Lady Gaga’s new music video for single “G.U.Y.” has Christians calling blasphemy.
The semi-pornographic video, which can be seen on YouTube, features Gaga as a fallen angel. During one scene of the almost 8-minute video, the viewer sees Gaga resurrect a man clearly intended to represent Jesus and then clone him.
The title “G.U.Y.” refers to “girl under you” which is a repeated phrase throughout the song.
In the introduction to the song, Gaga speaks the words, “Greetings Himeros/God of sexual desire, son of Aphrodite/Lay back, and feast as this audio guides you through new and exciting positions.”
Throughout the rest of the video, dancers are shown mocking sexual intercourse while wearing little clothing to go along with the risque lyrics.
Gaga describes her style of music as “Artpop” but Christians have been quick to voice the lack of art they see in this video reports Charisma News.
Still, some support Gaga’s form of art. Pop singer Lily Allen was reported in Rolling Stone magazine saying, “If she’s not succeeding commerically because she’s standing by what she does as art, then that’s a (expletive) great thing. That’s to be commended. That’s what makes a martyr. There’s nothing wrong with that.”
