  3. BarbzRUs December 5, 2013

    Slayage. Just slayage.

  4. BeyWhoUWanna December 5, 2013

    This is how you do it! Yes yes yes yes yes girl, this is how you share an important message without boring people. The best part was the poem she read about the smart kids who wasted their minds because of drugs.

    Lana, you just earned yourself a new stan.

  6. Iconic cici December 5, 2013

    GaGa is true ARTPOP this a try hard mess.. next

  7. Lana Del Slay December 5, 2013

    We’re not even worthy of your greatness queen.

  8. TurntUp4Cici December 5, 2013

    I can’t even fathom how good this was, like I deadass feel like she taught me something.

  9. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) December 5, 2013

    That was actually very entertaining! I never paid to much attention to Lana (and probably still won’t) but this was cool. The cinematography was great! *waits for stan war to erupt*

  10. JOHNVIDAL December 5, 2013

    I liked Lana since day one (unlike most people in TGJ). Her music is good, her studio voice is perfect for what she wants to create and her videos are also great (Ride is amazing). Obviously she´s very bad at live singing and that´s why many of you say she can´t sing at all. But as long as she has talent in other departments she deserves to have her contract, unlike others.

    SO BEAUTIFUL AND THE POEM,that is what I call art.

  12. Rosie Stan December 5, 2013

    Beautiful. Just beautiful. The imagery and cinematography are outstanding.
    Dead at the Z squad calling making her out as ‘unknown’ when she was the second most written about celebrity in 2013 according to google(that’s without any new album release). I can’t wait for rosie to come a drag you all to hell and back. I’m ready for ULTRAVIOLENCE.

  13. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) December 5, 2013

    @Johnvidal it’s always funny when I come across someone who says “I liked so and so from day one” or “I was a fan before they got famous” etc, and my response is always and?? Lol. So juvenile when people go there with the “I knew her before you” mess lol

  14. Rosie Stan December 5, 2013

    This is what tranny wishes she could make….. true art.

  15. Iconic cici December 5, 2013

    Ok i judged this without even watching this and i must take back my two statements this s*** really slayed. I actually loved it. she still can’t sing tho. :-/

  16. miao December 5, 2013

    The same old (boring) stuff. Diversity is not her thing. I guess she’s ‘just an angel looking to get fu*ked hard’. Next.

  17. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) December 5, 2013

    @IconicCici LOL! you squad members usually go in without reading or viewing the actual content(s) of the post and leave uneducated, ignorant comments anyway. So it’s ok, we’re use to it lol

  18. KatyKadet December 5, 2013

    I don’t even know what to say. Simply divine.

  19. Molly December 5, 2013

    Now this was creative and didnt seem forced like GaGas b*******. 4/5 kudos lana i was entertained.

  20. ItsCheryl2bh December 5, 2013

    Gaga needs to take notes 2bfair. She took a serious story and made it so effortless. I watched it on the train home but got so lost in it I missed my stop.

  21. CandyWarhol December 5, 2013

    The CSquad shouldn’t watch this movie. They should be writing more letters to Ciara! JAJAJAJAJJAJAJAJAJAJAJJAAJAJAJAJAJAJAAJAJAJAJAA.

  22. Super Cisus December 5, 2013

    I knew u dumb b****** would be pressed over ci. What’s new you loose booty bottoms!!!!

  23. Motivation December 5, 2013

    This is art, just like Madonna’s secret Progect, this is the idea of someone who creates art not someone who pretends to be the art in Pop culture/music, take notes Gaga.

  24. Rosie December 5, 2013

    Totally worth the wait! I’m so proud of her, the last 24 hours or so was a great time to be Team Lana.
    Also I’m really happy to see everyone here praising her!

  25. TheOuyonB December 5, 2013

    I’m really digging this. I think she has changed the game with this one. This is well executed and overflowing in creativity. Love it.

  26. Me December 5, 2013

    A masterpiece, a perfect ending to such an incredible era.

    We are ready for ULTRAVIOLENCE!!!

  27. B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare December 5, 2013

    Wow. That was wonderful! Beautifully shot, bizarre, lush…loved it!

    I’m still trying to wrap my mind around her use of Ginsberg’s “HOWL” in that particular scene. On the surface, I get it but I think there is more. Plus, her reference to Whitman’s poem. So much…

    I bought “Born To Die” when it first came out. Listened to it. Put it away. This short film makes me want to break out that album out again.

    Great film.

    Btw, can we stop with the Gaga comparisons. Her and Lana’s aesthetics are COMPLETELY different. Preference is one thing but trying to compare which is “art” & which is not is completely pointless. Apples to Oranges.

    @ROSIE

    Your B**** Slayed, Ain’t No Doubt about It.

    Loved Every Second. 😀

  29. Mary Mary Why You Buggin December 5, 2013

    Gorgeous
