Lady Gaga may have gone under the radar (musically) after her wild ride with Bradley Cooper following the success of A Star is Born, and while launching her new beauty line, Haus Laboratory, Gaga was smart to make sure her fans get the music they want.
Returning from what would be a three-year hiatus, the Poker Face singer has released a new audio, Stupid love, accompanied by a colour-popping video.
The new creation did not however course an entirely new territory as the sound could be highly attributed to the artist’s original taste and the visuals follow suit. It’s not the first time Gaga has produced sonic pop sound and created videos that took us outer-space, recall her previous album, Artpop. True fans are nonetheless excited about this nostalgic dose of entertainment, probably something they have craved for a while now.
The video for Stupid love opens with a storyline intro (similar to Born this way), and we see Gaga dressed in galactic pink costume with several distinct groups of dancers in a rocky wilderness seemingly planet Mars.
The fashion styling and location quickly brings Ariana Grande’s Break free to mind. The latter in her 2014 video had some tribal/techno face drawings, a group of “alien” friends, fought enemies in a Mars-looking planet, all similar to Gaga’s iPhone-shot video.
Stupid love‘s lyrics professes Gaga’s need for love and her constant search for it. The singer who was engaged to Christian Carino from February 2017 to February 2019 didn’t exactly make it to the alter even after rocking a huge, pink diamond ring of up to $400,000! And then came the endless rumours of dating co-star Bradley Cooper during the time of shooting and promoting A star is Born, plus that intimate performance of Shallow on the Oscars stage that only caused more speculations.
Perhaps, the first verse of her new song is an outcry for true love:
You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for
Gotta quit this cryin’, nobody’s gonna
Heal me if I don’t open the door
Kinda hard to believe, gotta have faith in me
The sensational artist had announced that her new music album will be titled: Adele, but we don’t know for sure if that is jokingly referring to British singer Adele or an actual case we should take seriously.
Anyway, a new record is here, so let’s dance!
