New Video: Lady Gaga – ‘Million Reasons’

Published: Wednesday 14th Dec 2016 by Sam

It’s here!

Lady Gaga has unveiled the long-awaited video for ‘Million Reasons’ – the second single from her chart-topping new album ‘Joanne.’

The visual picks right up after the end of the clip for ‘Perfect Illusion,’ which itself debuted in September.

Its worldwide premiere on MTV comes after a slew of promotional performances globally.

With the track in an odd predicament (see: a fixture on the iTunes top 10, but in need of radio and streams), has its video arrived right on time?

Watch below and let us know…

We love us some Gaga, but what was that?

Because from where we’re sitting we just watched 4 minutes of “missed opportunity.”

For an artist so revered for her visual output, it’s odd to see her effectively squandering what has historically been her strongest card.

It’s one thing releasing a solid but polarizing album, but so-so visuals back-to-back?

Disappointed. Especially given the “hit” potential embedded in ‘Million Reasons.’

This deserved a ‘Hello’ esque effort, but instead felt like it was hastily thrown together.

Again, disappointed.

Your thoughts?

    I like this song. it sounds better Live

    • 👸 + ✈ = 💀 December 14, 2016

      Gaga looks corny and forced here. She has to many YES MEN around her signing off on her mess.

  2. Molly #Stargirl December 14, 2016

    This era came and went faster than sour milk oops I meant lemonade 😊

  3. .:: Centurion ::. December 14, 2016

    It’s like she has given up. Poor Gaga.

    • BeySting December 14, 2016

      Your fave dropped three boring generic singles last year that all flopped and had to downgrade from stadiums to arenas so why don’t you stay in your #460 lane

      • gina December 14, 2016

        but all your faves minute maid singles flopped too, and she has to buy her awards so you can sit now.

      • Molly #Stargirl December 14, 2016

        Not a million flops doing better than all night on the charts 😂😂😂

        Gag me > Washedupyonce

      • SMH December 14, 2016

        At least Rihanna’s “boring” singles became top 10 hits, unlike those dry asss fails from that lemonade mess.

      • BeySting December 14, 2016

        She didn’t rely on Samsung to purchase a platinum plaque,she got that because people were willing to go out and spend $18 instead of cheap mcsingles

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler December 14, 2016

        At least Samsung didn’t have to buy Lemonades album certifications in order for it to go platinum

      • BeySting December 14, 2016

        Lololol atleast those flop singles got recognized by the Grammy committee. Atleast those flop singles got critical acclaim.When will your slutty fave ever be nominated for four different genres in one night?

      • gina December 14, 2016

        no, your fraudulent fave just has to buy awards because she cant earn them with talent and frontload her sales because her singles always flop. stay seated.

      • Rihboy December 14, 2016

        Yeah but her and her husband do buy their own albums sooo!

    • Career Ender December 14, 2016

      drought striken african troll
      evil caterpillar!

      • 💎Yellow Diamonds💎 December 14, 2016

        B*^%h but you’re from South Africa stop!!

  4. Paulo December 14, 2016

    it’s a cute video but yeah they could’ve had more shots of her acting instead of her performing in the white room. or maybe have her rejoin the stage (a real one this time as opposed to the PI video) and coming full terms with her new laidback stage persona. I like it but I don’t love it.

  5. Max December 14, 2016

    I’m sorry but that was boring sigh

  6. SMH December 14, 2016

    ‘Hello’ was just as dull, dry and boring, if not more.

    • JOHNVIDAL December 14, 2016

      Definitely. Although it became so funny thanks to this comparison you can see in the following link:

    • JOHNVIDAL December 14, 2016

    • Molly #Stargirl December 14, 2016

      Hello was sung by an iconic singer not a tryhard gimmick fad 😊

      • SMH December 14, 2016

        Sorry, I stopped reading after ‘iconic singer’.

      • Molly #Stargirl December 14, 2016

        Adele’s not iconic sis? You seem salty boo

      • SMH December 14, 2016

        No she not. She hasn’t influenced an entire generation of singers, so no she’s not iconic. You seem ignorant. Sis.

  7. JOHNVIDAL December 14, 2016

    Hmm… when are these guys at TGJ going to finally accept this era is not about the tremendous visuals? I thought anyone could get that through their heads once they listened to the album for teh first time.

    I thought it was going to be a little bit better though. Simple but better. The song remains great so it´s ok.

