Born this way: il nuovo video di Lady Gaga

– Video alla fine dell’articolo –

Arriva il nuovo video di Lady Gaga, Born this way.

Come usuale, la star americana anticipa ogni sua mossa con un alone di mistero e pochi dettagli, dando appuntamento ai fan sul suo canale Vevo.

Alle 17 di questo pomeriggio, 11 di mattina in Usa, è finalmente comparso il nuovo video, seguito dei fortunatissimi Bad Romance, Telephone e Alejandro.

Se da un lato Gaga sembri aver imparato alla perfezione le tecniche del marketing virtuale e virale, migliaia le visite del video e i download venduti in poche ore, c’è da sottolineare che i fan sono spesso spaesati dalle scelte estreme. Non ultima, la polemica sul pezzo Born this way, presentato due settimane fa ai Grammy: troppo somigliante a Express yourself di Madonna, per molti, niente di nuovo, per altri.

l video ha la durata tipica di un videoclip cui la cantante ci ha già abituati, circa otto minuti, una sorta di cortometraggio.

Migliaia di colori, deformazioni fisiche e l’ingresso in un universo parallelo popolato dagli amati monsters, nomignolo che la cantante ama affibbiare ai numerosi fans in tutto il mondo.

Ospite d’eccezione nella clip, introdotta da un’inquietante Manifesto of Mother Monster, Rick Zombie, uno degli uomini più tatuati del mondo per aver dipinto la sua pelle, testa e volto compreso, di un disegno a dir poco…scheletrico.

Di seguito, il testo di Born this way, dedicato, in gran parte, all’amato mondo LGBT, e, ancora, il videoclip pubblicato qualche ora fa su Vevo.

[Intro]
It doesn’t matter if you love him,
Or capital H-I-M
Just put your paws up
‘cause you were born this way, baby

[Verse 1]
My mama told me when I was young
We are all born superstars

She rolled my hair and put my lipstick on
In the glass of her boudoir

“there’s nothin wrong with lovin who you are”
She said, “‘cause he made you perfect, babe”

“so hold your head up girl and you’ll go far,
Listen to me when I say”

[Chorus]
I’m beautiful in my way
‘cause god makes no mistakes
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

Don’t hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you’re set
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

[Post-chorus]
Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby I was born this way
Baby I was born this way
Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby I was born-
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

Don’t be a drag – just be a queen
Don’t be a drag – just be a queen
Don’t be a drag – just be a queen
Don’t be!

[Verse 2]
Give yourself prudence
And love your friends
Subway kid, rejoice your truth

In the religion of the insecure
I must be myself, respect my youth

A different lover is not a sin
Believe capital h-i-m (hey hey hey)
I love my life I love this record and
Mi amore vole fe yah (love needs faith)

[Chorus]
I’m beautiful in my way
‘cause god makes no mistakes
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

Don’t hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you’re set
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby I was born this way
Baby I was born this way
Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby I was born-
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

[Bridge]
Don’t be a drag, just be a queen
Whether you’re broke or evergreen
You’re black, white, beige, chola descent
You’re lebanese, you’re orient
Whether life’s disabilities
Left you outcast, bullied, or teased
Rejoice and love yourself today
‘cause baby you were born this way

No matter gay, straight, or bi,
Lesbian, transgendered life
I’m on the right track baby
I was born to survive
No matter black, white or beige
Chola or orient made
I’m on the right track baby
I was born to be brave

[Chorus]
I’m beautiful in my way
‘cause god makes no mistakes
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

Don’t hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you’re set
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

[Outro]
I was born this way hey!
I was born this way hey!
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way hey!

I was born this way hey!
I was born this way hey!
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way hey!
