Seeing Music : 'Born This Way' (Part I)

Hi guys ! LadyGaGaMcQueen here, so I was thinking about all the plans that I could do to explain those 7:20 minutes of Amazing GaGa Visuals, cause as you saw on the Title : My first post will be about Born This Way from GaGa !

Then I just said to myself that I could make 3 parts which are :
I - The Story
II - GaGa and Fashion
III - References

These three parts are actually independent, but you must read all of them if you wanna get the music video !

So here's the Beginning of my Show : Seeing Video !
BORN THIS WAY by Lady GaGa (Part I)

The Story

The story may be a bit complicated, even more when you're a fan cause you catch a lot of references and you might just don't get the whole story. Also I need to say that this is personal and when it comes to you, you may just get other messages and that's what I think it's good to talk about on comments and the people feelings.

So the text is : 
This is the manifesto of Mother Monster. On GOAT, a government-owned alien territory in space, a birth of magnificent and magical proportions took place. But the birth was not finite. It was infinite. As the womb slumbered and the mitosis of the future began, it was perceived that this infamous moment in life is not temporal, it is eternal. And thus began the beginning of the new race, a race within the race of humanity. A race which bears no prejudice, no judgement, but boundless freedom. But on that same day as the eternal mother hovered in the multiverse, another more terrifying birth took place: the birth of evil. And as she herself split into two, rotating in agony between two ultimate forces, the pendulum of choice began its dance. It seems easy, you imagine, to gravitate instantly and unwaveringly towards good. But she wondered : "How can I protect something so perfect without evil?"

What I can see is that she created a sort of Universe, and when I say CREATED, I say CREATED ! She gave birth to all the population that she called The New Race. I would rather call it the best Race. But what would be the Best without the worse ?
So the same day another population of the worse Race took place : the birth of evil.

An entire population on the Universe can't be just Nice (''A race which bears no prejudice, no judgement, but boundless freedom.")
Today there are a lot of wars all around the world and a lot of injustice.
-So Born This Way show the world situation ? 

For me almost the whole story is on this first part. The rest is a lot of commercial things and underground which don't advance the story at all.
We don't really have an answer, like almost all the GaGa's music videos !

Then for this first part I decided to ask one of my friends to ask her what she thinks about the story : 

"Well I think that the video is quite interesting- like many of Gaga's videos, it has nothing to do with the song. The content of the video does make me cringe at parts, the births and mitosis made freak out haha! It was all really quite strange, I did not understand half of it and the dressing up as skeletons was quite creepy in my opinion. However the lyrics is what I love!"

Then here's the question of this first part : What do YOU think about the story ? And did you get the same messages as me ?

Yes, the message may be scary, but I just think that it was made for it. People need to be scared to move their *ss !
