When I found that Nick Knight was director and Nicola Formichetti fashion director for Lady Gaga's new video for her single "born this way" I had really high expectations and was expecting something amazing. after days of searching continuously on Youtube for the highly anticipated video, it was finally released, and one word to describe it is WIERD!! Don't get me wrong I was expecting it to be completely eccentric, but the whole concept of Gaga as 'Mother Monster' and giving birth to good and evil in a kaleidoscopic way is just mental (and kind of not in a good way) along with her pyramid shoulder, cheek and forehead implants which are nasty!!
On the positive side she looks amazing in her studded bikini in the opening scene of the actual song. Her body is something i'd sell a vital organ for!! My favourite scene is the one where she is dressed in a Thierry Mugler tuexedo, has a mass of bright pink candy floss hair in a side ponytail and Gaga has been painted to look like a skeleton. The make up is so intricate and well done that it actually looks opaque. like her skin is transparent and that there is a light shining from the inside of her body.
All in all, its a video that will get people talking, it's not Nick Knights best work, I was impressed by Formichetti's work, but sadly its definitely no 'Telephone'!!
