Lady Gaga

John Lennon Look-Alike

Cut from 'G.U.Y' Video

There are dozens of things that don't make sense in Lady Gaga's "G.U.Y." music video ... but TMZ has solved ... The Mystery of the Empty Coffin. 

In the video, which has over 13 million views on YouTube already, there's a part where Gaga resurrects Michael Jackson, Gandhi and Jesus from the dead ... and they emerge from smoke-filled coffins. But if you watched closely, you would have noticed 4 coffins ... but only 3 resurrections. 

TMZ has learned the fourth dead celeb was supposed to be John Lennon. We spoke with Alexander Karavay, who was cast for the part after submitting the photo below.  He shot his scenes, but was cut from the final version.

Karavay says he's bummed he got the ax -- he'd told his family and friends he was in the video -- but he understands Gaga is an artist and perhaps it was her vision to cut him out.

We're all at the mercy of Gaga.

How ****ing high was this wacko when she thought up this video concept? Not only is it a DUMB SONG it is also the STUPIDEST VIDEO of this decade. Good job gag gag you have fixed your nose and ruined your brained. ****ing idiot. Go to rehab and clean your system out.

I enjoy [much of] GaGa's music, and anyone would be DISILLUSIONED and/or simply HATEFUL to say she's not IMMENSELY TALENTED!! HOWEVER,...with that being said, GaGa is transgendered and/or a hermaphrodite,...NO QUESTION!! The "subliminal hints" and "quiet suggestions" are ALL THERE!! And have been so, since (more or less) the BEGINNING!! GaGa is a WORLD RENOWNED, WORLD CLASS, RESPECTED ARTIST!!! It's time to "come out", GaGa!! DON'T BE A HYPOCRITE ANY LONGER!!!!

Who cares about gaga anymore?
She really did have 15 minutes of fame.
She got really fast into the fat-elvis period of her life.
Even madonna woke up and changed when her sh't got old in the past. Lady gaga no legend, a sidenote perhaps.

it's an 11/12 minute video,and 4 minutes of that are credits. I know full length movies with credits shorter than that.

Pretty easy explanation for this. Lennon was a notorious wife beater. His image doesn't exactly jive with her message.
