Lady Gaga has canceled her sold-out show in Indonesia after Muslim conservatives threatened trouble if the pop superstar pushes through with her Born This Way ball. The most notorious group, Islamic Defenders Front, called Lady Gaga a "messenger of the devil" and vowed to make an appearance at the airport if she tried to step off the plane. Others said they bought tickets only to create mayhem inside the stadium in the capital, Jakarta. They claimed that her sexy clothes and inappropriate dance moves would corrupt the youth in the world's most populous Muslim country.
Jakarta was supposed to be the biggest stop on Lady Gaga's Asian tour, with 52,000 tickets sold in just a few days. Fans will be fully refunded, said Michael Rusli, head of concert promoter Big Daddy.
Minola Sebayang, a lawyer for Big Daddy said "It's unfortunate, 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."
