    • Nitty-riqua August 19, 2013

      I get what you are saying but think that’s the point. That’s what Lady Gaga does. Hence the line about being a Jeff Koons fan.

    • PRINCE MACHIAVEL August 20, 2013

    LOVED IT!!!!!!!!

  13. Rihboy August 19, 2013

    Sinister, outlandish, crazy, coke derived behavior thrown together in a video and called art. I pass. No ranks for this vid in the future.

    • Lol August 19, 2013

      The same can be said about rihanna’s video

  14. bqueen August 19, 2013

    ok so the video is a drop better than the actual song, which isnt saying much,

    i saw a lot of imagery from other artists videos,

    the one thing im impressed with is her body, its flawless, she looks healthy and not anorexic like in BTW

    forgettable overall

    • tits mcgee August 19, 2013

      Everything you said.

  17. Dev August 19, 2013

    Well…..Same $hit different day really…..

  18. AmbeRussell August 19, 2013

    One thing nobody can take away from gaga is she always delivers when it come to music videos. She made watching music videos fun again (08 vmas nominees were all pretty bland) but I must say, for me, she did not bring much. Magic show on a plain stage…weird images she will later say have more meaning than it does at face value etc. and it is for a song that is not music fan friendly. Main gaga fans like it, compared to the general public liking it. Run the world is 1 of beys worse singles…her worse lead single we all can say that, but the video backs it up and made it better with great choreo…this video doesn’t do that and it looks like Laurie Ann knock off dancing.

    • Mark111 August 19, 2013

      Agree 100% Videos became s*** right before Gaga came out. No one got excited for a video premier since MJ, Janet and Madonna days.

    • toohotfortv August 19, 2013

      Comparing “Run the world” to this is hilarious. If anything, you can at least say that Gaga is TRYING to be artistic. That’s not Beyonce’s schtick. If you’re not familiar with the references then that’s that, but to dismiss the video bc you don’t understand or bc it doesn’t immediately catch your eye is a bit simple. And one one hand you say “she always delivers when it comes to music videos” . So which is it?

  19. Suicide Blonde August 19, 2013

    I give you ten dollars to whoever guess what part of this video is inspired by Madonna’s ‘Fever’ video.

    • tits mcgee August 19, 2013

      i’ll give you ten dollars if you can tell me what outfit was inspired by Janet’s iconic Rolling Stones cover from the “janet.” era? 😉

      • Suicide Blonde August 19, 2013

        The part when she’s on bed 🙂

      • truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) August 19, 2013

        The bra hands across the breast chile

    • bqueen August 19, 2013

      how about the part that shes rolling around on the floor with the brown hair kind of looks like one of madonnas looks in “hollywood”

      • Suicide Blonde August 19, 2013


    • tits mcgee August 19, 2013

      @ suicide

      No I was talking about the “hands” bra Gaga has on when dancing. Lol.

      • Suicide Blonde August 19, 2013


  20. THE HIVE August 19, 2013

    Its funny how people get on here just to hate.
    Yall watch videos just to find negativity in it and to write negative comments
    So you can get “likes” on your comments like your on instagram or something.
    Smh… Fatass fagged-out queens these days

    • Dev August 19, 2013

      Sorry. I watched it to see if there was a change in artistry and clearly there isn’t. I can be a fan of a video and not the music and this was the first time i had heard both together. the song was rubbish and the video was the same concept more or less as the rest to be honest.

  21. DIGGER BEY August 19, 2013

    Slayeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed! The b**** Served Up Some Serious Slayage! Only two b****** n the game can serve Slayage like this and that’s Mother Monster and THE QUEEN! I luv this s***! I luv her with the big hair going crazy. And the visual is a 10! Hands down the best video I’ve saw this year! Roll on MTV VMAS! Im ready for her to dragggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg b****** since I can’t get it from THE QUEEN!

