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] Actually, don't listen to most muscicians for want to know what level of rituals some are into..... However, when it comes to the world, its all about Family and equality, and we have to be brave and challenge all that is wrong in it. Also, support each other doing so. Also, all the countries, should be upgrading their human rights and that includes the middle east, china and russia ASAP. And we need to be very outspoken about it. I'm not into country music. That never ever appealed. Rock, pop, jazz, blues, mixed, classical, especially meditational and theta type though, and eastern. Kind of like a bit of everything almost, if its good, but not into country. Or heavy metal, though some heavy is good. Even like the occasional Russian one. [/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.
