    Born This Way is banned!

    Lebanon has no love for Lady Gaga's chart-topping Born This Way. Thousands of copies of the album were impounded by Lebanese authorities due to Gaga's lyrics, which they believe to be "offensive to Christianity." Oh boy.

    This isn't a surprise, considering that the single 'Judas' was also banned from Lebanon's radio stations. Malaysia has also displayed similar responses to the album, banning certain lyrics from the title track, via censoring, from their radio stations because they believed it was "promoting homosexuality."

    The global reception to Born This Way is varying, that's for sure.

    What do think of Lebanon's decision to ban Born This Way?
