WATCH: Lady Gaga Premieres 'Edge of Glory' (VIDEO)
When it comes to Gaga, fans know to expect the unexpected. However, there were some clues as to what the video would feature when a casting notice leaked, calling for an Enrique Iglesias-type who "must be willing to kiss" the singer.
The video casting also called for "Couture Doctors" to wear smocks and black gloves, a "male or female on-air reporter" and a group of M16-toting military guys. In Gaga's world this all makes perfect sense.
How does the actual video measure up?
There's no shortage of body-baring outfits, wild, hair-flipping dance moves, gothic cityscapes and plenty of smoke machines in effect. We gotta say -- Gaga has never looked better!
However, for all the wild characters the supposed casting call asked for...the video is little more than the singer working it out on the streets. Rather simple, but also totally Gaga -- unexpected. The video does feature a cameo by legendary saxophonist Clarence Clemons -- who recently suffered a stroke. She sent him a special message in a get well video that included a number of her fans sending their well wishes.
