US singer Lady Gaga's latest album "Born This Way" has been banned by Lebanon's General Security for being "offensive to Christianity," Lebanese newspaper The Daily Star reported on Monday, citing unconfirmed reports.

A shipment of the album to Lebanon was reportedly impounded immediately by General Security upon delivery to the country last week.

According to the report, the track entitled "Judas" on the album has drawn criticism from religious groups. The single, in which Gaga sings "“I’m just a holy fool, oh baby he’s so cruel/But I’m still in love with Judas," was taken off of Lebanese radio play lists in April.
