Watch: Lady Gaga spanked in bathtub for raunchy new video

Photographer Terry Richardson is reknowned for his smutty style, so the fact that Lady Gaga's new girls-in-a-bathtub-spanking video was directed by him will surprise no-one.

Gaga released a 15-second teaser for the video, called 'Cake', which sees her gyrating in her underwear, posing with her butt in the air and pouting suggestively at the camera wearing a bra. Oh, and she raps. Something about "burqa swag" — WTF?

No word on whether the track will feature on her upcoming album, Artpop - but 'Cake' has already made her live set.

It's already a fan favourite thanks to lyrics like "You chew beef, I wear meat/ And stay on top of the -- I'm-I'm-I'm-I'm/ Getting fat and so is my bank/With a sold out world tour, b----."
