Lady Gaga is devastated over her songs leaking online.
Her latest single, “Judas,” was rushed out last Friday after it leaked online.
“‘Judas’ is leaking, it’s like a slow death,” she said on her GagaVision YouTube channel Wednesday. Watch below. “They [the leaks] were tearing at the song, first it was the arm and then it was the liver.”
She also describes her songwriting process as “15 minutes of vomiting and then days, weeks, months, years of fine tuning.”
Still, she admonishes, “you must honor your vomit.”
The song has come under fire from religious groups.
Bill Donahue, president of The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, said in a statement over the weekend: “She is trying to rip off Christian idolatry to shore up her talentless, mundane and boring performances. Another ex-Catholic whose head is turned around… Is this the only way to jet up her performance? This isn’t random, we are getting closer to Holy Week and Easter.”
Gaga plays Mary Magdalene in the forthcoming video. Her creative director, Laurieann Gibson (who was behind the Grammy egg), told The Hollywood Reporter that “Judas” wasn’t meant to offend.
“It went through several changes and late-night debates because at one point, there were two completely different views and I was like, ‘Listen, I don’t want lightning to strike me! I believe in the gospel and I’m not going there.’ And it was amazing because to have that conversation about salvation, peace and the search for the truth in a room of non-believers and believers, to me, that was saying God is active in a big way. And the place that it came to is surreal.”
