Watch! Lady Gaga: Born This Way

This is the first video (a second video will be released at a later date via iTunes)for Lady Gaga's single Born This Way, directed by famed fashion photographer Nick Knight, Laurieann Gibson and Lady Gaga. It tells the sci-fi story of the manifesto of Mother Monster who exists in a world where there is no prejudice. Ultimately, because the multi-verse isn't perfect, she is divided in two and torn between good and evil.

In this video, I definitely see inspirations taken from the Aliens movie franchise, the art of H.R. Giger, the visuals surrounding Madonna's Reinvention tour, Madonna's Express Yourself video, and Michael Jackson. The beauty about Lady Gaga is her ability to look at key pop culture landmarks, take inspiration from them and make them her own by giving them a Gaga spin. I can't help myself from loving the positive message and stunning visuals found in this video clip. Gaga never disappoints and I have no doubt that this video will only further propel the success of this pop anthem!
