Lady Gaga just touched down in the Middle East and while there was some concern that her show, primarily the revealing costumes, would be offensive in the region, she has promised to be sensitive to that.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the singer spoke at a short press conference. When she was asked whether she would be baring the usual amount of flesh on stage, she replied, "No, I will not be. I respect the culture here, and this show will be appropriate for all the fans here in Dubai."

"I know there are some artists that are very strict about their policies of adhering to their art and not compromising," she continued, "but I actually think it's important to respect other cultures and not force them to adhere to the beliefs of your own country." She also added that she views that as an even better way to connect with her fans.

Despite causing some previous controversy, the pop star was welcomed with open arms when she landed in the region.

"My fans were so sweet at the airport I was so choked up! I have been dreaming of coming to the Middle East and finally #dreamscometrue," she posted on her Instagram page shortly after she arrived.

She later posted a pic with some of the fans, adding, "I had chills the whole time we were with the fans. I can't tell you how much it means to be welcome to the Middle East. I hope during this trip I can show my true self, with a message of acceptance, tolerance, a respect for individuals of all cultures."

If the outfit she wore at the airport is any indication of what's to come, Gaga's got some pretty glamorous ensembles lined up for the show. We can't wait to see them!
