Islamic Extremists Force Lady Gaga to Cancel Sold-Out Jakarta Concert

This Woman is a Threat to Indonesia? Radical Islam Thinks So!

Islamic extremists have forced international superstar Lady Gaga to pull the plug on her sold-out concert at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta, Indonesia.

52,000 tickets were snapped up by Lady Gaga’s “Little Monsters” in two hours.

Islamic loons criticized Lady Gaga for the suggestive nature of her show. Some even threatened to use physical force to prevent her from stepping off her airplane. So much for Islam being a religion of peace.

Indonesia is a nation of 240 million people and has more Muslims than any other on earth.

Lady Gaga, an outspoken supporter of LGBT rights, has sold an estimated 23 million albums and 64 million singles worldwide, making her one of the best-selling music artists of all time.

    Islam is a male-centric, profoundly homophobic religion mired in the 5th century.

  2. Scott Dancer says:

    Iranian rapper Shahin Najafi, living in Germany has a $100,000 bounty on his head after an Islamist website offered a reward for anyone who kills him over a song that satirises the Islamic Republic and irreverently addresses a historic religious figure.

    The Iranian news and religion website said hip-hop star Shahin Najafi deserved to die for a song which it said “grossly insulted” Ali al-Hadi al-Naqi, one of the 12 imams, the religious figures highly revered by Shi’ite Muslims.

    Islam tolerant and peace-loving? In what, the 11th dimension?

  3. I have my problems with the Roman Catholic Church over the viciously homophobic Pope but, I don’t recall any Christian religion in the U.S. threatening to physically harm an artist it disagrees with.

    Even the Evangelicals in the American south know better than to try that shit.

    This is where I part company with the political left. Liberals need to open their eyes and smell the rotten lamb. Indonesia is always referred to in the MSM as “modern and tolerant”. But the fact of the matter is, Indonesia isn’t sufficiently modern and tolerant to allow Lady Gaga to perform and protect her safety from the sword-wielding nutcases who threatened to harm her.

  5. Abbey Peripatetic says:

    See what happens when you live in a theocracy?

    Can you imagine Lady Gaga performing in Iran? Iraq? Afghanistan? Somalia? It would never happen because some nutty towelheads control everything from your vagina, to the kind of music you listen enjoy, to what movies you watch.

    Countries controlled by Islam are a lost cause. Maybe by 3012 countries like Indonesia will evolve to the point where they aren’t threatened by 5’4″ pop singer from New York City.

    ROFL! The 11th dimension and the New York Times.

    Listen, any religion that influences the passage of a law that allows a husband to withhold food from his wife if she won’t sleep with him should be incinerated and the ashes used to line the bottom of a bird cage.

  7. Marburg says:

    It’s a shame for Lady Gaga’s Indonesian fans but this is the face of Islam. It’s all about control.

  8. feminazi says:

    Lady Gaga is wise to cancel her show in Jakarta. If religious fanatics threaten to harm her as she gets off her flight then it makes no sense to bother with Indonesia. Her fans will be deprived of seeing and hearing her and the Muslims can put another feather in their cap. One more for Allah!

  9. VicoDANIEL says:

    I can’t help but wonder if Indonesia’s Islamic hardliners were less worried about her performing in a bra and panties, or her support for the gay community and more worried about her pro-Israel views?

    In 2009, Lady Gaga performed in Tel Aviv and greeted the crowd with “Shalom Aleichem, Shalom my friends.”

    ‘She “told the Tel Aviv audience of her love for Israel, its land, its food, and its good-looking men.”

    Muslims have nothing but contempt in their hearts for the Jews.

  10. Brigadoon says:

    I think VicoDANIEL hit the nail on the proverbial head. Lady Gaga is everything the Muslims hate. She loves “teh gays”, the Jews and she sings about individual freedoms. She poses a threat to the younger generation of Muslims who must get on a magic carpet and pray to Allah 5 times a day or risk having your hands chopped off by a local cleric.

  11. Peace Nick says:

    Utterly bizarre.

    Methinks Indonesia needs to rethink their priorities as in do something about the corruption that is epidemic in the government and police and leave Lady Gaga alone.

  12. Harry says:

    My fantasy has the Indonesian people mounting an uprising and throwing the Islamic-led government and electing a secular government. It’s their call.

  13. Rachel says:

    Since they can’t guarantee her safety from Islamic lunatics, I’m delighted Lady Gaga cancelled her scheduled performance in Jakarta. Lady Gaga has fans all over the world but unfortunately Muslims practice violence against women they feel threatened by. It makes no sense for Lady Gaga to risk being harmed or worse. Like Harry said, maybe this will make Indonesians wake about about Islam.
