Lady Gaga Lyrics Portrays Bizarre Imagery, Mental Breakdowns

Lady Gaga Lyrics – In the 14-minute-long video, Gaga plays a ballet dancer who suffers a mental breakdown after being told by her director that she should quit. She then restructures her life and goals to rise to the top.

Not very far off from her previous videos, featuring somewhat bizarre imagery and choreographed dance routines, the singer told E! News that the video was inspired by the devastation she experienced the day she was dropped from her first record label, Island Def Jam.

“It was one of the worst days of my life and it happened quite quickly,” she told E! News’ Jason Kennedy in an interview. “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. 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.”

In addition, Gaga said the song is about “marrying your obstacles in order to achieve your dreams,” or embracing your faults and mistakes in order to better yourself.

“In order to become great at writing music or at fishing or at being a mechanic, you have to acknowledge what is wrong with your work, or what’s dishonest about it,” she explained. “I love the obstacle, that’s what I’m trying to say to you. To marry your obstacles means to say, ‘I, the artist, wholeheartedly accept all and everything that you choose to throw at me. I am destined to struggle, I am destined to write music about the struggle, and I accept it willingly.'”
