Judas (4:12)

Cover of Born This Way

From Born This Way and 11 other releases

“Judas” is a song by Lady Gaga from her third album, “Born This Way”. The song title was revealed through Vogue magazine. “Judas” is set to be the second single from the album. The song was registered on Gaga’s BMI on March 18, 2011. Gaga announced via Twitter that she will announce the release date during the 41st Transmission Gagavision on Tuesday, April 5, 2011. She officially anounced that Judas would be released on the Easter Week, April 19th, exactly 4 days before Judas betray Jesus Christ, however, the song was released 4 days earlier than scheduled due to leaks.

Gaga planned to do 3 teasers in 3 days until April 19th but all planned was aborted.

The meaning for the song is described as a woman in love with a man who betrays her.
However, during interview with Google, she also mentioned that “It’s about leaving your darkness behind in order to come into the light, I have a lot of things that have haunted me from my past - choices, men, drug abuse, being afraid to go back to New York, confronting old romances - and Judas represents, for me, something that is bad for me that I can’t escape. I keep going back and forth between the darkness and the light in order to understand who I am.”

And Eric Henderson from Slant was saying in his review that to read her Biblical parable as a simple endorsement of the Holy Gospel is simplistic, and misses the central point: that Gaga’s heart belongs to the Good Book’s bad guys.
