Come on! You are missing out!
US pop singer Ke$ha has been forced to cancel a concert due to take place in Malaysia today after authorities said it would undermine religious and cultural sensitivities.
Livescape said it had received a letter from the authorities on the decision to ban the concert “at the 11th hour” on Friday, despite agreeing to “modify the show to suit the Malaysian culture and sensitivities”.
The Ministry of Communications and Multimedia said in a brief statement Friday that it had rejected the application for the concert on grounds that it “touches on religious sensitivities and cultural values of Malaysians”.
Ke$ha’s MTV reality series “My Crazy Beautiful Life” has featured her bizarre behaviour in the past, including drinking her own urine.
Some of her songs refer to sex and alcohol, which are considered taboo subjects by most Muslims.
Livescape said it had made adjustments to Ke$ha’s song lyrics, wardrobe changes, and had modified a set list to specifically adhere to the guidelines set forth by the authorities.
Muslims make up 60 percent of multi-ethnic Malaysia’s 28 million people, while Christians account for about nine percent.
But conservatives occasionally cry foul over concerts by Western artists whom they accuse of promoting promiscuity, corrupting young people or offending religious sensitivities, though most concerts usually go ahead.
The best Ke$ha song right now!
