Ke$ha tried to defy Malaysia concert ban
Pop superstar Ke$ha was due to perform in Malaysia earlier this week (October 26), but the concert was axed because the country's authorities decided not to give her permission.
Her raunchy outfits and provocative songs apparently swayed the decision and she was denied the opportunity to treat her Animals to a live set in the area as her show didn't comply with the “religious sensitivities and cultural values of Malaysians.”
It has now been revealed that she sought information on what would happen if she ignored the ban and went ahead with the gig anyway and Jason Kong, head of PR for promoters Livescape, told a Malaysian newspaper:
"We told her we would advise against it because the authority will shut down the show."
On the day of the scheduled performance, Ke$ha tweeted: "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."
A day later, she returned to the social networking site and added: "Yesterday was hard for me.... I just wanna share my music and life with you guys. can't wait to let you in."
