Last we heard, Lady Gaga’s planned show in the Indonesian capital Jakarta next month was off, after she was refused a visa amid fears of mass protests against a performance that the Islamic Defenders’ Front has branded “satanic”.
But, while a spokesman for the country’s national police recently told Reuters that Gaga had been refused a visa to enter the country, it seems this may not be the case. Although the full scale stage show seen in other countries on the tour will definitely not happen there.
Posting on Twitter, Gaga said: “The Jakarta situation is twofold: Indonesian authorities demand I censor the show and religious extremist [groups] separately are threatening violence. If the show does go on as scheduled, I will perform the ‘Born This Way Ball’ alone”.
