Lady Gaga’s “Marry the Night” Marathon Music Video
This just in: Lady Gaga’s “Marry the Night” video is ready for your viewing pleasure!
I’m a fan of Lady Gaga just as much as the next guy. I guess that means that my level of fan-dom depends on who I’m standing next to. Which is exactly how I feel about her latest video. I’m torn. It’s dramatic, cinematic, and all those other -matics. But don’t try and sneak a peek at work, unless your boss won’t mind you taking up a quarter-hour of usual productive time. (Good thing I get to watch because it’s part of my job!)
She’s a huge part of pop culture, and I get that. What I don’t get what the smashing of Cheerios on the face symbolizes. Why does she include her prediction about mint green being a hot Spring color? Is this her way of getting her foot in the door for future acting gigs?
It’s interesting, sure. But I’m not sure I agree with a 14 minute music video. Maybe because I just don’t get it. But are you really supposed to “get” Lady Gaga?
