She's Still in Love With Judas, Baby

Another couple of months,another Lady Gaga short film.Thankfully she's calmed down a smidge since the epic EPICNESS of "Born This Way"which was messy MESSYNESS.

Sometimes it's good to have a simple concept and just execute it well.

In this case its Christ & Disciples as biker gang with Gaga as the Holy Fool / Biker Chick who can't choose between her two (archetypal) men,saintly Jesus or bad boy Judas (Norman Reedus!) who is so rebellious he demands that his name be pronounced with extra syllables.Speaking of.Lovethe tongue-tripped lyric bridge.

In the most Biblical sense,
I am beyond repentance
Fame hooker,prostitute wench.

Video:B+That Bit w/ the Lipstick:A+The Break:D+(video breaks are tired.just dance!) Song:B

P.S.TANGENT TIME:  I'm totes enjoying Gaga's reign these past couple of years but,gotta say it,reallymissingMadonnatoday.Like as in more than usual.

Maybe it's because Madge looked flawless at the Met Costume Gala.Maybe it's because this is Gaga's "Like a Prayer"no?I'm not saying that in a negative 'ripping off Madonna' way people like to assume.I'm saying that as in this is the moment where the stars feel indestructable and poke at the religious people's eternally thin skin and risk their noisy wrath while making some sort of dance-ready point about the eternal internal spiritual war that's a universal part of being human".That moment.  "Like a Prayer"is Madonna's very best song (A+) in a discography with astounding number of viable options for that title.So that's probably how the pangs of missing are so acute.Excited for her directorial effortW.E.-- when will we see it?-- but could use more music real soon.It's been so long since "Hard Candy".Just one more record as fab as "Confessions on a Dance Floor",please!?Pleaseandthanks.

P.P.S.We now return you to your normally scheduled film programming.
