Lady Gaga Explains the "devastating" Delay of "Do What U Want" Video

Wondering what happened to Lady Gaga's seemingly scandalous and awesome "Do What U Want" video featuring R. Kelly and directed by Terry Richardson? Her Gaganess explains it all in a Full-Martyr post on her Little Monsters social media site:

Lady Gaga "It is late because, just like with the Applause video unfortunately, I was given a week to plan and execute it. It is very devastating for someone like me, I devote every moment of my life to creating fantasies for you. All my my most successful videos were planned over a period of time when I was rested and my creativity was honored. Those who have betrayed me gravely mismanaged my time and health and left me on my own to damage control any problems that ensued as a result."

Does that clear things up? No? 

In other confusing news, Gaga just recorded and released a version of "Do What U Want" with Christina Aguilera... So, who knows what will be released or when...

A Great Big World f/ Christina Aguilera "Say Something" (Christopher Sims, dir.)

The presence of Christina Aguilera on this gorgously stripped-down pop ballad threatens to drown out brainy NYC duo A Great Big World, much in the same way that not many people noticed Mikky Ekko on his similarly fantastic Rihanna collaboration.

That said, Christina has already invited them to perform with her on The Voice, while also providing the name recognition that will open many mainstream radio and pop radio doors. And, unsuprisingly, she hits all the notes perfectly.
