Pop star Lady Gaga released a short film for her newest single "G.U.Y." on Saturday, Mar. 22 via Twitter. After months of uncertainty over the third single release from the ARTPOP album, Gaga returns with a lengthy music video for the Zedd-produced track.
Lady Gaga opened the ARTPOP album era with lead single "Applause" back in August and soon followed it up with "Do What U Want" featuring R. Kelly. A music video for the latter directed by Terry Richardson was supposed to drop in December but it remains unreleased so far. "G.U.Y." was recently announced as the third single from ARTPOP. Over stunning electronic production by Zedd, Gaga sings, "Let me be the girl under you that makes you cry / I wanna be that guy, g.u.y." She takes control in the bedroom on arguably one of the best songs from ARTPOP.
The "G.U.Y." short film opens with a flock of suited men taking Gaga's money and running off as she is left behind like a wounded phoenix. The titular track from ARTPOP plays as she struggles to get on her feet. Gaga makes her way to Hearst Castle and experiences a full revival to the song "Venus". Now rejuvenated and with "G.U.Y." on deck, she runs the castle with hunky men at her beck and call, a few cast members of "The Real Housewives" as her band, and Andy Cohen from "Watch What Happens Live" as Zeus. When Gaga is not busting a move, the singer is bent on creating the perfect man using D.N.A. from Michael Jackson, Jesus and Ghandi. Extravagant like the past video for "Paparazzi", the lengthy "G.U.Y." clip is a return to form for "Gaga" as she re-centers her art on an engaging storyline that is a real treat on the eyes.
Lady Gaga's album ARTPOP was released in November of last year and peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's album chart.