    • Max December 14, 2016

      This era needs visuals with a story or something that will keep people from hitting he replay button. I was really hoping she would deliver this time

  8. gina December 14, 2016

    she’s obviously taking the simplistic approach this time around. too many artists are relying on smoke & mirrors instead of talent.

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler December 14, 2016

      Rihanna relies on smoke and mirrors does she not ?

      • gina December 14, 2016

        nope, that would be beyonce.

      • Meme December 14, 2016

        What smokes and mirrors you speak of that rihanna relies on? NO, she release her singles and simple videos the traditional way, She don’t need to play games for her music to do well.

      • BEY>RIH December 14, 2016

        Lmaooo, your faves are literally the definition of smoke and mirrors. Gags relying on meat dresses and barfing on stage early in her career wasn’t a gimmick. Cause it damn sure wasn’t art! And don’t get me started on Frihanna. I wonder where I could find a good Samsung deal… 🤔

      • BEY>RIH December 14, 2016


  9. Jo December 14, 2016

    She wore this tired ass song out!

    I’m over her and this Joanne era.

  10. OQRAM December 14, 2016

    She’s still here? Someone needs to tell Gaga it’s better to walk away before you get escorted out.

    • The Legend Called Missy Elliott December 14, 2016


  11. LOL December 14, 2016



  12. FADGA December 14, 2016

    Gaga lost it all. This is sad

    • Suicide Blonde December 14, 2016

      I once had that same avi, love my Kurt.

  13. Dark Horse December 14, 2016

    Her career is over. You failed now we are all laughing. Jokes on you!

  14. Career Ender December 14, 2016

    Million resons live is better than rihana ans selena gomez put together
    Lets not!

    • gina December 14, 2016

      all nite too. hows it doing on the charts?

    • Molly #Stargirl December 14, 2016

      Rihanna and Selena score hit after hit… Unlike that uneducated ghetto thieving sloppy thot you stan for.

      • Career Ender December 14, 2016

        Shut the fug up ho. Name one selena #1 hit

      • Molly #Stargirl December 14, 2016

        Ho? Never been that your fav owns that title.

      • Shakira Stan December 14, 2016

        Girl tell Selena that black lives matter
        Tell her that Jessica Bieber’s mother loves everyone but hates her
        Also tell her that there is only one recognized artiste from Colombia and it ain’t her.

      • BEY>RIH December 14, 2016

        @Mollythemattress Bey has never been a hœ chile. She has a ring on her finger and a child to her name unlike some of these bucklekneed thots in the industry…

  15. HailLegendBeysus December 14, 2016

    Good for her. This song is boring to me. She needs to move on to the next single already.
    LMAO! At the desperate hater’s trying to use Gagz to drag Bey! The downgrade is REAL! 😂

    • Molly #Stargirl December 14, 2016

      The song is boring but its out charting hold up , daddy lessons, and all night 😂😂😂😂😂😂 #gagging #youStillScaredHoe ?

      • Shakira stan December 14, 2016

        Let’s be realistic everyone is out charting Beyonce, don’t act like it takes much to do that.

  16. Career Ender December 14, 2016

    Gagas ability and talent are not limited by Hot100
    That’s for basics like Rihanna and Selena

    • gina December 14, 2016

      nice excuse when your fave can’t chart on the hot 100.

      • Career Ender December 14, 2016

        Yet she broke a hot100 record this year?

      • Mark111 /.\ December 14, 2016

        Having your songs chart for ONE week and falling right off the next isn’t a record, it’s hype that died really fast. At least it’s not a record that anyone wants. Call me when she get a song that charts for over 40 weeks. #9YearsAgo

      • BEY>RIH December 14, 2016

        Hype is not having the best-selling female album of the year. Its clear she doesn’t care about singles seeing how she ignores Spotify, Apple music, and youtube for six months.

  17. Fancy BISH December 14, 2016

    I feel like visuals are more important now more than ever…anyone can see an artist looking regular and boring, thanks to the INTERNETZ lol…Beyonce, Rihanna and The Weeknd are WINNING with the kind of imagery Gaga used to do in her sleep…it doesn’t have to be as dark as she used to do it, but boring is boring…this was a missed opportunity FOR REAL.

