In an interview, Gaga said that the song was based on the idea of being in love with the “worst guy” she’s ever met — her way of explaining a troubled past.
Pros: IMPO, when Gaga says “I’m still in love with Judas, baby” she is referring to bad influences — perhaps even, Satanic influences — she still wants to be a part of the “dark side” and she can’t help her feeling that way. Sacrilidgious themes always score bonus points with me, too (sarilidge in the sense that using biblical names is usually shunned upon, not to mention her love for Judas = Satan). I like the way the song sounds, it has a good dance feel to it.
Born this way, on the other hand, I loathe.
Cons: Appeals strongly to a Christian majority. And I still think the whole album sounds a bit too preacher-y. Too madonna. #Justsayin.
Overall, there is no definite line between good and evil. Gaga is telling the world that it’s OK not to choose one over the other — even though her album cover and subliminal messages in videos tell differently.
P.S. Today is the Day of Silence, a day where straight individuals recognize the struggle against bullying in the LGBT community. It makes sense that she would release the song today for that reason.
