Tuesday's episode featured a snippet of "Do What U Want" during a scene when one of the firefighters is listening to a mixtape.
The appearance of the song may not have been a coincidence. One of the show's stars is Taylor Kinney, who is dating the performer. The two have been an item since 2011 when Kinney appeared in Gaga's video for her song, "You & I."
Although it debuted at No. 1, "ARTPOP" is already being classified as a major disappointment following the huge success of her "The Fame" and "Born This Way" albums.
