  1. Mashallah! Santa Gaga.

    1. ‘Whatever Allah (God) wills Saint Gaga’
      Literal translation.

  2. God love you Lady Gaga! She’s the best advocate for LGBT rights we’ve had for AGES.

  3. Go for it Girl …GO GO, Lady GAGA!

  4. you’d think that this country should be more concerned with serious issues that make them look bad on the international stage such as kidnapping of foreigners, having one of the most corrupt political systems in the world and mass poverty….rather than striking out at artists such as this…..very sad indeed

    “Catholic Archbishop Ramon Arguelles….urged….boycott….saying fans were ‘in danger of falling into the clutches of Satan’.

    The Mayor….of the City of Manila, Alfredo S. Lim….warns on his website of the dangers of promoting homosexuality.”

    Little Monsters.

      Someone pat Ramon on the head and give him a cookie.

  6. Not a fan of her music. Love her advocacy.

    And how typical of religious freaks to not be contented with wallowing in their own delusional, they must always try and force others in to compliance with it.

    If you don’t like what Lady Gaga does – and it is hardly a bloody secret – then don’t go. Simple as that. But to withdraw the rights of others to choose for themselves is abhorrent.

    Homosexuality has always existed,that is all.

    Is it really too much to hope that these people may come to understand that the only “healthy and normal” way to live is to be true to yourself?

    1. While the organised machinery of hate and intolerance that is the Catholic Church grasps for worldy power by brainwashing and social engineering, “yes”.

  9. ‘discourage them from indulging in gay activities or becoming one.’

    How does one become a gay activity?

    “What are you doing today?”
    “Steve”

    ?

  10. Mayor of Manila, Alfredo S. Lim: Humans as they are, gays have rights to be enjoyed as what normal ['normal'?!] beings possess

    No sh1t, Sherlock. Positively teetering on the edge of enlightened liberalism there, be careful!

  11. The tickets in Manila are £235 each? That’s more than most tickets to the Royal Opera here!

    The fact that so many people in Manila are willing to pay that much that they had to schedule another concert speaks for itself.

    1. I don’t think Gaga gets to set the prices herself, but even so a lot of that will be for the record companies and security.
      If you see only one concert in your life, you have to make it one of Gaga’s. They are incredible and she dances til she’s sick and gives you every penny worth of the ticket price!

      1. Well, I hope so. Even by London standards £235 is a shocking price. For a ‘developing’ nation it’s almost inconceivable.

  12. Lady Gaga is a gift to gay rights activism worldwide. These homophobes got nothing on her. She sold millions of her albums, gained her little monsters globally and emerged as a powerful woman, so young at her age. Those haters are just a bunch of washed up dreamers who lashed out at her because they failed in life and envy her.

    Just another set of praise releases? In other words, stupid people are too stupid to know how stupid they are?

    and as far as credentials is concerned
    “Archbishop Ramon Arguelles” Another Bleating Idiot Sheep In The Herd …
    YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO HUMANITY
