And here are details from Al Arabiya:
Pop diva Lady Gaga‚Äôs show in Indonesia has been cancelled, her promoters said Sunday after Islamic hardliners threatened ‚Äúchaos‚ÄĚ if she entered the world‚Äôs most populous Muslim-majority nation.
‚ÄúLady Gaga‚Äôs management has considered the situation minute to minute, and with threats if the concert goes ahead, Lady Gaga‚Äôs side is calling off the concert,‚ÄĚ Minola Sebayang, lawyer for promoters Big Daddy, told reporters.
‚ÄúThis is not only about Lady Gaga‚Äôs security, but extends to those who will be watching her,‚ÄĚ he added.
Earlier this month Jakarta police refused approval for the show after the hardline Islamic Defenders Front threatened violence if Lady Gaga performed, calling her a ‚Äúdevil‚Äôs messenger‚ÄĚ who wears only a ‚Äúbra and panties‚ÄĚ on stage.
The promoters had indicated that a deal was being hammered out to tone down the star‚Äôs racy show, but her own management vowed no compromise to appease religious conservatives or censors.
When you appease the Religion of Peace extremists, you enable them.
The subject of Gaga‚Äôs next single? Now, that would truly be cutting edge.
