Lady Gaga’s video for her latest single “Judas” was supposed to appear on E! exclusively, tonight at 7pm ET but surprise, surprise! It has popped up online ahead of schedule.
The motorcycle riding apostles, leather wearing Sons of Anarchy style Jesus with a crown of sparkly thorns, religious iconography, Mary Magdalene and a reinterpreted Holy Land of steel all give way to a new version of Judas’ betrayal of Jesus and dancing, lots of dancing.
The video was directed by Gaga and her creative director/choreographer Lauriann Gibson, who says the video might just make you weep.
“I’ve been waiting my whole life [for this]. I’m really blown away by it,” Gibson said. “You might cry, and not for the visual content, well you might because the visual is beautiful, but [fans will] be proud. It’s almost like the struggle is over. It was amazing.”
What’s your verdict?
