      Wow Phillip your awesome facebook boycott has a total of 8 likes...you go girl!

      jean.tredoux.5 - 2012-06-18 11:09

      Wow wesley, quickly to prans in your mini skirt and pink wigs demanding rights but little respect for anything else, let those with their 'pathetic' religion say their say, lady gaga's music is okay, can listen to her for 3 days max then I'm bored, it's the same sh#t over and over! Besides Lgaga is just copying madonna's controversial religion acts.

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-06-18 11:34

      What is your issue with me Jean? I am not a queen, i am not camp, so what the f*ck are you talking about? If you get bored from her after 3 days, then stop listening, and don't buy a ticket. Respect is earned

      Charles-Bronson - 2012-06-18 12:18

      BOOOOOOOOO!!!! You are not born evil. You choose to become evil!!! Moron!!!

      jean.tredoux.5 - 2012-06-18 12:20

      Hahahaha! Respect is earned but at the same time he says religion is pathetic... Typical fa.... 'guy'.

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-06-18 12:43

      I am not going to argue with you over religion. There are other forums for that. Check em out and you will see my justification for not respecting religion. And yes, respect is earned. Religion has done nothing to earn respect, so why should i?

      jean.tredoux.5 - 2012-06-18 13:05

      Shouldn't you be camping outside a computicket or something and Evil religion yet we get gay dominees, churches favoring and accepting gay people, sounds to me like churches/religion have made more progress than certain gay people.

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-06-18 13:12

      That is what online purchasing is for :)

      christopher.columbus.3950178 - 2012-06-18 13:36

      The most over rated singer in a long time...boring music...that is why Die Antwoord turned her down to be her supporting act...Well done Die Antwoord!

      Irene - 2012-06-18 13:49

      @Wesley ~ Check out Jean's profile picture. Says it all. The boy's obviously still in the closet.

      jean.tredoux.5 - 2012-06-18 14:26

      Of course irene, me degrading my own kind.

  • Stephen - 2012-06-18 07:43

    Oh sh*t!!

  • Cassandra Eileen Olivier - 2012-06-18 08:01

    I don't want that devil worshiper to come here

      elewies - 2012-06-18 08:05

      Ag Cassandra you must be excited as sh#t for the day scientists finally invent the time-machine so that you can travel to the 17th century?

      stille.waters.5 - 2012-06-18 08:11

      facts or GTFO

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-06-18 08:38

      What a loser

      Cassandra Eileen Olivier - 2012-06-18 08:46

      Not really Elewies if dictators got hold of a time machine they could use it to change wars they lost for themselves so they win

      bonham.butt - 2012-06-18 11:04

      So she worships something that doesn't exist. Interesting.

      Scott - 2012-06-18 12:24

      "I don't want that devil worshiper to come here." "Not really Elewies if dictators got hold of a time machine they could use it to change wars they lost for themselves so they win." Hahahahahahahaha, thank you Cassandra for giving me a laugh this morning...

      christopher.columbus.3950178 - 2012-06-18 13:39

      Yes she has the number 666 tattooed in her inner ear!! And the face of the devil with horns under her tongue!

      mo.matt.14 - 2012-06-18 17:06

      I am fascinated why a so called "devil worshipper" would call for peace, tolerance, acceptance of everyone, no matter their differences. The lyrics of "Born This Way" says things like "There's nothing wrong with loving who you are, cause He made you perfect". and "I'm beautiful in my way, cause God makes no mistakes". "No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered" "Give yourself prudence, and love your friends" "Whether you're broke or evergreen, You're black, white, beige, chola descent, You're Lebanese, you're orient, Whether life's disabilities Left you outcast, bullied, or teased, Rejoice and love yourself today 'cause baby you were born this way." Strange things for an evil devil worshiping person to call for. She has also supported many a charity, HIV, she even launched a campaign to help Japan after the tsunami. She has done more "as a devil worshipper" for her fellow man than 99% of these so called Christians who calls her evil and want to ban her, and "protect their children". She has preached, perhaps in your face and a little bit controversial, what you Christians claim to stand for: TOLLERANCE, LOVE, PEACE, ACCEPTANCE...

