"This short film is very personal to me, my experience with mental health and the way reality and dreams can interconnect to form heroes within us and all around us," the 34-year-old pop star wrote.

"I'd like to thank my director/filmmaker Tarsem for sharing a 25 year old idea he had with me because my life story spoke so much to him," she added.





"I'd like to thank Haus of Gaga for being strong for me when I wasn't, and the crew for making this short film safely during this pandemic without anyone getting sick. It's been years since I felt so alive in my creativity to make together what we did with '911.'"

Gaga concluded by expressing gratitude toward her fans: "Thank you for believing in me when I was very afraid. Something that was once my real life everyday is now a film, a true story that is now the past and not the present. It's the poetry of pain."

This short film is very personal to me, my experience with mental health and the way reality and dreams can interconnect to form heroes within us and all around us. I’d like to thank my director/filmmaker Tarsem for sharing a 25 year old idea he had with me because my life story spoke so much to him. I’d like to thank Haus of Gaga for being strong for me when I wasn’t, and the crew for making this short film safely during this pandemic without anyone getting sick. It’s been years since I felt so alive in my creativity to make together what we did with “911”. Thank you @Bloodpop for taking a leap of faith with me to produce a record that hides in nothing but the truth. Finally, thank you little monsters. I’m awake now, I can see you, I can feel you, thank you for believing in me when I was very afraid. Something that was once my real life everyday is now a film, a true story that is now the past and not the present. It’s the poetry of pain.

While dancing on the sand, she sings: "My biggest enemy is me, pop a 911." Gaga discovers herself strapped to an alter where she shouts out in torment. A guard then jabs at her chest.

Gaga awakens from what appears to be a dystopian dream. Paramedics tend to her body following a car crash.
