Los Angeles: Pop star Lady Gaga is excited after her latest album `Artpop` was approved for release in China where her songs were banned three years ago.
The Grammy-award winning singer`s albums were banned in the South Asian country in 2011 after its ministry of culture stamped them vulgar.
The 15-tracks album was released in the US in November last year. It is now headed to China.
"I`m so excited! The Chinese Government Approved `Artpop` to be released in China with all 15 songs! Next I hope I can come to perform!," 27-year-old Gaga tweeted.
Besides Gaga other major artists blacklisted by China for vulgarity in songs include Katy Perry, Kanye West, Britney Spears and Backstreet Boys.
