Yoü And I...

Gaga's known for her out-of-this-world videos and this one basically threw a middle finger to all other videos this year. What other video has mermaid sex (still wondering how does it acutually work), creepy ice-cream truck men, Gaga on Gaga action, psychotic running through cornfields, and not one, but two alter egos thrusting about?

While Jo Calderone, Gaga's male alter ego, pretty much stole the show, it's basically about her roller-coaster relationship with a man who tried to change her and the imagery is stark and ethereal.

This video shares the same theme as many of her other songs: Love is hard, but never sacrifice who you are for someone else. The hunky scientist in the video, played by The Vampire Diaries' Taylor Kinney, is trying to change Gaga's other alter ego, the mermaid Yuyi, from mystical creature to human; a metamorphosis that she tries to resist.
