Lady Gaga is horrified that Islamic hardliners might attack her concert in Indonesia, so she cancelled it, her reps confirmed.
It has to be noted that Gaga's management team made an announcement today there were major security concerns regarding the June 3 gig in Jakarta.The reason is that a few Islamic extremists were pissed about Gaga's provocative outfits and dance routines, which they felt corrupted Muslim youths.
The Indonesian Council of Ulema chairman, Cholil Ridwan, fervently urged fellow Muslims not to attend the show, stating: "It's intended 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 show a permit, even though 52,000 tickets had already been sold.
With a lack of permit and the security threats, Gaga's team decided to officially cancel today.
Gaga then released a statement Sunday via Twitter telling: "I'm so very sorry to the fans and just as devastated as you if not more. You are everything to me. I will try to put together something special for you. My love for Indonesia has only grown."
What do you think?
Does Lady Gaga have the bad intention to corrupt young people as Muslim hardliners beleive?
