I actually quite like her new upbeat song Applause. The photographer in me however, absolutely loves the video. All due credit to film makers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, to stylist Brandon Maxwell, and to Stefani Germanotta herself (Lady G to you and me) for wearing as little as possible whilst looking the best and zaniest dressed woman of the 21st century.
Just… Wow! What a way to make your comeback after a 24 month absence due to – among other things – health problems and recovering from hip surgery.
The vid is fast moving, punchy and fits beautifully with the song. It is a whole series of cameo moments encompassing mythological characters ranging from the The Mad Hatter, The Little Mermaid, Black swan and even a Unicorn.
There is plenty of the near nudity to keep the attention focussed as we have come to expect from the flamboyant Lady G, with her lingerie choices ranging from stuck-on sea shells to an uplifting bra in the shape of a pair of hands.
So… turn your speakers up loud and click the “full screen” button and enjoy Lady Gaga’s comeback. I guarantee you’ll watch it more than once!
Let’s hope there’ll be another tour coming soon!
