Lady Gaga – ‘Edge of Glory’ Official Video

Go take a look at Lady Gaga’s new video for Edge of Glory.  I’ll be over here.

I’m reading a lot of hate about the latest video from Gaga–everything from “what’s with the 80′s SAX player?

Clarence "The Big Man" Clemons and Bruce Springsteen

I’ll tell you what’s up, kids–that’s 69 year old CLARENCE CLEMONS from Bruce Springsteen’s E Street BandLook it UP, Donna. (By the way, The Big Man suffered a stroke earlier this week and is still listed in serious condition.)

I’ll agree that Edge of Glory didn’t give me goosebumps like Bad Romance or Born This Way, but I appreciate the 80′s feel of the video.  Oh, nostalgia.  It reminded me of MJ’s Billie Jean, Tina Turner’s What’s Love Got to Do With It, and even Terri Nunn from the 80′s band Berlin.

I also appreciate the low-budget sound stage feel–the fire escape and window, dancing down a dark, wet city street–you know, like three-quarters of every 80′s video ever to air on MTV.  I believe it’s called an HOMAGE?


Do your homework before you start bitching about something you clearly know nothing about.

  1. Love you, girl. I watched it once, said okay. Watched it a second time, said this is pretty good. It’s very low key for her, but I liked it…

  2. [...] Last night on So You Think You Can Dance, Lady Gaga premiered her newest video, Edge of Glory. Even though the popstar was decked out in Versace and her requisite overdone beauty look, she somehow managed to omit the high-concept theatrics that have been the appeal of her previous videos. Alternating between shots on a fire escape, a stoop, and an uncharacteristically empty Lower East Side street, Lady Gaga spends five whole minutes spaz dancing, batting her eyes into the camera, and reclining against a 69-year-old saxophone player (Clarence Clemons from Bruce Springsteen‘s E Street Band) that’s set up shop on her stoop. The craziest thing about the video was that I watched the whole thing, and that you probably will too. Scroll down to see for yourself. [HaveUHeard, DippedInCream] [...]
