Lady Gaga Performs ‘Dope’ and ‘G.U.Y.’ on ‘Letterman’

Lady Gaga, Bill Murray, and David Letterman

Prior to her fourth of seven shows at New York’s famed Roseland Ballroom, Lady Gaga stopped by “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Wednesday. Rocking big yellow hair, a bikini, and platform heels, the pop superstar posed for a selfie with Bill Murray and Letterman, and invited the audience to her concert.

She was escorted across the street by the gentlemen before hitting the Roseland stage to perform her ARTPOP singles “Dope” and “G.U.Y.”

Backstage, she was joined by well wishers including Martha Stewart. “And um this happened today. Who knows why. She had deviled eggs and sequined crop pants,” tweeted Gaga.

All her Little Monsters will be able to watch a live stream of her April 7 Roseland performance, the final show before the historic venue closes its doors once and for all.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga returned to her home of New York City for the first of seven shows at Roseland Ballroom, marking the final performances at the historic hall. The pop superstar, who turned 28 on Friday, celebrated her birthday with 3,200 of her Little Monsters.

She pulled up to the venue in a yellow rose-covered taxi and emerged in a skin-colored bodysuit adorned with roses.

With her parents looking on, she kicked off the one-hour show with an acoustic version of “Born This Way” and ran through six wardrobe changes while performing hits including “Just Dance,” “Dope,” and “Bad Romance,” closing with her latest single “G.U.Y.”

“Don’t ever leave me, OK, I love you so much,” she told her fans during a piano version of “Poker Face.”

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 Previews ‘G.U.Y.’ Video

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.

Lady Gaga Performs with Twista, Gets Puked On at SXSW

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga pulled out all the stops during her South by Southwest debut, performing for more than 2,000 of her Little Monsters on the Doritos #BoldStage on Thursday at Stubb’s BBQ in Austin, Texas.

In anticipation of her upcoming “artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball” tour, the pop provocateur performed a dramatic hour-long set consisting of material off her latest album ARTPOP including “Aura,” “Dope,” and “Do What U Want.”

During her strange and bizarre performance of “Swine,” Gaga invited “vomit painter” Millie Brown onstage. After downing some barbecued sausages earlier in the show, Brown consumed a full bottle of bright green liquid before forcing herself to vomit on Gaga as she played drums.

The singer then climbed atop a mechanical pig, playing the keyboard as she straddled Brown, who painted Gaga with black liquid.

“Fuck you pop music. This is ARTPOP. Free yourself!” commanded Gaga.

She also brought out Twista to perform their collaboration “Jewels N’ Drugs” during which she poured cans of beer on herself and the audience.

The concert, which benefited her Born This Way Foundation, will be rebroadcast on March 29 at 10 p.m. EST on Fuse.

Watch Gaga bring her “artRAVE” to SXSW.
