Lady GaGa's South Korea Gig Given Over-18 Certificate
The country's media rating board has ruled no minors can attend the show...
Lady GaGa's first Born This Way Ball show in Seoul has been given an over-18 restriction by South Korea's Media Rating Board.
According to BBC News, GaGa's eccentric outfits, her "sexualised performances" and some of her songs were cited by the board as the reason for slapping such a high certification on the concert.
The BBC adds that in order to prevent anyone younger from attending, IDs will be checked on the door to enforce the strict policy.
It is only the second time that a pop performance has been given an over-18 restriction, with the decision apparently coming as "something of a shock" to the people of South Korea.
GaGa - who kicked off her world tour today (27th April) in the country - took to Twitter ahead of the show, stating: "Nervous for tonight. Hope I make little monsters happy and proud.
"This is a very special moment for Haus of GaGa. We thank you so much. Enjoy our music, fashion installations & pop performance art tonight."
She added: "I can you hear you Korea. I'm shaking."
