So this time the Lady didn't get her way. Lady Gaga has been plagued by protests in Asia during her "Born This Way Ball" tour (like the Christian Koreans who tried to pray her away—but failed), but the Muslim protestors in Indonesia, who seem to think her costumes are too sluttyhave caused Gaga to cancel her planned June 3 concert in Jakarta at the 52,000-seat Gelora Bung Karno stadium in Jakarta

Islamic hard-liners—like these protestors who are holding signs that tell Gaga to go to Hell?—and conservative lawmakers said her sexy costumes, suggestive dance moves, and "vulgar" style could corrupt the nation's youth. If only.
