Watch Lady Gaga’s “Million Reasons” Video

“Perfect Illusion” starts with Lady Gaga dancing on her own in the desert, and before long she’s jamming out with Mark Ronson, Bloodpop and Kevin Parker in the middle of a wild crowd. But the video ends with Gaga sprawled out on the ground, alone in the desert again. The “Million Reasons” video starts back up from there as part of a seamless narrative, with this half depicting the subsequent comedown.

After the desert freakout, Gaga gets picked up and taken to her next gig. What follows is a melancholy look at the star backstage getting makeup and hair intercut with footage of her in full Joanne regalia on an all-white soundstage (not unlike the footage from her Apple Music spot).
