Lady Gaga Marry the Night Vid (WATCH!)
Lady Gaga has unveiled her brand new Marry the Night video (and her directorial video debut). At nearly fourteen minutes long, dare we say it’s…indulgent? MTV News reports that the video is a metaphor for her feelings after her first record label, Island Def Jam, dropped her.
“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,” Gaga said. “It is my personal way of seeing things. I am the artist of my own life. I choose to tell you what happened. If you give up after something like that, you were never destined to be an entertainer.” (She didn’t give up, and is currently at Interscope records.)
“I love the obstacles,” she said. “To marry your obstacles means I, the artist, wholeheartedly accept everything you throw at me. I am destined to struggle, I am destined to write music about the struggle and I accept it willingly.”
So – why is she naked? Apparently, Gaga was actually naked when she found out the bad news from the record company. “That’s probably the most honest moment in that video of everything I’ve ever done,” she said. “My directorial decision was for them to just f—ing roll the cameras, because I couldn’t go in and out of the moment. I wonder if I will actually release that scene in its entirety — it’s about 30 minutes long.”
Hmm…I think we’ll pass. But here’s the “Marry the Night” video for your viewing pleasure:
