Lady Gaga released the promo of “Judas", the second single of her album 'Born This Way' yesterday (May 5), in spite of the criticisms from some religious groups. She downplayed the religious aspect of the song and said that she didn't mean to attack on religion.
“In my opinion, the only controversial thing about this video is that I'm wearing Christian Lacroix and Chanel in the same frame," MTV quotes the singer, who exposed her jocular side. “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. I believe I was put on this earth to cause a ruckus," she added.
It may be recalled that the Catholic community was not happy with the portrayal of Mary Magdalene in the video and some even call it 'blasphemous" antics. Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, alleged that the singer is trying to boost her career by spoiling Christian beliefs.
