No need to politicise this issue la...

Simple fact is that you cant force a superstar on how to dress and cover up cleavages......

So perhaps it means if someone is born "too sexy" its a risk to this society and can cause a riot?.. (perhaps I don't have the right words but its more or less like that?)

Put it this way lah. Malaysia is now with people who insist protecting or prevention measures (from their POV and whatever their purposes for mileage or in the name of moral values) and its going to be unforgiving to many others who don't share the same views. As an example, perhaps you don't see any problem with your unmarried daughters going out partying or mingling with boys, but many others see this as wrong and a bad thing learnt from western culture. (ironically not so much hoohaa 3-4 decades ago). There WILL CONTINUE to exist people or groups who are VERY SENSITIVE and anything provocative or suggestive associated with sexual issues that can raise eyebrows are taboo. It'll all continue with these people shouting, rioting , interfering or pressure their way in till their objectives are met. They won't give a damn what others think.
As long as you, I and millions of others choose (or stuck here) to call this land home, you've to toletate this kind of phenomenon periodically. Its like that, and its not likely to change.
I bet this is not the end and we'll see more of this in future.

I was told the religion asked us to be tolerant in face of evils and temptation.
With enough faith and adequate teachings , we can withstand rasuah because it is evil and clevage because it is tempting.
But if we are not religious, we see rasuah as kopi money and clevage as susu lembu :D

It's good that the concert was called off. You cannot expect her to sing and dance in baju kurung and with the headscarf on. It just don't rhyme with her music.

don't think her decision was due to PAS's pressure..
More like it's due to all the restrictions imposed on her concert..
She won't be the last act to skip Malaysia.

2-3 decades ago there were dance troups performing in hotels and like Genting. As you'd realize, French can can and some other dances can have costumes which can raise eyebrows here (of course not in the west). There wasn't much of a problem then. Its NOW that these issues that are associated with provocative or sexy are somewhat questionable and seen with contempt. I have known there's guidelines to any international artists performing here and they have to perform a full dress rehersal in front of a group of government authorities, including PDRM and they approve the show for the organizers. But then again, now we have groups making noise even before the artists arrive here. Its a FIASCO!

Come on man! Malaysia is a religious country with high moral values. We cant allow a performer like her to be jumping around the stage inciting the crowd, do we? We will have to make do with the likes of Aretha Franklin or Dionne Warwick at least these old crooners one time great divas have got high moral values and got nothing to exibit yah!

Artistes are skipping MY and they are flocking to Middle East cities like Abu Dhabi where they can shake their derrieres and boobies without anyone wagging a finger or threatening repercussion. :D

Hey, you're quite right actually, I've come across MANY artists performing here are actually or coincidently on the brink of retirement (or already). Tak laku in their own place, so come here lor!..coincidental?

I reckon you people don't see the bigger truth. MALAYSIANS CANNOT BE TRUSTED, so must have preventive or protective measures. MALAYSIANS are seen not to know how to regulate themselves.. So there ARE fellow rakyat who think they're doing all a service and insistently think so. They're NOT JOKERS!... they're real flers with nothing better to do and with inherent intent to chastise the country wherever it suits them. Sorry to say but its unfortunate this is a phenomenon quite apparent in this country. Moreever the garmen don't really have to do anything, there'll be enough groups of flers doing all the legwork. All it need is say a very sexy or provocative dressed tart on stage and there'll be a riot. Why do you think Malaysia (the other land across the causeway is also one) is a very OVER REGULATED COUNTRY on numerous issues?. Get my point!

I got remember watching those can-can dancers in the genting theater club in the early 80s. I could even go close to them and shoot them right under their very high-kickin' splittin' thighs! But I don tink can post those photos here lah. Sure pasti tak boleh PASs one! Waka-waka-wakakakaka!

i) Beyonce sang and pranced on stage during the recently concluded Formula 1 post-race concert...

ii) Singapore has Hooters Restaurant at Collyer Quay and their Tony Romas baby ribs are pork ribs...

iii) Singapore allows bar top and pole dancing...

iv) Singapore approved "Crazy Horses" where there were bare-top dancers on stage (until the outlet collapsed due to poor financial management)...

v) Gwen Stefani as well as Avril Lavigne wore bikini-like costumes on stage during their concerts...

So, are you sure both countries are 'over-regulated' or just Bolehland?

I would relate that to females who're naturally endowed with nice curves, body features or sultry looks that just about anyone of the opposite sex or females themselves would casually, admire or turn heads and raise eyebrows. Its perhaps the dressing could enhance the sexiness, (since indecent exposure is likely morally wrong or damaging) and could stir the imagination in man from mild to running wild. :)
I believe there's some Malay actresses who've been labeled as very sexy by fans (whatever they're thinking of). I may have seen pics of them and yes, they're endowed with features that perhaps other ladies may envy.

yup, you are right
the way i see it in malaysia, this nice curves are 'legal' but shall be covered a bit :(
a longer skirt and a smaller cleavage would probably do. the question is if the artists agree to that. they might say "you see my show or no show", but you are for sure not makin my show" :cool:

Seems like any performer that comes from the West bringing in a slice of their culture to this country is a no-no for the likes and thinking of a group of people. Well, it is pretty clear, this a muslim country, but i feel sorry for the fans because they can't get a glimpse of her here. I guess only Singapore is the place to go if you have to money to spend to see her anyway. I've seen sexier performer than Beyonce in Arab!!! ..and they are cool about it!!! Sheeshh...

Let me say this once. Going by the dominant religion here, its mandatory for adult females who're forbidden to expose other parts of the human body, except face, hands and feet and only to husband or immediate family members. The whole objective is quite clear and serves to suppress any immoral or lusty thoughts in a mortal man's mind. I could say a Muslim artist is forbidden to use the body as an instrument to "sell and promote" her fame. In short, the body, sexy or whatever, is not to be used as an instrument for fame. Muslims are forbidden from this so it may apply to other foreign artists who may have been doing just that. Ok.. it may be common to see some local artists may be in direct conflict with this but thats entirely their own doing and own risk if they run foul with some local authority or group.

so since we have agreed on the terms and conditions of this country, come to the point:

when first heard beyonce coming to k.l., told my wife immediately "not gonna happen" and the whole malaysia probably knew that as well.

there are certain written and unwritten rules that e.g. beyonce does not meet, so why organise a concert in the first place?
needs approval, needs a venue (2nd approval check) and and and...
in any other country someone would loose big bucks on that and never even try it, so who is making bucks in that whole comadey? (It's not the first of it's kind, is it?)

wonder where this approvals come from and why they always need the "bad boys" to stop such thing that is not supposed to happen in the first place :confused:

It's ridiculous that Beyonce is subject to such scrutiny over her dressing and 'sexiness' whereas someone like Akon with controversies looming over him (eg: disgustingly lewd acts upon a 15yr old girl on stage) is allowed to perform with no problems? siiighhh...
