"I like pushing boundaries." - Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga and Fozzi Bear after the show… I’m so happy to be back with the Haus of Gaga!!
There’s a new social networking site on the horizon. Lady Gaga is planning to launch her very own social network. The site called “Little Monsters” aims to connect like-minded people and give more back to her loyal fans. Gaga is a role model and sends a clear message that doing your own thing and being yourself is still cool. The rockstar of gargantuan proportion is already known for her constant fan interaction and her site will offer yet another way for her to stay in touch with her fans, and more importantly, a way for them to stay connected with each other. According to Gaga Law, you’re welcome in her world and it doesn’t matter what country you are from. Little Monsters is slated for debut later this year.
BANG! Take that bigotry wrapped in religious clothing! The day her canceled show was to be performed in Jakarta, Lady Gaga fans performed a Flash Mob outside eX Plaza Indonesia in Jakarta.
Gaga posted the youtube video to her own facebook page saying:
This made me cry so hard. This happened in Indonesia yesterday. I love you so much. You are the best fans in the world.
It is official: Lady Gaga, under threat from Islamic extremists, has canceled her June 3 concert in Jakarta. The concert has been the target of protest from the moment it was scheduled. Its cancelation is being chalked up as another victory for the Islamic Defenders Front, a radical group that has been described as vigilante and implicated in multiple instances of violence.
Lady Gaga, the most followed individual on Twitter, took to her social media accounts to express her disappointment about the cancelation. The pop star managed to stay classy and focused on her appreciation of fans in the archipelago nation:
"I will try to put together something special for you. My love for Indonesia has only grown. #GagaSendsLoveToJakarta and all its people.”
"We had to cancel the concert in Indonesia. I’m so very sorry to the fans & just as devastated as you if not more. You are everything to me."
"There is nothing Holy about hatred."
Fans also took to Twitter, often asking for Gaga to ignore the threat and continue with the performance.
The comments sections of Indonesia’s two major English language newspapers, the Jakarta Globe and the Jakarta Post, mostly expressed regret and frustration about the cancelation. Many posters focused on the inability of Indonesia’s security forces to provide protection and others lamented the blow to Indonesia’s reputation as a nation of moderate Islam.
Islamic Defenders Front spokesman stated he “thanked God” for the cancellation, adding that the show “would only have been for stupid people.”
Lady Gaga offered to wear the traditional Muslim headwear for her June 3rd concert in Jakarta. Hypocrisy & corruption reign supreme. Show cancelled.
