Lady Gaga "Dope (YouTube Music Award version)" (Spike Jonze, Chris Milk, dir.)

Lady Gaga "Dope" - YouTube Music Awards version (Spike Jonze, Chris Milk, doc.)

There's not a director credit on this one. Instead, this in-character Lady Gaga performance is "documented" by Spike Jonze and Chris Milk. It's raw, bravely unstyled — yet, clearly "styled," if you know what I mean — and perhaps gunning to steal that up-close "real" emotional focus from Miley Cyrus.
