In an interview with E! News, Gaga reveals the video is autobiographical. Gaga explained that the video is an interpretation of the day she was dropped from her first label, Island Def Jam — and thought she’d never be a superstar.
“It was one of the worst days of my life and it happened quite quickly, but in my mind, when I think back on that period of my life, it all happened very slow… It is my personal way of seeing things. If you give up after something like that, you were never destined to be an entertainer.”
While filming, the signer admits her nude scenes were the most real.
“Well, I was naked in real life when it happened,” she said, referring to the moment she found out she’d been dropped. “That’s probably the most honest moment in that video of everything I’ve ever done. My directorial decision was for them to just f–king roll the cameras, because I couldn’t go in and out of the moment.”
