A celebration of faith

We’ve not yet even seen the video for Lady GaGa’s new single ‘Judas’ and she’s already trying to explain away the controversy, which from what we can see can only be related to religion, and specifically Catholicism.

Pop’s current ruling Queen is planning on premiering the clip during an upcoming episode of American Idol, and to dampen any fears that Middle America might have about its content, she’s claimed that the video is supposed to be a celebration of faith and religion, rather than challenging it. Whether the people will buy it is another matter altogether.

‘Well the video, in essence, suggests that 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,’ she said. ‘Well, 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.

‘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.’