    • Belladonna1363 August 19, 2013

      LONG LIVE GAGA & BEY the best damn artist since MJ & Madonna!!! And Everyone knows it. Fu*k a number1 single they sell Tours,Albums, They make Money & most of all they can perform!!!!!!!!(And know other female artist can perform on there level other then ciara)

  22. Beyawnce August 19, 2013

    There was too much going on in the video , it was alright , could do without the swan part.

  23. Ell August 19, 2013

    this is such a good glossy video and it’s fun to watch…like….the choreography and the outfits…yo. and she looks great

    totally gives the song a second life imo

  24. Patrick August 19, 2013

    I like it. I am not a gaga stan, but this is fun. I love the costumes and its weird, which I enjoy. This is good stuff.

  25. Lovebird (roar – prism – 10.22.23) August 19, 2013

    What a try hard f****** mess,this is so bad it would be funny if it wasn’t so sad. This t***** is clearly self destructing with FLOPause flopping harder than Party feat Andre 3000.

    I cannot at this t***** and the faux she’s trying to push as art.

    • beyonce and gaga on my telephone August 19, 2013


      • Lovebird (roar – prism – 10.22.23) August 19, 2013

        Lana Del Rey is not a flop, her album has sold over 4 million copies to date.

        My fav, who is outselling both of your favs, has got more talent in a guitar strum than t***** Caca will ever have in her entire life and whatever is left of her career.

      • FAF August 19, 2013

        ^lies LOL “more vocals in one line”

        SO TONIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITE where the vocals @?

      • . : : h 2 o : : . August 19, 2013

        Too bad she’s never seeing Bey or GaGa’s total album sales or tour numbers :mrgreen:

      • FAF August 19, 2013

        do y’all think monsters are boycotting? like whats the tea? I can not believe katy is still #1 with hardly any promo

      • Lovebird (roar – prism – 10.22.23) August 19, 2013

        So are we going to ignore the fact that Teenage Dream outsold 4, or how it is close to outselling Express yourself this way?

        @Faf I think they are just bored with her. I don’t know.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . August 19, 2013

        I wasn’t comparing “2YO Children’s Ice Cream” to “4”. I meant to say Bey has already had at least 3 albums since ’98 every one of which swallows Katy’s whole career, and she was much younger when she released them.

        Even if you’re not here for old career achievements, with some Asian dates “The Mrs. Carter Show” will be a bigger commercial success than TD/Prism whole era. In other words, Bey can sell f****** EIGHTY two copies of her last album and she’ll still p*** all over Katy commercial success – wise.

    • Lovebird (roar – prism – 10.22.23) August 19, 2013

      Why is Katy Perry outselling the new king of pop (your words) by over 50% on iTunes?

      • beyonce and gaga on my telephone August 19, 2013


      • Lovebird (roar – prism – 10.22.23) August 19, 2013

        Belladonna called Caca the new king of Pop, why is Katy outselling the new King of Pop on iTunes? I really want to know.

      • Belladonna1363 August 19, 2013

        @LOVEBIRD Well My Dear other then Born This Way single non of Gaga’s songs Have gone right to number1 but like she has many times be4 her Video will make it jump off & The best part is on Sunday when Katy goes head dto head with her at the VMAS Thats when things are really going to come to light. Feel Me Boo!lol

  27. Fierce & all -Not here for b****** that can only slay in studios August 19, 2013

    Kinda left me underwhelmed like Rihanna’s “You da one”. However, it does set up for a nice premise to the album. Nice customes and imagery throughout. I just thought there was gonna be a mini movie like Telephone though. Guess I was wrong.
    Side note, i wonder if the person who directed this was the same one who directed Azealia Bank’s video “Yung Repunzel”

  28. beyonce and gaga on my telephone August 19, 2013

    life haz really changed since i met is my bday and im just looking down memory lane.i remember when gaga waznt yet that huge,my dad actually told me about thiz hot new singer called gaga.when i saw a video he showed me of her performing on a piano i loved biggest fear waz if her and bey never got along.when telephone and video phone were released i felt alive.gaga haz definetly influenced me more than any other singer.i used to be shy and held back but now i can do anything just like outfitz look a lot like herz,everyone callz me baby gaga,i sometimes try my best to get her eyeliner look.she haz also been a big part of my emotional matter what i will alwayz love her..sometimes i find it hard to pick between gaga and bey but i would die for either bringz me to tears just thinking about her.

