Must See: Where Lady Gaga Filmed “G.U.Y”, The Hearst Castle In California

Lady Gaga’s released an 11-minute ARTPOP film for her song “G.U.Y”, which along with performing the provocative single also features the song “Venus”. The video follows Gaga after being reborn (or as she enters the next stage in life) and makes her way to a white mansion that’s filled with familiar faces from the Bravo family (like Andy Cohen as Zeus) and turns into a big Gaga-esque party. The entire video is flawless, with the dance numbers reminding me of her “Paparazzi” days, but something that’s also worth mentioning is the location of where the video was shot, the Hearst Castle on the Pacific coast of San Luis Obispo County, California in its own town of San Simeon.

The beautiful central Californian castle, a National and California Historical Landmark mansion designed in the Mediterranean Revival style, can actually be visited and able to host events. It dates back to 1919 and can look like a castle in the sky as it is perched on a hill with an altitude of 1,600 feet.
