Beyonce’s Kuala Lumpur leg of her world tour was canceled because of protests from Malaysia’s Muslim groups. Apparently her scantily clad routines do not adhere to the Malaysian Muslim dress code which doesn’t allow female performers to show any skin from the top of the chest down to the knees. It’s reported that Beyonce refused to comply with their request to cover up so the show has been canceled.

Gwen Stefani covered up for Malaysia when she performed, so this must be that inner-diva coming out of your girl Bey. It’s not that hard to go a day without using that sex sells gimmick. She needs to throw on a smock and perform for her Malaysian fans.

    I would just cover up. I agree it’s not that hard to go a day.

    I don’t know how much notice she was given, but that means she’d have to get someone to design all new costumes for her AND her performers. That could be time consuming and costly. (Of course she has the dough) Nonetheless, finding cute and comfy clothes to dance in might be challenging?

    Hey to each their own, but i mean what is the big deal about covering up every once in a while??

  • Babegyrl

    And we care WHY……. Keep it moving… Next!!!!!

    Maybe she feels her show won’t be good enough if she just sits there and sings without being scantily clad

    She still has the right to express herself in whatever outfit she wants to wear. They are probably not concerned about what she is wearing when they are watching her videos.

    Frankly I don’t blame her…one slip up and those folks might lock her up. She is making enough dough and I’m sure she is going to use that time to unfortunately work on more music. Take a break Beyonce, take a break…

    Well I guess when you don’t need the money, one performance lost wouldn’t hurt. And man does she look like a robot on crack in that one picture.

    Sorry, I am backing B on this one. I HATE double standards.

    I respect the right of those who are followers of the Muslim faith to believe as they do. I disagree with their views on women. I always have and always will.

    I am glad she canceled the show.

    If they had a problem with the way she dresses; which is not new to them or anyone that watches TV or have seen her concerts on DVD knows how she dresses for her concerts; they should have never booked her in the first place.

    Why do you people want her to take a break? Bey is just 26, she is in the prime of her life. She’s out making money, doing what she loves. Do you really want her to end up like Monica, Brandy, or others who took a break and now they can’t sell records.

    While I do agree with the folks who say “enough with the sexiness and more talent”, I have to say good for Beyonce for not complying with Malaysia’s request for her to cover up. That is a form of opression to make women covver thier bodies for what ever reason.

    B is B. She flaunts her body and gyrates across the stage, but it is who she is. Why should she wear a full fit? Them Malaysian men (and women)know doggone well they like her for that.

    She is letting down her fans there, unfortunately every country isn’t like america, but the people there still love her and should be able to see her, CHANCES ARE, HER FANS AREN’T ASKING HER TO COVER UP!

  • Karma

    *Cover…oops

  • OUCH

    THATS THE POINT.

    B1TCHONCE KNOWS THAT SHE DOESNT HAVE THAT MUCH TALENT AND ALL SHES GOOD AT IS SHAKING HER FAT AZZ.

    ITS NOT A BIG DEAL ,JUST COVER UP,ITS NOT LIKE YOU HAVE 2 DO IT 4EVER.

    DUMB B1TCH!!!

    @ Karma

    I completely agree with your statements. If people watched the news instead of videos, they would see that women in this oppressed coutries are fighting for equals rights. They want to dress, talk, walk, and live freely without being worried that they will get stoned to death for showing too much leg…I wish Bey would use this as a tool to get some women’s rights issues out there.
