The latest Lady Gaga video to be unleashed on the unsuspecting public – Marry the Night - is out now. The song itself is a sort of ‘80’s I think We’re Alone Now power ballad, but instead of a sort of three minute clip to jolly along with, the vid takes the form of an extended mini movie, a whole 14 minutes in length! Packed with a lot of what our Mum would describe as ‘ham acting’ from the be-talonned one; in a hospital bed, lecherously eyeing up the nurses, or writhing in her bathtub applying blue hair dye to her mane or having some sort of psychotic breakdown simultaneously smashing up mirrors and gorging on Cheerios straight from the box. At one point she’s in an attic in Paris, answering the phone from her mattress on the floor and then the next she’s in a car park, covered in engine grease. All in a day’s work for the Lady.
Her outfits are less outre than in the past, and we see a lot of boobage. We particularly liked the Versace rhinestone-studded denim look though. Then, eventually, the song kicks in and she’s doing a Fame-style dance class with a load of other dancers. We like it. We don’t understand the narrative thread, but we did find it entertaining. Well done Gaga. Again.
