Lady Gaga

MANILA, Philippines—Guess where the anti-Lady Gaga show protesters are busy now.

As Court Administrator announced that more supporters will arrive in the pro-Corona rally and convoy to the Senate, religious groups said they will not hold a second protest rally around the vicinity of Lady Gaga’s second show Tuesday night.

The Senate, acting as impeachment court, is located at the GSIS building in Pasay City while the American pop singer’s show, titled “Born This Way” is at the nearby newly opened The Arena of SM Mall of Asia, also located in the said city.

Radio Inquirer’s Erwin Aguilon said Manila Representative Benny Abante was in the pro-Corona rally held mid-morning Tuesday at the Supreme Court.

Abante is one of the leaders of religious groups that held protests Monday to stop Lady Gaga’s first show in the two-night “Born This Way Tour” concert.

    Bishop Arguelles and Benny Abante despised Lady Gaga yesterday.  Bishop Arguelles and Benny Abante are embracing Corona today.  If you don’t see the blatant hypocrisy, I don’t know what you see.  Nakakadiri itong dalawang ito.

    I really hope the people of the 6th district of Manila will vote for someone else to represent them in 2013. There are lots of better choices than Benny Abante…
