Video: Lady Gaga – ‘Judas’

Lady Gaga

Holy moly. Lady Gaga stirs up more controversy in the video for “Judas,” the second single from her third album Born This Way, due May 23. The envelope pusher stars as Mary Magdalene in the reimagining of the betrayal of Jesus Christ by Judas. The video opens with Gaga riding in a motorcycle gang with Jesus and his apostles through a modern day Jerusalem. During several wardrobe changes, she attempts to warn Jesus of Judas’ deceit, but in the end, she pays the ultimate price for his sins.

“We don’t touch on things that we have no right touching upon, but the inspiration and the soul and idea that out of your oppression, your darkness, your Judas, you can come into the marvelous light,” the clip’s co-director and choreographer Laurieann Gibson told The Hollywood Reporter. “So it’s about the inspiration and to never give up… We’ve created a new Jerusalem.”

Watch Gaga catch the holy spirit in the religious-themed visuals.

    i believe this is only the short version of the video, cus if she spent 10mil then i know it has to be one of her 10 minute videos. this is probably just the version that’ll get played on tv and stuff..

    I must say I really enjoy this video, and this is not even the full version, but the version for T.V. This is definetly the best video of 2011 so far. All that people who critisize better be looking to what other singers are doing right now, none of them are doing this kind of videos, not this elaborate. This video it’s amazing!

    Traditional Christianity is truly the last acceptable prejudice indeed…if you want Ms. Germanotta to go back to her old “Just Dance” ways, give me a HELL YEAH!

    @Hlove, too right. Lady Gaga is only a cheap version of what Madonna represents. i’m a smart kid and i don’t need to watch copycats. Her lil monsters are just dumb!!!

    Nikky m Reply:

    @mandy, I agree 100 percent with you. Im so happy that i was old enough to enjoy Madonna in her 80′s & 90′s era cause she could and still can kick Lady Gaga’s arse to the curb. Lady Gaga is an unoriginal talentless hideous drag queen who should just get lost.

    I found slightly dis-respectable the fact that she had crosses over her bra. She keeps claiming that she loves God and Jesus yet she does this video, she is definitly contridicting herself.

    this doesn’t really do it for me… Bad Romance was probably her best and then Telephone, the story here is kinda cool but other than that, nothing really shocking…

    I think Lady Gaga is a very interesting woman and misunderstood, most of the time… I think this song has nothing to do with religion. Read between the lines. I loved it! And I am not a fan of Gaga’s music and music videos, but this one, I liked. Maybe the fact that her leading man was a damn cutie helped a little, but that to the side…

    [Reply]

    Neickha Reply:

    @Lisa, Yep she said it has to do with her past relationships, Her being with the good guy ex: Jesus but still falling for or being in love with the bad guy ex: Judas. She used religion in a symbolic way to tell a (her) story.

    A BIT MESSY ! the wackest lady gaga vid ever. its a average video

    [Reply]

  63. youamuseme LITERALLY

    I don’t understand if Gaga is an attention whore then why are you giving her attention? She used Jesus and Judas as metaphors describing two men who she loves. Jesus is her savior and she knows that he is the better choice; however, she can’t get Judas out of her system, so she chooses him. You can say the same for the hatred being thrown in this post. Instead of saying anything good or simply bypassing this post, you decided to post something negative. If she’s a devil worshipper then don’t say anything because you’re supporting it by clicking on it. Now it’s on the Most Read of the Week list. Thanks to you.
