News: Lady Gaga's Youtube Account Suspended
Lady Gaga's videos have racked up more than a billion views on youtube and fans have flocked to it in droves to post their home-brewed takes on her outfits, fashion, music and videos.
On Thursday her YouTube account had the following message, "This account has been suspended due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube's Copyright Policy."
According to Time Out Tokyo Gaga's official YouTube account was suspended because she posted footage from her recent appearance on the Japanese show "SMAP x SMAP," on the Fuji TV network.
The "Born This Way" performance features the members of SMAP standing and posing behind Gaga, joining her dancers in some high-energy choreography and singing light backup duties on the hit track.
Spokespeople for Gaga and YouTube could not be reached for comment.
