Lady Gaga Is No Longer On China's Blacklist

Lady Gaga has been removed from a Chinese government blacklist, which had prevented her from selling her latest album, ARTPOP. The ban lifting means that the LP will go on sale, although with a censored cover.

According to CNN, Chinese censors will make the ball on the cover larger in order to cover more of her spread open legs. They will also add black tights to her bare legs. A third change was to alter the name of the song "Sexxx Dreams" into "X Dreams."

The Mother Monster hit Twitter to celebrate the news of the ban lifting:

"I'm so excited!!!! The Chinese Government Approved ARTPOP to be released in China with all 15 songs! Next I hope I can come to perform!"

In 2011 the country's Cultural Ministry said Gaga's music was "damaging the nation's cultural security."
