pretty repulsive announcement Gaga, but way to embrace your peculiar personality! I wouldn’t expect anything less.
What do you think of Lady Gaga’s new music video for “Marry the Night?” Is it over the top or just another case of Gaga being Gaga?
