Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga's Mother Cried Over Video Stunts

Lady Gaga's mother cried when she refused to use a stunt double in her new music video.

The eccentric singer enjoyed "exploding" cars in the promo for single 'Marry the Night' but her parents Joseph and Cynthia, who were on set, were unhappy with her decision to risk her safety for her art.

She said in an interview with online music channel VEVO: "We really lit the cars on fire, we really exploded them. My dad and my mom were in a car somewhere and my mum was like crying and so upset because I didn't want to use a stunt double."

"I never use doubles for anything. So we filmed this shot of the explosion and I remember thinking back then if they told me I could stand 15 feet away from a car while it explodes in a music video, I wouldn't have flinched.

"So don't flinch now. I just stood there. If you flinch after all that - it's like taking a sip of water when you're ten feet from the end of a marathon. What a jackass."

Despite her mother's tears, Gaga's father understood her vision for the 14-minute video and praised how "raw" the finished clip was.

She told KIIS-FM DJ Ryan Seacrest: "My dad called me and he was like, 'That was so raw, and the angles that you chose.' My dad really understands me. So he said he loved how linear it was in the beginning, and then in the middle it was chaotic and at the end it was graphic, but that it wasn't really."
