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.
After joining the cowboy on his horse, Lady Gaga is seen in another look to ride her own motorcycle. For her ride, Lady Gaga wears an edgy black bodysuit and matching black hat.
Lady Gaga's hat is of course another creation by Gladys Tamez Millinery who created the pink hat for Lady Gaga's "Joanne" album cover. Lady Gaga's hat is actually the same "Lady Bianca" hat worn on the album cover but this time is in black felt. The hat is available in black, "Joanne pink", and more as a limited edition for $680 here.
Lady Gaga's bodysuit is by Christian Cowan who Lady Gaga has worn previously (remember her beautiful full pink glitter suit during the ARTPOP era?). Cowan took to Instagram to express his gratitude to Lady Gaga and her stylist Brandon Maxwell who he credits as starting his career in fashion.
The bodysuit has not been released in any of Cowan's collections but can also be seen on the most recent episode of America's Next Top Model with additional large stones.
I have not yet identified Lady Gaga's black boots but I will update this post when I do!
The “John Wayne” music video is now also available on Lady Gaga’s VEVO. Watch it through YouTube
