Lady Gaga in Her “Edge of Glory” Video

 

 

Lady Gaga always comes at us with an elaborate, over-the-top, fun and freaky production for her music videos. The first two singles off Gaga’s latest album “Born This Way” and “Judas” involved flashing lights and huge group dance numbers. With her reputation of pushing the limits, “Edge of Glory” comes as a shock. The music video is nothing short of simple, especially coming from Gaga.

Dancing the streets of New York by herself in ’80s style fishnets and leather, the pop star has contact with one other person the entire five minutes and 28 seconds. E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons works his magic on the saxophone while Gaga dances, walks with her head turned toward the camera, and dances some more.

Fans are already claiming that the video is a rip off of Madonna’s earlier work. Gaga has defended herself many times on the accusation of copying the Material Girl saying in an NME interview, “I’m a songwriter. I’ve written loads of music. Why would I try to put out a song and think I’m getting one over on everybody? That’s retarded.”

I think Lady Gaga’s performances of the song have been more exciting than the music video, particularly her elaborate production on American Idol.
