Gritty Undressed Pop Memoirs

The Lady Gaga 'Marry the Night' Video is Honest and Eerie

— December 4, 2011 — Pop Culture
The life of music superstar Lady Gaga might look like all glitz and glam, but the singer's 'Marry the Night' video tells a much darker tale. Directed by Gaga herself, the epic music video stretches over 13 minutes, depicting the gritty events that occurred on the day she lost her contract with record label Island Def Jam.

"It was one of the worst days of my life and it happened quite quickly, but in my mind, when I think back on that period of my life, it all happened very slow," explained the woman formerly known as Stefani Germanotta, to E! before the video's debut on December 1, 2011. Beginning in what appears to be a clinic or mental health hospital, the short film follows Gaga to an apartment for a short breakdown that involves broken mirrors, dyed hair and a wasted box of Cheerios. From there, the viewer is brought to a dance studio, at which point the song, Marry the Night, actually begins.

After some much-appreciated dancing and flashy choreography, the Marry the Night video wraps up on quite a higher note than it started, implying that the star was able to pull herself together and recover for an appointment with her current label, Interscope Records. As a fan of the infamous newsmaker, I couldn't be more pleased with the video, which combines theatricality and brutal honesty in a way that could be compared to the work of David Lynch.

Have a seat, and check out the Marry the Night video for yourself.
