This You Tube suspension comes on the heels of Lady Gaga being sued for scamming earthquake victims in Japan.

“Even though Lady Gaga’s videos have racked up more than a billion views on YouTube, even the site’s reigning queen can violate its copyright policy.

People going to Gaga’s YouTube channel on Thursday were greeted by a message saying: “This account has been suspended due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s Copyright Policy.”


According to Time Out Tokyo, the account was suspended because it hosted footage from Gaga’s recent appearance on the Japan’s Fuji TV show “SMAP x SMAP.” The 10-minute performance finds Gaga performing a medley of songs from “Born This Way,” laced with “Japan-themed ad-libs,” according to the report, and was taken down overnight on July 12 following a copyright-infringement claim from Media Interactive, Inc. . .”
