Video: Lady Gaga – Judas

Dust off your bible, break out the rosary beads and get ready for some heavy-handed religious imagery… Lady Gaga’s Judas has arrived!

Unfortunately it’s not in the same bonkers league as her sci-fi vagina epic, Born This Way, but it’s still worth a closer look.

Judas bikers

So the theme of this video is 'bikers'... expect plenty of leather jackets, boots, a paunche or two, some questionable personal hygiene and crusty beards.

Lady Gaga and Jesus

I'm hazarding a guess that this chap might be Jesus - his crown o' thorns is a dead giveaway.


Say hello to Judas (aka that man from The Walking Dead). He's mean, moody and one of those dangerous, sexy types your mother warned you about.

John's backside

No-one wants to look at your arse crack John, put it away!

Shakira's Waka Waka

Shakira pops in to provide some much needed Waka Waka.

Lady Gaga's Shoop Shoop shuffle

Loving the semi-ridiculous / semi-amazing choreography. This finger clicking, side-step shuffle is clearly pinched from The Shoop Shoop Song.

Lady Gaga's Jesus

Is it any wonder Gaga's got a thing for Judas when Jesus goes around looking this miserable? BLOODY CHEER UP!

Lady Gaga loves string

Officially the most fascinating bit of string in pop history.

Lady Gaga gets drenched

LOOK OUT! Symbolic drenching inbound!

Lady Gaga in the bath

Judas pours a can of beer over Gaga's arse. I'm sceptical this was actually in The Old Testament.

This is Gaga getting a proper biblical stoning. Likely reasons include: that hair, that dress, the Born This Way album artwork.

In conclusion… better than Alejandro, not as good as Bad Romance and probably not worth the church getting their cassocks in a twist over.

Can we get on with the album release now?

    I really didn’t like this song to start with but hearing it along with the vid, it is growing on me. And I do quite enjoy the dance routine.

    I always tend to like a song more once I’ve see the video that goes with it – no idea why!? I love the choreography too, it constantly wavers between ridiculous and amazing! I’m deffo going to be busting out these moves at my next visit to the discotheque!

    Great analysis of a ludicrously epic video.

    Although I presume that you won’t be busting out the moves whilst gyrating with motorcyclists who represent apostles. Dressed in lingerie covered in religious imagery.

    And then Christ and His apostles, wearing jewel-encrusted leather jackets, made their way down the motorway. When they arrived at the chapel Mary Magdalene stripped down to her underwear and professed her love for Judas. A group of dancers turned up out of nowhere and started belly-dancing, fulfilling the famous prediction made by Prophet Shakira. Mary then got into a bathtub with Jesus & Judas. The Lord then said in a booming voice “Mary, I warned you about not seeking attention but you disobeyed me.” And for that reason, Mary Magdalene got stoned to death and Judas never betrayed anyone. This rendered the song “Judas” by Lady Gaga, which refers to him as “cruel”, rather pointless.
