Gaga once again invites us into the world of Chromatica by means of a desert, awakening on a sandy white beach, as the music builds to the song we know and love, 911.

In the short film, she is taken to an adobe house, greeted by obscure characters that are... For lack of a better word... hard to interpret. As one person is seen slamming their head against a pillow, others are flying, all the while singing along to the catchy hooky, "I can't see me cry /Can't see me cry, ever again (ooh) / I can't see me cry / Can't see me cry this is the end (ooh)." Meanwhile, Gaga happily serves multiple wardrobe changes, beautiful blue hairstyles, and makeup, distracting us from the fact the story is about to take a sharp turn, as she is sentenced to death.

Early May the singer broke down the meaning behind "911" on Apple Music. Lady Gaga explained, "[911 is] about an antipsychotic that I take. And it’s because I can’t always control things that my brain does. I know that. And I have to take medication to stop the process that occurs." After watching, the out-of-control visuals perfectly communicate what it's like to feel outside of your body. See the shocking twist to the film and learn more about the project, in Gaga's word, below.
