Lady Gaga, Katy Perry Have Some of Their Songs Banned From China Internet

China banned 100 songs from the country’s Internet, including six from Lady Gaga and two from Katy Perry, as the songs didn’t apply for a content review or proper registration with the government, the Ministry of Culture said in a statement on its website.

Websites must delete these songs by Sept. 15, the statement posted on Aug. 19 said, adding that they will be punished if they fail to do so.
