Boo! GaGa's Born This Way Gets Banned In Lebanon

Filed under: Music MinutePolitikSad SadLady GaGa

born this way banned in lebanon

Not cool, Lebanon!

Lady GaGa's Born This Way may be the fastest-selling album of the year so far, but that's not stopping the government of Lebanon from banning the album from stores.

According to reports, Lebanon's government chose to ban the album due to its "alleged insults to Christianity" and "its all around 'bad taste.'"

Such a disappointing move! Maybe the folks in Lebanon who want to hear Born This Way can download the album off of iTunes or Amazon. Is it also banned from digital stores???

If so, they COULD always download the songs and get creative with the file names. Just re-title everything from "Lady GaGa - Born This Way" to "Dave Matthews Band - Before These Crowded Streets." Ha!

A classic Dave CD doesn't seem suspicious at all…does it?

What do U think about GaGa's Born This Way being banned in Lebanon?
