InterAksyon.com reports that on Monday, May 21, when singer Lea Salonga was asked by a Twitter follower if she is against Lady Gaga or against her for having a concert here, she tweeted: "Oh heck, no. I'm not for censorship or banning of artists. To censor freedom of expression? All artists will feel the heat." She then explained: "If you protest one artist, everything and everyone else then becomes ripe for similar criticism. And that's a can of worms I dare not open."

 

Salonga then discussed the source of religious groups’ fury, Lady Gaga’s song "Judas." She tweeted: "I just read the lyrics of @ladygaga's Judas. This whole protest against it is much ado about nothing." She then admitted: "I had to search for the Judas video to see what the fuss is about. Though some of the images are clearly not for kids, it's not satanic." She also offered her take on "Judas" itself: "The song is a metaphor for the singer's attraction for what is bad for her. If we take it literally, Jesus still ends up on top."
