As reported this week, Lady Gaga is set to debut the music video to her song, “Judas”, on “American Idol” May 2. Even though the video hasn’t even come out yet, the religious nature of the video has already offended Catholic religious groups. We’ve already heard from Gaga’s choreographer, Laurieann Gibson, who said the video is spiritually powerful. Now, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting via MSN Entertainment in Canada that Gaga has explained more about the video.

“The theme of the video and the way that I wanted to aesthetically portray the story was as a motorcycle Fellini movie, where the apostles are revolutionaries in a modern-day Jerusalem,” she said. “And I play Mary Magdalene, leading them into the town where we meet Jesus, and I leave the rest for you to see.”

As for the nature of the video itself, the singer said the video isn’t meant to offend. According to Gaga, the video is “meant more to celebrate faith than it is to challenge it.” The debut date is fastly approaching, so the viewing public will be able to judge for themselves if the video achieved its goal.
