Lady Gaga’s second single from her upcoming “ARTPOP” is a fierce burner that sought out the help from R. Kelly, who is no longer trapped in the closet. “Do What You Want” is a bona fide Top 40 pop gem waiting for the remix treatment from club DJs across the land.
The release of the glossy single brought a surly Lady Gaga to the Twitters early this morning with a rant against Madonna, weight and hermaphrodite claims. Gaga even pointed out that she writes “for the music not the charts.” Look for her new album, “ARTPOP,” to master the charts on Nov. 11.
