Sooner or later you knew it was going to happen. Lady Gaga and her wiggity wackness would eventually not be wanted in at least one country. After a storm of protests over her raunchy stage routines, Gaga has been banned from performing in Indonesia.
It was next month that Gaga was supposed to make a stop in Jakarta to perform, but it appears as if the sold-out concert will more than likely be forced to be canceled and fans can blame officials.
Not only are the pop star’s racy lyrics an offense to Islamic believers, but so are the eccentric costumes. Apparently they aren’t into whips, chains, meat dresses and spiky headdresses. Well it certainly doesn’t surprise me that a conservative country like Indonesia would insist on removing the singer’s permit for her show considering their beliefs.
My question is why go through all the committal of a concert, assigning a tour date and promoting ticket sales if the country is a no go?
Perhaps Gaga is trying to make a statement one way or the other.
