Awwww… Beyonce delays Malaysian show amid Muslim criticism

Beyonce Knowles’s concert in Malaysia is being postponed now that Islamic conservatives claim the show would be immoral.  Knowles is highly regarded for her provocative clothing and choreography and had been scheduled for a stadium show this weekend. Promoters said the cancellation was solely Knowles’ decision. Two years ago she also cancelled a Malaysian show and went to Indonesia instead where the music critics apparently focus more on the music than the cleavage.
