I for one am not anti gay but I don't expect people in the media to bandwagon on political issues whilst perform their so called art to an audience in a host country. They wouldn't dare go to saudi arabia and discuss women's rights or go to china and preach about human rights violations just as their country's political leaders wouldn't dare. It's about respecting the host country's position and keeping your nose out of it's affairs. Get it??? [/quote]
Pop stars Lady Gaga and Madonna are facing punishment in Russia after authorities determined they violated their visas when they held concerts there last year.
Technically, the artists were not allowed to work in Russia on their tourist visas, but experts say it appears the visa warning is a veiled attempt punish the pop stars for their vocal support of gay rights in Russia.
The investigation into their visas came at the urging of a lawmaker who has spearheaded Russia’s anti-gay campaign.
“The Russian government is sending a shot across the bow to Lady Gaga, Madonna, and other performers who are taking up gay rights in Russia,” said Paul Saunders, the executive director of the Center for the National Interest.
During concerts in St. Petersburg last year, both Lady Gaga and Madonna denounced the city’s harsh anti-gay law from the stage.
