Lady Gaga has been accused of promoting gay rights among minors at a concert in Russia.

Politician Vitaly Milonov is threatening to take legal action against the pop superstar, claiming that she broke laws that ban gay 'propaganda' during a weekend show in St. Petersburg.

"We saw that in addition to music, songs and such, there were direct calls for 12-year-old citizens to support the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community," he said.

According to, prior to the concert, Milonov called on authorities to prevent teenagers under 18 from attending Lady Gaga's show.

Unaffected by the drama, Lady Gaga's upcoming show in Moscow on December 12 will go ahead as planned, the report added. (ANI)
