When I first saw it I thought Lady Gaga was making fun of video ho's by having man ho's in her video.
Then my husband looked it up on Google and he saw this: http://vigilantcitizen.com/?p=3979
Which is very interesting - a lot of conjecture about the illuminati, God, and homosexual undertones.
I looked it up and got this: http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1641136/20100609/lady_gaga.jhtml
Apparently the director was thinking about a woman's lost love.
Interesting how people assign their own weird meanings to things.
When I was at University I took an English class, the teacher had us read Cinderella and then wanted us to write about the feminist undertones of the story. How it highlighted the oppression of women.
I wrote that there were no feminist undertones to the story, that people just assigned their own meanings to it, ones the author never intended. I wrote that Cinderella was just a story written by some guy trying to shut his kids up, put them to bed, and teach them a lesson at the same time. The moral of Cinderella - be nice to people or it just may bite you in the ass, aka what goes around comes around.
The teacher was a bit pissed at me at going "off topic" but at least she gave me a C instead of an F.
