Seems Lady Gaga has reached a new milestone: having a nation protest her presence. For Madonna, it was the Vatican hate her when she crucified herself in nearby Rome. For Gaga? It’s the South Korean Christian zealots who think her “Born This Way” tour should be banned because she advocates homosexuality and pornography.
According to CBS: Nearly 300 conservative Protestants met in Seoul on Sunday to pray Gaga away. And members of the Alliance for Sound Culture in Sexuality put up posters in Seoul, accusing Gaga of “spreading unhealthy sexual culture” through “lewd lyrics and performances.” The fliers have since been removed by city officials but prayers continue.
While Gaga has been wracked by some controversy of her own making recently, this is a new feather in her proverbial cap. And it may get nasty. “We will pray to God that the concert will not be realized so that homosexuality and pornography will not spread around the country,” Kang Ju-Hyun, a prayer organiser told AFP. But as we all know, Gaga’s God is dancing to a different drummer.
