Russian Promoter Fined For 'Harming Children' By Organizing Lady Gaga Concert

Lady Gaga

The heinous Russian anti-gay "propaganda" laws have found a victim in Planet Plus, a St. Petersburg promoter who organized Lady Gaga's concert last year. Even though it was Gaga herself who broke the law by promoting equality and respect for all during her show, a Russian court found Planet Plus in violation of a law that “protects children from information that is harmful to their health and/or development,” a reinstatement of a verdict that had actually been previously overturned.

A fine was levied of 20,000 rubles, or approximately $614. The amount is pretty paltry for American incomes, but the average Russian salary is roughly 23,600 rubles, or $790. So in American terms, the fine is comparable to about $44,000 for a "crime" that Planet Plus was in no way involved in.

The reason Planet Plus was fined in the first place was because a parent who was a member of the conservative group The Union of Russian Citizens complained after taking her 13-year-old daughter to see the show in what is perhaps the most obvious case this year of someone trying to be offended.

Here are All of Lady Gaga's Performances and Sketches from SNL: VIDEO


Lady Gaga hosted and served as the musical guest last night for Saturday Night Live turning in a range of sketches that were both promotional and self-deprecating, some more successful than others.

After opening the show with a version of "Applause" she also performed "Do What U Want" with R. Kelly, "Gypsy", threw a potshot or two at Madonna, mocked Kanye West and Kim Kardashian (and herself) while dressed as a geeky Apple store employee: ""I think people who try too hard with their outfits are hiding something."

She also showed up later on as an aged version of herself living for the memories.

Lady Gaga Previews SNL Appearance, Talks Madonna with Howard Stern: VIDEO


Lady Gaga hosts SNL this week as she continues a massive promo tour for ARTPOP.

Watch the previews, AFTER THE JUMP...

She also appeared on The Howard Stern Show for a nearly two-hour interview where talked at length about her feud with Perez Hilton:

"What happened was we were doing an interview -- I took two days out of my schedule when I was on a world tour to do an interview for him ... and in the middle of the interview he started asking me really terrible questions and he was being very negative about 'Born This Way' and we had had a lot to drink. He was supposed to be my friend and I felt betrayed, so I started crying. And then my friend had to come in and pull the camera out, they wouldn't turn the cameras off...And then he apologized, but I sort of felt like it was like, 'But I'm Perez Hilton so I'm allowed to treat you this way.' I looked at him and said, 'Just because you are who you are, does not mean that our friendship doesn't mean anything when the cameras turn on. So, now I see who you really are.' And I was done after that. And he's just mad that I don't want to hang out anymore because I don't want to be around fake people. I really believed, when I first met him, that he wanted to change. I really believed that he wanted to bully people less on his site and that he wanted to move into a more positive space. I was really there for him and I really supported him."

She said the feud was rooted in Madonna:

That's sort of the center of it and no one has really said that or admitted to it. It's silly...There's always this pissing match: Did she take her torch, you know, is she the new her? Is she going to outlast her or not? And there's this thing with some people that I'm a 'threat to the throne' and I don't want your ... throne. And no thanks, and I have my own. And I don't actually want a throne at all because I don't view myself as a queen. I view myself as one of my fans and that's it."

On her marijuana addiction:

"It seems that young people think that you can’t be addicted to it, but you can. And I couldn’t live without it. I mean, I would wake up at five in the morning, smoke, go back to sleep."
