Lady Gaga 'Judas' Official Music Video will premiere on 'American Idol' this May 2, 2011!
From whisperings that Lady Gaga's 'Judas' music video would push the envelope more than ever, we were more than surprised to hear that the titillating video would premiere during a live broadcast of 'American Idol, according to MTV.
Interscope Records announced that the video would be released May 2 during the talent show and according to Gaga's creative director, Laurieann Gibson, it promises to be nothing short of "groundbreaking."
In the video, Lady Gaga will play Mary Magdalene and actor, Norman Reedus, will play Judas. A concept that is reportedly a toned down version of the video's initial concept that was too religiously charged -- although Gaga playing the virgin Mary doesn't seem to be too much of a step back from the controversial original.
Nonetheless, every Scotty McCreery-crushing tween will undoubtedly get an eyeful of Gaga whether they [or their parents] like it or not.
Gibson, who told MTV that the video "is ultimately a representation of [she and Gaga's] true bond," said that the video is "really going to shock the world."
A few weeks ago, Gibson admitted that she initially considered walking away from the video project because it was potentially offensive. Although the creative duo have apparently toned down the video, if it wasn't the least bit controversial, it wouldn't be Gaga.
