Lady Gaga’s G.U.Y. Video Decoded

If you haven’t seen it yet, check out Lady Gaga’s new music video for the track G.U.Y. (Girl Under You) off her most recent album ARTPOP. At first watch, it seems like a bombastic montage of pop culture references, each more bizarre than the last throughout the nearly twelve minute video. However, I was completely blown away after reading a recent Buzzfeed article that decoded the imagery as if it were a dissertation on the subject. Greek mythology, Gandhi, Legos…these seemingly unrelated things actually come together to form a unique narrative, directed by Lady Gaga herself.

Watch the video and then read Buzzfeed’s exceptional breakdown of the video here.
