Oh agreed, that Billboard shoot and 911 felt like fresh takes on what "Gaga" visuals can be like. The video especially felt forward not just because of the new approach to direction, but also because it revolved around exploring her current headspace rather than mining a certain punk-ish "classic" Gaga vibe from the past like so much of Chromatica did. This dynamic helped make Joanne so enjoyable. That era gets labeled as stripped back, but the looks were all consciously "done" and conceptualized from the ground up. The booty shorts + crop top was drag. But it was fresh and forward and exciting because it felt like an accurate expression of where she was at the time. I have no good idea about what she may do next musically and visually--and this sounds trite to say at this point about her--but the best thing she could do is something that feels beholden to nobody but her.
