Gaga's New Hit Offends

Just two days before the start of holy Week, Lady Gaga’s new single “Judas” leaked onto the internet. Needless to say, many Catholics aren’t exactly pleased about this song, nor it’s not-so-timely release—in fact, most are down-right outraged. The song lyrics exert Gaga’s love for Judas, who is infamously known for betraying Jesus: "Jesus in 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.” Crazy enough, Gaga, herself, was even raised Catholic. She seems to be taking after artists such as Madonna and Sinead O’Connor, both of whom also adopted offending religious innuendos and imagery in their performances and videos. Some of Lady Gaga’s previous acts were offending—such as dressing as a nun and swallowing a rosary on stage—but her new single portraying her “love” for Judas tops that event in the eyes of many viewers, according to the New York post.
