Malaysia radio cuts gay lyrics in Lady Gaga anthem

Malaysia radio cuts gay lyrics in Lady Gaga anthem

AP – Thu, Mar 17, 2011 12:26 PM SGT


Malaysian radio stations worry some lyrics in Lady Gaga's gay anthem "Born This Way" are on the wrong track, baby.

The stations are refusing to play lyrics in the hit song that encourage public acceptance of gays. The main private radio operator in this Muslim-majority country says it's being cautious because the government forbids potentially offensive content.

Broadcasters in the Muslim-majority country that have played "Born This Way" used indecipherable garble to replace the lyrics: "No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered life, I'm on the right track, baby."

AMP Radio Networks said Thursday in a statement to The Associated Press that those lyrics "may be considered as offensive when viewed against Malaysia's social and religious observances."

Lady Gaga flays Malaysia gay lyric censorship

KUALA LUMPUR (Malaysia) - 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 criticised the censorship during a visit on 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.
