Lady Gaga's dog Asia isn't being allowed into her namesake continent.
The singer is currently performing around the world as part of her ArtRave: The Artpop Ball tour, with the Asia leg kicking off in Tokyo, Japan, on August 13.
She's hardly ever seen without her pet pooch and has been taking French bulldog Asia on the road. However, the 28-year-old has now learned the pup won't be joining her for the next set of gigs.
"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! (sic)," Gaga sadly posted on Twitter.
To show just how much she loves her pet, the eccentric star even posed with her for the cover of Harper's Bazaar's September issue.
She's pictured wearing pink tweed with Asia in her arms.
"Asia is very sweet and calm," she revealed in the accompanying interview.
"Asia is my inspiration for many things. She has really shown me the importance of living in the moment. If I don't, I'll miss a precious look on her face!
"She is a very romantic and loving animal, and this sort of poetry is what art is all about, I think. Interaction. She loves to sit with me when I record jazz. She never barks or makes noise; she just looks at me with her big ears."
There'll be plenty of jazz for Asia to listen too. Gaga recently announced an album with musician Tony Bennett.
