    In case you were worried about Gandhi’s legacy, you may now breathe a sigh of relief, as he and his message of nonviolence are now almost assured to live on thanks to Lady Gaga’s new music video/short film “G.U.Y.” The pop star resurrects the Mahatma, along with Jesus, John Lennon and Michael Jackson, as part of some bizarre science experiment to create the perfect guy. Nothing bad about that romance — assuming she’s able to remove Gandhi’s chastity, John Lennon’s temper and Michael Jackson’s, well, um… But seriously, Lady Gaga has some interesting taste in men.
