Music video

[change | change source]

The music video for the song was controversial, like Gaga's video for "Alejandro", because it contained religious imagery. Gaga is shown dressed as Mary Magdalene in the video and depicted riding on the back of a motorcycle that an actor portraying Jesus is driving. The Catholic League condemned the video.
