Lady Gaga is so terrified that Islamic terrorists might attack her and/or her mega-concert in Indonesia, she cancelled the upcoming show, her reps confirmed.
Gaga’s management team announced today there were major security concerns regarding the June 3 gig in Jakarta, the nation’s capital city.
Extremists were calling to ban Gaga, fearing that her risque costumes, song lyrics and embrace of homosexuality would corrupt Muslim youths.
The Indonesian Council of Ulema chairman, Cholil Ridwan, fervently urged a boycott, saying Gaga “intends to destroy the nation’s morality.”

Indonesia’s Little Monsters, revolt!
Lady Gaga, who is scheduled to perform in Jakarta next month, has just been banned by the nation following protests from hardline Islamic critics.
The concert drew vehement opposition from many in the world’s most populous Muslim nation, due to her controversial persona and racy getups.
A spokesman for the Indonesian national police has confirmed that the singer has been denied a permit for her June 3 show, thus negging the show.
It would have been the biggest stop on her Asian tour, having been set to take place at the 52,000-seat Gelora Bung KarnoMore >
Lady Gaga, who just broke up with Taylor Kinney, says that when she does decide to get married, it will be for good. Divorce is not an option.
Though she’s been known to shock with her outlandish outfits and raunchy stage shows, the Born This Way singer insists marriage is for life.
On The Conversation With Amanda De Cadenet (so much for that self-imposed media blackout) which aired in the US last week, she said:
“My grandmother… was married to my grandfather for 60 years. My parents are still together, 30 years. Divorce is not an option for me.”
“It’s like, ‘I’m gonna get married andMore >

“There’s just no room for anything else. Her work is all-consuming.”
Still, the couple of 10 months was showing signs of cracking for some time, even before rumors of her possibly getting back together with Luc Carl.

Lady Gaga is under fire in Korea – and not even from the Northern half.
Christian groups in South Korea called on Friday for the pop star to cancel her concert there, saying it’s “pornographic” and pro-homosexuality.
South Korea’s government has already bowed to public pressure and banned people under 18 from attending, but certain protesters said that was not enough.
“Even adults can’t see her performance which is too homosexual and pornographic,” said Rev. Yoon Jung-hoon, organizer of “Civilians Network against the Lady Gaga Concert.”
“Some people can simply accept this as anotherMore >
It is on between the Beliebers and the Little Monsters.
After Lady Gaga usurped Justin Bieber’s throne on Twitter this month, taking over as the most-followed person on that social networking service, a fan of the teenage sensation took to the Internet and – as excerpted by The New York Post – wrote:
“To all beliebers this is operation unfollow Lady Gaga. I’m sorry if your a ‘little monster’ but don’t [you] want Justin to be #1 followed on Twitter?”
As a result of this campaign, the hastag #OperationUnfollowGaga has sprung up on Twitter.
Naturally, Lady Gaga’s followers aren’t on boardMore >
Lady Gaga may be cutting herself off from interviews, but in her last sit-down before that self-imposed time out, the star’s giving us plenty to talk about.
Showing her maternal side in a recent chat with Oprah Winfrey (airing tomorrow night on OWN), Gaga says she not only wants kids, but a lot of them.
A “soccer team” full of them, to quote the Mother Monster.
“Yeah, yeah, I do,” a (relatively) conservatively dressed Gaga, 25, told the talk show host, 58, when asked if she was serious about wanting a large family.
“I mean maybe I’m being a bit superfluous [about the soccer team], but IMore >
Are tensions rising between Madonna and Lady Gaga?
In an interview with Newsweek (via the Daily Beast), Madonna commented that Lady Gaga’s 2011 single “Born This Way” was a “redo” of her “Express Yourself.”
“I thought, this is a wonderful way to redo my song [1989's "Express Yourself"],” she says. “I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was… interesting.”
High praise … not. Here’s a side-by-side comparison:
Madonna herself is hardly the only one who’s noticed the similarity. NME asked Gaga last year if the song wasMore >
Someone locked lips with Lady Gaga on New Year’s Eve.
If you guessed that person was her boyfriend Taylor Kinney, you would be … incorrect! But you’re still up on your Gaga gossip and we commend you for that.

With a series of just-released photos in which she makes no attempt to hide her affection, the 25-year-old is finally acknowledging what we’ve known for months: She and The Vampire Diaries‘ Taylor Kinney are an item, and a cute one at that.

She was born to be a megastar, apparently. With a staggering $90 million earned in 2011, Lady Gaga made more money than any female singer, by a mile.
Taylor Swift was second with half of that total … a paltry $45 million.
Katy Perry was right behind Swift with $44 million, while Beyonce Knowles and Rihanna finished off the top five, earning $35 million and $29 million respectively.
Gaga’s impressive earnings were mainly due to her tour, which grossed $1.3 million a night, as well the Born This Way singer’s many endorsement deals.

A bad hair day is a major emergency issue for most women and all are quick to hide a bed head, a bad cut and some serious hair color catastrophe. Being a celebrity can either let you get away with a few forgiving paparazzi shots and if you’re hair is anything close to Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, you either own it or just get used to the site of gaping mouths.