  18. Career Ender December 14, 2016

    Moly outchea flowing like a sewege yet its fave doesn’t have a #1 hit

  19. Black power December 14, 2016

    Sigh…. this visual didn’t help AT ALL…. she needs to move on-to the next singles… Ay-yo, dancing in circles, or John Wayne…

  20. HailLegendBeysus December 14, 2016

    Can the Transvestite kill itself already? Im tired of it stalking my comments. I mean how has it found the strength too carry on when on one love’s it? Must be the crackrock that keeps that skeletor alive lmao!

  21. Shakira stan December 14, 2016

    She has certainly lost it.
    What happened to the 2008/2009 gaga.. The woman that took the world by storm, this wailing loony without identity ain’t it.

  22. ty December 14, 2016

    Can anyone from either stan bases of Rihanna and Beyonce come up with different shade and stop ruining articles with the stale “draggings” y’all give each other. You guys fight on every bloody article just repeating the same old crap over and over again. We all love a good drag but jesus can you guys at-least come up with different material.

  23. Shakira stan December 14, 2016

    I see the hives defending gaga, as well they should… Telephone was Beyonce’s last hit and it’s been almost a decade now.
    When Micheal and Whitney were around Beyonce’s age they were topping charts and selling platinum albums but the delusional hives dare compare this legend with a woman who started flopping in her mid twenties

    • 💎Yellow Diamonds💎 December 14, 2016


    • BEY>RIH December 14, 2016

      Is Beyoncé’s album not platinum?

  24. No favs, just here for the music December 14, 2016

    Ugh. Gotta admit I really don’t like this song and the video did nothing for me.

  25. Mark111 /.\ December 14, 2016

    I like the song, I will never watch this video agian. I gave the album another listen, not bad, it just don’t cater to her fans. Like the J Cole album, these are house cleaning, studying, long drives type albums. No one is going to play these at a party.

    • BEY>RIH December 14, 2016

      People actually bought Cole’s albun tho.

  26. Suicide Blonde December 14, 2016

    I expected something like this so I’m not surprised.

  27. Theman December 14, 2016

    LG’s album is selling well. The video should have had more to it. It’s nice, but it’s almost too simplistic. This song is great. Y’all keep trying to make her era be over & it isn’t. She’s still selling. If this song continues to grow it’ll continue to help her album sales..

    • Mark111 /.\ December 14, 2016

      619K WW after 3 months is a flop.

      • BEY>RIH December 14, 2016

        Even Anti sold more in that amount of time… Oh wait.

      • Paulo December 15, 2016

        album came out October 21. Today is December 15. 6 days left for two months, actually, so……. yeah

    • JOHNVIDAL December 15, 2016

      Why did these haters down vote Theman´s comment when it was nothing but truths?

  28. 💎Yellow Diamonds💎 December 14, 2016

    *sings in the tune of a million reason*
    Girl why is this era soooo f***in slow, you’re giving me a millions reason to tell you NO!

  29. chris December 14, 2016

    this is all you guys fault..

    if artpop was poppin’ she wouldn’t be like this crazy…

    now she goes wrong direction.

  30. Mase December 15, 2016

    I agree with most of you. She could’ve done MORE in the video I get it. Regardless of it all, I like the video for this song. The black and white scenes with the crying felt so emotional. The pink outfit with the white background is a no… maybe some grass or landscape with a horse. The box should’ve had her engagement ring. THAT would’ve had people talking.

  31. Mase December 15, 2016

    I’m not gonna say she lost it because she hasn’t. Look how she transitioned to John Wayne at the Victoria Secret show and gave us a dark look like Fame Monster. She COULD go crazy Gaga again any second. But it feels like her approach this era is simple.

  32. Mase December 15, 2016

    A lot of people complained about her being too eccentric and over the top during ARTPOP. Now she’s being basic and simple and it’s also a problem? You guys will never be satisfied. However , if she wants to be on top she needs to release BOPS and crazy videos again. She still holds a great videography that’s ABOVE most of your faves.

  33. Mase December 15, 2016

    The only hope of her to be #1 on Hot100 is Dancin In Circles if she executes a Bad Romance kind of video and right promotion

  34. Mase December 15, 2016

    As far as Million Reasons, the general public isn’t over it. They have it in the top 10 of iTunes and now with a video who knows it’s longevity? Stans could only do so much for an artist success. The bigger mass are the ones who determine. So all of you hating trolls will shut your mouths when Gaga wins again. And with the super bowl exposure those sales will go crazy! She could drop tour dates right after the super bowl
