Documenting the journey of a Cameroonian filmmaker
Gaga has the church up in arms again oh!
Her latest music video for her single ‘Judas’ has left christians around the world irate. She is seen dressed as Mary Magdalene while Jesus drives her about on a motorbike.
The lyrics include; Jesus is 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.’
In her defense, Gaga claimed that: “I don’t view the video as a religious statement, I view it as social statement. I view it as a cultural statement. It’s a metaphor. It’s not meant to be a biblical lesson.”
Social statement? Puh lease! If she wants to keep defending her videos as social statements, let her depict Mohammed riding on a camel in her next video… then we’ll talk about Social statement. Bollocks!
WHAT’S YOUR TAKE?
