Ke$ha Concert Canceled: Singer Defends Not Playing In Malaysia
Ke$ha was scheduled to perform in Malaysia on Saturday, but officials claimed that Ke$ha’s concert was canceled because it was found unfit for the country. In response to fans who are disappointed she didn’t go on with the concert, Ke$ha has said that it wasn't an option.
Authorities in the Muslim-majority nation felt that if Ke$ha’s show went on as planned that it would “hurt cultural and religious sensitivities,” according to MSN. The decision to ban her performance at Kuala Lumpur stadium was last minute, affecting the thousands of ticket holders.
If it had been up to Ke$ha, the show would have gone on. The “Blow“ singer took to Twitter following the cancellation to explain that it was not her decision.
to be clear. I did NOT cancel. I was not allowed to play. and then I was going to play anyways and was threatened with imprisonment.
