Lady Gagaâ€™s Mermaid-Themed Music Video Is Still A Go
July 12, 2011
Those of us who were eagerly anticipating Lady Gagaâ€™s music video take on The Little Mermaid have reason to rejoice: it seems the â€œfishyâ€ idea originally intended for the lackluster â€œEdge Of Gloryâ€ visual has legs after all, and is being repurposed for the veiled party girlâ€™s next vid. In an interview with Taiwanâ€™s Channel V (filmed in Sydney), the recent Current Affair guest reveals that her mermaid creation Yuyi is â€œincubatingâ€ and will be â€œbornâ€ in her visual spectacle for the as-yet-unannounced next single from Born This Way. (But hopefully, we will be spared actually witnessing Mother Monster give birth this time.)
Unfortunately we donâ€™t yet know which single the mermaid tale will go along with â€” â€œYou And Iâ€? â€œMarry The Nightâ€? â€œHeavy Metal Loverâ€? We do know Gagaâ€™s next aquatic adventure is bound to be a touch more daring than, say, Sebastian the crab singing â€œUnder The Sea.â€ (May we suggest an instrumental cameo by a banded bulbous snarfblat?) Itâ€™s good to hear that this splashy-sounding idea will still be part of our world after all.
Or maybe weâ€™ve got it all wrong, and itâ€™s really just a tribute to fellow New York-lover Bette Midler?
