I don’t really know how I feel about Lady Gaga’s new video. It’s done by the amazing Nick Knight, who shot Björk’s Pagan Poetry.
Gaga’s video is a mish mash of references and recycled ideas from Superman, through the body modification artist Orlan, Goldfrapp, the Bible as well as the usual suspects – Madonna and Michael Jackson. Oh, she looks like Rick Genest at some point. And so far I haven’t really found any product placements in it, too.
I think the best are the birth scenes in the beginning. Pure art.
What do you think a bout it?
