Today I will be reviewing Lady Gaga's Marry the Night music video.
The video starts off with just seeing a dirty looking Lady Gaga's head spinning round slowly. There is a lot of talking and you can't see whats going on but there were a lot of 'wise words' said. I loved when she said 'my past is an unfinished painting, and as the artist of that painting I must fill in all the ugly hole and make it beautiful again'.
Then it shows that she is being wheeled by 2 nurses in a stretcher (or gurnie) and it appears obvious that she is in a hospital. But then, she says her and the nurses are wearing next season Calvin Klein, and she tilted there hair nets to the side because it was romantic.
It is also obvious that all the nurses are blonde and pretty and it then becomes obvious that shes just had some sort of operation and she is on morphine (a very strong painkiller used in hospitals that can make people hallucinate). She also says that she is going to be a star, because she had nothing left to loose.
It then shows her asking for music to be played but she asks in french. You then get taken to a stage where she is doing ballet as a normal looking Lady Gaga, not the woman we saw in the hospital bed. Next it shows her going to sleep in a makeshift room and answering a phone, again she starts speaking french, and quickly shes starts going crazy and starts throwing things around her room. it also shows small clips of her dancing and looking like she doesn't know what she's doing.
It then shows her in her bath dying her hair blue. It seems that she went crazy with the pressure of dancing and ended up throwing away a dance career she could have had.
Then the actual song starts. At 8:49.
She is in a totally different place, it's dark, dirty and full of cars. There is amazing dancing. And I mean, AMAZING!
At the end of the video she has 'INTERSCOPE REDORDS HOLLYWOOD, CA, 4pm' written on her hand.
I think that the story portrayed through the video was of a woman who has just had an operation, who wants to be a star, hallucinates that she is a ballet dancer and she ruins that career, so she works hard and practices dancing and in the end she gets an appointment with a record company.
I loved how the video portrayed, especially because it had a bit of that Gaga panache. However i thought he video was a bot long (at over 13 minutes) and I wouldn't want all music videos to be like this but ,just because it's Lady Gaga, I'll make an exception.
Bought the Song: Yes
Bought the Video: I got it from the 12 days of Christmas app.
I hope you enjoyed this post,
