Lady Gaga’s New Single “Judas” Shocks and Dismays

posted by S. Russ

Another week, another burst of Lady Gaga news, and another burst of comments from the Lady Gaga lovers and haters.  Happy Monday!

First of all, she released the cover of her new album which is pictured above.  Yes, that is the real cover.  It’s a… Gagacycle?  It is so eye-catchingly ugly that it is hard to believe it is an actual album cover.  Is she trying to hint that she is going to be in the new Transformers movie?  I always thought “Born This Way” had a deep meaning, but apparently she is just trying to justify being born as half-motorcycle, half-human.  Yeah, I don’t get it either.

Secondly, her new single “Judas” comes as a timely launch on Easter weekend, and you can hear it here.  The video is evidently so offensive that it is angering Catholic groups who haven’t even seen it yet!  Man, that must be one offensive video!  As far as the song, well, I admit that I find it’s message confusing.  I listened and read through the lyrics a couple of times, and I’m no closer to understanding what she is trying to say.  Is she trying to make Judas more of a symphathetic character?  Is she saying that Judas is awesome?  Is she saying that Judas is an idiot?  I really don’t know, all I know is that the song is annoying and uninspired.

That’s enough to keep me from listening.

What do you think?

Not having seen the video, either, which I assume will help interpret the lyrics, I’m puzzled at the “Biblical sense” in which she feels “beyond repentance.” There’s not much that is beyond repentance, and I wonder if she’s not a harsher critic of herself than the “something” that’s “pulling [her] away” from her demons.

This song is about ENDING religion, especially Christianity. She would rather anoint Judas’ feet rather than Jesus’. She desires a world where Judas won. She wants to “bring down” the lion of Judah and replace Him with Judas.

Combine this with her previous work. Her butterfly symbology is an allusion to Project Monarch. Her logo a reference to electroshock therapy. Her name itself represents the culmination of brainless speech.

Lady Gaga has an agenda that seeks the eradication of Christianity and a hearkening of Darkness. She attack from all fronts: science (brainwashing), occult (all seeing eye), demonic (blatant references), sexual (everything I’ve been previously talking about), and religion (Judas as the worldly antagonist to Christ).

Her symbolism is deep, esoteric and spiritual. At the same time she makes songs like “Just Dance” which is about being totally numb. This paradoxical aspect of Lady Gaga is something that you all need to understand. Mark my words, she views this latest single as a LOVE SONG TO THE ANTICHRIST.

I tend to agree with Puppy. If you closely analyze her videos, most of them have heavy occult references, and it seems she is becoming darker and darker. I think she chose the freaky picture for the cover because it symbolizes what she feels is inside of her…which I’m thinking based on the cover…is a demon. It’s what’s inside her and what she represents. I believe that in time, she is going to become increasingly evil, beyond blatant and extreme, and she’s going to spiral out of control, then crash and burn. I believe her Fame Monster is ironically going to devour her.
