Lady GaGa Gives Update on "Do What U Want" Video; Vents 'Artpop' Frustration
Back in December, Lady GaGa had revealed that a music video for her R. Kelly-featuring song "Do What U Want" is being made and Terry Richardson has been hired to direct it. But, despite several weeks having passed by, no news regarding its official release was conveyed to the media.
The Mother Monster finally explained this holdup on Sunday in a message published on littlemonsters.com. "It is late because, just like with the 'Applause' video unfortunately, I was given a week to plan and execute it," she wrote. "It is very devastating for someone like me, I devote every moment of my life to creating fantasies for you. All my most successful videos were planned over a period of time when I was rested and my creativity was honored."
The 27-year-old pop superstar then talked about how some people let her down and are only interested in profiting at her expense.
"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," the "Born This Way" songstress added. "Millions of dollars are not enough for some people. They want billions. Then they need trillions. I was not enough for some people. They wanted more."
GaGa's third studio album "Artpop" – which she released in last November – failed to live up to her and Interscope Records' expectations. Some reports even claim that it's mediocre sales end up costing as much as $25 million to Interscope. But the singer claims that the album will flourish in upcoming months as those responsible for its poor results have now been replaced.
"The next few months of 'ARTPOP' will truly be its beginning," she said. "Because those who did not care about 'ARTPOP''s success are now gone, and the dreams I have been planning can now come to fruition. I never thought after all the years of hard work that those I called friends and partners would ever care so little at a time I needed them the most. Give me a chance to show you the meaning of seeing art all around you."
