Gaga Goes Country, Becomes a Mermaid

Finally, something new and not overly dramatic--even though she does appear to be crying in one scene at the beginning. The song is a fresh departure from her usual dance, pop tunes. It's more country this time and I don't hate it at all.

As for the video, the usual Gaga elements like over-the-top outfits, sex and unusual characters are present--she even becomes a man (Jo Calderone) and a mermaid in it. One of my favorite looks is the one reminiscent of her Vanity Fair cover. It's like 'Children of the Corn' (grown-up and slutty version).

Like I said, the song and video are not heavy on the drama but still captivating. Good job I say.
