LADY Gaga has been told to axe her Indonesian concert by cops after complaints her act is too “vulgar”.
Police chiefs declined to give the “Born This Way” singer a licence to perform in capital Jakarta on June 3 after Islamic hard-liners vowed to bar the "erotic" singer from the country over fears she could corrupt the youth.
The Islamic Defenders Front has staged protests over the 26-year-old’s raunchy style. It had pledged to intercept her at the airport if she tried to enter the country over concerns she would undermine Indonesia's moral fibre.
The movement’s Jakarta boss, Salim Alatas, said: “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.
"This is dangerous."
Cops have also received objections from the National Ulema Council, Indonesia’s top Islamic body. Gaga cannot perform unless police in Jakarta provide a letter of recommendation.
But police spokesman Saud Usman Nasution snubbed the star, announcing today: “The concert will have to be cancelled.
“We will not issue a permit for the Lady Gaga concert in Jakarta.”
A senior police commander, named only as Rikwanto, added: “The first thing we’ve heard from various public leaders is that Lady Gaga doesn’t deserve the attention of so many people.
“They said her outfits are too sexy, indulgent and erotic.”
Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim nation where fundamentalists have been growing in influence.
Fan Mariska Renata said: “I’m very disappointed. We are mature enough to be able to separate our own moral values from arts and culture."
The promoters, Big Daddy Productions, have sold more than 50,000 tickets for the keenly-awaited “Born This Way Ball” tour concert and declined to say whether it had been cancelled.
It's not yet clear whether Gaga — real name Stefani Germanotta — will be able to stage the concert in an alternative city.
Under 18s were banned from the sell-out Asian tour in South Korea after similar objections.
