It’s a sad day for Little Monsters around the world, Lady Gaga has had to cancel her sold out tour stop in Indonesia.

Mother Monster is in the midst of her ‘Born This Way Ball’ world tour, and the sold out June 3 show in Indonesia would have been the largest stop on the tour with 52,000 seats. Gaga has had to cancel the show following protests by Islamic critics and conservative lawmakers, who said her sexy clothes and dance moves will corrupt the youth. The critics say the show threatens the country’s moral fiber.

The head of hardline Islamic Defender Front, Salim Alatas explained of Gaga, “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.”

A National police spokesman in Indonesia said today that the permit for the concert had been denied following the loud criticism. The police were worried they could not guarantee security and the safety of the concert, and were urged to deny the permit, therefore cancelling the show.

Gaga is no stranger to controversy, as her South Korea concerts were banned for anyone 18 and younger. We’re sure this is NOT the last of the controversy Gaga will face while on her world tour. Do you think the lawmakers and conservatives in Indonesia went too far by denying the permit for the concert? Leavvvve a comment!

  1. I love Gaga. I’ve been to her Monster Ball last year and it’s true about the way she dresses – even though I admire her for that. But banning an entire concert with 52,000 SOLDOUT seats for that reason is just…dumb. They could’ve set an age restricted entrance or something, like they do with many other concerts, but not cancel the whole thing! It’s not like the “youth” isn’t corrupted already.

    Good post! xx

  2. what i don’t understand is why ban something when the people who have bought the tickets know full well what they are in for. & to deny people of certain things i think is wrong.
