Lady Judas

from the New York Daily News

Lady Gaga’s ‘Judas’ song and music video deemed blasphemous, sparks outrage from Catholic League

Lady Gaga's new song 'Judas' has some religious groups up in arms.

Lady Gaga is no stranger to drumming up controversy – and this time, the eccentric singer has upset members of the Catholic faith.

The 25-year-old’s new song “Judas” was leaked onto the Internet Friday, and has since angered religious figures for its lyrics’ blasphemous tone in which Gaga proclaims she is “in love with Judas.”

The buzzed-about song, and forthcoming music video in which Gaga portrays Mary Magdalene and actor Norman Reedus stars as Judas, includes lyrics such as: “I want to love you/but something’s pulling me away from you/Jesus is my virtue, and Judas is the demon I cling to/ I’m just a holy fool/ oh baby he’s so cruel/ but I’m still in love with Judas, baby.”

Not surprising, the eyebrow-raising lyrics about the apostle who betrayed Jesus have already angered the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights.
