While we only have to wait one day for Britney Spears‘ big “Hold It Against Me” video debut, Lady Gaga‘s “Born This Way” vid is a little further away. But those close to the singing sensation’s latest masterpiece are already raving about the Nick Knight-directed music video for the uplifting ditty.
“I can’t tell you, but I will tell you it is a life-changing experience,” Gaga’s choreographer Laurieanne Gibson said on MTV’s The Seven. “You can expect the highest level of execution in vocal music art and dance … but you will be shocked.”
Gibson wouldn’t divulge if her video would have a similar theme to her Grammy performance, she did talk about her hatching from an egg on the Grammy stage.
“Well, actually it’s a vessel. When Gaga played me the record, it took me quite some time to feel the direction and the inspiration, and when she played it for me two weeks later, I was like, ‘I think I got it.’ I said, ‘We have to birth a new race, a race that cannot hate.’ And, of course, as genius as she is, she runs with it.”
Gaga spent 72 hours inside the vessel, and Gibson explained the right precautionary measures were taken to keep the singer safe.
“We made sure the Lady was not suffocating with an oxygen tank in there while incubating, checking her new DNA, which was producing this new race,” she explained to MTV. “This race does not give up and does not give in.
“When you try to break this performance down, it minimizes the message,” she added. “It’s about the vocal performance while dancing the amazing choreography. It feels like a standalone dance piece, a standalone theatrical moment. The organ that was our church moment, our freeing moment, a call to arms.”
