Lady Gaga met with the Tibetan spiritual leader, His Holiness the Dalai Lama to discuss issues on meditation, mental health and how to “detoxify humanity” last Sunday. Meeting with the Tibetan leader at the 84th Annual Meeting of the US Conference of Mayors in Indianapolis, Lady Gaga interviewed the Dalai Lama in a live streamed video through Facebook before his keynote address to the mayors. However, the meeting sparked an angry reaction from China.
China has had sour relations with Dalai Lama for decades, dating back to 1959 because of his advocacy for separating the Himalayan region of Tibet from China.
Today, China’s Propaganda Department has banned Lady Gaga after she posted a picture with the Dalai Lama and the authorities have also given strict directives to websites and media houses to ‘stop uploading or distributing her songs.’
Lady Gaga now joins the infamous list of celebrities such as Bon Jovi, Maroon 5 and Selena Gomez have been banned or their concerts scrapped just by associating or posting a picture with the Tibetan spiritual leader.
