May 5 is the original date of release of Lady Gaga’s "Judas" but 8 hours before it. The video, now officially posted on Gaga’s YouTube page, has so far had more than 1.7 million views.
The video flamed up another religious controversy as Lady Gaga portrayed Mary Magdalene riding in a motorcycle with Jesus Christ and the apostles.
"It’s difficult to see why some people would have a problem with the video," MTV US stated. "Sure, Jesus looks different, and Gaga is playing Magdalene (certainly one of the most controversial figures in the Bible), but its imagery isn’t nearly as sacred/profane as that of the ‘Alejandro’ clip."
Though self-confessed as a Catholic, Lady Gaga’s fans and anti-fans are confused where she stands spiritually. Because of her ‘fascination’ of Christian icons and ambiguous videos and song lyrics , she’s been called names like satanic or an illuminati. But nevertheless, it’s an effective way to get more media attention and Grammy’s nominations.
Now, since the video we’ve been waiting for is already out, check the ugly/pretty dance routine, scanty outfits, and creepily enthusiastic back-up dancers," describing it as "fairly tame."
