  • The star has urged fans to fight back during a YouTube interview, after her song was banned by the country’s leaders

    Outlandish songstress Lady Gaga has hit back at leaders in Malaysia, after they banned her Born This Way hit from the country’s airwaves.


    It’s thought officials in the conservative country decided lyrics from the star’s latest hit – which include ‘No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered life, I’m on the right track, baby’ were too risqué, and outlawed the song.

    But now the Lady has hit back at leaders in a new YouTube interview, encouraging Malaysian fans to fight back against the ruling, which decrees radio stations could bit slapped with a whopping £10,000 fine if they play the song.

    ‘What I would say is for all the young people in Malaysia that want those words to be played on the radio, it is your job and it is your duty as young people to have your voices heard,’ she said, when asked about the song ban in an interview.

    ‘You must do everything that you can if you want to be liberated by your society. You must call, you must not stop, you must protest peaceably.’
