Watch Lady Gaga in “Perfect Illusion” Music Video (Review)

Lady Gaga’s latest single “Perfect Illusion” has taken the music world by a storm, as expected, and today we have the official music video for the track. The music video has been directed by Ruth Hogben and Andrea Gelardin and features an energetic Lady Gaga singing her heart out. The song appears in Lady Gaga’s upcoming album ‘Joanne.’

The setting for the music video is a concert (artificial, of course) and Lady Gaga performing “Perfect Illusion” to her fans, and at times in a lonely desert. She sings the chorus;

It wasn’t love, it wasn’t love
It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion)
Mistaken for love, it wasn’t love
It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion)
You were a perfect illusion

Song Meaning of “Perfect Illusion” by Lady Gaga

I don’t need eyes to see
I felt you touchin’ me
High like amphetamine
Maybe you’re just a dream
That’s what it means to crush
Now that I’m wakin’ up
I still feel the blow
But at least now I know

Although cleverly veiled by the Pop music and energetic dance moves, the song is essentially about a devastating heartbreak. That’s why Lady Gaga refers to the relationship as a mere illusion than true love.

The singers reminisces back the times with her lover and is still trying figure out if it all was a dream or was she high. But she sure is waking up to the bitter truth now and she is still glad she is seeing the truth now.

Tryin’ to keep control
Pressure’s takin’ its toll
Stuck in the middle zone
I just want you alone
My guessing game is strong
Way too real to be wrong
Caught up in your show
Yeah, at least now I know

The first verse speaks about the inevitable breakup that’s looming in the horizon. ‘Middle zone’ is the worst zone to be stuck in when you are in a relationship. You don’t have a clue what is going on and the doubt, the wait, the silence and the hopelessness is taking a toll on the relationship.

We believe Lady Gaga has released a perfect catchy tune in promotion of her upcoming album ‘Joanne’ which will be released on October 21, 2016. I assume we will be seeing a couple more singles and music videos before the album drops out.

In the meantime, let us know what you think about the new single and music video for “Perfect Illusion”. Is Lady Gaga back with fire or what?
