Tom Cruise recently revealed to James Corden on The Late Late Present that he and Hans Zimmer, one of many composers for the upcoming Prime Gun sequel, had been fighting the music for the movie when Girl Gaga approached them each with “Maintain My Hand.” “There was only a sound and one thing we had been in search of and it simply wasn’t proper,” he mentioned. “She offered her tune to us and it simply opened up the entire film.”
It’s straightforward to see why. On Friday, Gaga launched the music video for her new tune, a robust rock ballad that completely walks the road between fashionable music and the ‘80s sound that might have been at house within the authentic film. The drama of the lyrics and guitar licks are intensified by the music video, which options clips from the 2 movies, depicting highly effective scenes just like the dying of Anthony Edwards’ Goose within the authentic film. However in between these pictures is Gaga, jamming on a piano, singing into the digicam, and strolling down an (airplane) runway.
Gaga’s seems to be within the video are clearly direct tributes to the movie. We first see her in pilot drag, sporting a white tank high with an aviator jacket on high. This isn’t simply any outdated costume, nonetheless, however the precise jacket Cruise wore within the authentic movie again in 1986. When the tune actually hits its climax, although, Gaga switches out the tank high beneath her jacket for a nude robe that explodes off the singer and into the wind. The costume was created by Ukranian designer, Lessja Verlingieri for her brand Lever Couture. Verlingieri has been working with Gaga and her trend director, Nicola Formichetti, since 2011, this dramatic robe is simply the newest of their collaborations.
Verlingieri revealed to Paper Journal that the costume was created from 200 yards of cloth, and was impressed by a parachute, in addition to different efficiency put on generally worn by pilots. She needed Gaga to appear to be she’d been misplaced within the desert for 20 years, with the costume representing “independence, bravery, and survival.”
"Nicola has been a supporter of my model because the early days and we now have collaborated on varied initiatives all through the final ten years," Verlingieri advised Paper. "He needed a costume that match the theme of the forthcoming Prime Gun sequel and I felt honored to step into his universe as soon as once more and create one thing distinctive and magical for Girl Gaga."
Whereas Gaga is safely on the bottom, in no want of an precise parachute, seeing this costume in motion, delivered to life by the wind and floating behind the singer in every in each route, we’re not solely satisfied it wouldn’t be sensible within the occasion of an precise emergency touchdown.
