The Secret Society is known as G.U.Y. - girl under you. She’s under you (no longer at the top of the music industry) but she’s in control and powerful. Gaga and her idea of society - you don’t need to be on top to be powerful in the artistic sphere, in relationships and in the music industry.
The Price of Commercialism is the death of ART
Gaga has crash landed. She was a soaring phoenix during the incipient years of her rise in the pop industry. With her streaks of number 1s on the pop charts, that night she won 10 VMAs and winning multiple Grammys. She was also a cultural juggernaut.
However, after Born This Way, an injury and being cast out, she is left to die by those who only used her for money. TheY know that she is a money maker, however they don’t care about her. ART lies DEAD under the money of the men of the music industry. Pop reigns supreme.
But A hybrid can withstand these things
Gaga’s struggle to her feet reflects her solitude in the battle to be herself in a world where men only want to use her for money.
Venus, love and the need to rebirth
Neptune Pool is a cesspool for creativity. The HAUS and embryonic creative space bring her and heal her mind and soul - giving her the opportunity to rebirth from a safe space. It is both a funeral to lay to rest the pain of the past and a state of rebirth.
While she’s rebirthing and absent from the music industry, it is taken over by RHOBH like artists - A commentary on mindless money making hollow music
Appear awkward, glitz and glam while faux playing instruments. It is a commentary on shoving mindless and substance-less music down people’s throats. If I’m rich, if I can afford it, put me in a music video and make me look musical and professional. It is intentionally awkward. They would know that the blonde lady is playing the chello in the wrong position.
REBIRTH/Neptune Pool/Visual Filler
Dance scene, fashion, scenic crane shots - what a music video should be
Room full of rebirthed “Saints” “Philosophers” “Musical Icons”/ Cloning
There is a reference to Minecraft “/gamemode ARTPOP” (and previously Andy Cohen and the RHOBH - a show Gaga has professed to love). These together could represent elements of Gaga’s hobbies during the time of her injury. They are interspersed as comical and interesting parts of her personal life.
They take the DNA of Jesus (Love, Powerful, Wisdom), Ghandi, (Love, Wisdom), MJ (Talent, Love) and create a society of those who serve art (men in black suits). It is interesting to note that Ghandi, MJ and Jesus were all betrayed by the people they served. There is a duality here, Gaga could be talking about the love and compassion she spreads with her Little Monsters.
Taking over the Industry
Gaga blasts money to distract the money hungry music machine. With that opportunity, she uses it to push art, love and compassion into the industry. She removes the management from before. The reign of the money machine is over.
The world is now safe for her little monsters and people to leave the castle. For ART and POP to belong together.
