Gaga marries 'The Night' in new 14 minute video

Lady Gaga is known for creating evocative mini-movies to provide the visuals for her singles, and "Marry the Night" is no different.

Gaga starts her opus with a voiceover and a medical ward. Stretched out on a gurney, Gaga tells her audience, "When I look back on my life, it's not that I don't want to see things exactly as they happened, it's just that I prefer to remember them in an artistic way. And truthfully, the lie of it all is much more honest, because I invented it."

She continues, "It's sort of like my past is an unfinished painting, and as the artist of that painting, I must fill in all the ugly holes and make it beautiful again. It's not that I've been dishonest. It's just that I loathe reality."

The singer as patient tells the nurse that she's going to be a star, since she has nothing left to lose.

We then segue through a series of scenes, portraying a ballet-dancing Gaga, a cereal-throwing, topless Gaga, a Gaga working it out in a dance audition, and at various points, a nude Gaga in the bathtub. (If that's something you'd rather not see, be wary of the watching the clip in its entirety below.)

The 25-year-old pop star told E! News that the music video is one of her most personal endeavors, as it captures the day she was dropped from Island Def Jam.

"It was one of the worst days of my life and it happened quite quickly, but in my mind, when I think back on that period in my life, it all happened very slow," she tells E!. "When you deal with things from your past, how do you personally view them, as opposed to what happened in a factual way? I could sit here all day and tell you exactly what happened that day but it's boring. It's really boring."

But, "if you give up after something like that, you were never destined to be an entertainer."

What do you think of Gaga's latest video?

    "Please don't think it's cliche' if I go nude today
    Don't call the cops now baby I perform this way

    No reason I should regret all the attention I get
    I'm not completely crazy I perform this way hey

    I perform this way hey, I perform this way hey
    I'm always deviating from the norm this way hey

    I perform this way hey, I perform this way hey
    I'm really not insane I just perform this way hey"

    I wonder who Al Yankovich was referring to with these lyrics?

    Great Video!

    I love the foil between the ballarina dancers and the studio dancers. It's a metaphor for how at her original record label, people were telling GaGa to make music that wasn't representative of her style and creativity. However, after she left, she found her place at the dance studio and at a label that understood her vision and her music. YAY DINA, the ballarina in the dance studio! Dina was one of the original dancers that GaGa had around when she first broke the scene with Just Dance.

    Some last things to think about....

    She's uses the bathtub scenes to depict her rebirth or baptism again into a different type of artist who follows her own path. (After all, she's already had her freakout/tantrum.)

    Also, did you catch the phoenix imagery at the end? She's a phoenix flyin again after reaching her nadar in her career.

    Lady Gaga (gag me) is the MOST over-rated wack job talent, just shock appeal for feeble-minded fans who themselves are confused in life.

    She will never ever be Madonna as hard as she tries!

    If she stays grounded and committed to her artistry she may well be the female version of the late Michael Jackson. The woman has tremendous talent.

    Enough with the Grace Jones hats – smoking? Nice mentoring for some of your little monsters. Otherwise – she's a super star.

    The nurse calls her a “morphine princess,” suggesting the trip is all about a drug overdose.

    But then the nurse advises her to abstain from intimacy for two weeks, which suggest an abortion.
