'Lady Gaga's Indonesia concert cancelled'

By Hindustan Times

Pop diva Lady Gaga's show in Indonesia has been cancelled, her promoters said on Sunday after Islamic hardliners threatened "chaos" if she entered the world's most populous Muslim-majority nation.

"Lady Gaga's management has considered the situation minute to minute, and with threats if the concert goes ahead, Lady Gaga's side is calling off the concert," Minola Sebayang, lawyer for promoters Big Daddy, told reporters.

"This is not only about Lady Gaga's security, but extends to those who will be watching her," 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 "devil's messenger" who wears only a "bra and panties" on stage
