NEW YORK, NY – Lady Gaga announced that she will be filming the music video for “Born This Way” in outer space!
Apple’s iTunes announced on Friday that Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” was the fastest-selling track in the history of iTunes, selling more than 1 million copies in five days and hitting the #1 spot in all 23 countries with iTunes stores.
The announcement could not have come at a better time for Gaga, who recently made headlines by emerging from an egg during her performance at the Grammy’s and landing the #1 spot on the Billboard’s Hot 100.
But now that the Grammy’s are over, Gaga fans across the country are anxious to see what kind of over-the-top stunts the singer has planned for her “Born That Way” music video.
Fortunately, those fans won’t have to wait much longer, because in an exclusive interview with Weekly World News, Lady Gaga announced that she will be filming the entire music video in outer space.
The music video, the first ever to be filmed in space, will be directed by Jonas Akerlund, a Swedish film and music video producer. His last collaboration with Lady Gaga was for her 2010 video “Telephone.”
A source told the Weekly World News that the video was filmed over a two week period, and involved sending a fifteen-person camera crew into space on a private American space shuttle.
Since the footage for the video was filmed outside the shuttle, producers collaborated with NASA officials in order to make sure that all necessary precautions were taken during the outer-space filming.
“We knew we couldn’t have Lady Gaga just floating around in space,” said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, “so we had to make sure she was outfitted with all of the proper gear – space suit and everything. It cost us a fortune, but the result was well worth it.”
According to insider reports, the space suit was fashioned by Thierry Mugler and was designed to look like a giant condom.
“If there’s one way to describe Lady Gaga, it’s ‘out of this world’” said Nicola Formichetti, Gaga’s personal stylist and close friend. “And what better way to demonstrate that than by shooting her video in outer space. I think it’s perfect!”
According to MTV France, Lady Gaga’s “Born this Way” music video is set to premier on February 24th. So mark your calendars everybody, because you’ll want to remember where you were on the day Lady Gaga made music video history.
