LADY GAGA’S “FAME” SHORT FILM DIRECTED BY STEVEN KLEIN
Debuted at a masquerade ball at New York’s Guggenheim Museum, The Gaga’s short film to promote her new fragrance has been viewed by the pop star as yet another opportunity to express herself with the highest level of artistry. Produced by Ridley Scott on a seven-figure budget, the director and famous photographer Steven Klein speaks on the scene of muscled models climbing a giant Lady Gaga as one of the most complicated shots he has ever created. The scene required a 300-ft-long and 50-ft-tall sculpture and plenty of motion tracking, and creates perfectly the comment on the duality of fame - in its simultaneous pain and pleasure - in which Lady Gaga has been so interested for so long. Whether you like pop music or not, it’s undeniable that the singer consistently produces interesting content with sharp and expressive commentaries on the nature of pop culture.
