"I don't view the video as a religious statement. I view it as social statement. I view it as a cultural statement." We'll get more into that when Giuliana Rancic sits down with the pop star on E! News tomorrow (at 7 and 11:30 p.m. ET/PT) for a revealing, in-depth interview. (The complete, half-hour interview will be available on E! Online Friday at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.)
All hot-button content aside, we gotta say the video, codirected by Gaga and Laurianne Gibson (of E!'s The Dance Scene), is probably Mother Monster's most suprisingly traditional music video to date. The religious imagery isn't even as over-the-top as "Alejandro."
It's just straight-up dancing and cool costumes, which is sometimes all you want from pop videos.
Tell us what you think of Gaga's "Judas" and then come back here tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT to get her full, uncut interview with Giuliana.
