Rufus Wainwright may not be aching to hang out with Lady Gaga, but he does count Helena Bonham Carter among his pals. The crooner therefore called upon the King’s Speech actress to star in the video for “Out Of The Game”, the lead single off his forthcoming album of the same name. In the clip, Helena stars as a frustrated librarian while Rufus plays several parts, including a slacker-like library patron and a blond woman. Eventually, Carter strips and Wainwright makes out with himself in the stacks. Watch the naughtiness below.
Rufus Wainwright — ”Out Of The Game”
“We have been friends for years,” Rufus told The Sun last month about his friendship with Helena. “Not only is she very beautiful, very glamorous, but she is also incredibly funny. At the end of the video she is basically wearing a bra. So I very much appreciate her friendship for furthering my career.”
Hmmm. We’re just wondering what Carter got out of it? She doesn’t look too satisfied there at the end, does she?
Wainwright’s Out Of The Game LP was produced by Mark Ronson, and will be out April 23.
