Lady Gaga's dog Asia has been banned from entering its namesake continent due to quarantine rules.
The Poker Face hitmaker is about to start the Far East leg of her world tour but she has been forced to undertake the dates without the company of her French bulldog.
She shared the news with fans on Twitter.com, writing, "They won't let Asia into Asia. Some quarantine rules. I don't know what I'm going to do without my baby girl in Tokyo. I had so many plans!"
