Lady Gaga is too hot for China

Lady Gaga is just one of the many musicians that have been banned in China.

Lady Gaga is in the midst of a Bad Romance with China after six of her songs were banned, along with a host of other tunes from different artists.

The Ministry of Culture banned the tunes for being too vulgar and racy for the ears of Chinese youth, with the majority of the songs coming from the U.S., Taiwan, Hong Kong and Canada.

So what Lady Gaga tunes are affected? The next time you visit China, don't try to download The Edge of Glory, Marry the Night, Hair, Bloody Mary, Americano or Judas. Music websites have been forced to remove the tunes.

Katy Perry is also persona non grata, with her hit Last Friday Night getting the axe, as is Beyonce's Run the World (Girls) and, randomly and ten years late, I Want it That Way by the Backstreet Boys.

China began to blacklist music in 2009 to keep songs of "bad taste" out of the country. The songs must be removed from Chinese music download sites by Sept. 15.
