Very cool to see her sing Orange Colored Sky. And to see her in the designer outfits with normal makeup, etc.
I read somewhere that she did direct the special and she has also directed the upcoming video for the 'Marry The Night' single. Gaga recently split with her choreographer and creative director Laurieann Gibson and is apparently taking on the creative director role herself. I agree that it was nice to see her dressed a little more conservatively for the holiday special but I don't expect it to last long. She's appearing on the Grammy nomination show this week and I'd be willing to bet she will be back in full on crazy-Gaga mode there.

She recently did some promo appearances in Europe with one of them being at the Bambi awards in Germany. I really like this performance of 'Marry The Night' with just her and her band (no dancers) but it is bizarre seeing this elegant crowd dressed to the nines sitting there like stones while she's performing her heart out. Then when the song is barely over Karl Lagerfield appears to give her an award to very lukewarm applause. It just seemed almost insulting to her. I don't know much about the Bambi awards so maybe that's always the way they are with performers. Anyway, the performance is good. Enjoy!

I was really pleasantly surprised by the special. It was charming and delightfully old-fashioned, like the old holiday specials of yore.

I teared up a bit myself when she talked about her family.

Yeah, I always just listen to the first two tracks of Born This Way, then skip over to Edge of Glory and turn it off.

I should probably just listen to a pop station for 20 minutes.

You talkin bout the song, the video, or both?

Thought that most of the video was pretty brilliant...especially the first 5 minutes or so. And the very end. Her narration is great - equal parts meta/pretentious/funny as hell. The video loses a bit of steam after a while when it becomes just another typical choreographed dance number, but I think it's still easily her best video from this album, and her best video since "Telephone."

The song and the video, really. Maybe my favorite thing she's done yet on both fronts. Especially love the bits of the video where the actual song kicks in, and the cross-cutting/dance numbers really flesh out. Though yeah, does become a bit more traditional at that point, but it's kind of unavoidable really. Also maybe because the first 1/2-2/3 of the video rely more on her straight up filmmaking abilities, which have considerably improved (nice to see her taking on a more directly creative role in that department) but she's still not quite a filmmaker yet.

The album on the whole is really growing on me though. Not sure how often I'll listen to the entire thing straight through - that's kind of an overload of dance-pop music, but yeah, love it.

I fucking love Marry the Night.

The video .... I didn't hate it, but the long versions of her videos are usually only watchable about once for me. Then just give me the short versions.

I thought the dancing in this one was much better than in previous. I don't know much about dance, but I don't usually care for her choreography. But I think I read she's parted ways with her choreographer, so maybe that's why I like it better in this video.

Yeah, Laurieann Gibson. She was Gaga's choreographer and "creative director." She was fired like three weeks ago.

I don't think Gibson was involved with this video. They acknowledged a few weeks ago that she was no longer working with Gaga but I think the actual split happened several months ago. It looks like the last Gaga-related project Gibson was involved in was the 'You and I' video which she directed and that came out in August.

I love the song and I like the video. Considering this was Gaga's first time as the sole director I think she did a very good job, but I do agree that it's a little too long to be highly rewatchable. I'm surprised that she didn't put out a shorter version with the intro cut to a minute or two that may be better used to promote the single, at least I haven't seen one.

A video has emerged of pre-fame Gaga performing a couple of club sets. The songs aren't great but it is interesting to see her evolving toward popstar-Gaga.

There was also a YouTube link but I figured that was more likely to get deleted than the Vimeo link. Guess not!

Here's the YouTube one:

Here's the sketch of the brand new stage design for her "Born This Way" world tour:



Looks pretty cool. A castle/church thingy with a U2-esque ramp thingy. The inner circle area is called "The Monster Pit."

I would go if someone bought my ticket for me.

This.

Definitely one of those acts who may not have one great album, but have enough songs I love that I would have a great time at their show.

i've been wondering when the hell this tour's going to happen. the album's only been out for nearly a year now. she's deserved a break sure, it's just odd.

I thought she was still touring from the last tour!

Would definitely go again if she comes near here. Stage looks cool.

Yeah, the whole thing was bass-ackward. I mean, who releases a brand new album a few weeks after the END of their two-year worldwide tour? And then doesn't tour the new album until nearly a year later when it's pretty much played out? They should have had her take an extended break starting last January then release the new album in May and start touring again in June or July.

But there are rumors that she has been working on another album for release this year and wants to incorporate it into the new tour so there's that.
