Lady Gaga Banned from Indonesia
Will Lady Gaga ever be allowed to perform in Indonesia?

Lady Gaga's signature stage antics have gone a little too for Indonesia, the pop star has been banned from performing in the country after a storm of protests over her raunchy routines.

The Poker Face singer was due to take her Born This Way Ball world tour to Jakarta in June 2012, but now faces having to scrap the sold-out concert after fundamentalist groups forced action from officials.

Protesters in the famously conservative country insisted that the pop star's racy lyrics and saucy costumes would undermine their traditional Islamic values.

The city's police force had demanded that officials revoke the flamboyant singer's permit for her show at the Bung Karno Stadium in Senayan in central Jakarta, and the National Police department has now complied with the request.

The ban is likely to force the cancellation of the show, but the event's promoter hadn't commented until late on 15 May.

The Mother Monster was previously hit with protests in South Korea and was forced to perform in Seoul in the face of a demonstration outside the venue in April this year.
