Beyonce Banned in China! By: Alex Delotch Davis for

We love her more today than we did yesterday after watching her perform on the VMA’s and proudly announce (without announcing, as is the Carter family  media policy) to the world that she’s pregnant with her first child. Congrats, Honey Bey! However, she’s not quite as esteemed in all parts of the world – China for one.

It’s not just about Bey, China has a problem with lots of people. According to the New York Times () Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and the Backstreet Boys are on a long list of artists who’s lyrics pose a threat to China’s national security. Of particular offense are Katy Perry’s “Last Night,” Lady Gaga’s “Hair” and “I Want It That Way” by Backstreet Boys. And what song of Bey’s did they ban...wait for it…
“Run the World (Girls)” I don’t make this stuff up.
