China Orders A Total Ban Of Lady Gaga After Meeting With The Dalai Lama…Wait, What?
Asian Correspondent — CHINA’S State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television (SAPPRFT) has issued a directive banning Lady Gaga in all forms of media, including television channels, radio stations, and music download websites, reported local media.
The order came about on Monday following the pop singer’s Sunday meeting with the Dalai Lama at the United States Conference of Mayors in Indianapolis, Indiana, where they discussed “the power of kindness and how to make the world a more compassionate place” during a Facebook Live chat and panel discussion.
Lady Gaga shared several photos of the meeting to her social media accounts, but for Beijing and the pop singer’s fans in China, all they saw was red.
Honestly, if you’re still reading my blog posts at this point, #BlessUp. This is the slowest time of the year and it’s been made even slower because our Cincinnati Reds are the actual equivalent of a dumpster that has been set on fire repeatedly.
2016 is weird. The first thing my brain thought when I saw this headline: who gives an actual shit about Lady Gaga anymore? I pretty much had completely washed her from my life and I think the rest of the world did too. If you’re too weird for me, you’re doing something wrong. The second you wear a dress out of meat, I’m pretty much swan diving off the bandwagon.
Second thought my brain had: Who hates the Dalai Lama? Fuck off China. I know nothing about international politics, but I’ll throw my hand in here and say you straight up can’t hate this guy.
“You know the sweet looking old guy who promotes world peace and is the spiritual leader of millions? Yeah, well that dude is ass.” – China, probably.
China is basically just a 5th grade girlfriend at this point. Telling an entire nation of 1.5 billion people that they can’t listen to Lady Gaga anymore because she talked to a guy they didn’t like.
A part of me understands the move to ban Gaga though. Power move city telling an entire nation that you’re going to jail if you even think about listening to Bad Romance. Some higher-up in the Chinese government probably heard a Lady Gaga song and that was all she wrote.
