Lady Gaga gets naked, eats Cheerios, and gets in a car crash during her 13 minute “Marry the Night” video, and even though that sounds like a great time, Gaga says that the video was inspired by the worst day of her life.
So what was the worst day in Lady Gaga’s life? The day that she saw her dreams slipping away from her. When she was dropped from Island Def Jam.
So is the video just her sitting in an office as some record exec tells her that she’s fired? Hardly. This is Lady Gaga’s artistic interpretation of the events. Gaga says at the beginning of the “Marry the Night” video:
“When I look back on my life. It’s not that I don’t want to remember things exactly the way they happened. It’s just that I prefer to remember them in an artistic way. And truthfully, the lie of it all is much more honest because I invented it.”
Here’s an interview that Lady Gaga did with E! about the inspiration for her new video.
The 13-minute video only contains about four minutes of music. The first 9-minutes show a pale faced Gaga lying in a hospital bed, practicing ballet, throwing a naked tantrum, and hanging upside down out of a car window. The music starts at about the 9:00 mark.
What do you think about Lady Gaga’s new video? Do you think Lady Gaga is truly a “struggling artist?”
