Leave it to Lady Gaga, no stranger to getting people talking as it is, to up the ante tenfold this weekend with a controversial new song about "Judas."

Told through the perspective of Mary Magdelene, the lyrics go like this:

"In the most Biblical sense / I am beyond repentance / Fame hooker, prostitute wench, vomits her mind / But in the cultural sense / I just speak in future tense / Judas kiss me if offensed / Or wear ear condom next time..."

Okay then ...

Gaga's creative director, Laurieann Gibson, who is religious herself, says they made sure to not offend anyone. Here's how she describes the song:

"It was amazing to have that conversation about salvation, peace and the search for the truth in a room of non-believers and believers, to me, that was saying God is active in a big way. And the place that it came to is surreal."

"We don't touch on things that we have no right touching upon, but the inspiration, the soul and idea that out of your oppression, your darkness, your Judas, you can come into the marvelous light. So it's about the inspiration and to never give up."

In conclusion, she says Lady Gaga has "created a new Jerusalem."

Has she? Tell us: What do you think of Gaga's "Judas"?

Lady Gaga does not mince words.

In the May issue of Harper's Bazaar, the provocative singer dishes about her failures in adapting to Hollywood. Despite being a self-proclaimed student of the art of fame, fitting in out in la-la land just wasn't in the cards, she says:

"I had all these number-one records. I had sold all these albums. It was sort of this turning point: Do I embrace Hollywood and assimilate to that culture?"

Not exactly.

GRAND, BABY: Lady Gaga heats up Harper's Bazaar.

"I put my toe in that water, and it was a Kegel-exercise vaginal reaction where I clenched and had to retract immediately," she says in a great metaphor.

What happened after that, you ask? "I ran furiously back to New York, to my old apartment, and I hung out with my friends, I went to the same bars."

And went back to the same bartender, Luc Carl!

With an episode titled "Born This Way," Glee is paying homage to Lady Gaga April 26. In a 90-minute episode, New Directions will perform her latest smash hit.

That week (the show's second episode back from hiatus), Mr. Schuester teaches the club a lesson about self-acceptance and embracing what makes us unique.

Thus the parallels with Gaga's anthem for those very themes:

While it makes sense that the show will have a finger on the pulse of the music world, some fans say it needs a new direction (pun intended) in its writing.

The perceived pursuit of hot tunes to shoehorn into episodes, rather of focusing on characters and writing that made the show a hit, is a frequent criticism.

Do you agree? Or do you love the hit Glee music tie-ins?

A somewhat contentious exchange with an anti-gay protester. An announcement of her new single's release. Typical day in the life of Lady Gaga - caught on tape!

In the latest edition of Gagavision - her YouTube video diary - The Lady is seen arguing with a Christian fundamentalist protester outside of one of her shows.

The picketer, who was doling out “get out of hell free” cards, was a bigot with a big gut who seemed to get a kick out of cutting off Gaga mid-sentence:

Despite spending hours of time lurking around her concert, the dude tried to act all unimpressed by the fact that he was talking to Lady Freaking Gaga.

Trying to find common ground, rather than seem adversarial, Lady Gaga told the guy, “I’m listening. You know we really believe in God at my show.”

“Well, your pervert ways don’t quite equate to what God is all about,” he replied. Asked to clarify, he eloquently said he meant “the homo stuff.”

Did Adam Lambert really pull a Christina Aguilera this week?

Celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton called in to the Morning Dish radio program yesterday and says he was present at Lady Gaga's 25th birthday party Sunday night, serving as a witness when the former American Idol finalist showed up "beyond drunk" and was asked to leave.

He was "super sloppy embarrassingly drunk," Hilton told the hosts.

Lambert reportedly wasn't even invited to the bash. He attended as a guest of the Scissor Sisters, who have been opening on tour for the artist.

A fellow party goer says Lambert was pounding on the walls and "acted like an animal. He kept jumping up on the tables and chairs and screaming. When they brought the cake out he tried to smear it in Gaga's face and put a doll from the cake in her mouth!"

Gaga eventually asked security to escort Adam away. He acknowledged his behavior on Twitter later in the week, writing on Wednesday:

"My hand still hurts. LoL. Was trying for celebratory gesture 4 gaga's B- piñata style...instead my fist is all bruised and la cita has a hole in the ceiling. #sloppy."

As proved to be the case for Aguilera, let's just hope this isn't the start of more troubling times ahead for Adam.

Katy Perry's new music video is for her song "E.T." But rather than Steven Spielberg's alien creation of decades past, she's channeling Lady Gaga and Avatar.

Or so it would appear in these promotional pics released by her label, Capitol, in advance of the video. Maybe with a little David Bowie thrown in there as well?

Click on the Katy Perry pictures below to enlarge some of her various looks for the video. Whatever she's going for, her style is out of this world (booo!) ...

Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga have lent their name and their words of encouragement to a great cause.

Both artists have recorded videos in which they send prayers and urge fans to donate whatever they can afford to the victims of this month's earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Bieber will also record a song for a CD whose proceeds will benefit those affected, while Lady Gaga's bracelets have raised $1.5 million for the crises.

Lady Gaga. Born This Way. Country edition?

Believe it. The pop star's hit single may or may not be stolen from various other acts, but this version is all her - and unlike you've ever heard her before.

The Mother Monster dropped the tune at midnight this morning. More laid-back and mellow than the original, it also features some new lyrics at the end.

Listen to Gaga go country, with her usual disco-thumping beats replaced by laconic guitars, beautiful harmonica and seriously soulful crooning, below ...

Is Rebecca Black is the worst singer in human history? Is "Friday" only "good" because it is so, SO beyond bad? Are you laughing at her, and loving it?

Lay off, says the spokesperson for all things cool, the Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga. In fact, we should bow down to this fledgling music star!

"I think it's fantastic," she in her recent Google interview. "I say Rebecca Black is a genius and anyone that's telling her she's cheesy is full of $h!t."

The Queen hath spoken. Consider yourself enlightened.
