Lady Gaga should consider “Controversy” as her next album title. After flaunting yet another meat dress and being banned from performing in Indonesia after Islamic protests, she was threatened to be prohibited in the Philippines.
A group of Christian youths from the Philippines organized a protest on Friday in hopes of canceling Lady Gaga’s upcoming concerts for the following week in Pasay City.
The youths were primarily angered at Lady Gaga’s song “Judas,” which they feel mocks Jesus Christ. However, their attempts were unsuccessful and the show will go on.
“Although we respect artistic and musical expressions, I won##Q##t allow anyone or any group to provide acts which may be questionable in a way at any venue under my jurisdiction,” Pasay City Mayor Antonino Calixto said in a statement. “We reminded the producers of Lady Gaga##Q##s concert that the show and the event as a whole shall not exhibit any nudity or lewd contact which may be offensive to morals and good customs.”
Lady Gaga’s production team released a statement in response to the situation saying, “the performance of Lady Gaga will not pose a threat to the general public##Q##s sense of morality and conduct—especially the youth—as these groups have warned.”
We wish Mother Monster luck (and safety) during the remainder of her international tour!
