The video is a one outfit, one concept, one location type-deal: just Gaga and famed E. Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons (who suffered a stroke just this past weekend) in front of an apartment building on a deserted New York street. Mother Monster took a break from the crazy theatrics and shape-shifting in this surprisingly simple video, in which she dances the night away completely solo. Glorious!
The Haus of Gaga and Joseph Khan-directed video features "fashion from the last collection of the legendary Gianni Versace," says the award-winning fashion icon. Nicola Formichetti, who hand-sewed the singer's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-honored meat dress, was the stylist for the shoot.
No sign of any Latino bad boys or couture doctors as indicated in the alleged casting notice for the video shoot. Also, "hints" about a "fishy" concept for the video made by Gaga's 'Judas' video creative and co-director Laurieann Gibson are lost on us now -- unless she was referring to Gaga's recent live Le Grand Journal performance of the hit costumed as a mermaid.
