Gaga gets Fishy again...or does she?
This is of course not the first time Gaga's dabbled in mermaidery she dressed mermish in the Paparazzi video and also posed for Vanity Fair looking like Sea Nymph.
There was nothing fishy or mermaidenly about the video. It was not under the sea or anything. There is a reason for this according to the New York Post:
Yesterday he ( Joseph Kahn ) Tweeted, "I did NOT direct Lady Gaga's 'Edge of Glory' video. Lady Gaga did -- I don't co-direct. One canvas, one paintbrush. Respect the art. Very simple rule with me."
This seemed to imply disagreements on the set, a theory that has been corroborated by Joseph's team, sources close to production and, well, watching the video.
One such insider, Chancler Haynes (Kahn's on-set editor), revealed on Twitter exactly what went down in a series of DM's with a fan ... who then released the conversation.
It seems that the mermaid motif GaGa debuted on "Le Grand Journal" was supposed to be the video's theme as well. "[Joseph Kahn] had sets built for a hospital scene, Brooklyn Bridge, and a big underwater mermaid scene. It all made sense. Concept was done," Chancler wrote.
But somewhere along the way there was, to hear Laurieann tell it, "an issue." One that, according to Chancler, stemmed straight from The Haus of GaGa. "GaGa changed her mind and told Joseph what to do. His hands were tied. The director just didn't have control over GaGa after she started making changes [and] Joseph's concept died."
Ok so was anything shot or filmed before the mind change? I mean other than the production stills. If so I really hope we get a peek!
