Lady Gaga is all about the controversy, but even she has her limits.
Months after the controversy surrounding Mother Monster’s missing “Do What U Want” music video, the real reason she never released it is finally clear.
According to a new report from “Page Six,” the video was allegedly pulled because of the graphic nature of the video in conjunction with the inclusion of two of her collaborators.
The video’s director, Terry Richardson, has recently been accused of sexual misconduct by a number of models, while her duet partner R. Kelly also faced sexual assault suits back in the ‘90s.
Gaga played a patient of Kelly’s, who was playing a doctor, and the video reportedly had a not-so-stellar take on sexual consent.
“Gaga had a video directed by an alleged sexual predator, starring another [alleged] sexual predator,” a source alleged to “Page Six.” “With the theme, ‘I’m going to do whatever I want with your body’? It was literally an ad for rape.”
After the story broke, TMZ got ahold of a 30-second clip from the “Do What U Want” video. Gaga has not yet publicly commented on the story.
