In Lady Gaga‘s recent interview with Britain’s Stylist, (the same one in which she talked about her “bathtub outfit”), the singer revealed her forthcoming project ARTPOP contains a sexually empowering song called “G.U.Y. (Girl Under You).” However, in the interview it was relayed as “Go Under You,” so Gaga took to her Little Monsters site to clarify the name. Gaga mentioned the song when asked about feminism, and her answer involved the phrase “edible things between your limbs.” So you’re gonna want to click through for her full quote.

When asked “Can make-up and feminism ever truly be friends?” Gaga responded by explaining her form of feminism:

As a new-age feminist, I would say I quite like the transference of strength I feel by submitting to a man – being under him. I actually wrote a song about it on my album, it’s called GUY and it stands for [Girl] Under You. So wearing make-up, smelling delicious and having suckable, kissable, edible things between your limbs is something I find strengthening because I know that when I pick the right guy, I can let him have it. Some women feel oppressed by make-up and clothing, and here’s to them, they have every right to feel that way as well.”

Back in September, three other potential ARTPOP song titles popped up online — “Candy Art,” “Cold Hearted Bitch” and “CRWTH”— and Mother Monster also confirmed the album would contain a “Telephone” sequel. But the goal now is to find out which volume of the record all these songs may appear on.

    “As a new-age feminist, I would say I quite like the transference of strength I feel by submitting to a man – being under him.”

    - Really? Did she just completely missed the point of the feminist movement? What year are we now? 1930?
