Lady Gaga’s song Judas was written about an ex-boyfriend of hers!
Just days after she announced her split from ex-boyfriend Luc Carl, she has revealed that the song was about a lover who broke her heart.
The video contains biblical themes as she plays the role of Mary Magdalene with Jesus and Judas in a biker gang. Christian groups bashed the singer for the imagery in the video. Now, Gaga says that the religious overtones in the video hide a deeper personal meaning behind the lyrics.
In a new interview, she said, “I’ve had a lot of ex-boyfriends betray me – a**holes, we all have them. I began to write a song about an ex-lover who betrayed me, who loved heavy metal music.”
She went on to reveal, “And then I thought about the biblical implications and how Judas was the betrayer. And once I thought about what I wanted to do with the video. Judas didn’t really betray Christ because he was part of the prophecy. So I thought a more liberating way to tackle the message of the song – we attack the idea by saying my ex betray me and this person haunts me, but I forgive them.”
Did Luc Carl betray her????
Her new album, Born This Way, is officially out today!
