Lady GaGa fights off the leak of her "You and I" music video. Initially set to make its way out this coming Thursday, August 18, the clip came out earlier by Tuesday afternoon, much to her dismay. "F*** THURSDAY," she tweeted a few hours later before rushing to release the official one.
Filmed in a corn field and a barn somewhere in Nebraska, the video shows the many faces of the Mother Monster including her male alter ego, Jo Calderone, and her mermaid self, Yuyi. "You must love all + every part of me, as must I, for this complex + incomprehensible force to be true," she wrote on Twitter.
"The [video is about the] idea that when you're away from someone you love, it's torture," she once said. "I knew I wanted the video to be about me sprinting back and walking hundreds of thousands of miles [ from New York City to Nebraska] to get him back."
"I'm walking with no luggage and no nothing and it's just me and my ankles are bleeding a little bit and there's grass stuck in my shoes and I've got this outfit on and it's real sort of New York clothing and I'm sprinting."
