The spectacular video for Lady Gaga’s number one hit Born this Way premiered online on Monday.
Directed by fashion photographer Nick Knight and Gaga herself and choreographed by Laurieann Gibson, the elaborate seven minute clip begins with a pink triangle, a symbol of the oppression of gay people by the Nazis.
Gaga then gives birth to a fictional race of people that is free of prejudice.
“This is the manifesto of Mother Monster,” she says, before moving into dance sequences with a group of dancers.
The song recently debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard chart, making it the 1,000th No. 1 song in the chart’s 52-year history.
View the video below and tell us what you think about it. Is Gaga taking herself too seriously, or is the video a work of genius?
