Lady Gaga - Gaga Denies Judas Video Is Blasphemous

Lady Gaga has downplayed the religious aspects of the video for her latest single Judas, insisting she had no plans to launch an "attack" on the Christian faith.
The star revealed the promo for the second single off her Born This Way album on Thursday (05May11), and the controversial star immediately came under fire from religious groups for its imagery.
The video shows Gaga as Mary Magdalene, who is embroiled in a modern-day love triangle with Jesus and his betrayer, Judas, with Christ's disciples represented by leather-wearing, motorcycle-riding Hell's Angels.
But the Poker Face superstar, who was brought up Catholic, is baffled by the furore around the promo - insisting she never meant to cause offence by using the iconic imagery of her religion.
She tells Mtv.com, "In my opinion, the only controversial thing about this video is that I'm wearing Christian Lacroix and Chanel in the same frame. This video is not meant to be an attack on religion. I respect and love everyone's beliefs. I'm a religious and spiritual person who's obsessed with religious art. I'm obsessed with it."
