Lady Gaga: 'Judas' Video Debut!

Lady Gaga: 'Judas' Video Debut!

Lady Gaga rides a motorcycle in her new video for “Judas,” her second single from her new album, Born This Way!

The 25-year-old entertainer directed the video with her creative director, Laurieann Gibson. Appearing as Judas is The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus!

“Well, 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. “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.”

Born This Way will be released on May 23 in stores and on iTunes.

FYI: Gaga is wearing a Schott NYC leather jacket.

I hope that Lady Gaga has a cameo in Star Trek 12 as a singer and her character could have dark connections to the Orion Syndicate (the mafia of the Star Trek universe) who should be the villains of the sequel. With her futuristic music and style, she would fit right in.
Midway through Star Trek 12, I’d like to see Kirk, Spock and McCoy go undercover to a concert of hers on a distant planet like with Diva Plavalaguna in The Fifth Element (1997). When she sings Bad Romance, Paparazzi, Poker Face or Just Dance, her show could be raided by Syndicate henchmen who have a thunderous phaser fight with Kirk, Spock and McCoy.

Lady Gaga was so voluptuous in 2008/2009 for a while when she first became famous but has lost so much weight and is so skinny now. Why did she do it? She was perfect before. Please put 10 pounds back on. She looks wasted.

@Jennifer Gardner:

I like the Lady Gaga idea, maybe a duet with William Shatner?

# 5

Lady Gaga doesn’t have a good figure anymore.
She’s too skinny and a bad example to women around the country.
She should have a healthy model figure that boasts an ample cleavage, fuller legs and a fuller backside.

AMAZING!! omg gaga looks incredibly gorgeous :) i am so happy with this ‘normal’ video!! love her.



how clear is that this woman an the system behind her wants to pass subconsciously all the fu**** masonic symbols…kiss my ass

Pure trash. So sick of Gaga.

Haters gonna hate

i had to stop watching after 2 minutes. the song is terrible, and the video makes it worse. lmao @ that choreography. it seriously made me giggle.

MangerBouger @ 05/05/2011 at 11:37 am

I did not understand anything in this video O_O.

@Lord: If you’re sick of the Gaga, then why did you watch the video? That makes you an idiot.

this B is having an identity crisis Madonna religious themes Gwen Stephani chola themes & Romeo Juliette she does vomit every1 else’s work.

Idk.. I’m kind of disappointed and insulted

Just sayin @ 05/05/2011 at 11:44 am

I used to like her…but yikes!! This looks like a “Pirates of the Caribbean” floor show at a seafood restaurant in Myrtle Beach. Bad.

Amazing video. Very visually stunning.

iloveriley @ 05/05/2011 at 11:46 am

please .. tell me who is that jesus .. he’s hot !

does she think shes pretty enough for those close ups back that camera up ewww is right

She has become such a flop now..judas was bad and so inappropriate. Her time is over. SADDD

Hi all, I find this video so good, beautiful, but I have impression that Lady gaga want make a confusion between Jesus & Judas ? Why ? In your song She speak of her love for Judas but we can see that Jesus no ?


You are aware that the synth loop is a royalty free stock synth loop used by many producers right ?! Didn’t think so – another person judging without even knowing

Jesus is hot <3__<3 And Am i the only one who actually likes the video? Jesus people it’s a song dont take it seriously!

@Exchange: thats why i said i thought her work was original & God sent lol. she used a free synth gasp. anyway she wasted 10 million Judas is still a flop.

Judas was in the Billboards top ten actually and E! made a mistake it was not 10 million – it was only worth roughly one million…plus she never claims to be original she always said where she took influence from – everyone else said she was purely original which she usually refutes.

WOW …!
Это однозначно не Джудас. Такую песню я вообще не слышал, что она тут поёт…!

WOW …!
Это однозначно не Джудас. Такую песню я вообще не слышал, что она тут поёт…!

I’m a Britney fan I admit but putting my Bias aside, I think The video is just okay but was it worth the Hyped? Nope…Predictable even the choreography is not that great…very repetitive and simple…Britney’s choreography in HIAM and TTWE is way much better and complicated…Dancing is never been her strength…The only thing I like are the costumes and the” wave scene”…even the storyline is disoriented and acting wise, its terrible…She seems bored and Blank, she’s never been good connecting with the cameras…Its an okay Video…No hate here just stating my opinion..

I like it.. and I hated the song before.


