    source please? πŸ˜€ oh happy day!

  2. HAH! Seriously just by looking at the track listing you may see it’s offensive to Christianity: Judas, Black Jesus, Bloody Mary, Electric Chapel.

    I think she should have called her album The Bible to go with the tracks! lol

    I’m not a fan of her songs, don’t really understand why she’s so fixated on religious content
    but banning importing original CDs is really stupid and only encourages more pirated music to circulate

      That’s the point HAHAHAHAHAHAH.
      GaGa is a monster both inside and out; Banning her is the right thing to do.

      • But doesn’t it concern you that people can just ban things..just like that..just because they say so?

      • AlainLb

        It takes a mature society to differentiate between freedom of speech and potentially dangerous “works of art” that damage impressionable children. I am glad Lebanon is not ashamed to take a stand and say no the garbage of lady Gag and her obnoxiously vile and revolting attacks on Christianity and on Christ. Have you even seen her “Judas” video? so Yes I am very proud that such a video will never be shown on our airwaves and let the world know that.
        Having said that, you still have to understand what “banning” something in Lebanon means. Essentially it’s just a political or cultural message of disapproval; No one is banning YOU or anyone else from listing to or watching lady Gougou ( though I can’t see why anyone would want to )
        You want her album? download it from the Piratebay , unlike in America, Lebanon does not fine you millions of dollars ( has happened many times ) for downloading a track or two off the web.

        The real problem is that american automatons are so conditioned to their slavery as to believe they are truly free; Let Lady Gag make fun of the Jews the way she is of the Christians then lets see that “freedom of speech” of America really works.

        Lol @ Alain defending what was nothing more than a rumor. Honestly I found it a bit weird that they would even consider banning the album after we were the only middle eastern country that got brokeback mountain.

    I listened to the album, and Ican say thatthe people at the General Security are either extremly close minded and fanatical or simply didn’t get the album, because the album isn’t “offensive to christianity”. Supposing it is, it’s a shame in the 21st century to have it banned.

    As a BritBrit fan I feel giddy. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    banning it is not an economic thing or plan to reduce piracy… its a position, a stance.
    oh and btw… lol@ “I’m sure the little monsters at General Security all have their paws up right about now..” πŸ™‚

  8. Stupid General Security…
    This is embarrassing… NOTHING should be banned, NOTHING!

  9. Psshh, don’t they know that our customs officers will grab us some cds anyway? Or we can just download it – I am not sure how smart our government is at this rate really.

    I think they should focus on more important things than banning Lady Gaga’s album – possibly FORMING A GOVERNMENT…..Ok…rant ended πŸ˜‰

  10. Thanks for reading!! πŸ™‚

    Monsters everywhere, help me in my campaign to stop this silliness of banning gaga, she is more humane than any of those other people pretending to be followers of God!
    Join our group on Facebook! I will fight this till the end!

  14. maroun

    I think that we should be ASHAMED of banning music because the singer has a different opinion. That’s against the freedom of speech, about which we, Lebanese, speak so often.
