Lady Gaga’s weirdly rapey ‘Do What U Want’ video has thankfully been scrapped

I’m only vaguely shocked that Lady Gaga – someone who purports to be ingelligent, mindful and outspoken about equality and injustice in life thought it was a good idea to make her video for ‘Do What U Want’ – which features notorious (unconvicted) child molester R. Kelly, by the way – some big rape fest. So much so that the video has been scrapped, thank God. Oh, and did we mention that the vid was directed by Terry Richardson? #Feminism!

From Page Six:

The raunchy video starring Gaga and Kelly was directed by controversial photographer Terry Richardson and depicts racy scenes between the singers. Its release would have coincided with heated attention focused on scandals involving both Richardson and Kelly.

According to our source, Kelly plays a doctor in the video, with Gaga acting as his patient in scenes that riff on her real-life hip injury last year.

Gaga asks Kelly, “Will I ever be able to walk again?” The singer replies, “Yes, if you let me do whatever I want with your body.” The not-so-good doctor then adds, “I’m putting you under, and when you wake up, you’re going to be pregnant.” Alrighty, then!

A source told us, “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 literally an ad for rape.” Reps for Gaga and Richardson didn’t comment. Kelly’s rep didn’t get back to us.

Wow. This is in such colossally bad taste that for once, I am actually rendered pretty speechless. I also find it pretty difficult to have serious discourse with/about someone whose head is obviously so far up her own ass that she can’t see the light of day. Whatever sexual fantasies you have, play them out in private – especially if they are potentially triggering/disrespectful to all of those who have been sexually assaulted/violated… and yes, there are millions. The thing is, this video didn’t just have ONE thing wrong with it. It had EVERYTHING wrong with it. I’ve always said that celebrities have no responsibility to be role models, and I don’t believe Gaga does, either. However, I do believe celebrities – and the rest of us – have a responsibility to be decent human beings. Big fail on this one.

Here’s a clip, if you can be bothered. If I have to see Gaga rolling around on a floor and masturbating one more time in my life, I swear to God…

Photos: Lady Gaga on her way to perform at Frank Sinatra High School in NYC

Lady Gaga met up with her old pal Tony Bennett to perform a few songs at Frank Sinatra High School in New York City on Monday, and the outfit she chose to leave the house in was… interesting, to say the least. She’s still rocking that hot mess of a black wig, as well as the WAY overdrawn eyebrows. It’s certainly a whole lot of look, that’s for sure.

Here’s a clip of her performance. She also apparently gave a masterclass to students at the school, but oddly, there doesn’t seem to be anyone in the audience here? I’m sure this is just soundcheck.

And here are some more photos of this delightful “outfit”, just because I know one can never be enough.

Lady Gaga’s voice was stolen by a cartoon villain

Lady Gaga is currently on the ARTPOP tour and was due to perform in Seattle, Washington last night… but then Ursula, the cartoon villain from The Little Mermaid, came and stole her voice, meaning she had to cancel the show. In actuality, she apparently has bronchitis, but I guess she thought it was cute to bring Disney characters into it.

In any case, I suppose it’s comforting that she’s taking some time off to heal rather than going on stage and lip syncing just to get through it. She frowns on such things, so at least she’s staying true to her word!

Lady Gaga got something right, for once

Lady Gaga Live at Roseland - Arrival - April 7, 2014

Lady Gaga rarely says anything that a) makes sense or b) that I agree with, but she has a point here. Even though it is a bit self-congratulatory, as all things are coming from her mouth, she said in a new interview with Extra that she always sings live and hates when artists don’t:

“I don’t think it’s cool to lip sync. I’m not judging if people do because it’s everybody’s own style of what they decided to be, the type of artist they will be, but I think if you pay money for a ticket to see a show the artist should fucking have some pipes and sing their records for you.”

Yeah, that’s true, but… frankly, lots of artists have layered vocals, and lots of artists have a lot of physical stuff to do (dancing, singing, climbing, etc) in which those layers help. And also, I’d rather listen to a slightly polished, recorded version of Britney Spears than her actual voice, for example. That’s just not good for anyone.

I do get the point of what she’s saying, though – there’s no reason an artist shouldn’t be singing live at their LIVE SHOWS. It’s a bit ridiculous, but it is really difficult to kill your voice like that night after night, so I have to give her credit for that.

Lady Gaga goes hiking in high heels, because of course

Lady Gaga is ridiculous to the point of being a bit farcical at this point – especially since she takes herself so seriously with it all. If she at least knew she was ridiculous and was doing it purposely for fun rather than because she’s an ~artist~ who is so above the rest of the world, she’d be slightly more enjoyable. At this point, however, I just can’t with her.

That’s why it’s not at all surprising – and totally eyeroll-inducing – to know that Gaga goes for hikes with boyfriend Taylor Kinney wearing high heels. As you do.

From Glamour:

GLAMOUR: And if Gaga comes back home with you, what do you guys do with that time?
TK: We’ll hike together. I’m always giving her flak, like, “Babe, you can’t wear your heels when we’re hiking.” We’ve been painting a bunch lately too.
GLAMOUR: What do you paint?
TK: I can’t tell you—I’ll have to leave it up to the imagination. There’s a lot of laughing. I think that’s the basis of a healthy relationship. We laugh a lot.
GLAMOUR: I love that. You guys are under such a spotlight—how do you deal with it?
TK: I have no desire to talk about rumors. But I think we just complement each other. I’m proud of her, and I’d like to believe she’s proud of me. We’re kindred spirits.

It’s nice that they’re happy together and all of that – like I’ve said before, it’d be interesting to see what she’s like in an actual relationship and not with all the bullshit she puts on for the public eye. Still… high heels while hiking? Girl, no.

Lady Gaga is feeling a bit jealous of Katy Perry, it seems…

Katy Perry is out on the road killing it with her Prismatic World Tour at the moment, and while fans are loving it and Katy is set to rake in millions from the dates, there’s one person out there who isn’t so thrilled with her success: Lady Gaga. Poor Mother Monster has been sipping on the haterade, apparently, and tweeted out a catty remark basically implying that Katy had copied off her looks with some of her own stage props.

Yes, because Gaga has a copyright on green hair and anyone else who has it is copying off her. Same with horses – she’s the first and only person to ever use a horse in her act (which – oh wait, she didn’t even use it in an act, she rode it to an awards show), so how DARE you copy!

Some people are so pressed. Gaga needs to chill out and maybe reassess reality a bit. We’re sorry ARTPOP flopped, girl, but it’s not that serious.
