Lady Gaga blasts Malaysia gay lyric censorship

March 24, 2011 - Travel Wire Asia

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Lady Gaga is urging young Malaysians to protest the censorship of lyrics in her hit song that encourage acceptance of gays.

The Associated Press reported last week that radio stations in Muslim-majority Malaysia are playing edited versions of “Born This Way” that use garble to replace the lyrics: “No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered life, I’m on the right track, baby.”

Lady Gaga criticized the censorship during a visit Tuesday to Google company headquarters in Mountain View, California.

Lady Gaga said young Malaysians who want to hear her song in full on the radio “must do everything that you can if you want to be liberated by your society.”

Broadcasters said they were being cautious because Malaysia’s government forbids offensive content.
