Lady Gaga Debuts Schizophrenic ‘Marry the Night’ Mini-Movie (VIDEO)
In typical head-scratching Gaga style, the video begins with a long interlude that champions her fashion-forward approach to, well, everything. She notes that the nurses strolling her down the hallway are wearing “next season Calvin Klein” and that she’s wearing custom designer shoes — in what appears to be a mental hospital.
Is this her Girl, Interrupted moment? As ever, she treats viewers to an dizzying onslaught of contrived images that are meant to provoke a reaction from the audience. With gigantic hats, cars on fire, and plenty of splashing naked in a bathtub wearing glittery heels, this is what the Lady does best.
Jason Williams, a featured dancer in the video — who first appeared alongside Gaga on So You Think You Can Dance — tells Celebuzz this video moves a little differently due to a new artistic direction after she parted ways with long time choreographer/director Laurie Ann Gibson.
“Every great entertainer grows from each album and sometimes a conflict in creative direction arises or even causes controversy,” he says of the split. “Laurie Ann Gibson and Lady Gaga are both extremely strong-willed, passionate and creative women and sometimes that can cause a separation … It was a pleasure working with them both and I was able to grow as an dancer from their genius advice.”
He adds that Gaga’s approach has always been to lose herself in her performance and that she’s exactly the same way years later by being completely absorbed in herself artistically.