    thiz woman haz done so much for me emotionally,she haz made me alive and not having her around since tha hip injury killed me.. whether tha song suckz or not i will buy it…people keep telling me that im obsessed but i call it love…

    im looking for a male little monster to settle down with in tha next 3 yearz,a beyhive,bieliber or animal are also accepted as long as u are willing to get matching tATTS WRITTEN LG ON OUR WEDDING FINGERZ….

  29. SLAY_HIVE August 19, 2013

    It was cute, but kinda too much going on…too many looks, got a.little confusing…i would habe loved to see more of the choreography…The video was too dark for such a light pop song imo

  30. BEYSUS OVER JESUS August 19, 2013

    SLAY GODGA !!!

  31. RoyalKev August 19, 2013

    I actually liked a lot of it, but I saw a lot of inspiration as well. It’s nothing wrong with that, but i can’t stop thinking over other artists when I see Gaga’s works. That’s the thing that’s not so great about it. If you know music you’ll see Bowie, Annie Lennox, Grace Jones too all in this gumbo. I guess this is her way of trying to fool her critics into thinking she’s always been “wacky Gaga” and not a Madonna clone, so she keeps trying to go further left (by inserting her other favorite artists)… And again, I like the video for the most part, but this is a rehash. Btw, her dancing is still atrocious!

    • RoyalKev August 19, 2013

      *can’t stop thinking of

  32. mildred August 19, 2013

    Hate it, it is as dumd & basic as she is.

  33. Lovebird (roar – prism – 10.22.23) August 19, 2013

    Anyway FLOPause has fallen again from #7 to #8, why aren’t the monsters buying this s***** song? Where are they anyway?

  34. quickie August 19, 2013

    This womam is a f***** genius ..I don’t care what any1 says..U can never look at a gaga video and say it’s just like her last video or 1 of her videos. Like Sam say’s this for sure is video of the year so far..I haven’t seen a video this year with better visuals than this..

    • Fierce & all -Not here for b****** that can only slay in studios August 19, 2013

      I don’t care if there weren’t any other better videos of the year. The video should be able to hold its own. First of all, this looks low budget but I understand not every gaga does can live up the the budget of bad romance. However, it coulda been more inserted.

  35. Raj August 19, 2013

    I will say this though. This video isn’t as “wild and crazy” as people would say and was expected. This video was more so very Theater type. Like you would see if you want to see a Broadway play. You have keep in mind though, Gaga is a theater major, she isn’t going to give you no thrown together video. Theater Majors are taught to express yourself fully and nothing is crazy, and everything is art! You have to understand the mindset of them to fully get what they are doing. Can’t stop watching this video. Gaga is awesome. You’re true fans understand you. Let the haters hate.

  36. cake like lady gaga August 19, 2013

    The slayage is real!!!

  37. lastDON August 19, 2013

    Gaga is a genius and this video is refreshing.

    • Ren August 19, 2013

      You’re a f**.

  38. Lovebird (roar – prism – 10.22.23) August 19, 2013

    U can never look at a gaga video and say it’s just like her last video or 1 of her videos.

    You can however look at a Caca video and say it’s another artists video. No originality whatsoever.

  39. FAF August 19, 2013

    Well, I kind of understand why she would copy other artists because when she’s saying “I live for the applause” its basically saying, I love pop culture I am a combination of everything art (Bjork, Janet, Britney, Grace, etc) but I thought it would be more thematic this was too many things thrown together in less than 4 minutes, it actually was confusing. it gave me a bit of Britney Circus, too

  40. Tea Drinker August 19, 2013

    Just a desperate Gaga doing crazy things, seen it all before. It’s just a mess. The song is falling.

