Lady Gaga - Russian Politicians Accuse Lady Gaga Of Promoting Gay Rights To Minors
Lady Gaga has become the latest celebrity caught up in a legal wrangle in Russia after she was accused of promoting gay rights to minors at a concert on Sunday (09Dec12).
Politician Vitaly Milonov is threatening to take legal action against the pop superstar, claiming she broke laws that ban gay "propaganda" during a weekend show in St. Petersburg.
He says, "We saw that in addition to music, songs and such, there were direct calls for 12-year-old citizens to support the Lgbt (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community."
Prior to the gig, Milonov called on authorities to prevent teenagers under 18 from attending Lady Gaga's show.
Unfazed by the drama, Lady Gaga's upcoming gig in Moscow on Wednesday (12Dec12) is expected to go ahead as planned.
Earlier this year (12), Milonov went after Madonna after she allegedly promoted homosexuality at a concert in August (12). A St. Petersburg court rejected the compensation claim against her.
