Lady Gaga is still doing her part to make mermaids the next big thing in mythological creature trends. Though she went with a lo-fi, ’80s-esque video for “The Edge of Glory” instead of her rumored “fishy” theme, there’s a chance she could go under the sea for a different clip.
“The relation of the video to my real life, as well as to my dream of the future, is really what makes it so special,” she said on the show. “Part of what Born This Way is all about is choosing to live halfway between reality and fantasy at all times, and how anyone can do that. So this video really, really challenges that idea and also celebrates it. And it’s very exciting.
“I will also say that Yuyi is in incubation, for anyone who knows what that means,” she added, referring to the name she’s given to her mermaid alter ego that she first unveiled during her performance for France’s “Le Grand Journal” in June. “Yuyi may just be born in the next video.”
Gaga teased that her next single would surprise fans during a Twitter Q&A last week, leading to many a guessing game and wish list.
“I don’t want to ruin the surprise! It’s very unexpected. Working on the video now,” she said. “Next single coming in a bit.”
A rep for Gaga has not responded to MTV News’ request for comment regarding the next single.
