California is in the middle of an historic drought, so it only makes sense that Lady Gaga blew through 365,000 gallons of water so there wouldn’t be an empty pool in the background while shooting her “G.U.Y.” video at the Hearst Castle. Did the water table write ARTPOP? Then it can go fuck itself. Radar reports:
The pool had to be drained before the shoot because it was leaking 5000 gallons of water each day.
However, once Gaga had finished filming, the water — earmarked to be re-used for on-site irrigation at the state park — was discovered to be unusable, a source who works at the Castle told Radar.
“The water had to be chlorinated because Gaga got into the pool with synchronized swimmers,” the insider, who asked not to be identified, said.
“Since the water was chlorinated, it couldn’t be used for any of the irrigation or landscaping at the Castle. The water was simply drained and disposed of.
“It was a huge waste of water which is such a precious resource in California at the moment because of the draught.”
For those of you living in California, I embedded Lady Gaga’s “G.U.Y.” video below so when the vaqueros begin The Great Water War, you’ll always remember how weird her butt looked as you watch your children die of thirst in a lawless wasteland of dust and hopelessness. Not to mention the Real Housewives are in it, so I don’t see how anyone can act surprised that it foretold the apocalypse. They practically spell it right out.
