Judas is a song by American recording artist Lady Gaga, taken from her upcoming second studio
album Born This
Way (2011). The song was released worldwide on April 15, 2011, four days
ahead of its scheduled release, by Interscope Records.
The music video for the song was filmed in early April, co-directed by Gaga and Laurieann Gibson and co-starring Norman Reedus. It includes a Biblical storyline where Reedus plays Judas Iscariot and Gaga plays Mary Magdalene. Prior to its release, the Catholic League condemned Gaga for the alleged use of religious imagery and her role as Magdalene in the video.