  41. cake like lady gaga August 19, 2013

    AGAIN!!! @shitbird, the biggest Monster on TGJ is doing the most. He is in every GaGa post, stanning like the Monster he is.

    YESSSS b****, you better stan for the queen 😀 😀 😀

  42. JJFan1814 August 19, 2013

    Yo this s*** is SICK!!!!!!!!!! Omg.

    Video was way better than I thought it would be. I love the song and love the video even more. Hope this era pans out well for Gaga! Cause I was stanning hard for BTW! The hype for that era was surreal!

    • Fierce & all -Not here for b****** that can only slay in studios August 19, 2013

      The Fame Monster is her best era. That’s what made me Stan.

      • Toto August 19, 2013

        The video is great ! Loved it.

  43. Vixenista August 19, 2013

    We all know why GaGa released the video earlier than Katys’. I’m sure Katy is laughing at the desperate antics this lady has pulled off lately. Terrible PR! Katy 1 GaGa 0

  44. Mike August 19, 2013

    This is mess. Way too much s*** going on and it feels like a rehash of some of her other videos.

  45. JJFan1814 August 19, 2013

    You can however look at a Caca video and say it’s another artists video. No originality whatsoever.




    • Slayty Perry (ROAR) August 19, 2013

      Roar was written recorded and produced before Brave was released. You tried it though.

      • JJFan1814 August 19, 2013

        Not sure if you saw Katy’s tweet in regards to Sara Bareilles’ Brave video sis, when Katy was still recording.

        Show me the receipts

  46. pat August 19, 2013

    OVAH!! loved the costumes and the dance sequence

  47. Mike August 19, 2013

    1. I’m not a fan, but I admire her work and strength, like her voice and she’s an amazing performer

    2. I think it could’ve been a much better video. It pales in comparison to her former videos, like “Born This Way”, “You and I”, “Telephone”, which were so amazingly different from everything else that was being done. This one has SOME sequences that grab your attention, but not quite so many as her previous videos. Even “Edge of Glory” I found better, cause even if it was a simple video, the atmosphere was really well created

  48. JJFan1814 August 19, 2013

    If you stan for Beyonce or Katy, please do not have the NERVE to come for Gaga as far as imitating work of another artist. Not only does Bey commit that crime, she also hijack song credits.

    Katy pretty much covers another artist song with different lyrics, add a few instruments and voila!!!!!

    (My faves Rihanna and Janet, as far as I’m concern are original. Jan is a musical pioneer. And Rihanna is a muthafuckin trendsetter, so don’t try! Thank ya kindly)

        Someone not pretending to be a Janet Jackson stan when I’m just a Navy. And am I lying?

      • JJFan1814 August 19, 2013

        The fact that you think you have to stan for one artist and not two, three, etc…Makes you very ignorant. In that case, I won’t even bother with you sis.

        Maybe one day you can come to terms with finding interest and inspiration in more than one artist that you can favor. :-/

      • Mya August 19, 2013

        Changing the subject I see.

    • Slayty Perry (ROAR) August 19, 2013

      Oh the delusion got taken to a new level. Apart from California Gurls sounding like Tik Tok and ET sounding like All The Things She Said, what has Katy copied? Compare that list to Rihanna and Gaga and let me see what you get. You tried it again.

    • Bey Fan August 19, 2013

      Rihanna??? Original? LMAOOOOOOO…..

      • SHUT UP B**** August 19, 2013


    • royalkev August 19, 2013

      I was actually going to say you have a point until I saw Rihanna’s name at the bottom. I personally believe Janet is one of the most original artist I’ve ever seen as well. Still I find you to be so bias when it comes to Beyonce. Just about every current artists out now is recycling old ideas, that’s about at least 90% of the industry today. Lady Gaga may actually be the worst offender, so don’t pretend it’s unfair to point that out. I’m not knocking her talent. Gaga’s good in certain areas, but if everyone dishing it out to Bey (and others), why wouldn’t Gaga see her share of that?

