The Video Lady Gaga Didn't Want Anyone To See
A clip of a music video reportedly scrapped by Lady Gaga because its sexual content was deemed too controversial has been leaked online.
The Do What You Want Video stars the singer alongside R Kelly, who plays the role of a doctor who "does what he wants" with her while she is passed out.
The clip, published on TMZ, also shows Gaga writhing around naked. It has been criticised for glamorising rape.
The video was shot at the end of last year and was due for release in December but Gaga blamed the video's delays on people who "gravely mismanaged [her] time and health".
But now it is being reported that she may have been concerned about the reaction to her collaborating with Kelly, who has been the subject of allegations of assaults against minors.
The video was also directed by infamous photographer Terry Richardson, who has been accused of coercing models into sexual activity. He denies any inappropriate activity.
The song Do What You Want was the second single from Gaga's Artpop album, which reached number one in the UK.
Gaga is known for her provocative style and has a dedicated following of fans but has seen a dip in popularity in recent months.
