Malaysian authorities have cancelled the concert-permit for Indonesian singer Inul Daratista following protests from some Islamic groups.
The concert was scheduled to be held last weekend in Kuala Lumpur before being cancelled at the very last minute, largely due to complaints from Islamic groups that claimed her concert is “erotic”.
Inul is controversial with her suggestive dance moves which she called it the Goyang Inul or Gerak Gerudi (literally drilling moves). I’ll leave it for your own interpretation of how “erotic” she is with the below video (just an example)…
Some trace-back… Pussycat Dolls were fined around US$3000 last time, Gwen Stefani was told to cover up, Linkin Park were told not to “shout”… and Beyonce was smart enough to cancel her concert before the authorities could shut her door.
If this trend keeps going, lots of the foreign artists will not consider having a concert in Malaysia and favour Singapore and other neighbouring countries instead.
