Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' Banned in Lebanon

Lady Gaga's latest album may be getting stellar reviews in the US, but overseas, in Lebanon, 'Born This Way' isn't getting the same warm reception. According to NME, Gaga's freedom of self
anthem album is getting the lockdown -- thousands of copies of the album were impounded by Lebanese authorities due to Gaga's lyrics which they believe are "offensive to Christianity."

But the space age artist shouldn't be too surprised by the country's reception of the full album. The singer's recent single, 'Judas,' was also banned from Lebanon's radio stations. Malaysia has also displayed similar responses to the album, banning the title track from their radio stations because they believed it was "promoting homosexuality."

There were even rumblings from the US Catholic League in anticipation of Gaga's 'Judas' video and it's religious affiliations. But after the video was released, it's convoluted message and imagery laid to rest any criticism from the League.
