Lady Gaga’s “Marry The Night” video officially premieres tonight on E!, but this being the Internet age and all, it’s here early! And it’s equal parts Black Swan, Girl Interrupted, All That Jazz, Fame, Stayin’ Alive and a psychotic Honey Nut Cheerios commercial. Watch all 13 minutes and 48 seconds (jeez) of the Grammy nominee‘s latest opus — which she directed herself — below. (Be forewarned, a nude Gaga appears throughout, though her parts are mostly censored. Still, even if it’s Safe For Work, it may not be safe for your sanity.)
“And…my video is now leaking like an old tampon,” tweeted Gaga upon seeing her little monsters’ reactions to her new video, hours earlier than planned. “Although I do appreciate that really sneaky monsters are flipping out :)”
Well, at least she’s got a sense of humor about her art leaking to the public! Anyway, here it is — and for you impatient monsters, skip eight minutes in for the actual song to begin playing.
Lady Gaga – “Marry The Night”
Lady Gaga spoke to Vanity Fair about her video, which she calls “autobiographical”. The bedroom scene in particular is based off of “the worst day” of her life — when she was dropped by her record label early in her career.
As for the reenactment, Gaga says, “It’s chaotic and sad. But I don’t want it to be safe. It has to be humiliating.”
