Rihanna will be LIVE in Kay Elle, ELLA-ELLA... ehh-ehh-ehh!
It's confirmed that the Barbados-born pop powerhouse will be coming to Kuala Lumpur next month. This is the first time she will perform in front of a Malaysian audience.
But a concert in Malaysia is not complete without the controversial "clothing rules" issue. Rihanna is required to perform in a 'decent' outfit i.e it must cover from the top of her chest, including shoulders, to her knees. Good thing to know she agreed to conform with the standards set by the Malaysian Government.
One thing for sure, she won't be dressed like this...
This also applies to international artistes previously having concerts here (ehem, Gwen Stefani - she had to wear leggings underneath her shorts while performing back in August 2008 , talk about HOT PANTS, HAHAHA!).
However during their summer tour in KL a few years back the burlesque/pop sensation Pussycat Dolls did not meet the requirement, hence the USD3000 fine! (hello what else can you expect, PCD is not PCD without hoochie mama all the way)
This strikes me as confusing - the costumes in such concerts will definitely be a little bit sexy, if not revealing, so why does the government approve these events in the first place?
Uh-oh, my words scream political/ religious chaos but what the hell...
