Lady Gaga: Judas video is a social not religious statement
Lady Gaga insists her new video is not religious.
The eccentric singer has come under fire for her portrayal of Mary Magdalene in the promotional clip which accompanies her new single 'Judas' but she insists she is not mocking Christianity.
She told E!: "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."
Meanwhile, DJ White Shadow - who produced the singer's hit 'Born This Way' - has blasted critics of the track who have claimed it is a rip-off of Madonna's 'Express Yourself', arguing the charts are full of artists copying one another and mimicking Gaga's style.
He ranted: "I think it was bullst to be honest. I guess there are a hundred songs that you could put a pitch shift and a BPM (beats per minute) change on and loop and make them sound like anything.
"Actually there are five songs out that are exactly the same song, on the radio at the same time. Right now. Why doesn't anyone ever bring that up? That's a fing felony.
"How many people have been copying Gaga since she came out? Oh, I have that answer: everyone.
"Have you seen all the lightning bolts painted on faces, or the one hand eye cover-ups during photos?
"How about the fact that there was barely any dance music on the radio until Just Dance came out? Come on motherf**ers, let's keep it real here.
"If we are going to talk about who is chasing who, I think we all know the answer to that."Posted on 5 May 2011 16:15 to category : Music News
