Lady Gaga has released the new music video for her hit single “Bad Romance.” The video takes us on the epic journey of a woman forced to show the true nature of the tough female spirit when the world is against her. Her character is kidnapped by super models and then abused before being sold away to the Russian mafia.
Lady Gaga herself comments that the video personifies the natures of tough chicks, commenting that the use of razor blade sunglasses personifies this saying:
I wanted to design a pair for some of the toughest chicks and some of my girlfriends — don’t do this at home! — they used to keep razor blades in the side of their mouths. That tough female spirit is something that I want to project. It’s meant to be, ‘This is my shield, this is my weapon, this is my inner sense of fame, this is my monster.’
Lady Gaga certainly is making a name for herself with her edgy outfits and great dance music, and she’s able to pull together a fierce artistic interpretation without sacrificing the message she wants to send.

And in case the music video just isn’t enough Gaga for you, we’ve got additional behind the scenes footage of the her orchestrating every last detail. Not only is she a fantastic musician, but a brilliant artistic mastermind who’s worked extremely hard to get where she is.

As music is her life pursuit, Gaga’s also found the time to be the face of Heartbeats, which she designed to give her fans and music lovers in general the best sound experience possible.
For $119 they better make “Bad Romance” sound like she’s performing live. With the current shape of the economy, you’d think they’d offer something a little more affordable, but I get the feeling Gaga refuses to skimp when it comes to the perfect sound.
In her own unique way, Lady Gaga is making some interesting decisions regarding her up & coming “Monster Ball” world tour. In a unique collaboration with pioneering image-maker Nick Knight and fashion filmmaker Ruth Hogben, Lady Gaga has invited her fans to design and submit their own distinct video image to be included on her tour, which has been posted on Lady Gaga: Submit:
The inspiration is sharp, simple and brutal: the Apocalypse, symbolic of both destruction and rebirth. Lady Gaga, Nick Knight and Ruth Hobgen will select video imagery from the submissions, and the videos will then be spliced together and reinvented as exclusive imagery, played alongside Lady Gaga’s spectacular live performances across the globe.
In line with new contributions, video pieces will be constantly re-edited and engineered as new submissions are received throughout the tour’s 44-date marathon run, in a constant creative renewal.
Gaga’s got a lot of things on her plate right now, but she appears to be balancing it all very nicely. Her life’s work seems to be shaping up exactly how she planned, but I bet hat’s exactly what she wants us to think.