  • nina.ignjatov - 2012-06-18 08:03

    I am not into her music, but I think she will have an Awesome concert, as she is a brilliant performer!! Will be going to see you perform!

  • originaljm - 2012-06-18 08:13

    What a crap musician - can't even write or produce her own songs. Rather see a dying cat to be honest!

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-06-18 08:40

      Actually she does write her own songs.

      originaljm - 2012-06-18 09:22

      What, like the ever so deep meaningfull poker face lyrics? This also coming from a person who wears dresses made of meat? F.R.E.A.K.

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-06-18 12:05

      Oh hahaha, you are so funny and clever! Buffoon lol Yes, maybe read her lyrics, and feel the music. Otherwise don't listen and mind your own business. Are you THAT self-centred that just because YOU don't like her, everyone else must not enjoy her brilliance?

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-06-18 12:58

      I really couldn't care less what you think. If you can't handle the heat, stay out of the kitchen. I'm done with you ignorant bigots.

      christopher.columbus.3950178 - 2012-06-18 14:33

      "Brilliance?"...hollywood produces crap nowadays. They are so churned out, they will last for a year or two and then you will not hear them again. Now Adele that is Brilliance! You cannot compare Adele to a churned out same old same old over produced has been...give her another year or two and everyone would have forgooten about her...or she will be worshipping the devil in Minnesota somewhere..

  • Blackpoison - 2012-06-18 08:15

    R715!! Damn that's expensive!

      lydonmcg - 2012-06-18 08:19

      Not by a long shot. That's surprisingly cheap. You should have seen the Kylie Minogue ticket prices.

      christopher.columbus.3950178 - 2012-06-18 14:36

      Now Kylie is brilliance! I would pay a couple of thousand to see that babe!! And she has stood the test of time, like a beautiful velevety red wine, mmmmmm......

  • lelanie.jacobs - 2012-06-18 08:19

    This is super awesome!! Can't wait! And to all the haters and complainers out there, nobody's forcing you to go! Gaga is a brilliant entertainer, will be a memorable concert.. Little monsters, get ready!!!

      lelanie.jacobs - 2012-06-18 12:17

      Goodness me! Is your Faith so small that you feel threatened by a pop singer?? I'm glad that I can see the entertainment value of her coming to SA, and don't jump on the religious wagon to make a point! Yes, I am a Christian thanku very much, but my believes in Jesus has nothing to do with me enjoying a good concert. I should have known the religious card would be played here... Get a life!!

  • Ryno - 2012-06-18 08:23

    i suppose it is already sold out...??

      berthram - 2012-06-18 08:28

      Tickets go on sale on 21st and 22nd June, but don't hold ur breath...

  • kaz.hse.7 - 2012-06-18 08:24

    She'll fit in nicely with all the freaks we have in positions of power. Thank goodness I have slightly better taste in music....

  • wesley.bischoff - 2012-06-18 08:37

    Yesss!!!! All the gay monsters will be out in full force!!! Credit card is at the ready! ^__^

      gregory.wellsclifton - 2012-06-18 08:45

      Monsters?

      berthram - 2012-06-18 08:51

      yes, monsters.... Lady gaga fans are called little monsters

      Dakey - 2012-06-18 09:28

      I'd probably have more respect for the gay community if (like the rest of society) they considered her an idiot. Sorta makes a mockery of gay pride no?

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-06-18 09:36

      Lol clueless much?

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-06-18 10:39

      If the rest of society regards her as an idiot... why are all her tour dates sold out? Hmmm that's strange. Get a life, and be happy listening to your Engelbert Humperdink

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-06-18 11:03

      Excuse me??? So what if i am? Is that a problem for you? Can't you handle queens? Just btw i am not, i just love her.

      jean.tredoux.5 - 2012-06-18 11:28

      I figured you're like that guy who cried on youtube defending britney spears... My bad.

