A “Bad Romance” in Jakarta For Our “Government Hooker”

She may have been “Born This Way”, but some find her “vulgar”.

Now, Islamic hard-liners and conservative lawmakers have forced pop superstar Lady Gaga to cancel her sold out show in Jakarta, Indonesia, on June 3rd.

A spokesman for the national police denied a permit for the show because they may not be able to guarantee security because of threats of physical force to keep Gaga from getting off her plane.

While Indonesia is a secular state, it has a large Muslim population.  There’s also a small group of extremist religious leaders that claim that Lady Gaga would corrupt the nation’s youth.

Salim Alatas, the Jakarta head of hardline Islamic Defender Front (FPI), says “she’s a vulgar singer who wears only panties and a bra when she sings and she stated she is the envoy of the devil’s child and that she will spread satanic teaching.”

52-thousand tickets to the show were sold out in just two hours.

The “Born This Way Ball” tour continues later this week in Taiwan and will play other concerts in the Philippines, Thailand, and Singapore before heading to Australia, Europe, and South America later this year.

As you recall, this tour kicked off on April 27, 2012, with a small group of protestors in Seoul, South Korea praying for Lady Gaga.  Minors were not allowed to attend that show.

People, loosen up and “Just Dance”!  Here’s some video from her concert in Hong Kong earlier this month.
