Lady Gaga Gagged From Indonesia after Islamic opposition-"She will corrupt Kids"

     Pop star Lady Gaga has been refused a permit to perform in the Indonesian capital next month over security concerns after Islamic groups voiced strong objections to her "vulgar" style. 
     Three Islamic groups have expressed their opposition to the concert on June 3, demanding it be stopped.
      Indonesia, a nation of 240 million people,, has the world's largest population of Muslims as well as significant minorities of Christians, Buddhists and Hindus. "She's a vulgar singer who wears only panties and a bra when she sings and she stated she is the envoy of the devil's child and that she will spread satanic teaching," said Salim Alatas, the Jakarta head of hardline Islamic Defender Front (FPI). 
    "This is dangerous." More than 30,000 concert tickets from a total of 40,000 tickets had been sold, said the Jakarta Post newspaper. It was supposed to be the biggest show on Lady Gaga's Asian tour, with fans snapping up every seat in Jakarta's 52,000-seat Gelora Bung Karno stadium , half of them in the first two hours of sales. 
     Permits usually are issued about three weeks before a concert in Jakarta, so it is common to sell tickets well ahead of receiving the permit. It was not immediately clear if the ticket sales would be refunded .Lady Gaga's Asian tour started late last month and many of the stops have sold out.
