  • JD

    I think this is her worst song ever, you can’t understand her and she just whines “OH and “AH” Gaga. Pathetic, I expected more

  • Reene

    This song sucks and so does Gaga I mean Madonna, no wait its Gaga wanna be Madonna.

  • AdonisPear

    ahah JD and Reene, you just wish you had someone standing by you like Gaga stands for us, her little monsters. Judas is going to be the newest world hit, face it. it was about time for an artist to show to the world how fake christianism’s history is. sorry there.

    • Nika

      “Christianism”? Yes, GaGa is indeed fortunate to have the support of intelligent, educated persons like yourself. It certainly makes her seem like an artist to be taken seriously when you stand up for her.

  • jessica

    The song has a good beat but I dont like that she is talking about Judus from the bible :S

  • Patrick

    I like that music beat shortly before the Jesus is my virtue lyric… rest of the song is quite repetitive and annoying.

  • TS

    I think the two comments about this song being terrible are wrong. If you actually listen to the words, it actually has nothing to do with religion. She uses the names “Judas” and “Jesus” as symbols….but I guess the people who left comments above hating the song don’t know what symbolism is…sorry I don’t have time to educate you. Great song Lady Gaga.

  • SK

    Definitely NOT music what Gaga brings to the radio; lately! Yes, a wannabe Madonna; “Papa Don’t Preach”, and now Gaga with “JUDAS” PLEASE.

  • Judas

    AMAZING, how can it be anti-religion if she says “Jesus is my virture”??? People are really stupid now-a-days. Gaga is a musical genius, and BETTER than Madonna

    • justme

      judas betrayed Jesus.. she isn’t praising Jesus.. she’s praising judas.. don’t call people stupid if you don’t even understand something yourself

  • Igar27

    This is actually a great song. This is one, if not her best song she’s done. It is Awesome!!!

  • Igar27

    you two are probably pressed Rihanna, Britney, Ke$ha, or Katy stans ;)

  • Eric

    I think this is an amazing song. Everyone will interpret it differently but this is how I interpreted it… Judas was the traitor of Jesus, and Gaga is using him as a metaphor for a lover she can’t trust. Yet she can’t pull herself away from him — “I’m just a Holy Fool, oh baby he’s so cruel/But I’m still in love with Judas, baby.”


    looks like another #1 hit for “GAGA” shes loves controvercy and i love the new song

    • Rufus

      Umm, no. The song sucks and it’s already falling off the charts.

      • Tonii

        Stop Hating . Gaga will always be on top .

  • Bill

    The song is just plain wrong, Ga Ga is just trying to mess with christians all over playing mind games saying you dont understand what the song is about.WRONG WRONG WRONG !!!! Dont mess with God other artists did and played games with the devil and lost big time.If you dont believe me check it out for yourself.

  • Christina

    I just want to say I hate the song…but you got to hand it to her she knows what she is doing as far as controversy goes. It is pleasing to HER that people (including myself) are talking about HER and HER MUSIC…that draws curiosity and sells records.

    • blondy6

      agree w/ Chrisinia….have not heard song though. i will keep seeing through the crap, and see her ART!

  • Travis

    Is it absolutely necessary for us the politically analyze and manipulate everything rather than just enjoy it? It’s an excellent song and she’s a great artist. It just so happens that her song is being released in close proximity to a religious holiday..there is nothing anti religious about this but the “shock” factor does make it a bit more seductive. The religious right will find any reason to persecute something for being anti religious or satanic or what-have-you.. This is art and great art at that and political correctness will be the death of this country.

    • justme

      excuse me but it does have to do with religion, or do the words judas and Jesus all of a sudden have no meaning in christianity? she’s praising judas.. not Jesus.. she’s praising the man who betrayed Jesus. you may not understand that but its offensive that you accuse others of purposely finding anything anti religious just to complain about. you may not believe but dont bash those who do.

  • Vicki

    I just want to thank you for announcing what time you were going to play this awful song. At least I knew when to change the channel.

  • Aurora Thornton

    lady gaga is a fraud , Lady gaga is only and act she is fake satanist ,Judas Iscariot wants nothing to do with her , and her music sucks like allways
    And all she doe’s is parades herself around gays to sell her lame music.

  • shelly

    people who think it is offensive are ignorant i am a christian. I think it is sending a great message everyone has that Judas in their life that they want to break free from and that is exactly what this song is about. Letting go of evil to come into the light

  • manny

    this is one of her best songs!!!full of meaning, dance beats, and amazing vocals!!!people are just haters!this is totally gaga!and im proud of her. she has evolved in a couple of years unlike other pop divas

  • Omega

    One of her best songs ever!
    Just enjoy the song and stop talking about religion. It s just an awesome song by Gaga :)


    SOY LATINO, LADY GAGA ES LO MEJOR DEL UNIVERSO!!!!!!!!!! ES DIOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Oi_Yuri

    I’ve loved Judas, much better than Born This Way :D

  • Scott

    Wow. I really like this song. The chorus is amazing.
    I think this song ranks up there with Poker Face and Bad Romance.

  • hannah


  • gagamediocrity

    Her worst song, definitely let the fame get to her head, smoked too much pot and became complacent with her songwriting.

    The people who say this is her best song, you guys are brainwashed and need to wake up.
