Lady Gaga: Just Too Gay For Malaysia

by at . Comments

Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" is just too provocative for Malaysians to hear. That's what the government of the Southeast Asian nation decreed this week.

The government there ordered radio stations to play an edited version of the hit song because its lyrics are an affront to Malaysia's conservative values.

So what exactly was so offensive?

A refrain proclaiming "No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered life, I'm on the right track, baby I was born this way," makes it pretty clear ...

Little Monsters in Malaysia instead hear a jumble of indecipherable words due to the nation's cultural restrictions on anything promoting an LGBT lifestyle.

"'Born This Way' may be considered as offensive when viewed against Malaysia's social and religious observances," said the country's AMP Radio Network.

"The entire issue of being gay, lesbian or [bisexual] is still considered as a 'taboo' by general Malaysians."

Lady Gaga herself has yet to speak publicly about the "BTW" censorship, but given her recent fallout with Target, we don't expect this news to go over well.

I am a Malaysian and I thank Malaysia for not promoting an average singer who's only famous for trashy clothes...I prefer Adele or Beyonce coz there are true musicians who used talent,only talent to be a star.Is she that stupid to understand that religion is a sensitive matter and she fuckin sing Judas..I forgive USA juz because of Michael Jackson. His music is about love and peace.:)

please dont condemn malaysians. not all of us are that narrow-minded like all our goody-two-shoes leaders. i'm an avid fan of lady gaga and i'm also disgusted by the idea of such censorship. but what the hell, we can download our own mp3, no need to listen to the shitty radio station anyways, all the media in malaysia are just politically inclined propaganda method. internet in my life is a blessing.

I can't stand wierdo LGG. She is so trashy and is trying to force everyone to accept her perversion. Did anyone want their kids to see her lewd performance on American Idol a few weeks ago? Disgusting! Why would it be a compliment to be called a demonic monster?

Lady Gaga is truly awesome! She dresses the way she dress, and sings in her own way. She is not afraid to show that she was 'Born This Way'! Malaysians, fight for your rights to show that we were born in our own way and no authority, no law and no one can tell us not to be who we were meant to be!

I'm from Malaysia and I'm born this "way". I think our culture are like "don't ask don't tell". But certainly, we little monsters are living our own fabulous life

I love GaGa her music and fashion style is an inspirataion! She's not afraid to be different, but Malaysia is. I think what they did is terrible!!! We all should be able to express ourselves. I am an oplenly gay person, and it's people like GaGa who make equallity a step closer everyday! For all of u who r straight, imagine being told that you can't marry the person you love! How does that make you feel????? NOT GOOD AT ALL!!!!!!!
