Well, that's one way to dispel the "hermaphrodite" rumors.
In her new, 9-minutes-plus video for "Telephone," (costarring Beyonce) Lady Gaga silences outlandish internet chatter about her biological gender — by nearly exposing her crotch onscreen.
The epic clip opens with the pop diva being escorted into a women's prison. Two gruff female guards throw her into a cell and strip off her clothes.
Gaga, with pasties on her breasts, sheer tights, and no underwear, throws herself up against the bars of the cell; the camera blurs out the X-rated view of the star's genitals.
Quips a guard: "I told you she didn't have a d***."
"Too bad," says the other.
As the video continues, Gaga breaks out of jail with the help of the "Pussy Wagon" from Kill Bill, teams up with a flirty, pouty-mouthed Beyonce, poisons a diner full of people and sports one avant-garde outfit after another.
"There's certainly always a hidden message in my music videos," Lady Gaga explained E! News. "But I would say most predominately, I'm always trying to convolute everyone's idea of what a pop music video should be."
The star added that she wanted the "Telephone" video to convey "the idea that America is full of young people that are inundated with information and technology and turn it into something that was more of a commentary on the kind of country that we are."
