[Bridge: Lady Gaga]

from Lady Gaga (Ft. R. Kelly) – Do What U Want Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The media criticizes Gaga for her songs, behavior, fashion, voice and opinions way more often then they criticize her for her body. Seriously, have you ever read about the media ‘doing what they want’ to her body? Some idiot in some media outlet somewhere might have said something, but Lady Gaga obviously has a phenomenal body, part of which we see on the awesome cover art. The media does not have her body, it is too beautiful for even them to ruin or “do what they want” with. Her body is untouchable. This song is about something else.

This is a song about casual sex.

Lady Gaga is a leader in challenging traditional views of marriage, fashion, love and especially sex. Consistent with other Gaga songs which challenge the norm, “do what u want” demonstrates that it is possible for a woman have casual sex and not have to sacrifice her voice or life. Gaga wants people (women, in particular) to do what they want.

In the bridge we see Gaga proclaim that she would prefer to have casual sex than to complicate things with a relationship. “Just take my body and don’t stop the party”.
