Gibson has choreographed the videos for “Telephone”, “Alejandro”, and “Born This Way” but felt like the idea for “Judas” crossed the boundaries of religious blasphemy.

The video for “Judas” shows the singer take on the Bible by portraying Mary Magdalene opposite actor Norman Reedus as Judas Iscariot, and Gibson admits she flinched at some of the ideas which were put forward in meetings about the promo.

She admitted that she was about to quit if it wasn’t for a compromise on the final idea for the video in the meeting.

She added, “I do believe God inspired and worked on everyone’s heart, but yes. I would have been like, ‘Good bye, I ain’t doing it. No way.’ But the place it came to is really magical. And she’s dancing her face off.”

Catholic right activists are already on fire because of the concept for the video and they have condemned Gaga for her use of religious imagery.
