I saw Lady Gaga's new video "Marry The Night" last Saturday and I was just superbly blown away. It stuck with me. I love the awesome choreography of the dance sequence (which will spark numerous homages in youtube soon) and I wish I could dance it with Lady Gaga in the video. I also love the video because it pushes new boundaries in how music videos are made. It has a rich narrative and not just simply random images you often see in other videos.
When Lady Gaga was asked about this song she said its about having the convictions to pursue your passions. I think she did just that for her career and this video is like looking back at her struggles and her beginnings and how she overcame them all.I think this is the biggest reason why I love the song. It struck a chord with me because I also pursued my passions. It wasnt easy because I also faced challenges..tough ones but I forged ahead.
This look is an homage to the song. The use of contrasting textures: shiny and matte, black and white, classic and avant garde, leather versus soft cotton tailored shirt, all perfect examples of the hard edged and romantic style that is a dominant theme in Lady Gaga's songs.
