Unearthed Lady Gaga, R Kelly Video Allegedly Condones Sexual Assault

A new video clip has surfaced online allegedly containing content from Lady Gaga and R Kelly's scrapped 'Do What U Want' music video. The second single to be released from Gaga's latest album, ARTPOP, 'Do What U Want' has an official video that that is shot very differently to the scenes seen in the new clip.

The song's lyrics express themes of sexual submissiveness, which has been alluded to in several live performances involving the pop star and the R&B singer, but never as explicitly as seen in the Terry Richardson-directed video, which has been leaked by TMZ.

The short excerpt posted on the Gaga Daily Facebook page begins with Gaga on a hospital trolly moaning as R Kelly's hand moves around under her sheet. "Sounds like that medicine's starting to kick in," he says. When then see Gaga coverting nude amongst newspaper gossip headlines related to her personal life and career in a scene soundtracked by 'Do What U Want.'

Cut back to the hospital scene and an unconscious Gaga is surrounded by scantily clad nurses who are grinding on her and moving her limbs around as they party. She then appears posing in a dress made from tabloid pages whilst Terry Richardson takes shots like a pap.


The video was set for release in December 2013 via BitTorrent but was cancelled due to unknown circumstances. However, it has been speculated by TMZ that the whole vid was pulled due to concerns of a backlash due to R Kelly's past trial for child pornography as well as allegations made by several models that Richardson harassed and sexually assaulted them - claims the photographer has denied.

A source speaking to Page Six decried Richardson's artistic efforts, saying "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."

In January, Gaga posted an angry message on her website claiming that she had been betrayed by certain individuals: "Those who have betrayed me gravely mismanaged my time and health and left me on my own to damage control any problems that ensued as a result."

"I was not enough for some people. They wanted more," she added.
