Popstar Lady Gaga is facing further
protests on her tour across Asia after religious activists in
Indonesia condemned her plans to perform in the country.
The Poker Face hitmaker, who kicked off her Born This Way Ball world tour last month in South Korea, was forced
to perform in the face of a demonstration outside her show in
Seoul after angering hardliners with her saucy lyrics and
raunchy stage costumes, reported Contactmusic.
Gaga, 26, is now taking the tour to Indonesia for a gig
in Jakarta on June 3 but a hardline Islamic group has warned
her that it would not let Gaga set foot in the country.
"Lady Gaga insults all religions. Even Christians in
Korea opposed her. She is promoting the worship of Satan," a
spokesman for the Islamic Defenders' Front (Fpi) said.
Fpi chairman Rizieq Shihab previously urged Lady Gaga to
call off the show and said, "If you want chaos in Jakarta,
just continue to hold the concert."
