Lady Gaga shopping in Bangkok — for a fake Rolex.....

Lady Gaga came to our home, but instead of admiring us she insulted us," said a commentator on popular Thai web board pantip.com.
She posted her tweet shortly after her private jet arrived Wednesday night: "I just landed in Bangkok baby! Ready for 50,000 screaming Thai monsters. I wanna get lost in a lady market and buy fake Rolex.
Lady Gaga is stirring nationalist fervor in Thailand, where people tend to get upset when the country's seedy underworld is highlighted by outsiders.
We are more civilized than you think," tweeted Thai DJ Surahit Siamwalla, who has a ticket to Friday's show in Bangkok but said he plans to boycott.
Lady Gaga wants to go shopping in Bangkok — for a fake Rolex.The singer made the comment to her 24 million Twitter followers, sparking a uproar Thursday in Thailand where some fans called it offensive, insulting and bad for the country's image.
It's the latest publicity-making turn of events as "The Born This Way Ball" travels through Asia.Lady Gaga's provocative lyrics and costumes have angered Christian groups in South Korea and the Philippines and Islamists in Indonesia, where the show may be banned.
It is unclear what a "lady market" is but some Thai fans assumed she meant the popular outdoor Ladies Market in Hong Kong, where she already toured — and also eyed the luxury knockoffs.
"I love this city," she tweeted April 30 after taking a Hong Kong spin class. "You can work out & buy a fake Birkin on the same street."
Not all Thai fans objected to the off-color comment. A screaming mob greeted Lady Gaga at the airport. Crowds thronged her 5-star hotel, where she signed autographs and hugged one female fan who left in tears. People have camped outside Rajamangala stadium for days, hoping to be first inside and win the prize of meeting the pop star in person.
