So. Lady Gaga‘s music video for “Born This Way” is out. It is the rather epic — over seven minutes! — story of a government-owned space territory called G.O.A.T. (no idea what that stands for but I’m sure I could take some acid and figure it out), where, like, a super harmonious group of people were born. Gaga explains in a voiceover (as kaleidoscoped images of childbirth give off some rather vaginal overtones):
“As the wombs numbered and the mitosis of the future began, it was perceived that this infamous moment in life is not temporal, it is eternal. and thus began the the beginning of the new race, a race within the race of humanity, a race which bears no prejudice, no judgment, but boundless freedom. But on that same day, as the eternal mother hovered in the multiverse, another more terrifying birth took place: the birth of evil.”
So how does Gaga fight the evil? By dancing in a bikini of course. I’m a big fan of sci-fi, so I can get down with this video’s story line. Also I am high on cold meds. Still can’t get over the horns though.
