Lady Gaga’s New Lavish “911” Video from “Chromatica”: Come for the Music, Stay for the Wild Costumes


Lady Gaga’s album, “Chromatica,” has been problematic. The duet with Ariana Grande, “Rain on Me,” was a hit. But otherwise the album hasn’t been worked much at radio, and Gaga has mostly taken the summer off since its release.
