This Friday was defined by a visual treat courtesy of Lady Gaga: a surreal music video for “911”, a song from her album Chromatica. But the short also came with a touch of wit in keeping with the song’s inspirational sanity message.In an interview with Apple Music in May, Gaga shared that “911” relates to an antipsychotic drug called Olanzapine which is prescribed to the pop star. ” […] it’s because I can’t always control the things my brain does. I know it. And I have to take medication to stop the process that’s happening, ”Gaga explained. In film form, this results in Gaga stranded in a barren desert landscape, blindfolded and surrounded by halved grenades. Next is a mysterious masked rider, a stumbled village, and a myriad of beauty looks – an aquamarine mane twisted into a variety of updos, coordinating eye makeup, a manicure on the glove, and headdresses that go from menacing to angelic. . But all of those eye-catching elements culminate in a stunning revelation: The scene is a dream built from surrounding factors, induced after Gaga lost consciousness in a car crash. “I didn’t have my pills,” Gaga sobs as paramedics try to calm her down.
In an Instagram caption promoting the film, Gaga further clarified its meaning. “This short film is very personal to me, my experience of mental health and how reality and dreams can interconnect to form heroes in us and all around us,” Gaga wrote. She then thanked her dedicated fans. “I’m awake now, I can see you, I can smell you, thank you for believing in me when I was so scared.” Something that was once my real everyday life is now a movie, a true story that is now the past and not the present. It is the poetry of pain.
