Fans of Lady Gaga in Indonesia must be pretty peeved right about now. According to the BBC, the superstar has decided to cancel a show in the Indonesian capital Jakarta, citing security concerns over zealous religious groups who had protested her upcoming performance and issuing warnings of violence by calling Lady Gaga the "devil's messenger" who wears only a "bra and panties."
Indonesian police had also reportedly refused to issue the singer a permit to perform after Islamist groups such as the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) threatened to stop her from getting off her plane, who hailed the cancellation as "good news" for Indonesia's Muslims. Hours before the announcement was made official, Gaga tweeted, "There is
nothing holy about hatred" to her 25 million followers.
But the controversy is just the latest in a series of religious outbursts against Gaga's 'Born This Way Ball' tour through Asia. Christian groups had also been protesting her shows in the Philippines while the ones in South Korea accused her of blasphemy.
