Lady Gaga's new album Born This Way has managed to make its way to Lebanon amidst controversies and drama. The Middle East state's intelligence agency the General Security Directorate seized the shipment of the singer's album alleging that her track “Judas" is offensive to Christians. However, the government was forced to allow the shipment of the album following outcry from the singer's fans.
The Lebanon government allowed the sales of Lady Gaga'a new album in the country after her fans protested that banning the CD was pointless as it is available on internet. Now, the CDs will be available in the country.
It may be recalled that a religious organisation had earlier criticised Lady Gaga for portraying Mary Magdalene in a bad light in “Judas" and called her album 'blasphemous'.
