Lady Gaga has outdone herself yet again. In the brand-new video for her latest hit single, "Born This Way," the envelope-pushing pop star portrays the birth of "a race within the race of humanity, a race which bears no prejudice, no judgment, but boundless freedom." In what she describes as "the manifesto of Mother Monster," the pop superstar also depicts the birth of evil in the universe from -- where else? -- between her own legs. Alrighty then!
The seven-minute video is effects-heavy and visually stimulating, and doesn’t disappoint in terms of costume changes. Although a tiny, taut, relatively normal-looking Gaga in her skivvies struts around throughout most of the video, we also see the star donning skeleton makeup and a tuxedo, and then looking quite sinister as some kind of alien surrounded by disembodied heads. Watch for yourself below!
We're not sure if we're as crazy about Gaga's new video as we were about her iconic "Telephone" clip with Beyonce -- but it is intensely watchable. Like her questionably blasphemous video for "Alejandro," "Born This Way" flirts with religion, God and and being born from "capital H-i-m." And, like everything Gaga does, it's bound to spark discussion.