Hip Sway is hardly choreograph, its too reminicent of Telephone. I am not impressed but rather dissappointed in her work these days. c’mon lets be honest this is an “album of the decade” more like a flop

Atleast it didnt copy “like a prayer” ! However its nothing to brag about, it sucks thouugh, she couldve have done more since the song is ok

@Exchnage: Defend Lady copy n paste all you want her self proclaimed “innovative” life changing album of the decade is proving to be a huge rerun of old ideas. Judas only reach #10 cause of the debut radio rotations and the monsTARDS that while buy her turds if she put them up for sell. it didnt even hold on tto top 10. love the way you mansTARDS were all about #’s now its not about the #’s… RIGHT.

Hip waving is NOT dancing, This video is and #EPIC FAIL


I agree 100% I am very level headed I LOVE FAME MOSNTER this is just rubbish I refuse to buy an album that she didnt spend time making!

o i'm bored @ 05/05/2011 at 12:38 pm

Lady Boy Flopga

I don’t understand…. what the hell was this video about ?


I am right there with you-haha I mean I want to say, its ok but I just dont get it. She looks dead in the eyes. The theme is very religious like Madonna Like a Prayer- Bizarro Madonna, and the dancing is britney vma gimme more performance-yes that bad!

Poor lady gaga she justr cant catch a break. but honestly i dont feel bad I remember when perez was saying xtina is a flop and blah blah blah, this is karma and it bit hard. xtina has a WAY better voice and I bought the Bionic album and it was AMAZING, also bought Britney and it too was AMAZING, now lady gaga is saying Britney is manufactured? If you mean manufactured by not writing your own music then so is Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Mr. Blue eyes himself. I for one bought Fame Monster and loved this era is was fresh new and different kind of pop. This new era is regergitated wierd wannabe Madonna.

I am not liking it, oh boy Miss GaGa where did you go? I do like the costume is the ocean, but other than that I am being 100% honest I don’t like it. Love the song hate the video.

WTH was THAT?! This is not a good video AT ALL!!! I am very surprised she came out with this bull? I really liked where she was going with her BTW storyline (kinda wierd, but still digging it), but this is just not cool or edgy- i give it a c-

Another huge dissiappointment! I really like the song, but the video SUCKED. I love Lady Gaga, but I have to be honest. 99% of the video took place in that club. The only other scenes were when she was on the motercycle in the beginning, and towards the end with the bath scene, and the water scene. But that was it! I expected it to be very old timey and classical looking. I am not saying that she had to make the video black and white, and boring, but it was just WAY too modern! She called it her best work, but to me, it is one of her worst music videos. I like the “Eh Eh” video better, and that one is pretty boring to me. I love that she is taking a new direction, but don’t make the videos so freaking generic. The only scene that I thought was actually unique, was the ending scene where she is stoned to death. It was sad, but very significant. Everything else was GARBAGE!!!

Cant do religious undertones-Madonna did it
Cant do blonde- Madonna, Britney,Pink, Xtina did it
Cant Dance- Britney did it
Cant do biker chick- Pink and Gwen did it
Can’t sing- Mariah, Xtina have that down packed
Can’t do unicorns-Ke$ha did it and has been doing it

Bizarro Madonna what do you have left? I say take your $$$ that you made exploiting the LGBT community, Madonna, Britney, Pink, Grace Jones, Lina Morgana, etc and every other artist you ripped off and RUN while you still remain relevant!

Stoned to death at the end? it was DONE be4 by Marilyn Manson in his “Man that you Fear” video.

Another **** video from this idiot Gaga, so sick of him/her, whatever. If any I’m missing Madonna more than ever!

I am an atheist.
But blasphemia is a very low way of asking attention. What exactly does she want now?

she coulda done something better

Guilherme @ 05/05/2011 at 2:14 pm

Volte a copiar a Madonna, vadia
Clip horrendo


I didnt find it interested either :( hopefully she releases Unicorn Highway LOVE the song, great single

Norman Reedus….LOVE!!!



linker nippel @ 05/05/2011 at 4:19 pm

xtina slays with the voice
lady gaga just a epic fail and judas flop
in the end of the day the real icons are on the top

Uhhhhhggggg @ 05/05/2011 at 4:30 pm

because moron, she is dancing and singing up a storm almost every night, gonna shed all the fat when you’re as active as she is

