Lady Gaga Bitten by Wild Creature on ‘G.U.Y.’ Video Shoot
Last week, we found out that Lady Gaga had shot a video with members of 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.' It was not clear which song the video was for or if it was some other project. Now, we're learning that it was for the 'ARTPOP' song 'G.U.Y. (Girl Under You)' and that Gaga was bitten by a creature known as a slow loris while on set.
Ouch, right? Well, not really.
The slow loris is a cute critter known to reside in the Asian jungle. The slow loris is a primate. One was brought to the set -- more on that in a sec -- by an animal trainer, along with a baby kangaroo and an exotic goat. We don't know what exactly makes a goat "exotic," but…
A source told Page Six that "the slow loris is the cutest creature on the planet, and Lady Gaga wanted to use it in one scene, but it nipped her. They put it back in its box and took it away in disgrace."
Clearly, the slow loris was not ready for its closeup, nor was it a "little monster," in Gaga terms.
Gaga was not seriously injured by the bite. "She just laughed about it,” the insider said. "She was a good sport." Let's hope she got a shot or something to make sure nothing comes of the bite, no matter how mini.
Ma Monster also donated $250,000 to the Hearst Castle Preservation Foundation. She requested to make use of the goat, but was turned down.
Now, about the set.
The video was shot over three days at San Simeon, a castle built in California by William Randolph Hearst. Her parents were there, as were synchronized swimmers and the cast of 'TRHOBH.' It was the first time the castle has been used in a commercial situation since 1960. Ma Monster made use of the outdoor Neptune Pool and the indoor Roman Pool.
Sounds like we are in for an opulent video treat.
Anne Hearst, granddaughter of William Randolph Hearst, wound up digging Gaga and the song, saying, "It’s amazing how much this woman does. She’s involved with everything."
Okay, so whatever happened to the 'Do What U Want' video with R. Kelly? The status of that clip remains in limbo.
