Lady Gaga, ‘Born This Way’ – Video Premiere

Lady Gaga‘s ‘Born This Way’ video made its debut this morning, and as expected, it is full of the unexpected.

The seven-minute mini-movie tells the tale of how Lady G came to be … Sort of. In a two-minute intro, we learn that Gaga is born an “infinite birth” in this futuristic story, which takes place far, far away. Though her birth represents “a race that bears no prejudice, no judgment, but boundless freedom,” evil is born simultaneously.

“This is the manifesto of Mother Monster,” Gaga says, as the video opens to her sitting on a throne. She introduces the government-owned alien space territory, where “a birth of magnificent and magical proportions took place.”

Naturally, Gaga is pushed out of the egg she popped out of at the Grammys — though this time things are a bit slimier. Some of the more gruesome scenes are shot with a kaleidoscope effect, though Gaga seems to have no qualms about the ‘Alien’ inspired gore, as there is a lot of focus on the birth.

As the song begins, the ‘Paparazzi’ star dances around in her underwear with dozens of bodies following her lead (thanks to the creative hand of choreographer Laurieann Gibson), giving this one an extra sexual charge. In line with the birth of evil, Gaga even appears as a zombie in this dark video — dressed in skeleton painted attire alongside Thierry Mugler’s zombie model Rick Genest.

‘Born This Way,’ directed by the adventurous fashion photographer Nick Knight, shows Gaga as the queen of everything.
