It's not serious...
The New York Post reports that Lady Gaga was bitten by a slow loris on the set of the music video for "G.U.Y. (Girl Under You)". She then replaced the animal with five of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The song comes from her album ARTPOP.
Gaga, her parents, her crew and synchronized swimmers arrived at San Simeon, a castle in California built by William Randolph Hearst. An animal trainer brought a slow loris, a baby kangaroo and an "exotic" goat, but none of the animals were used. Gaga wasn't hurt by the bite.
A source said: "The slow loris is the cutest creature on the planet, and Lady Gaga wanted to use it in one scene, but it nipped her. They put it back in its box and took it away in disgrace. She just laughed about it. She was a good sport."
Gaga has previously donated $250,000 to the Hearst Castle Preservation Foundation. She later wanted to se the goat but an official from the California State Parks Department said "absolutely not".
Gaga instead used Housewives stars Kim and Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Yolanda Foster and Carlton Gebbia.
The venue hasn't been used in a commercial shoot since Stanley Kubrick filmed Spartacus there in 1960. Gaga even used the Neptune Pool for one scene, as well as the indoor Roman Pool (with golf leaf and lapis lazuli Murano tiles).
Anne Hearst, granddaughter of William Randolph Hearst, said: "Even in my grandfather's day, the castle never saw anything like this. It's amazing how much this woman does. She's involved with everything."
She added that she still liked the song even after hearing it nonstop for three days.
