Song: John Wayne Album: Joanne Release Date: February 8th, 2017
After her Super Bowl Halftime Show performance, Lady Gaga’s digital sales rose over 1000% and she announced her Joanne World Tour. Continuing her firestorm of promotion, Lady Gaga released the music video to her track “John Wayne”, from the “Joanne” album, as an Apple Music exclusive.
Directed by Jonas Akerlund (who previously directed her “Paparazzi” and “Telephone” music videos), “John Wayne” is a neon-lit fast-paced video continuing from the “Million Reasons” music video with iconic fashion.
For her final dance scene of the video, Lady Gaga changes into a fully custom look with a wig similar to her early "The Fame" looks, that made my heart explode!
Lady Gaga's bustier top and shorts are both custom pieces from the Colorado-based company ROMEO. Lady Gaga's custom lace-up shorts do not have a similar version available for purchase. But Lady Gaga's top is available in different colors!
Lady Gaga's custom version of ROMEO's cowboy boot bustier, which can also be worn as a girdle, is actually made using vintage and thrifted cowboy boots that are cleaned, treated, and hand-painted by ROMEO. The original ROMEO bustier in blue with black and white painting is available for $365 here.
Bonus: Lady Gaga starts the dance scene with a fur throw with "GAGA" written across in a contrasting white color. Her faux-fur throw is custom from designer Nicolas Wirth who is a young designer who has previously worked for the Alexander McQueen fashion house.
The “John Wayne” music video is now also available on Lady Gaga’s VEVO. Watch it through YouTube
