Saving ARTPOP - Lady Gaga

Earlier this week, Lady Gaga released an open letter to her fans on LittleMonsters.com explaining the delay in the release of the “Do What U Want” video. In the letter, Mother Monster not only apologized for the late video, she also casted blame on the underwhelming performance of ARTPOP so far.

“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,” the self-professed Goddess of Love wrote. “Millions of dollars are not enough for some people.”
