Ke$ha is NOT welcome in Malaysia … as the government has banned her from performing in the country because of her raunchy tendencies.
According to reports, Malaysia’s Ministry of Communications and Multimedia sent off a letter to Ke$ha’s promoter Livescape on Friday, saying that her request to be allowed to perform in the country has been rejected due to ‘reasons of religion and culture.’ In other words, Ke$ha – who likes singing about sex and alcohol – will be an offensive spectacle to watch.
The promoter also said that Ke$ha even agreed to adjust her lyrics and wardrobe to comply with the Muslim country’s standards, but it just wasn’t enough to sway the authorities.
Ke$ha was scheduled to perform today in Kuala Lumpur … but after she arrived the country Friday evening and was informed of the ban, she became visibly upset, to the point that she even reportedly tried to carry on with the concert despite the ban.
‘To be clear. I did not cancel. I was not allowed to play. And then I was going to play anyways and was threatened with imprisonment,’ the frustrated singer tweeted after the news broke.
When contacted by local outlet The Star to comment on the singer’s jail threat claim, a spokesman for the ministry refused to comment on it. Instead, he confirmed that the decision to shut down her concert was unanimous.
