Jan 28, 2018; New York, NY, USA; Lady Gaga arrives at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards at Madison Square Garden.


On Monday, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande were placed on Singapore's "offensive lyrics" list by the Asian city-state's ministry. As Reuters notes, the "offensive" list includes Gaga’s "Judas" and Ariana Grande’s "God Is a Woman," as well as "Heresy" by Nine Inch Nails and "Take Me to Church" by Hozier. Gaga and Grande have both performed in Singapore in the past, and while certain songs of theirs have now been deemed offensive, that doesn't necessarily mean they'll be banned from playing the city-state in the future.
