Lady Gaga forced to call off Indonesian tour

Lady Gaga was forced to pull the plug on the Indonesian tour after an Islamist group threatened with violence if a scheduled concert went ahead.

The group identified as FPI called Lady Gaga a “devil’s messenger” and urged the singers’ fans to stop complaining, repent and stop worshipping the devil. The Indonesian police on Saturday refused to issue a permit to the concert, citing security concerns. Just before the show was cancelled, Gaga tweeted, “there is nothing holy about hatred.”

Lady Gaga’s promotional company Big Daddy in a statement said, “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.
A banner displayed in the capital of Indonesia read, “go to hell, Lady Gaga.” The singer has been involved in series of tug-of-war with some Asian counties due to her remarks on Twitter.
