Now that Gwen Stefani is “practically Malaysian,” why not?
From Agence France-Presse (thanks to JE):
JUST weeks after US singer Gwen Stefani covered up for a concert in Malaysia amid a furore over revealing outfits, her compatriot Beyonce is facing similar calls, Malayasian media says.
Beyonce is due to play Muslim-majority Malaysia in November, but will have to tone down her midriff-flaunting tops and thigh-skimming skirts, the New Straits Times newspaper reported.
It quoted concert organiser Razlan Ahmad Razali, who said that the singer would show less flesh than usual.
“As of now, her concert is still on,” he told the newspaper.
Stefani performed in Kuala Lumpur on August 21 despite protests from an Islamic students’ group which objected to her raunchy performances and outfits.
The platinum-blonde pop star made true to her promise to be a “good girl” and covered her tight-fitting tops in jackets.
She also sported leggings under her dresses and mini-skirts.
“I am practically Malaysian,” Stefani told 10,000 screaming fans, including Muslim mothers in traditional headdress toting their young daughters.
