Watch: Lady Gaga – “Judas”

on May 05, 2011, 8:20pm

With the video for “Born This Way”, Lady Gaga set the “Holy Shit I Can’t Believe She Did” bar pretty high by giving birth in space. And while the video clip for “Judas” is less vomit-inducing, the controversy surrounding it has people feeling just as uneasy. The video, available for viewing above, features the Queen Monster as Mary Magdalene riding around on a chopper with the 12 apostles of Jesus Christ, who are represented by a biker gang. Who among us doesn’t think motorcycles are cool?

Aside from your standard dance routine, skimpy outfits, and creepily enthusiastic back-up dancers, the video features a Latino Jesus Christ and Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead, The Boondock Saints) as Judas. The rest, though, is fairly tame. A gun gets pulled out, people make out, Gaga takes a bath with Jesus and Judas, and everyone goes home happy. Except for Gaga, who apparently has a religious experience and passes out/dies. Well, at least you won’t be queasy after watching this one.

In an interview with MSNBC, Gaga said that the clip wasn’t meant to disrespect people’s religious briefs; instead, the whole concept is “meant more to celebrate faith than it is to challenge it.” So, think twice before you get your nine-inch nails out, folks.

A long-form, seven-minute version of the video will debut on E! at 7:00 pm EST.

Born This Way hits stores May 23rd via Interscope.

It doesn’t surprise me in the least that she would use Jesus Christ in her video. He is, and will always be, a hotter topic than she is. Lord of Lords and King of Kings. Still the hottest after 2000 years… and for all eternity. Sorry Gaga, you will never reach that level of fame. But keep riding his coat tails and you might get somewhere. : )
