Lady Gaga Fears Terrorist Attack, Cancels Indonesian Concert

by at . Comments

Lady Gaga is so terrified that Islamic terrorists might attack her and/or her mega-concert in Indonesia, she cancelled the upcoming show, her reps confirmed.

Gaga's management team announced today there were major security concerns regarding the June 3 gig in Jakarta, the nation's capital city.

Extremists were calling to ban Gaga, fearing that her risque costumes, song lyrics and embrace of homosexuality would corrupt Muslim youths.

The Indonesian Council of Ulema chairman, Cholil Ridwan, fervently urged a boycott, saying Gaga "intends to destroy the nation's morality."

Security concerns for the concert skyrocketed from such beliefs, so much so the Jakarta police refused to issue the star's tour a permit.

This in spite of the fact that 52,000 tickets had already been sold.

Given the current lack of permit, and the rising security threats, Gaga's team threw in the towel and decided to officially cancel today.

Gaga then released a statement Sunday via Twitter saying, "I'm so very sorry to the fans and just as devastated as you if not more."

"You are everything to me. I promise I will try to put together something special for you. My love for Indonesia has only grown."

The 26-year-old has courted controversy everywhere in Asia.

South Korean critics also called for a boycott; She sang in the Philippines amid death threats, and most recently performed and shopped for a fake Rolex in Bangkok.

She is a wonderful singer, but taking our children down the wrong path, She has a wonderful voice, but is leaving the world in devastation.
For her songs are not up lifting. She sings about thing that are evil. I wish her the best of luck when she has to face her God, for all she is doing.

Shes no artist. Big difference between provoking dialogue and just being offensive for ratings. Gaga does the latter. Sell out of the worst kind. Also nothing about her act is original.

I'm a proud muslim and a fervent Little Monster. Love her to death ! There's nothing wrong with being both a muslim and a Gaga fan. Ppl need to stop taking things too seriously ! She's just an artist trying to speak her mind through her art. If you are that much of an easily influenced person then that's your problem !

i also don't really like gaga..but i think there is no need to ban her..just don't buy the tickets if you disagree with her way in expressing opinion.. i think those extremist have poor spiritual foundation so they afraid just watching gaga can make their moral degrades..

she wasn't BANNED, her life was being threatened by a very small group of terrorists so she cancelled the show. Just because they don't want her there, doesn't mean that the rest of the country doesn't. I mean, clearly she has at least 52,000 Indonesia fans.
