In 2017, world's largest all-premium music video provider VEVO, decided to release a new section in their channel called 'Footnotes', featuring some artists like Khalid, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, and Shawn Mendes, to explain some background details as the artist's intention and director's vision in their music videos.
Today, through Lady Gaga's official Youtube channel, the episode for '911' Footnotes has been released revealing details from the concept and explaining the references throughout the video. ''I will say that Gaga gave me free reign in both versions to execute this idea exactly as I saw fit which let me know she trusted me and this partnership. The final version was cut in less than a day and Gaga didn't change any single frame.'' said Tarsem Singh, director.
