Lady Gaga released her new music video for “Yoü and I” via her 1,000th tweet (and PerezHilton.com) Tuesday afternoon.Surprise — it’s bizarre. Even for Gaga.
In addition to cameos from “her male alter ego, Jo Calderone,” there’s a wedding, a creepy ice cream truck in the middle of a field, and dancing in a horse stable.
Oh, and mermaid sex.
Gaga’s tweet read, “You must love all + every part of me, as must I, for this complex + incomprehensible force to be true.”
Fine. But Gaga needs to remember there’s a difference between thought-provoking and attention-getting. Unless we’re missing the social metaphor hidden in mermaid sex.
(By the way, we’re kind of surprised Gaga’s doing anything with this song — didn’t seem like she had plans for it when she let Haley Reinhart sing it on “American Idol” in May.)
