Check out the highly anticipated clip for “Yoü and I”, which premiered on Lady Gaga’s Youtube channel Tuesday afternoon, shortly following the leak of some video stills. The music video will make it’s television debut Thursday at 7:49pm ET on MTV. Following the premiere, Lady Gaga will answer fan questions live from New York and make a surprise announcement. Check out what the critics have to say about the video:
Gaga is back in form, meaning we’re treated to all manner of rococo costumes, bizarre allusions, and Greaser cross-dressing in the six-minute video. — New York Mag
Though there aren’t any intergalactic fireworks or cameos by legendary saxophonists, the video for “Yoü and I” feels like the strongest and most striking of any of the clips from Born This Way. — Entertainment Weekly
Just as the song filters country and rock sounds through the filter of Gaga’s oddball disco queen aesthetic, the best moments of the video put a distinctly Gaga-ish spin on the iconography of Americana and traditional love stories. — Rolling Stone
The Little Monster Honesty Box is open once again so that Little Monsters everywhere can help keep unofficial streams of the “Yoü and I” video from circulating. Please e-mail MonsterMail@LadyGaga.com to report any second hand streams that are not on Gaga’s LadyGagaOfficial account, or her VEVO account.
