Lady Gaga Forced to Cancel show in Indonesia



Due to death threats from Islamist, Lady Gaga had to canceled her sold-out show in Indonesia. Over there, she is looked at as a very bad person who corrupts children and looks like a harlot. 


Here's more:
The controversy was a blow to the predominantly Muslim country's reputation for combining free speech and democracy with a mostly moderate brand of the faith.

Fans were devastated, despite the promoter's offer of full refunds. Some accused police — who refused to issue a permit over concerns about security — of buckling to the will of a small group of thugs.

The planned "Born This Way Ball" concert has been on-again-off-again from the start.
But on Sunday, it was final, said Minola Sebayang, a lawyer for Big Daddy, the promoter of the June 3 show.

"It's unfortunate," he said. "But with threats if the concert goes ahead, Lady Gaga's side is calling it off. This is not only about Lady Gaga's security, but extends to those who will be watching her."
This must be a terrible blow to her fans who has to deal with that madness on a regular basis.
