Lady Gaga is not the first musician to be banned from China

This decision to ban the singer is a very large one as Lady Gaga has a big influence on the music industry, is recognized worldwide and is a very popular singer in the West. However, Lady Gaga is not the only singer who has been banned from performing there, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Bob Dylan, Bjork and Oasis were all also banned from performing in China. Maroon 5 were another band to be banned from being able to perform there, these artists have all been banned as the Chinese government is angered by those who speak in favor of Dalai Lama’s Tibetan independence and of his character in general.

 This news comes soon after the ‘Poker Face’ singer paid tribute to the Orlando victims and broke down in tears during her performance. The singer has felt very emotionally attached to the attack and reassured the victims and those affected that they were ‘not alone’.

Lady Gaga has not yet commented on the ban of her music in China but it is believed that she knew what the consequences would be when she met with Dalai Lama.
