Lady Gaga: Judas' Music Video is not Anti-Religion
Lady Gaga's latest release, 'Judas' was officially premiered on Thursday night (May 5), but the video had already leaked on the internet earlier that day. Gaga was featured on E! News, where she talked about the clip, a pop-culture influenced portrayal of a love triangle between Jesus (Rick Gonzalez), Mary Magdalene (Gaga) and Judas (Norman Reedus).
Directed by Lady Gaga along with Laurieann Gibson- her creative director, the video revolves around fashion, desire and betrayal.
Heated discussions are already underway regarding the video, but Gaga maintains that there is nothing controversial about it. "In my opinion, the only controversial thing about this video is that I'm wearing Christian Lacroix and Chanel in the same frame, " she remarked humorously.
"This video is not meant to be an attack on religion. I respect and love everyone's beliefs. I'm a religious and spiritual person who's obsessed with religious art. I'm obsessed with it, " the Poker Face singer said.
Talking about Judas, Lady Gaga commented, "Honestly, it came out more incredible than I thought it would. It's so beautiful. It's like a fresco come to life. We went on set and we just shot the sh-- out of it."
The Born This Way-singer futher added, "I just want to keep making stuff that's great and thought-provoking."
