Lady Gaga hasn’t even released a video for her new single, ‘Judas’ yet, and she’s already facing religious backlash, but the singer wants to assure you all that she has no intent of being blasphemous with the new song.
Gaga had this to say about the video, which will appear next week during American Idol;
Well the video, in essence, suggests that [pauses] forgiveness and betrayal are hand in hand and that… how do I say this? The video puts destiny above all things and postures that the mistakes in your life are in fact not mistakes at all, they are just part of your overarching potential and your destiny.
I want to allow the video to speak for itself but I will say that the theme of the video and the way that I wanted to aesthetically portray the story was as a motorcycle Fellini movie where the apostles are revolutionaries in a modern-day Jerusalem. And I play Mary Magdalene leading them into the town where we meet Jesus and I will leave the rest for you to see. But it’s meant more to celebrate faith than it is to challenge it.
To that we say good luck dealing with these people! Even an enlightening message like that will have a hard time soaking into some of those brainwashed people’s skulls.
We can’t wait!
