Lady Gaga and her team took the weekend to work on the video for “Judas,” the singer’s second single off her May release, Born This Way . With little known about the clip other than that it is co-directed by Gaga and her creative director, Laurieann Gibson , Gaga and her cohorts all teased the shoot on Twitter over the weekend.
Early Sunday, Mother Monster herself shared that she’s quite proud of the video. She tweeted, “Directing Judas video with my sister @boomkack is the most exciting artistic moment of my career. It’s the greatest work we’ve done. Day 2.”
Her faithful stylist, Thierry Mugler creative director Nicola Formichetti, kept fans abreast all weekend, tweeting on Saturday, “Just finished shooting our incredible day 1. We are so blessed.”
On Sunday, he shared that the crew has been busy working on the video in Los Angeles, where Gaga recently played some shows on her Monster Ball Tour. “Good mornin’ LA! It was magical yesterday. so excited for our day2!!!!!!!!!!@ladygaga @BoomKack @TheValGarland #judas.”
Makeup artist Val Garland added, “It’s going to be a very GaGalicious day here in LaLa Land …. Remarkably I feel amazing and GaGGing for gorgeousness …..”
By the time Monday morning rolled in, Formichetti let all the little monsters know that the last frame had been shot. “Just finished shooting the most amazing video/movie of all time!! Totally in love with JUDAS baby,” he wrote.
Even Gaga’s beau, Luc Carl, couldn’t contain his excitement about what he describes as “bad ass.” “Breaking rules once again,” he wrote on Twitter.
For those wanting to know more about all things “Judas,” Gaga plans to share more in a video she’s posting on Tuesday. “GAGAVISION no.41 coming, at midnight TUES. Filming and editing it myself. Will announce JUDAS release!” she tweeted. “Feels like the first time, monsters.”
