The video is a little less flashy than her previous ones. But the performer’s flare for the theatric is ever so present; and the quality of the song and its meaning (GaGa wrote the song about the death of her grandfather and the final moments she was able to spend with him prior to his death) shine through. This week, Born This Way finally fell from its #1 spot at the throne atop of the Billboard Albums Chart. It fell to #2 behind Adele’s new release 21. To date, Lady GaGa has sold over 1.5 million copies of Born This Way and the album has spawned 4 top-10 hits, with the title single (“Born This Way”) remaining in the #1 spot for a whopping 6 weeks! Born This Way is available at retail outlets nationwide and for digital download through iTunes from Interscope Records. Take a look at the video for “Edge of Glory” through VEVO below:
