    "Two days it took me to shoot it," says the star of E!'s The Dance Scene. "We scouted Universal and we just art-directed it to the ninth. We changed the face of it, we created the new Jerusalem. But it was a very magical experience to shoot a video on the Universal lot. It's so Hollywood."

    But it certainly wasn't an easy task. They had to keep on schedule and budget, even if it meant Gibson getting a little bossy with the pop superstar.

    "There was, 'You're directing, so please don't go over budget," Gibson says of the on-set time crunch. "Lady Gaga's still in her trailer. Who's going to get her out? She's still trying on clothes. I go, 'Knock, knock, knock, knock. Gaga, we're directing. It's our money now,' and out she comes. So it was fun holding her accountable for how long she would take in her glam."
