Beyonce refuses to submit to Malaysia’s dress code for women performers, so she has canceled her concert, unlike Gwen Stefani who submitted to the country’s Islamic rule. Good for Beyonce, I say. I don’t like her music or style myself, but I appreciate her refusal to submit to Muslim groups:
Pop star Beyonce Knowles has cancelled her Malaysian concert after she reportedly refused to cover up and censor her raunchy stage show.
The Crazy In Love singer is said to have told promoters she was not willing to tone down her Kuala Lumpur show on November 1 to appease Muslim critics.
Pineapple Concerts issued a statement on Friday announcing the cancellation but refused to give a reason.
The 26-year-old star had been asked by Pineapple Concerts to make her show more “family friendly” following Muslim protests.
Razlan Ahmad Razali, chairman of Pineapple Concerts, said: “We’ve informed Beyonce’s management about this issue of clothes, but it takes some of the fun out of it.
“Beyonce won’t be able to do the kind of show here that she does elsewhere.”
