After multiple reports of Lady Gaga’s Staten Island video shoot for “Marry the Night” hit the Net, MTV News has confirmed that the singer indeed shot her fifth Born This Way clip in her native New York.
MTV News caught up with the CEO of the Snug Harbor Cultural Center, where the video was shot on Monday, to get some details about the “Marry the Night” visuals.
“We found both her and her crew to be easy to work with and low-key,” Lynn Kelly told us. “I think we would have expected a lot of drama, and the truth is, she is probably the most down-to-earth person. It was endearing. She was friendly and kind.”Lady Gaga “started to cry” the first time she heard the track for “Marry the Night.”
New York’s Daily News reports that Gaga was spotted hiding behind a sheet in order to keep her video look concealed from the many onlookers who stopped to catch a glimpse of the star.
According to tweets from passersby, dancers and extras were spotted dressed in multiple looks: some as ballerinas and others wearing leopard print. Gaga’s mom was reportedly on set and spoke to some of the Little Monsters. While Gaga remained relatively hidden during the shoot, one fan tweeted that she was spotted sporting thick, black eyeliner with her hair done up.
While she wouldn’t reveal any insider details about the video, Kelly did have only the highest praise for Mother Monster. “I think, for us, we’re so excited to have someone of her talent and to have somebody like that shoot here is a sheer honor,” she said. “What her music does for music is so much more than entertainment. It’s connecting to the arts on a much deeper level, and that’s what I hope we can do here.”
