Judging from her recent tweets, Lady Gaga was beyond excited to perform her "Born This Way" tour stop in South Korea Friday, but not everyone has welcomed the pop star with open arms.
Christian groups throughout the country were reportedly petitioning for Gaga to cancel her Friday concert, calling her show “pornographic” and a promotion of homosexuality.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the Korean government banned kids under 18 from attending the concert in response to intense pressure from the public.

Lady Gaga's waxen doppelganger has taken a road trip to Washington D.C., and was unveiled at the local Madame Tussauds wax museum on Monday.
The Mother Monster actually has eight wax figures, which are located around the globe. The wax statue that is now in D.C.'s Presidents Gallery by Madame Tussauds is on loan from the Las Vegas location, and is dressed in a one-shoulder black catsuit and platform heels with its blonde hair fashioned into the shape of a bow.
To commemorate the statue's limited time at the museum, fans were encouraged to dress like Gaga with the opportunity for five little monsters to win an iPod shuffle and an iTunes gift card.
The Washington D.C. Madame Tussauds is already home to the wax figures of late pop icon Michael Jackson; Britney Spears; Justin Timberlake; Jennifer Lopez; Rihanna; and now-engaged couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, along with the 44 U.S. Presidents.
Lady Gaga's Vegas-based statue will be at the D.C. museum until June 30.

Celebrity-surprise-of-the-night Cher showed up in a giant afro to present an award to her son, Chaz Bono, alongside his step-mom, congresswoman Mary Bono Mack.

Uh oh - it seems that yet another megastar has run afoul of the Twitterverse.
Lady Gaga is taking some virtual heat over a tweet she sent to her 22 million followers on Tuesday that used a hashtag that said pop stars don't eat, and it's being translated by some as a promotion of unhealthy habits.
"Just killed back to back spin classes," Gaga posted. "Eating a salad dreaming of a cheeseburger #PopSingersDontEat #IWasBornThisWay."

Hopefully Lady Gaga knows how to have her cake and eat it too.
The superstar, who turns 26 today, tweeted a photo last night of what appears to be a bit of a pre-party, thanks to the lone candle standing in the center of a cake slice that's seen better days. "This is how it feels turning 26 in three and a half hours," she wrote. "Ha!"
The singer has hinted that she's going to have an elaborate celebration, as she told her Twitter followers - or Little Monsters, if you will - that she was planning to have a "quinceañera," an event traditionally held by Latin families for a daughter's 15th birthday, to honor her transition into womanhood.
However the Mother Monster decides to fete another year older, she certainly has plenty to celebrate: At 26, Gaga's racked up five Grammys, nine songs in the top 10 of Billboard's Hot 100, and has sold more than 23 million albums, reports E!. Now that's something to sing about.

It looks like some Muslims might not be singing along at Lady Gaga's June concert in Indonesia.
The mega pop star was given a thumbs-down earlier this week by a "high-ranking member" of the country’s highest Islamic authority, according to The Jakarta Globe.
The report states that Indonesian Council of Ulema chairman Cholil Ridwan is urging Muslims not to attend the overtly sexy and controversial singer’s upcoming concert in Jakarta.
