Something About, Baby, You And I

The video everyone was talking/tweeting/blogging about is finally here - Lady Gaga's Yoü and I was just released, one day ahead of schedule.
When I first heard You and I was chosen as Gaga's latest single from Born This Way I was sort of on the fence - since the song wasn't one of my favorites; don't get me wrong, I love every song on her album, but I believe there were some stronger choices. Next, when it was said that Gaga would be walking from New York to Nebraska I became a bit skeptical.


This was of course after the release of Edge of Glory, where Gaga was walking down the streets of New York, instead of, well, being a mermaid as her choreographer, Laurieann Gibson hinted. So, after a video that turned to be something completely different than what was rumored, this time around I didn't want to pay attention to any of the rumors that were going around.


As stills from the video began to surface, I couldn't help but getting excited about this new video, since one thing I always look for is creativity and beautiful imagery - and You and I undoubtedly has that.
I know people usually hate when artists get compared to one another, but I liked how this video chose to go more conceptual, perhaps like something we'd see from iamamiwhoami (click here to get a taste if you don't know what I'm talking about).


Outfit-wise, Gaga chose to go all out and make a whole lot of characters come to life, including Jo Calderone (her male alter-ego) and Yuyi the mermaid. Also, her black outfit reminded me a bit of the ending from Telephone, and the simple, etherial look when she's playing the piano in the cornfield made me think of her unforgetable Vanity Fair photoshoot.


In other words, this video manages to be completely new, while at the same time showcasing everything Gaga's fans have grown to love about her.

  1. foarte tare si piesa si videoclipul....mi se pare putin coutnry-rock...so unlike gaga! dar...eu o iubesc pentru  faptul ca poate face ca orice piesa sa sune bine.

  2. acum, la a doua vizionare nu pot sa observ cum linia melodica si versurile nu au nimic in comun cu videoclipul :)) mi se pare oare? mi se pare un soi de balada cu videoclip sci-fi :))

  3. Gaga has been slacking on her videos lately, in my opinion.  I was a die-hard Gaga fan ever since I heard of her, but I haven't enjoyed the past couple.  Maybe I will like this one better!!  I love it when her outfits are totally amazing, and her dancing is off the hook, and she shakes her groove thing!

    I totally loved the video, but I do agree with you. I wanted something more conceptual. Thanks for the recommendation of iamamiwhoami . Loved it .

  5. in special cand canta ceva live, stilul ei devine total diferit fata de versiunea studio.

  6. in mod ciudat cred ca exista o legatura destul de buna intre video si mesaj, dar totusi este vorba de gaga, toate clipurile ei sunt intr-o oarecare masura diferite de melodie (telephone de exemplu?)

  9. Lady Gaga = sort of creepy and original
    But her male alter-ego was...... really male-like. Does that make any sense? :)) poate in curand o vedem si prin filme, S.F fo' sure :D
