Clip, likely for ‘You And I,’ is about how ‘when you’re away from someone you love, it’s torture,’ Gaga says.

Lady Gaga is giving her little monsters some juicy details about her forthcoming music video, which she just shot in Nebraska. While she never confirms or denies that the video is for her track “You And I,” reading between the lines gives it all away.
“Well, I shot my new music video here,” she dished to Omaha radio station 94.1, hearing the track on the radio for the first time. “I’ve got to tell you, I don’t think there’s anything hotter than being in a cornfield in Nebraska.
“It was so sweet, and I looked out and it’s so beautiful, that tall corn. … Then all of a sudden you start to see these monsters pop up. I love this place so much, and it really comes from a genuine place. The person who I wrote this song about has been my buddy and my best friend since I was 19 years old, and he’s from here,” she added of her pal Luc Carl. “And I love this state so much.”
While not revealing whether a previously promised mermaid will make a cameo, she did share quite a lot about the plot for the video.
“Well, it was actually kind of perfect the way it worked out ’cause the premise of the video is that I’ve walked all the way from New York City to Nebraska to get him back,” she said. “I’m walking with no luggage and no nothing and it’s just me and my ankles are bleeding a little bit and there’s grass stuck in my shoes and I’ve got this outfit on and it’s real sort of New York clothing and I’m sprinting.
“And the idea that when you’re away from someone you love, it’s torture,” she continued. “I knew I wanted the video to be about me sprinting back and walking hundreds of thousands of miles to get him back.”
