    Erykah Badu Show Banned In Malaysia Over Singer's Allah Body Art

    [​IMG]
    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Muslim-majority Malaysia on Tuesday banned a planned concert by Erykah Badu after a photograph appeared showing the Grammy-winning singer with the Arabic word for Allah written on her body.
    The American R&B singer was scheduled to perform Wednesday in Kuala Lumpur, but some Muslim groups said Badu was an unsuitable role model for young Malaysians after seeing a publicity photo of her with what appeared to be temporary tattoos of the word Allah on her bare shoulders.
    A government committee that includes police and Islamic policy officials decided to forbid Badu's show because the body art was "an insult to Islam and a very serious offense," Information Minister Rais Yatim said in a statement.

    She has sexualized her image too much and displays many tattoos with conflicting ideologies (i.e. Islam and Judaism). Basically, she resembles Lady Gaga more than her old 'self'. Maybe she's having a "Lauryn Hill" moment.

    Peace

    Eryka is Eryka.

    Now I have watched Ms. Eryka Badu...She is an experimenter. She's always try'n something different. Sometimes she takes bold chances without think'n, but that doesn't make her a bad artist...
