Lady Gaga‘s new video John Wayne, brings car and motorcycle chases, shootings of boot heels and a dramatic finish, accompanied by a lot of choreography.
For “John Wayne“, Lady Gaga reunited with Jonas Åkerlund, who worked at the “Paparazzi” and “Telephone” videos. As expected, her new video is a continuation of what we saw in “Million Reasons” and declares that had many discussions with the director for it to come up with a proper vision.
“I have known Jonas for a really long time and we’ve been wanting to work together again. He directed the music video, but the way we usually work is he likes to download from me all the visions of the song. I took him from a bunch of different scenarios and he helped to weave it together into a story. That’s what I like about him too, he has a very cinematic approach, but he doesn’t forget to make it a real music video.”
“John Wayne” is part of “Joanne” album that appeared last year and even had a super successful in sales. The first single released was “Perfect Illusion“, followed by “Million Reasons” and recently Lady Gaga managed to bring a new audience record for the Super Bowl. Although no one managed to surpass Katy Perry, Mother Monster has gathered an audience of 117.5 million viewers in 13 minutes.
