Lady Gaga bans all media from latest Artpop Ball tour

Lady Gaga appears to be repeating a form of censoring of what photos make it onto mainstream media by allowing no press on her latest Artpop ball tour. Gaga did similar action earlier in her career and restricted media access. Why the sudden change from the Born This Way Ball tour? It's easy to speculate as to why she has created such restrictions; one could be that the pop songstress has perhaps gained a few pounds recently and she may be a tad sensitive about her body at this time.

This practice is not uncommon; as many big music performers use these tactics, they might restrict all photography for media for the tour, or they may have media photographers stand as far back as possible, which usually ends up being the front of house, or soundboard of the venue. In either case, Gaga’s decision to restrict media from photographing her, may perhaps hurt her than protect her.

Gaga performed last week in St. Paul Minn. and made a stop at Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare surprising thousands of children. Seems Gaga formed a relationship with Gillette patient Emma Carroll on her tour stop last year and wanted to return the favor.

Maybe more charity events like this would help Gaga over the slump she appears to be in; as album sales of her latest effort, Artpop were a commercial disappointment, from previous releases, selling a mere 685,000 units as of April 2014. Will Gaga’s management allow media for the second leg of the tour? Only time will tell.
