Lady GaGa: 'Judas'

By
Lady GaGa - 'Judas' single cover
Released on Friday, Apr 15 2011

It takes a lot to be offended by a song before you've even heard it, but such was the case among Christian extremists when Lady GaGa released the lyrics to 'Judas' a couple of months ago. Proclaiming her love for a man who betrayed one of the world's most iconic religious figures was undoubtedly risky, but rather than gasping in dismay, our excitement levels were instead raised to extreme.

"When he comes to me I am ready/ I'll wash his feet with my hair if he needs," she sing-speaks over a RedOne-helmed, 'Bad Romance'-style sledge hammering beat with a bassline dirtier than laundry day after The Monster Ball. What follows is a chorus so blasphemously camp that it's worthy of Eurovision - a Scooch-meets-Lordi affair that, unsurprisingly, takes a few listens to get your head around. Thankfully, we can confirm that it's worth the effort.
