For most folks inclined to hate Gaga, I think she spoon feeds them material in her song Judas. Once people hear the following lyric, I bet many will nod with a self-satisfied grin and say "told ya so!":
"In the most Biblical sense,
I am beyond repentance
Fame hooker, prostitute wench, vomits her mind..."
But is there more to this song than sheer shock? Perhaps. I think a lot will be revealed when we see the video that goes with the song. But, in lieu of the video, I will say this:
The charitable interpretation is that she is exploring her own deep struggle between trying to follow the love and compassion of Jesus, while being constantly treated as a traitor and whore by religious insiders. Thus she identifies strongly with both Jesus (as a follower of his way) and Judas (as a maligned traitor figure). I think this is represented in the following lyric:
"Jesus is my virtue / Judas is the demon I cling to"
In this interpretation, she has a deep compassion for Judas because she deeply identifies with his plight. To her, he is a misunderstood, misidentified traitor figure who was actually doing his best to follow Jesus (like her).
That's the charitable interpretation. The uncharitable interpretation is that she created a catchy dance tune with ambiguous and controversial religious lyrics, and then released it as close to Easter as possible to maximize publicity and sales.
My final interpretation will depend a lot on the video, and the iconography she uses in it. If it seems to have some substance and introspective depth to it, I would incline toward the charitable interpretation. If it's just a bunch of skin and shock, I will incline toward the uncharitable.
