A Tale of 2 Countries Censoring Things Gays Love: Gaga + Phillip Morris

In these United States, the two hundred eighty-fifth issue of Q magazine, with Lady Gaga on the cover, is being sold polybagged or with the pop star’s “glove malfunction” covered up in display cases, or both. In New Zealand, Sky TV’s E! channel blurred the gay kiss from a I Love You Phillip Morris scene, with the network’s American attributing the censorship to ” the restraints placed upon us due to the international nature of our programmes and channels.”

Luckily, somebody built the Internet, so neither of these things are terribly big deals.
