Oh, wow! We didn't think it was possible, but we're even MORE excited to see this now!
Lady GaGa has received quite a bit of flack from various Catholic groups about her music video of her latest single, Judas - WITHOUT IT EVEN BEING RELEASED, MIGHT WE ADD - but the singer recently opened up about what to actually expect when it premieres on American Idol next week, and she wants everyone to know that neither the song nor the video are supposed to be blasphemous, but quite the opposite - a 'metaphor for forgiveness!'
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.
Such a wonderful message - underneath a really effing RAD idea!
It sounds absolutely fascinating!
And yes, we're very much looking forward to seeing it for ourselves!
Let the cultural baptism commence!
