Lady Gaga vows to perform alone in Jakarta
London: Pop star Lady Gaga has vowed to perform alone in Jakarta if she has to, after protests from religious groups about her raunchy stage show.
The `Judas` hitmaker`s Indonesian show - set to be the biggest in her Born This Way Ball tour`s Asian leg - is in jeopardy after protests from hard line religious groups led police to refuse a license for it to go ahead, reported Contactmusic.
"The Jakarta situation is 2-fold: Indonesian authorities demand I censor the show and religious extremist separately are threatening violence. If the show does go on as scheduled, I will perform the BTWBall alone (sic)," Gaga posted on her Twitter page.
Islamic groups have protested against Gaga`s raunchy image, provocative dance moves and allegations she could undermine the country`s moral fibre.
However, fans who have tickets for the show were given hope when a key religious group, the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI), said it was re-examining its opposition to the concert today.
Gaga also remained upbeat about the situation and received the positive news that her second show in Manila, Philippines is allowed to go ahead, after officials monitored the first show and found no violations of her permit terms banning nudity, blasphemy and lewd conduct.
"And don`t worry, if I get thrown in jail in Manila, Beyonce will just bail me out. Sold out night 2 in the Philippines. I love it here!" she tweeted.
