Contrary to initial reports, Lady Gaga‘s video for “Judas”, the second single from Born This Way, did not cost $10 million dollars to make. Even if the clip for the religion-skewed romance dance track cost Gaga two shiny pennies, we’d still be head over lobster claws waiting to see what visual delirium she’s come up with this time (especially since she co-directed “Judas” with her creative director Laurieann Gibson). Now’s the time, little monsters — watch the makeup-gun-toting pop star’s latest creation.
“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,” Gaga explained to MSNBC about the video. “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.”
What do you think of Gaga as Mary Magdalene, Biker Babe? And where does this rank in the entire catalog of Mama Monster’s music videos?
