No grand entrance for Lady Gaga

2012-11-27 20:23
Cape Town - Lady Gaga touched down in South Africa on Tuesday ahead of her long-awaited concerts in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Gaga was scheduled to arrive at Lanseria International Airport around 17:50 but was delayed as her private jet had to refuel at Cape Town International Airport, reports said.

5FM reported that fans were left disappointed after her security "opted out of a grand entrance due to concerns about the Lanseria crowd".

According to Sapa, fans had packed airport's arrivals hall, and outside on the viewing deck fans chanted "Gaga, Gaga, Gaga."

The fans included hundreds of schoolchildren. A 5-year-old boy shouted: "I love Lady Gaga."

Gaga is scheduled to perform at the FNB Stadium Soccer City complex on Friday 30 November and at the Cape Town Stadium on Monday 3 December.

Big Concerts recently announced that extra tickets for her concert in Johannesburg had been released.

There was, however, opposition to her appearances in the country as the South African Council of Churches had planned planned to prevent the performances, and marched to the department of Arts and Culture in Pretoria.

The church group had raised concerns, stating that they were in fact worried about the "destructive impact" Lady Gaga could have on South Africa's youth.

Reverend Mxolisi Sonti, secretary of the youth forum, told Beeld they were afraid of the extent of Satanism in South Africa at this time, and that Gaga's visit could lead to an exponential growth of Satanism.

He also claimed that if the government could stop the Dalai Lama from coming to South Africa, then they could stop Lady Gaga as well.

    And the news is................???

      piet.motsoeneng - 2012-11-27 21:15

      I couldn't care less about her entrance. As far as I am concerned she should have not entered in the first place.

      lydonmcg - 2012-11-27 21:56

      Yet here you are...concerned enough to type a comment after opening the article. Who are you trying to fool?

      piet.motsoeneng - 2012-11-27 22:16

      If you are able to read you would notice that my comment said,' I couldn't care less about her entrance'. What disqualified me for commenting in that statement?

    Who cares

  • gail.evans.9275 - 2012-11-27 20:46

    How about you send her back where she came from? And perhaps the South African music industry should consider a few hard truths about people like Miss Gaga and the American Music Industry, and if anything ban these people from our shores, our TV and our radio stations: Lady Gaga, The Illuminati Puppet - Lady Gaga’s Fragrance “Fame” and its Occult Meaning - From Mind Control to Superstardom: The Meaning of Lady Gaga’s “Marry the Night” -

      Do you realize that the biggest anti-christ in SA at the moment is the government and the SA Counsel of Churches!

      wow this is what you want to complain about? please start with religion do your research and tell us where this all come from? this is what makes south africa so stupid coz we think we know what we are complaining about but we use our own understanding of things to defend our beliefs when we are awaiting a life in heaven anyway. thank you gevans for making people more stupid .

      KReddy - 2012-11-27 21:20

      There is such as HUGE difference between the Illuminati and Satanism you dumb f.#..k. I assume EVERYTHING non Christian or not endorsed by the Church is related to the Devil then?

      dylan.sciarappa - 2012-11-27 22:57

      @mallory I think it's not about preaching but more about making people aware so that you know what you or your kids are being exposed too. Educate yourself. The music industry is definitely controlled by dark energies. It being blatantly obvious once you open your mind and do the research.

      Tharina25 - 2012-11-28 08:49

      GEvans stop reading crap other people think up and rather read the true meanings coming straight from Gaga's mouth. Then you can comment!

      Nice Barend, thats exactly the type of reaction we expect from "loving" Christians. If it's not like us KILL IT! Lame...

  • Willie Olivier - 2012-11-27 21:16

    As far as I know she is not responsible for all the farm murders(30,000 so far en counting), crime, rape, child abuse, corruption, bad service delivery, gay murders, discrimination against minority groups, racial hatred, and so on. If you,ve got no sin, you can cast the first stone!

      piet.motsoeneng - 2012-11-27 21:23

      Are you for real Willie? Try to come with sensible reasoning maybe, just maybe I might take you seriously.

      leon.olivier.92 - 2012-11-27 21:38

      Oh really Piet so share with us you're serious point of view and tell us uneducated plain folk what exactly Lady Gaga is responsible for.

      leon.olivier.92 - 2012-11-27 22:04

      Didn't think so Piet. Willie jy rock !

      piet.motsoeneng - 2012-11-27 22:08

      We should learn to separate issues. So, because we have those things you mentioned above in SA so we are not allowed to be against who and what we do not agree with? I just dont see how you brought those things to this subject. What some us are against is based on religious reasons and it is clear that we dont share the share the same believes. Nobody suggested that they want to cast a stone on anyone, I am not sure how you got there either. Nobody said she is bringing those things here, I am not sure how you mentioned that.So, if you want to tell us why you support Lady Gaga, go ahead do so without bringing unrelated issues together. If you want to address those issue you are welcome to do so on another platform and day.

      leon.olivier.92 - 2012-11-27 22:24

      @ Piet are you serious my friend. Where have you been lately. SACOC lady Gaga responsible for moral dedegrigation. So don't bring it to SA she is almost to blame for more sin then Lucifer. Willie's statement is 100% relevant.

      martin.sim.73 - 2012-11-28 08:38

She's not evil,she's not here to turn everybody into zombies (.)(') Gaga made over 2 Billion rands in her last two tours

She is not worthy of any support and its time to stand together and send a strong message that we will no longer accept any trash that's thrown our way. We have enough of low standards, inequality. We demand better.

It had nothing to do with religion, it was the fact that China had issues with them and we have a strong relationship with China that we did not want to cripple. Not a Gaga fan, but ffs ppl...not as if she's going to come here and destroy our country...patheric really

  • deeps1910 - 2012-11-27 22:52

    To all you religious fanatics. Religion is the cause of most wars, violence, hatred and killings in this world. Lady Gaga makes music. So chill and leave those that want to listen to her music to do so. I hate religious fanatics always trying to influence everyone else. Nobody is forcing you to like or listen to her music.

After all we should welcome international talent, unless they want us to sit with Stadiums costing us more than they are worth. Just saying

  • godie3 - 2012-11-27 23:20

    this church thing is misleading ple. Gaga is god's child and her talent is from god. so where do satan fit-in? thats crazy

      leon.olivier.92 - 2012-11-27 23:27

      Her talent is from God thank you Godle3. Instead of praising God for Gaga's talent, evil and negative people say she is from satan. Only a true Christian will see the good in all that God has created.

      Well said Randall. I am also a Christian but some of these comments are unGodly. I have family that are non believers of any God or Devil and they are better behaved than some of these so-called Christians with their man-made rules. Gaga is a very talented person. Good luck to her.
