Keeping with tradition, I feel obligated to post Lady Gaga’s new video for “Alejandro” that premiered today. The first time I watched it my initial reaction was WTF!?!, I sat there for a while and tried to process it then, I watched it again and felt the same. Somehow Lady Gaga has managed to create something that makes no sense, but is still, somehow, completely amazing.
This is how Lady Gaga explains the video:
“It’s a celebration and an admiration of gay love – it confesses my envy of the courage and bravery they require to be together. I’ve been unable to find that with a straight man in my life. In the video I’m pining for the love of my gay friends – but they just don’t want me.”
