malaysia censors lady gaga born this wayLady Gaga has always been a friend to the gay community, but Malaysia just isn't feeling the love. The conservative, Muslim-majority nation took issue with some of the pro-gay lyrics in Gaga's new hit single, 'Born This Way,' and promptly dropped the censorship ax, according to the AP.

Radio stations in Malaysia have made the decision to censor the track, replacing lyrics like "no matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered life" with garbled sounds.

A statement from Malaysia's largest private station, AMP Radio Networks, defended the call, saying, "The particular lyrics in 'Born This Way' may be considered as offensive when viewed against Malaysia's social and religious observances." It continued, "The issue of being gay, lesbian or [bisexual] is still considered as a 'taboo' by general Malaysians" -- as well as the government, which can impose fines on broadcasters for infringing on the ban.
