Avril Lavinge: Too Hot For Malaysia?

In the future, International performers who wish to hold a concert or anything in Malaysia will have to wear a full face+full body clothes. And yeah, don't forget to put on your large black sunglasses and a pair of think mitten. In other words, if possible no flesh should be exposed at all. And one more thing, when you are performing you can only stand still or else you'll be deemed as "too sexy"! (Pun intended, just kidding).

Perhaps, the censorship board have seen this?
Or they HAVE READ this magazine?

It seems that Malaysia have strict dress code for female celebrities who will perform on stage. Well, some really "smart" party here had helped a lot with the bans and censorship. Both the sexy Beyonce and Christina had opted to "dump" Malaysia due to the strict dress code. Okay, their outfits mostly are revealing.

Why can't Beyonce and Christina put this on?
I personally this is cool! No joke!

First thing first, I want to make it clear that I'm not a big fan of this Canadian singer. But, I don't understand at all. I cannot comprehend why Avril's concert have to be called off. Her moves on stage is too sexy? What she did? She stripped??? Pas Youth (Malaysian Islamic Opposition) had slammed Avril saying that her on-stage moves is too sexy, too x-rated for us.

Here's what PAS' youth official Kamarulzaman Mohamed have got to say about Lavinge: "Lavigne's show was considered too sexy for us and would promote the wrong values just before independence day. We don't want our people, our teenagers, influenced by their performance. We want clean artists, artists that are good role models."

Finally...Malaysia's Arts, Culture and Heritage Ministry decided to cancel Lavigne's show because it was unsuitable to Malaysian culture and could not be held on Aug. 29, two days ahead of independence day. Did the ministry give in to pressures? I don't know. Your guess. Let's see who will be banned next. But I'm sure Avril and her Legions of fans will always remember the Malaysia's Arts, Culture and Heritage Ministry and PAS.

p.s.: Malaysia requires all performers to wear clothes without obscene or drug-related images and be covered from the chest to the knees. They must also refrain from jumping, shouting, hugging and kissing on stage.

Yes, so ridiculous of them to ban Avril's concert. How come they allowed Pussycat Dolls to perform here then? They dressed sexier than Avril. And how much influence can you get from a 2-hour concert? The "you can only stand still" while performing is laughable. I won't go to a concert and watch the singer singing standing still the whole 2 hours! If PAS said this, I can still accept, but for the Ministry to also agree? I just don't get it! Surely Malaysians will be the laughing stock right now!

What to do? There's rules and regulations everywhere. Ouh, so her concert is on again? At least her fans won't be dissapointed now. I'm not sure what she have to comply in order to enable her to sing!