Uhhhhhggggg @ 05/05/2011 at 4:32 pm

hey dipshit, she is dancing and singing in her shows like no other female popstar, not easy to maintain any fat when you’re as busy as she is

lmaoooo soo trash

Connie in Des Moines @ 05/05/2011 at 4:36 pm

@DEE: What about Marilyn Manson??Her Face was not made for Videos..To many Close-ups.By Eyes!Poor thing she’s almost a Butterface.

lavender blonde @ 05/05/2011 at 4:47 pm

The video is GORGEOUS!!! She is beautiful :) <3 you Gaga :***

@Connie in Des Moines: you mean she IS a butterface. yes I agree she does take from Manson from what i have seen. personally i’m not a manson fan so its hard for me to compare them but i did see him use those arm brace things & almost identical metal bustier like she uses in paparazzi. she’s a sad human being. she should have stayed true to herself and stay behind her piano an sing like in her norah jones days. even then not crazy about her voice. i think xtina & mariah have the best voices hands down.

She’s sick and her song sucks, not to mention her video clip which is full of symbolism!

Driving down the 134 in Burbank ???? They closed the freeways for that ish????

Great Video, its better than the videos atm with no meaning at all…

Umm. I like it. and Ive never listened to Gaga until now. I really like this one!

Pure and utter shite.

LOL look at all you fattiies. Her body is HOT get over it.

I’m so tired of her trying to be like madonna. gosh, go away now gaga


@Lord: Don’t hate “Lord”, just because Gaga killed Floptina’s career!
Lmao! It seems the WORLD is SICK of Christina Uglyera!
You know, with the string of major flops she’s had the last few years….
You are “sick” of Gaga but yet drawn to everything she does!
Drink it in! Love it! You know you do!
You are dismissed .. “Lord” .

Connie in Des Moines @ 05/05/2011 at 6:48 pm

@DEE: I thought you can be called a Butterface if you have a Hot Body but have a Ugly Face?

Gaga got the haters buzzing again!!!!
Mission accomplished!
Another score for Gaga!!
Keep the comments comming! Good & bad!!
Love it!!

All the hater comments are from the SAME person!
(A mad Floptina fan obviously)
Stay MAD!!!
Gaga rules! Too bad …

Video of the year!! Gaga is in top form
Buy it on iTunes !!

Omg!!!!! Best video since Telephone! Looooooove it!!!

this video is so crazy hot! I think I’M in love with Judas! (well, at least the guy that plays him) lol!!

I think the video was well done in that the dance moves and videography/directing was interesting but overall I think Gaga is such a gimic, the song is terrible both lyrically and musically and her 5 min of fame is about up. The people working behind the scenes are clearly much more talented than gaga herself, pathetic.

WTF!!!!! She gave Peter Simon who Jesus built his church on him a finger! pause at 2:29

the_boyfriend @ 05/05/2011 at 7:39 pm

Awful! i’m so over her and her ego.
& reading comments on other sites, i’m not alone.

mmmm.. its okay… nothing special…

Lmao, is this site full of Xtina & Britney stans?

I love how she shows clips of her “praying” in her HBO special and then puts out **** like **** KNOWING its going to ignite controversy. What a hypocrite.

horrendous! @ 05/05/2011 at 8:29 pm

She is a runt of a woman. Nothing sexy about her odd little physique whatsoever. And her face is prone to turning gargoyle ugly in brief flashes. The music is irritating, dull and repetitive. And her dance moves are always aggressive and ugly.

how original: why dont we bring sensuality to biblical tales? TIRED. Madonna did it. next.

complete with fake beauty spot. errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

This is so boring. Won’t get those minutes back.

Wost thing ever to happen to music

Ianhoulihan @ 05/05/2011 at 9:19 pm

I’d sleep with Judas. He is hot.

lady gaga


Congrats Gaga! This video did EXCACTLY what it was meant to : Got EVERYBODY talking!
Even the sad little haters searched for it and sat through every second of it!!
Love it or hate it, Gaga WINS!!!

EPIC video!!!!!

Great video!
Why are people so dramatic? It’s just a music video kids.
Relax :)
People put so much effort into nothing! Go out and do some good rather than sitting on your computer hating someone from afar..

Omg! Now I really can’t wait for Born This Way to come out!!!!
May 23rd b!tches!!!!! Ahhhhhhh!!!!

