Beirut, June 7 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Lady Gaga’s new album “Born This Way” has been banned in Lebanon. The country’s authorities consider the song too vulgar religiously and as a result given the directive that the song should not be allowed into the country.

Reports say multiple shipments of the album have already been seized in the country. This is not the first time that the government in Lebanon has barred its teeth at the current work of the controversial singer. When the track “Judas” was released ahead of the final release of the album, the country banned its radio stations from playing the song in the country.

Apart from the Lebanese government, the Catholic Church is also a major critic of the latest work of Lady Gaga especially the track “Judas.” When the video of the track was released just ahead of the Easter weekend, the Catholic Church came out fuming.

Catholic League President Bill Donohue issued a statement on the issue saying that, “This is a stunt… Lady Gaga tries to continue to shock Catholics and Christians in general: she dresses as a nun… she swallows the rosary. She has now morphed into a caricature of herself.”

“Born This Way” has already gone platinum in the United States.
