I can’t wait to hear Lady Gaga explain her latest video, “Alejandro.” Mostly because after watching it (twice!), I have absolutely no clue what’s going on beyond the obvious. The video starts with a bowl cut-sporting army of men marching in nothing but high shorts and boots. The scene switches to Gaga returning a small red pillowy gift with an “A” on it, presumably Alejandro’s heart, to a queen-like lady in black—also played by Gaga. Later she strips down to her bra and panties to join the scantily clad men, now in underwear and black high heels, in their sleeping quarters for some dirty dancing.
The next outfit change features her most Madonna-esque look yet: black slacks and a matching bra with machine guns attached. The Fame Monster‘s latest clip concludes with a montage of war shots and a funeral. Unlike her last mini-movie, “Telephone,” this offering doesn’t have storyline that’s easy to follow. There’s more room for assumption and guessing. That said, watch the eight minute video after the jump and tell us what you think it’s about. Who died? What caused the war? Who gave those soldiers bowl cuts? I need to know!
