Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Beyonce Songs Banned In China

Chinese officials say their tracks are "too vulgar" so have put a ban on downloads.

Lady Gaga tops the list in China with six songs, including 'Judas', 'The Edge Of Glory' and multiple album tracks, banned from being streamed or downloaded.

Katy Perry's single 'Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)' is banned for lyrics about streaking in the park, while Beyonce's 'Who Run The World (Girls)' will also be blocked for the lyrics "We run this mutha...".

The song lyrics were said to be in "poor taste and too vulgar" so will be banned from 15th September, according to The Guardian, as China try to crack down on naughty tracks.

Despite the stars being deemed "poor taste" in China, they are being honoured for inspiring fans with their singles and videos as Katy Perry and Lady Gaga are up for the MTV VMA for Best Video With A Message.
