Is John Wayne MV underrated?

Featured Posts

RudraCNG

Almost every week I read stuff like "Gaga hasn't released a good MV since G.U.Y." that make me think that, sadly, John Wayne is underappreciated. Yeah, it lacks a big budget and wasn't even promoted, and yet is one of her best videos.

First stroke of genius is how somehow it  mocks the whole MR video at the beginning. As if she knew nobody liked that video and she wanted to say "Hey, it wasn't THAT serious. I can make fun of myself".

In fact, the whole video is like a big parody of herself

However, its main point is the fact it has all the key ingredients to make a great LG video: 

Choreos

Several costume changes

Lots of CrazyGa moments

And last but not least, the Iconic 12-inch Gun Heels

Of course it's not Telephone part 2 but it somehow feels like that. So I can't understand why fans diminish it so much. IMO is one of the most epic and hilarious videos she has ever made.

No, both the song and the video are just mediocre.

I think it was her way of saying “I can still make videos with choreo, fashion, and camp. It’s just not what I feel the need to do right now.” 

But I do wish it got more promotion. If Gaga had performed John Wayne at the Super Bowl and then dropped this it would’ve been a hit tbh

I don't think it’s underrated but music video of Perfect Illusion is one of her best music videos so I don't agree with ”gaga hasn't released a good music video since GUY”:huntyga:

It lacks something. Just like G.U.Y. in a sense. It's just the way that it was shot I guess. It isn't it. Music videos have not been her priority recently, she's focused on the music itself

the video is fun but the scenes pass too fast

If you don’t have any shadows, you’re not standing in the light.
