Will Lady Gaga's concert in Indonesia go forward?
Authorities want her to censor the show
JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Lady Gaga is as confused as anyone about whether she'll be allowed to perform in Indonesia.
Islamic hard-liners have threatened violence, saying her sexy clothes and provocative dance moves could corrupt youth. Police initially denied a permit for the "Born This Way Ball" but are now hinting the concert could ahead if the pop diva toned down the show.
She tweeted Tuesday:
"The Jakarta situation is 2-fold: Indonesian authorities demand I censor the show & religious extremist separately, are threatening violence. If the show does go on as scheduled, I will perform the BTWBall alone."
What she meant wasn't clear, and her promoters have not commented.
Indonesia, a predominantly Muslim nation of 240 million people, was supposed to be the biggest show on Lady Gaga's Asian tour.Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.