    • JOHNVIDAL August 19, 2013

      You´re right except for the Rihanna bit.

  49. Raj August 19, 2013

    What i find funny on here, is that a lot of the haters keep listing other artist names that they said she copied. Need I remind you those are artist Gaga said it herself she looked up to and has inspired her so much? Like Madonna, Gaga said that She is the biggest Madonna fan you’ll ever know! She also said she will always pay homage to Madonna in all her work to show how much she loves her. Like other artist who were inspired by Michael Jackson, you’ll always see them take from the chapter of MJ’s vids or music. So sit. Gaga is not stealing s***. She gives props where props are due.

    I like it. The video is better than the song.

  52. KingBeyCyrus August 19, 2013

    I love it tbh GAGA is a genius when is comes to stuff like this she’s just weird and that makes her so different.

    @JJFAN1814 You consider Rihanna ORIGINAL… LOL didnt the b**** get sue for copying someone else video tho I CANT AT YOU

    • JJFan1814 August 19, 2013

      Did I say Rihanna was original? I said she was a TRENDSETTER.

      You tried.

      • Bey Fan August 19, 2013

        “My faves Rihanna and Janet, as far as I’m concern are original. ”

        Thats what you said.

    • Mark111 August 19, 2013

      No one is original, get over it. But Rihanna is THE trendsetter of this gen. Deal with it!

      • Rellz August 19, 2013

        Dont come for Hives for calling JJ Fan out. The b**** claimed Rihanna was original which is a lie.

      • Fierce & all -Not here for b****** that can only slay in studios August 19, 2013

        Riri is a trend setter….but original? No.

    • caribbean native August 19, 2013

      not a f****** H** talking about plagiarism b**** bye and see COUNTDOWN video, and to make it worse it flopped lol rihanna shits on your fave

      • Rellz August 19, 2013

        B**** shut up. The Hive knows all about their fave but will not stand delusional ass Navys thinking their fave is not guilty of doing the same thing just so they can come for Beyonce.

  53. Slayty Perry (ROAR) August 19, 2013

    I’m not surprised that she plagiarized David Bowie yet again. After all the Applause artwork was a rip off of his album cover. Nothing new to see.

    • Fierce & all -Not here for b****** that can only slay in studios August 19, 2013

      Your avi<<<Betty Paige

      • JJFan1814 August 19, 2013

        1 word: Brave

        Keep the plagiarism claims to yourself Sis. :-/

    • PRINCE MACHIAVEL August 20, 2013

      Oh God Some Katy’s Satan Are So F****** Weak And Low, They Don’t Even Deserve Any Attention!

  54. KingBeyCyrus August 19, 2013

    @JJFAN1814 Rihanna is no damn trendsetter everything she has done/is doing has been done before so stop reaching and find the nearest seat.

    • JJFan1814 August 19, 2013

      From fashion, to hairstyles, hair colors, lessors jumping on her same producers//songwriters, sound alike songs (Kelly Rowland – Lay It On Me, Nicole Shitsinger – Right There),

      You got to be delusional to deny that. I guess because Bey isn’t known to have an influence on the other girls like Rih has….? :-/

      • Rellz August 19, 2013

        Bey isn’t known to have influence? Beyoncé doesn’t thrive off fashion and image she said it herself but she has influence for other reasons. Rihanna would be nothing in the industry without her image, Beyoncé on the other hand, would.

      • Rellz August 19, 2013

        All you have to do is google the list or artists influenced by Beyoncé. Its more than Rihanna honey.

    • SHUT UP B**** August 19, 2013


      • Rellz August 19, 2013

        But the Hive are not the ones claiming she did.

      • Rellz August 19, 2013

        And people look up to Beyonce more than Rihanna *googles list of artists influenced by Beyonce

      • Rellz August 19, 2013

        Beyonce as an act, is not about fashion and setting trends

    • Fierce & all -Not here for b****** that can only slay in studios August 19, 2013

      I may shade Rihanna’s talent but the girl is definitely a trend setter ESP with black women.

