Who are you trying to get crazy with, ese? Don't you know I'm loco?

Even though the song is revoltingly bad, Lady Gaga's "Judas" video is by far my favourite of her offerings so far. The New Testament/ Chola aesthetic works on every level and the shots of Gaga and Jesus have a stunning tableau vivant quality.

Gwen Stefani also rocked the chola/ chicana vibe in her stupendous "Luxurious" video.

A friend tried to describe this video to me before I had seen it, and I remember she used the phrase 'a plethora of piñatas'. This remains one of my favourite groups of words ever.

Judas is WAY better than Born This Way was (song wise).

I was disappointed not to see the Givenchy crown of thorns though....budget cuts?

Oh man I so don't agree re song - that disco chorus kills my bones. You are SO right, however, about the crown. I actually thought it (the crown) was very Baz Luhrmann in a good way, but now that you've brought the Givenchy to my attention it just seems absurd!
