All the controversy over Lady Gaga’s new video for Judas seems like it was for nothing. Catholic League President, Bill Donahue, says the video never really steps over the line.
He said the video isn’t particularly endearing to Catholicism but he also said it never truly steps over the line.
“In her Judas video, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] plays fast and loose with Catholic iconography, and generates several untoward statements, but she typically dances on the line without going over it. Perhaps that is because the video is a mess. Incoherent, it leaves the viewer more perplexed than moved. The faux-baptismal scene is a curious inclusion, as is her apparent fondness for the Jesus character. But if anyone thinks the Catholic League is going to go ballistic over Lady Gaga’s latest contribution, they haven’t a clue about what really constitutes anti-Catholicism.”
Controversial, or not? Did people make a bigger deal out of this song and video because it was titled Judas?
