Lady Gaga is pretty controversial, but her ‘Do What U Want’ music video is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. The Terry Richardson-directed video, which also features R. Kelly on the track, is actually so controversial that Gaga’s team has actually decided not to release it, TMZ reports. TMZ has obtained a 33-second clip from the NSFW video, which you can watch here.

It is no secret that director and photographer Terry Richardson is known for his eyebrow-raising photo shoots and apparent sleazy demeanor, but several models have come forward saying that Richardson sexually assaulted them after a shoot, New York Magazine reports. (Gaga was reportedly unaware of this when she shot the music video.) And R. Kelly, who plays a questionable doctor in the music video, has long been accused of sexually assaulting underage girls. So yes, it makes sense that the music video — which features R. Kelly examining a heavy-breathing Gaga and Richardson photographing Gaga writhing around and touching herself — was scrapped. Not to mention that the chorus of the song includes the lyrics, “Do what you want with my body.”

To quote a New York Post source, “Gaga had a video directed by an alleged sexual predator, starring another sexual predator. With the theme, ‘I’m going to do whatever I want with your body’? It was literally an ad for rape.”