  55. Mark111 August 19, 2013

    Parts I liked and parts I didn’t. She begging the illuminati to save her, lol!!!!!!

  56. Tea Drinker August 19, 2013

    Looks like her label cut back her video budgets. This is a cheap, low budget, 480pi mess.

    • Raj August 19, 2013

      whatever this video is awesome. Why every time they post something of Gaga you checking for her? It’s people like you who keeps her in the medias eye. Ya’ll always checking up on her. I never check up on artist I don’t like. I never waste my time, because I don’t care what they are doing. Keep hating boo cause it’s people like you who keeps her relevant!

    Oooops : ‘Marina Abramovic Admits To Lady Gaga She Was Just F****** With Her This Entire Time : Serbian conceptual artist Marina Abramovic admitted today to pop singer Lady Gaga that she was “just messing with her the entire time” and that she actually really hates her music, style, and “art”.

    Abramovic said that she decided to come clean to Gaga after watching her go through the “Abramovic method”, something she says she made up just to see if Gaga would really do it.

    “When I said couple of years ago that I admire Lady Gaga, I thought that she and everyone else would get the sarcasm, but no. People actually believed me when I called her “the future of art”. So I said, what the heck, let’s just go with the flow and see what happens,” said Marina Abramovic.

    Abramovic, who kept the singer in belief her music was “revolutionary and groundbreaking” for more than a year, says that the joke has gone too far.

    “In the beginning it was funny, because she is so gullible. I tell her to do some crazy s*** and she does it. Now I am afraid that she will do something dangerous if she continues to draw her inspiration from my words,” concludes Abramovic, adding that this was her best prank she pulled in years.

    Lady Gaga was unavailable for comment, but The Global Edition found out that the young singer was “convinced that this was just another of Marina’s motherly ways to express positive emotions.” ‘

      Umm where’s the official link to all this? I won’t believe s*** until you show us the source of where you got this information. Receipt please.

        Umm… maybe if you learn to read….******-with-her-this-entire-time/

      I hope you know that isn’t a real news site. Everybody is saying that site is not a real news site.

    • Raj August 19, 2013

      So I even got more info about that site being a flaw. They about try to get Marina Abramovic to let everybody know that was a flaw site.

      • Todd August 19, 2013

        I posted it cause its funny….

  58. JOHNVIDAL August 19, 2013

    People really want to hate Gaga now LOL The video is GREAT. Stop it. It was not even over the top actually. I really like it and it fits the song. She´s a real artist. Way above the rest of basic girls of the last generation. Hell the video was even simple to me knowing the videos she has done before lol. What do u expect from her? To do nothing in a video a la Rihanna?

    • Raj August 19, 2013

      Can I say you are awesome for this. I think I love you lol. I’m a little monster, and I know a lot of people don’t get Gaga, and that’s ok…. because I do understand her and that’s all that matters. I just think people need to stop with all this negativity. Anyways, i do agree with you. This video isn’t over the top and it does go with the song.

      • JOHNVIDAL August 19, 2013

        Well I´m not a little moster but I´m a person who tries to have f****** common sense and tries to be as unbiased as possible. Gaga is a better artist, musican and singer than the “artists” most of the people in the comments section in Gaga´s posts stan for. Just like it´s obvious Applause, even if not my cup of tea, is way better than Roar. Can´t believe Katy Perry fans are feeling themselves this much when their fave released that mediocre and basic song which seems to be written for a 15 years old Disney star despite being like 30 years old. Seriously!

    • RoyalKev August 19, 2013

      I am not a Katy or Gaga fan, but Roar is clearly not as good as Applause. Gaga didn’t exactly hit it on the nail either, but her song is definitely the superior one out of the two. The struggle to convince people otherwise is hilarious… Btw, I really don’t need anyone to point out where these songs are at on Itunes either, quality has nothing to do with sales.

      • JOHNVIDAL August 20, 2013

        I agree!

