Beyoncé asked to tone down live act; Malaysians not yet ready for singer’s jelly

    BeyoncéConcert officials for a booking company in Malaysia, a country not exactly known for its permissive social views, have warned Beyonce to tone down her racy stage act for a November 1 concert at which the singer is scheduled to perform. Razarian Ahmad Razali, chairman of Pineapple Concerts, the company responsible for organizing the show, laments, “It’s a pity to restrict her, because her costumes are all tasteful and glamorous.” While that statement is at best dubious, Beyoncé should take note that certain aspects of her stage act are considered illegal ” so no hugging, kissing, obscene clothing or drug-related messages. Recently, Malaysian organizers of a Pussycat Dolls concert were fined $2,857 after being accused of breaking the rules, which is regrettable, but come on ” the Pussycat Dolls in Malaysia? That’s almost as bad an idea as booking 2 Live Crew at the Branson Hall of Fame Theatre.
