Lady Gaga has won Best Female Video and Best Video with a Mesage at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. The video shows Lady Gaga as the Eternal Mother in space, birthing a new race that bears no prejudice, no judgment, but boundless freedom. At the same time, evil is being birthed. The dance sequence, shot in Brooklyn, New York, includes Rick Genest (Rico) as Zombie Boy. Lady Gaga refers to the Born This Way track as her “freedom song”. Imagery and lyrics focus on self empowerment and refer often to parts of the LGBT community.
