Lady GaGa's Use Of Thai Flag as Stage Prop Lands Her In Trouble
Controversy queen Lady GaGa is once again facing severe criticism due to her on-stage antics. During her May 25 concert in Thai capital of Bangkok, the "Born This Way" crooner had attached the Asian country's national flag on her motorbike, which was a part of her act that day.
While there is nothing wrong with that, the problem is that GaGa was showing a lot of skin that day and so seeing the Thai flag with the scantily dressed pop diva was too much to take for the country's government officials.
The Culture Ministry of Thailand told Reuters that the bikini-clad artist's use of their flag as a stage prop was highly offensive and an open disrespect to the country's cultural heritage. The ministry has complained to the local police about GaGa's behaviour, although they aren't expected to do anything about it.
This is controversy number three that the 26-year-old singer caused during her tour of Asia. Soon after reaching Bangkok, she had angered the locals by tweeting that she wants to buy a counterfeit Rolex watch from the city's street vendors.
Her exact words were: "I just landed in Bangkok baby! Ready for 50,000 screaming Thai monsters. I wanna get lost in a lady market and buy fake Rolex."
Moreover, she was forced to cancel her gig in Indonesia due to strong opposition from local Islamists, who claimed that the singer's musical content was highly offensive and inappropriate. She has since moved on from Asia and is currently in Australia, performing the Pacific leg of her ongoing world tour.
