Palace on Lady Gaga concert: "ItÆs up to parents"

Instead of banning teenagers from attending Lady GagaÆs two-night concert next week, Malaca±ang left the decision to their parents and guardians.

ôFirstly, the guidance for teenagers will be up to their respective parents or their guardians,ö deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said about the controversial shows on May 21 and 22 at the SM Arena in Pasay City.

Valte declined to comment further.

A religious group called Biblemode Youth Philippines is leading a campaign to have Lady Gaga banned in the Philippines. It said it will start a prayer vigil on Saturday until the artist arrives in Manila for her two-night concert.

Calling her the ôanti-Christ,ö the group criticized Lady Gaga for her skimpy costumes and provocative songs such as ôJudas,ö which it said is a direct insult to Jesus.

Renen de Guia of Ovation Productions Inc., the promoter of Lady GagaÆs shows in Manila, quickly dismissed the groupÆs claim that the artist is anti-Christ.

Millie Dizon of SM, meanwhile, said they have asked the production company to ômake the presentation entertaining and fun,ö and to ôstay away from controversial songs.ö

Lady Gaga has been refused a permit to perform in Jakarta next month after Islamic groups objected to her ôvulgarö style.

Last month, the government of South Korea banned under-18s from attending Lady GagaÆs concert.

    I hate these kind of people who judge others literally.
    Everybody is born in a different way... Maybe, if you were on Lady GaGa's shoes, you'd be doin the same things.

    and besides lady gaga is an artist so you can't blame her because that's her way to herself through music

    that's right its really up to the parents on how they will guide their children .... so there's no reason to freak out if lady gaga will held a concert here in our country.

    Open-mindedness. That's what you people need. Watching that concert is not about who she is, It's about her music and people like it. It will be on their own look out, besides watching Gaga's concert won't make you CHANGE what you believe in. Tss. Reflect.

    GaGa is a psycho. I am surprised that the Philippines open the door to any singers. She is also bisexual. One night she would sleep with a guy, then next day, with a girl. How disgusting!! Too much selfish egoism is the cause of her weird behaviors. Same goes to Lambert. ewww.
