Lady Gaga's Creative Director Talks Potentially Offensive 'Judas' VideoLady Gaga's creative director, Laurieann Gibson, almost walked away from the singer's forthcoming 'Judas' video due to it's heavy use of religious themes. Gibson, who is co-directing the video for the single out April 19, was initially fearful of the direction the video was going.

"I was like, 'Listen, I don't want lightning to strike me!'" Gibson told The Hollywood Reporter. "I believe in the gospel and I'm not going there."

Gaga, who is known for pushing the envelope with her videos, apparently pushed a little too far before the video's original concept was reigned in to avoid being offensive.
