Lady GaGa's 'Born This Way' Censored In Malaysia
Some lyrics from the track have been removed for being "pro-gay"...
Lady GaGa latest single Born This Way has been censored by radio stations in Malaysia for its "pro-gay" lyrics.
According to The Associated Press, broadcasters in the Asian country have removed parts of the song, with fears that certain sections could be seen as offensive.
One particular line that has been axed is the lyric: "No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered life, I'm on the right track, baby."
Speaking of the decision to censor the track, a spokesperson for AMP Radio Networks told AP: "(Those lyrics) may be considered as offensive when viewed against Malaysia's social and religious observances."
They added: "The issue of being gay, lesbian or (bisexual) is still considered as a 'taboo' by general Malaysians."
In other GaGa news, the Bad Romance hitmaker has teamed up with Google for a special Q&A session, where her fans get the chance to interview her.
Explaining the concept to her Little Monsters via a video link, Lady G claimed: "Do you have something that you always wanted to know about me or maybe you have questions about my fashion love or even the kind of things I search for on Google,"
The 24-year old added: "Well, now is your chance I'll let you know when it goes up, and remember, you're all amazing and I love you so, so much. I'll see you soon. You were born this way."
