Video: Lady Gaga – ‘G.U.Y.’

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga goes big in the video for her latest single “G.U.Y. (Girl Under You).” After premiering a two-minute clip on “Dateline,” the Haus of Gaga has unveiled the seven-minute ARTPOP film.

The over-the-top visuals, directed by Gaga herself, were shot over six days at California’s famed Hearst Castle, which has not allowed anyone to film there since the 1960 movie Spartacus.

“The intention of the video was to create something that was a true sort of road map of my journey, being an artist, a pop singer, a creative person,” Gaga told “Access Hollywood.”

Look for avant-garde fashion (Gaga’s wings were made by Jim Henson Studios), synchronized swimmers, and cameos from Bravo’s Andy Cohen (Zeus) and “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” who play her accomplices.

“It’s interesting because in this video… the fashion and the psychotic sort of whimsy is all happening around me and it’s me almost like Alice in Wonderland going through my own rabbit hole in my brain and re-experiencing the past year of my life,” explained Gaga.

Lady Gaga

While we may never see the video for “Do What U Want,” Lady Gaga has moved on to her next ARTPOP single. The pop superstar goes big in the video for “G.U.Y.” Shot last month at California’s famed Hearst Castle, the extravagant clip features more outrageous fashion, synchronized swimmers, and cameos from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

“We had our work cut out for us with this video,” said Gaga during her appearance on “Today.” “It was a very big production. We shot for six days and it was just such a pleasure working with the whole team.”

She turned heads with her performance at SXSW, where vomit artist Millie Brown threw up on her onstage.

“For us, that performance was art in its purest form,” she said in response to the controversy. “But we totally understand that some people won’t be into it. We don’t make things with any intention other than in the spirit of entertaining the crowd and creating something that is really for the moment.”

The “G.U.Y.” video will premiere Saturday at 8 p.m. on NBC’s “Dateline.” Go behind the scenes below.
