FADE IN:

 

INT. BEDROOM – NIGHT

SERIES OF SHOTS:

Extreme close-up , a small open box of tissues.

Extreme close-up, Gaga self moistens her lips.

The bedroom door shuts and locks.

Extreme close-up , the dial at the bottom of Gaga’s toy, vibrating stronger and stronger as she turns it to full capacity.

The shots repeat themselves in a quick barrage as the ELECTRONIC A delivers us into the incoming BEAT.

And as that BASS KICKS IN we track a queen-sized bed tapestried in hanging lace and start to push in through the draped layers of it as the color of cherry red helps set the mood while synchronized to the MUSIC.

We come to Lady Gaga, sitting up in bed amongst the lace and bedding while wearing a party dress that clashes the past four decades together. (As she SINGS with all that fabric surrounding her, reminiscent of Madonna’s Like a Virgin)

 

LYRICS

(Lady Gaga singing,

her gaze falls left as camera

comes around to right side of bed

while her image DISSOLVES

into a new one of herself with each

of the ECHOED versus)

Your love

is nothing I can’t fight

 

She subtly falls back a bit with another turn away, camera coming back around to other side of bed on LYRICS and DISSOLVES.

 

LYRICS

(Lady Gaga singing)

Can’t sleep

with the man who dims my shine

 

And comes to rest right in time for her to look up at it, her nightstand with the tissues and bedroom door in background.

 

LYRICS

(Lady Gaga singing)

I’m in the bedroom

with tissues and when

I know you’re outside

Banging

but I won’t let you win

 

Camera heads back to the foot of the bed, Gaga SINGING directly to it.

 

LYRICS

(Lady Gaga singing)

‘Cause it’s a hard life

with love in the world

and I’m a hard girl

Loving me is like chewing on pearls

 

In this wide shot of the bed/Gaga a really quick flick of an image of her standing at the side of the bed JumpCuts from right to left to right.

 

LYRICS

(Lady Gaga singing)

Loving me is like chewing on pearls

 

Covering her from different angles as she SINGS the CHORUS while standing atop the mattress as the rotating cherry lights illuminate her and the bed.

 

LYRICS

(Lady Gaga singing)

You’ve got me wondering

why I

I like it rough I

I like it rough I

I like it rough (X2)

 

Extreme close-up, Gaga’s fingers embrace the dial of her toy and its base.

 

LYRICS

(Lady Gaga singing)

Won’t go

without my fix tonight

 

Extreme close-up, her lips SINGING.

 

LYRICS

(Lady Gaga singing)

It’s a little too rough

 

Extreme close-up, in silver eyeliner, her eyes close, then reopen.

 

LYRICS

Prom girl

wipes her tears

with silver lines

 

Extreme close-up, Gaga’s lips SINGING.

 

LYRICS

(Lady Gaga singing)

and she can’t get enough

 

From different angles (mostly that of close-ups) Lady Gaga starts to get into her self-fixin’… (A tilt of the head here, a close of the eyes there, as the sensors/sensations begin!)

 

LYRICS

(Lady Gaga singing)

I’m in the bedroom

with tissues and when

I know you’re outside banging

then I won’t let you when

‘Cause it’s a hard life

with love in the world

and I’m a hard girl

Loving me is like

straightening curls

 

In wide, the return of the really quick flicker of her image as it JumpCuts around the bed.

 

 

LYRICS

(Lady Gaga singing)

Straightening curls

 

Back atop the mattress as she PERFORMS the routine of the CHORUS, with second go round of it bringing in her flickering image.

 

LYRICS

(Lady Gaga singing)

You’ve got me wondering

why I

I like it rough I

I like it rough I

I like it rough (X2)

 

The flickering version of Gaga is now the main image (no longer flickering) as she does a little sexy-shuffle-steppin’ at the foot of the bed, looking all shiny and innocent as she plays with her hair, now in curls.

 

LYRICS

(Lady Gaga singing)

I’m shiny and I know it

don’t know why you wanna blow it

Need a man who likes it rough

Likes it rough

Likes it rough (X2)

 

The shiny innocent version starts to flicker away/JumpCut around the bed as Gaga’s first image on the bed flickers back into being.

 

LYRICS

(Lady Gaga singing)

Is it because you don’t mean it?

Or because I don’t feel it?

Yes it’s rough (X2)

 

As at the beginning of the video we once again go through the series of quick shots…

And now cover Gaga with a variety of suggestive shots as she provides her own ecstasy while laying atop that mattress. (Involuntary head tilt, clinching a fist full of bedsheets, a bite of the lower lip, arching of the back, etc.)

LYRICS

(Lady Gaga singing)

You’ve got me wondering

why I

I like it rough I

I like it rough I

I like it rough (X4)

 

Just as we entered we slowly fall back through all that laced tapestry to a wide shot of the bed until…
