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.

  • hey y'all

    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.

  • linseu

    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…

  • lacyd

    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.

  • anonymousone

    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.

  • Sandy

    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!!!

  • Delta Diva

    @ 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.

  • d c dina

    why should an american star have to compromise themselves to perform in malaysia, b is is one of the world’s biggest stars, cancelling this show doesn’t count, why contribute to the oppressed state of women in that & many others countries, get informed people, you embarass yourself on a regular basis, so sad

  • 504okaay

    I’M ONE OF THOSE FOLKS WHO NEED SOME ME TIME AWAY FROM BEYONCE MEANING SHE’S ALL OVER & I’M TIRED OF SEEING HER, HOWEVER I AGREE WITH HER NOT COMPLYING WITH THEIR WISHES. WHEN HAS ANYONE SEEN HER PERFORMING WITH CLOTHES COVERING HER WHOLE BODY FROM NECK TO ANKLES??? I CAN’T REMEMBER ONE INSTANCE SO WHY WOULD YOU CHANGE WHAT YOU (THE MUSLIM FANS) HAVE COME TO KNOW AS BEYONCE ?? HOW ARE YOU GONNA DICTATE HOW SOMEONE SHOULD DRESS FOR “HER” SHOW…..WEIRD. THAT WAS YOUR USED TO SEEING SO PAY TO GO SEE OR STAY HOME !!

  • slimgoody

    I wouldn’t have changed either, they knew how she dressed before they scheduled her…she’s not Muslim or whatever they are, she doesn’t have to comply to their rules…

  • OUCH

    HA HA HA SO camcam781 ADMITTED THAT B1TCHONCE DRESSES LIKE A HOE.

    I GUESS THAT MEANS SHE IS A HOE.

    BUT WE ALREADY KNOW THAT.

  • Whoa

    She shouldn’t have to cover up her body. If they want her to perform then let her perform. She doesn’t have to conform to their crap. Good for her. She’s not Muslim and doesn’t subscribe to their regulations As for them if they won’t let her perform, good for them. Either way both will be fine. She’ll just perform everywhere else and they are only making their citizens suffer.

  • bee

    If I come to your house and you have certain rules in your house, if, I accept your invitation then that means I have to adhere to the rules in your house. Every country is not America. Some countries actually do have moral standards.

    Is her show that dependent on her being half naked that she just can’t put on a dress and dance and sing. I don’t get that. Unless she is just tired and don’t want to go.

  • NAIS

    DC Dina ur an idiot if you think being the “biggest star” should make a nation compromise their religious ideals. i lived with 2 muslim chicks in college they covered up bcuz its what they believed not because they had to. Have any of u BEEN over seas, a lot of places remind u of America. If B was gonna perform in the 1st place, how oppressed could they be? Mayb if we all could believe in something we’d be better off. Really what has B done for u latly? How has she enhanced your life or spirit.

  • nahnah

    real artists don’t have to jump around the stage like they’re in some voodoo ceremony, and fall on their necks to sell. if she really believed in herself, she would not have canceled.

    she has become too accustomed to her ways of acting a fool on stage.

  • nahnah

    look at the pic with her in the silver dress. she looks like she’s having some paranoia attack or something. i’m not sure what this world has come to, but, umm, what type of art is that?

  • for serious

    i’m not a fan of bey in the slightest, but i will say she made the right choice. if they want her to perform, let her do it the way she is comfortable. besides, bey isn’t muslim the last I heard….
