PREMIERE: 911 - The New Short Film by Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga has just premiered the release of the highly anticipated new music video for '911,' the official third single from her album Chromatica. The video was premiered on Sept. 18 at  9AM PT / 12PM EST. The video was premiered on her YouTube channel simultaneously on MTV, MTVU and MTVLive as well.

According to Gaga's interview with Zane Lowe, the song talks about an antipsychotic she takes because she can’t control her brain. ”I have incredible doctors, they do not give me any kind of narcotic, when I sing Pop a 911, it’s not an opioid, I don’t take any pain medication because it’s not healthy for me.”

Gaga shared a message on her Instagram about the video saying: "This short film is very personal to me, my experience with mental health and the way reality and dreams can interconnect to form heroes within us and all around us." 

"I’d like to thank my director/filmmaker Tarsem for sharing a 25-year-old idea he had with me because my life story spoke so much to him; I’d like to thank Haus of Gaga for being strong for me when I wasn’t, and the crew for making this short film during this pandemic without anyone getting sick. 

It’s been years since I felt so alive in my creativity to make together what we did with “911”. Thank you BloodPop for taking a leap of faith with me to produce a record that hides in nothing but the truth. Finally, thank you little monsters. I’m awake now, I can see you, I can feel you, thank you for believing in me when I was very afraid. Something that was once my real-life everyday is now a film, a true story that is now the past and not the present. It’s the poetry of pain." she added.
