Harper’s Bazaar cover girl Lady Gaga might be clutching the Rosary today over her new Born This Way single “Judas” popping up online, ahead of its official April 19 release date. A low-quality snippet of the song was doing the rounds, but now the full song has now surfaced. Hear it below!
“Judas” appears to combine dubstep, dance-pop and even heavy metal elements into one fast-paced oddity of a tune. We’re just still laughing, all Beavis And Butt-head-like, over Gaga employing the words “hooker,” “prostitute” and “wench.”

If anything, this short bit of the song proves that these lyrics, at least in part, are bunk.
UPDATE: Here’s the full song…[wpaudio url="http://cdn.idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/01-Judas.mp3" text="Lady Gaga - Judas (full song)" dl="0"]
From the intro to the chorus to Lady Gaga calling out her own name in the Judas-jude-ah-ah chant, “Judas” comes off as being reminiscent of her 2009 smash “Bad Romance.”
During her chat at Google’s headquarters last month, Gaga mentioned that “Judas is a man of the Biblical senses. So expect to see some symbolism in this video.”
What do you think of “Judas”? Is it another hit or a complete miss for Lady Gaga?
