In recent videos, she’s messed around with a zombie (“Born This Way”) and Jesus and Judas (“Judas”), and now it seems that Lady Gaga is looking to get with Enrique Iglesias — or someone that looks like him — in the upcoming clip for her new single, “The Edge of Glory.”
According to a casting notice that E! News got their paws on, Gaga is looking for a hot dude to make out with in the video. Specifically, the notice asks for a “Puerto Rican or Dominican type badass” who “must be willing to kiss Lady Gaga … Think Enrique Iglesias.”
In addition to the hot guy, the casting call also is seeking “Couture Doctors” who will wear smocks and black gloves, adding “think ’Dr. 90210′.” Other roles include a “male or female on-air reporter” and a group of military men to hold M16 rifles.
The video is set to shoot this weekend, and Gaga’s stylist Nicola Formichetti mentioned the clip on Twitter earlier this week, writing, “so excited of ’edge of glory’ shoot this week!! OMG…”
Gaga’s creative director and music video co-director, Laurieann Gibson, recently spoke to Rap-Up.com and teased fans a bit about what they can expect from the clip. “We’re actually getting ready to shoot ’Edge of Glory’ and I just directed her Google commercial, so it’s very fantastic,” she shared, adding about the video, “I just know that we’ll be feeling very fishy.”
Gaga also gave a dramatic live performance of “The Edge of Glory” during the “American Idol” finale on Wednesday night. Dressed as some kind of warrior princess, Mother Monster sang the song from a fake rocky mountaintop while amorously embracing a male dancer. As the tune came to an end, the two leaped from the peak and out of sight behind the rocky set.
Don’t miss “Lady Gaga: Inside the Outside” to hear Mother Monster herself open up about the creative forces behind her generation-defining career.