  59. JOHNVIDAL August 19, 2013

    I love that bra btw 🙂

  60. Eclectech August 19, 2013

    Honestly, I’m not a Lady Gaga fan, but I thought the video was amazing, visually stunning and certainly should be considered a contender for video of the year.

  61. The Truth August 19, 2013

    The video is more attractive than the song. This phase of music is not hot anymore. Only real fans will be entertained by it. i like GaGa and I dare her to try something different.

  62. caribbean native August 19, 2013

    omg this was so much trash lollllllll trashhhhh lollll katy better slay

  63. Darren August 19, 2013

    LOL this is sooooooo freakin stupid. she looks liek she doesnt know the words and is mumbling. This looks like it was thrown together in an hour. Terrible.

  65. FRESH NAVY August 19, 2013

    GaGa is a genius.

    It wasnt overproduced or too long

    it was perfect

    i LIVED





  66. JER August 19, 2013

    Absolute f****** MESS. She took a CAREER’S worth of ideas, looks, and imagery and threw it in one video. There’s absolutely no editing, no ability to reign anything in, just tasteless try hard vomit from beginning to end. I honstly don’t think I’ve seen a video try that hard in a long time. She will be lucky if this era has half the longevity the short-lived Born This Way era had…. ch….

    This garbage is pure fagg0try.

  68. Rihanna killed beyho’s career August 19, 2013

    What the hell was that? Sorry it was too much going on. Lady Gaga is just pointless.

  69. sainthawthorne August 19, 2013

    I think half the fun of any piece of art, is interpreting it. Artists whose visuals are as intrinsic to the music as the beat or the melody (e.g. Marilyn Manson, Bjork, Grace Jones or Bowie) are always more interesting to watch because they have a message, point or something valid to say that transcends the music. After watching the video a couple of times, it’s obvious theres a lot here to interpret and I think by now, after 20 music videos we all know Gaga doesn’t do things by halves.

    After watching her interview on GMA where she breaks things down a little bit I actually love the video a whole lot more, here’s some of the more choice influences & themes:
    1. A lot of the writhing around on the floor comes from her practising the choreography lying down (after the surgery)
    2. The many different looks in the video are representative of her love of transformation, specifically transforming as magic.
    3. The single cover (as well as the subsequent look in the video) initially started off as Gaga being made up like a court jester, clown or harlequin. Traditionally the role of the court jester was to entertain so as to garner “applause” from their audience.
    4. While lyrically the song can come across as egotistical, she explained that audiences applaud when they’re happy, and she lives to make the fans happy.
    5. The ARTPOP campaign is predicated by the exchange of images through technology. The image of her sitting on a chair made of motherboards and microchips is representative of the way in which her fans and her interact with each other, i.e. social media.
    6. As with all artists, theres postmodern referencing happening all over the place, the swan imagery is in fact a theme Inez & Vinoodh (directors of this video) explored with Bjork on her Vespertine album, the black and white sequences with Gaga wearing the head wrap evokes the character “Death” in Igmar Bergmans “The Seventh Seal”, The hand bra which reminds me of Janet Jacksons infamous rolling stone cover from the 90’s, the clam shell bikini and long flowing hair is a clear reference to Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus”, the glass wings were actually a costume David Bowie used in the mid 80’s for his “Glass Spider” tour and the flat stylised backdrop at the beginning is reminiscent of German expressionist cinema,

    As i said, a lot to take in, but i found I enjoyed it a whole lot more when it was a little clearer of what was going on.

  70. Nitty-riqua August 19, 2013

    To everyone who keeps commenting on Gaga copying/ripping off other artists…That is the point, and she admits it in this song. She reffers to jeff Koons. I think Lady Gaga is an artists who performs/creates music, then presents it as a hybrid of postmodernism and pop-art.

    PS Im not a little monster by any means.

  72. JOHNVIDAL August 20, 2013

    Watching the video the day after its debut again I have to say she just SLAYED. I dare her peers to make videos like her. They just can´t.

  73. jlove August 20, 2013
