'Subtle' is not a word that will feature heavily in a Lady Gaga history book, and her new video 'Cake' is set to be one of her most unsubtle (and eye-catching) releases to date.

In a new teaser clip released today (19 November, 2012) the singer is seen taking things literally and rolling aound in a big pile of cake in the Terry Richardson-directed new video. She is also in her bra and pants, obviously.

But food and music go hand in hand - just as easily as sex and music. In fact, these are three of our very favourite things. Many music videos have worked these three elements together, from a nearly-naked Gary Barlow rubbing jelly all over his hairless torso in Take That's early days to Katy Perry's exploding cream breasts in her 'California Gurls' video, food porn is a favourite for many pop stars.

So, inspired by Lady Gaga's new food porn attempt, check out some of our favourite moments of food, music and sex...

  • Katy Perry 'California Gurls': Katy Perry's cream explosion in retaliation to Snoop Dogg is one of music's finest food porn moments. No question.

  • Tenacious D 'Low Hanging Fruit': Nice melons.

  • Take That 'Do What U Like': In one of Take That's earliest video, the five-piece boyband were seen smearing each other in jelly and cream.

  • Rihanna 'Only Girl (In The World)', X Factor: A shocked Dermot O'Leary struggled to interview Rihanna after her 2010 X Factor performance as her backing dancers hurled their dinner at one another in the background.

  • Bonde Do Role 'Kilo': In a spectacular 2012 comeback, Bonde Do Role's new track sees the band perform with instruments cover in fruit - while men play carnival games - which include hurling fruit at barely-dressed ladies.

  • Travis 'Sing': Not food-porn as such (unless posh people covered in soup is your thing), but this is a classic food fight video.

  • Azealia Banks 'Liquorice': The pop-rapper made fast-food sexy in her Wild West themed video for second single.

  • Simian Mobile Disco 'Hustler': Underrated dance duo turned food-porn into something dark in this spectaular video which left a bad taste in the mouth.

  • Jessie J 'Nobody's Perfect': A sad excuse for a food fight, Jessie J is less than impressed with the rat-infested mess she is left with at the end of her third solo video.

  • Lil Kim: It's not always easy to make food look sexy, as rapper Lil Kim found in 2010 when she visited a milkshake parlour in the US.

  • Lady Gaga 'Cake': Taking things literally in the video for her 'Cake Like Lady Gaga' track, the oddball megastar risks crumbs in her cracks by rolling around in a giant cake. What a waste of a good pudding.
