Lady Gaga's 'Judas' Leaks Online, Singer Releases Song Four Days Early
By John Mitchell Posted Apr 15th 2011 11:30PM
The video for the song is already being talked up, sight unseen. The video's co-director and Gaga's creative director, Laurieann Gibson, told MTV the video will be "groundbreaking," though she also admitted the controversial subject matter nearly caused her to back out of the project. Listen:
In the clip, Gaga reportedly plays Mary Magdalene. Without seeing so much as a picture of the singer costumed as the biblical figure, Catholic League President Bill Donohue told Hollywood Life, "She thinks she is going to be groundbreaking. She is trying to ripoff Christian idolatry to shore up her talentless, mundane and boring performances. This is a stunt."
Of the song itself, Rolling Stone, which got an early listen, says, "'Judas' is a classic Lady Gaga pop banger with three huge hooks, a thumping house music breakdown and a vocal part that borrows a bit of Rihanna's distinctive cadence. Gaga has written about falling for the wrong guy before in 'LoveGame' and 'Bad Romance,' but this time around she's a bit less dark and dramatic."
But our friends at Vulture perhaps put it best: "Anyway: If we were zooted out of our minds at five in the morning on a dance floor in the sketchy part of Berlin right now, this would almost definitely be the greatest song we'd ever heard."
