    Filipino Lady Gaga Fans Fight Back Against Christian Groups

    Christian groups in Manilla have been protesting Lady Gaga's concert for a couple days now and the other side is fighting back. WERK.

    If you didn’t already know, Lady Gaga is set to play the Philippines on May 21 and 22. Christian groups have protested with marches and candle light vigils with orders to stop blasphemy, devil worship, nudity and lewd conduct. Ignoring protests by conservative Christians, up to 40,000 fans in the Catholic-majority nation snapped up tickets to watch Gaga.
