Lady Gaga Joins List of Celebrities Banned Abroad (PHOTOS)

Celebrities Banned Abroad

Lady Gaga, who is scheduled to perform in Jakarta next month, has been banned in Indonesia following Islamic protests. The critics have ripped the pop superstar for her for her "Satanic lyrics" that threaten to "destroy the children's sense of morality," Time magazine reports.

The "Born This Way" singer has been denied a permit to perform in the country -- even though she had sold out the massive, 52,000-seat Gelora Bung Karno stadium for the June 3 show.

The singer, 26, joins a slew of other celebrities including Beyonce Knowles, Russell Brand and Paris Hilton, who've all been banned from foreign countries. Click through the gallery to see why the stars were denied access abroad.

The tour stop in Indonesia was set to be the largest stop on her "Born this Way Ball" Asian tour, which includes stops in Bangkok, Manila, Tapei, Hong Kong and South Korea.

The singer's Asian tour kicked off in late April and has already had plenty of controversy. Conservative groups in South Korea complained about Gaga’s skimpy costumes, leading authorities to ban minors from attending her recent show.

    i mean. i love lady gagas voice and i like some of her music but the blasphemous ones are really disturbing. i dont know if shes just doing it for entertainment, attention or what its just so disrespectful to believers. why is it that when christianity is made fun of, its ok. if you mess with sexuality and gender and equality, youre dead?
