Lady Gaga’s video for “You and I” has leaked early, courtesy of blogger Perez Hilton, and shows the musician not only making out with a male version of herself, but it also depicts her in the mermaid costume that sparked controversy with Bette Midler last month over Bette being the original mermaid songstress.
After the low-key approach to her previous video, “Edge of Glory,” Gaga returns to the highly produced mini movie format that has made so many of her earlier videos such a visual treat.
The early leak sunk Mother Monster’s plans to release the video on Thursday as her 1000th tweet when it showed up earlier today. However, Gaga isn’t easily upstaged. When the songstress got wind that her video had begun to sail through cyberspace ahead of schedule she quickly sent out a series of tweets reading, “Fuck,” “Thurs,” and “Day” followed by her “1000th” tweet containing the link to her new video.
