The government has a bone to pick with all of them. Let's review.
Lady Gaga pissed off Chinese officials by having a sit-down with the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibet.
Justin Bieber posted a photo of Tokyo's Yasukuni Shrine ... a memorial honoring Japan's fallen soldiers.
As for BTS ... well, they've pissed off the government for various acts, including what officials believe is a snub by overlooking China's contribution in the Korean War.
Too bad for the Chinese people, because Gaga killed it singing "Smelly Cat" with Lisa Kudrow. Bieber was hilarious as he wore a "Spudnik" costume. And, BTS represented young folks who discovered "Friends" in its syndicated afterlife.
