Gaga's South Korea concert marred by protests

Pop icon Lady Gaga has landed in South Korea ahead of the first Born This Way Ball tour date, but there have been protests against her concert in Seoul over the past 12 hours.

The 'Judas' sensation was photographed in the grounds of Seoul's Olympic Stadium earlier today (April 22) and looked excited about the forthcoming performance, but a group of around 300 Protestant church members in the area are trying to stop the show using the power of prayer.

Kang Ju-Hyun, a prayer organiser, told AFP:

"We will pray to God that the concert will not be realised so that homosexuality and pornography will not spread around the country."

Although the concert in South Korea won't take place until April 27, it has already been slapped with an age restriction because of Gaga's use of religious iconography, provocative routines and public support of homosexuality.




Speaking about the censorship, Gaga recently stressed: "Thanku to all the adults in Korea who are speaking out for underaged who want to come to the BTW Ball. Maybe the gov. will change their mind. Although not affecting ticketsales in Seoul, parents should be given more credit to determine whats [sic] good for their children. I love my fans."
