Singer Lady Gaga is ready to kick a storm with the video of her new track Alejandro, where she is dressed as a nun in red PVC habit.
The 24-year-old singer, famous for her outrageous sartorial choices and antics onstage, is seen cavorting with a collection of semi-naked men in the nine-minute video.
In the raunchy shots, the singer risks the wrath of the Catholic Church as she is seen swallowing rosary beads while dressed as a nun in a red PVC habit, tying a lover to a bed and experimenting with bondage, the Daily Mail reported.
Fans clamouring for the first glimpse of the much-hyped video, directed by fashion photographer Steven Klein, crashed the site within minutes of its launch.
"She likes epics. It fits her personality. We combined dance, narrative and attributes of surrealism. The process was to express Lady Gaga's desire to reveal her heart and bear her soul," said Klein in an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine.
Gaga, who plays tribute to her gay fans is out to shock with the video, is also seen wearing an updated version of Madonna's cone bra which doubles up as guns.
The singer recently said that the single was "a celebration of my love and appreciation for the gay community. My admiration of their bravery and their love for one another and their courage in their relationships. It's something I have yet to nail on the head with a man."
The single is the third track from her best selling album Fame Monster.
