Video: Lady Gaga – ‘The Edge of Glory’

Lady Gaga

There’s no hatching from eggs or controversial biblical themes in the video for Lady Gaga’s latest single “The Edge of Glory.” Instead, the only surprise is the lack of surprises. The pop megastar takes a simpler approach with her latest work, wearing the same studded Versace outfit and black-and-white wig throughout the entire clip as she cavorts outside a brick building resembling her New York apartment.

Clarence Clemons of the E Street Band, who recently suffered a stroke, plays the saxophone on a stoop as Gaga climbs the fire escape and dances on the sidewalk while pink lights illuminate the night sky.

Choreographer Laurieann Gibson previously told Rap-Up TV that something “very fishy” would happen in the video, but we didn’t see anything of the sort. Was the original concept scrapped in favor of something less edgy?

    A little boring but very watchable. I loved the JAZZ aspects of the production.

    Very decent.

  12. Coleworld

    I love the simplicity of the video and her just dancing… but like someone else said its better suited for Marry the Night. Cool video tho!

    [Reply]

  13. Jay

    I have to say that despite the fact that I really dislike the song & Gaga has a horrible body shape, she’s a really stiff dancer & she tries too hard, I really like this video. The sooner she realizes more is less the better. She also fails @ trying to be sexy & her choreographer needs to teach her how to dance properly.

    What was the point of this video? If this video gets millions upon millions of views I am going to be sick due to the fact that this video had no significance (aside from her kissing the ground). So overrated, but the song is okay.

    Yea the video doesnt take you anywhere. I expected so much more, esp with this song being one of the bigger cuts on the album. Oh well maybe she’ll release an alternate version if not there’s always ‘Hair’ to look forward to.

    @LADY GAGA, Why do people keep saying it flopped? It was and still is on the charts. Plus what does a video have to do with the songs status. It’s either a good video or not. Why are people bringing up Beyonce anyway? Katy Perry is the one who keeps taking the top of the pop charts and just released an amazing video.

    Hmm… I like the video, I just don’t love it. It is just kind of forgettable. It’s not that I don’t like it… I do. I am a fan of hers, but this was just kind of blah. It’s just her running around a building. That’s all. There is no point. It doesn’t really releate to the song? I was expecting something more along the lines of her recent American Idol performance. Musically, I love her. Artistically, though, I haven’t really liked her image that much lately.

    BORING VIDEO! Waste of time and money!

    Probably the best song off her new album and the video doesn’t give it justice. Lack of creativity, substance and depth.

    I guess people excepted so much more than this…

    this song should have had the 18 million dollar video budget, Not “Judas” in my opinion. No offence but it wasn’t really exiting watching her on a stair case or whatever just happend.

    I think Laurie Ann’s choreography is a little too much for Gaga in this vid. It looks too rehearsed and she doesn’t seem to be feeling it.

    Like i said before seems it was true,that she blow 7 milli on the Judas video,that,s the reason this video is so low budget.

    okayyy so first lady gaga is too over the top? and now she’s not “over the top” enough?! she’ll never win with you judgmental assholes. and btw, gaga and beyonce are two different artists. STOP COMPARING ARTISTS AND APPRECIATE MUSIC YOU LATE FAGS. gaga selling her album for $.99 isn’t for ratings, it’s for the love of the music. ya’ll just mad cause beyonce didn’t think of it first.

    @natii,you dissing gays and 97% of Gagas fans are gay,you so dumb,and of curse she did sell her album for ratings,my be if she didn’t spend 7 mill on that judas video+ sell her album for 99c,she wouldn’t have to make this low budget video.

    Lol @ Beyonce stan tryna throw shade.. Girl sit down.. Beyonce releases 3 singles.. and they arent even on the top 10! Bitch Kelly Rowland is #23, so how you doing boo? While “Flop of the world” is #63? Come with facts my dear.. Beyonce is a biter, bitch jumped on GaGa, face it.. GaGa is better, it’s not always about shaking your ass to songs with NO SUBSTANCE. Only thing Beyonce has is Looks.. And Medicore vocals. #YeaISaidIt… now who gone check me boo?

    [Reply]

  45. Ruthy

    First off, R.I.P. Clarence Clemons.

    Secondly, even though it isn’t GaGa’s standards for a music video, it’s more suited for “Marry The Night” with some choreography in a real street heading towards the nightclub.

    Thirdly, GaGa shouldn’t fired Joseph Kahn, she should fired Laurieann for her lame choreography and she lied about the music video.
