So much for that Thursday night premiere on MTV.

After filming a low-concept, no-budget clip for "The Edge of Glory," Lady Gaga's "You and I" video features the singer back to basics, wearing a whole closet of bizarre get-ups.

The pop star even manages to cross-dress as both a man and a mermaid in what may be the most satisfying video yet from her "Born This Way" cycle.

Also: barnyard science experiments, various dance breaks, bloody stilettos and cornfield piano jams.

Watch below!

Gaga's male alter-ego in the video has a name -- Jo Calderone, who first premiered last September in Gaga's Vogue Hommes Japan photo spread.

Though we've seen pop stars make out with themselves in their videos before -- go ahead and rewatch Pink's "Sober" to see for yourself -- we can't remember when an artist dressed up as the opposite sex during their makeout sesh. Ah, Gaga, breaking boundaries yet again!

What do you think of Gaga's new video? Tell us below.

From what I'm seeing, Lady Gaga is using her song an video to make fun of country music and in particular Taylor Swift. Good for her for doing so too because she's far more talented than Taylor.
And good for her for making fun of an industry that for the past 20+ years has been cranking out crap like sausage at the Smithville ham torture chambers. I'll take Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Bluegrass and Folk any day of the week and twice on Sunday over the absolute garbage coming out of Nashville these days.
This is what I see.

       The song was catchy and well sung, but her video was inappropriate, just like all her other videos. She probably likes getting attention from pervs.

       Lady Gaga's music is really nice, and her song Born This Way is influencing. But she is using he well-meaning songs to say "Hey look at my junk! It's okay to be racy!" She and her director need to get a grip on her videos.

       To summarize my blabber, Lady Gaga uses good songs to send bad messages through her videos. Hey, I'm only thirteen and I agree with the adults in this case!

I love the music.  Thank goodness we are all different and have different opinions.  Personally, I wish I would have never seen the video because everytime I listen to this song, I will have haunting flashbacks of the whole thing. I think it is extremely disturbing and that is probably what reactions she is looking for.

So Past sick of Gaga and all her whatever you want to call it, what is sad is the song is not bad... Why does she have to ruin things with all her craziness???
