Lady Gaga has been working hard through this pandemic, she recently preformed at the MTV VMAS with Ariana Grande which was a pretty extensive performance with a ton of outfit changes. Gaga has also been working on some visuals for her newest songs off the album Chromatica.
The new video is for the song called 911 which starts off with Gaga in the middle of a sand dune with a broken bicycle and ends with her actually dying on the ground after a car accident. It is said to be based on a 1969 film called The Colour of Pomegranates which has been called one of the the greatest films ever made.
Here is what Gaga had to say about the new video:
“This short film is very personal to me, my experience with mental health and the way reality and dreams can interconnect to form heroes within us and all around us. I’d like to thank my director/filmmaker Tarsem for sharing a 25 year old idea he had with me because my life story spoke so much to him. I’d like to thank Haus of Gaga for being strong for me when I wasn’t, and the crew for making this short film safely during this pandemic without anyone getting sick. It’s been years since I felt so alive in my creativity to make together what we did with “911”. Thank you @Bloodpop for taking a leap of faith with me to produce a record that hides in nothing but the truth. Finally, thank you little monsters. I’m awake now, I can see you, I can feel you, thank you for believing in me when I was very afraid. Something that was once my real life everyday is now a film, a true story that is now the past and not the present. It’s the poetry of pain.”