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-06-18 11:36

      No; maybe one day you will see me in person, and then you can make a judgement...

      jean.tredoux.5 - 2012-06-18 12:28

      Now this bickering makes no sense!

  • Bigsexy.jm - 2012-06-18 08:49

    To all the haters- shut your pie holes!

  • jumien.peceur - 2012-06-18 09:06

    GAGA is going to be great,if her music does not appeal to you then okay. For us that love her, let us be.

  • bernard.bracka - 2012-06-18 09:22

    Omg...cnt wait to see her. She's the ish right now.

  • Dakey - 2012-06-18 09:24

    Years from now we'll be amazed not just at how the world revered a person with mental instability, but now also at South Africa for inviting this little girl to come and perform here. We reject the Dalai Lama (on his birthday no less), but invite a quasi deranged idiot to come and perform? Can you imagine the offspring between Cliff and Gaga? Vomit.

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-06-18 09:39

      You are lame. That little girl has achieved more than you could ever imagine. Do you personally know her? And intimate friend of hers? No? Then shut up, how would you know if she is mentally unstable. Moron

      Dakey - 2012-06-20 09:59

      @Wesley "Do you personally know her? And intimate friend of hers? No? Then shut up, how would you know if she is mentally unstable. " She's being haunted by the Devil? http://www.channel24.co.za/Gossip/News/Lady-Gaga-The-devil-is-haunting-me-20120220 She struggled with bulimia http://www.channel24.co.za/Gossip/News/Lady-Gaga-admits-to-bulimia-past-20120210 She lives her persona even when fans aren't around? "Gaga started living and breathing her character 24/7 because she felt her fans wanted that." http://www.channel24.co.za/Gossip/News/Lady-Gagas-boyfriend-Drop-the-act-20120126 But hey Wesley, you're right I DON'T know her personally. So let's go with your definition, someone who personally knows her, perhaps even someone who raised her as his 'little girl'... http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1627975/lady-gaga-her-dad-thought-was-mentally-unstable.jhtml "It wasn't really so easy for my dad, especially in the beginning," she told Walters. "We didn't talk for months after the first time he saw me play, and my mother told me he was afraid I was, like, mentally unstable." This is a severely MESSED UP person who needs help. She hasn't yet 'Britney Speared' herself yet, but its going to be pretty spectacular when it does happen. When you pay to see the concert, cheer uncontrollably, be well aware that you're making her even more dependant on being 'lady gaga'. You're the moral equivalent of paying a crying stripper to dance for you. Open your eyes.

  • boramk - 2012-06-18 09:24

    She donated $202 million to fight AIDS. Bloody Satanist!

      arno.west - 2012-06-18 09:28

      no Christen donates, they give it to thier fatcat preachers!

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-06-18 09:40

      True that, or it goes to the Vatican

  • DewaldvTonder - 2012-06-18 09:30

    Went to her show in South Korea. Great stage presence and even greater performer.

  • Cheri - 2012-06-20 08:26

    It makes me sick that narrow minded people can make remarks and opinions about Lady Gaga. Those are the people that think she is some bad person and she "declared herself Satan's bride". Apparently all the people that have bought tickets to go and see her shows are now Satanists. Get a life people......Little Monsters don't like OPINIONS!!!!!

  • mcsukwana - 2012-07-23 10:35

    ain't lookin 4wad to this

  • andrevorster77 - 2012-11-22 15:45

    Dis net snaaks dat van die mense wat haar so sleg by haar show gaan wees ! PS, I'm not pointing any fingers, but if you dont have anything nice to say, spare your energy and dont comment ! Even if I'm not going to make it to her show, I know for sure 'SHES GONNA ROCK' !!!!!!!

  • Megan Lavender - 2014-10-12 16:11
