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.
The new Transparent Paint Guard Kit for Saddlebag Lids (P/N 11100028, $79.95) from Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories is designed to protect saddlebag lids from boot scuffs, road debris, and scratching keys and jacket zippers. The four pieces of crystal-clear material protect the paint on the lids without changing the look of the bike. Minor scuffs and scratches are disguised due to the optical properties of the material. The application process is similar to that of tinted window film, and the material can be removed and replaced when it is no longer cosmetically appealing. Fits 1993-later Touring models with Color-Matched Hard Saddlebags. Not for use on leather-covered bags.

Each year the Harley-Davidson stockholder’s meeting heralds the “unofficial” start of spring in the Milwaukee area, and for the past two years, the HD faithful have celebrated that event at the annual meeting in their iron and steel church, The Harley-Davidson museum.
But, this year Harley was shut out of their own museum and will be forced to hold their stockholders meeting at the Frontier Airlines Center instead.
According to published reports, another group had already secured the museum’s meeting room for the April 30th date.
“We couldn’t get the space,” Harley-Davidson spokesman Bob Klein told the Milwaukee Business Journal, “There is another group that booked the site.”
While most shareholder meetings of corporations are small events, with few attendees other than management, Harley-Davidson’s annual meeting is larger, with several hundred stockholders riding in from all over the USA.
Klien told the Milwaukee Business Journal he expects this year’s crowd to be about average.
When it comes to showing their support, Georgia motorcyclists choose to put aside politics and just ride.
Close to a thousand motorcyclists turned out last weekend to honor slain Georgia State Patrol Trooper Chadwick LeCroy in the first Line of Duty ride in Atlanta.
O Gary Buffington of the Rough Neck Motorcycle Club told local television station Fox 5, “This is absolutely phenomenal for us, we were hoping and praying for 300 to 500 bikes and from what we can tell we’ve got a little over 700 bikes here right now.”
Other motorcyclists attending said this ride wasn’t the proper place to voice their opposition to the State Patrol checkpoint policy and that while they may disagree with the checkpoints, they were able to set that aside and ride to show their support for the slain trooper and donate to the Corporal Chad LeCroy Family Memorial Fund.
