  1. Russia Fines Concert Promoter Over Singer’s Show

    Lady Gaga’s Russian concert agency has been fined for propagating alcohol consumption and homosexuality for the singer’s St. Petersburg show last December. The claim originated with an outraged mother who accompanied her 13-year-old daughter to the show, which included allusions to sex between women. The mother will now have the opportunity to sue for millions of rubles due to the “psychic trauma” allegedly caused. Meanwhile, American viewers were subjected to a bizarre simulated sexual encounter between Gaga and R. Kelly on ”Saturday Night Live.” No trauma cases have been reported, though critics cringed at her Miley-esque turn.
