Lady Gaga's new album has had insane sales, but apparently not in Lebanon, the Sun reports. The Middle Eastern country banned Born This Way from its stores and impounded a shipment of the album. The government, which had already banned her song "Judas" from the radio, reportedly finds the album "offensive to Christianity" and in "bad taste."
