Lady Gaga Cancels Indonesian Concert After Threats From Muslims
"Lady Gaga has canceled her sold-out show in Indonesia over security concerns after Muslim hard-liners threatened violence if the pop diva went ahead with her `Born This Way Ball,` promoters said today.
The Islamic Defenders Front said Lady Gaga`s sexy clothes and provocative dance moves would corrupt youth in the world`s most populous Muslim country.
The group said supporters had bought tickets to the concert and planned to enter and force it to be stopped. It also threatened that thousands of protesters would confront the singer on her way from the airport."
It`s not Lady Gaga`s sexy clothes and provocative dance moves that corrupt the youth in America and all over the world. It`s her cynicism in putting on a show that celebrates gimmickry and circus-like theatrics over artistry and musicianship.
Music lovers all over the world are getting fed up with Lady Gaga`s obsession with auto-tune, publicity stunts and garish costumes, it`s getting to be a bad romance with Gaga and pop music fans.
Lady Gaga made the right call in canceling her concerts in Indonesia, her foremost concern must be her own safety, and that of her fans.
I wish it had been lack of ticket sales and not Muslim thugs that had caused Lady Gaga to cancel her concerts.
