What Is Going On With Lady Gaga’s “Do What U Want?”

Whether or not you think that ARTPOP was one of the highlights of 2013 or one of its disappointments, everyone has to agree that something very strange is going on with Lady Gaga’s second single off the album, “Do What U Want.” Not only has the Terry Richardson-directed music video been delayed, but Gaga released a new version of the single featuring that replaced R. Kelly’s vocals with Christina Aguilera’s. Is it all because of behind-the-scenes creative concerns or is Gaga distancing herself from R. Kelly? What’s true? What’s false? What is happening in the land of Gaga?!?!?

Lady Gaga originally released “Do Want U Want” as a single back on October 21, a few weeks before ARTPOP hit the shelves. Early critical response to the song was much stronger than what was written about “Applause,” which led Gaga and Kellz to promote the single with some interesting sex push ups on Saturday Night Live, which helped take the track all the way to #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 list.
