Video: Lady Gaga – ‘Born This Way’

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga gives birth to the striking video for “Born This Way,” the record-breaking single from her album of the same name, due May 23. The pop provocateur, who co-directed the clip with photographer Nick Knight and the Haus of Gaga, narrates a story of good versus evil before the music kicks in and she hits choreographer Laurieann Gibson’s cues, modeling a handful of outrageous looks including skeleton chic and twisted fairy godmother.

“It looks completely different than everything I’ve ever done,” Gaga told Billboard. “It is the birth of the new race. Really deep stuff.”

Unleash Mother Monster’s latest creation below and find out if she triumphs over evil.

How does “Born This Way” stack up to Gaga’s other videos? Let us know.

    I actually like the video. its mysterious and different. Gaga is not anti christ, she was actually brought up in a religious home and believes in god! only because she’s bisexual and rooting for acceptance of the gay’s does not mean she does not believe in GOD!

    [Reply]

    gabe Reply:

    @Mimi, keyword WAS. just because you were brought up in a religious home doesnt mean you cant believe in the devil later. just look at her videos how could anyone who believes in jesus be doing that kind of stuff. its pretty sick that shes the role model to future women.

    RUNAWAY Reply:

    @gabe, Considereing all the religious wars, witch hunts with hanging innocent people, and all the religious southerners who owned slaves. I’m pretty sure people who believe in Jesus have done alot worse.
    The artists who get on stage and thank god the most, you guys call devil worshippers, just because they’re different. Kanye West wears a huge Jesus chain and you say he is too.
    Trying to influence people to dislike artists, who are doing good, sounds like something the Devil would do. Making weak minded people put out slander to get other weak minded people to feel the same way, is what demons do. The Devil doesn’t put out weak ass subliminal messages in music videos. Especially if nobody can even tell they are there, what would be the point. Take a psychology class and learn what subliminal messaging is because you guys obviously don’t.

    [Reply]

    gabe Reply:

    @RUNAWAY, ya man im taking classes at ucla majoring in sociology and psychology i think i know exactly what im talking about when it comes to subliminal messaging and how societies work. and yes all those slave owners and sinners who believed in jesus arent believers either if they did all that too. also kanye west wearing a jesus chain doesnt mean shit. do you think jesus wants his facee full of diamonds just to show of wealth NO.thats a huge contradiction. and how does spreading the word to the sheep of the world that are following devil and trying to show them the way sound like something the devil would do??? LOOK AT LADY GAGA SHE EVEN PUT SOME DAMN HORNS ON HER HEAD. WHAT DOES SHE HAVE TO D TO BELIEVE THAT SHES EVIL, WANT HER TO KILL SOMEONE IN THE NAME OF SATAN??? oy yeah but i bet everybody would think thats creative and that its just art. cmon people wake up.

    [Reply]

    echo Reply:

    @gabe, you should study theology or learn more about your religion, so you sound more informed when expressing your opinions. What I never get is why people who claim to be religious become so irritated and defensive with stupid things. You either have faith, and if you don’t then you’re obviously not certain of what you believe. AND YOU LOOK LIKE A MESS

    before you get blinded by so called “artistic talent” the message that is being relayed here is not cool or fun or clean or holy. Not to say that other secular kinds of music or artists are but there is just certain things you can’t get down with no matter how “artistic” it seems. Something about her just ain’t right…

    I find that video really ugly, in a beautiful way… it’s strange, but there’s something about it. The first narrative part was good, but I still think she could’ve done the actual song part better, it feels a bit dull, but the imagery is nice. And even though when I heard the track I instantly thought Express Yourself and TLC’s Waterfalls, the video is pure Gaga. I give it a 7/10.

    …and people need to stop being such hypocrits. All these pop artists that just show off their asses and pecs and biceps and these girls looking like prostitutes – yes they’re singing about love – all they’re showing is sex. You watch the movies you see Saw, Human Centipede and numerous violent films and people call that art. Lady Gaga – and I am not necessarily a fan – makes all these modern things of our modern times, fun. Call it whatever you want, at the end of the day you’re talking about her, her music, her visuals so…

    Who are these terrified, hysterical people from the Middle Ages babbling about the anti-Christ and the devil? This video is amazing — a visually stunning work of art with a message about freedom, love, acceptance and empowerment from a 21st-Century superstar. It’s cool if you don’t like her, but please drop the mindless superstition and really dumb religious extremist rhetoric. It’s really lazy and ignorant.

  62. RUNAWAY

    Illuminati literally means “the enlightened ones” and they are a group of Free Masons. The only time they use Lucifer is when they are talking about it’s actuall meaning “The bringer of light” not the fucking Devil. In their case the light is knowledge. The Lucifer they mention is represented in the Statue of Liberty, and they are the ones who built it. Does the Statue of Liberty look like the Devil to you? You guys are so uneducated that it hurts. Most of the founding fathers were illuminati, and alot of them where known to be atheist, so they didn’t even believe in the fucking Devil. #stepyourcookiesup

    i have an idea, why dont all music videos look the same, with the same artists in them. because then music videos wouldnt even be worth watching anymore. Gaga is different, shes not “the devil” or w.e people are coming out with lol. shes an artist & she is well within her rights to be different, unique & record whatever she wants. you think Jesus was accepted when he started shouting out about God coming to see him? but he believed in something so he never gave up. Gaga believes in all the right things, Freedom, no prejudice, no war etc. so you should be thankful there is even a worldwide artist who is brave enough to express this in everything she does.

    Calm down guys! Personally i loved it and since when did music videos have to mean anything? i love how unique and different she is and how easily she can express herself and her views. Most of the other artists around at the moment, no offense i like them to but everything is sounding the same! so this beautiful woman is just trying to be different in her own way. But everyone is entitled to there own opninon and if u dont like her then just say it, you dont need to write a complete story about it or make it hateful towards her or her fans, i mean if eveyone in the world were the same, well it would be a pretty boring world! Just remember this the next time u see her on telly or hear her singing, shes just being herself, not fake! <3 <3 love u gaga! x.x.x

    [Reply]

  86. Cheri

    I love this video and the song. I mean if you think about it it’s actually talking about being yourself and who you are instead of trying to be perfect. Everyone has imperfections and she wants everybody to live life to it’s fullest. The point is to not try to be someone else love you the way you are none of us need make up or surgery to like ourselves. Also this video isn’t evil its a positive message to all the people who don’t like who they are. So before you jump to conclusions because it’s Lady GaGa listen to the words.
