Russian Officials Target Lady Gaga, Consider Prosecution For “Promoting Sodomy”

Lady-Gaga-lady-gaga-20266622-1600-1039Now that Russian officials have made it abundantly clear what they think of homosexuals, they’re moving on to what they feel is the second most appalling race under the sun: the Little Monsters.

Lady Gaga responded today to allegations that Russian officials are considering prosecuting her for entering the country with a “wrong visa” last year. She is also being accused of “promoting sodomy, lesbianism, bisexuality and transgenderism among minors” during her shows in Moscow and St. Petersburg. It’s safe to say that Vladimir Putin will not be preordering Artpop on August 19.

Mother Monster thrice tweeted this morning, “sending bravery” to Russia’s gay community, calling for a revolution, and demanding an end to the government’s “archaic” abuse:

In other Gaga news, TMZ reports today that a judge has granted the artist’s request to seal court documents pertaining to a case between herself, former boyfriend Rob Fusari, and friend Wendy Starland. According to the judge, the documents in question contain information that could “seriously injure” Gaga, and should remain private.

So…. What is it?

      I have never cared for “Lady” Gaga, but suggest she shut up and get out of Russia
      before they lock her up and throw away the key.

      To commenters Nos. 1 & 2 – Yeah, it’s right to be mad at Lady Gaga & not at the oppressive Russian regime. *sarcasm* *rolls eyes*

      @Jerry12: She’s not in Russia you moron. Perhaps if you’d bother to read the story it would be more clear to you.

      Madonna fans are just upset because they ran out of HIV medications and the fact that Madonna isn’t brave enough to speak out against Russia.

      You know, I find her tired and don’t really see her house… But I have to give credit where credit is due. She seems like a genuine and earnest young lady who really cares about her fans and her fellow human beings. I am sure the world is a slightly better place for having her. Kudos to hef

      @Madonnaids: making fun of hiv/aids really ? and secondly I don’t hate gaga and im not a Madonna fan but she did speak out before any other artist spoke out she did she spoke out on stage in Russia about the anti gay propaganda laws, she spoke out for pussy riot while in Russia and spoke out against the government while in Russia ,and as for the gaga hate on here I think it has more to do with her persona than what shes saying because seen as the whole mother monster thing and gaga act is not legit I don’t think people feel what shes saying is either , and is it not gaga speaking out after shes left Russia rather than while she was there I no she said something but im not sure it was while she was there ? so wouldn’t it be gaga that’s not brave ?????

      Putin and members of the Duma are constantly trying to hide the whereabouts of their descendents from the people in Chechnya (a.k.a. the survivors of the genocide Putin and Duma members committed against Chechens). Let the people of Chechnya know the whereabouts of their descendents if you want to reign in the atrocities of the Russian politicians. Haven’t you wondered why Putin and the others sent them abroad? The GLBTA community has a global reach. Time to help the genocide survivors since Putin and Duma members are committing genocide against gay people – not the first group they have committed genocide against.

      Lady Gaga seems to stick up for gays whenever she has a new album coming out.

      @skcord: thank you. There is so much negative competition made up between the two. Can’t we have multiple fierce divas? Madonna clearly violated the law on her tour in St Petersberg with a rainbow flag demonstration and a speech about acceptance and love , there was and may still be footage of it on youtube. She’s not that great with the social media and rousing the masses (and has a bunch of actual children to mother unlike mother monster).

      peace and love, people
