Have you seen Lady Gaga’s new “Judas” video? As always, she’s managed to stir up some controversy surrounding the content of the video which some describe as Illuminati references and underhanded blasphemous connotations. In the video, she plays Mary Magdalene who is caught in a love triangle between Judas and the Son Of God.

Gaga recently sat down with E! News and explained that the song isn’t about religion at all, but about an ex-boyfriend. Though the religious references came from that experience, she explains it’s much more symbolic than literal.

She says:

“It’s essentially about me going back to an ex-boyfriend and still being in love with someone that betrayed me, someone that was bad for me. That’s really what the video is, the video is a metaphor for forgiveness, and for betrayal and darkness being one of the challenges in life as opposed to being a mistake. The name Judas is something that bears such an intense connotation. I often feel misunderstood, and I think my fans do too. I think [the video] liberates the word in a lot of  ways…takes it out of the negative and into the positive.”

“I try to write from a really honest place when I write pop music, and then carry the message of the song into a more deep and more symbolic visual. That’s really what the video is, the video is a metaphor for forgiveness, and for betrayal and darkness being one of the challenges in life as opposed to being a mistake.

“The name Judas is something that bears such an intense connotation. I often feel misunderstood, and I think my fans do. I think [the video] liberates the word in a lot of ways…takes it out of the negative and into the positive.”

“I figured if I’m gonna get stoned for making this video, I’ll stone myself first.”

Choreographer and director of ‘Judas,’ Laurieann ‘Boomkat’ Gibson, spoke with The Hollywood Reporter describing the video as “the new Jerusalem,”:

“It went through several changes and late-night debates because at one point, there were two completely different views and I was like, ‘Listen, I don’t want lightning to strike me! I believe in the gospel and I’m not going there.’ And it was amazing because to have that conversation about salvation, peace and the search for the truth in a room of non-believers and believers, to me, that was saying God is active in a big way. And the place that it came to is surreal. We don’t touch on things that we have no right touching upon, but the inspiration and the soul and idea that out of your oppression, your darkness, your Judas, you can come into the marvelous light. So it’s about the inspiration and to never give up… We’ve created a new Jerusalem.”
