They never fail to hog the spotlight whenever billboard-smashing-chart-topping-grammy-winner-singer plans a concert to be held in Malaysia.
KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) – Malaysia‘s conservative Islamic party has called for R&B sensation
Rihanna to be banned from performing here next month, saying her outfits are too sexy, a report said Wednesday.
The Pan-Malaysian Islamic party (PAS), which has mounted protests against the United States over its support of Israel, said that concertgoers would also contribute to an outflow of local currency to the United States.
“Whether Rihanna realises it or not, we know that the taxes she has paid also contributed to the war in Gaza,” Kamaruzaman Mohamad, a PAS youth wing leader, told the Star daily.
Kamaruzaman said that the show planned for February 13, part of Rihanna’s “Good Girl Gone Bad” tour, would be an insult to Asian values as she often performed suggestively and wore skimpy outfits.
The event was “akin to insulting Eastern culture, belittling local artistes, internationally causing losses to the country’s economy and supporting Israel’s war policy, which is supported by America,” he said.
Kamaruzaman urged authorities who issue concert permits in Muslim-majority Malaysia to reject the organiser’s application.
The concert’s sponsor told the daily that Rihanna has agreed to follow local regulations for her performance but did not give details.
US singer Beyonce scrapped a planned concert in Malaysia last year due to fears of protests, while went ahead with a performance but was forced to cover up after complaints about her outfits.
PAS also mounted protests against Canadian rocker Avril Lavigne‘s concert last year after failing to have it banned, saying her performance would weaken the younger generation “morally and mentally.”
Seriously, they have too much free time in their head spinning connections and stories just cut off Msia with outside world. Do you really trust this kinda person leading you towards a better future? Do you want to stay as a country of your own yet being labelled like “katak dibawah tempurung” ? It’s a miracle this kinda people still exist in our advance world now. Sometimes, they are just being judgemental without judging themselves in the first place.
Do they think banning Rihanna will do any good? Money flowing to US? With Rihanna coming to malaysia, we are actually promoting spending and giving malaysia production company business. Morever, foreigneirs will fly to Msia to watch the concert. If Rihanna goes Singapore or Jakarta, please don’t tell me there won’t be any Malaysian flocking to our neighbouring countries? They are bringing more harm to us more than anything.
This is a joke to the world i tell you.
This is when I say i am actually not very proud to announce to people my nationality.