Love her
Love the song
Love the video!
Gaga is so far beyond a popstar, she is a legend

Of course some people will hate it! Anything great in life becomes legendary mostly by the power of hatered , it makes the good better..
Good for Gaga for “playing” the game (and the haters)


she’s amazing, i love it f*** the haters! she’s on the top of the world right now the girl CAN sing soo whateva i love her <3

Don’t like Lady Gaga, never have. But I love Norman Reedus and he rocked as Judas.

LOL she is so ridiculous. And whats with her new teeth?

the ugliest face in the galaxy, even make-up can’t help

Eeeeeew so sick, do not like it

she stole those dance moves from my dad ….. not cool gaga

ICYNDICEY @ 05/06/2011 at 1:50 am

The song is a **** and she’s an even bigger ****. I think it’s time for this chick to drop this Laurie Ann Gibson woman and move on if she wants to survive in the biz. A couple more of these stinkeroos and she won’t be around much longer. I GUARANTEE IT! She’s getting a bit full of herself and it isn’t working. Note to GaGa…YOU ARE NOT MADONNA AND YOU NEVER, EVER WILL BE, CHICK! You have become a parody of yourself now.

ICYNDICEY @ 05/06/2011 at 1:51 am

You got that right! This is one FUGLY ASS *****!

ICYNDICEY @ 05/06/2011 at 1:56 am

LEGENDARY? You are delusional! The only thing legendary about this chick is how legendarily ugly she is. Not only on the outside, but on the inside as well. She is a horrid beast!

this sucks! omg (N)

If you missed the rope thrown out you, it’s your loss. This is set to too fast a pase to really soak in all that is contained in it, or maybe it was designed to be that way. Regardless, if you only see the surface your missing an ocean of complexingly personal questions and their hopeful answers

lol, look at all the jealous down-raters

I wanted to see this for myself and my verdict is that it’s complete crap. The song and the video are simply self-indulgent and one-dimensional. Very disappointed and I am a fan.

She needs to take a long break, stop being so over-exposed and re-charge her creativity. I suggest two years. It’s not like she can’t afford the long vacation.

oh my gosh, wats up wit gaga music? Its just not ta same when she first started out. Not happy.

The only good judas is Judas Priest ^^



Ardi Indonesia @ 05/06/2011 at 9:11 am

Love the song
Love the video!
Gaga is so far beyond a popstar, she is a legend



Truthsayer @ 05/06/2011 at 9:18 am

Funny if you look at the times of people’s comments how most of the negatives were posted literally a minute apart, looks like most are probably from one person.


Actualy could careless for britey or christina. The video and song is pure trash. Thats the reason is not even top 10!—sweety


“Fake Beauty spot” LOL Madonna already did that too! BIZARRO MADONNA

garbage! so it’s over with lady gaga.

She’s such a rebel attention *****!

Idiotas todos vosotros, ignorantes mea culos

Is she suggesting that Judas betraid on Jesus because he was in love with Mary Magdalene?which is supposed to have been actually Jesus wife..

this woman needs deliverance, ‘Mary Magdalene’ who does she think she is? she is just trying to get attention by being controversial…head to church gaga

RICK GONZALEZ is the name of the actor who plays Jesus and yes he is yummy! Norman Reedus plays Judas.

why are people so negative?! if you dont have anything nice to say, dont say it. why spread hate.

anyway, I think the video is pretty great!

Residential Troll @ 05/06/2011 at 5:55 pm

Look its lady gag gag again.

gaga thinks she’s a godess but she’s not. this video SUCKS big time!

she is copying herself(bad romance)

she is copying herself(bad romance)

SirGaga8694 @ 05/12/2011 at 11:21 am

wow, you guys are so rude. what has she ever done to you? nothing!! so do us all a favor and stfu. if you dont agree with her and her art, the dont bother sharing your lame ass opinions. im sure yall have yalls own taste in music, and im sure its not the same as mine, but i dont go research someone i cant stand just to make an ass out of my self. so stop doing it! if you honestly think she is going to disappear or stop her work bc of a few haters, then you must be dumb as hell. she has got you talking, meaning that she is doing exactly what was planned. weather you love or hate her you still talk and thats why shes so famous. thanks , love you gaga (:

SirGaga8694 @ 05/12/2011 at 11:28 am

@Corey since 1990: shes worked on this album way way longer than any other, almost 2 years. this album is going to be a hit. and yes ALBUM OF THE CENTURY.
