Concerns for the singer’s safety has prompted officials in the capital of Indonesia to deny Lady Gaga a permit to perform in that country.
According to Reuters, Islamic groups find her singing style “vulgar” and have labeled her the “envoy of the devils’ child” and labeled her songs satanic teachings.
But apparently she has lots of fans in that country. 30,000 tickets have already been sold for her concert, leaving ticket holders in the lurch. Indonesia is a secular country with the world’s largest population of Muslims.
Gaga is hardly the first singer to grace the stage scantily clad. And while no one wants to step on anyone’s religious toes, the reality is that there are other religions in Indonesia.
