President Barack Obama was edited into Lady Gaga’s single, “Do What U Want,” which was then uploaded to YouTube.
“Do what you want with your body,” the edited clip of Obama says. It appears most of the words were taken from Obama’s speeches about the Affordable Health Care Act.
It was uploaded to the channel Baracksdubs, which turn Obama speeches into songs.
The clip comes after Lady Gaga alleged that she was “mismanaged” over her ARTPOP album campaign, namely about the “Do What U Want” video.
“It is late because, just like with the ‘Applause’ video unfortunately, I was given a week to plan and execute it. 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,” she said, according to the Little Monsters social media site.
She added: “Millions of dollars are not enough for some people. They want billions. Then they need trillions. I was not enough for some people. They wanted more.”
ARTPOP generated a great deal of sales but it didn’t capture the same success as her debut album “The Fame.”
“Unfortunately after my surgery, I was too sick, too tired and too sad to control the damage on my own,” Gaga also said of her health problems last year.
She added, “My label was not aware that this was going on. The next few months of ARTPOP will truly be its beginning. Because those who did not care about ARTPOP’s success are now gone … I never thought after all the years of hard work that those I called friends and partners would ever care so little at a time I needed them the most.”
Gaga will start her North American tour in March.
