Here's the only part of the music video for Lady Gaga and R. Kelly's hit 'Do What U Want' that we'll ever get to see, luckily.

The Terry Richardson-directed video was shot in September and set to be released last December, but the project was scrapped and now that we've watched this clip, we understand why. R. Kelly plays a doctor who cops a feel after administering medicine to Gaga to make her pass out before he and the hospital staff has a party on top of her limp body.

According to PageSix, the hospital theme was inspired by her real-life hip injury and this isn't the worst of it. In an earlier scene, the rapper allegedly says he's going to rape her while unconscious. "I'm putting you under, and when you wake up, you're going to be pregnant," he supposedly says. R. Kelly was tried and acquitted on child pornography charges before, so he's not exactly helping his image with this kind of video.

Richardson, who's also been accused of sexually abusing models before, makes a cameo in the video too, snapping photos of the singer as she writhes around naked. "Gaga had a video directed by an alleged sexual predator, starring another sexual predator. With the theme, 'I'm going to do whatever I want with your body'? It was literally an ad for rape," a source tells PageSix.

Gaga herself originally claimed the video was scrapped because of time and budget constraints, but it seems this was definitely best left on the cutting room floor. We know Mother Monster likes to be controversial, but glamorizing sexual assault is so not cool or okay, especially when you have legions of young fans.
