Most casual music fans would like to forget Lady Gaga released another not-so-good album “Artpop” last year. However, one of the only decent songs on the project was the freaky song “Do What U Want” featuring R. Kelly. After the duo performed the track at last year’s American Music Awards, Gaga’s fans held their breath for the video that never came. We finally have found out why and have a brief clip from the scrapped visual.
According to reports, the reason why the video was shelved had more to do with Lady Gaga’s collaborators than her. The song is a duet with R. Kelly, a man accused of sexual assault on a minor teenager, and it was directed by famed photographer Terry Richardson who is currently embroiled in a world of drama due to being accused of sexual assault by several different models. At the time of the video’s planned release, Gag’s people got cold feet due to all of the mess surrounding Kelly and Richardson because the “Do What U want” video is hypersexualized.
In the clip, Lady Gaga is laying on an operating table nude. R.Kelly is her doctor and reaches underneath the sheet Gaga is covered with and asks, “How does that feel?” Gaga responds by moaning with delight. R. Kelly then says, “Sounds like the medicine is starting to kick in.”
Then we cut to a wild and raunchy scene where scantily clad nurses are gyrating and dancing over Lady Gaga’s body. Another scene shows the pop star completely nude rolling around in newspapers. Terry Richardson can be seen in the video photographing Lady Gaga against a background of tabloids. A source told Page Six, “Gaga had a video directed by an alleged sexual predator, starring another sexual predator. With the theme, ‘I’m going to do whatever I want with your body’? It was s literally an ad for rape.”
Take a look at the 30 second snippet below. Would you have been upset about all of the sex being displayed in the video considering their reason for not releasing it?
