Lady Gaga Talks the Meaning of '911' Video & The Song Itself

Lady Gaga is opening up about the meaning of her song “911″ and the new music video that she just released.

In the video, the 34-year-old singer wakes up in the desert in a psychedelic world and we later find out that she was hallucinating the entire time. At the end of the song, Gaga snaps back into reality after being involved in a serious accident and cries out that she forgot her pills.

Gaga explained on her Instagram account, “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.”

Gaga also thanked her team and said, “It’s been years since I felt so alive in my creativity to make together what we did with ’911.’”

“Thank you little monsters,” she said. “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.”

Back in May when the song was released, Gaga opened up about the meaning of the song’s lyrics.

“I wrote a song on Chromatica called ’911,’ and it’s 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,” Gaga said in the interview with Apple Music.

“I can’t see me cry / Can’t see me cry ever again,” Gaga sings in the song, seemingly referencing the side effects from the medication. A known side effect is decreased emotional responses, which is why she wouldn’t be able to notice her sadness.
