A whole lot of Arabs are terribly upset about a 10-second greeting video that singer Lady Gaga recorded ahead of her Sept. 13 Tel Aviv concert.
“Shalom, Israel, ” says Lady Gaga, who spent some of her years as a young adult on Stanton Street, next door to the Stanton Street Shul on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. “I’m so excited to perform my new tour in Tel Aviv.”

Lady Gaga’s people have already announced that her concert will absolutely take place in the Yarkon Park, in North Tel Aviv, part of her “artRave: The ARTPOP Ball” international tour. And never mind that whole Gaza thing. A real lady keeps her appointments.
Arabs on Facebook and Tweeter just couldn’t tolerate the S word video, which went viral, by the way, and called Lada Gaga “disgusting, ” “devilish” and insensitive, Al Arabiya News reported.
Tens of thousands of Israelis will attend the concert.
Lady Gaga’s last performance in Tel Aviv was in 2009. And no one, not even those BDS freaks will get her to cancel.
She’s like Mick that way.
