After the low key clip for “Edge of Glory,” in which she abandoned plans to appear as a mermaid in favor of just singing on a city-themed soundstage, the video for “YoÃ¼ and I” marks a return to the lavishly produced mini films fans have come to expect from Gaga. Bette Midler had briefly marked her claim on the mermaid in a wheelchair costume, with several tweets before sending another saying “Fabulous mermaids can coexist.”
Gaga had announced that her new video would be her 1000th tweet. “YoÃ¼ and I” was scheduled to premiere on Thursday and earlier today fans were curious about a series of tweets from the performer that read, “Fuck,” “Thurs,” and “Day” before she sent a link to the new video marking her 1000th message sent via Twitter.
