Lady Gaga's unreleased 'Do What U Want' video leaks


Last October, Lady Gaga’s duet with R. Kelly, “Do What U Want,” was released as Artpop‘s second single. The track began receiving the full promotional push, including a live performance alongside Kelly on Saturday Night Live. But in mid-December, the Village Voice published an interview with veteran Chicago music journalist Jim DeRogatis that assembled 15 years of research into allegations of Kelly’s history of assaulting young women into a damning portrait of a sexual predator.

Wisely, Gaga and Interscope stopped the single campaign almost immediately, and a video for the song that had already been shot was shelved. But on Thursday, TMZ posted a 33-second clip of the “Do What U Want” video, and it’s clear why Gaga’s camp wanted to keep it under wraps.

Riffing on Gaga’s hip surgery last year, the video opens with her on an operating table being felt up by Kelly, who then sedates her and messes around with her unconscious body with help from a team of scantily clad nurses. In another sequence Richardson’s shown taking photos of a nude Gaga simulating sexual acts on a pile of tabloids. A source who spoke to Page Six about the video calls it “literally an ad for rape.”

This week, the video’s director, Terry Richardson, has been in the news for his own history of alleged sexual assault. Rumors that Richardson routinely made unwanted advances toward his models, along with accusations from models who claim that he pressured them into sexual activity, have been swirling around the fashion world and blogosphere for years, and a profile in the current issue of New York magazine, while largely sympathetic to Richardson, has brought them to the attention of a much larger audience.

Gaga distanced herself from Kelly immediately following the Village Voice piece, and has kept away in the months since. Richardson has been a closer collaborator with her than Kelly was—he’s become something like her official photographer, and he’s published an entire book of photos he’s taken of her. Gaga was allegedly unaware of the claims that have been made against Richardson in the past.

Miley Cyrus beats One Direction's most-viewed record


Oh, it’s on.

In June, Miley Cyrus’s Gaga-on-acid video for “We Can’t Stop” racked up 10.7 million views in just 24 hours, giving it more play in a single day than any other video in Vevo history. One month later, British boy band One Direction rudely wrested away Miley’s crown (and, perhaps, her skull made of french fries) when their own video for “Best Song Ever” won 10.9 million views in one day.

Now, though, things have come full circle, thanks to Miley’s boobs newest surreal mini-movie.


Lady Gaga hops onto documentary bandwagon with photographer Terry Richardson

Music docs: they’re so hot right now! Perhaps that’s why Lady Gaga gave all her Little Monsters a very special Christmas present yesterday by announcing that her “Cake” collaborator Terry Richardson is making a film documenting Gaga’s life, as well as “the creation of ARTPOP” — Gaga’s upcoming album — and the artist’s devoted fanbase.


Half-naked Lady Gaga rolls around in frosting for 'Cake' teaser: Watch it here

Whatever foods you plan on gorging on this week, it’s got nothing on what Lady Gaga’s been getting into.

Mother Monster has released yet another teaser clip for her upcoming, Terry Richardson-shot “Cake” video, and this one’s even wilder than the last. Stripped down to her skivvies, Gaga hits the floor and wallows in a large mess of cake, suggestively licking and grinding into the innocent frosting. And like the previous teaser, it features a quick shot of the star getting jiggy with it in a hot tub.

Take a look at the vaguely NSFW (or not safe for your parent’s house, if that’s the case) teaser in the video below:


Lady Gaga dances around in her underwear for 'Cake' video: Watch the teaser here

As a wise woman named Rihanna once said, “Cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake.”

Lady Gaga teamed up with downtown photographer-filmmaker Terry Richardson to shoot the video for “Cake,” her rap collaboration with DJ White Shadow.

The new clip shows Gaga in a state of undress pretty common among Richardson subjects — underwear-clad, in heels, and momentarily in a bathtub. The singer, whose album ARTPOP is expected to hit streets sometime next year, shows off some of her new dance moves and rap skills for the clip, which her YouTube pages says was shot in São Paolo, Brazil.
