Related Video: Lady Gaga engagement rumours are falseDespite Lady Gaga having sold out the Gelora Bung Karno stadium -- a 52,000 seat venue -- for her Born This Way Ball in Jakarta, the pop star and her team have been banned from entering the country amidst claims she would corrupt Indonesian youths.Speaking to AFP, Saud Usman Nasution, a national police spokesman, said: "We will not issue a permit for the Lady Gaga concert in Jakarta... The concert will have to be cancelled."
The conservative group Islamic Defenders Front has mounted protests against Gaga entering the country with the world's largest Muslim population, vowing to stop the 'Judas' singer at their border."We will stop her from setting foot on our land. She had better not dare spread her satanic faith in this country," FPI Jakarta chairman Salim Alatas told AFP.Alatas called her style "vulgar" as well as "sexual and indecent" and that they were at risk of having their children's "morality destroyed".Gaga requires a letter of recommendation from the Jakarta police to enable her to perform at the venue – something she has not received. It's unclear as to whether the concert organisers will try to obtain a new permit for an alternative venue in the city from police.Despite some vocal criticism of her tour in Asia, Lady Gaga has refused to tone down her on-stage antics.
