Okay, Lady Gaga, we get it! The pop superstar, 27, released new single "Do What U Want," featuring R. Kelly, past midnight on Monday, Oct. 21. The up-tempo, sexy electronic track ("Do what you want with my body . . . ") features a provocative (of course!) cover image featuring the backside of a blonde-haired woman (Gaga, presumably) wearing tiny G-string underwear.
Several hours before, on Sunday afternoon, the Grammy winner got fans psyched for the second official ARTPOP single ("Do What U Want" is a followup to "Applause") by ranting somewhat strategically in all caps on Twitter.
"LADY GAGA IS FAT NOW!" she began. "LADY GAGA IS A REDUCTIVE MADONNA COPY! SHE'S OVER NOW!" She continued of various over-the-top rumors that have plagued her over the years: "LADY GAGA IS A HERMAPHRODITE! LOOK AT THIS PIC OF HER D*CK LADY GAGA IS ON DRUGS! HER CAREER IS OVER! (been an addict for 10years) My recovery is a daily battle"
Continued the LGBT activist: "GOD HATES LADY GAGA! #YouCantHaveMyHeart ill always fight for equality, got my own relationship with God."
Gaga commented on the fall 2013 competition on the charts with Katy Perry, and neverending comparisons with her predecessor Madonna: "APPLAUSE didn't DEBUT AT #1! KATY IS BETTER THAN HER! #UWontUseMyMind I write for the music not the charts . . . MADONNA HATES GAGA SHES OVER youtube.com/watch?v=emGPMi… i dont need anybodys permission to be remembered. I will be."
