Lady Gaga has just debuted a 1 minute and 45 second preview to the actual video for “Marry The Night” and in true to Gaga fashion, the trailer video has a name and it’s longer than the actual video title: “Marry The Night: The Prelude Pathetique.”
The video opens with a brunette and seemingly ill Gaga being pulled into a hospital clinic on a stretcher. It’s hard to tell if this is taking place in the present or the past, but as Gaga is being wheeled in the camera pushes in on her face and we hear this voice over:
"When I look back on my life, it's not that I don't want to see things exactly as they happened, it's just that I prefer to remember them in an artistic way. And, truthfully, the lie of it all is much more honest because I invented it."
Lady Gaga is trying real hard to win both MTV VMA’s and a maybe an Oscar or two. All the “little monsters” out there are going to worship at her altar and probably pee their pants at the theatricality of it all.
The actual video for “Marry The Night” will be 7 minutes and 30 seconds. Pop stars have been doing the “short film”-“long video” concept forever, Back in the day, Michael Jackson made 7 minute videos for songs like “Ghost” and “Thriller” and it was awesome. When Lady Gaga makes a seven minute long video with “talking,” it's just too long.
Now back to the video (which was directed by Lady Gaga herself – high fives all around), Lady Gaga is pulled down a long hallway by two ultra chic nurses and the Gaga voice over says, “Those nurses, they’re wearing next season Calvin Klein and so am I. And the shoes? Custom Giuseppe Zanotti. I tipped their gauze hats to the side like Parisian berets because I think it’s romantic and I also believe that mint will be very big in fashion next spring.”
She is then pushed into a clinic room with other patients (Who will probably break out into a choreographed routine, let’s be real) and the tone turns ominous.
“And that girl on the left,” says Gaga “she ordered gummy bears and a knife a couple hours ago. They only gave her the gummy bears; I wish they'd only given me the gummy bears."
And on that mysterious note, the clip cuts to black. Does Lady Gaga do something with the knife? And who really ended up with a bag of gummy bears? I guess we’ll have to watch the whole video to find out.
