Judas Was a Biker and Gaga is His Bitch

Blend the musical talents of Micheal Jackson, the “bite my ass” attitude of Madonna and the “watch me piss off a bunch of parents” on stage persona of Marilyn Manson and you get Lady Gaga.

Throw in a few bad ass bikers and spend a vulgar amount of money and you have the music video for Judas.

If you can believe her twitter, Gaga says the video cost $10 million dollars and has more cameos than any music video in history.

What the hell?  Pardon our skepticism , but there’s nobody in our industry that commands a huge appearance fee, at least not anymore.   I’m sure she could’ve gotten almost any custom bike builder to show up for free if she asked nicely.

If the figure is true Judas would top Micheal Jackson’s video “Scream”  which cost 7 million, with  $53,000 of that going to breaking guitars.  Maybe Gaga trashed a few hundred motorcycles in the video.  As for the plot, according to MSNBC. Gaga said “I play Mary Magdalene leading them into the town where we meet Jesus and I will leave the rest for you to see. But it’s meant more to celebrate faith than it is to challenge it.”

Gaga tweeted (correction*  it was rumored) that she has 30,000 motorcyclists appearing in the video.  What?  Did she buy them all a new Sportster?  Maybe she’s becoming the Oprah of the music video world. “Ok everyone guess what?  Just for showing up for my video I’m giving you all a new motorcycle!” Lady Gaga the generous.  That’s a LOL moment if there ever was one.  Somehow I doubt she even shared her stash with the great unwashed nation but we weren’t invited so we can’t really say.

The 25-year-old entertainer directed the video with her creative director,Laurieann Gibson and it’s scheduled to debut tonight on E!  at 7pm and 11pm.

 

 

 

It’s Your Chance to Own a Rock Star’s Harley-Davidson

If you’ve got the cash, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.  Wear Slash’s clothes and ride his Harley-Davidson.

A house full of Saul Hudson’s,(aka Slash) personal belongings, including his 2007 Harley Davidson V-Rod VRSCAW Twin Racing Street Custom Cruiser which is expected to bring less than $10,000.  A steal for any Slash fanatic.

Of course if you get the bike you’ll need to dress the part and you’ll be able to bid on custom Marc Vachon leather motorcycle jackets, including one decorated in a Velvet Revolver “Libertad” theme which is expected to bring an estimated  $1,000-2,000.

If you miss out on the Hog, you can try for one of 14 guitars in the auction, or if you pockets are deep enough, jump in the bidding on his 1966 Corvette equipped with a big block 427 cubic inch V-8 engine with 435 horsepower and mated to a 4-speed manual transmission which Juliens Auction house estimates will fetch between $90,000-$100,000.

The Collection of Slash auction is scheduled to take place on March 26 in Beverly Hills California, and the auction house says that fans who attend the sale dressed as Slash will receive a free catalog. If you can’t make the auction, you can view the catalog here.
