1[[quoteright:270:]]˛* The video for "Bad Romance". [[spoiler:It ends with Lady Gaga laying next to a charred corpse.]]˛** The parts of the video where you notice her eyes have been [[UncannyValley unsettlingly]] enlarged by CGI.˛* ''"Paparazzi"''. In the music video, she's knocked down from a balcony after a rather frightening fight. ''And that's just the beginning.''˛** The violently murdered model corpses that are shown in quick flashes, particularly the one wrapped in a bag with her limbs all broken, and the one hanging from the ceiling.˛* There's a reason they call it the [[ Monster Ball]].˛* The part in the "Telephone" video where her head moves... oddly.˛** Also from ''Telephone'', the mass poisoning.˛* The ''whole'' "[[ Alejandro]]" video.˛** Special mention for the final few seconds of the video, in which a slow close-up on Gaga's face rapidly distorts into a film-burn effect that stretches [[EyeScream her eyes into glowing white holes]] and [[GlasgowGrin her mouth into a huge spreading grin]].˛* Pictured here, the [[ official cover art]] for ''Born This Way.'' Apparently she's a half-motorcycle, half-human hybrid hailing from the UncannyValley˛* Some people find the skeletal/zombie makeup in "Born This Way" to be unsettling. ˛* From the ''Born This Way'' album: "Government Hooker" and "Bloody Mary" are a touch unsettling. The latter mainly because of the warped effects on her voice, not to mention the ''random screams.''˛* [[ The cover for "Bad Romance"]] is just incredibly creepy looking.˛* For a non-''Monster'' could even her metal yells in her live shows and calling her own fans ''motherfuckers'' and that she'll "kick their asses" and they better get their guns out" are very scary if you're not part of her ''Monster'' pack.˛* Three words: [[ Judas Goldfrapp Remix]].˛* Lady Gaga's [[UncannyValley head on a goose's body]] in the "Applause" music video.˛* Her video for "Do What U Want" was going to be this, featuring scenes of Gaga as a hospital patient being drugged by a doctor played by R.Kelly (who tells her [[DudeShesLikeInAComa she will "wake up pregnant" while fondling her]]), and featuring artwork by Terry Richardson, who has been accused ''multiple'' times of exploiting and raping his female models.˛* "Bloody Mary", especially the screams.˛%%* The fact that Gaga will be appearing on season 5 of ''Series/AmericanHorrorStory''.˛* The somber, brutally realistic music video for "Til It Happens To You" features several graphic depictions of rape occurring on a college campus.˛** Hell, the song itself! Never before has a rape survivor's story made the listener feel like it's happened to them before.˛* TheReveal in "911" [[spoiler:that the entire video was Gaga's [[AdventuresInComaland near-death induced hallucination]]. In the real world, she was involved in a bicycle-car accident, and the people in the video represent the paramedics, the other injured, and bystanders. Her screams of pain and terror when she is revived through defibrillation are disturbingly realistic.]] Bonus points for it being heavily foreshadowed throughout the video, meriting a RewatchBonus.
