An elaborate Lady Gaga music video shot in part at Hearst Castle in San Simeon in February is due for release Saturday, according to Remar Sutton of the Hearst Castle Preservation Foundation, which helped with arrangements for the production.
A water-conservation video also featuring Gaga is due to be delivered to state offices by Wednesday, Sutton said.
The pop diva also did a video promoting the Castle preservation foundation, but Sutton said he didn't know when that was due for completion.
The pop star's “creative project” — said to be more involved than a typical music video — at the Castle Feb. 12 and 13 drew some criticism because the iconic Neptune Pool was refilled for the filming. The leaky 345,000-gallon pool was being drained to save water until the pool could be repaired.
Never miss a local story.
The 150,000 gallons of water needed to refill the pool was donated by Hearst Ranch at the suggestion of Stephen Hearst, a Hearst Corp. vice president, and later used on Castle landscaping.
