Lady Gaga Tweets Photo of Her Battered, High-Heeled Feet From ‘You & I’ Video
Lady Gaga tweeted another still photo that is likely from the 'You & I' video, which is set to debut on MTV on Thurs, Aug. 18 at 7:50PM, according to GagaDaily. The photo is of the Mother Monster's battered, bruised, bloodied feet, which are encased in sky-high, strappy stripper heels. The bruises are courtesy of makeup, but nonetheless, they look real. And painful.
The reason for the banged up feet? It's all part of the narrative and motif of the video, where Gaga walks in neck-breaking heels from New York City to Nebraska to reclaim her man. Not Reebok sneakers, not cushioned trainers, not supportive Rockports. Not even a pair of work boots. This is Gaga's world: She wears heels no matter what her journey and will make her feet suffer when her mission is singular and revolves around getting what she wants.
"The premise of the video is that I’ve walked all the way from New York City to Nebraska to get [my boyfriend] back. I’m walking with no luggage, no nothin'. It's just me, and my ankles are kind of bleeding a little bit and there's grass stuck in my shoes," Gaga told a local radio station when she was in town filming the clip.
This is the second still that the Mother Monster tweeted from the video. Last week, she tweeted a photo of of herself. She is wearing a white dress, seated in front of a large, looming piano.
Both images are striking and have amped up excitement for the 'You & I' video premiere later this week. Gaga, who is quite the open book when it comes to her tweets, has been teasing photos and details about the video and the single, making anticipation run wild.
