China lifts three-year ban on Lady Gaga's ARTPOP album

The country's authorities blacklisted the 27-year-old singer three years ago after the Culture Ministry deemed her collection a risk to the nation's cultural security. But the album is out now, with a 'modestly' covered up Gaga on it.

A ban imposed on Lady Gaga by Chinese government has been lifted, allowing her chart-topping new album ARTPOP to go on sale legally in the country.

The country's authorities blacklisted the 27-year-old singer three years ago after the Culture Ministry deemed her collection a risk to the nation's cultural security, the Independent reported.

However, the new album, which is now available in China, has not completely escaped censorship.

One song titled, Sexxx Dreams, has been changed to X Dreams, while the album's artwork has been improved to cover more of Gaga's naked body.

Black tights have been added to her bare legs and a large ball has been inflated for the sake of 'modesty'.
