Lady GaGa took the Born This Way Ball tour to Manila today, 21st May. The concert took place amid protests outside the newly opened Mall of Asia Arena, but Lady GaGa refused to tone down or change the show in order to conform to the Filipino government. During the show, she said:
Some people say I stand for things that are bad. The truth is, I want the best for every single one of you. My lifestyle is like one whole performance of liberation… for those of you who aren’t free. Take this opportunity to free yourself.
Don’t fucking test me, this country better not fucking test me because I can start a fucking revolution with all of you.
