All right, Little Monsters and non-Monsters, Lady Gaga's back with her newest music video for "Alejandro." It's another epic and self-indulgent nine-minute-long journey (and feels even longer!), so make sure you plan your day accordingly.
Beautifully shot by Steven Klein (one of Madonna's favorite photographers), Gaga has said it's supposed to be a "celebration of [her] love and appreciation for the gay community." Hence the shirtless men with bowl cuts dancing around in high heels and underwear that concludes with Gaga doing a little Bob Fosse-esque dance and stripping for them in a giant orgy. Oh, and while we're at it, let's throw in some Catholic imagery in there for good measure. Controversy!
We've come to expect a lot from the Lady, and while this video is gorgeous to look at, we're not so sure it lives up to the rest of her work. What do you think?
