Lady Gaga 14-Minute ‘Marry The Night’ Music Video Review

Lady Gaga Marry The Night Video – Lady Gaga’s Clocking 14-minute “Marry the Night” music video review, directed by the Mother Monster herself, is a short film. However, she breaks no new ground by doing this, it’s been done before by Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and numerous other artists.

The video opens as she if being rolled through a clinic. As her monologue wraps up, a pale, bruised singer is in bed, being cared for by the same nurse who delivered her, still recovering from an unknown procedure. With tears streaming down her face, she tells the nurse, “I’m gonna be a star. You know why? Because I have nothing left to lose.”

Next, the viewer is taken to the stage, where a glamorous ballerina Gaga is performing. Then, she’s back at her apartment, being tucked into bed by a long-haired man. Gaga lies topless in her apartment and gets a call from her director, arguing, “But, I’m an artist. What do you mean give up?”

She begins destroying her apartment manically. Next, she’s dying her hair and singing the opening lines of “Marry the Night” acoustically.

“You may say I lost everything,” Gaga says in a voice-over, as she’s seen decked out in a bedazzled denim outfit and heels, joking, “But I still had my BeDazzler and I had a lot of patches, shiny ones from M&J Trimming, so I wreaked havoc on some old denim. And I did what any girl would do — I did it all over again.”

Now she’s at a dance studio, doing her best “Fame” routine, rolling around and stretching, clearly reinventing herself from the ballerina she once was to a pop backup dancer.

As she dances in the studio and on the street, the video also cuts to Gaga naked in a bathtub at her apartment. The video focuses the most on Gaga’s dancing, with a majority of the actual music-video portion featuring several big dance numbers. As she dances on the street, the moments leading up to her breakdown are played out: She’s fighting, she’s setting cars on fire, she’s naked, she’s dancing.

“Marry the Night” is the latest single from Gaga’s Grammy-nominated Born This Way album. It was filmed in New York City in October and marks the first time Gaga has directed a video solo. While the clip is an homage to her pre-fame roots, the song is also a tribute to the Big Apple.
