Lady Gaga Gets Gagged by Malaysia

Malaysia doesn't care if you were "Born This Way" — they just don't want to hear about it. In fact, dozens of radio stations in the Muslim-majority country have censored the lyrics to Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" and its pro-acceptance message. In place of the line "No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered life, I'm on the right track, baby," they've subbed in gargled vocals. AMP Radio Networks, which operates in Malaysia, says the lyrics were censored because they "may be considered as offensive when viewed against Malaysia's social and religious observances." [AP]
