It’s Lady Gaga’s Dali-esque new music video for 911, in which she wakes up in the desert, is taken to an adobe house, meets a cast of surreally clad characters who fly about and bang their heads on pillows (don’t try to understand) before they strap her to a board and stab her. Un Chien Andelou makes more sense.
And we haven’t even gotten to the twist-y Usual Suspects ending…
Writes Gaga on Instagram: “This short film is very personal to me, my experience with mental health and the way reality and dreams can interconnect to form heroes within us and all around us.”
“I’d like to thank my director/filmmaker Tarsem for sharing a 25 year old idea he had with me because my life story spoke so much to him,” Gaga added. “I’d like to thank Haus of Gaga for being strong for me when I wasn’t, and the crew for making this short film safely during this pandemic without anyone getting sick. It’s been years since I felt so alive in my creativity to make together what we did with ‘911’. Thank you @Bloodpop for taking a leap of faith with me to produce a record that hides in nothing but the truth. Finally, thank you little monsters. I’m awake now, I can see you, I can feel you, thank you for believing in me when I was very afraid. Something that was once my real life everyday is now a film, a true story that is now the past and not the present. It’s the poetry of pain.”
911 is the third official single off Gaga’s latest album Chromatica
