Lady Gaga has been removed from a Chinese government blacklist, allowing her chart-topping new album ARTPOP to go on sale legally in China.

But Chinese censors have placed conditions on the album art, inflating a large ball between her legs to cover more of the naked singer's body and adding a pair of black tights to the singer's bare legs.

Officials also changed one song title, transforming "Sexxx Dreams" to "X Dreams."

In China, the pop diva's songs had been on a blacklist since 2011, when the Culture Ministry deemed her work to be "creating confusion in the order of the online music market, and damaging the nation's cultural security."
