BRAVO!!.. Beyonce for letting us down!

And so sorry for you Razlan Ahmad Razali......

Beyonce Knowles won't be baring her booty in Malaysia after she refused to bow to radical Muslim student demands that she keep it covered.

Music industry sources said that Pineapple Concerts canceled her Nov. 1 Kuala Lampur gig because Beyonce balked. Officially, the Grammy-winning singer's agents say the cancelation was "due to a scheduling conflict."

Pineapple Concerts Chairman Razlan Ahmad Razali, noting he was "disappointed and frustrated," made clear the Islamic strictures were really to blame. Western performers face mounting pressure in Malaysia to keep skimpy clothes and steamy dance moves off the stage amid protests by conservative Muslims who believe liberals can corrupt young people.

Gwen Stefani made what she called "a major sacrifice" in August by wearing clothes that revealed little skin at a Kuala Lumpur concert after Muslim students and activists called for the performance to be canceled due to her sultry reputation.

Beyonce don't play that. Instead, she will perform in Jakarta , Indonesia , Razali said.
"Though Indonesia is also a Muslim country, it doesn't have all these issues that we have," he said. "She can perform as she likes there."
