Following her recent performance of “Million Reasons” at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Lady Gaga released her video for the Joanne song Wednesday (Dec. 14).
Picking up right where the “Perfect Illusion” music video left off, Gaga’s “Million Reasons” video illustrates a transformation from powerhouse Grammy-winner to her simplified Joanne alter-ego, accompanied by an emotional sisterhood of support and a guitar.
The video starts off with Mother Monster in the desert with a slew of black SUVs coming to her rescue to take her to her video shoot, where she prepares to sing in her signature pink ensemble.
Gaga is shown sitting at a vanity getting ready for her shoot as she finds a small box with a bow on it sitting in front of her. As she prepares to open it, the video cuts to different flashbacks — scattered between footage of Gaga singing with her guitar in what seems to be a white studio — showing her friends pouring out of the black SUVs, racing to her side as she starts to cry. Then, Gaga is seen opening the box, which reveals a rosary and a little note that read “Love you, sis.”
