JoeMyGod reports the Lady Gaga concert scheduled to take place next month in the Indonesian capital has been officially cancelled after the performer was refused a permit to perform in the country.

Police site the reason for the refusal was due to security concerns as several Islamic groups objected to the concert.

Salim Alatas, the Jakarta head of hardline Islamic Defender Front (FPI), called the performer “dangerous” saying, "She's a vulgar singer who wears only panties and a bra when she sings and she stated she is the envoy of the devil's child and that she will spread satanic teaching."

Satan could not be reached for comment.
