Lady Gaga - Born This Way Video Recap and Pictures

I had to watch it before I commented but I wanted to get the video out there so I posted it just prior to this post- I will re-add it at the end of my recap/review.

It's weird, kooky, disturbing- and 7 something minutes long.   2:33 in and I am still hearing her narrate about Mother Monster giving birth and watching slimy Gaga heads coming from her womb (anyone else have a 'Will the Real Slim Shady Please Stand Up deja vu moment there?).   Then with the birth of evil and her 'splitting in two'.   DUDE.   She is literally pulling spears from her hoo-ha.   And the 'Zombie Boy' from her Thierry Mugler collaboration is there too.   THE SONG HASN'T STARTED YET but this is NOT what I was envisioning!
EVERYONE please stop making LONG MUSIC VIDEOS.

At 2:45 it finally starts.   She looks so skinny in the bikini.   And it's weird to see her barefoot, no ten inch heels.   I like the dancing, here makeup is shiny but pretty, the subdermal facial implant makeup is definitely different.   I don't like the third eyeball attached to Mother Monster's chin- it is creeping me out.

Wow- she looks oddly amazing as Zombie Boys' twin sister!   Ok- instead of trying to describe it I took pictures with my iPhone and made a video and am posting some of the stills:
This one reminds me of the Eminem factory

 She's splitting in two and giving birth to evil





I like these last few- looks like hair on fire

then lit up boots (reminds me of Michael Jackson)

Billboard already put out a review:

Lady Gaga premiered her highly-anticipated video for "Born This Way," the first single from her May 23 album of the same name, today (Feb. 28) at 11 am EST.

Clocking in at nearly seven and a half minutes, "Born This Way" is more of a high-fashion short film than a conventional music video. As the clip opens, Gaga declares, "This is the manifesto of Mother Monster."

She continues, describing the race she births as one "which bears no prejudice, no judgement, but boundless freedom." Gaga's opening narration sets the clip up as a battle between good and evil, with herself at the literal center of the fight.

The sci-fi-inspired video was directed by Gaga, alongside her longtime choreographer Laurieann Gibson and fashion photographer Nick Knight. In a nod to French fashion house Thierry Mugler, which now boasts Gaga's own stylist Nicola Formichetti as its creative director, the Mother Monster is shown with the label's newest muse, "Zombie Boy." Gaga is dressed and inked skeleton-style to match the highly-tattooed model, whom she dances and flirts with throughout the "Born This Way" video. "Zombie Boy," whose real name is Rick Genest, also appeared in a recent short film for Theirry Mugler, which featured an exclusive Gaga remix.
  
In addition to inspiration from Mugler, similarities to classic Madonnavideos, most specifically "Vogue" and "Borderline," can be found within the "Born This Way" clip. These Madonna references join a growing list of comparisons being made between the pop icon and Gaga's "Born This Way," which many claim sounds much like Madonna's "Express Yourself."
  
"Born This Way" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 two weeks ago, making it the 1,000th song to top the chart in its over 52-year history. G told Billboard.com that the milestone is "a tremendous honor," and in Billboard's "Born This Way" cover story, she dished on the entire album.

"It's quite eclectic," said Gaga. "It ranges from 'Born This Way' being very light to the rest of the album becoming quite darker. I in jest say that 'Born This Way' is the marijuana to the heroins of the album, the ultimate intense intoxication of the record. It's an analogy."

  2. Today an individual who wants to voice his opinion or share his thoughts or wants other to witness an incident occurred or spread awareness uses video recording as the medium to express it to the people.

  3. Children may appear a simple focus in the first place however just when one contemplates, one will know the trouble in it. One needs to pick a tune that will engage them however in the meantime one needs to guarantee that the melody being sung does not make any negative effect. http://punjabimp3hits.com/videos/rab-sukh-rakhe-by-deep-grewal-mp3-download/

  4. Since not all computer games are ease to purchase, and a ton of the amusements require a gaming stage with a costly label worth, you will see that being a full-vowed energetic gamer is costly.IGGGAMES
