If you’ve been avoiding watching Gaga’s new “Judas” video so as not to get the song stuck in your head, this post is for you! Also, for everyone who would like to examine this body of work without thinking about whatever it was she was trying to do with the religious imagery. This isn’t about religion, or thinking, frankly — it’s about looking, reacting, dissecting, and comparing her work to other divas’ past videos. We’re getting a mash-up of Britney’s “Circus” and “Til the World Ends” with a dash of “Slave for You” — and “Like a Prayer,” of course, for the requisite Madonna reference. Onward for slides of Gaga’s every look from the “Judas” video.
