Lady Gaga was greeted by hundreds of her enthusiastic fans on arrival in Bangkok. The pop singer landed in the Thai capital's Don Muang airport on Wednesday (May 23) for the latest leg of her "Born This Way Ball Tour". And just like their idol, who donned a tight-fitting leather outfit, some fans showed up dressed in outrageous style. Many burst into tears when the pop icon walked out to greet her fans. SOUNDBITE: Thanarat Yuwasujirej, fan, saying (Thai): "My dream comes true today. We are her real fans. I have been waiting for her for 4 years. Today my dream comes true that she is here in Thailand." Gaga is scheduled to perform at Thailand's biggest stadium on Friday (May 25) with 50,000 seats nearly sold out. Despite her music receiving some criticism for its sexual content from conservative Christian and Muslim groups in Asia, Buddhist Thailand seems to embrace her style without protest.
