Born This Way by Lady Gaga, Music Video Review

As expected, the music video for Lady Gaga’s song Born This Way has stuck up controversy.  The video goes on for seven minutes and twenty seconds, and contains many strange images.  There are parts that you’ll really have to think about what you’re seeing. You know what’s in front of you, but what are you seeing?  However, this does give rise to a new game that I like to call Spot The Ovaries, which are scattered around the video.

The music video tells the story of the creation of a race.  First good is born and then evil, to protect it.  The music for the opening few minutes is reminiscent of old movies.  The video may not be suitable for younger viewers and mature audiences will either love it or hate it.  Personally, I like it, but a lot of people won’t and there’s no shame in either.  We can all join hands and play Spot The Ovaries.

A second video, for an acoustic version of the song, will be released sometime in the near future.  For now we’ll just have to enjoy, or be freaked out by, this version.  Check it out below and vote and leave a comment about what you think of it.

    Can’t stand this woman. Pretty much every “scandal” involving her is planned and co-ordinated by her management team and label.

    Real musical controversy is German band Rammstein burning members of the audience with a flamethrower at a concert ot Marliyn Manson sexually assaulting a male bouncer at a gig. Random, insane moments.

    Everything gaga does is planned in a meeting with businessmen and public relation teams and marketing managers, weeks if not months before these “scandals” hit the press.

    She is as fake as her auto-tuned vocals!

    • That’s a lot of anger for one comment. She doesn’t always use auto tune, mostly just when she wants to create an effect rather than to fix her pitch. She writes her own music, which in my eyes puts you 10 points above all those who don’t. She isn’t claiming to be scandelous, she likes being creative and weird to encourage people to do the same, it’s the media that interpret it into a scandel.
